Saving the Savior: Did Christ Survive the Crucifixion?

This masterful work presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus Christ survived the crucifixion, escaped from Roman Judea, traveled eastward, and took up residence in Kashmir, India, where he probably had a family and lived to the age of 120 years.
He is buried under the Rozabal mausoleum in the Kan Yar section of Srinagar, Kashmir, India. The Rozabal is a large structure, still intact, and visited by people from around the world.

The best summary of work in this field. Thirty pictures and charts include actual Sanskrit, Tibetan and Persian language documents-with full English translations- that clearly and explicitly record the sojourn of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion.

The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ

This book, an all-time classic, includes an absolutely fascinating translation of a lengthy Tibetan manuscript found by Nicholas Notovitch, a Russian aristocrat, author and explorer, in the Hemis Buddhist Monastery in the 1890s.
This authentic document reveals that Jesus Christ spent those "missing years" unaccounted for in the Bible, between the ages of 13 to 29, in India and Asia.

You'll read about the six years he spent in Juggarnaut, Rajegriha, Benares and other holy cities, gaining the love and respect of everyone he encountered (except the priests!) Read about his defense of the "lower castes," the Vaisyas and the Sudras, and his bold stance against the Brahmans and Kshatriyas; and later, when he arrived in Persia en route back to Jerusalem, the fear he instilled in the Zoroastrian priests by teaching to the common people that, "As long as the people had no priests...Their souls were in God."

The Prophet of the Dead Sea Scrolls
by Dr. Upton Clary Ewing

An eye-opener for every Christian: our early Church sprang not from a supernatural miracle, but grew naturally out of the sect Jesus was raised in, the Essenes. As St. Augustine wrote, “what is now called the Christian religion existed even from the beginning of the human race.”
The Essene way of life would be perfect for today, with its exemplary humanity, non-violence, sharing of wealth, love of freedom, respect for women, kindness to animals, and modest demands on ecology and society.
Ewing shows that the first New Testament was an Essene text. It emphasized deeds and understanding, replaced by The Church with the recipe of blind faith, which can be mass produced where wisdom can’t. Today the Christian faith is a billion strong, but unlike the Essenes, it is seldom at the forefront of human thought - more often fighting a rear-guard battle against the spread of knowledge.
The Essenes would never have said, “Jesus died for our sins.” Right living was merely the minimum that every Essene was expected to strive for, and achieve - as a basis for spiritual development.
The author’s findings are based on careful research. The great value of this book is a touchstone to rediscover real Christianity, and help distinguish the essential truth of every teaching.

Jesus Lived in India
His Unknown Life Before and After the Crucifixion
by Holger Kersten

Why has Christianity chosen to ignore its connections with the religions of the East, and to dismiss repeatedly the numerous claims that Jesus spent a large part of his life in India?

This compelling book presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus did indeed live in India, dying there in old age. The result of many years of investigative research, Jesus Lived in India takes the reader to all of the historical sites connected with Jesus in Palestine, the Middle East, Afghanistan and India. As well as revealing age-old links between the Israelites and the East, the evidence found by theologian Holger Kersten points to startling conclusions:

In his youth, Jesus followed the ancient Silk Route to India. While there, he studied Buddhism, adopting its tenets and becoming a spiritual master.
Jesus survived the crucifixion.
After the 'resurrection' Jesus returned to India to die in old age.
Jesus was buried in Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir, where he continues to be revered as a saint. The tomb of Jesus still exists there.

Christ in Kashmir

Good things come in small packages from far away. This jam-packed, 160-page book comes directly from the city that houses the Tomb of Jesus Christ: Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir.
The author, Aziz Kashmiri, is a lifelong resident-author-scholar of Srinagar who is intimately and masterfully knowledgeable of the history of Kashmir, including the history and traditions of Jesus in Kashmir. Aziz Kashmiri presents this work with raw vigor and honesty, proving that Jesus survived the crucifixion, travelled to Kashmir, and died there at a ripe old age.


