Shuka or Sugar is a rishi (sage) in Hinduism. He is the son of the sage Vyasa and the main narrator of the scripture Bhagavata Purana. Most of the Bhagavata Purana consists of Shuka reciting the story to the king Parikshit in his final days. Shuka is depicted as a sannyasi, renouncing the world in pursuit of moksha (liberation), which most narratives assert that he achieved.
Sage Sugar, with his enormous spiritual power, has predicted humanity birth life cycles & their entire life such as past, present & future to guide them to salvation called ‘Moksha’.
Sage Sugar astrology predictions are called Sugar Nadi Jothidam Astrology as they are inscribed in nadi palm leaves in India. Sugar Nadi provides deep, clear analysis, understandings & predictions of a person as a forecast using his/her thumb impression. Sugar Nadi Jothidam Astrology is still being practiced by many Nadi astrologer & Nadi readers in India which helps many to bring happiness & peace in their life.
According to the Hindu epic Mahabharata, after one hundred years of austerity by Vyasa, Shuka (Sugar) was churned out of a stick of fire, born with ascetic power and with the Vedas dwelling inside him, just like his father. As per Skanda Purana, Vyasa had a wife, Vatikā, daughter of a sage named Jābāli. Their union produced a son, who repeated everything what he heard, thus receiving the name Shuka (Sugar).
Other texts including the Devi Bhagavata Purana also narrate the birth of Shuka but with drastic differences. Vyasa was desiring an heir, when an apsara (celestial damsel) named Ghritachi flew in front of him in form of a beautiful parrot. He discharges his semen, which fell on some sticks and a son developed. This time, he was named Shuka because of the role of the celestial parrot.
