Client Comments from
Around the World
Client comments come after these three quotes.
Vyasadeva tells us:
Yayati answered, "O pious one, they that speak of their own merits are doomed to suffer the hell called Bhauma [Earth]. Though really emaciated and lean, they appear to grow on Earth (in the shape of their sons and grandsons) only to become food for vultures, dogs, and jackals. Therefore, O king, this highly censurable and wicked vice [self-praise] should be repressed. I have now, O king, told thee all. Tell me what more I shall say." Mahabharata 1.90.4
And Sanatana Goswami states:
Describing one's own glories is disapproved by spiritual authorities. Sri Brhad Bhagavatamrta 2.1.108
And the common saying is:
sva-prashamsa dhruvo mrtyuh
Self-praise is as good as death.
Since the above is undoubtedly true I will let others do the talking. These are real comments from real people. I have clients on every inhabitable continent, these comments are representative of them. They come from every walk of life, literally from priests to prostitutes to Prime Ministers. Note English is not the first language of some of the writers. For reasons of privacy some persons only use their initials. Latest comments at the end.

I have derived great benefit and help from your readings and advice over the years and I hope to continue to do so. Astrology is a great science and I think you have mastered it.
Sriman Hari Sauri Prabhu
I got permanent residency after so many years of being illegal. The yajna you prescribed definitely worked. And I've also started practising my remedial measures again. Can you believe it? No more blackmail, no more being a prostitute. I finally have a future, and the opportunity to study and have a proper career. No more fear of being deported, or being in danger or at risk of abuse from anyone. Thanks so much.
It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with Shyamasundara over the past 15 years his readings have helped me navigate through life's constant obstacles whether its in business or family I highly recommend his services to all.
Nash (Naresh) K. Patel, Hotelier, past chairman of AAHOA – Asian American Hotel Owners Association (controlling 1 million hotel rooms in the USA)
Shyamasundara Prabhu's astrological analysis reflects his in depth years of study from several experts in India and I can easily see that he has a depth of expertise rarely found in ISKCON or non-ISKCON Eastern astrologers.
Urmila Devi Dasi
To whomever it may concern,
Two years ago I requested Shyamasundara Prabhu to make a Vedic horoscope for me - and I was surprised and delighted by his insightful work, which superseded my boldest expectations.
In my humble opinion a horoscope can be extremely helpful in understanding how our vehicle, that is body and mind, works. What influences are there? What talents are there? What weak points? What types of likelihood? etc.
A horoscope might be as useful as studying the instruction manuals of a car. Of course, by Krsna's mercy the new car can drive in unexpected and unforeseeable ways, but when one plans a route, one is happy when one knows what the car can do and what it cannot do.
I found out that in Shyamasundara's very sensitive reading of the astrological chart he leaves place and room for the "transcendental factor of Lord Krsna's mercy" and therefore - at least for me - it was very useful.
I wish him continued success and support in using his talents as a God-gifted astrologer and in this way please his preceptor Srila Prabhupada.
All the best
Your humble servant
The wide spectrum of readings amongst jyotish practitioners will vary from cosmetic comic strip predictions to pin point accuracies of the past and future. What separates the 'wheat from the chaff' in the market of available readings is the qualifications and experience of the 'jyotish doctor' in the field of study, training, familiarity with the Vedic resources, dedication, motivation and experience in practice. With respect to the above, I have found with Shyamasundara Dasa's reading a relief from the foggy weathermen of the past, providing an even embarrassingly correct appraisal of our situation and sound advice on how to shift gears on the future roads. According to the needs of the individual he has been able to provide relevant advice with respect to the spiritual or material.
From the tapes reviewing my lifetime chart, the indications of my father's military allegiance, personal conflicts with the mother, habits, previous health and tests gone through, came a foundation of faith towards the other descriptions of possible upcoming scenarios. The experimentation with the in-depth monthly readings brought to light 'to the day' an awareness of planetary influences, resulting in sudden fortunes and new contacts which have come to pass. Monthly even yearly period predictions are again confirmed by the experiences of productivity, creativity or just low energy. Of course, these affairs are only a forecast but also are a valuable tool on life's highway of approaching corners and hills, to know when to speed up or slow down. Such information for a spiritualist reveals how the path acts as a protective buffer from the bumps and banking curves, aiding concentration in the long term goal and for the materially motivated a better grip within the temporary. Either way it is nice to know that there is someone who can help provide a future of 'progressive preparation' as an alternative to the point blank punches of the present where 'hindsight' becomes your only trainer.
