LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF LOVE & COMPASSION
Whence there is a huge presence of evil doer
Who misuse their power and high stature
To browbeat the general populace
Then our Super Soul (Paramatma) sends
His Messengers for spreading His message
To save the simple souls (Atmas) from these sinners.
Born to venerable Parents Marry & Joseph
The blessed Son of Spirit of our Lord, the Holiest
In Nazareth, Gaillee, the city of David
That is the reason, he is also referred
As Jesus of Nazaewrh
A saviour of humanity
And to spread the fragrance and purity
Of His message of peace to all humanity.
Men of wisdom came from places afar
Mesmerized by this Shining Star
To witness a holiest event
Which only happens, rarest of rare in time and space
Angels sing songs so melodious
Shepherds paid their huge reverence
Filled with immense exuberance.
Even old in years though
Simeon & Anna saw their ambition fructified
As they too had a glimpse of the Glorious One
Brought up in rural town of Nazareth
His adaptive & adoring father Joseph
Taught Him the art of using
Tools of a carpenter
A labour so arduous, that anybody can reckon
Resulting in so much perspiration
By the rays of sun so blistering.
The revered God’s son
Worked tirelessly in the hot Sun!
Thence as he cometh
From the waters of Jordan
A voice so refreshing
Cometh from Heaven
‘This is my beloved Son
In whom I am very pleased’.
Thereafter, Jesus went to the backwoods
Surprise of surprises of all, which could not be fathomed!
To allow Satan to temp Him
To break the back of Satan.
He fasted for days forty,
And vanquished the Satan thence forth
With eternal will of God in the heaven
Then brimming with the Holy Sprit
He lived with the commons
For three long years.
John recorded Jesus as the son of God,
Who raised the dead to live again with his grace
Made the blinds to get their eyesight back again
Lames to walk again
Demons dare not appear again
Came to the succour of hapless, aplenty
During storms, with so much ferocity.
With a few loaves and fish
Made food sufficient for five thousands!
Believe – no alternative, we have to!
Since He is sent by our Creator
As a Saviour
As His Incarnate
The All Knowing
And the All Powerful Being.
Then on a Thursday Night
Followers he met
In the city of Jerusalem
On an occasion so solemn,
He announced, unexpectedly
It is ordained that He may die
For those He loved so Him so dearly
And told them to remember
His association with them
And also promised, as destined
To come back, again
For their own sake!
He spent time in the garden of Gethsemane
Prayed to the Divine Providence.
No case was found against Jesus
By those who tried Him
Because He was flawless whence he interacted with gentry
Yet was crucified on Friday even then!
He departed this life
For He loved us all
After when He was dead
His power was proclaimed
By happening most unexplained
On the morn of Sunday
He rose from the dead
Appeared to Mary
And apostles and a huge gathering
And gave the message of love
Goes to prove
He remains invincible in both the states.
O Lord, bestow us Thy Invaluable CHRISTMAS DAY GIFT
The precious of all Thy Gifts
That Thee could only grant
The coveted gift of peaceful coexistence
In the whole world by Thy Grace
So that this world could be a better place to live,
A place where there is a prevalence of Eternal Love.
LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF LOVE & COMPASSION
Humans are the special creations which our Creator has created because they are bestowed with the faculty of thinking along with power of discrimination. If we acutely introspect as to how everything created is being taken care of by an unseen power, we would reach to a conclusion that Omnipotent and Omniscient One who controls everything around us and beyond. Although He remains an ‘unseen hand’ yet nobody disputes His existence though some may agree grudgingly but ultimately Prabhu’s imprint will remain indelible.
God deputes His chosen few, as His representatives, to spread the fragrance of His message. Such messengers are the embodiments of piety, purity and compassion. If we introspect deep into the lives of such messengers of God, one thing undoubtedly comes to the fore; such special messengers are apostle of peace in real sense of terms. Besides, in their lives they took upon themselves to cure various afflictions of humans – physical and mental. Such God’s ambassadors of peace withstood hardships during their life time, suffered for others and remained disciplined from their childhood onwards. Such special ones continued spreading the message of LOVE and also helped the general masses for self-realization by communing with God, notwithstanding the fact that it was not to the likings of people at the helm of affairs at that time.
These Sons of God did not care for their mundane pleasures but did everything to ameliorate the conditions of the hapless and destitute with their mystical prowess. Their message to the humanity was to be compassionate towards the needs of others besides urging the general masses to uphold their religious duties. One amongst the Messengers of God is the Jesus Christ.
In other words, it could be construed that God incarnates as great souls for spreading Divine Message on His behalf. It is a prime requirement of disillusioned minds who are immersed in the world of their own making and never realize that their mission in this world is to spread the message of humanity thereby understand the true purpose of our life on this planet.
The real purpose is to spread the fragrance of love to the fellow beings including all the creations created by our Lord with a consciousness that even intractable challenges of ours could be overcome if we have firm belief in His existence and associate Him in our day to day happenings. Sure enough, we would be surprised about the results of such actions.
Jesus Christ was the one who had won victory against material consciousness. He exists in the hearts and minds of multitudes. He said, ‘I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me.’ Christians including numberless others who have indomitable belief in His preaching shun delusions and follow His ideals. His presence is felt through his teachings. Those who have self realization know that in every speck of cosmos Christ Consciousness exists but only those who have vision can experience this. Christ Consciousness is a part of Cosmic Consciousness should never be lost sight of by us humans.
