Holger Kersten (born ) is a German writer on myth, legend, religion and esoteric subjects. He is best known for the books about Jesus' early years and later years in India. In he led an expedition looking for the birthplace of Mithras. Contents. 1 Jesus Lived in India, ; 2 The Original Jesus, ; 3 The Jesus. Jesus Lived In India by Kersten Holger from kaz-news.info The book presents evidence supporting this claim, and explains how several historical sites prove. Thus begins Holger Kersten's book "Jesus Lived in India". This German book is a thorough, methodical and authoritative examination of the evidence of Christ's.

It suggests answers to questions that many of us have found bewilderingly unanswered and unaddressed in the religion in general, it helpfully addresses our doubts. Some of the ideas are shocking to us at first as they are completely new to us. Most of the things discussed here happened so long ago that we cannot nor does the book claim that we can know exactly what happened. But using scholarship, research and evaluation of likely ideas this book propones ideas about Christian and Jewish history that I, personally, found to be fascinating and sometimes even satisfying.

I will not attempt to record all of the background and research supporting the ideas here, but I do encourage you all to read this book or one of several others like it, to explore the ideas. They have increased my faith in Christianity because it showed me how the foundation of that religion might have been one of love and compassion. Some very brief examples of the content, though with no attempt to give all the evidence exhibited in the book: The book obviously suggests an aspect of Indian and therefore Hindu and Buddhist influence on the life of Jesus Christ much, though obviously not all of which, could coincide comfortably with mainstream Christian culture and teaching.

Nov 19, Paula Savioli rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is certainly very criticised before many people can even reflect about it, because it deals with the things many people were raised to believe, and these people are often offended if their beliefs are talked about from a different point of view. What this book brought was completely new to me.

I'm very interested in theology and history, but had never read about what Indian and other eastern authors have to say about Jesus. In my opinion Holger Kersten presented very solid arguments to This book is certainly very criticised before many people can even reflect about it, because it deals with the things many people were raised to believe, and these people are often offended if their beliefs are talked about from a different point of view.

In my opinion Holger Kersten presented very solid arguments to justify and exemplify his points. It remains the reader's task to go further on the subject reading the tons of reference the author gives, or even visit the places he describes. I won't describe those points here; I recommend you to read them yourself. Or whatever. Because of all that and I could make that list way longer , the book made an absurd amount of sense to me.

It was like I wasn't reading new information, I was just being told what I already new, now with historical proof. In no way I think this book is anti-religion. It is just in favor of Jesus ideas, taking off what was added by other men. View 1 comment.

This book greatly increased my respect for and faith in Jesus Christ. I do not agree with all ideas put forward by this book.

But I do find some parts of it easier to believe than Christian mainstream teachings. It suggests answers to questions that many of us have found bewilderingly unanswered and unaddressed in the religion in general, it helpfully addresses our doubts.

Some of the ideas are shocking to us at first as they are completely new to us. Most of the things discussed here happened so long ago that we cannot nor does the book claim that we can know exactly what happened. But using scholarship, research and evaluation of likely ideas this book propones ideas about Christian and Jewish history that I, personally, found to be fascinating and sometimes even satisfying. I will not attempt to record all of the background and research supporting the ideas here, but I do encourage you all to read this book or one of several others like it, to explore the ideas.

They have increased my faith in Christianity because it showed me how the foundation of that religion might have been one of love and compassion. Some very brief examples of the content, though with no attempt to give all the evidence exhibited in the book: The book obviously suggests an aspect of Indian and therefore Hindu and Buddhist influence on the life of Jesus Christ much, though obviously not all of which, could coincide comfortably with mainstream Christian culture and teaching.

In his early life, the book suggests that the 18 or so years that Christianity cannot account for, were spent studying Buddhism, perhaps in India having taken a commonly used merchant route in use at the time.

