Jesus After the Crucifixion-India-Evidence to Bridge Between East & West

Did Jesus study Buddhism in Hemis?  Evidence says so.

Today, it has become possible to assert that it is not possible to disprove Jesus’s stay in India, in view of the body of knowledge and evidence India gives us.  No historically reliable source, nor accounts in the Gospels, comment on the years of Jesus’s life between his twelfth and thirtieth years.  It is as if Jesus’ life began only after he turned 30! 

And what of after the crucifixion?  There are many written stories of people having met, touched and heard from Jesus after the crucifixion, even in the Gospels it is so.  He told the disbelieving Thomas, “here touch my wounds and let us eat together so that you know I am not a ghost but am real as you or any of these men and women here”.    Yet, still today, people believe he raised only in spirit, not in body, and then disappeared! 
Here is evidence of how Jesus would have survived his ordeal.

1.      According to modern day doctors and forensic pathologists, it would take a man at least 24-48 hours to die from crucifixion. One would die a slow death, eventually ending in suffocation as the lungs filled up with fluids.

FACT:  Jesus, according to the Gospels, was on the cross for 4 hours, crucified at high noon, brought down before sunset, due to impending Sabbath.  When the sword pierced his side, liquid and blood came out.  Blood/liquid does not move in a dead man.

      2.      To give a man condemned to death, wine and spiced herbs such as myrrh (for pain) and
             poppy, as a narcotic pain relief, was completely in accordance with Jewish custom.  There is a
             plant known as Swallowwort, soma, celandine, asclepias acida or Master Herb / Jewish Herb
             that was such a magical potion, with the property of putting into a cataleptic state resembling
             death.  Best known example of this is in the story of Romeo and Juliet.  This apparent death is
             a comatose state resembling deep sleep, where all signs of life such as respiration, heart beat
             and pulse are no longer noticeable.  It is perfectly feasible to presume that those who loved
             ‘the Messiah’ would try to save him in some manner such as this.

FACT:  In the Talmud of the Jews, “he who went out to be executed was given a small piece of incense in a beaker of wine, so that he might lose consciousness” (Sanh. 43a)

Jesus was given a sponge from Joseph of Arimathea, to quench his thirst.  It was after sucking upon this sponge, that Jesus lost consciousness and was promptly brought down as ‘dead’.

3.       When Jesus was brought to the Sepulchre, there were jars of aloes and myrrh brought into the burial chamber by Joseph of Arimathea for caring for Jesus’s body.  Aloes are given to purge poison and to soothe inflammation, broken skin, rashes and wounds.  Myrrh is given for pain.  Why would these have been brought to a dead man?

4.       Blood – FACT – blood does not flow from a dead man, yet it is said blood and water flowed from Jesus’ side when he was speared between the ribs.  If the Turin shroud is indeed the real thing, then the flowing blood upon the shroud proves that the man who was crucified was still alive.

5.   In Scripture, the prediction was that the Messiah would heal the sick, cure the blind, raise the dead, preach to the wicked, would then be killed, and would rise again. 

It was also predicted that he would preach to and unite the lost tribes of Judah.  Many of these lost tribes were known to have settled in India.  There is an enormous body of evidence that Jesus did indeed go in search of these Judea tribes after crucifixion, which he survived. 

In fact, evidence reveals that he spent most of his life in India, until his demise in his late eighties.  His tomb is still there in Srinagar, Kashmir, and for centuries has been worshipped by the local people as a great Prophets tomb, where miraculous healings have happened. 

Rozabal Tomb, Sringar Kashmir - the final resting place of Jesus, Ysha, Yeshua, Issa, Yuz
The tomb is known as the Rozabal Tomb, and it points East to West as in Judaic traditional burial, rather than North to South as the Muslim people bury.  The Muslim’s claim the tomb belongs to ‘their’ Prophet Yuz (Asaf), which was a name given to Jesus when he visited Persia after the crucifixion.  His teachings are one and same.  Identical in every way.  This Persian Prophet Yuz lived at the same time as Jesus, and followed the path from Judea to India after the crucifixion date.  This same Prophet , after coming to India, was known as Isha, Issa or Ysha to the Indian people who lived during this time line.  He was known as Yeshua to the Jews. 

6.     One such reference in India, refers to Jesus's and Thomas’s visit to the Courts of India, where they met with the local Kings of that period.  At the Court of King Andrapa, on the wedding night of his daughter, the King showed Thomas into the bridal suite to preach to the young couple.  After Thomas had prayed with the couple, everyone present left the bridal suite “but after everyone had left and the doors closed, the bridegroom raised the curtains in the bridal suite to join his bride, and there he saw Jesus speaking with his bride, resembling Judas Thomas, who had just blessed them and left.  The groom said to Jesus “did you not just leave?  How did you leave, and also stay at the same time?”  The Lord replied “I am not Judas called Thomas, I am his brother Yeshua”.  Jesus is documented to have then sat down on the bed asking them to sit down on the chairs before him, and told them “remember my children, what my brother said to you, and unto whom he recommended you…. I am he” (A.Th.8,11).

The power, influence and authority of the Christian/Catholic churches are so strong that the authenticity of canonical teachings cannot be questioned, for critics and skeptics, or people who find great bodies of evidence proving ‘otherwise’ heretical teachings and stories, are condemned and damned as Godless heretics.  Throughout history such persons, have been tortured, killed, muzzled, ostracized and laughed out of society. 
Such is the power of the Church over the mindset of the masses. 
However, God’s truth carries with it a great power that is unstoppable, even by any organization such as this. 
In the Aquarian Gospel of Jesus, authored by the disciple Levi, there are numerous accounts of Jesus’s life in India, that correspond to the life of the Holy man known as Issa, and Yuz.  According to this Gospel, the Indian Royal Prince Ravanna of Orissa, met the twelve year old boy known as Yeshua, in a Temple in South India, where he hears him debate.  Prince Ravanna, being impressed with this young Davidic Prince, brings Jesus (Yeshua) to the Temple of Jagannatha in Puri (Orissa) where he is accepted as a student, granting him an opportunity to deepen his studies of the ancient scriptures. 

