History of Nadi Astrology Horoscope Requirements

Nadi is an ancient Indian method of Astrology to learn about one's past, present and the future. It is said that thousands of years ago, the great sages of India had the power to look into the past and future of the entire universe and recorded the life of each human being who either lived, were living or were to be born. At some point of time, those findings were documented on palm leaves in an ancient Tamil script, which can now be deciphered only by expert Nadi astrologers.

Nadi in Tamil means “in search of“. Because an individual goes in search of his predictions to this system, it came to be known as Nadi Astrology. The palm leaf inscriptions, otherwise known as Nadies, are scattered throughout India. Some of these palm leaf inscriptions available in Tamil Nadu were standardized and classified nearly 2000 years ago during the reign of the Cholas in South India. There are a number of palm leaf inscriptions available named after the Rishis who composed them. There are only a few Nadi readers available who can interpret the inscriptions which are written in the poetic language. There are various Nadies, palm leaf inscriptions available like Agastya Nadi, Shuka Nadi, Brahma Nadi, Kaushika Nadi, Vasishta Nadi, etc

Each Nadi is a collection of the inscriptions of a particular Rishi, written in Vatta Ezhuthu, a Tamil script, with a sharp, nail-like instrument called Ezhuthani. The palm leaves are preserved by the application of peacock oil on auspicious occasions. These palm leaves are still preserved in the Saraswathi Mahal library of Tanjore (Thanjavur), in the state of Tamil Nadu. The primary centre for Nadi Shastra/Nadi Astrology is in Vaitheeswarankoil, near Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu.

The palm leaf inscription of an individual is spotted out on the basis of that individual's thumb impression. Modes found in the thumbs of the people on the earth are classified into more than 100 categories. The Nadi, palm leaf inscriptions are arranged according to these categories. The Nadi readers identify the particular category of the mode on the thumb and the corresponding set of palm leaves are taken out. The time duration to pick up one's leaf depends upon the identification of the thumb impression. Some impressions are identified easily and the corresponding leaves are found soon.

Leaves are there not only for Indians but also for foreigners belonging to other religions and creeds. It is all part of one's destiny to get the leaf identified and the predictions made known to the person concerned.
