A wonder but bare truth

Can you believe that someone in Tamilnadu at Vaithiswarankoil (Nagapattinam District- 290 Kms. From Chennai) keeps the records of your past, present and future? Yes! It may be a wonder for you, but the truth is obvious. This is Naadi Astrology written by some enlightened mystic scholars of the ancient past for the betterment of their posterity. Yes ......... this is the patrimony that the mankind has derived from its predecessors. Envisaging the welfare of human kind and the forthcoming generations, they created the records of the individuals, by spending their whole lives in order to ease our lives at this modern age and among all crises. Perhaps, this was the effort extended by them to preserve “Dharma” during this Kaliyuga. However, they intended to help the humanity to be on the right track by spiritual wisdom. These enlightened sages are an esoteric group of ancient siddhas and are yet to be known by the world. Got pleased with their fervent prayer and dedicated devotion, Lord Shiva bestowed on them some exclusive powers. This is called the sixth sense extra sensory perception. With the help of this incredible clairvoyance which they derived from Lord Shiva, they created your records on palm leaves which is associated with your past, present and future. Their peerless knowledge is hereto being served to keep you all at zenith.

Nadi astrology- a bird's eye view Nadi readers

In the remote past, the saints used palm leaves to create valuable records for the growth and progress of the posterity and these naadi records are also the part and parcel of the abundant treasure of various subjects, such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Varma, Astronomy, Astrology etc. The palm leaves records that are kept here comprise your past, present and future. These naadi records are not available for the total population of the world and it is limited for the destined souls. These destined souls are involuntarily attracted to read the leaves by force of circumstances or under compulsion or intuition at right times as destined here from the center. The language inscribed on these palm leaves is in old poetic Tamil and it is understandable to very few who are well versed in this art of naadi reading.


A temple town called Vaithiswarankoil, located in Tamilnadu is the brain center of the Naadi tradition surrounded by so many temples of great significance. The entire village reverberates with this ancient heritage of wisdom. Lord Shiva guarantees authenticity of the predictions being expounded by these ancient palm leaves.

Legacy of marathas

Naadi Jodhidam (Jotish) was written originally in Sanskrit on palm leaves by the great Rishis of ancient India, like Bhrigu, Agasthiya, Kaushika, Vashishtha and others, and it is more popular in South India.
His highness Sri. Venkoji Maharaja, descendant of Sivaji Maharaja, established the Maratha rule in Tamilnadu in the year 1676, with Tanjore as their Head Quarters. The control was taken over by the Britishers in 1798 from the Marathas, when Robert Clive was the Governor of Madras Presidency.

Our family

Our ancestors originally lived in Varanasi of Uttar Pradesh. We belong to the Valluvar Caste who used to do Pujas to Lord Shiva wearing lingas on our bodies. Our gothra is said to be of Gyana Thambiran. The original palm leaves containing the Naadi Jodhida predictions are all available under the control of our family only. They run into lakhs and are kept preserved, and destroyed after the future to the destined is predicted, under our supervision.
Our ancestors might have migrated to Tamilnadu many centuries ago and must have attained proficiency in Tamil. Probably they were employed under the Marathas and might have been employed in the Tamil translation work of the Naadi Jodhida predictions from Sanskrit.

ATTENTION: this feature does not work on Internet Explorer 7 and 8.

The Britishers during their rule transferred to London Library, all Palm leaves relating to Sciences and Art. The manuscripts of Naadi Palm leaves were left behind by them in the Saraswathi Mahal Library, because they did not know its merits and importance. Since our ancestors knew the importance of these Palm leaf Naadi predictions, the original Naadi Astrological palm leaves were obtained from the Britishers on lease, during the time of our great grandfather, sometime between 1850 and 1875. It is said, he started giving the Naadi Jodhida predictions at Vaithiswarankoil from the later part of his life, probably around 1875.
It is said that our great grandfather Arul Thiru Samba Sivam gave predictions from Kousika Naadi and my grandfather Arul Thiru Swami Sachidhanandam (1900-1960) from Agasthiya Naadi. Since the palm leaves of Kousika and Agasthiya Naadi became scarce, our father Arul Thiru. Arumugam (1929-1989) started the predictions from the Maha Siva Sukshma Naadi, during his lifetime, following the footsteps of the great Arul Siva Arumugunar.
We, his sons, continue the Sukshma Naadi predictions , both at Vaithiswarankoil and at Gurgaon. Our father knew Astrology and wrote some books on Astrology like, ‘How to judge and select bride and bridegroom?’ , but we are however trained intensely from our early age, for nearly ten years to read and interpret the Naadi predictions only from the palm leaves.

