Naadi Shastra

Naadi shastra
is a peculiar science or subject which interests us. It is said that a particular rishi (saint) agasthya has written a book on a subject like horoscope. This book is called agsthya naadi sastram ( means, the Nadi science by Agasthya, Kausika, Vyasa, Bohar, Bhrigu, Vasishtha and Valmiki).
Nadi generally means nerve.Naadi Shastra also means energy-channel treatises which are shrouded in the mists of time. These might have been written 1000s of years ago( 4000 years back) and was written on palm leaves by sapta rishis (the seven sages , agasthya, . Further this subject on palm leaves was protected by families generations after generations. In other words the nadi sastra is handed over from father to his son, over hundreds of generations. What is there speciality in this book? It is very interesting.
The preservation of the Naadi palm leaves and the translation from Sanskrit into the Tamil language was undertaken on a large scale during the regime of the Tanjore kings (9th-13th Century AD). When the leaves started disintegrating with age, the Tanjore rulers appointed scholars to rewrite them on fresh palm leaves. Some of these Naadi Granthas were also translated into other South Indian language like Telugu. The Maratha king Sarabhoji and the Chola kings patronized these translations.So, now this shastra is available in only sanskrit, tamil, telugu,maratha languages. But tamil and telugu languages are popular.
They can tell your future by looking into the book about you. They say, about every body who is living now will be in the book. They will ask some questions like date of birth, fathers name or thumb impressions and they locate your details in the book. That book tells that such and such person takes birth in this year, his appearance would be like this (short, tall, red color , black hair). Further , what events take place in his life would be described , including his life span. More interesting thing is, his past life details would also be written in that. So, people will be in queue to know their details. Many rich persons would be interested to know about them and their sons/daughters future. This is another type of future reading and this science is closely protected by some families in Chidambaram,South India.
I heard from many people that the predictions are accurate to a great extent . My friend went and consulted the nadi sastra people when they visited New Delhi. His father was anxious to know about his future. My friend told me that they told about his past life , that he lived in the state of kerala, he committed some atrocities, or injustice to his girl friend and he has to pay the penalty for that for the same woman who would come as his wife in this life. They told what her name would resemble and how she looks like. The nadi saastra experts also predicted his rich future. They give very minutest details. This book is beilieved very much by the people and respected also. Only one constraint for knowing the future is , it is a bit costly for poor people. It may cost about $500 to $1000 per person depending on his requirement of details.
