While The Travelerís Well is focused on the journey of the soul as
perceived through the lens of astrology, it was founded on the
principles of yoga philosophy as taught to me by my Gurudev, Swami Rama
of the Himalayas and Swami Veda Bharati, his disciple and my direct
teacher. As you explore the quotes from these two wonderful souls,
you will see how their insights form the foundation of The Travelerís
When successful, my work is a reflection of their
love and wisdom.
