Naadi Shastra

Naadi Shastra, an ancient system of prediction provides indepth guidance and knowledge about your past and your future. Can you really find out who you were and how your life was in the past? You sure can! That’s what Naadi Shastra is well known for. This ancient astrological branch has amazed millions with its special powers and predictions. This specialized branch of Tamil Astrology is not practiced by many as it has been a well kept secret for years now. According to research, this system of prediction has been in use for more than 4000 years now. The treatises were first written in Sanskrit on Palm leaf scrolls and the interpretation was done by the Nadi Shastri and the message was communicated verbally. It is believed that the Naadi Shastras were first composed by the Sapta Rishis, Agasthya, Kausika, Vyasa, Bohar, Bhrigu, Vasishtha and Valmiki.

This is a unique form of astrology where a person can read about his destiny inscribed on palm leaves thousands of years ago. These palm leaves are preserved using peacock oil in Tamil Nadu and have still been kept in Vaitheeswarankoli, near Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu. These palm leaves which can predict you future can only be interpreted by a Naadi Expert.

These ancient Granthas are a set of highly organised manuscripts divided into sixteen chapters or kandams. These chapters provide you predictions and spiritual guidance about various important aspects of your life like marriage, love, career, finance etc. With time, some leaves have scattered or been lost and some have been distributed among various experts of Naadi Shastra. Predictions are made only after your leaf is found and interpreted.

Naadi Shastra, according to some are the conversations between Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati expressing concern for their devotees.

During the reign of the Kings of Tanjore in 9th-13th Century AD, translation of the Naadi palm leaves from Sanskrit to Tamil was done on a large scale. When these leaves started to disintegrate highly skilled scholars were appointed to rewrite them on fresh palm leaves.
