Visti Larsen

Visti Larsen began studying Western Astrology in his spare time during his secondary education, a journey he began upon hearing the mention of the word ‘Ascendant’. He has been studying Astrology since an early age, beginning with Western Tropical Astrology and since migrating to Vedic Astrology or Jyotish. During his higher studies Visti came under the tutelage of Pt. Sanjay Rath, belonging to the tradition of Shri Achyutananda Dasa.
Setting his higher studies aside temporarily, he travelled to attend and present papers at several conferences and workshops across the USA, UK, Serbia and India. Studying solely through the Shri Jagannath Center, Visti was among the youngest selected to be a teacher by his Jyotish Guru and has spent considerable time at Jagannath Puri, Odisha as well as New Delhi learning personally with his guru. Completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Linguistics, he has since dedicated all his time to teaching and practising Jyotish. Under this tutelage, he has since earned the title of Jaimini Scholar after completing the five-year Jaimini Scholar program. Following his completion of the program, his proficiency and dedication to the program entitled him to be the caretaker of the Maharishi Jaimini Krtam Upadesha Sūtra and the head of the Jaimini Scholar Program.
Being taught in the ancient ways of the Parampara, he besides Jyotish has been educated in several aspects of ancient Vedic knowledge, comprising topics of philosophy, Mantra Shastra, Sanskrit, Upasana and allied fields. The ancient texts that he learned, and relies on, are that of Gita, Upanishad, Purana and Veda.
Attempting to imitate his Guru’s every word and gesture, his understanding, academic and systematic approach to the topic has earned him much appreciation within the Jyotish spectrum. He, like his teacher, is a strict follower of the ancient teachings and a promoter of Sanatan Dharma, encouraging vegetarianism, a spiritual and holistic lifestyle. Having a background in other religious philosophies, he enjoys bridging the gaps between different schools of thought, and understanding the truths that unite all religious philosophies.
His teaching style is clear, thorough and systematic. Having a passion for teaching, his dedication for the topic becomes evident as he creates the building blocks for his students to climb. His students are located in several different countries, comprising mainly the continents of Europe, the Americas and South-east Asia, whilst his clientele represents almost all corners of the globe. Besides his efforts within the Jaimini Scholar Program, he runs RAMA, the Regional Academy for Mantra and Astrology wherein he holds courses and monthly webinars on various topics of Jyotish.
Presently he is active with performing Jyotish consultations, translating and decoding ancient Jyotish scripture for publication.

Vanita Lenka

anita Lenka was born and brought up in New Delhi, India and is a globetrotter, She currently lives in Muscat, Oman

She developed her interest in Vedic Astrology when she was just 10 years old when her grandmother used to tell her the mythological tales and used to narrate about the Purnima(Full Moon)and Amawasya(New Moon), the waxing and the waning Moon concept, which intrigued her to know more about this side of the world..

Genuine astrology is learned and takes years to master. Astrology is never clairvoyant, psychic, supernatural, intuitive, magical or inborn. Vanita imparts her planetary wisdom at every turn. She wants to help people, not scare them, she’s here to help you through the tough times and pointing out astrological opportunities. She understands the human condition.

She has performed over 5000 in-depth personal readings and is proficient in most branches of Classical Vedic Astrology that includes- Vocation(Vocational Astrology is unique in it’s ability to see the whole picture of talent, happiness, success and timing), Location, Medical, Natal, Transit-Progressed, Spiritual, Comparative Analysis, Electional (selecting dates for important life events); Gem Selection; Fertility Dating and Horary Astrology (the art of answering special questions from exact times). Her consulting experience is vast (completing almost 3 decades), having read for men and women of most nations, ages and professions.

She loves to dress up and wants to convey everyone the message that an Astrologer is not just supposed to be wearing saffron clothes and has to be wearing a Rudrakhsa Mala with a sandalwood Tilak on the forehead to get the label of being an Astrologer. An Astrologer should be well versed of the subject and above all be a good counselor as well, a friend and an approachable identity who is here to help in today’s busy world, where we need someone to hear us out and forewarn us of the tough and rough times ahead.

She has gained the respect of her fellow astrologers for her excellent astrology readings. Her readings are close to accuracy as far as family, health, career, love, relationships and lot more, She has had some real great interactive sessions with clients all across the globe and suggests practical upaye(remedies) to counter the adverse impacts of the planets. She also consults with companies large and small to counsel on the intersections of astrology and business acumen.

David Newman Newman

David Newman’s greatest gift is his willingness to listen to his inner voice and open his heart to be of service to others. David guides and inspires fellow travelers on their paths, through his uplifting music and the valuable insights that he shares through his writings and teachings.

David’s life took a dramatic change in direction when after graduating law school in 1992, he decided to open a yoga center in his hometown of Philadelphia. The center, Yoga on Main, was one of the first of its kind, and created a new awareness of Yoga in his community. Shortly thereafter, David, a lifelong musician, discovered an ancient form of healing chant music known as kirtan and began to apply his musical gifts to this powerful practice and to share it with others.

As a result of his immersion into Kirtan coupled with his long history as a songwriter, David began a new journey and in early 2003, recorded his first album entitled Soul Freedom. Two years later, a second CD followed. The album Lotus Feet received critical acclaim and was featured on NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’.
David’s music spread rapidly within the worldwide conscious community and caught the attention of yoga enthusiast Terry McBride, who also happened to be the founder of Nettwerk Records, Canada’s largest record label and home to such artists as Sarah Mclachlan, Barenaked Ladies and Passenger. David signed with Nettwerk in 2008.

Since then David has gone on to release numerous recordings including the #1 iTunes world music release, Love is Awake, a collaboration between David and members of Paul Simon’s band. David continues to make music and tour throughout the world, and is acknowledged for bridging the gap between contemporary western music and meditative mantras. He has been an integral part of the spiritual or yogic music movement and is a frequent headliner in many yoga and music festivals and conferences that take place around the globe.

In addition to his heart opening music, David has touched and inspired others through his teachings on loving unconditionally, both as a way of life and as a means toward spiritual awakening. David shared his own personal story of awakening in his #1 Amazon best-selling book, The Timebound Traveler, released in 2014.

David also devotes himself to charitable and humanitarian causes. He launched The Stay Strong Project in 2011 in which he released two singles and videos featuring luminaries from the yoga and music community in partnership with Global Green USA, offering 100% of the proceeds to support such environmental causes as the Gulf oil spill cleanup of 2010, and the building of green schools. David donated a portion of the proceeds from his song "Love Belongs to Everyone", from his album Stars, to the human rights organization, Witness, founded by Peter Gabriel.
In 2015 he composed, recorded and released Song for Nepal to support the Seva Foundation’s Nepal Earthquake relief and rehabilitation fund. David organized a benefit concert for the Standing Rock Dakota Pipeline resistance movement, and has partnered with Call and Response Foundation for the "Love and Mantra Outreach Tour" bringing mantras and healing music to addiction recovery facilities, psychiatric centers, nursing homes, institutions for autistic children, and for homeless women and their children.

David’s strongest desire is to bring joy to others through his music, teachings and personal connections. He continues to express his passion and inspiration in creative and groundbreaking ways, and sees his life’s work simply as ‘spreading the love.’
