Apart from an attractive aura and a red tilak on his forehead, there is little about Pt Promod Nandkishor Sharma's external appearance that would make one think that behind this serene, sophisticated exterior lies a mind which has the power to assess you, without you even having to speak. A man with a scientific background, having secured qualifications in both electrical engineering and aeronautics technology as well as a diploma in business management, apart from a master’s degree in Hindi, Pandit ji's approach to the subject of Vedic astrology is like that of a professor.
Born in a family of doctors in one of the oldest living cities in the world, Benaras in India, Banditti’s motto is to provide hope and attitudinal corrections to the ones seeking answers in life. He believes that India’s ancient knowledge can be harnessed to build positively in oneself and in one's life.
Early in life, at the age of 16, as a vocation, the Indian Air Force selected Sharmaji. During his tenure, even in this regimented life, he found time to dabble in Vedic astrology. The basis of this was his intuitive ability, for intuition is one of the fundamental elements of Vedic Astrology. And Pandit ji realised early that he was blessed with this power.
Once, while serving in the Forces, some colleagues approached him with a photograph and asked to predict that individual's life. Due to his highly evolved intuition, Pandit ji felt there was something amiss, so he said, "Why do you people joke with me?" His colleague asked him, "Why, what is wrong? We have brought this photo, so why can't you predict?" At this remark, Pandit ji said, "How can I, when the person (whose photograph you have brought) is no more." His colleagues became stunned when they later discovered that photo presented by them was indeed that of a person who wasn't alive anymore.
In fact, it was this intuitive self who helped him steer towards his chosen life goal later on. He realised that there was a growing spiritual quest within him and that he needed to devote all his energies and time in the practice of Vedic Astrology. It is said that even one’s entire lifetime isn't enough to unfurl all the secrets of this ancient cosmic science.
After fifteen years of service, he retired from the Air Force and settled down in the once quiet, but now bustling city of Pune, about 160 kilometers SE of Mumbai.
His interest became his full-time occupation and he has been studying the various texts of Vedic Astrology and practicing this science since 1980. However, to this day, despite reaching high levels of acclaim and accuracy for his predictions, he is still down to earth and humble. He is still open to learning and would call himself a student of Vedic Astrology rather than a master, for he believes that the time when one begins to think that one knows everything, is the end of all learning.
Being a keen student, Pandit ji also took up a course in Gemology, offered by the Deccan Education Society (of Ferguson College) in Pune. Gems or semi-precious stones are an integral part of Vedic Astrology and are used just as medicines, to fight ailments. It is believed that each stone emits rays, which can be harnessed to solve or control an individual's ailment. This was precisely the reason why Pandit ji took up this subject, so as to enhance his knowledge and help those who came to him by suggesting remedies in the form of diet control, fasting, prescription of gems and/or chanting of mantras
While we share this journey of life, we can understand, through Pandit ji's vast experience, what lies in store for us and how we can best make use of this gift of LIFE?
