Product Description

This book provides evidence which makes it clear that most religious history is not what we think it is. It lets you see the true heritage that has been suppressed for centuries. It shows that there was once a greatly advanced and ancient culture that was a global society. This was the Vedic civilization. Even today we can see its influence in any part of the world, which makes it obvious that before the world became full of distinct and separate cultures, religions, and countries, it was once united in a common brotherhood of Vedic culture, with common standards, ideals, language, and representations of God.
No matter what we may be in regard to our present religion, society, or country, we are all descendants of that ancient, global civilization. The Vedic tradition of India is the parent of humanity and the original ancestor of all religions. Through this book you will see:
How Vedic knowledge was given to humanity by the Supreme.
The history and traditional source of the Vedas and Vedic
Aryan society.
Who were the original Vedic Aryans. How Vedic society was a global influence and what shattered this world-wide society.
Many scientific discoveries over the past several centuries are only rediscoveries of what was already known in the Vedic literature.
The origins of world language and literature are found in India and Sanskrit. How Sanskrit faded from being a global language.
The Vedic influence and proof of its ancient existence found in such countries as Britain, France, Russia, Greece, China, Japan, Egypt, and in areas of Scandinavia, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas.
The links between the Vedic and other ancient cultures, such as the Sumerians, Persians, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, etc.
How Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism were all influenced by the Vedic tradition and still contain many Vedic elements within them.
How many of the western holy sites, churches, and mosques were once the sites of Vedic holy places and sacred shrines.
Uncovering the truth of India’s history: Powerful evidence that shows how many mosques and Muslim buildings were once opulent Vedic temples.
The need to recognize the real history of the world, and to protect what is left of Vedic culture, the roots of humanity.

This book is offered as an attempt to allow humanity to see more clearly its universal origins. However, this book provides enough amazing if not startling facts and evidence about the truth of world history and the ancient, global Vedic culture, that it could quite possibly cause a major shift in the way we view religious history and world traditions.

Stephen Knapp has studied the major Vedic texts of India and practiced yoga and the Eastern teachings for over forty years. He has traveled extensively throughout India and has taken over 17,000 photos of the numerous holy places he has visited.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but some facts are misleading 16 May 2012
By Sonny Laskin - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought this book right here on Amazon and it takes some time to get through it as it is a relatively larger sized book. It has a lot of useful information like how sanskrit is related to other ancient languages like greek, latin, hittite, and mittani with common words like matr, pitr, sapta,....etc. This is pertinent as it shows there is some relationship between the vedic india kingdom and far off countries in europe like Italy, Greece, and Ireland. But there is also a few spurious facts like austrailia is a derived vedic name because of the sanskrit name astral-alaya (the land of the missiles). This is erroneous because the english word austrailia is derived from the latin word austrailis, which means southern land or land that is south. Now, this latin word austrailis maybe derived from a sanskrit orgin but it has nothing to do with land of the missiles. An english explorer or military man (I forgot) named the continent that in Latin as it went well with the other geographic continentinal names. I have to commend Stephen on enlightening me on facts in ancient European artifacts that show instances of vedic culture. An example would be of frescoes in Etruscian cities depicting the Ramanayam. Or how Druids, and anicient egyptian priests wear dhotis, bathe their deities and offer their deities food just like Hindu priets have done and still do today. He also points out major places and countries were descended from vedic rishis. Like how the area around the caspian sea was named and are the descendents of the sage Kashyap. Also, how egyptians and ancient egypt is descended from the Raja Yayati. This all makes sense and I would presume the rishis mated with different beings like Daityas, Kinnaras or Gandharvas to create the different races. If not, then everybody on earth would look like the Indian race and there would not different people of different races that look different from one another. Scientists have found out all people of the caucasian race have descended from one person. This makes perfect sense when you read this book. To summarize, this is a great book to learn how vedic culture was the one culture which everything spurned from. This is not so outrageous or ridiculous to believe. From one comes many multiples. Even in the bible, abraham started the whole jewish people and race. From that one person, there is now so many varieties of humans who are jewish and now who live on this earth. Why is it ludicrous to not think that vedic rishis started human civilization and culture? If you get a chance you should buy this book and learn about real history. Not the history you are brainwashed in school telling you that the aryans invaded India or that sanskrit is derived from a mother indo-european lanaguage. In this book, you will learn about the real history of mankind (english world derived from the sanskrit word manu for man) coming from authortiative vedic sources that came directly from god.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Crusade for Vedic Antiquity 12 June 2011
By aumco - Published on
Verified Purchase
The author should be congratulated for underlining the fact that Vedic patrimony forms the very substrate on which all other cultures are based. Although attention has been drawn to the affinities between Sanskrit and other languages, mention should have been made of the fact that Vedic sciences and arts pioneered the flowering of these subjects globally.
More careful editing could have eliminated redundant information and some misleading assumptions. Thus, it is incorrect to equate the antiquity of the Indus-Sarasvati civilization with that in Mesopotamia, although white race supremacists have done so arbitrarily to embellish their own ancestry. Whereas archeological evidence at Mehragarh has firmly established the former to go back to at least 8000 BC, there is no evidence that the latter took shape before 6000 BC. Also, the author opines that the message of Jesus was directed to poor Hindus whereas in reality the period between Ashoka and Gupta Empires was the golden age of Bharata with free food, lodging and health care for all. Indeed, there is no evidence for colonies of poor Hindus in the area where Jesus practiced his ministry although colonies of affluent Hindu traders were to be found from Philippines to Arabia.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Aryan Invasion Theory as Myth 15 March 2001
By tepi - Published on
Verified Purchase
Although Steven Knapp's 'Proof of Vedic Culture's Global Existence' has some very real weaknesses, it would be unwise to dismiss the whole of his thesis out of hand. In particular, he certainly seems to be on to something when he points out that there is little if any evidence to support the received view of an 'Aryan Invasion of India.'

It would seem that this THEORY - which is all it is - is a MYTH propagated by Western Scholars who wished, for politically motivated reasons, to devalue the achievements of Ancient India. As such it becomes not unlike certain other current myths which have been planted in the common mind and that work to prevent a true understanding of the past.

Those who may be interested in pursuing this matter should try to find a copy of David Frawley's 'Gods, Sages and Kings : Vedic Secrets of Ancient Civilization.' His article, 'The Myth of the Aryan Invasion of India' which appeared in "The India Times", can be found through Google and is available at: [...]

On another note, although I'm not a linguist it's my understanding that language tends to evolve from an older and earlier complexity of grammar towards a later simplicity, and if we look at Sanskrit, Ancient Greek, Latin and English what we find is that Sanskrit is more complex than Ancient Greek, Ancient Greek is more complex than Latin, and Latin is more complex than English. The movement from complexity to relative simplicity has been from East to West, and not West to East.

4.0 out of 5 stars Knapp is doing what no Hindu has not done! 20 November 2011
By ajnani - Published on
Verified Purchase
It is Stephan Knapp as usual, thorough in his research, comprehensive and makes you wonder how he thinks like that.Looking at the title, the first impression is ' Is Mr Knapp overdoing it? Is it another cock and bull story?' But after finishing the book one will certainly consider possibility and Hindus like me will believe it. Knapp is doing to Hinduism, what no Hindu has done. I hope his passion for the study of Hinduism becomes contagious.
