An Amazing Encounter With Destiny... part 2
Part 2 of this article by R. Ramakrishnan continues his remarkable experiences with the Naadi Shastra readers of India
It was about an hour before I was called into a room. The reader was there waiting for me with a disarming smile. Although I had heard from numerous people about the whole process of Naadi reading, going through it oneself, was an altogether different experience and a little awesome and humbling to begin with. Here was a guy smiling away, who could read all about me -- my past, my future, not just in this incarnation but the earlier and following incarnations as well. There were three stacks of palm leaves, each stack with about 30 leaves sandwiched between two thin slabs of rosewood and all bound together with a soiled twine that indicated that the bundles had been in constant use.
Before we began, I was told to answer questions that the reader would ask only in terms of a 'yes' or a 'no' and not to divulge any other detail. The reader opened the first stack and started reading out aloud from the first palm leaf. The contents were in the Tamil language but in a dialect that should have been current aeons ago, for I could not follow a word, even though I speak Tamil at home and am fairly adept at this language. Whenever the reader felt some piece of information to be relevant enough to pose a question, he would interrupt his reading and interpret the information in the current style of Tamil. If my answer was in the affirmative, he would continue with the leaf and on the first negative answer, he would put the leaf away and take up the next in the stack. Here is a set of questions and answers that would give a clear idea of how we progressed with the exercise.
Naadi Reader: Are you the first born to your parents?
(Reader puts the leaf away and takes the next one)
Naadi Reader: Do you have two brothers?
Naadi Reader: Are your parents alive?
Naadi Reader: Are you the last born to your parents?
Naadi Reader: Do you profess the Muslim faith?
This process went on until he came to a leaf in the fourth stack where all questions (about 12 in all) received an affirmative answer from me. The reader then announced that this would most likely be my palm leaf and that he would now go to the details of names to confirm this. (We had not discussed anything about names of family members so far).
Naadi Reader: Your father's name and your name would each consist of two parts, and the first part in both would begin with 'Ra'.
Ram: Yes (My father's name is Ramachandran while mine is Ramakrishnan)
Naadi Reader: The second part of your father's name would be related to the Moon (Chandra in the Sanskrit language, which is considered to be the progenitor of all Indian languages, refers to the Moon)
Naadi Reader: The second part of your name would be the name of the Butter-eater (those familiar with Indian philosophy would recollect the story of Krishna and his love for butter in his younger days).
Naadi Reader: The name of your mother would be that of the deity at the temple in the city of Madurai
(The presiding deity at the temple in the city of Madurai is called Meenakshi, and my mother was named after this deity).
Naadi Reader: Your wife's name is Uma.
(That was just amazing. Here was a palm leaf written more than a thousand years ago mentioning the name of my wife directly and not camouflaged like those of my parents!)
