The myths... the facts... straight from the master of
Naadi Astrology, Shri R. Murugeshan
Can you prove the authenticity of predictions through palm leaves? Briefly, can you also
stress upon the origin of this science, if it is one.
The origin of the palm leaves can be traced back to approximately 2000 years ago. It is believed
that this ancient
prediction methodology was written on palm leaves by 18 Maharishis (including Saptarishis) and was
on from generation to generation.
Naadi Shastra can give you accurate predictions but it all depends on the person who interprets
them. But with the
influx of fake astrologers today, it is extremely hard to find a genuine astrologer, especially one
who predicts Nadi.
Shri R. Murugeshan has acquired and inherited his Naadi Reading Skills from his family who has been
this supernatural art for generations in Tanjore, Tamil Nadu. Shri Murugeshan has been practising
for the past 25 years and has been instrumental in changing lives of many people from all walks of
life. As regards
to the authenticity, our clients would vouch for it, for many of them have immensely benefited
Could you share with us your background?
Naadi reading/prediction is a hereditary profession for us. We hail from Vaitheeswaran Koil, in
South Tamil Nadu, India.
We got trained from our elders. The original Naadi leaves where written in poetic language and the
script was also
different. We do possess a certain amount of the sacred palm leaves. What's unique about these
leaves is that they are
not only for Indians but also for foreigners and people belonging to other religions. Whoever is
destined to look into
these leaves will come to us on his/her own accord. The very word 'Naadi' means in Tamil (in search
of) to come on
Does that mean you don't possess the leaves of those who are not destined to come
Yes. They may not even know that such a type of astrology exists. Even the very age when the person
to come to us is marked on the leaves. Whoever is destined to come will come. Faith is the root of
Do you predict / tell your customers much more than what's written on the palm leaves?
We are genuine 'Naadi Readers' and we only read what's written on the leaves. We give the
explanation without manipulating a thing. That’s the reason why some of our clients get upset when
we unfold certain unpleasant facts
about them. But we can’t help it. However, we also suggest remedial measures to overcome problems
faced by them.
These measures are also written on the palm leaves..
Do people perceive that you and your team manage to get a lot of information from your
clients discreetly before you start your process?
No. We don't need to resort to such activities as it's against our principles. While we start
reading from palm
leaves, sometimes the person's name is written in full. And in some cases, the names are only
through details like the number of letters in the name, clues of corresponding deity/God, etc. In
such cases, we ask questions to find out the right leaf. You can also verify your horoscope with the
description of the horoscope given
in the leaf. Without truth and integrity, we could not have survived for so many generations.
You often suggest remedial measures to overcome problems. Are they purposefully done
to boost your income prospects?
Ours is a holy profession. We don't give any suggestions for our personal benefits. We only read the
measures given in the particular chapter. Generally, these measures are rituals like visiting
feeding the poor, etc. and there is no compulsion to do them.
Do these remedial measures really work?
Yes. I have seen many people benefitting from this. Let me give you an example. We had a Non-Hindu
couldn’t child till the age of 48. While predicting her future through palm leaves, it was said that
she should follow
certain remedy to overcome the problem. Accordingly she did all that religiously, as per Hindu
rituals. And to
everyone's surprise, she delivered a baby girl at the age of 49. This is just one of the many
success stories. There
are many such clients who have benefitted from our remedial measures.
Do you divulge details of your clients to others while reading?
Never. We always maintain integrity with every client we get in touch with. Under no circumstances
reveal one’s problems to others. All our readers are trained to do that with credibility.
Does one need to wait for long hours to get his/her Naadi reading?
The time duration depends on the identification of the thumb impression. Some impressions are
and the corresponding leaves are found soon. At times, it does take more time to match the palm
Is it possible to get accurate Naadi predictions without being physically present before
Yes. It is possible. We have a special service for those who don't make it personally. All you need
to do is fill-in a
form divulging certain details along with their thumb prints and send it to us. We, then study the
match the leaves and record the predictions in an audio cassette in English or Tamil or Hindi. Many
of our clients
in Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, Jaipur, Dubai, London, USA, Germany, New Zealand have benefitted from
What's the difference between your classification and legal classification?
For legal purposes, the whole thumb is studied minutely, whereas we concentrate only the center part
thumb and the sub-divisions therein.
