About Kerry Shamblin
Thank you for visiting this site. My purpose here is to share knowledge that inspires me and ideas that I have generated while practicing and studying Vedic astrology, which is my passion. I became interested in Astrology in the mid-1990's, and began my explorations through Western astrology, as that resource was readily available. I soon turned to the Vedic view, and have been studying Jyotish (Vedic astrology, literally "the science of light") since 1997. At this point, I imagine that the study and practice of Jyotish will be a lifelong pursuit.
I am a professional member of the Council of Vedic Astrology and currently pursuing Jyotish Visharada certification.
I was first introduced to Hindu/Vedic culture when I was twenty years old. After deciding that one year of college was enough for me, I found myself working for a Nepali family in Boulder, CO. Soon, I was traveling back and forth between Nepal and Colorado, helping with the family business, and spending time in the village, living with the elderly parents and teaching at the local school that the family had started. After three months of staying in Nepal, I had learned to speak the language and was absorbing the culture like a sponge. I also did some traveling in India, which was one of the most vivid experiences of my life so far.
Since 1992, I have considered myself a student of Vedic Wisdom. I enjoy spending my time learning about the various branches of ancient knowledge that have been kept alive on the Indian Subcontinent and attempting to translate what I learn into useful applications for living a balanced life in the modern age. I especially love how all of the different branches of Vedic knowledge, such as Jyotish, Ayurveda, Vedanta, and Yoga support one another and together form a comprehensive system of understanding our existence and living a balanced life.
