About Indian connection of Jesus:
First irrefutable evidence;
In 1894 Nicolas Notovitch published a book called The Unknown Life of Christ. He was a Russian doctor who journeyed extensively throughout Afghanistan, India, and Tibet.
Notovitch journeyed through the lovely passes of Bolan, over the Punjab, down into the arid rocky land of Ladak, and into the majestic Vale of Kashmir of the Himalayas.
During one of his journeys he was visiting Leh, the capital of Ladak, near where the Buddhist convent Himis is.
He had an accident that resulted in his leg being broken. This gave him the unscheduled opportunity to stay awhile at the Himis convent.
Notovitch learned, while he was there, that there existed ancient records of the life of Jesus Christ. In the course of his visit at the great convent, he located a Tibetan translation of the legend and carefully noted in his carnet de voyage over two hundred verses from the curious document known as "The Life of St. Issa."
He was shown two large yellowed volumes containing the biography of St. Issa.
Notovitch enlisted a member of his party to translate the Tibetan volumes while he carefully noted each verse in the back pages of his journal.

When he returned to the western world there was much controversy as to the authenticity of the document.
He was accused of creating a hoax and was ridiculed as an imposter. In his defense he encouraged a scientific expedition to prove the original tibetan documents existed.

One of his skeptics was Swami Abhedananda. Abhedananda journeyed into the arctic region of the Himalayas, determined to find a copy of the Himis manuscript or to expose the fraud.
His book of travels, entitled Kashmir O Tibetti, tells of a visit to the Himis gonpa and includes a Bengali translation of two hundred twenty-four verses essentially the same as the Notovitch text.
Abhedananda was thereby convinced of the authenticity of the Issa legend.

In 1925, another Russian named Nicholas Roerich arrived at Himis. Roerich, was a philosopher and a distinguished scientist.
He apparently saw the same documents as Notovitch and Abhedananda. And he recorded in his own travel diary the same legend of St. Issa. Speaking of Issa, Roerich quotes legends which have the estimated antiquity of many centuries.

Hollywood has produced a film on the missing years' of Jesus in Testaments.
Jesus was supposed to be in India from age 12 to 30 as mentioned in ancient Indian texts but skeptics didn't believe it.
Lead actor of the film and lead crew were involved in extensive research before making film.
Read what actor says;

Paul Davids (U.S.A, paul-davids/Jesus-lost-years):
The New Testament has a Black Hole from the ages 12 to 30 of Jesus' life. In the world of film we call that sort of omission a "jump cut." In Fundamentalism, they call it a part of Jesus' life that God doesn't think you need to know about, or God would have made sure it was included in the Bible.
On one page of the Gospel of Luke Jesus is 12 years old in the Temple in Jerusalem and then... nothing... nothing for 18 years until Jesus shows up at the River Jordan to be baptized by John the Baptist.

One critic accuses me of Biblical revisionism for examining the gap. But I'm not revising. How can you revise what isn't there? I'm probing to see if historical records and longstanding traditions of all kinds can help cure the omission.

During the benediction at the Inauguration of Barack Obama, Reverend Rick Warren referred to Jesus at one point by the  name Issa. (Check it and confirm it if you don't believe me.)

Saint Issa?
It's how they refer to him in the Muslim and Hindu worlds, and even the Buddhists are said to conceal a very ancient manuscript in a monastery high in the Himalayas called "The Life of Saint Issa, the Best of the Sons of Men."
The story of the existence of that manuscript, that fills in the missing years of Christ and describes his travels as a young man in India -- and even has Jesus exhorting the Hindus to stop worshiping idols and give up the caste system -- has been resoundingly debunked in much of the Christian world for nearly a century.
It's long overdue that the debunking stop. Our journey to India, following the trail of those who saw and translated the manuscript several times, gives a very convincing case that the manuscript does exist, and that it dovetails neatly with a long list of other kinds of evidence that put Jesus in India during that period of his life. If true, that journey of Jesus to the East was conveniently omitted from the New Testament.

You don't think Jesus could have reached India during his years as a young man? If he had remained in Judea, wouldn't he have been married off at age thirteen, the age all Jewish boys attain manhood? The silk road to India and beyond was much-traveled.
There were caravans of merchants. And if there were three Wise Men (the Magi) from the East who were present at Jesus' birth, doesn't it imply (as Indian sage Paramahansa Yogananda claimed) that a tug from the Orient was present in Jesus' life from the beginning? Then why would the Lord not return the visit? Especially since the oldest temples in the world, belonging to the oldest religions, were in India. 

And why did Jesus send Saint Thomas to India to preach the Gospel there after the crucifixion, if Jesus never knew the importance of India? Doubting Thomas preached in India for twenty years and died there. It's a well-supported fact. Take a look at Jesus in India and you'll begin to see what may have happened in those missing years of Jesus' life, and what may have been omitted (deliberately... or just lost?) from the story you've been told again and again since childhood.
Noted reviewer Pete Hammond describes the documentary Jesus in India as "fascinating and profound, a deeply spiritual journey" and the website of Paramahansa Yogananda calls the film "groundbreaking." But critic Jeff Wilser said before Christmas that it "would make Bill O'Reilly of FOX news choke on his eggnog." And Nancy Dewolf Smith writes in the Wall Street Journal that the film is a "cavalcade of crackpots" and "pseudo-history," ignoring that the film has such luminaries as the Dalai Lama, Princeton Professor Elaine Pagels, two professors at Georgetown University, an apostolic nuncio of Pope John Paul II, and of course the historic interview with the "Pope" of Hinduism (the Shankaracharya) who rather pointedly declares that Christian authorities have been guilty of a "coverup." (This is denied in my film by a Vatican representative, the late Apostolic Nuncio Corrado Balducci.)
However, as for the controversy about Jesus in India, surf over to www.jesus-in-india-the-movie.com and you'll see what's provoking both agony and ecstasy. You may discover why writer Len Kasten, in the March / April 2009 issue of Atlantis Rising, says: "this film, some think, has the potential to revolutionize Christianity..."