Maha siva sukshma nadi

As explained already, we are giving predictions as per the Sukshma Naadi, since our father’s time i.e. roughly for the past fifty years. The predictions start with a dialogue between Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, who requests Lord Shiva to tell the predictions of her son/daughter, who has come forward to know his/her future. Lord Shiva then gives the predictions.
The Maha Siva Sukshma Naadi is more exhaustive and accurate in predicting events as compared to Kousika and Agasthiya Naadi’s followed by our family earlier or other Naadi Jodhidam followed by others in the south. That is the reason why, the charge for this Sukshma Naadi is somewhat higher. But when we compare the immense what we derive from Naadi, the charge is very cheap.
As in Astrology, there are twelve Kandams, dealing with the twelve Bhavas or houses. There are also special Kandams, dealing with Shanthi Pariharam, Deeksha Kandam, Vaidya Kandam, Dasabhukthi Kandams, brief description of subjects dealt in each Kandam are all given in the Appendix, which may please the referred one. In the succeeding chapters, we have also explained in details some of the important Kandams. However, the first Kandam is compulsory. It is considered to be the index for all the other Kandams. The consultation of all the Kandams and special Kandams are optional. But other Kandams can not be independently consulted, without reading the first chapter.

Another important feature of the Sukshma Naadi is, that the prediction itself, tells when the customer will come to us for consultation. Usually it is indicated that the person seeking to know his future would come when Saturn and Jupiter are situated in particular Rasis. Presently, the Naadi leaves indicate Guru (Planet Jupiter) is in Cancer (Leo) and Sani (Planet Saturn) is in Taurus (Gemini) Rasi. When Jupiter and Saturn transit to next Rasi, the present palm leaves are going to be left in the Holy river Cauvery as directed by our own Naadi, i.e. Santhana Nool.
It is pertinent to remember in this connection that unlike Natal Astrology , the predictions are told in the Sukshma Naadi Astrology, only from the date the native gets the leaves to the end of his/her life and past predictions are not given . The past predictions given are in respect of certain facts about the family of the person, which are considered as Sakshimore witness to confirm that the leaves pertaining to the person coming to know about his future. Because of this fact only we are not giving any advertisement about our centres at Vaithiswarankoil or Gurgaon. Whoever has come of his own accord , having heard about us, through their friends or relatives.

This website advertisement and booklet is however made for the first time, only to take advantage of the latest advancements made in the computer and in Information Technology and to record for the sake of posterity, the history, background, and nature of predictions, our family is giving for the last 150 years or more. We also want to record in writing, what we have heard so far, by hear say or Karma Parampara, from our ancestors.
Another noteworthy point with regards to the Sukshma Naadi is, that even in cases where the leaves are traced, the predictions were not told immediately. There were two such cases in the history Gurgaon centre itself. In one case, a Mumbai based person’s future was sought. He was bedridden with paralytic attack. His relatives were told to come again after 6 months. But within 6 months, the person concerned died. In another case, the person was asked to perform certain remedial measures, which were also suggested and come after doing those Pariharams only to know about his future.
One other prediction given in the case of some political leaders had a hearing on the General Elections. Just before the parliamentary election held in 1998, prediction given in individual cases referred to the general elections, likely to take place when Saturn transited to a particular Nakshatra which happened around in February, March 1998.When people were discussing when the elections will be held, whether in March 1998 or November 1998, Naadi predicted it in March 1998 which proved correct.

This too came in the general Kandam prediction of some individuals. This shows how much foresight our rishis had, over events likely to take place thousands of years later.
Interestingly , the Sukshma Naadi contains predictions for all persons belonging to various religions, communities and regions of India and abroad. The persons who had come to the Gurgaon centre consist of Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims and Christians from all corners of India. The Naadi coming from Tamilnadu tells the names of customers from north and other religious person’s name, which are not generally understood in south. The Pariharams suggested to customers of other religious faiths, include the remedies to be performed as per there customs as well as to the Hindu gods and Navagraha planets. Similarly remedial measures suggested to the Hindus include pilgrimage to Velankanni Mary Temple, a Christian Church and the Nagore Dargah, a Muslim holy place within Tamilnadu and Gurudwaras. Thus religious tolerance and fraternity is also preached.
It would be interesting to note that the Naadi predictions could cover such events like natural calamities. A customer from Japan Mr. Minamida Mitsuyazu (a photo of the customer with Naadi astrologer is given in the appendix) consulted his Naadi sometime in 1995. There was a prediction that his house and area would be affected by an Earthquake. He confirmed to us after he returned to his country about the actual happening of the Earthquake. Even though his house was affected, he was unhurt.

Reading and interpretation of the sukshma nadi

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 Gurgaon 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 realised, 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.

