Jesus of Nazareth ~ 5BC 30 CE

Jesus born between 4 & 6 BC, knew that people of his time expected him to reform existing religious, social and political systems and increase the prestige of their existing country, but Jesus stated that his mission was not to abolish any kind of law, destroy old creeds, or challenge the prophets. His mission was to fulfill prophecies, add to the law and interpret it in such a way as to be beneficial for the people and not for the system itself. He taught non resistance, overcoming evil with good, and love for one's enemies.

Jesus wanted people to reach perfection through prayer and pious living and to ask God always for help. The essential aspect behind his teachings was Love. Love awakens the human heart and the absolute prerequisite for the transformation of man into divine being.

Namaste,
Mary Jane
