About the author:
Born in Bay Shore, New York on July 27th, 1970 at 19:38, Vic DiCara was fascinated with astronomy as a young child. He became a hardcore-punk guitarist and songwriter in his late teens, and soon thereafter became deeply involved in the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, living for roughly 8 years in temples - studying elaborately and embarking on months of extended pilgrimages to the holy places of India. He was initiated into the Gaudiya-sampradaya and received the name Vraja Kishor das, along with the brahminical thread as a symbol of his dedication to study. He studied sacred Sanskrit texts extensively under his guru, wrote prolifically to a large international audience, and was the founding headmaster of the first branch of the Vrindavana Institute for Higher Education in the Western world. At 28 he married and was blessed with a beautiful family. He began practicing astrology about a decade later and, thanks to his thorough spiritual background and familiarity with Sanskrit, quickly became recognized as an important exponent of the ancient science.
He currently lives in Japan, where he practices bhakti-yoga, gives astrological readings, and translates sacred bhakti texts into English. He and can be reached through his websites, VicDicara.com (for astrology) and VrajaKishor.com (for bhakti).