I just finished reading a brilliant piece of work written by you on the controversy about Srila Prabhupada's chart. … You are one of the very few astrologers I know of, though, who I have some faith in insofar as you are a devotee "through and through" and not only have you studied with great earnest, but have now had decades of experience. I have only heard positive feedback from people I know … I want to thank you for the insights you provided months ago. They have been extremely valuable for my introspection. Cleansing oneself and allowing the unwanted things to be "expelled" can also bring new revelations to light in life. … I must say that your words four years ago were painfully direct and clearly were right on the mark. I need someone I can trust to consult with occasionally that I have faith and confidence in regarding their inner eye and abilities to use jyotish along with it. … You were also correct about health problems. …
Howard Hamsa Beckman, Author, Gemologist, Vedic Astrologer
Dear Shyamasundara.... Sorry for delayed response. So far I have been listening to your tape #1 over and over. It is very useful; especially the part about … during Sun bhukti. Not easy for me, but it MUST be done as you say. I have very much enjoyed your readings, and in particular I feel very relaxed at the sound of your voice (as you have doubtless heard from others too). After hearing tape #1 over 6 times I am now ready to soak up tape #2. I thank you for excellent work which I find far superior to any readings I have previously received. Very practical & useful.

The AstroCartoGraphy reading you have done for me was totally spot on. It explained my life long fascination with certain places (some very remote). It explained why I felt so good and "right" in certain places and why I get along with people from certain places. It showed why I do not feel at ease in my birthplace. I thought this was due to past life connections yet I was not able to "pin point" this on a world map. Since I love to move and travel which, at this point in time it is not possible as much, your reading will come in handy in a few years from now. Your reading did show me that having moved to another country was exactly the right move because my life has improved significantly since. I enjoyed your explanations which are very good and humorous. Thank you Shyamasundara.
All Blessings to you,
Nicole van Ruiten. New Zealand
I received the reading and listened to it several times. It was very accurate, and I would like to talk with you about it.
Michael Constan, Florida ( a Western Astrologer who became a Vedic astrologer after this reading.)
We were both very happy to receive your reading of our marriage chart. My apprehension regarding the expected kuja-dosha was eradicated. Especially 'L' was relieved since, as you say in your reading, she tends to be quite attached to the husband and was fearing that the analysis would come out wrong.
Thank you very much for the Prasna. We are very amazed about the accuracy of your work. Your description of the music we are producing for instance is exactly the way you described. How we should be ready to relocate and have the vigor to present oneself, etc.
Gabi & Petra, Austria
This person wanted to know if his wife might be pregnant:
You were right about my wife, her menstruation came today, two nights ago she woke up in the middle of the night and had a bad stomach cramp, during the cramps she said that both her limbs were helplessly weak.
I just finish my reading of the chart. I want to thank you for the job that you did. It is very detailed and yet wide at the same time, on the main issues that I was interested. But, mainly I like the tactful way in which you present the points that are not positive in the chart. Thank you.
Dvaraka Dasa, Argentina
I have been a client of Shyamasundara Dasa for many years and have found his abilities to be outstanding to say the least. Time and time again his insight and predictive ability has proven effective for all sorts of important decisions in my life. Not only is he completely professional but his insight into the nature of Vedic astrology far exceeds anything I've come across. I highly recommend him for a reading. Anyone will be glad they did.
James Curtis, Casting Director, Los Angeles, USA
The accuracy of the reading overall was remarkable. Your characterization "fit me to a (psychological and spiritual) Tee!" Even my normally skeptical wife was awestruck. It is possible that she may soon be one of your next clients. As for me, I'm totally sold on the value of jyotish. The Lord has blessed you with a divine ability to un-encrypt His effulgent wisdom and intentions through the divining of His cosmos. May He continue to bless you in so many other ways.
Kenneth Rowe, New York
After having 2 unsatisfactory natal charts done by American astrologers, I had Shyamasundara Dasa do my chart. It was unbelievably accurate! It was as if he had been with me my entire life. He knew things about my life that only I could possibly know. I'm totally convinced he is the best astrologer in the western world! I would recommend him to anyone.
