Jeev Rekhaa -

Palmistry is another very common method of prediction. Its best bet is that it can be used anywhere if the person is proficient in it - in the hotel, airplane, on the road (one may find many sitting in India), house etc etc. In Palmistry or palm reading, people read the lines of palms and then predict future of the native. The palmist of course interprets all those unintelligible lines crisscrossing your palm. Of all the branches of fortune-telling, this one does seem to have some logic. Remember the fingerprints are so unique to each individual that it is the most widely applied technique to nail a criminal. Many palmists when read the palms of several people, to their astonishment they can reveal many of the past events in their lives. Some people are so good in reading the palm lines that one is sometimes astonished to hear the correct prediction. In this system, people just see the palms and predict by just seeing the lined appearing over them.

I always believe that there is certain coordination in every creation of God. This sync is important whether it is in music, arts or anything. Best artist is one who understands this sync. This is called "Laya and Taal." Betaal is one who does not understand the music. Every creation of God has this inherent coordination. Even Vastu is a coordination of objects around us. It is a kind of reverse engineering. It means understanding the maths of painting and then creating a painting through the same knowledge. Usually artists follow the direct path which is also good. They reach the same goal by direct knowledge. Same is the case with Palmistry.

Palm lines are interpreted by several Palmists in different ways. Same lines are called with different names and everybody carries a different interpretation. I have my own. I believe that most of the lines have a reason for their existence. I am talking about the primary lines of life, head and heart.

Jeev Rekhaa
Time and again,  why heart or "Jeev Rekhaa" should start below Mercury and why it should not start from somewhere else? It is Brahm within, who is telling me all this. Nothing is mine.

"Jeev Rekhaa" is "Jeev Rekhaa" because Jupiter is Jeev Kaarak. A Naadee astrologer will tell you why Jupiter is Jeeva Kaarak and what is the meaning of Raahu in front of this planet. This Jeev represents life so the "Saamudrik Shaastra" tells us that it is Life line. There is another meaning of the same line. Below the finger of Mercury there is place which belongs to Ketu. Ketu is not a planet but it is considered a very strong point in traditional Vaidik astrology. Ketu is related to Spirituality and renunciation. Near to Ketu is the mount of Mercury which shows the initial point of spirituality starts from education which in turn is a part belonging to Mercury only.

But "Buddhi" or Mercury cannot give you final renunciation. It is just the starting point. The Jeeva Rekhaa shows the same. Starting from the base knowledge it leads one to higher learning or spiritual knowledge which belongs to Jupiter only. Jeev Rekhaa is just like the journey of a Jeev or Aatmaa. It starts from base education and then rests in higher learning. This is a hidden sign given to every Jeev. So this line starts below Mercury field and reaches the higher plains of Jupiter. That is the reason why it is called a Jeev Rekhaa. Ketu is Brahm Randhra in human body. The Jeev travels from body to body and carries the inherent Sanskaar in it. It acquires a body through mortal beings like man and woman.

But Jeev's journey in this body is represented by this Rekhaa. Ketu carries the past Sanskaar which is reason behind this birth. This Jeev Rekhaa is the present body of this soul. The setting of this Jeev Rekhaa tells us whether the journey of knowledge is starting from Brahm within, or it is starting from the process of Tark Vitark. Its final position tells us whether the soul is still hanging between questions and logic or it has set its Laya or music set with supreme Brahm. A mere glance on it can tell you about the journey of the soul. Please refer to the picture to understand the same.

Maatri (Head or Chandra) and Pitri Rekhaa
There are two more lines which are important. One is called Maatri Rekhaa or Moon Line. It is also known as the line of head. The second is the Pitri Rekhaa or the line of vitality. They both start from the area of Raahu above the field of Mars. Mars and Venus are placed inside the line of life or Pitri Rekhaa. Mars + Venus represent the birth of human body. Most of time Maatri and Pitri Rekhaa are combined from the beginning. Most of us are born with bondage that is why Raahu is just placed above the Mars area from where these two lines originate. Mars, Venus and Moon (in darker half) represent the base level things represented by Raahu. Raahu area is also known as Pitri Kshetra in hand. Pitri Kshetra also means belonging to ancestors.

Our soul has bondage or Rin, be it in form of Pitri or Matri Rin, hence we take this body to remove all those bondages and ties (or we just get
tangled). It is interesting to note that when these two lines are not combined in the beginning, the person is more of an independent sort and does not believe in too much bondage.

So much so that some Saamudrik books represents the delinking of the two as a birth of a characterless person. But the meaning of the same is entirely different. Actually, when Head line or Matri Rekhaa is not combined to Life Line or Pitri Rekhaa then it begins from Raahu's (Dragon head) area. Here the mind is ruled by shadows or is fogged. Such a person carries a shadowed mind. When this Head Line or Maatri Rekhaa is wavy as a serpent then the person will get affected by spirits. Sometimes people like them are unreliable. They are stubborn when these lines originate from higher up. They make friends and foes very easily.

Raahu also represents demons or possessions in astrology. Gulikaa has special say in these matters. These kinds of things happen because of past births and Sanskaar. That is why Maatri Rekhaa originating from Raahu's area represents possessions. This is a complex topic and needs further learning to grasp its meaning. People having such combination have strong Raahu and often Raahu, Moon and Mars are placed in same direction.

All base instincts represented by Venus, Mars etc are related to Raahu or Maayaa. All things related to knowledge and Gyaan belong to Ketu.

Maatri Rekhaa is also called Chandra Rekhaa. So Maatri Rekhaa cannot be called head line. Shaastra tell us "Chandramaa Mansoh jaatkah". This means Moon is the heart of a person so this line should be called Manah Rekhaa. There is no representation of Man in body. Hence in Western Palmistry it is called "Head line".

Chandra Rekhaa and Shukra Rekha both represents the base things like emotions, love, passion etc. In short they represent the bondages because of which we take birth again and again. Venus and Mars fill a person with zeal and passion. May be that is the reason why it is called Life Line. But these are the base things in life. Jeev should be inclined to Nirvaan that is why Jeev Rekhaa is life line. Also Jeev Kaarak is Jupiter only.

Jeev Rekhaa carries soul Soorya Parvat (Sun Mount), Karm Parvat (Shani or Saturn Mount) and Buddhi (Buddha or Mercury Mount). These are the things which travel from birth to birth. Shaastra explain how Jeev is bounded by Shani or Karm. In Bhagvad Geetaa there is a Shlok which says:
Yatha dhenu sahastreshu vatso vindanti matram,
Tatha poorv kritam karmam kartaar manu gachchhati

Karm can discover you, no matter how many births you have taken. They are like a calf who can find out its mother even from a herd of thousand of cows. They follow you from birth to birth, you cannot hide from them. This cannot be explained though the science which people call science.

When Jeev Rekhaa is chained or crippled it indicates problems in the present journey of the Jeev. If it is assisted by an unavailable Shani Rekhaa or Destiny Line then the person has to lead a very difficult life. When a crippled Jeev Rekhaa goes down towards Raahu or Pitri Kshetra then the person has a combination of Jupiter and Raahu. Even its wavy structure denotes the same. When Jeev Rekhaa has tail like structure in its origin or end and there is a sign of eye or fish near the phalange line of thumb then the person is a soothsayer or he will possess the power of seeing the future.
