In 1991, under the auspices of the Hindu teacher Avadhuta Shastri, he was named Vamadeva Shastri. Vamadeva was one of the first Americans to receive Jyotish Kovid title from the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences (ICAS, 1993), the largest Vedic astrology association in the world.

He sees Vedic wisdom as a tool for liberation of the spirit, not as a dogma to bind people or to take power over them.
