Shri K.B. Gopalakrishnan was born to Smt. Saraswathi and
Shri Balasubramanian on 6th January, 1970 at Chennai. His native is a
village in Koyam balli near Tiruchirapalli District. His father was a good
palmist, though he gave it up all of a sudden after the age of 30 for
some unknown reason.
Late Shri K. Balasubramanian worked for the textile department,
government of Tamil Nadu and retired as an Assistant Director. He
used to travel on work, his passion was to visit the local temples in the
vicinity and he was very good in describing the paddhathi of those
temples about which he gathered much information.
His last posting was at the Kanchipuram District. As he knew the
history of the temples in and around Kanchipuram, he wanted to settle
down in this temple town in his last days. He did take up residence for
a very brief period but had to keep visiting his Chennai residence on
and off for health check-ups.
After he retired he wished to take up voluntary service for the
Kanchi Mutt under Sri Jayendra Saraswati Swamigal but could not stay
away from his family due to health reasons. In the year 2005 in August,
he died of a massive heart attack in the lap of his son, K.B.
Gopalakrishnan, who had just then returned from a tour of Singapore.
His mother retired as matron in the Stanley Medical Hospital,
Chennal in the year 1998. K.B. Gopalakrishnan, true to his birth asterism/
nakshatra is the jyestha suputra of his parents.
His maternal grandfather was an astrologer. The author comes
from a devout Telugu Brahmin family hailing from Trichy in Tamil Nadu.
His mother's side was the influencing factor in his taking up
astrology as a profession. In his early years he was exposed to the
family discussing astrology. His maternal uncles and their sons are all
astrologers settled in Chennai. The influence for taking up these subjects
was formed quite early in the life of the author.
His great grandmother was a much sought-after ayurvedic doctor
and also a practising astrologer. People would send her a bullock cart
to get their ailing family members treated. She was much respected.
My humble beginning in Nadi Astrology
This is a complete book on nadi though not the last word on it.
There are some books in nadi but none have spoken so clearly and
exhaustively as I have tried to do in this first book of mine. Some
books are just compilation of shlokas or making a passing mention of
one or two techniques. In this book a sincere attempt is made to present
what is nadi all about in a very comprehensive and practical way so
that these techniques can be applied by many astrologers in their daily
I was fascinated by nadi astrology. The reason for that was at the
age of 21, I had the good fortune to meet a nadi astrologer who gave
stunning predictions, all of which have come true so far. Having met
lot of nadi astrologers at a later point in time, I can say that none
paralleled the first nadi reader's predictions for me.
He said I would become a trikala gnani and would become famous
after 30 years of age. He mentioned about the exchange of Venus and
Jupiter in my chart indicating my learning many subjects without any
teachers. He was the most non-impressive of nadi readers I have ever
met. In the sense he would be so restless that getting a full reading in
one sitting was near impossible. He would get distracted even while
reading a chart! Bur all his predictions came out 100% correct.
I could learn ayurveda, vastu, astrology, feng shui, healing,
This is what he told me:
''You will become master of six arts and become famous after age
30 and also get married at 28" (both of which came true).
I now practice astrology, ayurveda, tarot cards, numerology, feng
shui and vastu as a professional. I can go to any of these conferences
and with ease I can command respect from the professional audience.
He also said a lot about the future, which has come true one by
one. 'You will become a teacher at a young age. Will become world
I used to wonder whether all this will come true. With time each
and every prediction started coming true.
I got a chance to speak on a slot on Jaya TV due to my friend,
Karthik's recommendation. That programmed turned out to be so popular
that people would contact me even for ordinary everyday problem
Many people saw my programmed on Jaya TV beamed from
Chennai and came to meet me. They were from different countries like
Qatar, Srilanka etc.
I used to talk on any subject of my choice and nothing was edited
out ultimately from the TV segment. The talk would run as it was shot
with no cuts with the programme directors and editors giving me a
free hand in doing the show my way.
I knew this nadi reader who predicted about my becoming master
of six arts was correct after all. What really made me wonder about it
all later was because I did not know even one art properly at age 21!
I used to write articles in mundane astrology in sify.com's astrology
columns with many of my predictions coming true.
Many Indians living abroad started visiting me from America.
Some of them even told me whenever they visited India they made it
a point to visit Chennai, only to meet me and no one else.
I no longer appear on Jaya TV nor do [write for sify.com but [do
have a website in which I express my opinions freely without fear or
favour. The reader can check this site: www.sathyaprema.com
Anyway I have taken several nadi readings and met a man who
taught me the rules of Ganapathy Nadi. Ihave also impressed nadi
astrologers with my predictive skills!
I met a nadi astrologer who had Dhanus lagna and four planets in
his seventh house of spouse. Using nadi techniques, I asked him whether
he fell in love with a girl but left her and got married to his present
wife. He was absolutely awestruck because it was true.
In this book I will proceed in the journey of revealing nadi
techniques. I will share quite a few of these nadi astrology techniques
without going into the details of how I got them. I feel one needs to
understand how to use these techniques. I have not unravelled all the
nadi techniques but only a part of them. I am sure there are many
techniques remaining unexplored even as of now.
