My Naadi astrology experience- a truly bewitching one!

It was 6 years ago. I was living with my college friends in the city’s suburb. We never got the real seriousness until it’s the final exam time of the semester. It was such a joyful evening when my friend dropped by my place. Soon my roommates also joined for a chat with him. As we were discussing, rambling and laughing about college trivia, he suddenly started a new topic that jumped off the track of our conversation- it was about ghosts and spirits.


Though I never believed in any of these stories, I did not ever miss a discussion on ghosts. These discussions invariably start with 2 or 3 people and end with a big crowd of 10-12 people. Spooky stories are always enchanting and definitely a crowd puller. Back to the story- my friend said that he had been long suspecting that his house was haunted by a spirit. He also cited some creepy unexplainable incidents like “black images”, “hollow space” “shadows without an object” moving hither and thither at his place. This was happening for long. Only later did he learn from his landlord that the house had been vacant for years, before he moved in. It had been occupied by a family which moved out after a 9-year old girl in the household committed suicide. Though his narrative made us hold breath at irregular periods and left us open-mouthed, to me, it was just a nicely concocted story.

Then he added that the spirit of a killed or a prematurely dead human would lament, cry aloud and beg, on seeing its body being cremated in grave yard, longing to get back to its body. It sounded so irrational to my senses and I argued back. My roommates also started making fun of him for all that he had been saying hitherto. It definitely kindled his wrath and being unable to prove anything that he said, he quickly stood up, and snarled, “You guys may laugh at me now. But you will understand very soon!” He added, “I’m sure you guys won’t believe if I said, you can even know what your previous births were, and where your next birth will be! Naadi astrology tells you that. Go, see it for yourself!” He quickly disappeared from the spot. Even after a long time after he left, his last sentence was haunting me during the darkest times of that night. Rest is the main story.


The word ‘Naadi’ kept resonating in my mind even the following day. I’ve heard about such an astrological practice many times during the previous years. But I was never so interested in seeking it, and even at times when I thought of giving it a try, I was indifferent or I had more important things to do. However, this time, this overwhelming force made me become all the more keen on seeking it. But only for one simple reason- to prove to my friend that all that was just a humbug. The next moment, I was standing in front of this place where Naadi astrology is sought. I couldn’t help myself.

It was just a big house, with a board ("Agathiya Naadi center") hanging in the front. I entered the building with some reluctance as I’ve never been to an astrology place before in life. The place was buzzing with activities and packed with people who I could easily identify to be of different cultures, and some were from different countries too. I noticed a picture of a king who I later understood to be the Maratha king Serfoji, who had preserved the naadi palm leaves. The wall opposite to it was almost left with no space as a lot of paper cuttings of magazine articles had been stuck. It was obvious that each of the paper cuttings was from magazines in different languages such as German, Japanese, Chinese, English, Tamil, etc. I was attracted to an article titled, “Is there a next birth?”. As I was totally immersed into reading the article, I didn’t notice a hand coming towards my shoulder. “Tap!”

  9. Everyone said the narration is good, the way of expressing is natural ! But keeping them aside, one thing really attracted me. Those Two images in the midst of the post mesmerizes the readers and punches them into the storyline.

  15. "Then he added that the spirit of a killed or a prematurely dead human would lament, cry aloud and beg, on seeing its body being cremated in grave yard, longing to get back to its body."

    Even I have read the same in some books related to spirit, life after death etc.
    Do these people tell the reason of someone's sudden demise when he is young?
    I need to find out the reason.

  16. Hi Hemanth,

    That was pretty good I've read all your posts in this blog.It was really good.Personally I have known that there is an exact science that will tell everything about you depending on finger print and heart beat,but I feel instead of using this to make it a mythical astrology subject,that we could explore the real connection between all the items it would help us resolve many characteristic traits.

  17. hemanth, this is shatodryu here from calcutta,india. i went to a naadi centre in mumbai some years back.they were able to say my mother's name and a few more things right, but charged quite an amount for further proceedings. somehow i didnt give in. now after reading your blog, i'm getting drawn to it again. can you give me the address and the contact number of the naadi centre you went to? how is your life following their predictions? did they fix anything for you which was not right in your horoscope?i wonder if they entertain long-distance clients. my email id is shatodru@in.com and facebook id is shatodru river. i'd be grateful to you if you could help. i need this, badly. thanks hemanth.

  18. thanks, கனகராசு, J, Nandita, Sastry KVS! Glad you liked the blog.

    @Priya: There is a chapter that talks about death and the next birth. But I don't think you could find the leaf of a deceased person. http://hemanththiru.blogspot.ca/2010/09/naadi-astrology-and-siddhar-agathiyars.html

    @flyzone: I have some details about this place on "The Enlightened Niche"'s Facebook page. And also please note that they are not "astrologers" as such, but they just read out the palm leaf manuscripts to you (they are trained in reading the old Tamil Vatteluthu script).
