About the designer

Paul Rodney Turner

Paul Rodney Turner was born in Sydney, Australia in 1963 and grew up in the Western Suburbs of Sydney. From a very early age, he became interested in astronomy, astrology, numerology, billiards and graphic design.

At the age of 19, Paul left home to join an ashram and become a bhakti yogi monk and take a vow of celibacy. For the next 14 years Paul, now known as “Priyavrata das” — or “Priya” for short — by his fellow Vaisnava monks, studied the ancient teachings of the Vedas as taught by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami and the mystical arts of numerology and sacred geometry.
