Though Numerology and numerological divination are regarded as pseudo mathematics or pseudoscience by modern scientist; once they were instrumental in delineating the charactorial flaws and the ways of progress for the betterment of an individual.
The penumbra of Tamil numerology, like other numerology systems (Chaldean, Pythagorean, etc) started its journey as a means by which it cultivated to highlight the nooks and corners of an individuals future, discover personality attributes, analyze the vibrational qualities of baby names, read the harmonic patterns of planets and their relationships with each other (astrology), thereby trying to make sense of the fabric of "reality" that one surrounds one selves. Through research, observation and documentation, numerologists have laboured to gain a better understanding of the universe and one's place in it.

The numbers define the psychological profile, the 'ahamkara' (ego) and the karmic residue, in terms of the strength and weaknesses people are born with and will learn and refine through in this lifetime. The vibrational forces have a very distinct quality for each planet on human destiny. The practice of Numerology involves the number from one to nine, the seven luminaries, plus Rahu
