In western Christianity, Jesus Christ is portrayed as white-skinned, but this is not so as H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has indicated:
I must say, Christ has tried to fight your ego. He was born in a very humble family and He was not a white skinned man, no. In your language He was brown, but in Indian language He was black. But, when it comes to spirituality, you just see the enlightened one. You don't see what colour they have, of the skin. It's very, very superficial. But this is one of the enemies of the Western life, I think, which must be conquered.
