I invite you to subscribe to my new Vedic Astrology content, where I will be regularly publishing informative texts about chart interpretation, remedies, and updates on a bi-weekly to monthly basis.

My name is Rafal Gendarz, I’m a graduate of Philosophy Studies (MA).

As a breakthrough moment, I recognize the year 1998, when I became interested in Indian philosophy and the practice of meditation, specifically Gaudiya Vaisnavism. Despite my practice of astrology using the tropical zodiac at the time, it sparked my interest in the Indian system of forecasting.

As my interest continued to grow, I met my future teacher, Visti Larsen, on an astrological forum in 2004. Since then, I have been a student of the Sri Jagannath Center tradition, where I have been taught about the interpretation of the natal chart, muhurta (electional astrology), prashna (horary astrology), and other important aspects of Indian astrology, also known as Jyotisa.

I have had the pleasure of participating in astrological conferences hosted by the Sri Jagannath Center in Serbia, where I gave a lecture on “Free Will and Shastyamsa”. In the same year, the astrological magazine Jyotish Digest published my article, which discussed the subject of “Raja Bhanga,” which forecasts the collapse of professional status.

In 2004 and 2006, I received mantras that assist astrologers in developing their knowledge and intuition, which are vital in the analysis of charts. I have graduated from all three main courses offered by our tradition: the Paraśara Hora Sastra and Mantra Shastra Program, conducted by Pandit Sanjay Rath, and the Jaimini Sutras Program by Pandit Visti Larsen.

The interpretation of astrological charts allows an astrologer to assist an individual, and it brings me a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. I regularly offer consultations via Skype or phone, utilizing my acquired knowledge.

Currently, I reside in Berlin, Germany, where I have the opportunity to share and transfer my knowledge of astrology by teaching others.


My teacher Visti Larsen belongs to the tradition Sri-Achyuta, who was one of the students (sakha) of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Sri Acyuta Das was blessed to know about the past, present and future events as a part of destiny (Jyotisa). Sri Acyuta was the youngest of the panca sakha and had the knowledge of Jyotisa that comes from Agni (the power to see/sight). Since he was the youngest, he was liked by his gurubhai very much and they taught him mantrashastra, bhakti bhava etc.


(Sanjay’s Grandfather) was a royal astrologer (Raja Jyotishi) who had learnt from his grandfather. Orissa, with its great Sun temple at Konarak, has been famous for its astrologers and always supported the Science of astrology. Jagannath Rath was given the title of a Jyotish Ratna in Orrisa.He lived a very austere life. He had a powerful personality that put many shaking around him.


(Sanjay’s Uncle) was the eldest born son. The tradition of Hora Shastra was passed through him. Sanjay’s father, U.K. Rath, learned advanced Ganita Shastra (science of astronomical mathmatics) and became an industrialist.

Kasinath Rath would hold traditional informal classes teaching Jyotisha. Sanjay spent much of his childhood learning from his uncle.


was born into this traditional family of astrologers from Bira Balabhadrapur Sasan village of Puri, Orissa. Sanjay studied under his under his uncle, late Pundit Kasinath Rath and his grandfather, late Pandit Jaganath Rath. Sanjay began his studies at 8 years of age, and received the depth of Jyotisha only found among those who have been trained in the ancient traditional way of the parampara. He worked for some time in government service in India. Leaving government service to devote himself completely to Jyotisha, he has the depth of the ancient knowledge with the ability to communicate it to the modern mind.

To promote the teachings of his parampara he has formed the Sri Jagannath Center where his advanced students are helping to spread Jyotisha in a way that keeps its spiritual roots. Students learn not only about Jyotisha, but also mantra shastra, mudra, pranayama, meditation, and the Sanatana Dharma.


during His visit’s to India took learnings from Sanjay Rath. He was recognized as very able and sincere student by His Guru. He is teaching Jyotish rooted in spiritual background along with mantra-sastra and puranic histories. Author of “Jyotish Fundamentals” and many articles which were presented on conferences worldwide. He stays at Denmark and teaches Jyotish under Jaimini-project.