Jesus was born in 7 – 2 BC and was crucified in 30-33 AD in Jerusalem. He was born in Nazareth, Galilee to Parents Marry & Joseph.
His teachings are universal in nature; if we care to follow. If follow these in our day to day lives, we can make our life sublime.
Jesus Christ preached the importance of having compassion for our fellow beings. He taught that kindhearted feeling should always be there even for all including our enemies:-
Mark 6:34 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.
Colossians 3:12-13 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
- He is held to be the Son of God, a Messiah or Messenger of God, a charismatic healer:
Matthew 14:14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed the sick.
- Christ preached forgiveness and mercy. He even forgave those who harmed him immensely. No ill-feelings for anyone absolutely that is the message given:
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Daniel 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him
- Christ spread the message to judge others correctly it is fine if we judge others negatively then we will also be judged by our Creator on the Judgment Day then we have to face the music for every creature’s action is recorded in the consciousness of God.
Matthew 7:1-2 Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
Jesus Christ being a social reformer He had the unique quality of helping those who are suffering – it may be any kind of suffering.
Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
Even for healthy and prosperous family life He had a message (for young women who have to take responsibility to run a family’s affairs):
Titus 2:4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,

Merry Christmas Sir,
I heartily reciprocate the good wishes. May our Lord’s bounties remain on us all.
Your good wishes reciprocated, Harbans
Thanks sincerely. May His graces remain on us all – ever.
Merry Christmas! 🙂 ❤
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO.. :))
My pleasure. :))
Good morning dear Harbans and thanks for this great article. With this post you really topped yourself. Not only it contains an encyclopedic knowledge of a religion that is not your own but you also treat it with extreme respect and tolerance, the hallmark of a sage soul like yours.The scholarly religious tradition of your Brahmin- influenced household does show in your writings.god bless your mother and grandmothers for this patient nurturing of so many important concepts. I especially like the concept of a Super Soul was it Pahatma?) I believe that the Catholic Church veered too far off from its Eastern-Mystic traditions to embrace Cartesianism and Pure Rationality in the Renaissance. Following the teachings of Thomas Merton, I believe that we should go back to our mystic traditions in order to maintain the necessary balance. Have you read “The Seven Stories Mountain” already? Let’s remember that Christianity started with a few followers of Jesus Christ hiding in caves around the Sea of Galilee, practicing rituals that might be considered “too pagan” by today’s churches.
A big hug form your spiritual friend across the oceans.Merry Christmas to you and your family!
MERRY CHRISTMAS DR. SAHIB. May this CHRISTMAS bestows us sagacity to follow and spreading the message of LORD for all overall well-being. His grace may always be with us all. Amen. harbans
Sorry for the typo. It should read “God bless…”
GOOD MORNING. GOD BLESS YOU TOO. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Hello. It’s almost midnight here in Miami so we can raise a glass together to celebrate the advent of Christmas. Did you like my commentary?
MERRY CHRISMAS AGAIN. Your commentary has originated from your heart and I think it to be sincere. Although I am a Hindu Brahmin by birth yet I follow and imbibe everything good that I come across from any person, religious scriptures etc. This apart, I think every creation of our benevolent Creator is distinct and has usefulness. Every religion has got distinct identity but single PARAMATMA (SUPER SOUL, CREATOR, ISHWAR, ALLAHA, OR ANY OTHER YOU MAY WISH TO SAY HIM) it depends on your free-will. I do not consider myself as a person who has gone through everything that is contained in all the religious scriptures including that of Hinduism. I have not read all. Furthermore, I go through a particular book, try to follow in my life since having know-how is of no use till such time it is used practically in our lives. To be frank, I am a simple person, do not know the meaning of complex Mantras or rituals being followed in my religions even. I only pray on OM and it gives me immense satiety and whenever I fcus on any prayer ; in temples, churches or any other GOD’S ALTAR, it gives me the same LIGHT no difference at all anywhere. Thanks again for your good words. Only a true SOUL of our Lord can pen such thoughts. HARBANS
I will redpond properly tomorrow my dear friend. Merry Christmas!
Thanks Dr. Sahib. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Good morning my dear friend. Being simple doesn’t mean being silly. All the great prophets in the history of Mankind have been commoners, except Siddharta Gautama of course, that were illuminated by God Almighty to carry a message to the rest of us. and that’s the key point: we should not pay excessive attention to the messenger carrying it but to what he/she/sie is bringing us. Did you have the chance to read some of Merton’s writings? Whenever you can please read and comment my blog “The Impossible Love” because of it iS a central building block of my book, the one you will be making a preface to. Arrivederci
Good morning Dr. Sahib. My grateful thanks for your kind words. I go through the writings of Merton’s writings and enhance my know-how. I shall also appraise the write-up ‘The Impossible Love’ in the meanwhile. HARBANS
Dr. Sahib, as I had promised, I had promised to appraise some of the writings of renowned writer Merton. His spiritual inclination, knowledgeable about western civilization including Eastern oriental civilization is really praiseworthy and I would like to learn more from his gem of writins.
Happy Holidays, friend
I reciprocate the feelings. Regars
