About Nadi

The Rishis of Ancient India Applied their minds and discovered many arts and sciences for the well-being of future generations of mankind. One such science is Astrology. There are several branches in Astrology viz Horoscopy., i.e. casting and reading horoscopes based on the Positions  of planets at the time of birth of a Person and the movements of the Planets across the Zodiac. This is a well developed science as evidenced from ancient manuscripts like Brihat samhita,  Jathaka Paarijatha etc. Palmistry, Numerology and Naadi reading are the other disciplines. Experiences our family has so far and feed back from our clientele makes us to learn that the predictions being expounded through the records of palm leaves we preserve, aptly suits to the natives only 80 percent that is too only to 80 percent of the total visitors.The remedies being prescribed  here in the holy script including the temple poojas are left to the sheer choice of the individuals concerned.
These days we hear about people with Powers of extra sensory preceptions. The Rishis were holy sages, who occupied themselves in concentrating on the one divine being - paramatma.

             They far exceeded the power of ESP people. More than that they were able to know the future by their fore-sight. With this foresight,  the Rishis like Agasthiya, Kousika, Vasishta have given predictions for the human being occupying this world. Let us take for instance any particular moment of the Day. Many lives are born in this world at that given moment, human lives, plant life and animals. The Rishis have ignored the last two and confined their predictions only to human beings. And that too not for all the humans.  Predictions are given only for such of those presons who the Rishis out of their foreknowledge knew will come forward to study these Predictions. The exact age in which each such person will come for this study have also been foretold by Rishis.


These predictions were inscribed on palmleaves. Like many other arts and sciences of ancient days they were also in Sanskrit. Later days, the Tamil kings gathered all such palm leaves irrespective of the subjects, they dealt upon and stored them in big libraries. These leaves which are the repository of the Wisdom of ancient Rishis woud otherwise have been lost to us. The king of Tanjore, a true patron of Arts and Sciences, found a reserve for these plam leaves in his palace library. He also got them translated in to ancient Tamil with the help of Pandits. The palm leaves kept by us are those which we got from our ancestors. We have not professed at any time that these are the original palm leaves Purported to be written by the rishis and obtained by us in the days of British rule in the auction.

     Before revealing the predictions, each person is first identified by furnishing his date of birth details, planetary positions as at the time of his / her birth, parentage, names of some close relatives, position in life. marital status etc. After this, the predictions for the individual follow from the date of his studying the Nadi to his last day. The past, i.e. the happenings from date of birth to date of studying the leaf is not covered. This is probably in order to avoid any complications arising in human lives.


When a thumb impression from a native is obtained it is handed over by the reader at the library. The palm-leaf bundles are classified & indexed in the library according to thumb impression to facilitate easy searching of the bundles. For each thumb impression there are likely to be around 5 to 6 bundles; each such bundle will contain between 50 to 100 leaves. The leaf of one particular  individual may be found out in the first bundle or in any other bundle among the six. some times it may not be found out, as the predictions from this holy script is confined to some limited souls. Hence, the process of finding out this specific leaf is laborious and time consuming. Because the reader has to read out one statement from the first leaf and if it is confirmed by the native, he will read out the second statement to verify its veracity. If this statement does not hold true for the native the reader will have to go on searching leaf after leaf, bundle after bundle to trace out the one leaf in which all the particulars concerning the Native correctly appear., To expedite this process the Native has to extend his full co-operation i.e., he should listen to the reading carefully and answer correctly.

This results in the tracing out of not only the leaf but also the first Kaandam also called General Kaandam representing the native's lagna. The General Kaandam will also furnish brief predictions of the remaining 12 houses of the Native's birth chart, If detailed predictions of any other house are required, they can be studied in the relevant Kaandam given in the Annexure.

        For acquiring the good results, as extended by this holy script, the Rishis insist that the Native should be free from the evil influence of all their previous birth sins. Therefore, the rishis suggest and specifies the performance of certain parihaaras (remedies).  If these Remedies are performed with full involvement, the Rishi assures the happening of the events predicted by him. These are found in separate chapters called Shanthi & Deeksha(No 13 & 14).



      The predictions of the Naadi are all in Tamil Language in poetic form and using code words for astrological and other terms. These are not commonly understood by educated Tamilians. These are deciphered by the Asans, Readers who are trained in Our Head Office, for 7 to 10 years in reading in palm leaves and interpreting it, in simple spoken language in Tamil. In the case of those who do not know Tamil, these are translated into Hindi or English.