It is interesting to note, that historians find no mention of Jesus, or of his miracles, or the extraordinary events that surrounded his life, nor any mention of his childhood and adolescence, which are totally ignored in the known Gospels.  In fact, even in the accounts about his famed public life, only a few hours and days of trials and teachings are given, for the full life of a man on earth.  Yet the Christian world, still disregards the collection of evidences surrounding Jesus’s life, that are outside of the Judaic/Christian world.  Ernst Kasemann, a historian, who specialized in the New Testament, summarized the results of his research into the matter, by saying ”one is overwhelmed by how little of the accounts about Jesus’ life in the New Testament can be authenticated”.  Theologian Bultmann continues “the character of Jesus, the clear picture of his personality and life, have faded beyond recognition.”  Professor Fida Hassnain, is wealth of knowledge on the life of Jesus in Kashmir.  He was a Scholar of Indology and Archaeology from Kashmir India, and Director of the Kashmir Research Center for Buddhist Studies, and a member of the International Conference for Anthropological Research in Chicago.  He said “not until one establishes an irrefutable foundation for the historical facts of Jesus, will one be able to ascertain whether or not it is possible that he did live in India, survive crucifixion and did not depart to heaven on an ascension cloud, but rather returned to India and died at an old age.  Without such a foundation, it is indeed hard to divert the current thinking pool of almost 2,000 years of deeply rooted tradition”.

Section 2 - features the inside of the tomb showing the entrance level. The carved footprints (click attached link) of the Prophet Yuz/Issa/Jesus can be seen in this section.  In India, when a Prophet, Saint or great Guru dies, they take a stone casting of his feet. Note the raised bumps on the feet where the wounds of a crucified man are shown.  There can be no doubt that this is one and the same person!
One must examine all the evidence available if one is to make a fair assessment of  the historical Jesus.  Without examining all sides of the coin, one simply cannot believe that there in only one side of the coin, and it is the side that everyone has been believing for centuries past, based upon a few weeks of this man's life written into a Scriptural Book, known as The Bible. 
Click links below (click below and then click the link that comes up on your screen) to watch amazing footage of inside the Tomb of Jesus, in Kashmir!

Yet, indeed there is proof that there is another side to this coin, to the story, and to the life and person known as Jesus.
There is evidence that Moses lived and travelled in Kashmir, and his Tomb and Rod (staff) still exists there today, worshipped and protected by the locals.  For when Exodus happened, in which the Israelites came out of slavery in Egypt, they went in search of the land of their forefathers, the blessed land which had been promised by God to their people.  Was this land “the land of plenty” Kashmir in India?          “and the Lord said unto him – This is the land which I swore unto Abraham, Issac and Jacob saying, I will give unto your seed, I have caused thee to see it with thin eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.  So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord, and he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Beth-peor, but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day” (Deuteronomy 34, 4-6).
The literal meaning of Beth-peor is “a place that opens” for instance a valley that opens out into a plain.  The River Jhelum in the North of Kashmir is called “Behat”, and the small town of Bandipur where the valley of the Jhelum River opens out into the broad plain lake of Walar was once called Pehat-Poor.  Beth-peor became Behat-poor, which is now Bandipur in the region of Tehsil Sopore, 80 kms south of Srinagar, the capital of the very beautiful land known as Kashmir.  18 kms northeast of Bandipur lies the small village of Hasba, or Hasbal, which is referered to as Heshbon in the Bible (Deuteronomy 4,46), and is mentioned in connection with Beth-peor and Pisga.  On the cliffs of Pisga (now Pishnag) North of Bandipur and 1.5kms NE of the village Aham-Sharif, there is a famous spring, famous for it’s healing quality.  The valley and plains are called the plains of Moab, ideal pasture land. 
Because the Indian scriptures known as The Vedas are certainly the oldest scriptures known to mankind, it would seem logical that accounts of the great flood of Noah, would also be found in the Veda’s.  The flood appears as a legend in Hindu scriptures: 
“True to the predictions of the Lord, the Earth was populated by Man, and the progeny of Adamis and Hevas soon became so numerous and wicked that they were no longer able to live in peace with one another.  They forgot God and even rebelled against Him.   The Lord thereupon decided to punish His creatures in a manner to serve as an example for generations to come.  He looked for the man most worthy of being saved for the preservation and continuation of the species.  His choice was Vaivasvata, and he let him know his will.  On the holy bank of the River Virim, Vaivasvata saved a small Fish that later proved to be an Avatar (incarnation of God).  The Fish warned the just man that the end of the world was near, and that all of its inhabitants were doomed.  God, in the form of the Fish, then ordered Vaivasvata to build a ship for himself, and his family.  When the ship was ready, with the seeds of every plant, and pair of every species of animal, the big rains began, and the rivers flowed.  Then a great Fish with a horn on His head placed itself at the bow of the ark, and the holy man fixed a sail to the horn.  The Fish then pulled the ship safely through the furious elements, and the ship landed intact on the peaks of the HImalayas (cf. Genesis 6). 
The number of days of the flood accords with the number in the accounts of Moses (40 days).The great flood, was said to have been in “Sint”, which is quite simply Sindh (the old name of the mighty river to which the entire subcontinent of India owes it’s name Indus).  Sindh-Induas, is the most powerful river to be crossed in order to arrive in India.  Running from North to South, if flows through India, Pakistan, Tibet, Mongolia, and West Iran into the formidable delta on into the Arabian Sea”.  “The other side of the flood” Abraham’s place of origin, could certainly have been the land Kashmir. 
Here are some amazing villages, tribes, regions, estates and geographical terms of the Old Testament, that are almost identical to the places of Kashmir and it’s surroundings.  Surely this proves my point, that the lost Tribes of Judah, after the Exodus, came to Kashmir and settled in the land of milk of honey:

The inhabitants of Kashmir are different from other Indian’s in all respects.  Their appearance is fair, they are tall with green or blue eyes, their way of life, morals, character, clothing, behavior, language, customs, habits are typically Israelite in origin.   Though the white robes famed to have been the chosen clothing of Jesus and his disciples, was originally thought to have been because of his Essene connection, in fact, in India, house holders (married people), Priests and Teachers wore  and still wear white robes. 
Indeed, many of the teachings of Christ, are reminiscent of those of Krishna and Buddha of India.  It is easy to see that Jesus’s un-orthodox teachings, may indeed have been those he was exposed to during his travels in Indus as a young man, preparing for his Messianic destiny.

