Welcome from Our Director Ghanshyam Singh Birla

Welcome to the Birla Online College! You might have landed on this page because you want to become a professional palmist, or perhaps you are just curious about this fascinating and ancient science, or maybe you just want to have a bit of fun reading your friends’ hands. Whatever reason brought you here, you are about to embark on an exciting journey of self-discovery that will profoundly enrich your life.


A Window Into the Self

Indeed, decades of experience have taught me that palmistry can be used to examine the innermost corners of the human psyche. Studying the handprints of tens of thousands of clients has confirmed for me that all our hopes and dreams, phobias and fears, desires and disease, attitudes and addictions are registered in 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. This discovery has convinced me that palmistry is a powerful tool that can be used to promote positive change and healing, as well as a highly effective preventive measure to avoid mental, emotional and physical illness. And because the lines of our hands change as our actions and attitudes change, palmistry is an extraordinary barometer of personal growth; Vedic palmistry is a tried and true method of creating, restoring and maintaining balance in our lives.


From India with Love

I left my native India and moved to Canada to introduce this life-changing form of palmistry to the West. In 1975 I founded the Birla College in Montreal, motivated by an unshakable belief that, by understanding what the lines in our hands reveal about our nature and by acting upon that enormous storehouse of self-knowledge, palmistry can and will improve our lives immeasurably.


Boost Your Magnetism

Like the Earth we live on, each of us possesses a magnetic force exuding tremendous energy that impacts everything around us and everything we do. Our hands reveal when and where this energy, this magnetism, is out of balance and creating disharmony in our lives.

When a client comes to the Birla Center with a serious problem—perhaps a contentious divorce, a health issue or a combative work relationship—we use palmistry to identify the underlying cause of the imbalance. Once an imbalance is identified, we suggest steps the client can take to restore balance and repair the faulty magnetism—a healthy magnetism creates better circumstances and draws positive people into their lives.

But palmistry is not a magic wand that makes problems disappear—ultimately it is up to each of us to initiate these positive changes by learning more about ourselves. At the Birla College, our approach to palmistry reflects this simple truth: our happiness is in our own hands. Taking a look at what the Birla College has to offer you is your first step in that direction.
