Nicolas Notovitch was a Russian doctor who, in the 1890s, journeyed extensively throughout India, Afghanistan and Tibet. His journeying took him through a variety of remote places such as the passes of Bolan, across the Punjab, and eventually into the beautiful and historic Vale of Kashmir of the Himalayas. On one such voyage, whilst he was visiting Leh, the main city of Ladak, Notovitch broke his leg in an accident. 'Fate' had ordained, thus, that he ought to sojourn for a time of convalescing at the Himis convent.
It was apparently during this period of healing that Notovitch was informed that ancient writings, chronicling the life of Jesus Christ existed. Subsequently, he traced and studied a Tibetan rendition of these writings and copied down in his journal in excess of two hundred verses from the curious document referred to as "The Life of St. Issa."
Furthermore, Notovitch was shown two large yellowed volumes containing the supposed biography of St. Issa. The Russian medic then enlisted one of his travelling companions to translate these Tibetan volumes, while he copied down each verse in the rear of his journal.
Moving the story on some thirty years to 1925, Nicholas Roerich, another Russian, made the journey to the same convent at Himis. Roerich, was both a distinguished scientist and a philosopher.Read more ›
The Yuz Asaf grave was first mentioned in 112 CE and (plot spoiler) Nicolas Notovitch identifies him as Jesus Christ. Various people have tried that. The New Testament is silent about what Jesus did in his youth. Apart from one anecdote when he was 12, the thirty-odd years between his birth and ministry are not accounted for by the Gospel writers, leaving room for speculation. The sayings of Jesus, as quoted, are not at odds with Bhuddist teachings, so one has the option of imagining that he trained in India. Or at Qumran.Read more ›
