Dr. Ekkirala Krishnamacharya (Master E.K.), born on 11 August 1926 in Bapatla (India), was a university lecturer for Vedic and oriental literature at the Andhra University in Visakhapatnam. Besides this activity, he founded numerous spiritual centres in India and Western Europe as well as schools and more than 100 homoeopathic dispensaries in India, where the sick are treated for free.
In his 24th year Master CVV appeared to him while meditating. This opened the Path in his life. He identified himself with the work of world goodwill and the Planetary Hierarchy in 1953. He was linked up with the Hierarchy of the Masters of Wisdom in 1958. The magnum opus “Spiritual Astrology“ was given out by him in 1965. In 1971 he founded The World Teacher Trust for the spiritual fusion of East and West and he travelled extensively all over the globe spreading the message of Eternal Wisdom and Universal Love. His main work was to sow the seeds of the Aquarian Energy, which was received by Master CVV, who transmitted the energy around the etheric plane of the globe to enable faster individual transformations and the consequent growth.
He authored many books in English and in Telugu. His writings cover wide ranging topics of Veda, yoga, astrology, homoeopathy, ancient wisdom, spiritual practice, modern novels, drama, poetry, among others. He had a deep insight into esoteric astrology as well as mundane astrology. At periodical intervals he conducted classes on astrology explaining in detail the correspondence of man and the cosmos.
