We live as if we were Sons of the Man who fell into a deep sleep after the creation, and we do not remember who we are and where we are.
Catching up, however, the concept extracted from Helen Schucman channeled writings (1909-1981), in the book "A course in miracles", there is a technique for awakening: "forgiveness".
When is believed to have suffered an attack or to have been offended by someone with "forgiveness we must create the feeling as if the offenses and attacks of a brother towards his brother never really happened".
We must not forgive sins, because doing so would be creating their reality. We must imagine, visualize and feel in our hearts, without comment and without Ego, that simply never existed any sin. With this perspective, all the sins will be forgiven, because they never existed.
The most glaring example of this attitude is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, that is not the only son of man, but just one of enlightened beings who were conscious of belonging to a single divine matrix (we are all fragments of a single matrix).
Jesus is not died for our sins (there are no sins): "the real significance of the crucifixion is in the apparent intensity of the assault by some of the sons of men against another" and in demonstrating that "the assault that, judged from the point of view of the Ego, seems the most outrageous, doesn't really count." "Doesn't count" because evil and aggression-even in the most violent form shown by crucifixion--do not exist.
This attitude will have two effects:
1- will free us and others from faults and sins;
2- will amend the quantum reality of the past (as it happens scientifically with quantum particles).
If the changes in our planet seem inevitable, as the scientific data point, this doesn’t mean that we don’t have the right to defend ourselves. Many scholars and authors are devoting to this arduous task, disseminating the history of our true origins and explaining how, why and when this already happened.
The secret to overcoming obstacles is the knowledge:
1) Who are we?
2) Why and who made us as we are?
3) What is the origin of previous errors?
4) How to deal with violent events of nature without repeating the mistakes of the past?
5) Have we the quantum capable for changing the reality that we’ll face?
I suggest that by learning the proper technique of prayer we might influence any events to come. The instructions have been left thousands of years ago by the survivors of the last cataclysm that caused the flood. However, these statements have remained buried for thousands of years and even Jesus, sent to clarify the situation, failed to reach a large enough space for everyone assimilating the new concepts.
Everything that happens on this planet emerges by collective consciousness. It is the product of the combined reality shared by all. This reality is modeled, partially-formed and created by you ... each second, hour and day. Thoughts are quantum waves that generate the reality of each time, and can be used from us to modify the quantum reality created by other thoughts before us...
My name is Juzu Asaph, which is a pseudonym.
My Faith is the Truth, but I live in the reality that you create too.
Juzu, in the Hebrew language, means "Jesus".
Asaph, in the Hebrew language, means "the Good Shepherd".
I don't understand why someone writes and says that God is imaginary.
God exists because I and you exist. Because you and I are composed of God.
God will live and learn.
He makes it by the all and by our level of consciousness!
God is unique and is our Matrix. He is the Father and the Mother.
A unique Apocalypse never existed:
instead, a great deal of Apocalypses exist.
God creates the Apocalypses.
It's necessary for the continuous Resurrection.
Resurrection is Life.
Who doesn't understand this will cause the decomposition of his own conscious entity.
This is an invitation.
Take part of your reality with consciousness!
We are the creators of the reality, because we carry out the God's plan.
Read the Mellen-Thomas Benedict testimony and listen to interview.
After suffering from a terminal illness, in 1982 Mellen-Thomas Benedict ‘died’ and for an hour and a half he was monitored showing no vital signs. Miraculously he returned to his body with a complete remission of the disease – and what may be the most inspirational near-death experience story known to date.
Mellen-Thomas Benedict testimony.
In 1982 I died from terminal cancer. The condition I had was inoperable, and any kind of chemotherapy they could give me would just have made me more of a vegetable. I was given six to eight months to live.
I had been an information freak in the1970’s, and I had become increasingly despondent over the nuclear crisis, the ecology crisis, and so forth. So, since I did not have a spiritual basis, I began to believe that nature had made a mistake, and that we were probably a cancerous organism on the planet. I saw no way that we could get out from all the problems we had created for ourselves and the planet. I perceived all humans as cancer, and that is what I got.
That is what killed me. Be careful what your world view is. It can feed back on you, especially if it is a negative world view. I had a seriously negative one. That is what led me into my death. I tried all sorts of alternative healing methods, but nothing helped.
So I determined that this was really just between me and God. I had never really faced God before, or even dealt with God.
I was not into any kind of spirituality at the time, but I began a journey into learning about spirituality and alterna¬tive healing. I set out to do all the reading I could and bone up on the subject, because I did not want to be surprised on the other side. So I started reading on various religions and philosophies. They were all very interesting, and gave hope that there was something on the other side. I ended up in hospice care.
I remember waking up one morning at home about 4:30 AM, and I just knew that this was it. This was the day I was going to die. So I called a few friends and said goodbye. I woke up my hospice caretaker and told her. I had a private agreement with her that she would leave my dead body alone for six hours, since I had read that all kinds of interesting things happen when you die. I went back to sleep.
