He is by all means - true jyotish guru, brilliant teacher and excellent master. I would recommend him highly both as a teacher and as jyotish consultant."
~~ Vladimir Astashkin"I am a deep believer in the wisdom of Paramahamsa Yogananda that Astrology is the study of man’s response to planetary stimuli and is very predictable. Reading astrological charts should be as objective as reading natural human phenomenon. It takes skillful and precise reading of astrological natal chart, which must be accurately drawn, to see the unfoldment of past karma through passing times. Nandakishore Mahapatra is among the few professionals with long years of experience in reading charts for people from different cultures, Indian and foreign alike. I have consulted him over and over, and benefited every time."
