This is the palm print of Swami Vivekananda. It was taken on 6-4-1895 and presented by 'Chiero' in his book. Let us analyse the palm print of this great sage of modern India.
At the outset, we can see that this palm belongs to the 'philosophic palm' group with a mix of practicality, because of the square shape of the center of his palm. This indicates that Swami has refined philosophical bent of mind with a practical outlook. Mysticism and practical leadership qualities co-existed in him.
His lifeline is short. It has travelled well into the middle of his palm along with his heart line. We can see the formation of 'tangle' in this area and also an 'island'. We know that he lost his father in his youth leaving the family in utter penury. Owing to his short lifeline, the Swami died at the young age of 39.
His Venus mount is well formed. He was an excellent singer. He could also play well on harmonium, tabla and tambura. According to sources, he had a sweet and enchanting voice, natural to yogis. He sang the song 'O mano, chalo nija niketane' ( O mind, go to your own place) in the presence of Sri Ramakrishna, which sent the Master into Samadhi state.
Most of the Venus mount is under the control of his thumb, which shows that his musical talents are under the control of his Soul. This is the basic difference between a person talented in fine arts and a yogi. A musician, for example, may or may not have self-control, but a Yogi without self-control is not worth his salt. In a person's hand, Self control and Soul power are denoted by the thumb. The low set thumb of Swami indicates his soul power and broad outlook.
Well formed Jupiter's mount indicates his deep philosophical nature. The 'ladder' in his Jupiter mount shows his spiritual ascent into the higher realms. 'Solomon's ring' is not clearly visible in his hand due to poor print quality, but it might have been there, in all probability.Many yogis and mystics are seen to possess this sign invariably.
Fate line stopped below the heart line. So the Swami never ventured earning money for his sake, true to the tradition of ancient Indian Saints who take poverty as a rule of spiritual life. The head line, crossing fate line, is slanting towards mount of Moon. The connection between fate line and Moon's mount shows that Saturn and Moon are together in his birth chart. This yoga gives, among others, a tendency towards renunciation of pleasures and consequent mystical bent of mind.The head line, though tilting towards Moon's mount has become weak in the end. This indicates that, though the Swami had high emotional nature, it is well under his control.
The heart line spreads into 5 branches, out of which, one goes to Jupter's mount and the others go to Saturn. This is an indication of religious and yogic stature. This sign resembles a five-headed serpent indicating the awakened Kundalini Shakti in the Swami.
The circle of Moon on the Saturn's mount reveals a stunning fact that Saturn and Moon are together in the Swami's birth chart. Indeed they are together in his chart in the Kanya Rasi. Many times, indications from the palm reinforce those available in the birth chart and vice versa. This sign gives out very promising results in spiritual life i.e self realization,God realization, supernatural powers and a genuine spiritual perfection. Such persons possess the power of Vak-Siddhi. Whatever they say comes true.They have the power to alter 'fate' according to their will.We can recognize such persons to be true and genuine gurus.
The lines projecting from heart line towards mount of Sun are like a cup. This shows his acquaintance with kings and saints. We know that he possessed a royal build. These lines start from Ketu mount and show that his acquaintances have roots in spirituality.
The mystic crosses between his head and heart lines point towards supernatural powers possessed by the Swami. The symbol of 'mystic eye' in his hand shows that he had divine clairvoyant vision.
Two horizontal lines on the mount of Moon indicate his two foreign trips. Weak and criss-crossed health line shows his delicate health in the ending years of his life. He suffered from hypertension, diabetes and asthma in his later years.
It is difficult to imagine more results from the poor quality of this palm print. However, from this reading, we can see that palm reading gives very accurate results. Astrology also gives accurate results. But the astrologer's task is much more than that of a palmist.In Astrology, one has to intelligently blend the qualities of houses, rasis and planets. In addition, mathematical deductions play a major role in astrology, be it computation of various dasas or other calculations. Palmistry is mastered easier than Astrology, but intuition plays an important role in both these occult arts.
