In Palmistry, fingers (the Electric Poles) act as the manifestation of energy of the Mounts (the Power House).
A Brief Background of Vedic Palmistry
Palmistry, composed by Sage Samudra, is an integral part of ‘Samudrik Shastra’. Samudra Rishi was the first to write about this science. That is why Palmistry was known by scholars as Samudrena and the science was called as “Samudrikaam”. Prior to this, it was known as ‘Anga Lakshan Shastra”, the science of the physical body’s symptoms. The ancient records are a bit confusing as “Samudra” was a title and many sages were known by the name Samudra. Hence it is not possible to fix any date for the composition of “Samudrikaam”.
Sage Narad composed the Narad Puranas around 6th century BC. According to Pauranic references, it was the ascetic Narad who was the first person to forecast, after seeing the hand of Girija, the daughter of King Himalaya and Queen Maina, about her prospective husband’s peculiarities.
Dr. Manish Pandit, a nuclear medicine physician, after corroborating all researches of Dr. Narhari Achar, a professor of physics at the University of Memphis, Tennessee, in the US, in 2004 – 2005, says that The Great War between the Pandavas and the Kauravas took place in 3067 BC. If the above calculations are correct, then Palmistry in India exists for more than 5000 years.