The next thing I remember is the beginning of a typical near-death experience. Suddenly I was fully aware and I was standing up, but my body was in the bed. There was this darkness around me. Being out of my body was even more vivid than ordinary experience. It was so vivid that I could see every room in the house, I could see the top of the house, I could see around the house, I could see under the house.
There was this Light shining. I turned toward the Light. The Light was very similar to what many other people have described in their near-death experiences. It was so magnificent. It is tangible; you can feel it. It is alluring; you want to go to it like you would want to go to your ideal mother’s or father’s arms.
As I began to move toward the Light, I knew intuitively that if I went to the Light, I would be dead. So as I was moving toward the Light I said, “Please wait a minute, just hold on a second here. I want to think about this; I would like to talk to you before I go.” To my surprise, the entire experience halted at that point. You are in control of your life after death experience. You are not on a roller coaster ride.
So my request was honored and I had some conversations with the Light. The Light kept changing into different figures, like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, mandalas, archetypal images and signs. I asked the Light, “What is going on here? Please, Light, clarify yourself for me. I really want to know the reality of the situation.” I cannot really say the exact words, because it was sort of telepathy.
The Light responded. The information transferred to me was that during your life after death experience your beliefs shape the kind of feedback you are getting before the Light. If you were a Buddhist or Catholic or Fundamentalist, you get a feedback loop of your own stuff. You have a chance to look at it and examine it, but most people do not. As the Light revealed itself to me, I became aware that what I was really seeing was our higher Self matrix.
We all have a higher Self, or an oversoul part of our being. It revealed itself to me in its truest energy form. The only way I can really describe it is that the being of the higher Self is more like a conduit. It did not look like that, but it is a direct connection to the Source that each and every one of us has. We are directly connected to the Source. So the Light was showing me the higher Self matrix. I was not committed to one particular religion. So that is what was being fed back to me during my life after death experience.
As I asked the Light to keep clearing for me, to keep explaining, I understood what the higher Self matrix is. We have a grid around the planet where all the higher Selves are connected. This is like a great company, a next subtle level of energy around us, the spirit level, you might say. Then, after a couple of minutes, I asked for more clarification. I really wanted to know what the universe is about, and I was ready to go at that time. I said “I am ready, take me.”
Then the Light turned into the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen: a mandala of human souls on this planet. Now I came to this with my negative view of what was happening on the planet. So as I asked the Light to keep clarifying for me, I saw in this magnificent mandala how beautiful we all are in our essence, our core. We are the most beautiful creations.
The human soul, the human matrix that we all make together is absolutely fantastic, elegant, exotic, everything. I just cannot say enough about how it changed my opinion of human beings in that instant. I said, “Oh, God, I did not know how beautiful we are.” At any level, high or low, in whatever shape you are in, you are the most beautiful creation, you are.
The revelations coming from the Light and seemed to go on and on, then I asked the Light, “Does this mean that Mankind will be saved?” Then, like a trumpet blast with a shower of spiraling lights, the Great Light spoke, saying, “Remember this and never forget; you save, redeem and heal yourself. You always have. You always will. You were created with the power to do so from before the beginning of the world.”
In that instant I realized even more. I realized that WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN SAVED, and we saved ourselves because we were designed to self-correct like the rest of God’s universe. This is what the second coming is about. I thanked the Light of God with all my heart. The best thing I could come up with was these simple words of total appreciation: “Oh dear God, dear Universe, dear Great Self, I Love My Life.”
The Light seemed to breathe me in even more deeply. It was as if the Light was completely absorbing me. The Love Light is, to this day, indescribable. I entered into another realm, more profound than the last, and became aware of something more, much more. It was an enormous stream of Light, vast and full, deep in the Heart of Life. I asked what this was.
The Light responded, “This is the RIVER OF LIFE. Drink of this manna water to your heart’s content.” So I did. I took one big drink and then another. To drink of Life Itself! I was in ecstasy.
Then the Light said, “You have a desire.” The Light knew all about me, everything past, present and future. “Yes!” I whispered.
I asked to see the rest of the Universe; beyond our solar system, beyond all human illusion. The Light then told me that I could go with the Stream. I did, and was carried Through the Light at the End of the Tunnel. I felt and heard a series of very soft sonic booms. What a rush!
Suddenly I seemed to be rocketing away from the planet on this stream of Life. I saw the earth fly away. The solar system, in all its splendor, whizzed by and disappeared. At faster than light speed, I flew through the center of the galaxy, absorbing more knowledge as I went. I learned that this galaxy, and all of the Universe, is bursting with many different varieties of LIFE. I saw many worlds. The good news is that we are not alone in this Universe!
