INDIAN PLAMISTRY BY MRS. J. B. DALE.






CHEIROMANCY, the art of foretelling the events  of life by the lineaments of the hand, derived its  name from the Greek word chciros, the palm, and  umnteia, to foretell, whence it has been vulgarly  called Palmistry as it is named in a recent Act  of Parliament to forbid its practice for gain or  reward. In Coleman's Mythology of the Hindoos,  p. 202, it is written: "On the Buddha's foot is the  mark called the 'chakravarti,' wheel or discus,  which should have been on the palm of the hand,  by which the sages at his birth divined that he  would rise to considerable eminence."
