  2. Hi friend,

    See if there is any good Nadi Astrologer near your place. It is advisable to get reviews of the Nadi reader before fixing an appointment. You can ask you friends or relatives if someone have tried his service.

  6. Nadi jotsyam is so accurate. one should have strong will power to withstand the descriptions of the past, present and future. Normally, I have not come across anyone who has had the guts to complete the whole cylcle.

  7. I got my Nadi reading done and as the Deeksha Kandam remedy, they mentioned that Guruji will chant "Sadachar mantra" for 10 months to bring good luck to me.

    I was wondering if anyone of you know what it "Sadachar mantra" and if I should chant it myself rather than requesting Guruji for it.

    Thanks for your response.