Procedure for selection and reading of the sukshma nadi

When a Jathaka or the customer wants to consult the Naadi, he has to contact the centre over phone or in person or by Post and get a date confirmed. One day before the appointed date he has to reconfirm his arrival or position or the date will be cancelled at present the waiting list is extending upto 3 months and so if the customer is unable to come for any reason, the date can be provided to the other waiting customers. At the time of getting the date, and upto the time of reading the Naadi, the name of the person consulted need not be given as his name will be told in the prediction itself, he can give some other friends or relatives name or some code names, which are to be remembered while coming for consultation.
On the appointment date, the right hand or left hand thumb impression, if the person is a male or female respectively is to be given at the centre. With the help this thumb impression, the bundles containing the particulars set or thumb impression to which, his impression belongs will be traced.
In each bundle, there may be predictions relating to hundreds of persons. Sometimes a particular palm leaf may contain predictions relating to more than one customer. In some very rare cases, one leaf or a set of leaves may contain exclusively, predictions relating to one person only. In such cases of single person predictions, we generally give the original palm leaves to the concerned Jathaka.

We however record the original Tamil predictions as given in the Naadi, in a note book and give to the customers. Then it will be transferred to other language as they wish. During the last 2 years, there were only 2 cases of single leaf predictions, one in the case of a senior IAS Officer in 1998 and the other recently in May 2000 to a senior politician, the All India General Secretary of a major ruling party. The original palm leaves were given to them. Similarly, the Japanese customer who consulted us in 1995 (vide page 7) got a separate leaf (see also the photo in the appendix holding the leaf in his hands).
The selection of the particular leaf relating to a person is a time consuming process and it may take 2 to 3 hours sometime and at other times, the customers would be lucky to get it within a reference to 5 or 6 leaves. Every leaf pertaining to a person would contain facts about that person viz. , his and his wife’s name, his parents names, number of brothers and sisters, the order of his birth in the family, whether he is the son of the first or second wife, in case if his father had got married twice and such other definite facts. These are called Sakshis or witnesses. The customer should confirm or deny the facts, when it is being read from the leaves. But he should not tell the fact well in advance. If the particulars given in a particular do not agree entirely, the next leaf is taken and the process continues till the correct leaf containing the factual predictions completely, matches with his family particulars.

General kanda predictions

As already explained, the Sukshma Naadi predictions are available for all the twelve Bhavas or houses. The chapter 1 containing the general Kandam is compulsorily to be referred to, as it is considered as the index and contains exhaustive and precise predictions, commencing from the time the customer’s leaf is traced to the end of his life. This general Kanda only identifies the correct leaf pertaining to the customer as already explained in the VIth chapter. Then the planetary positions of the 9 planets are explained, from which the details of the horoscope is cast and recorded in the Notebook, where the original predictions are recorded. This horoscope tallies exactly with the natal horoscope available with the customer. However, the horoscope coming in the Naadi does not indicate the Lagna position and balance of Dasa and Bhukthi period available. In rare cases the lagna is also indicated. For further details, please refer to Dasa Bhukthi chapter.
Then the present Gochara position of planets are discussed and if there are any serious doshams or the sins committed in previous birth is serious, preference to Shanthi and Deeksha, Kandam are suggested. This will be experienced in the next chapter.

Thereafter the predictions are given, from the time leaf is traced to the end of his life covering all the twelve bhava affect i.e. education , profession, marriage, health, children, profit and loss in profession, service, death etc. These predictions are split up into many periods of his age (in Natal Astrology it is Dasa Bhukthi wise) usually to three years time at a stretch are events that will take place would be examined in details. e process continues till the correct leaf containing the factual predictions completely, matches with his family particulars.

Remedial Measure or Pariharas

(chapter 13 and 14) In the Naadi Astrology, due importance is given to performing Pariharas or remedial measures to atone our Doshas or sins. The Pariharas are generally suggested in the following 3 types of cases.
(i) To atone for sins committed by us in our past births. According to the Karma theory of the Hindus, the good or bad deeds done by us in the past birth are continuing in the present life also, because of which we experience good or bad effect in the present birth. If the sins committed by us are serious ones, we have to sincerely regret for the same and do certain Pariharas. Unless we do this, we have to suffer extreme hardship.