What our duty?

1. To set an example for others;
2. To build a bridge for people of all faiths to cross so that entrance to the Kingdom,
we know as Goloka Vrindavan may be accessible to all;
3. To teach spiritual tolerance;
4. To be kind to all living beings;
5. To have faith, and to be fixed on our path, to realize the Kingdom within, so that
we might have the strength to bring others with us;

Are we walking our talk? Do we reach out to others in a way that is accessible to them?
Can we see the good in others, or do we let our judgements cloud our vision?

For me, as a practicing Vaisnavi, the story of Jesus, albeit his teachings, held great fascination for me! For, as years went by within the Hare Krishna movement, I would become jaded by the judgements and narrow mindedness, even, fanatical mentality and thinking of some devotee's around the world.
I was no longer searching for a path to follow, since the Ancient Vedic Literature has it all, yet as a human being, there was still something more that I needed to realize.

I started to read some early Gnostic documents wherein Jesus speaks like a very healed Vaisnava. I learned to adore his messages of tolerance, abstinence, devotion and his mantra "fast from the world"... much like our BV. Sridhar Maharaja said 'die to live". Without accepting the mood of extreme tolerance, humility and a total withdrawal from the objects of the senses, the highest dreams of entrance to the Kingdom seemed almost impossible. Of course, we know we have mantra and lineage to fall back upon, however, don't they also teach us that in order to enter our eternal svarup, we must withdraw from the pleasures and distractions of this world, as a turtle draws back into it's shell to find shelter there.

When I first suggested to Gurudeva that I would be writing a book about the life of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, I half expected a good slap, from both him and Madhava Maharaj! But instead I received confirmation and even blessings for the project, and he told me to present Jesus as a Vaisnava.

DOCUMENTED FACTS ABOUT JESUS - things you might not know

1. He was a vegan his whole life, as were his 5 siblings, his Mother, Uncles and

2. He was visited by 3 Kings from India. One from South India, one from mid-India and
one from the North. They were told by their astrologers to go search out this rare star
and offer alms to a King who would be born - it would give them sukriti. So Jesus's
family became connected to India at birth;

3. At 13 yrs old after his sacred ceremony in Jerusalem, he was sent to South India to
study at the palace of one of these Kings. At that time, the 4th Shankaracharya was
living in Puri, and gave him residence in his ashram for some time, where they
discussed spiritual philosophy. Jesus visited the Jagannath Temple daily where he
took prasad and would meet Priests and Brahmins and discuss Bhakti.

4. He visited Northern India, and met the King of Kashmir, he studied with the Buddhists
and people were amazed by his learning.

5. Upon returning to Judea, Jesus became "the Messiah". His time in India was fulfilled.
He went there to become worthy of the label "Messach". He took his job very
seriously, and fasted and prayed intensely for years before taking on the mission of
helping others to enter the Kingdom. He took a Guru, both in India, and in Judea.

6. After his Crucufixion, which he survived, he and his wife and family fled to Alexandria,
and eventually to France (then known as Gaul), England, Ireland, Turkey and ultimate
Kashmir where he lived out his days and eventually died in Srinagar where is tomb
still resides. The locals named him Isa, or Ysha, and the tomb is said to be a great
Muslim Saint called "Yus Asaf" which was a name given to him whilst he walked
through Persia. He became famous there, and many Muslims know that Yus Asaf's
teachings are identical to those Jesus spoke in Judea. His tomb is known by the
locals to be Jesus Christ. Moses is also buried in Kashmir.

7. The Messiah came to help everyone. He was magnanimous. He did not come only
for the Jewish people, but for all people, and he wanted to bring the vision of the
Kingdom of God (Goloka Vraj) to everyone, without regard for qualification (sounds
like our Gurudeva!). Very merciful. His other mission, as Messiah, was to reach out
to the 12 lost tribes of Judah and preach to them. Many historians agree that at least
8 of these lost tribes were in India. Hence Jesus searched out those tribes, and lived
among them, preaching until he died in his late 70's.

8. He was indeed a Royal King by birth. He was the grandson of King Herod the Great,
his father was the Royal Prince Antipater, and mother was Mary. When Herod had his
eldest son killed, Mary fled and was promptly married off to Joseph and disguised as
a simple lady, despite being a Royal Princess, from both marriage and birth right.
Jesu was indeed the awaited for Messiah. His 2,000 year old message is a testimony
of his power. Else his message would have died with him. Yet still millions flock to his
teachings for guidance on how to live. Herod the Great was only half Jewish and
wanted more than anything to be accepted by the Jewish people as their King. Yet
they would never accept him. Hence, he married his son and heir Prince Antipater to
the Royal Davidic Princess, and daughter of the Head of the Jerusalem Temple, Mary,
inorder that he would create a grandson who would indeed become the King and ruler
for Rome and the Jewish people. Hence Jesus was known as the King of Jew's, for
indeed it was his birth right to be both King of Rome (since he was son of Antipater)
and also the King of Judea, since he was the long awaited Messiah from the lineage
of David.

