The Great Sages of India (Ancient Vedic Scientist) achieved the highest of consciousness through meditative practise and other esoteric techniques. This transcendental knowledge allowed them to see the life stories, both past and future, of all souls or beings who were living and were yet to live. Being able to see into the future, they were aware of the difficulties that would prevail in modern times. Out of their deep compassion for humanity, these transcendent beings wanted to provide an opportunity for people to discover and transform their destinies and evolve their souls. That is why Nadi Law states that only when the seeker is ready, they will seek and find their Nadi. When required, a new patron would commission scribes to copy the precious manuscripts onto freshly treated palm - leaves. In the Chola Dynasty in South India between 10th and 13th Century AD The Maharajah Serfoji II of Tanjore, a true patron of art and sciences, stored these palm leaves in his palace library. He had them translated into ancient Tamil. So, it was in this way that uncounted generations of scribes preserved much of India's vast intellectual and spiritual legacy.
A Brief Time in British Possession
Many of the Nadi leaves were destroyed during the invasion of Mughals and the British. The Moghuls had some burnt while the British took many of them and sold them to a few families in India.
Nadi Leaves Back in Service
Today, the nerve center for Nadi Astrology is the famous Vaitheeswaran Temple located near Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu, South India. Here, Lord Shiva is said to have assumed the role of a vaidhya (doctor) to solve the miseries of his devotees. Only select Nadi Readers, who have learned the secret art from their forefathers, continue to interpret the Nadi leaves for seekers who wish to transform their destiny.