As I rode this stream of consciousness through the center of the galaxy, the stream was expanding in awesome fractal waves of energy. The super clusters of galaxies with all their ancient wisdom flew by. At first I thought I was going somewhere; actually traveling. But then I realized that, as the stream was expanding, my own consciousness was also expanding to take in everything in the Universe! All creation passed by me. It was an unimaginable wonder! I truly was a Wonder Child; a babe in Wonderland!
At this point, I found myself in a profound stillness, beyond all silence. I could see or perceive FOREVER, beyond Infinity.
I was in the Void.
I was in pre-creation, before the Big Bang. I had crossed over the beginning of time/the First Word/the First vibration. I was in the Eye of Creation. I felt as if I was touching the Face of God. It was not a religious feeling. Simply I was at one with Absolute Life and Consciousness.
When I say that I could see or perceive forever, I mean that I could experience all of creation generating itself. It was without beginning and without end. That’s a mind expanding thought, isn’t it?
Scientists perceive the Big Bang as a single event which created the Universe. I saw during my life after death experience that the Big Bang is only one of an infinite number of Big Bangs creating Universes endlessly and simultaneously. The only images that even come close in human terms would be those created by super computers using fractal geometry equations.
The ancients knew of this. They said God had periodically created new Universes by breathing out, and recreated other Universes by breathing in. These epochs were called Yugas. Modern science called this the Big Bang. I was in absolute, pure consciousness. I could see or perceive all the Big Bangs or Yugas creating and recreating themselves. Instantly I entered into them all simultaneously. I saw that each and every little piece of creation has the power to create. It is very difficult to try to explain this. I am still speechless about this.
It took me years after I returned from my near-death experience to assimilate any words at all for the Void experience. I can tell you this now: the Void is less than nothing, yet more than everything that is! The Void is absolute zero; chaos forming all possibilities. It is Absolute Consciousness; much more than even Universal Intelligence.
The Void is the vacuum or nothingness between all physical manifestations. The SPACE between atoms and their components. Modern science has begun to study this space between everything. They call it Zero point. Whenever they try to measure it, their instruments go off the scale, or to infinity, so to speak. They have no way, as of yet, to measure infinity accurately. There is more of the 0 space in your own body and the Universe than anything else!
What mystics call the Void is not a void. It is so full of energy, a different kind of energy that has created everything that we are. Everything since the Big Bang is vibration, from the first Word, which is the first vibration. The biblical “I am” really has a question mark after it. “I am—What am I?” So creation is God exploring God’s Self through every way imaginable, in an on¬going, infinite exploration through every one of us. I began to see during my near-death experience that everything that is, is the Self, literally, your Self, my Self. Everything is the great Self. That is why God knows even when a leaf falls. That is possible because wherever you are is the center of the universe. Wherever any atom is, that is the center of the universe. There is God in that, and God in the Void.
As I was exploring the Void during my life after death experience and all the Yugas or creations, I was completely out of time and space as we know it. In this expanded state, I discovered that creation is about Absolute Pure Consciousness, or God, coming into the Experience of Life as we know it. The Void itself is devoid of experience. It is pre life, before the first vibration. Godhead is about more than Life and Death. Therefore there is even more than Life and Death to experience in the Universe!
When I realized this I was finished with the Void, and wanted to return to this creation, or Yuga. It just seemed like the natural thing to do. Then I suddenly came back through the second Light, or the Big Bang, hearing several more velvet booms. I rode the stream of consciousness back through all of creation, and what a ride it was! The super clusters of galaxies came through me with even more insights. I passed through the center of our galaxy, which is a black hole. Black holes are the great processors or recyclers of the Universe.
Do you know what is on the other side of a Black Hole? We are; our galaxy, which has been reprocessed from another Universe. In its total energy configuration, the galaxy looked like a fantastic city of lights. All energy this side of the Big Bang is light. Every sub atom, atom, star, planet, even consciousness itself is made of light and has a frequency and/or particle. Light is living stuff. Everything is made of light, even stones. So everything is alive. Everything is made from the Light of God; everything is very intelligent.
As I rode the stream on and on, I could eventually see a huge Light coming. I knew it was the First Light; the higher Self Light Matrix of our solar system. Then the entire solar system appeared in the Light, accompanied by one of those velvet booms.
I could see all the energy that this solar system generates, and it is an incredible light show! I could hear the Music of the Spheres. Our solar system, as do all celestial bodies, generates a unique matrix of light, sound and vibratory energies. Advanced civilizations from other star systems can spot life as we know it in the universe by the vibratory or energy matrix imprint. It is child’s play. The earth’s Wonder child (human beings) make an abundance of sound right now, like children playing in the backyard of the universe.
The Light explained to me that there is no death; we are immortal beings. We have already been alive forever! I realized that we are part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly. I was never told that I had to come back. I just knew that I would. It was only natural, from what I had seen during my life after death experience.
