~ Personal experience ~

Self-destiny is a topic of great debate involving our own perceptions of our own lives and the possibilities that our perceptions provide for us to understand what life is really about and what its purpose is.

Of course there are many “branches” and forms of interpretation, whether it is astrology itself, going to a fortune teller for a tarot reading, or going to a fortune teller to give us a report on what they see in connection with our life path. There are indeed many ways to find out the favour of destiny and it is up to us what form of “advice” or “insight” we choose, if we are curious, for our further development and understanding of ourselves and the whole at the same time.

I, after a long period of time during which I have been in spiritual connection with my spirit guides, have decided to have my own destiny read completely independently to compare what I have been told by the masters with what I have had as visions of my own life, i.e. my own goals and dreams with an independent reading of my life story from my palm leaf writing, which has been passed down not hundreds but many thousands of years for our own knowledge and life advancement.

Palm leaf reading takes place in India in palm leaf libraries where approximately 80,000 basic life lines or stories are stored. At least that’s what I would call it. It’s as if we take on a certain setting in our lives, a certain character with certain characteristics, although we each experience our own unique story. Well, I decided then that I wanted to organize all of this information that I had received myself and also from others, with my own dreams, along with an independent interpretation of my life from the palm leaves, to create an overall picture of my own life and my subsequent direction that would lead to the completion of all of my life’s missions and also make me happy. And so it happened.

During the month of February, I sent in an impression of my right thumb (women send in an impression of their left thumb) as a specific characteristic of our own lives, which the Nadi in India used to find bundles of palm leaves that were in alignment with that very thumbprint and its specific characteristics. The search itself usually takes about 1-3 months, that is, if the person actually has the palm leaf itself (but it is said that anyone who desires to read a palm leaf is usually ready for it, otherwise they would not desire it – that is, not really with their whole being). They found my imprint after about 44 days, after which it was enough to confirm the date of the reading, and I waited with eagerness to see if I would actually find my scroll, and to confirm, quite independently, whether it was just a psychological paradox or whether it was reality (there are many positive as well as negative reviews, so one must always be independent and find out through one’s own experience what the truth is).

~ The first reading ~ General Khandam ~

As soon as we made the connection (the reading was done online via Skype), the Indian Nadi had two volumes of palm leaves ready, which according to their information were created 3,000 years ago and rewritten into new palm leaves 300 years ago (palm leaves are rewritten periodically to preserve individual life histories – the leaves are not immortal, of course). The whole process was very strong in the energetic interconnectedness of everything… everything really, as the energy matrix in such a life event is really properly stimulated if we are well attuned! 🙂

Now it was necessary to find the right palm leaf with my actual data, as it is important to find an exact match, after all each one of those leaves is meant for someone “different” at a different “time” a different “storyline” a different “space-time” whatever you can think about… (I like English) 😉 However, even though it was a really calm atmosphere and I had a really nice feeling about Nadi, I was still skeptical about whether I could actually find a sheet that had everything written on it that wasn’t just generic.

The surprise wasn’t long in coming, after about 30 sheets and very brief general questions in the form of yes/no answers, we arrived at a sheet where my answers to everything were just YES – it was my sheet, they even said my mother’s name, my father’s name and even my own (of course, since it’s my scroll, right?) without having any substantial information from me (other than really general information from which one can’t piece anything together anyway). In short, the likelihood of all this is effectively nil, as they can’t even get this information online – the fingerprint is assigned under a reference number, so the Hope reader doesn’t even know your personal name.

~ Such a relief! The reading of my life story begins! ~

The reading takes the form of an interpretation of the palm leaf inscription, where Nádí reads your palm leaf in Old Tamil and there is an English translator who tells you in English (or you have a Czech translator who translates from English to Czech – this is part of the palm leaf reading services provided, see web links below). The interpretation itself is very closely connected with the spiritual direction of India – Hinduism (deities, concepts) and the special direction of Nadi astrology. There is a lot of data focusing on the positions of the planets, but I was not very interested in that. What I was really interested in and incredibly fulfilling was the main interpretation of my own life. I wasn’t interested in what seasons I was going to experience, but what I was going to do in my life, what my true potential was and what I could achieve. And it was all really written there, and not only that, it was in line with what I had been told and what I had inwardly longed for for a long time – no random general information, but real facts!


Much of the interpretation of my palm leaf was focused on spirituality – not exactly the norm. This is due to the fact that I have already made many efforts in this direction, and apparently also set out to do so when I entered this life. I knew long ago that my life’s focus would indeed be spirituality and the exploration of reality and the true nature of myself. And despite the fact that Nadi knew nothing about me, everything pointed to the fact that I was going in the right direction and even confirmed everything I had been told by my spiritual masters. So… it is indeed true that we are all given a certain “destiny” that we may or may not follow if we are able to truly realize this destiny. Then it is up to each of us to decide whether or not we are in alignment with this “destiny”.


Why am I writing this article? … That is indeed a good question! Maybe I want to give you hope, maybe I want to inspire you, maybe I’m just writing my own “diary” of what I myself have experienced in my life… But what is important, palm leaves are real and by reading my palm leaf I have confirmed that I am walking in the right direction and that what I do in my life has real meaning for me, and for society.

