In 1887, a wealthy Jewish Journalist, named Nicolas Notovitch, traveled to India to study its people and their customs. His travels took him to a Buddhist monastery in the province of Ladakh, which still stands today. During his stay, he was told by a chief Tibetan lama that, in the monastery’s archives, there exist copies of very ancient scrolls relating to the life of Jesus Christ.
The original scrolls were written by Buddhists, in the language of Pali. Around 200 AD, they were transferred to the city of Lhassa, which is now the residence of the Dalai-Lama. Copies were then translated into the Thibetan language and stored in Ladakh. It was with the assistance of a Thibetan interpreter that Nicolas Notovitch was able to translate them into English.
Therefore let us leave the Elementary teachings about Christ and go on to Maturity. Hebrews 6:1
Jesus is known to the Buddhist lamas as Issa, which means ‘master of masters‘. But this name is only known to the chief lamas who have read the scrolls, a doctrine that does not constitute a canonical part of Buddhism. As a result, Jesus, the prophet they call Issa, is not recognized in Tibet as one of the principal saints. So this doctrine is not well known.
And the star they had seen when it rose, went ahead of them, until it stopped over the place where the child was.
Jesus was born Jeshua ben Joseph. Because his bloodline came from the line of King David, he was the heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Israel. So, when he was just a toddler, his parents took him to Alexandria, in Egypt, out of the fear of persecution by the reigning King Herod. There, they stayed with two masters who taught them about what was to become of their son. This holy family lived in Egypt until the death of King Herod, and then returned to their home where they lived among the order of the Essenes.
And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” Matthew 2:14
When Jesus was thirteen years of age, a royal prince of India led him by caravan into the desert. Upon his arrival in India a year later, he was accepted as a pupil. With the intention of perfecting himself, he set about gaining wisdom by studying the Vedas – the most ancient of Hindu scriptures.
Over time, the Brahmic priests tried to drive Jesus out of India because he didn’t agree with all of their ways. So he traveled to a temple in Lhassa where he was given access to sacred manuscripts that were rich in ancient lore. When he finished his studies in the temple schools, he journeyed to Ladakh to live and study in the monastery that existed there at the time.[i]
And the child grew and became strong in Spirit; and he lived in the desert until he appeared publicly to Israel. Luke 1:80
At the age of twenty-five, Jesus began the return journey west and boarded a ship for Greece to study with the masters there. Then he traveled to the holy temple of Heliopolis in Egypt, where he met with seven great sages.
So it was from within the Great Pyramid that Jesus took the vow of the White Brotherhood and his true life mission was revealed to him.
And, when he had passed the first initiation into this brotherhood, he received his very first degree – Sincerity.
When he had passed the tests of Justice, Faith, Philanthrophy, Heroism and Divine Love, Jesus also received those five degrees.
At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and Lighting on him.
While Jesus lived on the Earth, his awareness of his Spirit remained intact. And, although he wrestled with his sub-conscious mind, he learned how to place himself into Timeless Space and command it. When his Spirit prevailed, he received his seventh degree – that of Christ! After receiving this last degree, his baptism was performed and his ministry began.[ii]
He was twenty-nine years old.