9. He was married and had three children with his wife Mariamne, known as Mary
Magdalene. She was a Princess from the lineage of Benjamin, and the houses of
David and Benjamin had interbred for centuries, since both had Royal lines.
She was a wealthy woman in her own right, and she funded all Jesus's 'tours'.
She was a healer, teacher, and master in her own right. She was by some,
considered to be the 2nd Messiah, which had been expected at that time. Yes,
not one Messiah, but TWO were expected.

My book will reveal all! COMING SOON - 2012~

Jesus taught me, how I can be a Devotee, whilst also being a good human being. How to accept others where they are at. How to love and look for the good in others. How to let go of the judgments which plague our society and prevent Bhakti (pure devotion). How to live. How to speak. How to withdraw from the world of distractions, for a greater cause. How to heal and help others when they are in need. He was indeed a great devotee. Still 2,000 years later, he is the most famous Saint in the world. His message has survived, despite his life and times having been changed and 'cleaned up' by the Church, inorder that an image could arise, for their power and greed was indeed great! But this was and is not who Jesus was. He is one of us. Though he was not born in December, as books tell us, actually he was born under the star of the lion (leo) in end of July/beginning of August, per Judaic laws of that time. If he had been born in December, he would indeed have been stoned to death, as his birth would not have been sanctioned by the laws of the Torah. Still, since everyone is talking about Jesus and thinking of this personality, this time of year is indeed special, and we can definitely learn so much from his life and teachings, on how to be a good person, whilst being Vaisnava's. His example is spotless. He was without stain indeed!

Below is an article I wrote for my PhD study I am undertaking, tying in a bridge between our religions. No matter what your choice of belief, our paths are one and the same. We all worship the same One God, and we are all on a path back to the same Kingdom. Our duty is to accept people, understand them, make friends with them, and build trust. Then we can make devotee's everywhere we go, and build bridges so that all may be so lucky was we are!

Happy Christmas my lovely brothers and sisters,

May the light of our Guru Parampara, and the love of Jesu very quickly remove the darkest ignorance from within us, so that we may enter that eternal Kingdom which Jesu and so many others have told us, is our destiny! We are on that path, and we are blessed.

Every lifetime a Prophet, Avatar, Guru, Teacher or Incarnation of God, comes to revive devotion in the hearts of the masses. Each teacher of devotion comes to give one message "to love God, to worship Him and to attain His Kingdom, which is within your own heart". We are taught to have reverence for all life, to respect the differences that are there within each of our own individuality trees. We each of us have the free will to follow, or not follow, any path of our choosing. Yet despite the teachings of love, humility and non-violence that is the backbone of all religious paths, more wars are fought over belief, or rather the differences of belief, than on any other subject matter. I can’t help wondering what went wrong? Is there a flaw in the system of religion, or is it a human trait to ‘need’ everyone to think and believe the same? Even at the expense of breaking the commandment “thou shalt not kill”.
In my research into the lives of Saint Jesus and his various disciples and family members, I found some interesting evidence to show that the cause of this imbalance is coming due to the male domination that has occurred in these last 2,000 years of religious marketing and promotion. From what I have learned, it seems that the story begins after the Crucifixion of Saint Jesus, in what looks like, a battle for power and leadership between the disciples, Rome, the Gentiles and Judeans. It began with the story of Mary Magdalene.

The natural rhythm in religion was changed by the institution created around the story of St. Jesus’ life. The scales tipped in favor of a male dominated ‘business of religion’. Prior to the life of St. Jesus, the Divine Feminine (Goddess) was worshipped openly by everyone. The Jews worshipped and adored Shekina, the Hindu’s would give offerings to Goddess Radha sitting at the left-hand of Krishna (God). The pagans worshipped many various goddesses under many names, as did Rome, Greece, China and other nations. So what happened?

The institute of Rome created a God out of a man. They made him impotent by claiming that he had no wife, nor any heirs to his throne. St Jesus was the expected Messiah of a long-line of famous Kings that date back to King David. What King takes no wife and bears no heirs? It is their primary concern to keep the lineage alive, especially such an important line as his. Mariamne Magdalene was a Princess in the line of Benjamin. For centuries both the line of David and Benjamin would inter-marry in order to keep their bloodlines pure. They knew for centuries before the time of Jesus, that a Messiah would take birth within their lineage, since it stated in the Song of Songs “from the line of David and the seed of Jesse will the Messiah come”.

There are arguments for the marriage of St Jesus to Mary Magdalene, as well as against. In truth no one will ever know what transpired, one can only read the evidence and choose with one’s level of faith, what is true and what is not. Does St Jesus being married change his position as King, or reduce his status as Messiah in any way? Does it make him any less Divine, or his teachings any less potent?
Since man and woman are made in the image of God and Goddess, it makes sense that even a God has a woman at his side, albeit a Goddess. Therefore, my belief and feeling is that St Jesus is not undermined by being a house-holder, married with children. If anything, it would be against his nature to be celibate, since he was a Jewish Rabbi by birth, as well as a King and the Expected Messiah. It was unheard of for a Jewish Rabbi to not marry.

Let us examine the evidence for a moment so I can prove my point. 2,000 years ago in ancient Judea, which is now known as Israel, a bridal ritual would take place in September and again in Spring before Passover. There would be two marriage celebrations. The first would happen in Autumn. Part of that first marriage rite would be for the woman to anoint the newly wedded husbands feet with oil. Then the married couple would try to conceive a child through the winter until the second bridal marriage in Spring. If the young woman had indeed conceived a child, then the marriage would be considered complete and the second marriage would go ahead, with the same ritual of completion, where the woman would again anoint the husband with oil.

However, if the woman did not conceive a child after the first marriage rite, in Spring there would be no second bridal ritual. The couple would have to stop having intimate relations until September, and then again try for a child. If no child was conceived during this time, the woman would be considered barren, and the man would then take a second wife. However, if she did conceive, the second bridal marriage would take place, culminating in the ritual of anointing with oil. Let us consider for a moment how this relates to a King. A King who is without heirs was considered weak and the future of his Kingdom insecure.

