What is important is the life that Jesus lived

 

[Personal interviews]

Question: From the Christian standpoint, Christ is the only one and unique amongst prophets. Do you believe that?

Baba: Unique, indeed, from the standpoint of his state and consciousness. The Muslims claim that Muhammad is the only prophet. The Buddhists claim Buddha; the Parsis, Zoroaster; and the Christians, Christ. Each say that their perfect ideal [of the Prophet] is the unique one, but why bother about that? What do names matter? What is important is the life that Jesus lived. To understand Christ, to know him, one has to live his life. Mere ceremonies and talks, discussions, and criticisms don’t help one towards knowing Christ. Christ taught one simple thing, love, and so few of his followers have that love developed.