This itself I find to be fascinating and compelling. It shows how there are strong indications in the canonical gospels that this is the case. But when I compare the idea that there was a small conspiracy in a Roman province that would have reached up the Roman chain of command only as high as some members of the army to keep one condemned man from suffering the fate of his criminal sentencing or that that man met his fate and then rose from the dead, the small conspiracy does not seem like the least plausible option.

Then, the idea goes, they nursed him back to health and that he then lived out his life, in hiding from his Jewish enemies, back in the land of his education as a peaceful and widely respected teacher. Just two quick bits of evidence among others given here — crucifixion takes about 5 days to kill someone unless their legs are broken or some other means is taken to induce the asphyxiation that causes death in crucifixion — the Gospels make clear neither of these things took place.

The author also studies at great detail the history and scientific research of the Shroud of Turin, the authenticity of which he assures us of this is an example of a part of the book I actually found more difficult to believe. The Dead Sea Scrolls are examined at details as well as the Essenes, and each of their relationship to Jesus as well. The book was very well written and reaffirming of many positive aspects of Christianity that many of us who have had questions about that faith might find reassuring.

I highly recommend it. Apr 09, Chandan Priyadarshi rated it it was amazing Shelves: A nice informative book, revealing some unknown truth about Jesus life and his visit to India.

Oct 06, Jamie rated it it was ok Shelves: Not particularly well organized or well written book but written on an interesting topic: Christ's missing years from around age 13 to age 28 which are not discussed in the 4 Gospels.

Perhaps Kersten's book suffers in translation. The theory is no less credible than some of the superstitious stories offered by the 4 gospels. Of course, billions beli Not particularly well organized or well written book but written on an interesting topic: Of course, billions believe the Jesus, son of God, possessed of supernatural powers theory.

Christ's missing years has been subject of much speculation. Almost exact similarities between Buddhist teachings and Christ's teachings have been noted by scholars many times, thought most Christian scholars--especially the superstitious ones--see such a link as "unthinkable.

Of course, given trade routes, Jesus would not need to visit India to have been exposed to the Buddhist theories of good behavior. Kersten's theory that Jesus was actually in India is based on various sources. Kersten relies quite a bit on Notovitch's tale that he saw a scroll in a Buddhist monastery detailing Christ's arrival, preaching, and later death in the Kashmir region.

Many--including open minded contemporary scholars of Notovich's time such as Max Mueller--think Notovich's tale a fabrication photocopy technology not being then extant while others think the scroll seen was downloadd, purloined, or destroyed by Catholic church representatives.

I skipped the Shroud of Turin speculations, having seen a scientist explaining how it was probably created in mid-evil times and being very dubious of relics. All in all an interesting book for the open minded. I gave it 2 stars rather than 3 based on my subjective dislike for the book's organization and writing style.

Jan 19, Vijai rated it really liked it Shelves: This is one of those books you pick up from the darkest corner of the book shop because you just felt like it. Crucifixion was not practised in Asia, so it is quite possible that they were inflicted elsewhere, such as the Middle East. Ancient records acknowledge the existence of the tomb as long ago as AD.

The implications of Kersten's discovery are monumental.

When Jesus Lived in India: The Quest for the Aquarian Gospel: The Mystery of the Missing Years

Christ's life in India, after the crucifixion, challenges current Church teachings at their very foundation. Threatened also are the doctrines of obedience to the Church, original sin, salvation through blind faith and the non-existence of reincarnation, etc.

Yet these ideas underlie the morality and ethics, or lack of them , that govern the entire Western social structure, from the legal system to medical health care schemes. It is no wonder that the modern Churches and their secular interests refuse to consider such a proposition as Kersten's! The Lost Years of Jesus: From age thirteen to age twenty-nine, he was both a student and teacher of Buddhist and Hindu holy men The story of his journey from Jerusalem to Benares was recorded by Brahman historians Today they still know him and love him as St.

He was a Russian doctor who journeyed extensively throughout Afghanistan, India, and Tibet. Notovitch journeyed through the lovely passes of Bolan, over the Punjab, down into the arid rocky land of Ladak, and into the majestic Vale of Kashmir of the Himalayas.

