Individual tutorship in Jyotish

Our system of teachings:
We have developed a system of distant learning for Jyotish, to satisfy different types of students and interests, from a beginner level for those who want to learn the basics to the advanced level or to the one that wants to study and practice it professionally. That’s why the course is divided in several “modules”, of several lessons each.
It’s not just a correspondence or online course, but it is a tutorship system and personal individual follow up teacher-student relation. The idea is to keep the traditional way of teaching by direct transmission teacher-student, while at the same time taking advantage of the internet technology and email to be able to do it from a distance.
Lessons will be sent one at the time with material to study and exercises to do as homework. The student first reads and studies the topic and can communicate with the teacher at any moment through email to make questions or to clarify any topic of the lesson if needed. Then, the student does the homework and sends it to the teacher who will review, correct it and evaluate if the student understood and assimilated enough the lesson, when this happens next lesson is sent.
The first module consists of 10 lessons.
At the end of each module the student can optionally take an online exam and, if he passes, gets a certificate as having taken and understood that module. See costs and requisites of the exam.
The amount of tutorial hours also is certified. Each lesson can get up to 10 hours with the homework done, being able to accumulate up to 100 hours in module one, depending on the homework and how the student shows dedication and study.

Professional certification in Jyotish
For those that want to continue studying, after 600 hours of tutorship (you get them through the different modules taken, plus the homework assigned by the teacher) and after passing a final exam (see requisites) the student get the title “Jyotish Vid” (Knower of Jyotish) issued by us and a certificate that shows that the student now can work as an astrologer, doing consultations and charts readings.

CVA certification
Krishna’s courses and tutorial hours are also accepted by CVA (Council of Vedic Astrology) in the United States, which enables you to take their exam and get their certification of this internationally renowned professional organization. See CVA link: for more info.