I don’t know how long I was with the Light, in human time. But there came a moment when I realized that all my questions had been answered and my return was near. When I say that all my questions were answered on the other side, I mean to say just that. All my questions have been answered. Every human has a different life and set of questions to explore. Some of our questions are Universal, but each of us is exploring this thing we call Life in our own unique way. So is every other form of life, from mountains to every leaf on every tree.
And that is very important to the rest of us in this Universe. Because it all contributes to the Big Picture, the fullness of Life. We are literally God exploring God’s self in an infinite Dance of Life. Your uniqueness enhances all of Life.
As I began my return to the life cycle, it never crossed my mind, nor was I told that I would return to the same body. It just did not matter. I had complete trust in the Light and the Life process. As the stream merged with the great Light, I asked never to forget the revelations and the feelings of what I had learned on the other side.
There was a “Yes.” It felt like a kiss to my soul.
Then I was taken back through the Light into the vibratory realm again. The whole process reversed, with even more information being given to me. I came back home, and I was given lessons from my near-death experience on the mechanics of reincarnation. I was given answers to all those little questions I had: “How does this work? How does that work?” I knew that I would be reincarnated.
The earth is a great processor of energy, and individual consciousness evolves out of that into each one of us. I thought of myself as a human for the first time, and I was happy to be that. From what I have seen, I would be happy to be an atom in this universe. An atom. So to be the human part of God... this is the most fantastic blessing. It is a blessing beyond our wildest estimation of what blessing can be. For each and every one of us to be the human part of this experience is awesome, and magnificent. Each and every one of us, no matter where we are, screwed up or not, is a blessing to the planet, right where we are.
I went through the reincarnation process expecting to be a baby somewhere. But I was given a lesson on how individual identity and consciousness evolve. I was so surprised when I opened my eyes. I do not know why, because I understood it, but it was still such a surprise to be back in this body, back in my room with someone looking over me crying her eyes out. It was my hospice caretaker. She had given up an hour and a half after finding me dead. My body was stiff and inflexible. She went into the other room. Then I awakened and saw the light outside. I tried to get up to go to it, but I fell out of the bed. She heard a loud “clunk,” ran in and found me on the floor.
When I recovered, I was very surprised and yet very awed about what had happened to me during my near-death experience. At first all the memory of the trip that I have now was not there. I kept slipping out of this world and kept asking, “Am I alive?” This world seemed more like a dream than that one. Within three days I was feeling normal again, clearer, yet different than I had ever felt in my life. My memory of my near-death experience came back later. I could see nothing wrong with any human being I had ever seen. Before that I was really judgmental. I thought a lot of people were really screwed up, in fact I thought that everybody was screwed up but me. But I got clear on all that.
About three months later a friend said I should get tested, so I went and got the scans and so forth. I really felt good, so I was afraid of getting bad news. I remember the doctor at the clinic looking at the before and after scans, saying, “Well, there is nothing here now.” I said, “Really, it must be a miracle”’ He said “No, these things happen; they are called spontaneous remission.” He acted very unimpressed. But here was a miracle, and I was impressed, even if no one else was.
During my near-death experience I had a descent into what you might call Hell, and it was very surprising. I did not see Satan or evil. My descent into Hell was a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not knowing. It seemed like a miserable eternity. But each of the millions of souls around me had a little star of light always available. But no one seemed to pay attention to it. They were so consumed with their own grief, trauma and misery. But, after what seemed an eternity, I started calling out to that Light, like a child calling to a parent for help.
Then the Light opened up and formed a tunnel that came right to me and insulated me from all that fear and pain, That is what Hell really is. So what we are doing is learning to hold hands, to come together. The doors of Hell are open now. We are going to link up, hold hands, and walk out of Hell together. The Light came to me and turned into a huge golden angel. I said, “Are you the angel of death?” It expressed to me that it was my oversoul, my higher Self matrix, a super ancient part of ourselves. Then I was taken to the Light.
Soon our science will quantify spirit. Isn’t that going to be wonderful? We are coming up with devices now that are sensitive to subtle energy or spirit energy. Physicists use these atomic colliders to smash atoms to see what they are made of. They have got it down to quarks and charm, and all that. Well, one day they are going to come down to the little thing that holds it all together, and they are going to have to call that ... God. We are just beginning to understand that we are creating too, as we go along. As I saw forever, I came to a realm during my near-death experience in which there is a point where we pass all knowledge and begin creating the next fractal, the next level. We have that power to create as we explore. And that is God expanding itself through us.
Since my return I have experienced the Light spontaneously, and I have learned how to get to that space almost any time in my meditation. Each one of you can do this. You do not have to die or have a near-death experience to do this. It is within your equipment; you are wired for it already. The body is the most magnificent Light being there is. The body is a universe of incredible Light. Spirit is not pushing us to dissolve this body. That is not what is happening. Stop trying to become God; God is becoming you. Here.