Mary Magdalene is documented as having anointed Jesus’ feet two times. This is written in the New Testament as well as the other Gospels, which were famously omitted from the current Bible. Let us consider for a moment the time and circumstance. In Judea at that time no woman would ever be allowed to anoint a man in a bridal manner unless a marriage was taking place. It would be against the laws of that time period. No man, especially no Rabbi, what to speak of a Prince in the line of David, not to mention that he was the expected long waited Messiah, would ever allow any woman to give bridal ritual worship to him, in public, unless they were indeed marrying.

According to the Gospels of Phillip, Mary, Thomas and other ancient books found in Nag Hammadi with the Dead Sea Scrolls, Jesus “loved Mary over all others, and would often kiss her on the mouth”. So once again, let me reflect, would any man of Jesus’ station kiss a woman on her mouth, in public, unless he was married to her? It just would not have happened. Again, it does not belittle his Divinity in any way, in fact, it shows that he was a Godly man, for if he had kissed a woman on the mouth, loved her above all others, talked and walked with her in private, as well as accept bridal rituals from her, he would have been tried not as a pretender to the Throne of Judea, but as a man who broke the law and destroyed a woman’s chastity. If he had not married her, no one would have believed him to be the Rabbi the world had waited for. He would have been seen as what would now be known as a philanderer. So this is my argument for the marriage of Mary Magdalene to Jesus.
According to the Book of Revelation, it is the marriage of the Lamb that will finally cause water to flow to the desert. It seems that the “voice of the Bride” was stolen along with her reputation when her story and position as Apostle to the Apostles, and Bride of the Messiah, mother of his vine (lineage) was repudiated and declared heretical by the leaders of the early Roman Church. With her position brought down to the level of prostitute, the church leaders were able to remove her from the picture completely and establish themselves as the authority on the life and teachings of Christ.

In restoring the feminine divine, embodied in the story of Mary Magdalene, it is necessary to re-establish her true identity as Bride and Grail (carrier of Holy Bloodline) rather than prostitute. For to name any woman a whore, when the truth is very different, is an awful transgression of anyone’s life story. The hostility towards women was founded on the position of the church ‘fathers’ who viewed women as morally and spiritual inferior to men. Both Paul and Simon Peter (Cephas) were known to have very strong emotions against Magdalene, which in turn became anti-woman agendas. “I am afraid of Peter for he threatens me and hates our race” Mary Magdalene told Jesus in the Pistis Sophia. Paul insisted that women veil themselves and remain silent and subordinate to their husbands and church. In I Timoth, Paul wrote “let a woman learn in silence with submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or have any authority of men, she is to be silent. For, Adam was formed first, then Eve, and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Woman will be saved only through bearing sons. The head of a woman is a man”. Paul created an argument for removing the spiritual gifts of women from teaching and learning, and this foundation became the backbone for religious thought for many centuries to come. This thinking used the mythical story of Eve as the whipping girl for humanity’s fall from grace, and thereby made every woman on Earth, for all time, guilty of her crimes for being an “Eve”. The same is true of the story of Mary Magdalene. Through her we have all become whores in the DNA belief systems of the religious institutions and men at large, since the only woman worth venerating is a Mother Mary, a woman who forever remained a Virgin, despite having given birth to five known children!

By the end of the second century women were no longer allowed to attend church service at all, and any woman who took on a position of leadership was to be branded a heretic. Paul’s theology makes up half of all orthodox Christian doctrine, whilst Peter (Cephas) takes up the other half. They even debated on whether or not a woman had a soul. The material world, the flesh, the devil and women were all placed together as a source of evil that kept men from attaining spiritual union with God. The slanders against Mary Magdalene was not personal, they did it with the need to subordinate all women to the authority of men. Mary Magdalene, like the mythical Eve in the Garden of Eden, became “every woman”. The Church and early brotherhood would use the story of Adam and Eve to show that it is “women who degrade us”. With the “bully” of these early beliefs, the Inquisition, the “new Church” stamped out all who believed different. Mary Magdalene and her bloodline lineage were considered heretical. Books, artifacts and people were burned brutally in Southern France in acts of ultimate violence against the family of their Savior. The area of Provence, Southern France, had been a refuge for the family of Jesus, including Mary Magdalene and her children, after the crucifixion of Jesus. They were known to have been brought there in a boat, by Joseph of Arimathea, who was a very wealthy and well connected tin miner who travelled to and from that region regularly. This area became the center for free-thought and the cult of Mary Magdalene was everywhere. Some of the first churches were built in this region. The area of St Maxim on the coast of Camargue, was so named after the first Bishop of this region, where the Holy family first arrived. St Maxim was of course Maximus, a close personal friend of Jesus and his family.

So I ask you, what happened to thou shalt not kill? Where is the love, peace and harmony that Jesus came and taught? What about forgiveness and charity? Is not each man and woman free to believe as he believes, and deserving of our love? For surely that is what Jesus came to share with the world. Yet, the Church of Rome at that time, despite all the brutal torture and murder that went on in the name of the peace-loving Christ, was and still is, considered the authority on spiritual belief. They should have been tried and disbanded for all their vicious war crimes committed in the name of their Master. The Institute of Christianity hoped that the story of the marriage of Jesus and Mary, along with their original teachings and bloodline, would be eliminated forever. However hard they tried, the vine would not die.