Vicky Moreland, Los Angeles, USA
Shyamasundara Prabhu, I am profoundly grateful for your services! Unlike other astrologers I have been to, who told me only what they thought I wanted to hear, you revealed the TRUTH with a depth of insight and accuracy that transcends mere book knowledge. Your reading has enabled me to achieve a deeper understanding of myself and my purpose in life, and to perceive the events which were arising in my life with greater clarity. The decisions I have made based upon your guidance have benefited me greatly! Thank you!
Dear Shyamasundara Prabhu, I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful chart you did for me recently. You did both spiritual as well as predictive readings and the result was amazing. You mentioned that when you know who you are, you experience real freedom, and the insight into my nature and tendencies both positive and negative has given me some genuine insight.
Also, your direct conversation and instruction as well as encouragement has lifted me up spiritually, and I'm now engaging in devotional service on a more serious level. It's obvious to me that you are an excellent astrologer, but also a caring God brother. Thank You Prabhu...Please continue this valuable service and may Krishna bless your efforts. Hari Bol!
Tirtharthi Dasa, Los Angeles, USA
Shyamasundara Prabhu, I offer my respectful obeisances unto you, again and again. I am simply astonished at the accuracy of your predictions. Everything you told me last year that is going to happen in my Guru-Ketu period came true. . . I am extremely satisfied with the quality and accuracy of your readings, and I listen to the tapes from time to time. It helps a lot to heed the advice of a brahminicaly [Vedic Priest] qualified astrologer. . . Hope I can meet you some day!
Srutimukha, New Zealand
I was glad that I could go to such a competent person in the field of Vedic astrology like Sriman Shyamasundara Prabhu for making a compatibility chart. I was astonished about the accuracy of his interpretation and I thank him for also giving me spiritual hints instead of material flattery. Also my future wife, who is not such a firm "believer" in the matters of astrology listened to his counseling tape more than one time. It is good to have the possibility to turn to Sriman Shyamasundara Prabhu in the matters of Vedic astrology, because people in general turn to an astrologer for help and they trust him and have faith in him in the same way as if they turn to their private doctors.
Antaranga Sakti, Finland
You were accurate, right down to the child in 1997 (which was a biological impossibility, but came with the territory when I married Jaya Hari). . . Anyway, I didn't get a chance to tell you that as far as I am concerned you are a venerable scholar of Jyotish. There is a difference between amateurs, even good ones, and professionals with the appropriate credentials. This is my life, my service; I'm not going to seek bargain advice from an amateur.
William G Wall, Ph.D. , Berkeley, USA
With a healthy dose of skepticism, I had Shyama complete a natal chart for me when we first met (1984). I found the information that he presented me was accurate and quite enlightening. He gave specifics about the past, present and future with such matter of fact confidence that I honestly thought that he did not have both feet firmly planted on the earth. Now that many years have passed since then, I can look back and see the value and truth of his observations. His proven veracity and understanding has prompted me to consult him on several matters.
Mary Pecen, Dallas, USA
You were right again! I am simply astonished and cannot believe it. You seem to be a really good astrologer and my faith in you is increasing and increasing... Sometimes people are asking me which astrologer they should contact for a reading (since they know that I know 'something' about Vedic astrology). Actually, you are the only one I can recommend and I am doing it. But for many in the ashrama it is too expensive. But I tell them that it is better to get a good reading done by you (even though more expensive than the readings of other astrologers), than going to a few not so qualified astrologers and then ending up paying the same amount but only getting readings according to the qualification of the astrologer. I did the same before I came to know about you and I can say that the other astrologer's readings cannot compare to your reading...
Nine years ago you did a taped reading for me. At that time I was in Germany and had big problems with my then wife. Later we split and I married again. Some of your predictions in this regard turned out to be so accurate that because of this I became very much interested in astrology myself. For the last 8 years I have been living in Bengal and astrology has become an important and integral part of my life. In spite of sincerely trying to understand the subject matter, I always had and still have many questions and often I wish I could go to someone who can give satisfactory answers but - it seems - that such people are hard to find even in India. It would be nice if I could ask you questions every now and then. Are you willing to share some of your knowledge and experience or perhaps you are too busy?
