HINDUISM

Home | HINDUISM

Just like Buddhism, Hinduism developed mostly without any connection to Jesus in a totally different culture. There are, however, some surprising similarities with one important Hindu deity, Krishna: he, as well, is seen as a deity who came to earth in human form to set his followers free. The most famous Hindu, Mahatma Gandhi, viewed Jesus even as a great example and considered the Sermon on the Mount (a speech Jesus made on a hill) as one of the most beautiful texts of all times:

“I believe in the perfectibility of human nature. Jesus came as near to perfection as possible. God alone is absolutely perfect.” Gandhi thought that Jesus’ followers did

not do a very good job. “I like

your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are

so unlike your Christ.”
