In addition, he completed his secular studies through the 12th grade.
From 1990 to 1991, Pandit Sharma studied the Ashta Brahmana and Grihya Sutras with the late Shri Shankar Shrauti Gal, who was a professor (acharya) at the Veda Mimansa Anusandhana Kendra school in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India.

His Center offers to individuals, organizations and businesses Vedic yagyas (sacred ceremonies), homams (ancient fire ceremonies), and pujas as prescribed in the Vedas and Shastras, the holy Indian scriptures.

The Vedic Yagya Center employs a core group of over 20 Vedic pandits, representing all 4 branches of the Vedas, who are experts in different kinds of yagyas, homams and pujas, including Sri Vidya Navavarana Pujas, Maha Vidya Homas, Surya Upasana, and Maha Chandi Yagyas. For large yagyas, the Center contracts with other Vedic pandits in India. The Center has organized big yagyas and events with as many as 100 to 150 Vedic pandits.
All the Vedic pandits working through the Center begin their day with meditation, followed by the performance of the Rudrabishek and then they go to their other duties. Some of these Vedic pandits specialize in health yagyas, some in business yagyas, etc., so the Center organizes its Vedic pandits into groups. according to their specialties.
Pandit Sharma and his Vedic pandits have traveled all over India, Canada and the U.S., as well as to many other countries in the world, including New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and England, performing their services.
Pandit Sharma has also assisted in the founding, organizing, fundraising and building of many temples in North America, including the Austin Hindu Temple, in Austin, Texas, where he served as the head Vedic priest, and the Sri Devi Mandir in Fairfield, Iowa.
Pandit Sharma’s grandfather, the late Brahma Shri Samavedula Narayana Shastri, at the end of his life, told Pandit Sharma that he will be in a very good position one day, and that whenever God has given him enough, he should start a Vedic school to preserve the Vedas.
In keeping with his grandfather’s wishes, in 2002, Pandit Sharma and his father founded the Vydic Foundation of India, which is a charitable trust and school that trains Vedic Pandits in Kanchikacherla, Andhra Pradesh, India. This school now has 40 students and 9 professors (acharyas). The Vedic Yagya Center supports the Vydic Foundation of India, which, besides operating the pandit training school, is also actively involved in feeding the poor.
