Introduction: The mysterious "Pancha-Pakshi Shastram" is a unique system of Vedic astrology, propounded by ancient Tamil Siddha Saints thousands of years ago (1). Pacha-Pakshi Shasta is very popular in south India especially Tamil Nadu. Pancha-Pakshi Shastra is based on ancient literature in Tamil language. Pancha stands for five and Pakshi stands for Bird. The Pancha-Pakshi system has some resemblance to the Pancha-Bootham (Five elements) system of Vedic Astrology. It is believed that the Five Elements represented by five birds, influence and control all the actions of human beings. The five birds in the Pancha-Pakshi Shastra are: Vulture, Owl, Crow, Cock and Peacock These birds engage in any one of the following five activities at any given time: Rule (Arasu), Eat (Oon), Walk (Nadai), Sleep (Thujil), Die (Saavu). The birds are considered most powerful when they rule and least powerful when they sleep and die. Aim: To Study the Siddha Diagnostic Methods of Pancha- Patchi Sasthiram for Neerilivu.
