A keen student of the occult sciences, Srikrishna Das (b.1913) has devoted 35 years of his life to the study of palmistry. He has seen thousands of hands of persons from all walks of life in different countries. To verify the correctness of his readings about diagnosis of diseases, he visited hospitals to study the hands of patients. His researches also took him to England, U.K., Europe, America and Far East.
Mr. Das’s aim in writing this book is to serve the public through palmistry. He is also an author of repute having written five other books. He figures in the Directory of Indian Writers, 1983, published by the Sahitya Akademi, New Delhi, and in the 1986 edition of the Learned India and in the 1989 edition of Learned India (Directories of who’s who of persons of achievement & distinction).
Mr. Das retired as a Senior Executive of the State Bank of India.
Different modes of forecasting the future are in vogue from time immemorial. While astrology emplo5’s a mathematical basis for casting a chart and interpreting it on what it considers to be a causal connection between given planetary situations and events in human lives, palmistry approaches the subject of studying human nature and forecasting future in a different but more direct manner.
While some scientists in Western countries, based on their own investigations, have begun to endorse the truth of palmistry in India, no systematic attempts have been made. Instead, a certain section of the educated public, without any knowledge of palmistry, denigrates it as superstition.
Palmistry is the science of determining the character and mental tendencies and the likely events to happen in an individual’s life from an examination of the tines and marks in the palm. Amongst ancient Hindus, it had been raised to the dignity of a science. It is worth noting that Cheiro acknowledge that he owes his knowledge of palmistry to the Hindus.
Mr. S.K. Das, the author of this book, has dealt with die subject of palmistry as exhaustively as possible so that one who has no knowledge of the subject can learn it without the aid of a teacher. In the first chapter (introduction) the author has explained clearly the scientific rationale of palmistry. Types of the hand, the mounts, the fingers, the thumb, and the texture of the skin, the nails and the ridges have all received an exhaustive treatment while the lines on the palm and their interpretation have been skillfully dealt with. The chapters on “Profession” and “Medical Palmistry” merit the attention of our educationists. The book contains several illustrations so that palmistry as a whole receives an exhaustive treatment.
Mr. Das has brought to bear on the subject his long experience so that the book can be of real use to those who wish to learn palmistry.
It is hoped that ‘Everybody’s Guide to Palmistry’ will be welcomed by all those interested in palmistry so that the author is motivated to bring out more such books.
