ONE SECRET ABOUT JESUS WHICH THE CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW
James H. McGrew
Most historians believe that Jesus died on the cross. The Muslim
tradition, however, teaches that Jesus did not die on the cross and
died in India years after the crucifixion. The Muslim tradition was
correct. Baba clarifies that Jesus did not die on the cross and in
fact did travel to India after the crucifixion and is now buried there:
"There is one secret about Jesus which the Christians do
not know. When Jesus was crucified, he did not die; he entered the state
of Nirvikalp Samadhi (the "I Am God" state without bodily
consciousness). On the third day, he again became conscious of his body
and he traveled secretly in disguise eastward (with some apostles) to
India. This was called Jesus' resurrection.
"After reaching India, he traveled farther east to
Rangoon in Burma where he remained for some time. He then went north to
Kashmir where he settled. When his work was finished on earth, he dropped
his body and entered Nirvikalp Samadhi permanently.
"Saints in India have verified these facts about Jesus'
travels. Mankind will soon become aware of the true life about Jesus."
In 1933, Baba showed some Western disciples a hill in Harvan,
Northeast of Srinagar in Kashmir State, India and told them: "There is the
place where two of Christ's apostles, Bartholomew and Thaddeus, buried his
body; they had accompanied him from Palestine." Baba had previously
stayed in seclusion and fasted on that very hill.
Bhau Kalchuri notes:
"Whenever Meher Baba returned to Srinagar, for his own
reasons, he went to the Harvan mountain village near the area where
Jesus's body was buried in a cave nearly twenty centuries ago. Baba
did not actually show the cave to his men and women mandali, because
after viewing the area one observes that the cave was probably covered
over by avalanches and the natural growth of the mountain terrain. This
may be a controversial point of contention about Christian historians;
nonetheless, it is legendary in India and Tibet."
