JESUS IN INDIA

REVJIIPI
A seeker’s quest across 4000 miles of India in search of answers as to where Jesus was during the “Hidden Years” from ages 12 to 30.
AMAZON PRIME BLURB

OFFICIAL TRAILER

RATING: 5 Charley’s.
All documentaries attempt to answer questions. In the Fortean genre, such questions revolve around   whether ghosts, Flying Saucers, Bigfoot, (insert your favorite mystery here,) really exist? Granted, important questions enough to consider. But when a documentary poses questions where the answers may completely rewrite history and challenge the religious beliefs of 2.4 billion Christians worldwide, that’s some documentary.

ETM
Edward T. Martin, Adventurer and Author of
King of Travelers: Jesus’s Lost Years in India

It all started with a few simple questions that Edward T. Martin as a child, asked his Sunday school teachers. Where was Jesus and what was he doing between the ages of 12 and 30 years old? The search for these answers takes Martin, now as an adult, on a whirlwind tour of Holy shrines, churches and Monasteries throughout India and the Himalayas.

JT
At age 12 Jesus taught the elders of the temple. He then disappeared for 18 years, and did not reappear till age 30.
Where was he?

No matter what your religious beliefs, or non-beliefs are, Jesus in India is an intriguing mystery that just may be solved in this lifetime. All we need is belief in faith.

COMPCBUDD
The biggest question of them all in this video is:
Did Jesus survive the Crucifixion and travel to India,
Nepal and Tibet?

 “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.” —Luke 2:52. This is the single line in the Bible that describes the 18 years of Jesus’ life from ages 12 to 30. Where was Jesus during those years? For those of us curious to know more, let’s look to Edward T. Martin.

Is this Christ’s grave? Or, as  He is called in India, Saint Issa?

He is an author and researcher whose findings are showcased in the documentary feature film “Jesus in India.” In this talk, Martin reveals the legends, myths, and historical evidence of Jesus’ life in India. A few of the more provocative discoveries include: clarity regarding the physical appearance of Jesus, evidence of Jesus’ children, and indications of Jesus’ life after crucifixion.

Some interesting facts about Hesemann is that he once published and edited a magazine in Germany dealing with paranormal phenomena. He was also the author and co-author of several books on UFOs. The following statement:  “Hesemann hosted a global ufology congress in Düsseldorf, Germany, where he presented alleged video evidence for the alien autopsy,” from his Wikipedia write-up is incorrect. He in fact, called the now infamous “Santilli, Alien Autopsy film,” along with his co-author Philip Mantle,
“a fake.”

Jesus in Kashmir: The Lost Tomb
by Suzanne Olsson
JIK
Picked by Amazon Book Review Editors as one of their favorite History Books of 2018. International Best-selling author, Suzanne Olson spent years living and studying in India and remote Himalayan locations, following the Old Silk Road and the legends of Jesus. She accessed obscure relics and scrolls, and has raised alarms worldwide about the risk of terrorism destroying the evidence the world needs. If there is one chance in a million, or one in a billion that the Roza Bal tomb, or any of the artifacts associated with it, are not fakes, but are indeed connected with Jesus in any way, then the world needs to act quickly to save them and scientifically catalog them before it’s too late. No armchair scholar, her extensive and well-written research is backed up with meticulous notes and resources, dozens of rare photographs, charts and maps. A fascinating work of deep reflection and mesmerizing personal experiences, combining her own genealogy quest with rare ‘boots on the ground’ kind of research acquired at great personal risk. Olsson is now the world’s leading expert on the Roza Bal tomb. This book is a classic worldwide, and best-seller among Christians, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, and Muslims seeking the historical connections to their origins. This is the 5th and final updated edition.

