About the Author

K.N. Rao (Kotamraju Narayana Rao) retired from the Indian Audit and Accounts Service as Director General in November 1990. He is the second of the four sons of the famous journalist of the pre-independence era, K. Rama Rao, the founder editor of the National Herald and, editor of more than thirty journals in his long journalistic career. Rao was initiated into astrology by his late mother, K.Saraswani Devi, at the age of twelve in 1943. He regards her as the best astrologer he has known in two areas, marriage and children and prashna (horary).

Rao was a lecturer in English before joining the government service through an all-India competition in 1957. He joined the Indian Audit and Accounts Service from which he retired as Director : General in November 1990. More interested in games and sports . than in astrology in his youth, Rao won brilliancy prizes in chess competitions and two state championships in bridge competitions. he played ten other games which is why in his astrological writings also there are references to games often.

During his service career, he was the planner, organizer and teacher of three international courses on Audit of Receipts as a joint director once and director twice. His interactions with foreigners have been both on professional and astrological levels for more than two decades which is why he has, as an astrologer, a large International network of friends. He went on doing all his fundamental researches in astrology during his service career because of which he went on collecting horoscopes systematically in 1 thousands. He has in his possession more than 50,000 horoscopes with ten important events of each individual noted with him. It is 1 perhaps, the largest individual collection of horoscopes any astrologer 1 In the world has.

1 1 The strain of doing astrology as a mission, not charging any 1 tee, except on foreign tours almost made him give up astrology ..1 many times. But in December 198 t he was forced out of his shell to partldpate in a three-day seminar on astrology in Delhi. After this ground breaking speech, there has been a persistent demand for his astrological articles. From them onwards he has been sharing with his readers his original researches for which he has wonworldwide praise.

Between t 993 and 1995, Rao has visited the USA on five lecture tours. He was the Chief Guest at the Second Conference the American Council of Vedic Astrology in t 993. He was request to be present in the Third Conference also in 1994 on the opening day because of the crowds he would draw. His name was advertlse till November t 995 also for the Fourth Conference though he had made it clear that he would not be available anymore for the America"conferences.

In June t 998 he went to Moscow where he taught astrology through interpreters. It was a great success as reported by the Russia;sponsors part of those reported is produced here.

As a result of his academic approach, he has now more than a thousand students in India and more than two hundred in the USA He is the Director of Astrology Courses in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawaa New Delhi. The teachers on the teaching faculty of the astrology course in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan have, like him, never charged any fees for teaching which they do in an honorary capacity. Whatimpelled Rao to do it is well explained in his own horoscope whele the lagna and the 10th lords get combined in the lagna, with an exalted Jupiter in the 10th house. All this was foreseen by his Jyotis!' Guru, Yogi Bhaskarananda of Gujarat whom Rao describes as the lasl of the Rishi astrologers in the purest classical mould. He had told him that he would have to visit many foreign countries to give to Hindu astrology the honour, recognition and dignity which it did not have till then.An American summed up the impact of the first ever foreign visit of Rao to the USA in t 993 as,Vedic astrology before Reo and after Reo".

What different yogis have said about astrology as a Vedanga which he must not give up has been quoted in his book, Yogis, Destiny and the Wheel of time. Astrology is ill-reputed as a profession because of its mercenary and exploitative nature. Rao's desire never to turn into a professional astrologer, has won him thousands of admirers and also some enemies from the community of professlons astrologers who felt threatened, when around him there grew up a fine team of more than two hundred academic astrologers like him, for whom astrology is not a source of living, but a super science to delve into the meaning and purpose of human life, which is what astrology, as Vedanga, should and has to be.

Both his mantra guru, Swami Paramananda Saraswati, and his jyotish guru, Yogi Bhaskarananda taught him some secrets of spiritual astrology which are not given usually in any book of astrology. Rao has revealed some of these secrets in his book, Yogis, Destiny and on the Wheel of TIme. Among Rae's recent fundamental and most original researches are his two books Predicting through jaimini's Chara Dasha and Predicting through Karakamsha and Mandook Dasha. lverf It has been possible for him to produce such researches because he was told by his jyotish guru that what was in parampara (tradition), was much more than what was contained in books of astrology which are translated literally and are without illustrations generally. His own mother, who was his first jyotish guru, knew many such traditional secrets, parts of which Rao has revealed in his three book Ups and Downs in Careers, Astrology; Destiny and the Wheel of tIme and Planets and Children.

It was the mantra guru of Rao, Swami Paramananda Saraswati , who first asked Rao not to give up astrology as it had to be an Integral part of his sadhana. Later a great yogi, Swami Moorkhanandji, prophesied in t 982 that he would be the architect of a great astrological renaissance. Whether that is already fulfilled or not can be gauged from the impressive list of his research published in his writings given here in a tabular form.