I asked God: “What is the best religion on the planet? Which one is right?” And Godhead said, with great love: “I don’t care.” That was incredible grace. When Godhead said, “I don’t care,” I immediately understood that it is for us to care about. It is important, because we are the caring beings. It matters to us and that is where it is important. What you have is the energy equation in spirituality. Ultimate Godhead does not care if you are Protestant, Buddhist, or whatever. It is all a blooming facet of the whole. I wish that all religions would realize it and let each other be. It is not the end of each religion, but we are talking about the same God. Live and let live. Each has a different view. And it all adds up to the big picture; it is all important.
I went over to the other side during my near-death experience with a lot of fears about toxic waste, nuclear missiles, the population explosion, the rainforest. I came back loving every single problem. I love nuclear waste. I love the mushroom cloud; this is the holiest mandala that we have manifested to date, as an archetype. It, more than any religion or philosophy on earth, brought us together all of a sudden, to a new level of consciousness. Knowing that maybe we can blow up the planet fifty times, or 500 times, we finally realize that maybe we are all here together now.
For a period they had to keep setting off more bombs to get it in to us. Then we started saying, “we do not need this any more.” Now we are actually in a safer world than we have ever been in, and it is going to get safer. So I came back from my near-death experience loving toxic waste, because it brought us together. These things are so big. As Peter Russell might say, these problems are now “soul size.” Do we have soul size answers” YES!
The clearing of the rain forest will slow down, and in fifty years there will be more trees on the planet than in a long time. If you are into ecology, go for it; you are that part of the system that is becoming aware. Go for it with all your might, but do not be depressed. It is part of a larger thing.
Earth is in the process of domesticating itself. It is never again going to be as wild a place as it once was. There will be great wild places, reserves where nature thrives. Gardening and reserves will be the thing in the future. Population increase is getting very close to the optimal range of energy to cause a shift in consciousness. That shift in consciousness will change politics, money, energy.
After dying, going through my near-death experience and coming back, I really respect life and death. In our DNA experiments we may have opened the door to a great secret. Soon we will be able to live as long as we want to live in this body.
After living 150 years or so, there will be an intuitive soul sense that you will want to change channels. Living forever in one body is not as creative as reincarnation, as transferring energy in this fantastic vortex of energy that we are in. We are actually going to see the wisdom of life and death, and enjoy it. As it is now, we have already been alive forever.
This body, that you are in, has been alive forever. It comes from an unending stream of life, going back to the Big Bang and beyond.
This body gives life to the next life, in dense and subtle energy.
This body has been alive forever already.
Nikolaj Notovitch, a Russian politician, was born in 1858 in Crimea. In his youth, he spent a lot of time studying religion and perhaps this could be one of the motives that after the war, in 1878 he decided to travel and collect spiritual knowledge. He visited India and his primary interest was the study of local culture and customs. The route of his journey was through the Caucasus to Afghanistan, then today's Pakistan and Kashmir to Ladakh, where he stayed for the longest. He returned to Russia via Turkestan and Karakorum.
On his way frequently visited Buddhist monasteries, and so it happened that in a monastery in Karby learned that throughout India and Tibet exists the living memory of a saint, called Saint Issa, whose fate is remarkably similar to Jesus. In Srinagar there is indeed a grave, which allegedly deposite his remains. Issa said he came to Kashmir from Judea. Notoviče was interested of this information, enough to completely determine the objective of pilgrimage.
After Karby he learned that there were no manuscripts of Issa: they could stay in Tibet. Here, he visited many monasteries, looking for any information about the prophet Issa. Mostly he did not learn too much, but could not escape his attention that virtually in all lay monasteries many texts stay quite freely, covered with a thick layer of dust.
In the Lamayuru monastery Notovitch received the information that the texts about Issa could be kept near Leh, the capital of Ladakh.
Finally, in the buddhist convent Hemis of Leh he learned that the texts were there, but they must be found. So, if he’ll come later, he will be able to see them. Notovitch left the monastery but considered a pretext to come back: he had an accident that resulted in his leg being broken. This gave him the unscheduled opportunity to stay awhile at the Hemis convent, enough to locate a Tibetan translation of the legend about Issa and carefully noted in his carnet de voyage over two hundred verses from the document known as "The Life of St. Issa."
After his return to Russia, he chronologically arranged the text. However, there was much controversy about the authenticity of the document. Notovitch was aware of the great historical and religious values of the text and assumed that the Church should welcome the historical evidence of the presence of Jesus' person in Tibet.
Church attitude, on the contrary, was negative. First Notovitch turned to the Archbishop of Kiev Platonova, which recognized the importance of the discovery, but he tried to talk the issue of the text.