Groups were formed as the protectors of the Holy bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalene (Grail – san graal – Royal Blood)). Throughout history they kept the secrets and teachings alive, along with the bloodline lineage, by going ‘underground’. They founded secret societies, and commissioned beautiful architecture and symbolic art in many of the Great Cathedrals of the world, that would span the centuries. Hidden within the masons and artists hearts was the true story of the Vine of Judah. Their story became written into history encoded within paintings, writings and novels, such as the Grail stories and many of the most famous fairy tales, as well as the songs of the troubadours. Their story, as well as their bloodline, lives on today, now more than ever, due to the sacrifices made by these great men who would not give up their secrets even under the worst kind of torture, to the last breath.
Now we are so fortunate to have such a vast expanse of knowledge available to us through the internet, and so their story is gradually becoming heard, and the truth has crept through the cracks of time as a hidden weed, when indeed it is a flourishing Vine.

So how does all of this correlate to the corruption and violence that is a global problem these past 2,000 years? In Chapter 4 of the Hebrew Prophet Micah, there is a prophecy of the restoration of Jerusalem, when all nations shall bear their swords into plow shares and be reconciled under God. In Verse 8 is says: “As for you, O Magdal-Eder, watchtower of the flock,
You cry aloud for you have no King
Your former dominion will be restored to you,
For you were forced out of the city and have camped in the open field for too long,
Writhed in agony and almost perished at the hands of your Councellors,
O great manficent tower (Magdal)
Kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem”

Following her ‘exile’ she will be restored, this is the prophecy of many verses in the ancient texts. Mary Magdalene, and the Goddess with Her, into exile they were forced, and now through her story, the Goddess will be restored, and the world will heal, just as promised.
An institution founded upon a lie, upon the heads of women’s fall from grace and position surely must either change or fall. For within each of us as human beings, there is a feminine and masculine side. Just as God has Goddess by His side, so too are we created so. If the masculine side ignores the femininity within his very self, then no balance can there be. The truth of this is to be seen on the pages of history by all the aggression done in the name of furthering a totally male dominated religious cause. The Goddess, along with Her devotees, were stamped out, burned out and wiped out of history by this regime that dominated our global thinking tank and DNA for the past 2,000 years. Now, as we enter the age of Aquarius, we hope that the balance will again be restored, rightfully so, and that Magdalene, along with the Goddess and all that is feminine, may again rule peacefully, side by side, with all that is masculine within this world, so that harmony may again prevail. It is the nature of woman to heal, to love and to nurture, and so, once the veil of seclusion is fully removed, we can hope and pray that a time may come when men will again take council from the wise women, and honor woman from her status as “whore (Magdalene)” and “temptress (Eve)” to that of Mother, lover and ceaseless care-giver.

In conclusion, the restoration of the Feminine Divine is a necessary part of healing the wounded psyche of both the masculine and feminine energies of this world. If Magdalene were to be restored as the Bride of Christ, the risen Jesus would no longer be separated from his Bride, and the Goddess would again be seen restored to Her God. The legends of the Grail protectors believed that the restoration of the wife of Jesus would heal the wasteland and cause the desert to bloom once more. They were also known to believe that a ruler of the Royal House of David, would someday be restored to the Throne of Judea (Israel) and would rule the entire world with peace and justice. In Isaiah II there is a prophecy that when the royal line of David is restored to the Throne of Israel, a Millenium of the reign of God would begin.

So how does one begin healing such a rift in society? Perhaps the ancient Veda’s have the answer.
In the Veda's, the Ancient Scripture of the Sanskrit (mother tongue) language, it teaches us that according to our Sukriti, we will be attracted to a certain form of religion or spiritual practice. Sukriti can be explained as follows. When we do good deeds for another, we get "sukriti" in a spiritual bank account. When we give in charity, help someone in need, bring someone to God's way, heal someone or do some spiritual austerity like fasting on special Holy days, or taking vows of silence for deep introspective prayer, then "sukriti" is added to our spiritual account. According to how large our sukriti account is, that is how deeply we will understand the various paths, and advance towards the highest goal of life. In all cases, it seems to be the ultimate goal of entering the Kingdom of God. The Veda's have a scripture called Srimad Bhagavatam, which is a collection of books from many thousands of years ago. It is known to be the oldest scripture. Within one of these books of the Bhagavatam, there are detailed descriptions of that Kingdom, which we are encouraged so fervently to enter.

It describes how once the soul enters the forests of that Kingdom, also known as Goloka Vrindavan, that one never has to take birth again. The cycle of birth and death is complete, and the soul can live eternally in that beautiful Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is described there has having ever increasing ecstasy at every moment, every day is a like a festival, every step is a dance and every word a song. God and Goddess are at the center of every one’s daily love and life. All the creatures of that world, including the abundant plant life, can speak and are fully conscious, every moment expressing their devotion to the Divine Couple. Once arriving here at this eternal place, it is said that we will have found our true ultimate destination. There is no death, old age, disease or suffering of any kind. God is a young and extremely handsome Prince, rather than an old man sitting on cloud condemning people to heaven or hell. He has many friends, both girls and boys, as well as millions of pets in the forest. The Goddess is a beautiful young Princess, from another part of the 'island' of Goloka. She has many millions of fairy-like girlfriends, who serve Her like best friends. There are wonderful evenings of music and dancing under the moon and stars at night, and they all have forest cottages where they live in harmony with the many millions of friendly animals who grace this Holy place.
It is the goal of our life, no matter what faith we follow, to do our very best to focus our prayer and devotion through daily practice, towards this goal. You can see that in this world, there are so many problems. The happiness that most people experience is fleeting, and the suffering comes and keeps coming. Death is an inevitable fate, and we live in a world of insecurity, where no relationship is permanent. The Kingdom of God promises us that all our relationships there will be eternal. Our brothers, sisters, mother, father, friends, pets, husbands/wives, are eternally so, as there are no goodbyes.

