Learn more about Vedic Astrology.

Pravinji is a Pandit and performs various rituals. He has been awarded the degree of Jyotish Kovid in Vedic Astrology. A native of Bombay, India, Pandit Pravinji has been practicing the path of Vedic astrology in India and America for 35 years. He learned this sacred science by divine grace and has received blessings from well known Vedic astrologers and saints. Pravinji has written articles on Vedic astrology and spirituality, and has taught classes at the International Symposium on Vedic Astrology.

In Vedic astrology, the horoscope represents the karmic map. The astrologer must be very sensitive and intuitive in interpreting it, and discreet and graceful in communicating about the areas of concern. To this end, Pravinji performs regular spiritual practices to receive“divine light” through meditation.

Pravinji has done much to educate Americans about Ayurveda, the Indian science of healthful living and longevity. Pravinji utilizes his deep knowledge of the sister sciences of Jyotish and Ayurveda to prescribe mantras, gems, herbs, lifestyle, dietary and spiritual practices to help minimize the negative influences of planets and planetary transits.

Pravinji also performs and explains the inner meanings of various Vedic rituals upon special request. For those interested in deep study of Vedic ceremony and ritual Pravinji teaches agnihotra (fire ceremony for purification).
