The Vedic period is often called as the golden age of Indic civilization, and for good reason. The time period of the Vedic era is debatable, but there is no doubt regarding the influence it still has on the Indian sub continent, be it in spirituality, culture, language as described in the Vedas. With the passage of time, a lot of the wisdom from that age has either been lost or misinterpreted. This course hopes to highlight some of those teachings passed on by the sages of a bygone era which we can hope to incorporate in our present lives.
Instructor: Stephen Knapp
Stephen Knapp(Sri Nandanandana Dasa) grew up in a Christian family, during which time he seriously studied the Bible to understand its teachings. In his late teenage years, however, he began to search through other religions and philosophies from around the world and started to find the answers for which he was looking. He also studied a variety of occult sciences, ancient mythology, mysticism, yoga, and the spiritual teachings of the East. He continued his study of Vedic knowledge and spiritual practice under the guidance of a spiritual master, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
