Did Jesus Christ Learn Buddhism?


This theory started out with Nikolai Notovich travelling in India, where he discovered an ancient manuscript. The manuscript was translated and it told of a young boy called ‘Isa’ who was born in the 1st century to a poor family in Israel. He came to India when he was 14, where he learned the rules and teachings of Buddhism. He returned to Israel when he was 29. This is interesting because there isn’t any record of Jesus in Palestine, during the period from when he was 14 to 29 years old. Jesus’ teachings were also very similar to that of Buddha’s.

What do you think?

    Wow, that’s quite interesting. And weird to think about, haha. I’ve never heard of this though, I would have thought that something like this would be known to more people. It’s true though, that people are always influenced from one another. Most ideas come from seeing another idea in action, if you really think about it.

    What do you personally think about this topic though?

    It is a really cool blog Ash,
    It made me think…
    Yesterday, in France’s news they talked about religions, and said that in all of them, there is a point that they all share…. Too philosophical for me 🙂

    This film was fascinating! I like the idea that the teachings of Christ were a major shift from Judaic thinking and that Christianity was influenced by the kinder and gentler Buddhist thinkers from the East.

    I read a book, called “spiritual masters” (original in spanish ‘maestros espirituales’)
    where the authors would receive messages from high above masters, between them, Jesus Christ.
    In this book and messages, the own Christ would say that he lived part of his life in east, that he moved there to learn, and later on came back to israel. He also sayd, that the Church Knows about it. But they have hiden this part of his life on purpose, there exist the manuscripts, and they have chosen not to include them on the bible, those texts are acctually part of what the students study to became a priest, just that they don’t share it.
    The book goes further more beyond, saying that Budda and Jesuschrist are the same spirit-son of God- incarneted in different times on earth, that came to teach what was needed according to the different locations and cultures.

    Thanks María Concepción Tabilo Navia for commenting on my blog! What you said was very very interesting but I guess we will never really know what is the truth!

    Knowlege can grow but evertime it ends somewy here it leaves a dot and it cannot grow more until we continue were we stopd. But an idea or a theory it is a seed that continues to grow with no end, its limits is only known for the fantasi, and the fantasy can only be compered with space.. no begining and no end. Theoris and ideas makes us truly grow like a river that never stops floating, and always finds new ways, knowlege is more like a tree, it grows and grows, but like everything it reaches a top, but we all know that the tree cannot grow without water.. And i mean ideas. That is why ideas are always more important

    Yeah, that’s somewhat interesting. This even makes me wish to go back towards the past and find out the truth! But I know it’s impossible. Anyway, thanks for your excellent information!

    Jesus learned from God the father. Buddha learned from the void which actually is empty.I ccan’t stress enough the word nothing because that’s what empty really is. So Buddha knew nothing. Jesus knew salvation. Buddha believed in heavens and Jesus only knew one. Jesus spoke of authority. Buddha spake of nothing. So when it comes to a greater faith, what takes more faith? Believing in nothing or believing in an almight being? That’s personal but something that the Buddha agrees on is silence. Here’s a witty paradox, I’m going to judge Christians by saying they try really hard to have beautiful language to explain what god does. That’s basically judging god. They try and expose what god does as being a magnificent will. You don’t know the will of god even when it happens to you because sooner or later he is going to take it all away.

    Now Buddhists on the other hand believe in Nirvana which is the polar opposite of samsara which is suffering. It is not understood that someone had to shed blood for salvation. it means that one has to sacrifice himself to others in order to escape suffering. That enlightened being then becomes the cure forbsuffering around them.

    Jesus was somewhat narcisist and confident in himself.
    Buddha felt comfortable in nothing.
    Jesus got his words from god.
    Buddha spoke of nothing.
    Example “how does a dog reach nirvana”
    The answer is “NNNNNNNNOOOOO”
