Christ in India

"So the first thing of Ganesha is that wisdom. And that wisdom we see in the life of Christ. From the very beginning, He was so confident of it that at the age of twelve years He went and talked to these Farsees, means the people who were priests, we still have priests and mullahs and these burgees and all of them, these so called dharma mantandas, all over, but He went and argued with them at that young age and He was just saying, “What are you doing here? What is this? What are you talking? All lip service!” He was discussing and talking to them but His parents were perhaps, were frightened that these people might kill Him so they brought him to India. He came to India for wisdom. I don't know where is that wisdom missing now from Indians, but must be that country was full of wisdom when He came and stayed in India and we have lots of memories about Him, even the King Shalivahana met Him, is described in his book that he met a man in Kashmir who was very saintly and he asked Him, “What's your name?” He said, “My name is Issa.” See now, imagine - Issa. ‘I’ (PRONOUNCED ‘EE’, EESA) is the word used in the Vedas for the Adi Shakti. 'Sa' means with. He said “My name is Issa.” He said, “From what country do You come?” He said, “I come from a country which is foreign to Me and this is My country.”
(H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Christmas 1992)

"There are lots of theories about His death, but actually He resurrected Himself and then He went down to India and settled there with His Mother. The after-period of His Resurrection is not described in any books as such, but in the, one of the Puranas, written about Shalivahana, one of the kings of dynasty I belong to, has met Christ in Kashmir, and he asked Him, "What's Your name?" He said, "My name is Issa.” And he then he asked Him also that: "From which country You come, which place?" He said: "I come from a country which is foreign to you and to Me, and now I'm here in My own country."
(H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Easter 1991)

"...One day, Shalivahan, the chief of the Sakyas, went into the Himalayas. There, in the Land of the Hun (Ladakh, a part of the Kushan empire), the powerful king saw a man sitting on a mountain, who seemed to promise auspiciousness. His skin was fair and he wore white garments.
The king asked the holy man who he was. The other replied: 'I am called a son of God, born of a virgin, minister of the non-believers, relentless in search of the truth.' The king then asked him: 'What is your religion?' The other replied, 'O great king, I come from a foreign country, where there is no longer truth and where evil knows no bounds. In the land of the non-believers, I appeared as the Messiah. But the demon Ihamasi of the barbarians (dasyu) manifested herself in a terrible form; I was delivered unto her in the manner of the non-believers and ended in Ihamasi's realm.'
'O king, lend your ear to the religion that I brought unto the non-believers: after the purification of the essence and the impure body and after seeking refuge in the prayers of the Naigama, man will pray to the Eternal. Through justice, truth, meditation and unity of spirit, man will find his way to Isa in the center of light. God, as firm as the sun, will finally unite the spirit of all wandering beings in himself. Thus, O king, Ihamasi will be destroyed; and the blissful image of Isa, the giver of happiness, will remain forever in the heart; and I was called Isa-Masih.' After the king heard these words, he took the teacher of the non-believers and sent him to their pitiless land." (Bhavisya Purana 19:21-33)

"During this time Hazrat Yuz Asaf having come from Bait-ul Muqaddas [the Holy Land] to this holy valley proclaimed his prophethood. He devoted himself, day and night, in [prayers to] God, and having attained the heights of piety and virtue, he declared himself to be a Messenger [of God] for the people of Kashmir. He invited people [to his religion]. Because the people of the valley had faith in this Prophet, Raja Gopadatta referred the objection of Hindus to him [for decision]. It was because of this Prophet’s orders that Sulaiman, whom Hindus called Sandeman, completed [the repairs of] the dome. [The year was] Fifty and four. Further, on one of the stones of the stairs he [Sulaiman] inscribed: ‘In these times Yuz Asaf proclaimed his prophethood,’ and on the other stone of the stairs he also inscribed that he [Yuz Asaf] was Yusu, Prophet of the Children of Israel.
I have seen in a book of Hindus that this prophet was really Hazrat Isa, the Spirit of God, on whom be peace [and salutations] and had also assumed the name of Yuz Asaf. The real knowledge is with God. He spent his life in this [valley]. After his departure [his death] he was laid to rest in Mohalla Anzmarah. It is also said that lights of prophethood used to emanate from the tomb of this Prophet. Raja Gopadatta having ruled for sixty years and two months, [then] died…"
(Mullah Nadri, Tahrik-i-Kashmir (History of Kashmir), 1420CE)

"Departing from that town, he visited several other towns preaching to the people. At last he reached the capital city of Kashmir. Having settled there, he called all people towards the Kingdom of God. He stayed there in Kashmir till the last day of his life. At the moment [of his death] he called one of his disciples, who was known among the people by the name of Yabid. This disciple had served his master with much devotion and had obtained a high status in the spiritual succession.
Now making his will, Yuzasaph said, 'Now at this last moment my spirit is ready to fly towards the Holy One. It is necessary for all of you to follow the Commandments of God. None should go towards the untruth leaving the truth. All of you should adhere to the prayers and hold fast to the truth.' After saying this, he breathed his last. Dear readers, much wisdom is contained in this story. Understand the hidden wisdom and follow moral and spiritual teachings so that desires for the material world are destroyed from your hearts." (Qisa Shazada Yuzasaph wo hakim Balauhar, p.131)
