Vasishta Nadi Astrology in Vaitheeswaran Koil

Vasishta is a manasputra of God Brahma and one of the Saptarishis (Seven Great Sages Rishi). He had the divine cow Kamadhenu and her child, Nandini, who could do anything for their owners. Vasishta's wife goes by the name Arundhati. Among Indian nadi astrologers, Sage Vasishta is referred to as Vasishta Nadi or Vasishta Nadi Jyothisham for the numerous palm leaves he wrote on nadi astrology. In his Vasishta Nadi, sage Vasishta made predictions about the path that human souls take during the birth and life cycles.

Mandala 7 of the Rigveda is credited to Vasishta, one of the nine Prajapatis. In RV 7.33, Vasishta and his family are praised for their part in the Battle of the Ten Kings. This makes him the only mortal other than Bhava to be the subject of a Rigvedic hymn.

Nadi astrology is a well-founded science, as the ancient manuscripts Brihatsamhita, Jathaka Paarijatha, and other works demonstrate. Nadi, which combines palmistry and numerology, provides alternative methods for predicting an individual's future. The Nadi Jothidam is its ancient name.

The essential quality that is associated with the palm leaf is the nativity's predictions for the future. The language of palm leaves is referred to as Olai Chuvudi Jothidam by Vaitheeswran Koil. The palm leaves that were once kept in the library of Tanjore Saraswati Mahal in Tamil Nadu have predictions written on them about the past, the present, and the future. When the British ruled southern India, some of the leaves were destroyed, and the remaining ones were sold at auction. Since the palm leaves fell into the hands of the Astrologer families in Vaitheeswaran Koil centuries ago, they have been nurtured, cared for, and transformed.

We are a part of one of the families of Vaitheeswaran Coil astrologers who have kept up with the changing times and have served the Nadi astrology well. Among us are many well-known astrologers who read the Nadi.
