If you want ‘good stuff’ to happen to you, then do ‘good stuff’.

If you do ‘bad stuff’ then you get ‘bad stuff’.

Think of The Agents of Karma like a Spiritual Santa Claus – Your karma is logged and the gifts of life are given out accordingly- to whomever is naughty and to whomever is nice!

Whatever your spiritual beliefs, you can leverage this “law” for your benefit.

Whatever it is that you want in life, find a way to give it, or ‘bring it’ to others. It is simple really:
• If you want more support, then be more supportive
• If you want more help, then be more helpful
• If you want more friends, then be more friendly
• If you want more love in your life, then be more loving
Whatever it is that you want, you’ve got to ‘bring it’ first.

The ultimate reality is that we are just sound vibrations, Vedic scholar Baskaran Pillai tells Sonal Srivastava (as published in the Speaking Tree- link below)

What is Nadi Astrology?
It’s one of the oldest forms of astrology Nadi leaves have predictions about past, future and present, written on them. Nadi astrologers are trained to read writings on leaves that appear like scribbles on its surface. Just by looking at your thumbprint, a Nadi astrologer will be able to tell you your name, your father’s name, your mother’s name, how old you are, when you were born, how many children you have and also the diseases you are suffering from.

The astrologer will ask you some questions, for instance: is your name starting with letters such as K or C or G? This form of astrology is based on the theory that souls are classified as sounds and there are different permutations and combinations of souls. It is based on ancient linguistics. The leaves are classified according to the thumbprints; by looking at the thumbprint, they will bring the bundle and then match it with your profile. Some say that writings on the leaves were by rishis, who wrote in Sanskrit.

A Tamil king collected the leaves and preserved them in a library. Later, the leaves were auctioned by the British to a few astrologers and they became the custodians of this knowledge.

How important are sound vibrations in our understanding of the soul?

The ultimate reality is we are just sound vibrations and Nadi Astrology is also based on sound vibrations. Souls are eternal and are ever-evolving; they were not created by anyone. Everybody has a soul, even plants and animals have souls. By souls, we mean consciousness or sound; for sound vibrations create consciousness.

The string theory in Particle Physics talks about vibrations. Your sound vibrations match with that of sound vibrations representing your father and mother. There is a family of souls and somehow, it’s related to your thumbprint. There are no accidents in life even if it is a disease that you are suffering from, it is predetermined. Medicine deals with the physical body; it can’t diagnose the problems in the subtle body. Everything visible has an invisible basis; for instance, matter is not just matter, but it is made up of particles.

A glass of water is not just a glass of water; it’s a bunch of atoms or strings, but you see it as matter. You don’t think of me as atoms, you perceive me as reality. You are only seeing reality through your senses and your senses are restricted to the material world. What you see is only maya as we process everything through the mind. Soul is a conscious entity; it is everywhere including inanimate objects, and they also have knowingness. Earlier we used to think that only the brain thinks, but our genes think too.

Do sound vibrations have the power to change our lives?
Thought is made up of sound vibrations There is often a debate on which comes first, thought or word? Can you think a thought without a word? Word itself is made of syllables. There are 16 vowels and 35 consonants that create consciousness. The first sound is ‘a’ — it can give you omniscience; ‘ah’ will give you omnipotence, sound of ‘ee’ will give you desire. Consciousness was created from the drums of Shiva. These sound vibrations are building blocks of energy and matter.

If you know sound waves, you can create everything.

What are seed mantras?
Mantras generate energy in you For instance, ‘aim’ is the sound for Saraswati; if you repeat it, you develop intellect. When you utter the mantra, the brain produces alpha waves for creating harmony in the brain Shrim is Lakshmi’s mantra; practising it attracts wealth. The Lakshmi mantra can shield you from stock market fluctuations, if done collectively. Klim is the mantra of Parvati that helps you work on your relationships and find a life partner.

There are different ways of doing the japa. Usually, when you have said the mantra at least 10 lakh times, you can analyse whether you were able to accomplish anything that you wanted to at the start of the mantra. A japa is another way of chanting, you don’t have to move your lips or your vocal chords — you chant the mantra in your mind. Another way of using the mantra is called pashyanti, which is a pre-thought form; you just keep the mantra in your mind It is like an idea — you know that it is present, but it is only a concept in your mind.

I knew I had a leaf.  I was at an evening seminar Toronto lead by an enlightened Siddha Master from India.  He spoke of these mysterious leaves that promised to be destiny changing.

Although the logic of it seemed improbable, my gut feeling was that I had a leaf and I was going to India to find it.   I knew I had a leaf.

Within 4 weeks I was at the entrance to a ‘Nadi House’ where the leaves were waiting.  I’d since learned that written on these leaves was the story of my soul; what was my past,  present and the future of my journey.  The system itself was referred to as Nadi Astrology and I was at a Nadi Reader’s house to experience ‘something’ that was truly amazing.  The anticipation was a mix of anxiety and excitement.

I was ushered into a small room filled with heady incense and the sweet aroma of chai tea.  The Nadi Reader had bundles of ancient palm leaves on the desk in front of him.  He ceremoniously  unwound the string that held the seemingly fragile writings together.  The actions were so reverent.  He pondered over the first leaf for a moment and then began to ‘read’.  I couldn’t understand a word as the language was the almost lost old Tamil that was written and spoken in prose.   I was swept away in its charming intoxicating spell only to be urged to consciousness as the translator asked me if I had 3 brothers.

I obliged with the terms of agreement only to answer yes or no to the Reader’s questions.  I said no.  He flipped to the next leaf in the bundle and started to ‘sing’ again.  The translator asked if my mother’s name started with ‘pa’.  I said no.  Again, the reader flipped to the next leaf.  Was I born on a Tuesday?  Yes.  Did my father work as a doctor?  No… on to the next leaf.  It went on for about 45 minutes like this.  Yes or no.  Yes or no.

Then yes, yes, yes, yes….was this my leaf?  All the answers were yes!

My leaf had been found.  The next step was to have the leaf and all its’ ‘chapters’ translated and go and do the remedies.

…To Be Continued…

Karma is a Divine Law.  So is Grace.  The easiest way to access Grace is to feed a famished human being starving for food.  Grace can be seen in so many ways; the Grace of God, mercy, salvation, compassion or the promotion of goodness or well being.
