These stories about the multiple shared lifetimes of Jesus and the Buddha’s reincarnations offer startling revelations about the universe, A Course in Miracles, and the path to enlightenment
Two and a half decades ago, Ascended Master Teachers Arten and Pursah appeared to Gary Renard and held a series of conversations with him that elaborated on the teachings of two spiritual classics, The Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. Gary immortalized what he learned in the books of his best-selling series: The Disappearance of the Universe, Your Immortal Reality, and Love Has Forgotten No One. This fourth book is a companion to the original trilogy, yet written to stand alone—an invitation for new readers into this fascinating work.
This book explores six of the lifetimes in which the incarnations of Jesus and Buddha lived together, beginning in 700 B.C. when they were known as Saka and Hiroji. Through the spiritual lessons that Jesus and Buddha learn on their path, Arten and Pursah clarify the difference between duality and nonduality. When you are able to internalize these lessons, you will be saved countless years in your spiritual development.

“This book is shocking, and that's what I like about it. How did Jesus become the Christ and how did the Buddha attain Buddhahood? Are their stories somehow connected? These are just a few of the questions that Gary Renard and his teachers, Arten and Pursah, pursue in this book. At the very least, they challenge our willingness to consider the impact these masters can have on our lives today, not just in ancient times. I really think you're going to enjoy this journey.”
—James F. Twyman, best-selling author of The Moses Code and Emissary of Light
“Arten and Pursah are back and better than ever, with their uncompromising message and pull-no-punches attitude, all the while reinforcing the importance of seeing in the light of pure nondualism. Additionally, they share with us a very intriguing and pleasantly surprising historical connection between Jesus and Buddha that the world doesn’t even know about! Gary is his usual humorous self, and as always, candidly shares his forgiveness opportunities that we can all learn from. Giddy up!”
—Mike Lemieux, author of Dude, Where’s My Jesus Fish?