        More than understanding the meaning of the poetic form , the Asans have to interpret the predictions correlating to many changes that have taken place in modern times. In olden days the educational and professional fields were limited. But nowadays, there are hundreds of specialized fields. So interpreting the old Tamil words to modern vocation, needs great skill and experience. This difficulty is there in Natal Astrological predictions as well and lots of researches are going on to interpret it correctly, correlating to modern needs. We are also trying in our own way, to give the nearest possible interpretation for the old words with the vast practical knowledge gained by us while giving predictions, the customers also have to take into account a realistic view of things predicted. By taking into account his educational qualification, social status, financial status, levels, up to which he can aspire to climb reasonably etc. There may be some exceptions where an ordinary person may rise upto the phenomenal level which can not be imagined. These exceptional cases will however be explained adequately in the Naadi prediction itself.

       To understand the difficulty in the interpretation of words, we have given below some concrete cases we came across in the Bangalore centre itself.

      As regards education, the words, commonly used are – He will be well qualified in the Athi Naveena meaning highly modernized type of education, and Sukshma subjects, that is minute/intricate subjects. These are generally taken by us as Engineering Education especially computer related. The word Naveena may mean differently at different times. Some 30 years ago, it may be Civil or Electronics Engineering. Later it may be Chemical or Electronics. Now, it may refer to computer and Information Technology. Tomorrow it may be space and satellite related subjects. Similarly Sukshma Subjects may mean specialization in any subject like Ph.D., or Doctorate especially in Science subjects. One has only to take the clue that the customer is fit to take up higher specialized study. The predictions also refer to research studies, there may be breaches. These are to be decided one by one, taking into account his academic qualification and aptitude for higher studies.

     In the case of one Income Tax Commissioner, his profession was indicated as one of collecting revenue of the Government, viz. Thandal Margam. These are different types of Revenue Department like Income Tax , Sales Tax , Customs and other revenues. The exact profession can only be surmised by the customer. Similarly the customers employed in Bank are stated to be working in a place where money is given and taken. There so many departments dealing with money like R.B.I., Banks, Insurance Companies, Non Banking companies etc. . We can only take a conclusion, that it is good for the customer to be employed in Banking Business. Similarly in the case of Business Profession, whether they are employed in trade or in the manufacturing field and if so in what type of production they are dealing with are said. The Business field is so vast. There also one has to infer the correct vocation, from the general prediction given.

      In the political field, predictions are given, whether they will have public relations with power and authority or not. References come that the customer will be elected to Kizh Sabhapor (lower house) or Mel Sabhapor (upper house). We know that these houses are in the state assemblies and Parliament. Such prediction can best be understood by the customer, taking into account his political status, his influence in State or Central level, is financial as well as popular capacity or nominate his candidature stand for Assembly or Central level elections.

     In one case, the President of a National Party at State Level, got the predictions some time in January to March in 1998 that he would get the Agrasana Position with immense power, honour and influence. The word Agrasana means Chief or Supreme Head. We including the customer also remember the Mahabharata Story of Bhishma Pithamaha proposing Lord Krishna, name for the Agrasana post for the Raja Suya Yaga. So, we presumed that he may get the Chief Minister’s post, even though all of us including our respected customer, knew very well, that there is no possibility of his becoming the Chief Minister, as his party had completely been decimated in the previous elections. In the subsequent elections held in February 2000, his party got just 22 seats and customer was also disheartened. Within a month of the election, there was a coalition Govt. and all MLAs, became Ministers and our customer became the speaker of the Legislative assembly and all of us know, the powers and influence of speakers, in coalition era, capable of appointing and dismissing ministries. So, the predicted word Agrasana was meant to be a speaker. In retrospect, we realized, we missed to discern the subtle difference between the Executive head and Honorary head. This recent concrete case will explain how agile one has to be, in interpreting the words, so wisely used by the old Rishis in the Sukshma Naadi predictions. In this case, we know the correct dictionary meaning as given in the Authentic Madras University dictionary and the precedence in the Mahabharata Story, yet the predictions went a little astray in our interpretation only. We therefore appeal to our customers again, to take the realistic view of the predictions, taking their capacities, influence and their positions standing in the party, state of the party at the time of predictions etc.

     In another case of a prediction to a High Court Judge, we had interpreted, that he would retire at the age of 63 and he was taken aback, as it meant retirement 2 years earlier. The words appearing in to the Naadi could be interpreted to mean 63 years of age or 65 years of age, viz. Aruban Eir Moon is 60 + 2 + 3 or 63. When the Honorable Justice pointed out that the age of retirement of Justice was 65, we stood corrected and he was kind enough to appreciate our laminations. In fact, we were not aware that the age of superannuation varies from 55 to 65 at present. But the sages, through their foresight, correctly forecast what is going to happen many years later.

     With the above types of experience, we are also trying our best to interpret the predictions as nearly as possible to the present day situations.
