I (Dr. K. Ramakrishnan) have set up this AstroAsha astrology website with the vision of helping people all over the world through the divine science of Indian Vedic Astrology or Jyotish Shastra.
I was born and brought up in a traditional Tamil Iyer family. I am a qualified Jyotish Acharya, having undergone the rigorous two-year classroom course at the prestigious, world-renowned Institute of Astrology, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (BVB), New Delhi, India, which was established in the 1980s by our revered guruji, the internationally acclaimed jyotishi Sri. K. N. Rao. I was awarded the gold medal twice, for having secured the first rank with distinction in both the Jyotish Alankar and Jyotish Acharya examinations of the Institute. I have also been constantly developing my capabilities as a vedic astrologer by pursuing research into the Shastras and their significance in our modern context.
My formal education consists of scholarship at India’s premier institutes of higher learning leading to a Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) from the College of Engineering, Guindy, Madras, M.B.A. from the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA), and a PhD in Management from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta. At the age of 45, I resigned from a secure, stable central government job in India with a premier national-level academic institution to dedicate my life to the full-time practice of and research into vedic astrology and our Shastras. I am determined to devote the rest of my life to creating and leaving behind, from our ancient Indian heritage, something of value to future generations. In my professional career of over twenty years, I have worked in the corporate sector and in academics where I have been employed as a Professor at leading institutions such as Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow, Management Development Institute (MDI) Gurgaon, and National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) Mumbai.
I have been practicing jyotish since the decade of the 1990s. I have a scientific and research-oriented background and training. My aim is to provide astrological counselling, based on a thorough study of the kundali, that is reliable, robust and accurate. It is important to bear in mind that no amount of knowledge and intellect can guarantee astrological predictive powers unless it is constructed on a strong foundation of spirituality, honesty and ethics. The counsellor is merely an instrument to convey the appropriate guidance to the querist as ordained by the Almighty.
