Written By : Nandika Chand. Very few people in this world know the art of astrology and predicting and foretelling the future.
Some people are anxious to know what the future holds for them and want to know the details in advance.
Whereas there are some people who want to live each day as it comes not worrying about what wanting to know what the future holds for them.
When we come to think of it, there will be no fun if we already know what is going to happen to us in the future.
If we know what is going to happen then there will not be the joy and we will be even more anxious and be victims of stress.
Nowadays we come across quite a few advertisements in the newspapers about people who can predict your future charging a certain fee ranging from $2 to $5.
Fiji Sun’s Island Life came across a 48-year-old Baba (Pandit) Muni Raj who is all the way from India.
Pandit Ji Raja as he is known has been in the country for two and a half months now.
This Pandit specializes in Chiromancy which is palmistry and Physiognomy which is face reading.
“Chiromancy is the art of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of palm,” Pandit Raja said.
“It is also known as palmistry, palm-reading and chirology (hand analysis). This art has been captivating the interest of people for a very long time,” he said.
“Palm-reading, otherwise known as palmistry or chiromancy, is practiced all over the world, with roots in Indian astrology and gypsy fortune-telling,” he said.
“The objective or purpose is to evaluate a person’s character or future by studying the palm of their hand,” he said
“This practice is found all over the world, varying through cultures and traditions in the world,” he said.
“This art runs through my blood as this has been in our family generations for years and years,” he said.
“My great-grandfather was an astrologer and passed this on to my grandfather and my grandfather passed it on to my father and this art eventually came to me,” he added.
Pandit Raja said all his family members knew how to do palm and face reading.
He said he has been practicing this from childhood and was blessed with this unique gift from the almighty.
“It is not like when I see someone’s palm or face and tell them immediately what is going to happen to them or what happened in their past,” Pandit Raja said.
“Astrology and palmistry is not only practiced by Hindus but other races and religions in the world,” he said.
“There is Chinese astrology, Tarot reading and Numerology to tell a few and there are many other forms,” he said.
“Some god gifted people can tell a person’s future by just looking at their forehead,” he said.
“In Hinduism there is a belief that the individual’s destination or future is written on the forehead and this is very much true,” he said.
“There are lines on the forehead and this is used in foretelling the past, present and the future and this is very much like palmistry,” he said.
“Some people have many lines on their palms and some people have lesser lines on their palms,” he said.
Pandit Raja said the lines of the palm keep changing as we grow older and the lines tell different things from health, wealth to love life and problems to be endured
He said apart from palmistry and face reading he also did raasi (horoscopes) and numerology.
“I can read the person’s face and palm and tell them about their past. Present and future,” Pandit Raja said.
“The most unforgettable and unique feature of a human is his/her face. A trained face reader can read each facial feature and line on a face to develop an accurate profile of its owner,” he said.
“Each face reflects in its structures and lines its owner’s personal history, mental attitudes, intimacy needs, ethics, emotional style, and verbal communication,” he said.
“Almost anything you want to know about a person is literally as plain as the nose on their face,” he said.
“Face reading gives you the facts you need to make important decisions, and alerts your perceptions to develop a deeper understanding of every person you will ever interact with,” he said.
“My customers also enquire about their education, job, promotion, love life, marriage, husband and wife problem and birth of child,” he said.
“In Hinduism the continuous problems in life is called ghara which the individual may experience after every three to fours years of his life for example if the person was sickly in 1993 and this is a ghara then it will come back to him in 1996 and 1999 and so on unless it is solved by holding a pooja ceremony,” Pandit Raja said.
“Before coming to Fiji, I went to Malaysia and Malaysia to help the people there by foretelling their future and helping them out in solving their live problems,” he said.
“Fiji is a very beautiful and peaceful country. I have been here for the past two and a half months and am now regarding as this country my second home,” he said.
“Here business is a bit slack as many people do not want to know their future in advance,” he said.
“In Bangalore India where I live, people used to come every now and then to m to help them solve their problems,” he said.
“It is a known that quite a number of Hindus are superstitious and go to their pandit or to an elderly in the family to seek guidance,” he said.
“In business terms, here in Fiji, hardly anyone comes to me to tell met o perform a pooja ceremony for them or to predict their future,” he said.
“On some days a number of people come to me at once and I have to be on my toes to be at their service,” he said.
Pandit Raja said face reading and palmistry was a god’s gift to him and he was using it for the betterment of the society and community.
