According to the Bhavishya Purana (one of the traditionally accepted scriptural texts comprising the 18 Puranas), Jesus was not a follower of the Abrahamic tradition. In actuality, his Sanskrit name was Isha Putra (“Son of God”) and he was a Dharma Master whose mission was to teach the Vedic path to the Abrahamists of the Middle East. In this very unique talk, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya reveals to us the esoteric teachings of Isha Putra, the Vedic Jesus!
“The king asked, ‘Who are you sir?’ ‘You should know that I am Isha Putra, the Son of God’, he replied blissfully, and ‘am born of a virgin.’” (Bhavishya Purana, Chaturyuga Khanda, Dvitiyadhyayah, 19.23)
“‘I am the expounder of the religion of the mlecchas and I strictly adhere to the Absolute Truth.’ Hearing this the king enquired, ‘What are the principles of Dharma according to your opinion?’ (Bhavishya Purana, Chaturyuga Khanda, Dvitiyadhyayah, 19.24)
“[Isha Putra (Jesus) declared] Please hear, Oh king, which Dharmic principles I have established among the barbarians (mlecchas). The living entity is subject to good and bad contaminations. The mind should be purified by taking recourse of proper conduct and the performance of meditation on the chanting of the holy names of God (japa). By chanting the holy names one attains the highest purity. Just as the immovable sun attracts the elements of all living beings from all directions, in the same way the Lord (Narayana) of the Surya Mandala [solar realm], who is fixed and all-attractive, attracts the hearts of all living creatures. Thus, by following spiritual principles, speaking truthful words, by mental harmony and by meditation, Oh descendant of Manu, one should worship that immovable Lord.” (Bhavishya Purana, Chaturyuga Khanda, Dvitiyadhyayah, 19.27-29)
“Having placed the eternally pure and auspicious form of the Supreme Lord in my heart, O protector of the earth planet, I preached these principles through the mlecchas’ own faith and thus my name became ‘Isha-Masiha’ (Jesus the Messiah).” (Bhavishya Purana, Chaturyuga Khanda, Dvitiyadhyayah, 19.30)