It struck me hard that with so much suffering in this world, there had to be some purpose to it all. Since coming to this path of living a devoted life, I see that God gives suffering according to our past misdeeds (“as you sew. so you reap”), or karma, in order to correct our behavior towards others. When one is dissatisfied by life’s trials and troubles which inevitably come, we then listen to the voices of those wise Saints and Messengers, who took great efforts for us to gain entrance into the eternal Kingdom, which promises eternal happiness. We are all searching for love and joy at every moment of our lives, yet there is always something causing anxiety to our lives, whether it is death, disease, old-age, unlucky in love, war, famine or monetary worries. Problems are bound to come, just as the river flows to the sea. The ultimate 'gift' to humanity is to give a cure for the disease of reincarnation, which is the cause of all our problems.

According to the great Saints in history, having a daily practice that gives the mind and heart a spiritual focus and purification process is the only means for gaining success in our search for true sustained spiritual joy.

There are two ways to practice:

1. Vaidhi-Bhakti – strict adherence to rules, laws, rituals and regulations of the religion;
2. Raganugha-Bhakti – spontaneous loving devotional activity done out of pure love, it flows from the heart into a daily practice. One's devotion is not hindered, nor reliant upon the rules, laws and regulations laid out in scripture.

Bhakti means devotion. Our path is Bhakti Yoga, which means devotion with the goal of unifying with God and Goddess, which as we earlier concluded, is the healing that will give us the peace we have been yearning for, no matter which religion we follow.
An example of this is as follows.

Jesus saw a man suffering by the side of the road. He was blind and had many entities attaching themselves to the body & mind of the man. Jesus saw his suffering and immediately reached out to help him. With devotion and love for God in his noble heart he walked to the man, and asked "would you like to be healed?" The man replied "yes, I am a tortured soul". Jesus knelt down, spat into his hands and put his palms over the man’s eyes. The man shook and begged for mercy. Jesus prayed and begged the Lord our God, to heal this man, and to forgive his karmic sins, that had caused this man to suffer so. The man shook and started to wail. Jesus shouted at the entities "your time is nigh, I have come in the Name of God and tell you to leave this man, for he now belongs to me, you no longer have any place here, I have made other arrangements for you, in the Name of God, so now leave". Then the man shook violently and fell to the floor. There were many people standing watching all that had transpired. Some were afraid, some were in awe, others doubted he could heal the man, there were some who were envious of Jesus' ability, and others who were angry that he had healed a man on the Sabbath. The man opened his eyes, which had not been open in 40 years. He fell on the floor and kissed the feet of the man who had healed him.

Ritualistic devotion tells us to follow the laws of scripture and not do any works on the Sabbath, whereas the path of spontaneous love told Jesus to love and help someone in need without hindrance from any rule or law. So which is correct?

Both are right.

According to one's sukriti (spiritual bank account) one must follow the path that one is on. When one's sukriti is thick, devotion will be spontaneous, and no law can prevent someone from loving God in that moment. To increase your spiritual bank account and make your sukriti thick, daily practice is recommended. You can take many lifetimes devoted to any path, but reincarnation will continue to happen until you reach very deep levels of devotion. Having a devoted daily practice will help get you there sooner, rather than later. One can stand still, crawl, walk, run, gallop or fly towards the goal of life (to enter the Kingdom). When one does a spiritual practice daily, one's chances of walking, running, galloping or flying increases. According to how deep the longing and prayer becomes, that quickens your gait towards the goal of pure unmotivated devotion. The goal is to pray and meditate on the Holy Names of God and Goddess at every moment, until the heart is saturated with love.
The Buddhists chant on rosary, Jesus told us to love God with all our hearts and all our souls, and taught us to take the Holy Names of God upon our tongue. The Catholics pray on Rosary beads to the Holy Mother Mary, Muslims pray to Allah and repeat His Holy Names upon their minds, hearts and tongues as they finger their prayer beads. The Hindu's pray on mala, which look and act just like the rosary of the Buddhists, Catholics and Muslims. So it seems that all major religions are teaching us one thing. To repeat God's Holy Names in a repetitive mantra type fashion. As a practicing Vaishnava, the most ancient religion of devotion, one fingers sacred beads, whilst repeating and meditation upon the Names of God and Goddess.

The Names of God and Goddess are all powerful. The Divine Couple have invested all Their energies within Their Names. Their Names are not separate from Them. If I call you John, and your name is John, when I call you, you will come. So when we call out to God and Goddess, using one of Their many Holy Names, They too promise to come. Gradually the devotee will advance to the ultimate goal. That devotee who chants ritually, but has no love saturate the heart yet, will eventually become softened by God's association, since God and Goddess are not separate from Their Holy Names. In this way ritual chanting will eventually bring the seeker to the path of spontaneous devotion.
The devotee, feeling love in the heart for God and Goddess, weeps out of pure gratitude and devotion for the object of their worship. Even if rules and laws are broken, the devoted ones heart is experiencing the beginning of pure devotion. My spiritual teacher once told me "one of your tears is worth thousands of lifetimes of chanting and prayer". Gradually as we increase our prayer and chanting time, the heart becomes cleansed of all unwanted things. Some of the roots of disfunction (anarthas) within the heart of all who begin on the path of spiritual practice, are as follows:
Pride, selfishness, envy, greed, anger, judgment, criticism, hate, lust, sloth, as well as addiction to the many sense pleasures that come from sex, food, drugs, drink and all manner of daily distractions. These habits that come from experiencing life are hard to let go of once formed. Most of these disfunctions are already set in motion within us by the time we are young adults. Society is running towards 'things' for happiness, and simplicity and calm quiet contemplation are soon becoming lifestyles reserved only for the very old, the dying or those dedicated to monastic life. Repetition of God and Goddesses Holy Names, as a daily practice, helps one shift one's focus from "getting, doing, wanting and lamenting", to devotion, giving love and living purely.

I chant an ancient mantra daily, that came from a lineage of Great Masters from India. This mantra, is called the Maha-Mantra. Maha means greatest of all, very merciful. The reason I chose the Maha-Mantra is not because it is the greatest, but because it focuses the devotee on devotion to God and Goddess combined, rather than to a male deity alone. So, considering all that I had researched on the life of Mary Magdalene and Jesus, for me it made the most amount of sense to choose a mantra that would include and unite both Masculine and Feminine Divine at its center.

