HINDU DEVOTEE OF YESHU

Now that we have seen who a Hindu is and who Christ is (1st 2 blogs) we see clearly that a Hindu too can be a follower of Christ without having to become a Christian. To become a Christian means that one has to leave one’s birth community and join another community. It also means that one has to reject one’s culture (ones way of life). However it is not a necessity that to be a follower of Christ one has to become a Christian. This false teaching has come from the Europeans who saw the Hindustani life as demonic and convinced people that in order to become a follower of Christ one has to reject the Hindustani lifestyle and adopt a European lifestyle. However this is not consistent with the Word. Both in Mark 5 and Acts 10 we see that neither the demoniac nor Cornelius and his household were required to leave their birth community to follow Christ. Also in Acts 15 the decision taken by the Jerusalem Council was that Gentiles were to remain Gentiles practicing their way of life; only they were to refrain from practices which were contrary to the Word. Yes, a Hindu isn’t required to leave his birth community or reject his Hindustani culture in order to be a follower of JC. A Hindu follower of Jesus also known as a Yeshu bhakta (devotee of Jesus) stays in his Hindu community practicing his Hindustani culture and giving allegiance to Christ and Him alone. Just as in all cultures there are good and bad elements so too in the Hindustani culture there are good and bad elements. Therefore the Hindu devotee is required to reject all that is bad and to use all that is good to bring Glory to the Most High through Sad Guru Yeshu. The Hindu Yeshu bhakta practices ones faith while being in his own birth community and using all symbols and elements of his culture in worship to Sad Guru Yeshu. In the broad spectrum of Hinduism there is place also for a Yeshu bhakta amongst the many other faiths.

"The Hindu Yeshu bhakta practices ones faith while being in his own birth community and using all symbols and elements of his culture in worship to Sad Guru Yeshu."

This is possible if one truely becomes the 'chela' of Sadguru Yeshu. Thank you for this thought.

Thanks for this wonderful testimony which has brought me out of many deceiving teachings.Jesus doesnt see the outer side of a man but sees the heart and your testimony has made the word come true.I am thankful to Jesus for this testimony where we come to know the difference between law and God's Grace and Love for us.I dont know how to thank you for this.You have answered many questions of mine.Thanks to Holy Spirit who made me see this blog.Otherwise I was really going away from the Lord into the Law.Jesus is not the God of Law but God of Grace.I also come from a Hindu Family and I have got answer to the question...Jesus loves everyone..we should welcome Him in our heart.I am sending this to many and many and many believers like me so that they will understand the true living God is Jesus Christ who comes into our heart and never leaves us after that.Glory to Jesus Christ.

As a Yeshu Bhakta from Hindu background, for me,
in theory Hindu Yeshu bhakta practicing his faith while being in his own birth community and using all symbols and elements of his culture in worship to Sad Guru Yeshu sounds great.

However, I am still very confused about how this work in practice when one is completely sorrounded by complete hindu culture and one is obliged do be part of so many complicated rituals and functions.

Just asking swami jee for more elaboration on this. IN other words, I am trying to find the boarderline.

It was interesting reading this blog. A Christian is a follower of Christ who said he is the only way to God. By definition, a Hindu is an individual who accepts the religious guidance of the Vedic scriptures. Therefore it is not possible to be a Hindu Yesubhakta

Dr. Pawan Kumar Aryan said...

It is both confusing and releiving.

Confusing due to very simple reason. Sadgami Eshu ji was bombarded upon India after industrial revolution in the west, grabbed in westerner apparel.

Releiving: Hindus have been provided with an oppurtunity by your version of Anadiveda to drap some regions of Sadgami Eshu Ji in their own culture and apparel as well.
I have read some of your booklets also and all other comments.

My concern is whether their exist some middle path as well--- between the noted narrow and the broad?
Is it like this that for Hindus the trut is subjective and then objective or vice versa?

Or not the rituals and dogmas are interwovened with riders of does and donts? Contraditory to what Eshu did in his life.

There are many more if you are comfortable to explain?

Swami Jee, there are so many definitions of OM. As you are also using this symbol, I am just curious how you describe OM.
