Philosophy

Vedic Astrology doesn't exist in a vacuum it is a science that is practiced by those who follow Lord Krsna's Vedic culture. Hence, to fully comprehend Vedic astrology one has to be familiar with the philosophy and world view of the Vedic civilization.

While we do offer services on this site it is primarily educational. Any money that we make from our services go toward continued study and publishing of well-researched articles that set a high standard in the jyotish community. As a brahmana my primary vocation is to study and share my knowledge with others. In traditional Vedic culture the general public and especially those who benefit directly from that knowledge help to support the teacher so that he can spend more time in deep study and continue the cycle. If your knowledge has been expanded and you are inspired by the Lord in your heart please donate an amount that you are comfortable giving.
