P-102 Discovering the Mounts—The Power of The Planets in The Palm of Your Hand

A thorough knowledge of the hand’s ten mounts is essential to fully understand and properly practice Vedic Palmistry. The mounts—or parwat, meaning ‘small mountain’ in Hindi—are individual pads of flesh on the palm. The mounts are the astrological counterparts to the planetary bodies of our solar system—the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, in addition to Rahu and Ketu. The mounts relate to our innermost self—the core of our being and who we really are. 

This course will provide an overview of the mounts in relation to the philosophy of Hast Jyotish. You will learn about the spiritual anatomy of consciousness as it is expressed through the development of the mounts by studying skin texture, color, consistency, papillary formation and the activity of lines and signs.

Here are the points that will be addressed in this course:

  • Basic Principles of Vedic Philosophy as a Foundation for the Practice of Palmistry
  • The Philosophical Explanation of the Mounts
  • Matter to Spirit: The Evolutionary Cycle of the Mounts
  • How to Determine the Development of a Mount
  • Standard Reference for Determining Balance in the Mount
  • The Formation of the Mount
  • Placement of the Fingers and Mounts
  • Texture, Consistency, Color and Temperature
  • The Three Worlds of the Finger and Mount
  • Papillary Patterns and Triradii