Ananta Rupa, India
I've received the tapes with your reading and also the payment bill, so everything is OK. I was surprised with the precision of your predictions in my past life. Especially I was surprised when you said me that I was just married one time before this marriage I'm going into. In fact, I was not married but I had a very deep relation with a woman who I have not forgotten yet, also in my dreams. It was a very important and transforming experience of my life. This relation broke down because of her betraying me with other men. This relation was 4 years long and very intense. This is the reason, I think, that in my horoscope come out another possible marriage. In fact also in my hand there are the signs of two marriages, is it possible the first marriage is to be considered this old and intense relation? Thank you very much for your helping, I was very satisfied with your reading.
I got my chart on Saturday. Thank you. I have listened to your tapes once and really appreciated the way you presented everything. Actually, I felt a little bit elated finding conformation of my unclear feelings that it is better for me to stay for now in Boston, and don't think about my marriage. Of course, I need to listen more and notify the points. I hope because of the marathon I am on I will be able to find time in figuring out what questions I would like to ask you. The best time for phoning me is Friday (its for free) around 8 PM. What do you think? So please send me a message. Again, thank you so much!
To whom it may concern,
I found Shyamasundara Dasa after doing an extensive search of Vedic Astrologers in Southern California and then on the Internet. He was one of the very few astrologers who had both a truly compassionate spiritual center and practice as well as extraordinary educationally references. I was particularly touched by Mr. Dasa’s personal commitment to the Vedic “World view.” I found him to be the “real deal.’’ I originally decided to have my Vedic Astrology chart read through experiences I had with mediations groups in Los Angeles California; I was looking for insight into myself and a more in-depth understanding of the spiritual nature of life. I was immensely satisfied with the in-depth and extensive information given in these two areas.
One aspect of my reading I was not prepared for that I however delighted in was the accuracy of the insights given, especially on the transit chart, but also on my natal chart. I use visualization and affirmations as part of my personal practice and was able to apply the astute observations presented in my natal chart to make immediate and effective changes in my practice which has led to very rewarding experiences. Mr. Dasa also gave direct recommendations to take in the upcoming year from my transit chart, and to my joy and success I took his advice, this alone was worth having my chart read. I also think it important to mention Mr. Dasa’s humility in presenting information. He was consistently sincere and warm while at the same time being direct and efficient.
Richard Hamilton, Los Angeles, USA
If I was to write a letter of recommendation for any outstanding employee who I worked with in an everyday working environment, it would have been in a way much easier than to say a few words on Shyamasundara Dasa's work. I find this hard because I definitely cannot, within this limited space of one letter, highlight all qualities of Shyamasundara Dasa and his work.
I am simply so fascinated that I don't know where to start.
Due to the curious nature of my mind, I tried various things in life. That is how I met several astrologers from different parts of the world. They all gave me a certain insight in my life, but I was never fully satisfied with their answers. A few years ago, I heard of Shyamasundara and his expertise, and wanted to contact him ever since. Somehow, I wasn't able to, up until few months ago. And this was one of those turning points in life for me. A turning point, because I realized that this is the time now, to change my life. And this would mean to actually move from just mere talking about the change to practical work on the change. I can proudly say my focus is much more clear now as to the direction of my life. Shyamasundara's reading is like a beacon that sets the course in the complicated sea of life. And a strong beacon too. I always tend to deeply analyze people, situations and people's actions. What struck me first when I approached Shyamasundara, was his professionalism. And this is something he displayed throughout the whole course of the reading, in e-mail communication, and every other type of contact you might make with him. No doubt that any professional would be satisfied with the quality of Shyamasundara Dasa's service. It is interesting to mention the nature of his job, since it is something that requires an enormous capacity to fold pieces of someone's life in a meaningful whole, within the limited frame of time. Then, add our human tendency to get everything we want or need as soon as possible to this, and you get almost impossible task. Nevertheless, Shyamasundara Dasa is so skilled and efficient that he is able to perform complicated Vedic Astrology readings in an extensive, yet timely manner. And this is not merely due to his education and experience in ancient Vedic Astrology, which he has over 20 years, but due to his unique personality too. I felt like a small child that listens to a wise teacher while listening to Shyamasundara's reading of my charts.
Shyamasundara is a wonderful guide that tells you about the good sides of your horoscope, and warns you about dangers on your path. I already knew that Vedic Astrology was a powerful thing, but Shyamasundara made me see a whole new dimension to it. I look on the reading that I received from him as one of the best investments I made in my life.
I am very excited about further cooperation with Shyamasundara Dasa, and this is something I would wholeheartedly recommend to everyone wanting to take the life in their hands.
Muhamed Durmic, Program Manager, NGO Sector, Bosnia and Herzegovina
As a person that practices spiritual life, who decided to walk on the path towards the God, Krsna, I learned who I am, where am I, and what is my role in this world. This knowledge I acquired from Holy Scriptures, such as Bhagavad Gita, from Spiritual Masters, and persons that practice spiritual life. I learned from those sources that we people are only passing through this world, and that our sojourn here has certain purpose. But, after hearing my horoscope reading made by Shyamasundara Dasa, only then I understood the depth of my existence and the secret of this world. We hear various things from various people in our life, with some of those we agree, and with others we don't. But the words of Shyamasundara Dasa carry the incredible power, which with its accuracy goes straight to the heart. There are only but few expert astrologers in the world who do this job from more then just material motives, and even less of them can be found in the western world. That is why Shyamasundara Dasa is a jewel in this field, an expert in Vedic Astrology, the original Astrology that is based on facts, unlike western Astrology that is based on vague concepts.
I have a tendency to be very undisciplined and stubborn at times, even when it comes to things like following physician's instructions, although I know I should be following them. It is for this reason, how I amazingly accepted Shyamasundara's directions and advices, and immediately started following them. This was a surprise to me. I doubt anyone could stay indifferent after hearing how his life would look like with such accuracy. This makes one realize that the life is not a game, and that we have no time to lose. Shyamasundara helped me realize that life is short, and there are so many things to do in it. Although I am a person that is hard to fascinate, I am fascinated. I expected a lot from this reading, but got way more then I expected. I had many problems in life, I still have them, but my horoscope, made by Shyamasundara Dasa helped me to look at the life positively, and to persevere. I got inspiration. My eyes are more opened now. What Shyamasundara did for me is invaluable. I understood that horoscope is a treasure that God left us to make our path more easier. Only God knows how much Shyamasundara helped me. Vedic horoscope is a jewel that everyone should present himself with. This horoscope by Shyamasundara is the best investement in life. You cannot feel my experience through my words, you can understand it only when you get your natal chart reading. This is only a part of what I acquired through this reading. I am shocked with realization of what all I can gain through horoscope. I didn't even dream about it. This is the experience you don't miss. And besides all this I got solutions for problems.
I am a person that wants much from life, although I am practicing spiritual life. This is one of the reasons I am very demanding. But, Shyamasundara Dasa was incredibly accurate, and described me from head to toes. He is a great guide that can satisfy even the most skeptical and demanding persons.

To Whom It May Concern:
I have used Shyamasundara's services for Prasna readings several times in the past several years. I have to say that the advice provided by his readings have saved me from getting involved in a number of situations which would have either cost me much emotionally and financially, or would have been total disasters.
At this time, I have just had my horoscope done by Shyamasundara Das, namely my Natal Chart reading, Predictive and Spiritual combined, plus a detailed Bhukti (update) reading. Shyamasundara provided me with a printed copy of the horoscope itself. This was accompanied by an MP3 file, that contained a recording of a 4 hour-long reading.
Shyamasundara’s readings, give me deep insight into my own self, enabling me to understand and to come to terms with who I am on the physical, psychological and spiritual levels. His readings also provide me with sensible guidance, as well as clarification of certain issues and feelings which I had always felt deep inside myself, but that had so far been ignored by not only myself, but also by other astrologers.
In a nutshell, I find Shyamasundara to be an excellent astrologer. He is not only well trained, and well educated in the science of Jyotish; he is also a perspicacious and highly articulate person. His readings are extremely helpful, and I recommend him without reservation.
Professor of English
Dear Shyamasundara Dasa,
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the many valuable insights contained in your reading. I've had so many readings both Vedic and western (on my natal chart) its hard to believe so much new and clarifying information was left to find. I am particularly thankful for your insights on my stellium and other bothersome aspects that had previously been so misinterpreted by others (myself included). Accurate predictive and interpretative abilities are truly a rare gift and I appreciate your help. Many thanks.
After long time Prabhu, I have to write you a letter. I don’t know if You remember me ( You prescribed me a remedial measure.)