Preparing: Reading No. 2 – article in preparation – Gnanna Khandam + individual life chapters

About 3,000 years ago there were many great sages (the exact number is unclear: some speak of only 7, some say 18, and some sources refer to dozens), the Maharishis of India, who were so pure of heart and mind and had attained such a high level of consciousness that they could see through time and space. They had the ability to see the future lives of millions of people and eternalized these visions on dried Palm Leaves – one for each person’s life they foresaw … and among them possibly your very own.

~ The Maharishis’ Prophecies ~

The origins of the Nadi Shastra (or Nadi Astrology) are shrouded in the mists of time. Nowadays, no one knows for sure when it came into being or who first looked at the stars and into the divine realms to gain insight into what the future might hold for the people of this Earth. What we do know is that for at least 3,000 years the sages of India, the Rishis, have dedicated their lives to the seeking of knowledge, to gain insight into the past, the present and the future.

Over the centuries, many great Rishis have helped people find their destinies by providing divine insights and guidance, but seven of them are said to be the greatest masters among them all. They are known as the 7 Maharishis, the 7 Great Saints, who used their divine powers to look into the future and predict the lives and fates of millions of people living throughout the ages. Their knowledge will, when the time is right, provide council and guidance to those in need, presented in the form of the Maharishis’ Palm Leaf Prophecies.

~ The Indian Palm Leaves ~

Nadi, in the ancient language of Tamil, means “in search of”. Because an individual goes in search of the predictions made for them, to find purpose and direction, the entire system of the Maharishis’ insights and predictions eventually came to be called by this name, Nadi Astrology.

08ytdiscoversarasva_830719g_0Three thousand years ago, personal information about you was dictated by the Maharishis to their disciples and handwritten on special Palm Leaves, also called Nadis. These Palm Leaves were preserved for all this time, for you to access their contents when you need it most. Your Palm Leaf was written specifically for you, to provide you with guidance during the most important times of your life, by allowing you to prepare for future life changing events. If you are approaching this crossroad in your life, then your Palm Leaf begins to draw you upon the search for its contents.


~What differentiates Nadi Astrology from Western Astrology? ~

The main difference between Nadi Astrology and Western Astrology is that while Western Astrology is very vague and general, applying to many people at once, the Nadi Palm Leaves only ever apply to one specific person and their life. Not every person has a Nadi Palm Leaf. The Maharishis’ Prophecies are widely believed to have been received from the Lord Shiva himself – and only those chosen to know about the occurrences in their lives before they happen will ever find their personal Palm Leaf. However, if you are looking for your Nadi Palm Leaf right now, it is most likely that you are among these chosen – as it is also said that only a person who has been destined to know his fate will approach the Nadi reader at a “predestined age” and at a “predestined time”.

~ What Palm Leaves Hold ~

The Maharishis’ Palm Leaves were all dictated and written down by hand several thousand years ago in an ancient form of the Indian language Tamil. This language can hardly be compared to our own as its symbols hold much more meaning than our English words do. To correctly interpret what was written, it is therefore crucial to find an experienced reader who is able to understand the deeper meanings and implications prophesized in your Palm Leaf.

~ The Nadi Libraries of India ~

The primary center for Nadi Shastra is in Vaitheeswarankoil, near Chidambaram, in the state of Tamil Nadu, South India. Up until the 1930s, Nadi remained little more than an ancient legacy, hardly used or even comprehended by the majority of Hindu Astrologers. The scrolls written by the Rishis not only contained the Maharishis’ Palm Leaf Prophecies, but many scrolls with precious information on the ancient ways of healing and on spirituality. When the British occupied India, they rediscovered these lost treasures, and when they finally left, they took many of these scrolls with them, thus introducing Ayurveda, Yoga and many other practices well known today to the modern world. The scrolls, however, which were perceived as “occult sciences” were left behind, among them the Maharishis’ Palm Leaf Prophecies.

Nowadays, the Maharishis’ Palm Leaves are stored in several libraries throughout Tamil Nadu and can be accessed only by entitled keepers of this ancient knowledge.

~ Reading the Palm Leaves ~

There are only very few Nadi Astrology readers available who can correctly interpret the inscriptions on the Maharishis’ Palm Leaves as it takes a life of study and practice to learn to understand the poetic ancient language in which they are written. Some of the Nadi Shastra Palm Leaves are even written in the form of conversations between the Indian Gods Lord Shiva and Lord Parvathi, expressing concern for and sending divine blessings to their devotees.

Every Palm Leaf’s prophecy holds detailed personal information about the person it was written for, such as their name, their parents’ names, their date and time of birth. Furthermore, a Palm Leaf also contains information about their spouses, their children and their career choices, making sure that the Palm Leaf is a perfect match and indeed for the person looking for a reading.

In addition to this information, the Palm Leaves hold the actual prophecy – the accounts of a person’s possible life path and karma, that may provide them with guidance and council for their future lives. This information is always written from the perspective of the moment the person receives their Palm Leaf Reading. It starts with the present and contains insights into the entire remaining life of the Palm Leaf’s recipient. These insights are organized into Kandams – “chapters” in a person’s life – such as their family life, marriage, career, health, their karma and many more.

Information about palm leaves has been taken from the English source:
