It is just a new western ‘gimmick’ to entice people says PRAVEEN SINGH CHAUHAN
A new branch of medical commerce called ‘palm surgery’ is being propagated in some advanced countries for improving and changing one’s fate simply by altering palm lines through laser devices. It is being publicised as a sure shot way to change people’s lives and future by manipulating existing lines on palms.
Can it be possible? Are we not in the making of a fatalist mankind? By manipulating lines, are we not creating lazybones,who instead of working for the pursuance of their dreams would sit idle and do nothing, waiting for the desired to happen because they have altered their fate lines?
The network of lines on the palm is formed when a child is in the womb of the mother. These lines will change throughout aman’s life. Usually, the palm line has a formation period and alters up to 16 years of age from the birth of a child. The chief lines — like the life and fortune lines — stop changing at the age of 16 years, but the other lines keep changing throughout life according to a person’s karma.
In our scriptures, the theory of karma is long established and now being accepted in the world of wisdom. If we pursue wrong, we shall never get good in return. If we pursue right, we will be entitled to receiving good in return. So how can a hardened psychopath criminal become a saint by simply altering the fortune line on his palm?
Science is based on experimentation. Palmistry stands on the belief that a human palm line reflects his karma and experiences in life. The other things that are taken into consideration are the shape of palm and whether the palm is soft or hard. Palmistry is a science for believers and also has a scientific relevance. But it is also true that fortune favours those who work hard for it, desire it and pursue it with all concentration and energies. It is known to all that Valmiki was a cruel bandit who went on to become a sage. So, we can shape our life according to our choice and dreams if we pursue with diligence.
Moreover, the lines of our palm change periodically as per our karma and we can also change our lines through karma.However, ultimately the rule of nature prevails.
Can we change our genetic configuration by altering the lines on the palm? Can we change our karma? It is not only hypothetical but utterly absurd. In all likelihood, and indications are, that this surgical gimmickry may reach India soon. Indians are already well-known fatalists;will it not increase our inbound dependence on fate?
Karma is eternal; it is an energy that no time can change and a strength that will stay with you even in your next life.Try to be happy from within. Learn the joy of giving and to be happy with things that money is unable to buy. These small things, if followed, can help you have a better karmic life.
