The story of Jesus has not waned in its power to change lives. Although many of us grew up in a culture suffused by the mythos of Jesus, today we feel disconnected from the essence and vitality of his teachings. With Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti invites us to rediscover the life and teachings of Jesus as a direct path to what may be the most radical of transformations: spiritual awakening.

Jesus crossed all of the boundary lines that separated the people of his time because he viewed the world from the perspective of what unites us, not what divides us. In nine captivating video sessions, Adyashanti invites us to consider the man known as Jesus as an exemplar of the realized state and a model of enlightened engagement with the world.

Adya begins by sharing his personal ties to the life and teachings of Jesus—and how his background in Zen Buddhism and his own journey of awakening inform his unique understanding of "what it means to be in true relationship with the eternal principle." He then unpacks the story of Jesus from his birth to the Resurrection, revealing how the key events in Jesus’ life parallel the stages of spiritual awakening—and what that might mean for each of us individually.

In our closing sessions, Adya illuminates the central archetypal figures of the Jesus story, including Peter, John, Mary Magdalene, Judas, and Pontius Pilate, and how they might be viewed as spiritual approaches at work within each of us. He concludes with a profound discussion of "the Christ Presence" and the embodiment of the universal Christ consciousness.

The Perennial Mystic Revelation: At One with the Divine

"Jesus symbolizes the spiritual mystery of each one of us," explains Adya, "and points us toward the radiance within that is available right now—the eternal saving grace through which we realize that we are each sons and daughters of a living God." With Resurrecting Jesus, now you have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore "the transmission of infinite love" that his story represents—and how that love revolutionizes our lives and our world.

Awe-inspiring interpretation of "the Jesus story". I feel deeply grateful for Adyashanti's "translation" of it into understandings that resonate deeply with me, in language that is accessible. It is wonderful to be able to hear and see him explaining the story as well, adds a whole other dimension than just reading the book! Thank you for making this available.

Thank you Adyashanti. You have confirmed my own spiritual journey as a liberal Christian and helped my sometimes conflict between my spiritual journey and organised religion. I see even more clearly now the full loving meaning of Jesus

This is a very interesting and profound take on the gospels (particularly Mark). It really relates a spirituality to Jesus that is at the heart of what we should work for. It is the process of enlightenment in a true, Christian and non-Christian, way. The various insights into Jesus and others in the gospel stories are well worth hearing.

This is the best purcahse I could have every made. He explains the Jesus story in a way that opens my consciousness and understanding at a whole new level. His teaching is amazing, and I love that it is given as a course. It helps me to integrate the teaching. I am very grateful. I highly recommend it.
