Kati Roby | 3 comments I’m not really sure how to do this, but it was recently brought up to me that some scholars believe that Jesus spent some of his adolescence and his ‘lost years’ in India learning the teachings of Buddhism and then incorporated so of those things into his own repertoire, if you will. Does anyone have any knowledge or information about this? Or have heard of any other theories about Jesus’ lost years?

There are lots of theories out there on that, including that he went to India and learnt from Yogis and Hinduism and gained the knowledge of Ancient India. But nothing concrete...It is odd how the Bible mentions nothing of his middle years - there's a big gap there...Almost as if it got edited out...

Then again I'm still 50/50 whether the man even lived (or at least a man we would remotely recognize according to the story) as per this historical authenticity of Jesus thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Kannan Sv | 1 comments Yes. There is popular belief about hidden or lost years of Jesus were spent in India. He learnt spiritualism, Yoga and ancient knowledge from Himalayan Yogis and monks. These theories popularly pertinent with both Hindu and Buddhist monks since Himalayas is spiritual hub of the India's religious wisdom.

But everything remains as undisclosed facts and debates.

You could look into following links(books and videos) for more ideas and informations:

B. | 245 comments There is an interesting book actually called Jesus Lived In India by Holger Kersten. Some critics say that its based on nonsense, but without any historical documents outside of what the author presents, read it for yourself and see what it is you are willing to believe.

Even as a Christian, it makes way more sense to me that Jesus spent time in India learning yogic/Hindu traditions, taught these traditions, which would have pissed of the Pharisees. It also makes more sense that he didn’t die on the cross but put himself in a yogic state that allowed him to appear dead, thus allowing him to revive himself days later and disappearing back to India to live his life.

If you read his messages in the Bible, they sound very close to what the dharma of Buddhism and Hinduism are, rather than what has been taught to us by churches. It’s also interesting that St. thomas or Didymus(Jesus’ twin) moved to India-this is the most ancient form of Christianity practiced in Asia-St Thomas Christians, oddly enough, practice a faith that is strikingly similar to Hinduism...they even celebrate Hindu holidays with their neighbors....curious.

I would recommend reading up on Hinduism, Gnosticism, Buddhism and the book mentioned above. I believe Jesus likely lived in India.

Agree with you on that part at least - there seems to be loads of cross-over from the Eastern faiths of Buddhism, Yoga and especially Hinduism into Christianity/the Bible.

Maybe Gnosticism is the bridge between the Eastern Faiths and modern (Western/Roman) Christianity?

B. | 245 comments James, agree completely with Gnosticism being the bridge!

Kati Roby | 3 comments Thanks, fellas! This has already given me a good place to start my research. I also always thought it odd that there was such a ‘gap’. Do any of you know if there’s anything mentioned about them in the books that were denied entry into the Bible?

I would read everything by Elaine Pagels-she is an amazing author and researcher. Her Gospel of Thomas was really great.

Many of the Gnostics believed in the concept of Sophia or the feminine divine wisdom-in Hinduism the feminine divine is very important as well. I’ve read just about every book I can on Gnosticism and I’m working on a number of Hindu and Buddhist texts(both sacred texts and opinion/scholarly texts)...people like Pagels have suggested a connection in her works, but I have simply seen similar themes and language used throughout eastern dharma religions and Gnosticism.

Hope this helps! Have fun 😉

M.P. Gunderson | 3 comments I believe the whole narrative of Jesus in India was originally motivated by Nicholas Notovitch, the Russian scholar, who said he discovered a scroll in Hemis India, one that detailed Jesus' stay in Hemis with the Buddhists. Max Muller was unable to verify the ancient text; it was believed to be stolen, so the speculation continues, though a swami from India also claims to have seen the text.

From my standpoint, I see some apparent links in the canonical Gospels to Buddhism. One is the prodigal son story, which is almost verbatim from the Buddha's writings 500 years prior to Christ. I think this is a major reason scholars speculate about a Buddhist link to Christ. The other idea I had is that the magi were probably from Tibet, since the Tibetan's perennial tradition has been locating new lamas and gurus via divination and astrology (ie, the star of Bethlehem). That modern Christians are so opposed to such practices seems therefore unfounded. The story suggests at least that there is some tradition outside Judaism that was aware of Jesus, a fact which begs a more pluralistic viewpoint on the part of religionists.

You are correct about Notovitch. I agree with your other points as well

Jim (jimliedeka) There's a grave site in Japan that is allegedly the burial place of Jesus. https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/t...
