Welcome to the Birla College of Vedic Palmistry! You are about to embark on an exciting journey of self-discovery that will profoundly enrich your life.
Decades of experience have taught me that palmistry can be used to examine the innermost corners of the human psyche. Consultations with tens of thousands of clients have confirmed that all of our hopes and dreams, phobias and fears, desires and disease, attitudes and addictions are registered in the lines of our hands. More importantly, I have discovered that the root causes for any of these disruptions and distresses—imbalances in our personal energy—can also be found in our palms.
For me, this discovery reinforced palmistry’s potential as a precision tool to bring about change and healing as well as a potent preventive measure to avoid mental, emotional and physical illness. And because the lines of our hands change as our actions and attitudes change, palmistry acts as an extraordinary barometer of personal growth—a tried and true route to creating or restoring balance in our lives.

Vedic Astrology Certification Program
Palmistry and astrology are twin sciences that originated together in the Vedas. They share the same root word, Jyot, meaning light. Jyotish refers to astrology, the study of the influence the light of the planets has on our lives. Vedic palmistry is known as Hast Jyotish—Hast, meaning “hand”. As such, Vedic Palmistry is the study of the influences of reflected planetary light revealed through the features of our hands. In India, it is commonly understood that astrology and palmistry are intrinsically connected.
The astrological (natal) chart provides an understanding of the client’s strengths, weaknesses and potential; the lines of their hand reveal whether or not they are living up to the potential seen in their chart. By taking handprints at six-month intervals, progress can be monitored by observing changes in the lines.
This 12-course astrology program provides the foundation students need to properly interpret the natal chart during a palmistry consultation. The Vedic Astrology Certification Program can be taken simultaneously with the Palmistry Certification Program.
