Robert Koch is a professional Vedic astrologer with 29 years experience, and has earned an international reputation as a lecturer, author, and teacher of Jyotish (Vedic Astrology). In his work, he draws upon the experience gained from serving 20 years as a Hindu-Vaishnava monk in the USA, Canada and India. His spiritual teacher and guru, the late Sri Srimad A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, is revered as one of the most prolific teachers of Vedic thought in the modern age.
In the late 1970′s Robert traveled to India numerous times, where he learned Vedic scriptures and astrology, gaining first-hand experience of the culture founded upon their principles. In 1987 he left the monastic life and began his full-time professional practice of Vedic astrology. Robert wanted to bridge the gap between the ancient Sanskrit Vedas and Vedic culture, and the scientific intellectual culture of the west. His mission therefore developed into a practical vehicle through which the Vedic teachings could be more easily understood and implemented by the western mind.