Jesus Lived in India:
His Unknown Life Before and After the Crucifixion
By Holger Kersten
NEW COVER
Kersten presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus did indeed live in India, dying there in old age. From the author of the best-selling The Jesus Conspiracy. His unknown life before and after the crucifixion. Why has Christianity chosen to ignore its connections with the religions of the East, and to dismiss repeatedly the numerous claims that Jesus spent a large part of his life in India? This compelling book presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus did indeed live in India, dying there in old age. The result of many years of investigative research, Jesus Lived in India takes the reader to all the historical sites connected with Jesus in Israel, the Middle East, Afghanistan and India. As well as revealing age-old links between the Israelites and the East, the evidence found by theologian Holger Kersten points to the following startling conclusions: In his youth Jesus followed the ancient Silk Road to India. While there he studied Buddhism, adopting its tenets and becoming a spiritual master. Jesus survived the crucifixion. And the resurrection, returned to India to die in old age. Jesus was buried in Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir, where he continues to be revered as a saintly man. The tomb of Jesus still exists in Kashmir.

THE BOOK THAT STARTED IT ALL:
The Life of Saint Issa: The Lost Years of Jesus Christ in India and the East
By Nicholas Notovitch and Vichada R. Gandhi (Translator)
BKLI
A Crimean Jewish adventurer and explorer of India, Notovitch traveled widely across the East in the late nineteenth century. He claimed to have discovered a biographical document in Hemis Monastery – located in modern-day India – from which he created this book. The bold and fantastical claims about Christ attracted attention from scholars of Christianity and the popular media of the time.  Spotting inconsistencies in Notovitch’s account, it was only after being confronted with these that he apparently confessed to having fabricated the biography of Jesus Christ. For some years the entire matter was considered a hoax; until the Indian mystic Swami Abhedananda visited the Hemis Monastery where a monk confirmed that Notovitch had stayed some six weeks there, convalescing with a broken leg, whereupon he read the disputed documents concerning Christ.

BUYING THE SPIRIT

BUYSIPCROPPED

For many people, Voo Doo is synonymous with black magic and malevolence. It’s regarded with suspicion, conjuring up images of animal sacrifices and mutilated dolls. This powerful documentary takes us straight into this hidden, impenetrable world. Beautifully-made with unbelievable access to Voo Doo practitioners, this film offers an unrivaled insight into this frequently misunderstood religion.

And I guarantee you, you will watch it more than once.

* In Voo Doo, there are both Priests and Priestess. And there is no limit to what practitioner rank either one can rise to.

DANCE
Voo Doo Societies often meet each other for ritual ceremonies of song and dance. However, while the festive song and dance ceremony is under way, each Voo Doo Society must remain vigilant.

Secrets of Voo Doo
By Milo Rigaud
VGBKC#2
Secrets of Voo Doo traces the development in Haiti and the Americas of this complex religion from its sources in the brilliant civilizations of ancient Africa. This book presents a straightforward account of the gods of Loas and their function, the symbols, signs, rituals and the ceremonial calendar of Voodoo; and the procedures for performing magical rites are given.
“Voo Doo,” derived from the words meaning “introspection” and “mystere,” is a system of belies about the formation of the world and human destiny with clear correspondences in other world religions. Rigaud makes these connections and discloses the esoteric meaning underlying Voodoo’s outward manifestations, which are often misinterpreted. Translated from the French by Robert B. Cross.

THE MAGICK OF SOLOMON, 2nd Edition is an 85 minute video documentary written and narrated by Anthropologist and ceremonial magician, Carroll “Poke” Runyon, Magister of America’s oldest continually operating Magical Lodge, The Ordo Templi Astartes (O.T.A.).

The first part of the video offers a history of Western Magick, illustrated with graphics and displays, setting forth the author’s theory, based on his own research and experiments, that of visions of spirits obtained by magicians in medieval times were subjective and hypnotic rather than hysterical hallucinations.

RATING: 5 Charley’s
First,
this video comes with a caution:

 

The reason for this is perfectly understandable warning is that the video records actual Magikal workings by practitioners of Solomon’s Magick. This is the first time filming like this has been allowed. Sometimes people often rush into situations where they may encounter a problem that they will have no control over. Or they will be disappointed with not getting the results they are seeking.

That’s why when dealing with any type of ceremonial of Magikal working, it is better to proceed slowly. Get the proper training and acquire the discipline you need to devote yourself to the process.

RITUAL#2
The Tree of Life, the Kabbalah and its important place in mystic tradition is taught by the Magister.

This video is extremely fascinating and will give you an excellent introduction to this particular  mystery school of Magick. It concentrates on developing and applying the powers of the mind.