During one of his jouneys he was visiting Leh, the capital of Ladak, near where the buddhist convent Himis is. He had an accident that resulted in his leg being broken.

This gave him the unscheduled opportunity to stay awhile at the Himis convent. Notovitch learned, while he was there, that there existed ancient records of the life of Jesus Christ. In the course of his visit at the great convent, he located a Tibetan translation of the legend and carefully noted in his carnet de voyage over two hundred verses from the curious document known as "The Life of St.

Notovitch enlisted a member of his party to translate the Tibetan volumes while he carefully noted each verse in the back pages of his journal. When he returned to the western world there was much controversy as to the authenticity of the document.

He was accused of creating a hoax and was ridiculed as an imposter. In his defense he encouraged a scientific expedition to prove the original tibetan documents existed. One of his skeptics was Swami Abhedananda. Abhedananda journeyed into the arctic region of the Himalayas, determined to find a copy of the Himis manuscript or to expose the fraud. His book of travels, entitled Kashmir O Tibetti, tells of a visit to the Himis gonpa and includes a Bengali translation of two hundred twenty-four verses essentially the same as the Notovitch text.

Abhedananda was thereby convinced of the authenticity of the Issa legend. In , another Russian named Nicholas Roerich arrived at Himis. Roerich, was a philosopher and a distinguished scientist. He apparently saw the same documents as Notovitch and Abhedananda.

And he recorded in his own travel diary the same legend of St. Speaking of Issa, Roerich quotes legends which have the estimated antiquity of many centuries. He passed his time in several ancient cities of India such as Benares.

All loved him because Issa dwelt in peace with Vaishas and Shudras whom he instructed and helped. But the Brahmins and Kshatriyas told him that Brahma forbade those to approach who were created out of his womb and feet.

The Vaishas were allowed to listen to the Vedas only on holidays and the Shudras were forbidden not only to be present at the reading of the Vedas, but could not even look at them. Issa said that man had filled the temples with his abominations. In order to pay homage to metals and stones, man sacrificed his fellows in whom dwells a spark of the Supreme Spirit. Man demeans those who labor by the sweat of their brows, in order to gain the good will of the sluggard who sits at the lavishly set board.

But they who deprive their brothers of the common blessing shall be themselves stripped of it. Vaishas and Shudras were struck with astonishment and asked what they could perform.

Issa bade them "Worship not the idols. Do not consider yourself first. Do not. Help the poor. Sustain the feeble. Do evil to no one. Do not covet that which you do not possess and which is possessed by others.

But Issa, forewarned, departed from this place by night. Afterward, Issa went into Nepal and into the Himalayan mountains Then Issa replied to them: He who cannot behold them is deprived of the greatest gift of life. But woe to you, enemies of men, woe unto you, if you await that He should attest his power by miracle.

Do not steal the goods of others, because that would be usurpation from your near one. Do not cheat, that you may in turn not be cheated Then Pilate, ruler of Jerusalem, gave orders to lay hands upon the preacher Issa and to deliver him to the judges, without however, arousing the displeasure of the people. But Issa taught: But gather force and support each other. He who supports his neighbor strengthens himself "I tried to revive the laws of Moses in the hearts of the people.

And I say unto you that you do not understand their true meaning because they do not teach revenge but forgiveness. But the meaning of these laws is distorted. But Issa, recognizing the disguised servants, said, "I did not foretell unto you that you would be delivered from Caesar; but I said that the soul which was immersed in sin would be delivered from sin.

Then Issa said, "Reverence Woman, mother of the universe,' in her lies the truth of creation. She is the foundation of all that is good and beautiful. She is the source of life and death. Upon her depends the existence of man, because she is the sustenance of his labors. She gives birth to you in travail, she watches over your growth. Bless her.She is the foundation of all that is good and beautiful.
