PREMISE OF THE BOOK
There was, and still is, a distinct difference between the followers of the Way of Jesus (an international movement) and the Judaic movement called The Christians. This story is told in the Christian book, Acts of the Apostles.
Jesus promised that he would come again to continue his mission to help us. He would come again not as an incarnated being but as a spiritual being–and he did. Jesus did not lie about his 2nd coming, nor did he change his mind as Christians say–he did come at the time and place and manner as he had promised.
Christians (being of the Jewish faith) awaited a Jewish Messiah, the one promised in their scripture to be a military ruler who would defeat the enemies of Yahweh and set the Jews as rulers of the world. They are still waiting for their Messiah, the Chrestos, Christ to come.
Wayists and other groups in Egypt and India who also knew Jesus’s teaching understood the 2nd coming to be when the Lord’s immense spiritual presence in our sphere is announced. The understanding was that the Lord would appear and bring with him large numbers of helper beings, spiritual beings from the place he called the Kingdom of his Father, the place where we too can go.
Jesus: Successful Earthly Ministry
Jesus’ earthly ministry to reform some religions was successful. By the time of his 2nd coming, reformations had already taken place in Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Gnosticism. In all these religions compassion became a major feature. The role of women started to change. Reformations in Hindusim and Buddhism now allowed women to go to heaven, get enlightenment. The role of the priest and monk declined as (bhakti) personal religion, mysticism, started to take over.
Jesus specified when it was that his 2nd coming would be. He said it will be after the end of the world of the people where they stood at the time–Jerusalem. He said when the Temple in Jerusalem is destroyed, after that. That happened in 70AD when the Romans sacked Jerusalem and almost two million Jews died. Later, they were banned from coming back to Jerusalem for 200 years. It was the end of their world. Jesus also said his return would be within a generation (40 years), and it was. He said he will return “in the East, and the light will be seen even in the West”, and that is how it happened, the new awareness was first embraced in the East. He send Thomas to Kashmir to prepare a community for Wayists from Palestine who would flee the end of that world; he said to them “flee for the mountains”, which they did, forming Wayist communities in what is known today as Northern India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Jesus: successful 2nd coming for all (but those who wait for the Jewish Messiah)
The start of Jesus’ celestial ministry happened in the period c.78AD when the Lotus Sutra revealed the incoming of the Buddha of Compassion. The new awareness finalized the split between Mahayana (where compassion is the key to enlightenment) and what we know today as the atheist and misogynist Theravada (where knowledge is the the key to enlightenment). The new awareness fueled the Bhakti Movement and cemented the place of the Bhagavad Gita in Hindu society, among many other transformations along the same ethic, in the late 1st century.
The presence of the majestically powerful spiritual being was announced, known to us by the Sanskrit title Avalokiteshvara — the Lord who hears and sees the prayers of all in the world. He was hailed as the World Saviour and the gateway to Enlightenment for all sentient beings. He came not only in his own power but is described by the Great Buddha as His son. The first time ever that a senior Buddha spoke of someone as His son. Avalokiteshvara is among us as the son, who is also the prince, of the western heaven called Sukhavati (Land of Bliss). The Father in heaven is called Lord Amitabha, which translates as Resplendent Light. Jesus sometimes prayed to Him as abha father, or light father. But there’s more. Avalokiteshvara is here with us as a yang force and he brings with him another being of a yin force, the Buddha of Wisdom, Mahastamprata, whose name means ‘the coming of great wisdom’, the holy spirit, the advocate of truth whom Jesus referred to before he departed.The concept of the trinity Father, Son and Holy spirit was entrenched in Wayist societies many decades before it took hold in the west. In the East, iconography of the heavenly trinity found its way into temples, monasteries and private home shrines ever since the end of the 1st century.
The Awareness rapidly spreads East and North
Avalokiteshvara says he will appear to all sentient beings in the form most suitable for them, whether it be the form of a woman, a child, an animal, or any of the gods. This era introduced a new place of honour for women. When the empress of China heard of this “new Buddhism” immediately she made it the national religion and statues of Avalokiteshvara, or Guanjin in Chinese, appeared all over China and even mixed in with Daoism. From here it went to Japan and is seen today in Zen, Tiantai, Pure Land and many other Buddhist movements based on compassion.
Today, the awareness of the presence of the Lord as World Saviour is honoured by more than two billion people in various religions. The ministry of Jesus incarnate was hugely successful, and now we live in the phase where His spiritual presence is omnipresent and is not based on religion, group, creed, race or species.
The light is seen in the west: a very readable historical novel
It is an opportune time for the west to gain the new awareness. Central spiritual concepts were only recently allowed in western societies without fear of burning at the stake or banishment. Westerns now know about karma, dharma, yin and yang and prana, zen and meditation. The time has come.
The book Universal Gateway to Enlightenment is written as a historical novel that appeals to a wide readership. For scholars and historians, we include in this website multiple references and additional information to continue research on this topic.
