Born on 8 - June, 1967 in an
illustrious Brahmin family, revered Dr. Shyam Sunder Parashar "Shastri ji" is
like divine light emanating from the altar of Sage Galav who is known to have
done penance and tapas long long ago in the precincts of Gwalior the birth place
of Shastriji. His village Bhitarwar, 72 kms. from Gwalior city is adorned and
blessed by the Holy river Parvati.
He portrays a natural flair for a life devoted to the study and practice of Vedas, Shastras, and Puranas whose, slokas he transcribes through meliphagous symphony of his ragas and raginis. Having inherited a rich intellect from his grandfather Shri Jeevanlalji Parashar, a great scholar of Astrology and occult sciences and nobility and social wisdom of his father Shri Pandit Bhagwan Lalji and mother Smt. Vimla Deviji, Shastriji epitomizes these virtues.
