Vedische wetenschap

Personal info/contact


My name is Rob Knaapen. I took initiation from His Divine Grace Jayapataka Swami in 1991. Through this initiation, which includes following religious principles, I belong to the disciplic succession that goes back to Krishna, the original guru. The association with a liberated person, even for just a second, can inspire you to get rid of all illusions.

At the end of the eighties of the last century I went in search of factual knowledge. Travelling in India I met devotees of Krishna and along with them, became acquainted with the Vedic transcendental texts, the oldest texts on the planet concerning absolute knowledge as well as its application. The completeness of the Vedic knowledge and the accompanying lifestyle and culture proved too appealing to ignore and resulted in a four-year stay in a temple community in India where I started practising spiritual life.

The purpose of this site is to indicate that factual, constant knowledge exists and that it’s accessible to you too. To get there, God, the one who facilitates the material universe, advises complete surrender unto Him. Krishna says in the last verse (18.66) of the Bhagavad-Gita: "sarva dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja aham tvam sarva papebhyo moksayisyami ma sucah": "Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I will deliver you from all sinful reactions. Don't fear."

It is up to us as individuals to wander in the world of "maybe this, maybe that" and "if this, then that" or become free by re-establishing the individual's eternal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna. In short, while having the human form one can reach total freedom of life.
