There will be various explanations about What exactly Numerology Is. My findings are entirely different. Read this carefully for getting the meaning out of your life.
"Everyone is born with an aim of life. There is certainly a purpose of each birth. Numerology sole aim is to provide you a name according to your purpose of birth. Complete your life by completing your Karma, guided by your DOB and Name."