It is true that one cannot escape from the bad effects and has to undergo the sufferings for our bad deed in past or present life. But by doing the Pariharas, we can gain some relief from our problems, as we protect ourselves from the hot sun and torrential by using an umbrella.
The Naadi sincerely believes and assures us, performance of suggested Pariharas definitely protects one from the aftermath of sins of past life or the temporary bad effects caused by Gochara effects of planetary movements, in the present life.
It is a question of fate vs. freewill. Our ancestors believed, that one can overcome fate by freewill or Buddhi by devotion to god, cultivating virtues, removing on and doing bad and good things. The sage Markandeya was destined to be died at the age of 18. But by his extreme devotion to God Shiva and Purity in his thoughts he escaped from death, because of the boon given by Lord Shiva, that he would ever remain 18 years of age and so there is no question of his death.
The Pariharams are only the training grounds for us to cultivate our minds towards devotion to God, generating love, compassion good and to be good to oneself and others. The Sukshma Naadi prescribes such Pariharams, like pilgrimages to Holy temples of God and Navagraha Nayakas, offer Puja and Abhishekam, offer food and clothes to poor and handicapped persons, offer food to birds like crows, plant certain types of shade giving trees in public places and roads to enable passers by to get shade, thus protecting them from the hot sun etc.

They should never do it in a ritualistic or methodic way and again continue life, committing the same mistakes because of which they are suffering now.
(ii) The second reason for our suffering as identified by the Sukshma Naadi, is caused by the Gochara effects or the temporary transits of planets like 7 and half years Saturn period, other planets transiting bad houses etc. The Pariharams suggested in these are also similar to the ones suggested for the first cause as explained in the previous para.
(iii) The third reason for our sufferings identified by the Sukshma Naadi is by enemies and jealous persons, evil eyes, envy or conspiracy of others viz. pilli, sunyam etc. To protect one from the deliberative doings of others envious of us, the Naadi prescribes doing certain Manthra Japas for a specified period (one Mandalam, two Mandalam etc. Mandalam means 48 days) to the copper plate dedicated to Vedic Gods like Shiva, Vishnu, Karthikeya, Lakshmi, Durga etc. and wearing such Talismans duly chanted to Gods, in the body or doing Pujas in the house. The Naadi will describe what Manthra Japa is to be done in favour of which deity and what to do with Manthra Japa chanted copper plate.
It is significant to note in this connection, that the Sukshma Naadi never suggests, any retaliatory evil Manthra Japas to well known Vedic Gods and wearing or doing Pujas to the Manthra chanted copper plates or Talisman only to protect oneself from the evil effects of the evil doers.

Predictions on the other chapters II to XII

These predictions can be had at the option of the customer on payment of the prescribed charges to know more detailed information about the predictions given in Chapter I, for example to know more information on education Chapter II can be referred, for marriage, details of wife/husband i.e. wherefrom they will come, their place of living, name, some horoscope identifications, time of marriage etc. Chapter VII maybe referred. Chapter X gives detailed information about profession like promotion, business prospects, nature of business which is profitable etc. Similarly other chapters deal more elaborately on the subjects indicated against them vide.
We had said earlier, the general predictions on first chapter, is exhaustive and compulsory, while the reading of other Kandams are helpful to them, the following two typical cases noticed in the Gurgaon Centre are explained.
In one case, the customer who came for consultation, was a shipping Engineer with high Engineering qualifications, experience and contract, working in an international shipping company. Prediction given to him was that in partnership with his sons, he would enter into shipping business.

He has two sons, one son a Shipping Engineer in a different field and the other son was studying at Calcutta in Ship Engineering Course. The father decided to see the first son’s Naadi and it revealed that trading in oil related to shipping will be good for him, like oil Tanker shipping trade, the second son’s Naadi was also consulted and a big break through was achieved . His Naadi predicted, that he would be in a big shipping business magnate and do shipping business in partnership with his father and brother. It was also predicted; that he would get married to a wealthy man’s daughter and go to a foreign country for further studies (in London) even though he was studying in Calcutta at the time of predictions. Thus by referring to the General Kandam of all the three, they could identify the person, who will be the chief in the fathers Naadi. To our doubt, the father clarified that will be their educational qualification, experience and contacts, capitol is not a big problem.
In another case, a customer in executive position in a reputed firm, had problems in his married life and lived separately. The general Kandam hinted the problem and the cause, which was due to sins committed in previous birth and chapters XII and XIV were consulted and Pariharams identified. The reference to Chapter VII marriage also advised Pariharams, there would be reconciliation and happiness with his wife.

Predictions on the other chapters II to XII

For varied reasons which he explained later, the customer felt that the reconciliation will not do them good or bring happiness. He insisted on seeing the 11th Kanda, remarriage , which was categorized that because of his sins committed in previous birth, the relationship with his wife will break and he will get remarried and be happy thereafter and the second wife will be very helpful to him. This prediction of the 11th Kanda only, satisfactorily clarified his doubt. He also got favourable predictions with regards to his efforts to get a prestigious international Post after one year. He has now attended an interview for the same.