You may repeat any of God’s Holy Names, they are all perfect and complete, this is just an example of my own personal daily spiritual practice as prayer repetition and meditation on God’s Holy Names and beauty.

HARE – One of the Holy Names of the Goddess
KRISHNA – One of God’s Holy Names
HARE - Goddess
RAM – Another one of God’s Divine Names, where God is in His devotion to Goddess;

It is the most complete of all prayers as it brings Divine Masculine and Feminine together, which is the goal of all religious prayer at its core, if one read's any deep esoteric scripture.

Magdalen at Rennes Le Chateau

Yesterday was the Birthday of Mary Magdalene (July 22nd), now called the Feast Day of the Magdalen.  It seemed an appropriate day to update my blog, since we left USA excitedly over 4 weeks ago, heading for the sacred isle of Britain and then onto Rennes Le Chateau and Carcassonne region of Southern France in search of the history of the Magdalene and her beloved companion. 

Mary Magdalene Stature from Sauniere's Rennes-le-Chateau Church

Our first Grail experience was to meet up with the amazing Templar Knight (past life for sure!) Ben Hammott ( who has written numerous incredible books on the Magdalene treasures that exist in Rennes Le Chateau in France.  Also known as The Tomb Man, who is the star of my favorite documentary BLOODLINE the movie, we felt honored that he accepted a lunch tea date with us at St Albans Cathedral in England.  He brought with him some of the 2,000 year old artifacts that he found in and around Rennes Le Chateau area, as he followed a trail of clues left buried in the countryside, by Berenger Sauniere, the Priest of the infamous church, over 120 years ago!  His story is amazing, and more than I can fit into this blog today, but it is well worth the research if you are interested in knowing more about the Holy Grail.  I would seriously suggest going to Ben's website ad ordering his incredible book about the Lost Treasure of The Knights Templar. 

I will post a short film of our fantastic meeting upon my return to USA after August 15th, until then, please watch the documentary (  so you have a heads-up on what amazing treasures have been found in Southern France.  The story is really so Dan Brown, it is brilliant and highly addicting, but well worth the research!  Ben allowed us to open a beautiful old wooden box, wherein a 2,000 year old clay cup, glass vellum and alabaster jar lay.  Getting to hold these artifacts in my hands was more than a life-long dream for me, to think that this jar had once held the oil of Spikenard which Magdalene had so carefully and lovingly anointed her love, Jesus, as a marriage rite!  It ran chills down my spine.

The countryside here is stunning, and the energy vibration high.  Rennes Le Chateau is a little Church sitting on the top of a hill, surrounded by nature.  The views are outstanding.  The Chapel / Church of Rennes Le Chateau was not at all what I had expected.  It was much smaller than I had thought it would be, and the vibration was so much higher than I could ever have imagined.  To sit in this little Church, surrounded by hidden clue's, messages and Holy imaginations was so much more enjoyable and spiritual of an experience than any other Church ever.  

Over 100 years ago, Berenger Sauniere became the Priest of a small run down ruined church. When he started rebuilding the old Church and renovating, he came across a 'Royal Crypt' under the altar, wherein he found 2 bodies, one of a crucified mummified man, said to be the Royal Jesus, and the other of his wife Mary Magdalene. Inside the tomb were ancient documents belonging to the Cathar's and Knights Templar who protected the Grail history for 1,000 years until their brutal mass murder on Friday 13th Oct 1307. where millions of so called 'heretics' were killed, by the Pope who ordered the King of France to kill them all. How very Christian of them!

Of course, they didn't want their secrets to die with them, so the story goes that less than a handful of these Guardians of the Grail escaped, and buried the treasures and secrets under this mound which is now Rennes Le Chateau. Anyhow, Sauniere suddenly became mega wealthy, and I mean from poor to mega rich overnight, so obviously what he found was quite substantial.  Some believe the Church paid him to keep quiet about what he had found, others say he smelted some of the gold he found and sold it off, to fund the renovations he made to the Church, and to fund his lavish lifestyle with his secretary and 'friend' Marie Dernarnaud. 

The Knights Templar had excavated some incredible treausure from beneath the foundations of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, some say it was the Arc of the Covenant, some say great treasures of gold and artifacts, but whatever it was they found, they amassed great power and wealth, equal if not exceeding that of the Roman Catholic Church, which of course, the Church at the time saw as a great threat, hence the extermination of these enigmatic Cathars and Templars!

However, the clever Cathars and Knights Templar had built underground catacombs much like those in Jerusalem, and created a "new Jerusalem" here in Languedoc region of Southern France, wherein they buried their secrets, waiting for future generations, who they no doubt hoped would be more liberal than those 1,000 years ago.  Some of these treasures have now been found by my new friend Ben Hammott, including a tomb, wherein the body of a 2,000 year old mummified royal corpse lies surrounded by treasures, books and scrolls.  Could this be the Holy Grail he has found?  Has Mary Magdalene been waiting all these years to be discovered, and finally revealed to the world as the wife of Jesus Christ, and will the Goddess finally be returned to the Throne of God, to sit beside Her Beloved to restore the sacred balance within the Universe, and also in us?  The story continues........ and revelation is here.........

Blessings from France,
Krishna Rose

Sauniere claims that he found evidence proving that not only was Jesus married to Mary Magdalene and had children, but that he survived the crucifixion and moved with them to this region to flee persecution by is own people.  The altar energy really surprised me, as up until now, my research had led me to believe Jesus was buried in Srinagar, Kashmir.  However, I have to say, the energy here in this Church was the closest thing to Holy-ness I have experienced to date, other than standing before the Samadhi Mandir of Rupa Goswami in India (holiest burial site of Vaisnavism), or sitting before my Holy Master, Srila Narayan Goswami, who has now also passed over from this world.