In Paris, Notovitch met with Cardinal Rotellim, which said that the text release was premature. At last, Notovitch was accused of creating a hoax and was ridiculed as an imposter. In his defense he encouraged a scientific expedition to prove that the original tibetan documents existed.
Notovitch knew that in Paris lived a man who would be interested in the text, and asked for M. Jules Simon to arrange a meeting with him. So it happened that he met Joseph Ernst Renan (1823-1892), a famous author of Jesus' biography. He really was interested of Notovič discovery, but Notovitch got the distinct impression that it wanted to empower Renan to steal all the credit. The excuse was because the text was partially modified and the book release in French waited until after Renan death to avoid unnecessary disputes.
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 1925, 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. Issa.
About 14 years later, these texts was sawn by Elizabeth Caspari, which was probably the last one who saw them.
Infact, we don't have later signs of direct contact with the main text, but it is not surprising, since Ladakh was closed to foreigners until 1974. The most important factor was, in addition to the general disorder in the library, the legitimate fear of losing to the lamas texts.
Indeed, it was noted that the area went through people who also like to inquire about the texts, and if any found, could try to empower them.
Notovitch book, which became extremely rare over the years, inspired, in the late 70th, Sami, spoused Bock, from the U.S., to track the footsteps of Jesus. Unfortunately, the manuscript of Jesus' biography is no longer in Ladakh. At least in the claimed librarians. However, it is equally possible that it could not or would not be found.
After Tibet was attacked by Chinese troops, which are pushed to Ladakh, there was a diplomatic dispute between India and China: both parties decided to address the exploration of old documents. Selection of documents was entrusted by F. Hassnain. In this work only the desired documents are found, but also many references and reports about Jesus and his work in Kashmir.
In "Jesus lived and died in Kashmir" are reproduced some parts of the Notovitch manuscripts about Issa history:
"A beautiful boy was born in the country of Israel and God spoke through the mouth of this child explaining the insignificance of the body and the greatness of soul.
The divine boy, whom they named Isa, began to speak as a child about the one indivisible God, urging the misplaced masses to repent and be cleansed of the sins they had committed.
From all parts people flocked to hear him and were amazed upon the words of wisdom that emerged from his mouth child; the Israelis claimed that this baby lived in the Holy Spirit.
When Issa reached the age of 13 years, a time when one must take an Israeli woman, the house where his parents earned the bread, through a modest work, began the meeting point of rich and noble people who wanted to have young Issa by-law, because he was known everywhere for his edifying discourses in the name of the Almighty.
Then Issa secretly disappeared from his parents' house, leaving Jerusalem, and walked with a caravan of merchants to Sindh (Pakistan), with the aim of improving the God's knowledge and studying the laws of the great Jubilee.
At 14, Jesus had gone through the entire Sindh and the devotees of the Jain god implored him to stay between them, but he left, walking to Jagannath (one of the holy cities of India), where he was received with great joy by the priests of Brahma, who taught him the Vedas, to save the people through prayer, to expel the evil spirit of the human body and return to this human form.
Jesus lived six years traveling the holy cities of Jagannatha, Rajagriba, Benaíes and others in a state of peace with the Vaishyas and Shudras, whom taught the sacred scriptures to."
In "Jesus lived and died in Kashmir" are reproduced some parts of the Notovitch manuscripts about Issa history:
In the manuscripts of Notovitch appears that Jesus won his first antipathies in India, when he spoke about the equality of men for the Brahmins and the enslaved Sudras, who claimed they only would get rid of slavery by death. Jesus refused the invitation of the Brahmins to join his beliefs and preached against them among the Sudras.
So, he severely condemned the doctrine that gives men the right to explore other men, and fought the idolatry too, defending the belief in an only one powerful God. Finally, the priests decided that he should die. Warned by the 'Sudras', Jesus left India and reached Nepal.
After learning the Pali language, he left Nepal and went to the west, through Kashmir and coming to Persia (now Iran), where the priests forbade the people to hear him. As they disobeyed the ban, Jesus was arrested but shortly released afterwards.
At 29, Jesus embarks on its journey back to Israel, arriving at only a year later. From there, Notovitch manuscripts, according to Faber-Kaiser, mingle with biblical texts.
After comparing Issa philosophies as described by Notovitch with the Jesus Christian history and the history of the prophet who came to India and settled in Kashmir after the crucifixion, it's possible to conclude that the three are only one person.
Infact, for Faber-Kaiser, since the beginning of his flight Jesus' goal was to arrive at Kashmir to fulfill a mission: to gather the lost tribes of Israel, which were spread throughout Asia after the Great Schism. According to Kaiser, there are indications that the ten tribes survivors settled almost all in Kashmir, and someone in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The Christian story tells us that Jesus was crucified on a Friday at noon. Before nightfall, already dead, his body was removed from the cross and laid in a burial cave of Joseph of Arimathea, whose entrance was closed with a stone. The following Sunday, Jesus body had inexplicably disappeared, thus fulfilling the prophecy: God's son raised him from the dead. After a brief time on Earth, during which came in contact with his disciples, Jesus ascended into heaven, where is on the right hand of God, the Father.