After practicing those remedies as much I was able to, now I see very strong results which I feel by Lords mercy. Huge change occurred inside and outside me. I fell like I lost big burden from my chest, and I can function without fear. I am immeasurably thankful for Your mercy, and time to find solution for me. From my heart I wish to encourage you that your mission of helping people change their life is working, if I may say so bringing awareness of God in their lives. It is hard to explain how I feel, I realized something that I strive for almost 2 years, I change so much that I finally started to see Gods beauty and love, and mercy all around us, tears come to my eyes when I write this...
I don’t wont to take much more of your time, I just wanted to share my experience.
Receive my humble obeisance Prabhu,
Here is a letter from Canada regarding a marriage in danger of ending in the divorce courts:
My wife did not get along with my parents or siblings at all, and, if anything, would work to create problems with them! She would constantly create issues with them, swear at them, and behave completely like a spoiled teenager!!
Fortunately, I had consulted Shyamasundara Dasa, and through his recommended prayers, we have all finally found peace! It took about a month after the prayers were completed for things to improve, but now my wife gets along with everyone in my family once more. She has even apologized to everyone in my family for her behaviour! Now she is busy buying presents for everyone to show them that she truly means them no harm. Also, she wants my parents to move in with us now, and also wishes to help my sister pay for her wedding! This is in stark contrast to the behaviour of my wife before the prayers!
Thank-you for all your help Shyamasundara Dasa -- you were definitely worth the consultation!

Dear Vaisnavis, who make this site for helping Vaisnavas,please accept my humble obeisances.
I just want to mention a nice opportunity how to help devotees in distress searching for a cure. For several years I suffered from almost suicidal pains in my head and tried different doctors and therapies, ate many chemical pills but nothing helped. Then I tried to search for the cause through astrology and I found the website of Shyamasundara Prabhu, disciple of Srila Prabhupada (www.shyamasudaradasa.com). One of his services is finding remedies and he recommended me several things with the end result that those pains are gone. It worked.
I think other devotees should also learn about this alternative. Wishing you all success in devotional service.
Bhakta Martin, Czech Republic
This text didn't post to Vaisnava Care but instead was posted to Dandavats.com at the following URL http://www.dandavats.com/?p=2863
After seeing this text I inquired if Bhakta Martin was indeed cured and received this reply from the person he does email through:
"After long time in diseased condition his body is still weak, but he says that the disease is practically gone and he doesn't need to take any chemical medicine. He has performed two homas. Actually after some time he stopped chanting those [prescribed] mantras, but after reading your story [quoted above] about an Indian man living in Canada - his wife did not get along with his parents, Martin started to continue."
This last comment is very interesting and important. It shows that the remedies work if followed consistently with devotion otherwise no or only partial result accrue. It also suggests that a repeat of the remedy can speed up results.
The following comment is regarding AstroCartoGraphy.

Dear Shyamasundara Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I feel very moved by your reading of my chart. I listen to the tapes every day. You were able to extract the essence, the key words of my personality. As if you know me personally, all my life.
I never heard such intelligent, wise, spiritual (KC), detailed, meaningful & profound approach of reading. You selflessly used all the abilities to do it perfectly. Thank you so much for that!
Somehow or other I felt a little bit lost regarding direction in my life. But you gave me so many precious advices. I really needed that.
Sometimes even for a guru, probably in some cases, it is difficult to give a practical, individual direction in life, connected to someone's karmic (specific) case; but you gave it to me.
Now I need some time to absorb everything, because you made many points. You were so straightforward and I appreciate that. So, thank you so much once again.
Your humble servant,
Sundari Radhika dd
Dear Mr Shyama,
Re : Predictive Reading
I received the recordings and I have listened to them several times. I have also transcribed it onto paper because I feel it is so useful. There are so many things you mentioned about my past life, present life and character that are accurate .......... some of the things you said startled me because it is so true. I would love to tell you what it is but it would be too lengthy. I wonder in amazement how someone who is a few thousand kilometres away can know so much about me just by reading my astrological charts! I do not think many people can do that. I also really appreciate the fact that you always took the time to reply to my e-mails and questions busy as you are. I would certainly recommend your astrological services to anyone who wishes to learn more about their destiny. If any body would like a letter of reference please let me know.
When I first contacted you for a reading I was going through a very hellish time in my life. I was scared, confused and didn't really know which way to turn for help. Certainly some very strange things were happening and causing me a great deal of distress.
