    Please state your free opinion.
    At the time of Jesus India was the only country that had evolved spiritually naturally Jesus was attracted towards India to learn the vedas and upanishads . All that you see in Jesus ‘s sayings is in the upanishads we have to notice that he has localised the teachings so that his people could understand them. I ‘ve read that Jesus lived near kashmir and there are proofs that after ressurection he was brought to India by his diciples.
    How about the time other than Gupta period?
    Education at Nalanda was free then and you had to be enrolled 16 years.
