Perspectives on Nicolas Notovitch’s “The Unknown Life of Christ”

Nicolas Notovitch and Christ painting

Q: In the Tibetan scrolls discovered by Nicolas Notovitch Jesus denied all Gods beside the One God. Jesus attacked also the concept of a Trimurti (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva). Buddha spoke about the Great and Indivisible Divine Being.

When we speak about the wisdom, the love and the will of a person, we consider these not as three persons, like Father, Mother and Son. In the Gospels when Jesus is referring to God, He always says: “My Father.” Is it not better to address God as our Father than considering God as three “Persons”?

  • In the Tibetan scrolls discovered by Nicolas Notovitch Jesus denied all Gods beside the One God.

Remember that what we have in Notovitch’s book is what a Tibetan monk–whose proficiency in French is unknown–told him they said. And then they were later translated into English and edited by Notovich.

No one in their right mind denies the existence of the gods, but they know that the gods are either symbols of Brahman (“God” is too vague to use in discussion of such matters) or are powerful finite beings which exist in Brahman but are never separated from Brahman Which is their Essence.

  • Jesus attacked also the concept of a Trimurti (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva).

This, too, is erroneous. Jesus denied the idea of three independently existing gods, completely separate from Brahman.

  • Buddha spoke about the Great and Indivisible Divine Being.

Yes!

  • When we speak about the wisdom, the love and the will of a person, we consider these not as three persons, like Father, Mother and Son. In the Gospels when Jesus is referring to God, He always says: “My Father.” Is it not better to address God as our Father than considering God as three “Persons”?

Here, too, we have a heavily edited version of Jesus’ words by people who would have gotten heart palpitations if Jesus had said, “My Mother.” Brahman can be rightly addressed by any word or name we might prefer, as this is in the realm of relativity which Brahman transcends. How could an Absolute Being care what It is called? And how can we call It anything? For Brahman is The No Thing. That is why if we are wise we meditate rather than spend time in prayers over and over.