The remedial measure that you prescribed for me proved immediately effective and gave me something to focus on. All the negative psychic activity that had been troubling me ceased and some normality came back into my life. It took me a while to organize all the things but I managed it. I have continued to do the remedial measures to date with the result that there has been a tangible and consistent improvement in how I feel and what's been going on around me. I don't think I could have held out indefinitely if things had continued to go on as they had been.
Later, when I got the natal reading I was glad to hear you go into so much detail about what had happened, why and what was at the root of it. That was very helpful for me. Just knowing that I wasn't going crazy was really helpful.
Learning that I have the ability to go deeply into myself and am very sensitive to subtle things, along with the advice and guidance that you gave is giving me a chance to acknowledge these things and protect and steady myself.
I found the rest of the reading completely fascinating and I am sure I will listen to it many times over. The level of compassion that you have came through in the reading. You spoke like a friend and it was a very spiritual reading with lots for me to think about.
I would like to thank you for getting up so early, to do the reading (I could hear the birds start singing at dawn!) To me that shows your dedication to your clients and the Vedic science of Jyotish. Thank you for giving me access to it.
I can definitely see myself approaching you for further readings in the future and will recommend your services to others.

I began with Shyamasundara Dasa by having my natal chart read for Spiritual and Predictive Combined. The reading provided validation, logical explanations and direction, which helped ground many issues, revealed options for resolution and encouraged me to approach opportunities that are waiting to take flight. Shyamasundara’s comprehension in Vedic knowledge provided a strong foundation for advice and guidance through all the twists and turns in the chart. Of all directions he could have wandered during the reading he stayed on course according to my desire to investigate particular avenues throughout my life. Initially I was confident in him due to his qualifications, experience, presentation and simply that he is living according to the recommended principles conducive for a healthy spiritual and devotional life toward God, and now after hearing my reading and attentively listening to his explanations and studying how he confirms his reading with Vedic knowledge, I feel secure and look forward to delving further into my chart. He has proven himself a proficient and amiable guide on my journey of self-discovery.

To Whom It May Concern:
I spent many years looking for an astrologer that could help me make some sense of the chaos that is my life. I had heard of Vedic Astrology and actually worked with someone in the past who had helped me with a Muhurta. I had difficulty with understanding it, and therefore abandoned Vedic Astrology for Western Astrology.
I began to search again for someone to help me with my business problems and inquired about my old astrologer who did the Muhurta, he was gone, disappeared! I contacted someone else and she was moving to London and then as fate would have it, I got to Shyamasundara Dasa’s site. I was every impressed with the amount of information detailed in the website and I was equally impressed with the number of professional people that used the services for business problems.
I can honestly say that the information I received in my reading regarding my business (as my business is an extension of myself) was highly profound.
I took it to be both personal and professional. I listened to every word intensely in a four (4) hour reading. It was explained thoroughly and specifically and this is what I had not ever achieved in other readings before. Although I have just completed my reading, I feel now that I can handle what lies before me and make good decisions.

Dear Shyamasundara Prabhu,
I ordered a spiritual and predictive reading from you and what I got from you went beyond my expectations. Prior to ordering the reading I did a comprehensive research about yourself and I was most pleased with the fact that, you were a spiritual person by nature and you were following the principles stated in the scriptures such as leading a godly life, performing sadhana, meditation and connecting to the Higher Self. These were for me very important attributes, which provided me the confidence and belief that I was in the hands of the right person.
The thing I liked most about the actual reading was that it was an mp3 reading, and not just a basic computerized PDF or word file report. This to me was very important as it gave me a better insight about yourself and to the immense knowledge and wisdom you possessed. As I was hearing the reading, your voice was so wonderful and philosophical it felt like a student listening to a teacher who has got all the wisdom in the world and this was very inspiring. The spiritual reading was a real eye opener for my self. The manner and the depth you went into the reading was quite astounding. It has made me better understand myself, my strengths, my weaknesses and also the reasons as to why I am here.
The predictive reading, although just covering the tips of all the various periods, was very insightful too and the important areas of life were dealt with. You balanced the positives and negatives without any particular bias towards either, and provided spiritual guidance to me whenever you saw obstacles ahead. Furthermore all my questions were answered fully during the predictive reading which was really pleasing.
