He translated Maharshi Jaimini's Upadesha Sutras which became immensely popular. He also got numerous disciples. As he couldn’t handle both Government service and his true passion, he resigned from the job in the year 2000 to completely concentrate in astrology.  Sanjay Rath uses Brhat Parasara Horasastra, Jaimini Upadesa Sutra, Kalyanavarma’s Saravali and Jaimini Upades Sutra as his basic books. He also refers Bhagavat Gita, Hindu puranas and Hindu Upanishads. He is a strict follower of the teachings of the ancient seers and is also a keen promoter for research and further development of the subject.

He founded Sri Jagannath Vedic Center (SJVC) in 1998 as a platform for open discussion about the teachings of his Jyotish tradition. But due to difference in opinion with his fellow friends, he left the institution and founded Sri Jagannath Center (SJC) in 2001. Teachings are based on Sanskrit works written by ancient saints, Parasara and Jaimini.