But against this Christian dogma is the tomb of Srinagar. Andreas Faber-Kaiser relies on two main points to try proving that Jesus didn't die in Palestine, at 33, but in Kashmir, northern India, long after: the circumstances of his martyrdom and the cross references that Jesus lived in India, from 13 to 30 years, period of his life that the Bible doesn't speak about.
The crucifixion occurred on a Friday, the eve of the Jewish Sabbath, which meant download Jesus' body before nightfall.
According to the timetable of the day, the Sabbath began on Friday night and by Jewish law hadn't allowed to leave hanging on the cross a tortured man during the holy day of Shabbat.
Faber-Kaiser argues that the purpose of crucifixion was not an immediate death, but the slow torture bearable for up to four days, especially for a young man and healthy.
Then, a tortured man, who was lowered from the cross-time, would be able to survive if properly treated. This is what happened to Jesus, only subjected to a few hours of torture: he was removed from the cross still alive and, assisted by his friends and disciples in the cave of Joseph of Arimathea, was recovered and managed to escape.
The author of "Jesus lived and died in Kashmir" uses many parts of the Christian history in which there is the evidence that the martyred was still alive when descending from the cross.
The Gospel, according to St. Mark, says that Pilate, who knew that a crucified takes days to die, was surprised to hear the new that Jesus was dead. It also says that Pilate struck Jesus' body with a spear, to verify that was indeed dead, and although he didn't react from the wound gushed an "abundant blood", which doesn't happen in a lifeless body.
The Gospel, according to St. John, notes that the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea was not full of earth, as it was customary among the Jews, but only closed with a stone, leaving in its interior the space to breathe.
Finally, the most recent scientific analysis performed on the Shroud of Turin - the cloth in which Jesus' body was wrapped to be taken off the cross - show that blood on it was impregnated with the blood of a person still alive.
Based on documents collected by Professor Hassnain, it's possible to trace the path that Jesus traveled from Palestine to Kashmir:
"He and his mother, Mary, had to go away from Palestine and leave for a distant country, from country to country. Thomas, one of the disciples of Jesus, accompanied them on the trail. Traces of Jesus were founded in Persia, Afghanistan and in the town of Taxila, in Pakistan. Emerging from Taxila, Jesus, Mary and Thomas flock moved towards Kashmir, but Mary didn't get seeing the 'Promised Land', not supporting more feathers of the long journey. She died in the town of Murree."
"From Murree Jesus entered the Kashmir valley, today until called Yusmarg (Yusu Valley). In Kashmir, Jesus had a wife and children, and still lives in Srinagar Mr. Sahibzada Basharat Saleem, who retains the complete genealogy of his family, from Jesus to him."
The scene of Jesus' death is described in the "Ikmatud Din" book, writed by Shaikh Sa'id al-Sadiq, an author and historian eastern US, who died in 962:
"Jesus, sensing the approach of his death, called his disciple Ba'bat (Thomas) and expressed him his last wish: to build a tomb over his body, in the place where expired."
This tomb is in a shrine named Roza Bal, located in the Khanyar district of the city of Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir. The entrance to the tomb reads the inscription YouzaAsouph. It is believed to be the final resting place of the Prophet named Yuz Asaf (or Issa, the Koranic name for Christ). Many ancient scriptures and some other facts suggest that Yuz Asaf is in fact none other than Jesus himself.
After crucifixion, the first trail of Jesus is found in the Persian scholar F. Mohammed's historical work "Jami-ut-tuwarik" which tells of Christ's arrival in the kingdom of Nisibis (now known as Nusaybin in Turkey) . The same is found in the Imam Abu Jafar Muhammed's "Tafsi-Ibn-i-Jamir at-tubri." Holger Kersten who researched on Jesus being in the sub-continent, found that in both Turkey and Persia there are ancient stories of a saint called "Yuz Asaf" ("Leader of the Healed"), whose behaviour, miracles and teachings are remarkably similar to that of Christ.
More clues are drawn from the Apocrypha. These are texts said to have been written by the Apostles but which are not officially accepted by the Church. The Apocryphal 'Acts of Thomas', for example, tell how Christ met Thomas several times after the Crucifixion. In fact they tell us how Christ sent Thomas to teach his spirituality in India. This is corroborated by evidence found in the form of stone inscriptions at Fatehpur Sikri, near the Taj Mahal, in Northern India. They include "Agrapha", which are sayings of Christ that don't exist in the mainstream Bible. Their grammatical form is most similar to that of the Apocryphal gospel of Thomas.
