Christ has shown by His life that, although He had to suffer so much, He was so patient and courageous. His life has given us an example of what we should be, how we should behave when we are facing problems because of the ignorance of people.... In these sufferings, Christ never cried or wept. He went through it in a very resolute manner. So what we have to learn from His life is that we should not be afraid.

Whatever might be happening to us, we should not be afraid. But times have changed and people do not torture anyone because of spirituality. It is not there. It is finished. Christ wiped out all that from human minds and people respect you for being spiritual. This is the message of Christ’s life and we all should be very happy that He has shown us this path.... Christ was the embodiment of forgiveness.... He is there to look after you in every trouble, in every kind of turmoil. He is going to help us in every way, all the time and the only way is to surrender, to forgive. That is the quality of Christ we have to imbibe. (Christmas Puja, 2003 & 1993)

he Lord’s Prayer is the mantra to open the Agnya chakra. Everything that is said in the Lord’s Prayer is required to please Christ, there to be awakened. (1982 April 29)

Can you imagine such a loving character as Christ? Now when we are celebrating and worshipping Him, we have to worship that character within us that is also loving people. We love each other. All over the world, all the Sahaja Yogis love each other. (Easter Puja, 2002 April 21)

We should never ridicule anybody if he is following Christ and we should worship Him with the same affection, with the same devotion, with the same surrendering as we worship Shri Ganesh. (Christmas Puja, 1993 December 25)

From Wikipedia

Jesus (c. 4 BC to AD 30–33), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, is the central figure of Christianity, whom the teachings of most Christian denominations hold to be the Son of God. Christians believe Jesus is the awaited Messiah (or Christ, the Anointed One) of the Old Testament. (more)

From Saints, Sufis and Yogis

Jesus Christ (also known as Jesu, Yesu, and Issa) lived in the first century of the common era. He was a Palestinian spiritual teacher, and founder of the movement that became Christianity. As a young man he travelled widely in India and elsewhere, this being subsequently recorded in the Divine memory that was accessed by Levi Dowling when writing the Aquarian Gospel.

In India he is also known as Mahavishnu. According to the Bhavisya Purana, he met King Shalivahan who encouraged him to return to Palestine where he was killed (crucified). After his resurrection, he returned to India, specifically Kashmir, where his tomb is said to be.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has spoken of Jesus Christ many times:

What was Christ? He was a son of a carpenter. He never got education. But what did he do? He was the Spirit. He reflected God within him and that’s why he got himself crucified also. (2000-0820)

His name Christ comes from the word Krishna, Krist, and the second one is Jesus. Krishna had a foster mother whom Radha loved very much. Her name was Yeshoda, we also call her as Jeshoda. Christ is called also as Yesu in India. The short form of Jeshoda is Yesu or Jesu. … From there the name Jesus has come. … Moreover the word Jesu or Yesu is very important. Je in Sanskrit language means, every word has a meaning in Sanskrit language, means to know, is to know, the knowledge, Gyana. … The one who knows. Su means “that brings auspiciousness, that brings blessings”. Jeshu is the one who knows how to bring auspiciousness on this Earth. (1981-1006)

This Agnya Chakra is a gate, is the door of Heaven. And everyone has to pass through it. Now on this chakra resides the great incarnation of our Lord, Jesus Christ. In our Indian Shastras, He is called as Mahavishnu, the son of Radhaji. ... He is the embodiment of innocence. (1983-0203)
