n 1987 Randolph met Alexander Smit, the Dutch teacher of Advaita Vedanta, who had been a
direct disciple of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. After three years of intensive contact, Randolph
realized, at the age of 31, who he was and had always been. With the discovery of his True
Nature his search ended and his journey of realization began. In the years that followed he was
piloted through all the classic traps and pitfalls of the mind. This was, as he has said: “a seven-
year-long process during which every form of attention was taken into the Heart, there to be
completely and definitively lost, ultimately to rise again as the Radiant.” Through realizations
of oneness and the Absolute, the ultimate Liberation manifested itself. This ultimate Liberation
is something quite different from the oneness and enlightenment which are often seen these
days as the final spiritual goal.
Randolph passes on the essence of two traditions. From Selva Raja Yesudian, a student of Sri
Ramana Maharshi and one of the first yogis who came to Europe in the 1950s, he received the
Heart Transmission at a young age. Through Alexander Smit, from the Navnath Sampradaya
tradition, was his immediacy awakened. The spontaneous convergence of these two traditions
has resulted in an extraordinary combination, which makes the teachings unbelievably direct
and intense as well as pure and full of love.
Randolph is the father of four children and has given Satsang for ten years, in Bilthoven,
Amsterdam and in Majorca (Spain).
