Query: When did Christianity begin... Was Jesus a
When did Christianity begin ... where did Christianity begin... are the most asked queries
on Internet! People often failed to realize that every single religion emanates after an enlightened one! In
the roots of Christianity lay teachings of Jesus Christ. Behind Buddhism lay wisdom of Siddhartha Gautama...
one who became a bodhi... an enlightened one in his
Jainism and Hinduism are never treated as religions... they are more often termed "a way of
life"! The teachings of Hinduism did not develop after an enlightened one... similar is the case with Jainism!
Behind teachings of Jainism stood 24 Tirthankaras (enlightened ones) but primarily teachings of Mahavira... the 24
Tirthankara gained a firm foothold!
In Hinduism initially came Vedas (Hinduism revelations). They were followed by various
Upanishads (treatises). With coming of Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era (God manifest in human form) the
doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was presented to mankind! This single scripture... Bhagavad Gita is considered foremost
of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth!
There is no dearth of scriptures in Hinduism. With sage after sage gaining enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana)... Hinduism has a series of Upanishads (independent treatises) dealing with different aspects of
life. Apart from Vedas, Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita, We also have wisdom of Puranas, Itihasas, Agamas and
The advent of Christianity occurred when people developed faith in teachings of Jesus Christ!
As messages of Jesus Christ spread far and wide... Christianity religion evolved further far and wide! With passage
of time, Christianity evolved to present day status when followers of Christianity started treating Jesus Christ as
son of God!
With advent of Christianity comes the question... Was Jesus a realized human being? Yes... Jesus
Christ gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in his lifetime. The moment he left his mortal frame... the soul atman
of Jesus Christ liberated forever from cycle of birth and death... entering kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in
Hinduism)... a point of no return!
Jesus Christ gaining enlightenment was not easy! To accomplish this feat... a child 13 years
of age stowed on a ship to India. This child after 14 years of studies at Nalanda and Taxila universities of
erstwhile Bharatvarsha (now India) finally became an enlightened one! The missing years in the life of Jesus Christ
(14 to 29 years of age) explain it all!
From very beginning Jesus Christ as a child realized that essence of life laid in scriptures
of Hinduism! The journey to India by Jesus Christ was not by chance. Jesus Christ had prepared well for this
journey! Jesus Christ reaching enlightenment happened in a period of about 12 ~ 14 years! Truthfully...
enlightenment is not that easily gained as most people world over thought!
The meaning of term enlightenment is not clear to most in West! Enlightenment simply meant...
human beings reaching stage of 8.4 millionth manifestation when our soul atman gained absolute purity! Having
gained absolute purity... the need for soul atman to manifest a body further now ceased to exist!
Enlightenment is reaching source of all wisdom contained in cosmos! For an enlightened one
teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita become like ABCD... one becomes knower of all forever... gains omniscience for
all practical purposes! For an enlightened one... earthly bonding carried no further meaning!
An enlightened one is finally free from bondages of manifest worldly life! For an enlightened
one... karma finally reduced to zero. The stage of enlightenment can only be reached by establishing absolute
control over five senses and mind. Furthermore practising absolute celibacy for a period of 12 years in
continuation... human beings finally emancipated forever from cycle of birth and death! A soul is termed atman in
For an enlightened one... preaching to mankind wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is
normal... something one could not do without! Even though most followers of Christianity deny Christian teachings
based on Hinduism but facts are facts. None can neglect this most important fact of Christianity that behind wisdom
of Jesus Christ stood teachings of Bhagavad Gita!
Jesus Christ coming to India... Jesus Christ reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana)... Jesus Christ returning to western world and imparting to mankind whatever he learnt on spiritual path is
what spirituality is all about! Jesus Christ had rightly understood that enlightenment can only be gained by
travelling spiritual path as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
Jesus Christ never taught anything wrong at any stage of life however teachings of Jesus
Christ interpreted by religious practitioners... his truthful followers often contained impurities as they had no
inkling what pure spirituality was all about. Preaching’s in Bible are full of mistakes... often blunders committed
by ignorant translators... commentators... interpreters!
The Christian clergy as of today is absolutely ignorant about path of pure spirituality... so
much so that present Pope would find it difficult to explain the basics of spirituality as laid out in Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism! Path of religion... rituals carried no meaning in spiritual world. No human being could ever
reach God Almighty via path of religion... path of rituals!
In the circumstances... all teachings imparted by Christianity becomes a farce... prime
reason why Christianity awaited coming of Antichrist... one who unveils to mankind fallacies contained in
Christianity. Beyond 2012, Bible spells doom for Christianity. The city of Vatican would never be remembered in
history of mankind as something that gave wisdom to mankind ever!
Jesus Christ was born an ordinary mortal... by following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita
of Hinduism... Jesus Christ finally gained enlightenment in his lifetime! Jesus Christ is no son of God. Jesus
Christ gained enlightenment just as other people in the entire history of mankind. Gaining enlightenment is
difficult but not impossible!
In the entire history of mankind only Jesus Christ gained enlightenment in West.
Comparatively... not hundreds but thousands gained enlightenment in Hinduism! India is spiritual citadel of world
from where emanated every single enlightened being except Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed!
