Basics of numerology



SCIENCE OF FORTUNE: Pandit Sethuraman, revised and translated by V.S. Guruswami; Minakshi Family Trust, New No. 14, old no. 19, Srinivasan Street, Mandaveli, Chennai-600028. Rs. 455.

DOES MISFORTUNE chase you or peace of mind elude you? Effect suitable changes in your name (English) through addition or deletion of alphabets to make fortune smile on you! Names in consonance with the date of birth will ensure success in all walks of life!

This is the core message of this well-researched book that claims to unlock the secrets of numerology and uncover the innate and immense power potential of alphabets in names that could alter the course of destiny of the life of an individual.

The occult art denoting cosmic vibrations of numbers — one to nine symbolically representing the nine planets — and how they exercise their benign and malefic influence on humans depending on their dates of birth as also the names (alphabets are allotted to each planet and given specific numerical value) are well portrayed in the book.

Suggestions have been given on how the science could be fine-tuned to help people lead a comfortable and peaceful life.

The date of birth indicates the planetary influence and name (arrangement of alphabets in the name) sound vibrations. Both have to be in tune with each other to ensure a happy and prosperous life.

It is explained that this has to be done judiciously through addition or deletion of alphabets in the name.

What are bound to stir up the curiosity and inquisitiveness of the readers are the chapters on numerology and medicine. Another important and educative chapter is the one that deals exhaustively with different aspects like general qualities, physique, professions, diseases that are likely to afflict, lucky and unlucky dates, of persons born on different dates — one to nine.

Details are copious with regard to name numbers (sum total of the numerical values of alphabets). Citing examples, the author refers to the lucky name number 49 which he says will shower abundant riches, 13 gives only severe grief, 47 helps people come up very fast in life, 46 helps one to reach the pinnacle of success, 37 lifts even an ordinary person to the most prominent position in life. Forty-four and 45 cause leprosy for those born on the 18th.

Numerology, the book claims, can even help couples overcome tragedies if marital compatibility is in tune with their birth number and destiny number.


One vital question that is bound to rankle the mind of a serious reader is whether a mere alteration in the name could bring about the "wonders" promised in the book in the backdrop of the well known Karma theory — working of the law of cause and effect.

The book does not say anything about those in miserable plight and wallowing in poverty despite their having been born on the so-called lucky dates of births and bestowed with names that are in perfect consonance also.

However, it provides solace even to the unfortunate who are cursing their fate day in and day out.