I understand that for the predictive readings its better to do a follow up in depth reading and hence I have already ordered an in depth reading in regards to my Moon mahadasha which is coming ahead, which I am sure will go into more detail.
In concluding, I am extremely grateful to God that I found you, Shyama and would like to thank you very much for truly inspiring me, especially when you gave various examples along the way about nature study to me (- one of them being- God has given you two ears and one mouth- meaning you have to listen more and speak less!). You have been very professional through out too in responding to my emails in a timely manner and I would definitely recommend Shyama to anyone. Thank you once again.

Shyamasundara prabhu is accurate in his predictions. Here are a few examples that I witnessed myself:
I asked him a prasna regarding whether or not I should ask my father to buy me an apartment in Paris, as my father had offered me before on numerous occasions. I was convinced that my father would say ‘yes.’ Therefore I asked the prasna with a view to know whether or not this would be a good financial investment, all the while taking it for granted that my father would say ‘yes’ if I asked him. Shyamasundara prabhu told me that I should not ask my father because if I did he would surely say ‘no.’ Not believing Shyamasundara, I asked my father nonetheless, and to my amazement he said ‘no.’
Regarding prasnas about possible marriage partners, I had several impressive experiences: One lady had showed interest in me for several months. I was never very much attracted to her, although I knew her to be a nice lady. I tried to associate with her for a few days, but I never really enjoyed being with her. Finally, I asked Shyamasundara prabhu the prashna, “Should I marry so-and-so,” and he replied in a manner which showed that he had understood the situation perfectly, although he knew absolutely nothing about the girl, not even her birth chart. He said, “She is a nice girl, she likes you, but you simply have no affection for her; it would be disastrous to marry her.”
Another time, I asked him if I should marry another lady who I had just met. Not knowing anything about her, he replied, “A person in her family will strongly object.” Sure enough, her father vehemently opposed our union.
Another time, he predicted that if I married a certain girl, I would constantly argue with her. Again, he was correct because she and I were already arguing in our preliminary exchange of letters.
Once, a certain lady from Eastern Europe showed interest in me. She seemed a bit emotionally imbalanced, however, but I figured it was worth asking Shyamasundara prabhu a prashna about her. Again, without knowing anything about her, he replied, “There is something definitely not right with this girl; stay away from her.”
Another time, I asked him if I should pursue marriage with a lady who had showed interest in me previously, but whom I had ignored because of the advice of another astrologer-friend of mine. I maintained attraction to her, and so I asked Shyamasundara about her. He replied, “This is a good match, but there is a major obstacle.” Sure enough, he could see, through his astrology, that this lady was unfortunately already compromised with another man at the time I asked the prashna. Thus Shyamasundara picked up the ‘major obstacle,’ namely the fact that she was already engaged with someone else, just from his reading.
Another time, I asked him a prasna about another girl, and he replied that there would be tremendous chemistry between the two of us, but that some major tension was there as well. Accurately enough, when I met this lady, a very strong physical attraction was present, and yet the mood between us was extremely tense.
Unfortunately, at the time I write this my marriage situation is not yet solved. My understanding, however, is that a good astrologer is not a miracle-worker- he does not change your karma. But he helps see clearly what your karma is, and what the reactions of a certain action would be, such as in the case of possible marriage union with one lady or another.
On the financial side, once a friend of mine from South Africa recommended that I invest in a certain South Africa petrochemical company. I asked Shyamasundara if I should buy stocks from that company. He replied, “Yes.” It has been 9 months since I purchased those stocks, and they have grown by 16 thousand dollars during that short time.

Dear Shyamasundara Prabhu,
The help and direction you gave me with your readings and remedial measures was truly amazing and I still thank the Supreme Personality of Godhead for letting me know such a great personality as your good self. I still wonder what I was going to do and how much more I was going to suffer without a proper direction if I haven’t met you. Your professionalism and growth in Jyotish astrology has certainly reached the perfectional stages and the fact that you are using it in the service of God makes a very elevated personality. I would definitely recommend you to anyone and everyone who needs help and guidance in their lives. In contrast with those astrologers, who are more or less on the amateur side and who somehow or other will harm you while trying to help you due to their insufficient knowledge and experience, you with your expertise and experience can be fully trusted for doing the job perfectly. Thank you for helping and guiding us through the dense darkness of material existence and may the Supreme Lord Krishna bless you for your wonderful service. Hare Krishna.
