Early Life[edit]

He pursued his primary education from Adarsh Shiksha Mandir in Bhaidaini, Varanasi. Later, he did his 10th and 12th from the Central Hindu School, Kamachcha, Varanasi. He met Dr Kamalkant Pandey, double gold medallist professor of Astrology in Ranveer Sanskrit Vidyalaya run by BHU. Rai was recommended to start learning Panchang and few books by Dr Kamalkant Pandey. He enrolled at Banaras Hindu University to earn his bachelor’s degree in political sciences, but spent much of his time in reading numerous books on Astrology in central library. To get access on multiple books at a time, he used to borrow library cards from his friends. In order to return books on time, he started reading one book per day. And in doing, so he had read more than 2000 books. At times, he used to visit Goyanka Library of the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, just to get access on more books. He had learnt Astrology under the mentorship of Dr Kamalkant Pandey. His spiritual guru was Swami Sadanand Shastri who happened to be his family guru as well. He got exposure of some tantra Vidya also from Late Pandit Awadhesh Jha whom he met in reference of his maternal uncle. Although he had done few tantra Sadhana, but he does not promote it to his client. After BHU, he began studying for a master’s degree but by that time he got so much deeply involved in Astrology that he decided to pursue it as his full time career.

After practicing Astrology for 7 years in Varanasi, he moved to Mumbai where he learnt Vastu Shastra under able mentorship of his maternal uncle Shri Ashok Sharma. There he read more than 800 books on Vastu Shastra in order to get in depth knowledge. He always believed that as a professional consultant he must be aware of even minute details of both the Shastras same as any other professionals like doctors, ca, lawyers, etc know about their respective fields.


Although he began his career professionally in 2000 but started his consultancy practice since 1993 on free basis. Early in his career, he was only into Astrology but after moving to Mumbai later, Vastu Shastra also grabbed his attention. He had also helped few exceptionally well settled Astrology consultants in their work, so as to get more exposure and hands on experience. He had learnt many professional aspects from his maternal uncle, Shri Ashok Sharma, who happens to be a well recognized consultant in Astrology as well as Vastu both, in Mumbai.

After working for 10 years in Mumbai from 2007 to 2017, Rai decided to come back to his hometown, Varanasi - a holy city on the banks of river Ganga. Since then he is serving people from his office in Varanasi. But this has not restricted him to serve people outside Varanasi. On the contrary, he’s always ready to help clients across the globe by guiding them online, and if required, then by visiting them at their places. He firmly believes that by serving clients, he is helping them to get a peaceful life with best possible resources and guidance.
