There are various types of Naadi granthas, Chandra Kala Naadi, Dhruva Naadi, Bhrigu Naadi, Nandi Naadi, Saptarishi Naadi, Vidymadhaveeyam, Kakabhujandar Naadi, guru Naadi, Buddha Naadi, Surya Naadi, Kapila Naadi, vashistha Naadi, Shukra Naadi, Spatarishi Naadi and Pushya Naadi, Some of them are in different libraries or with traditional families in south India and North India.
These Naadi Systems have five different methods of giving readings. One set of granthas relates reading based on horoscopes with divisional reference points as with Dhruva Naadi Chandra kala Naadi. Another set of Naadi goes with the stellar division which has some basis in Vidya Madhavaveeyam. Yet another set of reading is based on signification of planets with or without relating to Dasha bhukti like Nandi Naadi and bhrigu Naadi. One more set is called Mantra Naadi which has some occult interference in reading through the palm leaves. Very rarely I have come across a Naadi reader having this mantra Naadi. However some Naadi Palm leaves and old scripts are available in the south Indian and North Indian libraries. Most of them are in Sanskrit Tamil Telugu and Kannada languages. The 5th one is Naadi reading based on thumb impression index and identifying the palm leaf having the whole life reading including the names of relatives. This has become famous across the world over two decades. Originally this was restricted in and around Chidambaram and some places in Tamil Nadu. Now we can find branched our readers across the word and in every city there are number of such Naadi centers.
There are number of articles on this type of Naadi, many giving their experiences hosted on the internet. There are arguments for and against the thumb impression Naadi system. Foreigners who visited Chidambaram have recorded their experiences and opinions. Many Indian scholars like Dr. By. Raman, Sri CC. Rajan Sri. Santanam, Sri. C.S.Patel and some scholars from Andhra and Karnataka have also experimented with this system and have documented their experiences.
There are recorded instances about the experience of the legend Dr. B. V. Raman who encountered certain Mantra Naadi exponent having the Guru Naadi palm leaves. He exhibited an empty palm leaf witnessed by Dr. Raman. With closed eyes certain mantras were recited and when eyes were opened the empty leaf had written messages in Kannada, a south Indian language. Again mantras were recited with closed eyes and they turned into another south Indian language Tamil. It is learnt that this Naadi reader explained niceties of this system of Naadi. Dr. Raman had also experience of another Naadi called Agastyar Naadi by which the exponent used the thumb impression of Dr. Raman and predicted certain events which came true. It is learnt Dr. Raman’s group has a copy of Dhruva Naadi.
Naadi in Sanskrit means, any tube or pipe, son of nada, vein, any tubular organ of the body, Nerve, pulse, box of a wheel, tubular stalk or any plant or any tubular organ, artery, deception, sort of bent grass, any hole or crevice, flute, strap of leather, any pipe or tube, juggling trick, thong.
Naadika means osmium sanctum, any tubular organ, hollow stalk, and another pot-herb, windpipe or throat, trachea.
In Muhurtha, Naadika is half of Muhurtha that is 24 minutes. In Naadi astrology possibly the meaning of pulse, or the box of a wheel, that is out of 12 zodiac sign wheel, a sign is considered as a box, or the juggling trick, or a string, or cord (that is thong), or 24 minutes of Muhurtha, might have been attributed to word Naadi, It also means the subtle channels in the body. In Tamil the word Naadi gives many expressions such as search or search of existence search of past.
Recordings of human life predictions by Rishis Bhrigy Angirasa, Atri, Viswamitra, Kashyapa, Vashishtha, and Agastya are known as Naadi. How they recorded the destinies of human race including those yet to born is a million dollar question yet to be answered. The personal experience of Dr. Raman about the changing contents in a palm leaf is an astonishing phenomenon for which no answer can be found within the frame work of science which has limited resources. Writings of rishis are not only confined to Astrology but also include medical science Yoga, Metaphysical life and Occult Science. Whether these subjects also have similar magical powers to situational changes with regard to content and languages? I have no evidential research findings on this aspect.
Contents of Palm leaf if written by Rishis in Sanskrit which is evident from the libraries having some of the original works no Naadi then the Naadi which books are in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada or Hindi Must have been translated at a later date.
Even these translated versions are also in palm leaf that means they date back to an era when paper was not in use for writings. In 2nd century BC Chinga has the archeological record of fragments of pof paper making. That means these translations should have taken place before 2nd century BC. The earliest epigraphic records found on rock edicts and hero stones date from around the 3rd century BCE. The sangam literature dates back from the 300 BCE. Tamil Language history research Old Tamil dates back between 300 BCE – 700 CE Middle Tamil dates back between 700-1600 and modern Tamil dates between 1600 to date. Since the language of Tamil used is very old it can be traced between 300 BCE – 700 CE and therefore these palm leaves must belong to this period when paper was not in use.
Prior use of written language the subject Naadi was taught orally to the disciples. Later on some of them have been transcribed in to vernacular on Palm leaves. That’s how the taala patra granthas came into existence. The wonder incident that Dr. Raman experienced where the back palm leaf converted into contents and then changing in the chosen language languages endorses the miraculor powers of transcribers. Such occult powers which are flowing through the palm leaves till perception levels framed in modern scientific outlook. There are others who had wonderful experiences with regard to naadi regarding. One of the famous astrologer and an advocate by profession vouchsafed similar experience with little variations. He was dumbstruck when the Naadi reader said in Tamil Kumbha Lagnathil kelvikaaran.
To record description and events of generations in coded language on talapatra bundles there must be a secret key which is known only to these traditional Naadi readers. The original Sanskrit contents were transformed into many regional languages like Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi. Segregated regionally the collection of Talapatra by the Naadi readers. These gransthas include Agastya Naadi, Brighu Naadi, Brahma Naadi, Shiva Naadi, Kaushika Naadi, Kashyapa Naadi etc.
