When Jesus is about 28 years old, he heads back to his homeland to preach the glory of God, passing through many countries; Afghanistan, Persia and many Middle Eastern countries, before arriving in Israel. Many people were deeply touched by his humility and his message and they become his followers. Chapter 1 start with the Indian traders who had witnessed the execution of Jesus by the soldiers of Governor Pilate chapter 1, verses , and chapter 14, verses , and the efforts of Pilate to prosecute Jesus chapter 10, verses and chapter Notovitch studied and summarized his findings in , and later in , Swami Abhedananda of the Ramakrishna Order Vedanta Society reviewed and verified the authenticity of the apocrypha by personally studying them at Himis monastery.
Later Nicholas Roerich and Elisabeth Caspari confirmed the existence of these documents during their visits to the Buddhist monastery at Himis The translation into English from the original French has been beautifully rendered, and the work of Notovitch is highly illuminating and explains the whereabouts of Jesus in his adolescent years. There are a number of books in literature that discusses the parallels in the acts and sayings of Jesus with that of Buddha.
The summary of Notovitch reads like a lost gospel of Jesus Christ. Oct 25, Balaji Sundarrajan rated it liked it.
The Unknown Sayings of Jesus
A somewhat interesting yarn about the life of Jesus between the age of 13 and time he began his ministry at age The book suggests that he spent that time studying at the hands of Buddhist masters during a sojourn into India. There is, of course, nothing to suggest this. The author purports to have discovered this during a visit to a Buddhist convent and studying scrolls. The author, however, never did produce any such scrolls. The supposed account of what Jesus did during those years which aren't recorded in the bible Feb 13, Rama rated it it was amazing Shelves: bible , new-testament.
Long before Jesus was born, India had become a familiar place in the Middle East because of the trade, and also missionary work of Buddhists beyond the Indian subcontinent.

It described Jesus' coming to India when he was 13 and studying there with monks, and eventually becoming a very influential monk himself.
Then in his late 20's he went back to Israel to finish his mission. It's an interesting tale, especially since those years are missing from any New Testament account. However, there is no trace of the original document, some say it was taken as part of the Chi This is an interesting account copied from a document found with the Tibetan Buddhists in the s.

Say what you will - I buy it. I'm kind of a "By their fruits you shall know them" kind of guy. That said, this sounds and feels like Jesus, and even if it was some sort of elaborate hoax, one won't go wrong by reading and internalizing Jesus' words here. There's nothing that contradicts my views on Jesus here,and pleanty that enhances my understanding of the the Nazarene.
The part on the divinity of the feminine is extremely beautiful. The book that started it all! Sketchy at best. Nothing concrete, a fanciful account! View 2 comments.

Upon this, an old woman who had approached the group, to better hear Issa, was pushed aside by one of the disguised men, who placed himself before her. Then said Issa: "It is not good for a son to push away his mother, that he may occupy the place which belongs to her.

Whoso doth not respect his mother—the most sacred being after his God—is unworthy of the name of son. Upon her man depends in all his existence, for she is his moral and natural support in his labors.
Bless her and adore her, for she is your only friend and support on earth. In so doing you will gain for yourself her love; you will find favor before God, and for her sake many sins will be remitted to you. They are the most beautiful ornaments of the universe, and from them will be born all who will inhabit the world. Notovitch, Nicolas.

Kindle Edition. An alternative view to the life of Jesus I like the approach to the history and culture presented on the subject. I find it helpful to have a diverse viewpoint. However the religious terminology and theological concepts have the flavor of a Catholic trying to reform that church. For example, there is evidence to show that Jesus' parents were Essene but this is not presented in the book.
The use of the word "Pagan" is a typical medieval Catholic usage.

This stage of our journey had nothing playful in it. The road was torn in deep ruts by the late rains, darkness came upon us and our horses rather guessed than saw their way.
When night had completely set in, a tempestuous rain surprised us in the open country, and, owing to the thick foliage of the centennarian oaks which stood on the sides of our road, we were plunged in profound darkness. That we might not lose each other, we had to continue exchanging calls from time to time. In this impenetrable obscurity we divined huge masses of rock almost above our heads, and were conscious of, on our left, a roaring torrent, the waters of which formed a cascade we could not see. During two hours we waded in the mud and the icy rain had chilled my very marrow, when we perceived in the distance a little fire, the sight of which revived our energies.
But how deceitful are lights in the mountains! You believe you see the fire burning quite near to you and at once it disappears, to re-appear again, to the right, to the left, above, below you, as if it took pleasure in playing tricks upon the harassed traveller.
All the time the road makes a thousand turns, and winds here and there, and the fire--which is immovable--seems to be in continual motion, the obscurity preventing you realizing that you yourself modify your direction every instant. I had quite given up all hope of approaching this much-wished-for fire, when it appeared again, and this time so near that our horses stopped before it. I have here to express my sincere thanks to the Englishmen for the foresight of which they gave proof in building by the road-sides the little bengalows--one-story houses for the shelter of travellers. It is true, one must not demand comfort in this kind of hotel; but this is a matter in which the traveller, broken down by fatigue, is not exacting, and he is at the summit of happiness when he finds at his disposal a clean and dry room.
The Hindus, no doubt, did not expect to sec a traveller arrive at so late an hour of the night and in this season, for they had taken away the keys of the bengalow, so we had to force an entrance. Dietary restrictions were later lifted for Christians. Share Flipboard Email.