Runyon, the facilitator, cites the work of Dr. Carl Gustav Jung as a reconciliation between Magikal philosophy and practices. Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst founded analytical psychology. His ground breaking insights in to the human psyche has gone on to influence such fields as psychiatry, anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy, and religious studies.

JUNG
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awake.”
Dr. Carl Gustav Jung

Jung was fascinated with Tarot cards and believed the imagery on them could serve as a doorway to the unconsciousness. He also practiced the I-Ching Oracle for over 30 years. Because of these occult pursuits, he was referred to as “A Mystic.” He last book, published in 1958 dealt with UFOs. It was entitled, Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies.

Runyon goes on to quote Jung:
“Beneath and beyond the personal subconscious mind, there flows a vast deep sea of dream images and forgotten lore.”

This observation lead to Jung coining the term, the
Collective Unconscious, which is made of Archetypical images that dwell and influence us in the shadowy realm of the unconscious mind.

In both cases, Jung’s theories, and the Magik that Runyon practices call on exploring and harnessing the latent powers of the mind. In the quote below, it can be said that Runyon’s Magik philosophy dovetails nicely with Jung’s beliefs, or visa-versa. Perhaps Jung’s beliefs dovetails with ancient Magikal philosophies?

“The human imagination, inspired by its divine creator, is the most powerful force in the universe. A river of hopes and dreams that bears us all along, on its flowing course from the beginning, to the end of time. From planet earth out to the farthest stars.”
Carroll “Poke” Runyon, Magister
Enjoy the video and the many lessons it teaches.

Jinn Magick is simple to execute, and the results can be some of the best you will find in all of occultism.

Working with material compiled from a variety of sources–including their own case files, Middle Eastern lore, the Qur’an, teachings of Islamic scholars, and the latest theories in quantum physics–the authors explore the relationship between the djinn, demons, fairies, shadow people, and extraterrestrials. They discuss the military’s interest in these clandestine beings, offer eyewitness accounts of modern human encounters with the djinn, and reveal the location of interdimensional entry points in North America.

LORETO – MYSTERY OF THE HOLY HOUSE

LPI

An investigation into one of the most fascinating and controversial mysteries of Christianity. How was the Holy House of the Virgin Mary transported from its original location in Nazareth, to Palestine, to the town of Loreto on Italy’s Adriatic coast?
BLURB FROM AMAZON PRIME

An exclusive documentary investigation into one of the most fascinating and controversial mysteries of Christianity.

RATING: 5 Charley’s.
How does such a sacred shrine from the mid-east relocate to Italy? More puzzling still, how does the shrine not only make that trip, but how does it manage to appear in 5 different places, sometimes appearing and disappearing overnight? Then, when it arrives at its final destination, Loreto Italy, it appears on and blocks a main road?

A magnificent Basilica, second only to Saint Peter’s in Rome, now surrounds and protects the House of Mary. The interior shots of the marble statues and paintings in the Basilica are breath taking. Plus here’s an interesting bit of trivia. Did you know that Ostrich eggs were revered objects? They were used in shrine and church decorations going all the way back to the time of Christ.

So many questions still remain regarding this mystery. The most important ones are of course, did the Crusaders accomplish such a series of moves?
CRUSADERS
If the Crusaders are responsible, how did they manage to
quickly break down the Holy House, move it, and then reconstruct 5 times without being detected? It would have required a small army to accomplish this.

Or was it indeed, as the ancient carved stone tablets reveal, an army of Angels that dutifully performed these miracles?
Watch the video and decide for yourself.

WILLIAM FRIEDKIN’S THE DEVIL AND FATHER AMORTH

AMORTHPOSTI
Over 40 years after the release of the “The Exorcist,” Director William Friedkin meets the Vatican’s “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Gabriele Amorth, and receives permission to film his ninth attempt to exorcise a woman named Christina.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

OFFICIAL TRAILER

ITS RATING:  5 Charley’s.
Now, I’m not a lightweight when it comes to horror movies. But “The Exorcist” scared the Heebie-Jeebies out of me. So much so, that I have only seen the film once, and that was on the big screen way back in 1973 when it premiered.

The movie was based on the book, with the same title by the late William Peter Blattey. He also wrote the screenplay for the movie. The book in turn, was based on an actual exorcism.

