About the Name and the Logo
Maitreya is the ardent disciple of Maharishi Parasara, the author of Hora Shastra, the supreme standard text of Vedic astrology.

The logo of Maitreya contains the pictures of two famous astrologers: Alfred Witte and Sri Yukteswar Giri.

Alfred Witte is the founder of Uranian astrology, also known as german Hamburger Schule (Hamburg School). Uranian astrology gives surprisingly accurate predictions.

Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri is known as a supreme Vedic astrologer. He incarnates the union of divine wisdom and astrological knowledge. His disciple Paramahansa Yogananda became famous in the West.

The Sanskrit sloka is taken from Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra.
