Palmistry or Hasta Rekha Vigyan is the most popular and sought after branch of Samudrik Shastra.

The art of analyzing the palm as a blue print of person`s past, present, future, karmas, personality and life issues originated in the ancient mystique land of India.

PalmistryOur hands are the constant recipients of the continuous flow of electrical impulses from the brain. In fact the coordination between the conscious and Sub conscious mind with that of the hands is almost miraculous. The nerve endings and energy flow in the palm is responsible for etching out the presence of lines and mounts on them.

Studying these lines and other signs to know the details about a person comes under the practice of palmistry. Every sign in the palm tells something or the other about that person. Since the free will of the person is the most important cosmic force of all, palm lines and signs are changeable through the changing circumstances in our life.

Usually the hands are recognised as passive and active hand.
A right-handed person has right active hand, and a left-handed person has the left active hand. The other hand is known as passive hand. It is considered that the passive hand is the one we are born with. It conveys the inherent traits of the person. The active hand is more susceptible to our conscious efforts. Hence it is known as the hand determined by us.
Active hand is most important consideration while Studying palmistry, with the side consideration of passive hand as well.

Vedic palmistry also suggests the passive hand to be the hand from our past life (karmic imprint).

A remarkable difference between the two palms suggests that the person has either progressed or degraded (as per the palm readings) in his life. No significant change suggests that the person has done no conscious efforts in his life. He/ she has just followed his/ her inherent luck.
A comparative study of both the hands should be done to get more insight in the matter.

There are different forms of palm reading.Technically they are divided as:

  • Dermatoglyphics:


  • A study of skin ridge patterns and formations found on the fingertips and within the palms themselves. Much research is being conducted continuosly with regard to how certain patterns may be indicative of genetic problems

  • Chiromancy:


  • This is the stream in which the in-depth study of lines is done.

  • Chirognomy:


  • A study of genetic hand shape, finger shape, fingernails, texture, consistency, gesture, etc. Used by hand analysts in order to gain insight into aspects of the inner workings of the personality.

    Chirology or Cheirology is the combination of all these branches.

    The Indian palmistry divides the entire existence of human being in three sections:

  • Conscious or physical being (Tamas)

  • Lifeline define the way we live our life.

  • Subconscious or mental being (Rajas)

  • Headline and other minor lines depicts the way we think.

  • Super conscious or soul (Sattwa)

  • Heart line and Mounts are studied to gain insight on the love and depth of a person.

    Although, palmistry is being studied in a more scientific fashion in west or Europe, the original Samudrik Hasta Rekha embodies Vedic philosophy within itself in coalition with all the cosmic forces available.

    A popular school in the south of India is Sariraka Shastra based on the writings of Kartikeya. This system is also known as skanda system.

    Followers of sariraka sastra claim that this system is the oldest and most authentic, and that samudrika sastra has been diluted and simplified from the original teachings. Up to 153 lines are recognised and studied well in the palm. A more spiritual insight in the readings is done by defining and studying the "Atma rekha."
