Hasta Samudrika Shastra - the most ancient palmistry system!

Post  Martijn (admin) on Tue Sep 28, 2010 11:16 pm



What do we know about the history of classic Indian palmistry?

First of all, what you really should know is that the book 'Hasta Samudrika Shastra' was written in the year 3102 B.C. This writing is known as the oldest known writing about hand reading (palmistry) in the world - and concerns a chapter of one of the oldest & most well-known writings in the history of human kind: the Indian Vedas.


In a 400 years old book 'Sariraka Shastra' is described how Vedic stanzas describe that 'Samudrika Shastra' (translated: 'body knowledge') evolved while Lord Vishnu was enjoying his yoga nidra in the company of his consort Lakshmi - on the serpents snake. Then the sea-lord Samudra arrived and began to write down the auspicious marks on the bodies of the divine couple - for the guidance of humanity.

Lord Vishnu + his consort Lakshmi on the serpent snake in the sea:


Unfortunately, the author of this old book is unknown...   Oh...nooo! ... but fortunately...  cheers ... I have a very nice litle translations of the book in lying in from of me, titled: 'Sariraka Sastra: Indian Science of Hand Reading based on the Kartikeyan System' by the well-known palmistry author V.A.K. Ayer.

'Hasta Samudrika Shastra' can literally be translated as: 'body knowledge of the hand' (hasta means 'hand').

NOTICE: Mispellings are seen quite commonly, resulting in: 'hast samudrik shastra', 'hasta samudrik shastra' and 'hast samudrika shastra', etc.

For those who would like to read more about the true origins of Vedic palmistry (+ why you will usually not find it in the street of India), I would like to recommend the following writings presented by Hart de Fouw (US) presentations:

Bump

An example of 'palmistry-abuse' in India was recently described by the Australia palm reader Roslyn Motter:
REPORT: Australian palm reader goes for a palm reading in India!

(Actually, it's a rather amusing story!)

Hello Roosi,

While mister Sen's book is titled 'Hast Samudrika Shastra' (1969), the content of the book almost completely based on the works of western palmists. So, the title of the book is a bit misleading... because it does not really relate to the ancient 'Hasta Samudrika Shastra'.

Hy Rosi and Martijn,

...just jumped off the airplane this early morning - I would motify Martijn's answer a little bit:
If you like Indian style or "classical" palmistry, K.C. Sen's "Hast Samudrika Shastra" is very worth to study and to know the content.
He knows the older (before the 1950ies) Western palmistry tradition very much. In his book he uses Western and Indian palmistry.
For excample: In the Capter IV: Cheiromancy he wrote about different "marks and signs according to Western school" and about "marks and sings according to Hindu school".
But it wasn't really possible for me to use the second patterns until today.

I think Martijn talked about "Sariraka shastra", translated and issued by V.A.K. Ayer.

Regards
Manfred

Martijn: Please, can you prove it if it's really for free?

Hello mikebull,

Manfred's download-website suggestion (nitrodownloads.net) appears to be no longer in use - since that website now only presents ads (which indicates that the domain name is no longer in use)