Then there are more in The Apocryphal Acts of Thomas, and the Gospel of Thomas which are of Syrian origin. In these texts Thomas tells of Christ's appearance in Andrapolis, Paphlagonia (today known as in the extreme north of Anatolia) as a guest of the King of Andrappa. It seems that Christ and Mary then moved along the West coast of Turkey, proof of this could be an old stopping place for travellers called the "Home of Mary", found along the ancient silk route. In his travels through Persia (today's Iran) Christ became known as Yuz Asaf (leader of the Healed). We know this because a Kashmiri historical document confirms that Issa (the Koranic name for Christ) was in fact also known as Yuz Asaf. The Jami - uf - Tamarik, Volume II, tells that Yuz Asaf visited Masslige, where he attended the grave of Shem, Noah's son. There are various other accounts such as Agha Mustafa's "Awhali Shahaii-i-paras" that tell of Yuz Asaf's travels and teachings all over Persia. It seems that Yuz Asaf blessed Afghanistan and Pakistan with his presence also. There are for example two plains in Eastern Afghanistan near Gazni and Galalabad, bearing the name of the prophet Yuz Asaf. Again in the Apocryphal Acts of Thomas, Thomas says that he and Christ attended the Court of King Gundafor of Taxila (now Pakistan), in about 47AD, and that eventually both the King and his brother accepted Christ's teachings. Researchers claim that there are more than twenty one historical documents that bear witness to the existence of Jesus in Kashmir, where he was known also as Yuz Asaf and Issa. For example the Bhavishyat Mahapurana (volume 9 verses 17-32) contains an account of Issa-Masih (Jesus the Messiah). It describes Christ's arrival in the Kashmir region of India and his encounter with King Shalivahana, who ruled the Kushan area (39-50AD), and who entertained Christ as a guest for some time.
The historian Mullah Nadini (1413) also recounts a story of Yuz Asaf who was a contemporary to King Gopadatta, and confirms that he also used the name Issa, i.e. Jesus. There is also much historical truth in the towns and villages of Northern Pakistan to prove that Jesus and his mother Mary spent time in the area. For instance, at the border of a small town called Murree, there is nearby a mountain called Pindi Point, upon which is an old tomb called ‘Mai Mari da Asthan’ or "The final resting place of Mary". The tomb is said to be very old and local Muslims venerate it as the grave of Issa's Mother. The tomb itself is oriented East-West consistent with the Jewish tradition, despite the fact it is within a Muslim area. Assuming its antiquity, such a tomb could not be Hindu either since the Hindus contemporary to Christ cremated their dead and scattered their ashes as do Hindus today.
Between the villages of Naugam and Nilmge, 40km south of Srinagar, is a meadow called Yuz-Marg (the meadow of Yuz Asaf, i.e. Jesus). Then there is the sacred building called Aish Muqam, 60km south east of Srinagar and 12km from Bij Bihara. "Aish" is derived from "Issa" and "Muqam" place of rest or repose. Within the Aish Muqam is a sacred relic called the 'Moses Rod' or the 'Jesus Rod', which local legend says, belonged to Moses himself. Christ is said to also have held it, perhaps to confirm his Mosaic heritage. Above the town of Srinagar is a temple known as "The Throne of Solomon", which dates back to at least 1000BC, which King Gopadatta had restored at about the same time as Christ's advent. The restoration was done by a Persian architect who personally left four inscriptions on the side steps of the temple. The third and fourth inscription read: "At this time Yuz Asaf announced his prophetic calling in Year 50 and 4" and "He is Jesus -- Prophet of the Sons of Israel"! Christ may have travelled to the South of India also, finally returning to Kashmir to die at the age of approximately 80 years. Christ's tomb, lies in Srinagar's old town in a building called Rozabal. "Rozabal" is an abbreviation of Rauza Bal, meaning "tomb of a prophet". At the entrance there is an inscription explaining that Yuz Asaf is buried along with another Muslim saint. Both have gravestones which are oriented in North-South direction, according to Muslim tradition. However, through a small opening the true burial chamber can be seen, in which there is the Sarcophagus of Yuz Asaf in East-West (Jewish) orientation!
According to Professor Hassnain, who has studied this tomb, there are carved footprints on the grave stones and when closely examined, carved images of a crucifix and a rosary. The footprints of Yuz Asaf have what appear to be scars represented on both feet, if one assumes that they are crucifixion scars, then their position is consistent with the scars shown in the Turin Shroud (left foot nailed over right). Crucifixion was not practised in Asia, so it is quite possible that they were inflicted elsewhere, such as the Middle East. The tomb is called by some as "Hazrat Issa Sahib" or "Tomb of the Lord Master Jesus". Ancient records acknowledge the existence of the tomb as long ago as 112AD. The Grand Mufti, a prominent Muslim Cleric, himself has confirmed that Hazrat Issa Sahib is indeed the tomb of Yuz Asaf!
