Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Proof Of Vedic Culture's Global Existence is a remarkable and informative historical survey of Vedic civilization and its enduring cultural and spiritual contributions that are to be found in the cultures, religions, and spiritual movements of today. Stephen Knapp explains how Vedic knowledge was given to humanity by the Supreme; the history and traditional source of the Vedas and Vedic Aryan society; who the original Vedic Aryans were and how Sanskrit faded from being a global language in antiquity; post-enlightenment scientific discoveries of things known to ancient Vedic culture; how the origins of world literature are found in India and Sanskrit; links between the Vedic and such antiquarian societies as the Sumerians, Persians, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, and others; links between the Vedic tradition and Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism; how many western holy sites, churches, and mosques were once the sites of Vedic holy places and sacred shrines; Vedic influences in Europe, the Middle Easter, Africa, South Pacific, and the Americas; ; and the need to plan for the continued survival of Vedic culture. Informative, challenging, occasionally startling, Proof Of Vedic Culture's Global Existence is very highly recommended reading for students of religion, spirituality, metaphysics, and ancient history.