All of this backstory is covered in great detail by William Friedkin, who also serves as the host and cameraman as he delves into the world of demonic possessions. He was invited by the late Father Amorth to film Christina’s 9th exorcism. Friedkin’s hand-held, point-of-view camera work gives the audience a front row seat to the turbulent ritual. It is revealed during this cleansing that the Demon who possess Christina is not just some run-of-the-mill, low level tormentor, but Satan himself!

RESTRAINED
Several Deacons, much bigger and heavier than Christina
struggled to restrain her during the ritual. That’s
Christina’s mother looking on in the background, praying
along with a room full of family members and friends.

Friedkin then takes his astonishing footage and consults numerous medical and religious authorities to get their professional take as to Christina’s claim of possession and use of exorcism to help heal  people with this diagnosis.  Their learned opinions will surprise you. Couple that with Friedkin’s and his Production Assistant’s later chilling encounter with Christina and her boyfriend in a church will make this one documentary you won’t soon forget.

RETURN OF THE EXORCISTS

RTOTEXPOSTI

Explore the heart of good versus demonic evil in this documentary. Guided by Theology Scholar, Father Francis Tiso, this eye-opening film takes you through the Catholic Churches’ startling mobilization to combat malevolent evil in Italy. It features actual footage of disturbing possessions and the unsettling exorcisms performed by the churches most experienced exorcists.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

RETURN OF THE EXORCISTS

 RATING: 5 Charley’s.
Hardly a week goes by when there isn’t an article posted on a news site or a feature story on television that doesn’t discuss exorcism. Popular Ghost Hunting show investigators often call on the services of an exorcist to drive out demons, malevolent Ghosts or Shadow people from the locus in quo. The Church has also begun training priests from all over the world to become qualified in conducting these rituals.

But why now? And why is this one region in Italy seemingly over run with demon possessions? So much so, that the Reverend Gabriele Amorth, the exorcist of the Diocese of Rome actually has a call-in radio show for people that think they are possessed, so they can find help and possible relief from their suffering. This documentary deals frankly with the church’s recognition of demon spirits and the steps it is taking to battle these entities world-wide.
(Spoiler Alert! Don’t worry, there is no 360 head turning, vomiting or bloodletting anywhere to be found
in this video. Yes, a curse word or two. A blaspheme here and there, but you know, Demons, what do you expect?)

GUADALUPE: THE MIRACLE AND THE MESSAGE

GUARALUPE PI
The most important event in the evangelization of the New World occurred in December, 1531. Over the course of four days, the Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to an indigenous convert named Juan Diego. As a result of this encounter, and the image miraculously imprinted on Juan Diego’s tilma (cloak), nine million Native Americans embraced the Catholic faith, and the Americas began its transformation into “the Catholic hemisphere.”

THE MIRACLE AND THE MESSAGE

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s message of love had replaced the institutionalized violence of the Aztec culture and built a bridge between two worlds. Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message, narrated by the legendary Plácido Domingo, traces the history of this transformative event from the 16th century to the present.
From the IMDB summary –

Featuring interviews with leading theologians, historians and experts on the scientific inquiries into the miraculous image-this gripping film explores both the inexplicable mysteries behind the image, and the continued relevance of the Guadalupe apparition to the modern world.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

IT’S RATING: 5 Charley’s
What other kind of rating can you give a miracle? Particularly fascinating is the in-depth research conducted on the eyes of the image.  The “painted” eyes have reflections of people in them in them as if created by a reflection.

OTHER VIDEO TITLES FOR MARIAN APPARITION BINGE WATCHING:
I like to see as many documentaries on the same subject as possible. But it’s always good to compare the different approaches and learn the original sources each documentary film maker uses regarding the subject at hand. You’ll learn something new and different in each one you watch.

All of the following are available on AMAZON PRIME.
Again they are all FREE if you are a member.
– Guadalupe – A living Image
– Fatima – A Message of Hope
– Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village
I had never stumbled across this particular Blessed Virgin  Mary (BVM) apparition. It took place in the Village of Knock in County Cork Ireland on August 21, 1879. The video is very interesting and concentrates more on the Shine and the town then the actual occurrence itself. But what is extremely important is that some of the decedents from the original witnesses are still alive. Those interviews are amazing.