The Origin of Christianity: The Pacifism, Communalism and Vegetarianism of Primitive Christianity

For anyone wanting to know the real history of early Christianity, this book is both an essential and a "fun" read. First published in 1986 with the title "The Vegetarianism of Jesus Christ," this second edition has much additional material and substantial revisions which have made the book more interesting, more provocative, and more persuasive.
Vaclavik does not mince words or conclusions. The current so-called Christianity is at best a pale imitation of the real views of Jesus, and at worst an outright betrayal of its leader. Jesus was interested in promoting pacifism (nonviolence towards enemies), communalism (sharing of possessions), and vegetarianism (nonviolence towards animals).
Vaclavik's book is important and valuable: I have read his book and profited from it. Moreover, I believe that in his important conclusions, he is absolutely right: pacifism, communalism, and vegetarianism were important parts of the message of Jesus.

Jesus in Heaven on Earth
Journey of Jesus to Kashmir, His Preaching to the Lost Tribes of Israel,
and Death and Burial in Srinagar

Khwaja Nazir Ahmad's book is one of the top two Jesus-in-India books of all time. It is a well-known classic. 471 pages; 86 illustrations; a bibliography of 513 books; linguistic charts; insightful appendices; a chronological survey of the research, and much more make this book a scholar's paradise. Yet it is wholly readable for the average lay person. Nazir Ahmad, a bona fide scholar, cannot be dismissed as a "New Age" dreamer. He was well versed in Asian and Indian languages, comparative religious studies, world history and linguistics, and was even nominated for the Nobel Prize.
First written in 1950 and republished in 1998, this book does much more than present the issue of Jesus in India as some quaint, off-beat topic. Thorough analyses of the important details of history, culture, religion, archaeology and linguistics, are all woven together as one of the most coherent and logical presentations of the subject to date. Nazir Ahmad made his case.

The Christ Conspiracy
The Greatest Story Ever Sold

This book is already a classic after only a few years in print. Acharya S is a stinging writer, of great depth and passion, who has amassed a vast amount of material to advance her theory that Christianity and, indeed, the figure of "Jesus Christ" as generally portrayed, were created by a cabal of clandestine members of various secret societies, mystery schools and religions for the purpose of unifying the Roman Empire under one state religion.
Acharya postulates that "Jesus" was actually a composite character of popular dieties such as Mithras, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysos and many others who personified the ubiquitous solar myth. The story of Jesus, as portrayed in the Bible, is virtually identical in detail to that of earlier savior-gods, such as Krishna and Horus. Acharya S shows our Western Christianity to be a re-interpretation of ancient beliefs that were centered on the celestial bodies and natural forces.


The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors:
Christianity before Christ

Kersey Graves' 1875 classic, republished in 2001, has had an impact on many thousands of people over the generations. Amongst Western writers, the dogma-bound might well rank Godfrey Higgins (Anacalypsis) and Kersey Graves at the top of their list of heretics.

Graves believed that Jesus lived, but not as a divine being. Chapters such as, "How Men, Including Jesus Christ, Came To Be Worshipped As Gods," give the devastating details that expose the pre-Christian pagan origins of what is usually called "Christianity."

Graves produced page after page after page of astonishing correlations between the Jesus of Christianity and 16 pre-Christian figures, e.g., Sakia (India, 600 B.C.), Thammuz (Syria, 1160 B.C.) and Quexalcote (Mexico, 587 B.C.) He shows 346 striking analogies between Jesus Christ and Krishna. Chapter titles include: Rival Claims of the Saviors; Messianic Prophecies; Miraculous And Immaculate Conception of the Gods; Virgin Mothers and Virgin-Born Gods; The Twenty-Fifth Of December: The Birthday of the Gods; Titles of the Saviors; Resurrection of the Saviors; The Sacrament or Eucharist of Heathen Origin; Christianity Derived from Heathen and Oriental Systems.
