Stephen Knapp grew up questioning the mysteries of life, especially the spiritual mysteries. He 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 sought answers to questions not easily explained in Christian theology. So, 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. Finally, after his first reading of the Bhagavad-gita, the classic summary of Vedic philosophy, he felt he had found the last piece of the puzzle he had been putting together through all of his research. This increased his understanding of everything else he had been studying. Therefore, he continued to research all of the major Vedic texts of India to gain a better understanding of the Vedic science and its traditions, until he became a full-fledged follower and practitioner of Sanatana-dharma. Under the authority of Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Stephen and was given the spiritual name of Sri Nandanandana dasa and became initiated into the spiritual line of the Brahma-Madhava-Gaudiya sampradaya.
He continues his study of the Vedic philosophy and its traditions, and also how its culture can be found in many parts of the world, dating back to prehistoric times.

Stephen has also been to India numerous times and traveled extensively throughout the country, visiting almost every state of India and most of the major holy places and temples, and many minor ones, and gaining a wide variety of spiritual experiences that only such places can give. He has just completed his 23rd visit to India.
Stephen is also a free-lance photographer and does what he calls cultural photojournalism, capturing the essence of India and spiritual life in practice, which can help explain and show the depth of the culture, and has put together a collection of over 18,000 slides of various places, temples, festivals, and people of India.
