Is Hindu Prajapati same as Christ in Bible?


by T.S. Balan, ©1997

The presence of heresies in the church is nothing new. Since the birth of the church, heresies have been there, and a new Indian addition would not make much difference. However, it is not desirable to put up with every wind of doctrine, lest the church should just disappear from the face of the earth. Hence, it is high time we identified and rooted out the Cult of Prajapati.

What is it?

It may, perhaps, be a bit difficult to fully understand the cult of Prajapati unless we know a bit about the Vedas of the Aryans, for it is on the Vedas that the very foundation of the heresy is based.
According to the advocates of the heresy, the Prajapati, who is one of the 33 gods of the Vedas, is Jesus Christ Himself. They claim that the Prajapati was offered by the gods as a sacrifice and he has got a lot of characteristics that proves beyond doubt that the Prajapati is Jesus, the Son of God. Before going deep into the heresy, it is necessary to get acquainted with the sacred books of the Aryans.

The Vedas

There are four Vedas:
1. The Rig Veda:It is believed that the Rig Veda is the oldest book in the world, though many scholars do not agree with it. The Aryans who migrated to India in 1500 B.C. composed these verses in order to seek help from their gods to defeat the Dravideans, who were the original inhabitants of India. The majority of the verses of this veda are hymns praising gods like Indra, Agni, Pughan, Varuna etc and we Christians have got nothing to do with it.
2. Yajur Veda:It contains chiefly the rules and regulations to offer sacrifices to the gods. The Aryans thought that the gods ate the sacrifices offered by them and it is Agni, the god of the fire who carried the food to heaven.
3. Sama Veda:Majority of this book contain hymns taken from the Rig Veda. In fact there are only a few original hymns that are not found in other vedas.
4. Atharva Veda:Just like any other primitive people, the Aryans also had great faith in spells and charms and the Atharva Veda contains such materials. This Veda is still used to cast spells and curses.
The BrahmanasEach of the vedas contain its interpretation as well, which are called the Brahmanas and some of the major teachings of the cult of Prajapati is drawn from them. The most important among them are the Itareya Brahmana and the Satapatha Brahmana.
The AranyakasThe Sanskrit word 'Aranyam' means forest. The Aranyakas are powerful spells and charms which are to be recited only in the forest. If 8ung in the human inhabited area, the demons will cause destruction.
The Upanishaths
It is believed that there are thousands of Upanishaths, though less than hundred are discovered. The Upanishaths contain philosophical dialogue.
Other Books
In addition to these books, there are a lot of other books which the Hindus consider as sacred. They include the Ramayana, the Mahabharatha, the Gita which is a portion of the Mahabharatha, 18 Puranas and 18 Upapuranas.

Different Schools
The devotees of Prajapati are divided into at least three groups. They are the Mukti faction, the Devist faction and the Achan faction (which is a compromise between the first two). The Muktists accept the first three Vedas (the Brahmanas, some of the Upanishads and Gurugeetha, a book of later origin). Even the Koran is accepted, as long as it serves their purpose. The Devists, who are a little more organised, add to the list, the Gita, and some of the Puranas etc. The Achan faction has not clarified their stand on this matter so far, though they also accept at least a partial inspiration of these books. In short, the devotees of Prajapati, who claim to be Christians, are in fact the worshippers of Prajapati, just another Christ, who is one of the 33 gods of the Aryans.
Regarding the authority of these books, these factions differ from one to another. The Muktists consider some portions of these books as Divine revelation, while the Devists regard all of them as fully Divine. The Achan faction is somewhere in the middle.
Though the heresy existed decades ago, it gathered momentum only a few years ago. It took the form of a cult recently, when some of these so-called scholars accepted Prajapati, the god of the ancient Aryans, as their Lord and saviour. The common men were deceived by the lies spread by these scholars.
Claimed characteristics of Prajapati to Jesus Christ
The core of the heresy is the teaching that the Prajapati of the Vedas has got some characteristics that points at Jesus Christ. God, who is the God of the whole universe, revealed to the Aryans on God's future plan for the salvation of mankind. But the Bible says that no such revelation was given to any of the gentiles. The word of God was given to the Jews only. (Ps.147:19,20; Rom.3:1,2). For the sake of argument, we shall agree with the devotees of Prajapati that the word of God was given to the Aryans. However, that does not solve the problem at all, for all the so called characteristics are nothing but lies:
1. Prajapati is sinless?
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, did not commit any sin and if the Prajapati of the Vedas is also sinless, it will be a positive evidence that the Prajapati is Christ. So, the advocates of the heresy tried their level best to make the Prajapati sinless. They took some portions from the vedas or Upanishads and gave Prajapati a clean sheet. However, the truth is just opposite. For example, see Itareya Brahmana:3.2.9.
Here the Prajapati is seen taking his own daughter as his wife, and on seeing this, the other gods objected. They tried to prevent Prajapati from committing such a sin, but he did not agree with them. So the gods got angry and tried to kill Prajapati, but they could not. So, they got united together and created Rudra. He succeeded in killing Prajapati.
Now the question that arises is this: Can this Prajapati, who was killed by the gods for committing incest with his own daughter, be considered as the type of Jesus Christ? Has his death got anything to do with our Lord's sacrifice? How can anybody stoop so low as to propagate that such a god is Jesus Christ, the Son of God? However, the devil, the father of lies and the classic deceiver, comes to the rescue of his people. He made them say that there are so many Prajapaties in the Vedas and the one who committed incest with his daughter is not the Purusha Prajapati, the creator of the universe. But this argument also does not hold water since the next few verses of the same Brahmana states clearly that this is Purusha Prajapati who created man. The Brahmana says that the woman could not hold the semen of the Prajapati since the quantity was great. So it fell down and became a lake. From this, man came into existence. Is it not the real Prajapati?

In addition to it, the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad provides us with further details of the sin of Prajapati. See: 1. 4. 2 - 4. When Prajapati was alone, he got afraid. He divided his body into two. One half became a man and the other half a woman. From their union, human beings came into existence. When woman disliked Prajapati, she ran away and took the form of a cow. The Prajapati became an ox and united with her. The cows were created in this way. The woman later took the forms of every kind of animal, bird, etc and the Prajapati also changed accordingly. All the living things came into existence in this way. Now, the question is this: Is this Prajapati and Jesus one and the same? Of course, not!
2. The Crown of Thorns
Jesus was crowned with a wreath of thorns and if one could prove that the Prajapati also had such an experience, it would be easy to prove that the Prajapati is Christ. So, the devotees of Prajapati tried their level best to locate something like that, but they could not. At last, they had to be content with the grass rope that was used to fasten the sacrificial horse to the pole.
According to the Satapathabrahmana, the sacrificial horse must be tied to the pole using a rope made of grass and cooked rice. In fact it has got nothing to do with the crown of thorns that Jesus wore, but the devil used it to deceive the ignorant lots. If the horse is Prajapati, that Prajapati can never be Jesus because the other characteristics of the horse cannot be found in Jesus. For example, while the horse is given a bath before the sacrifice, a dead dog must be passed between its leg. Moreover, the method used to kill the horse is also quite different. The horse is killed by suffocating it. These characteristics do not match with Jesus!
However, the dirtiest part is yet to come. After the horse is killed, the body will be covered with a cloth. The wife of the person who offers the horse as a sacrifice, will lie down with the dead body of the horse in order to have sexual intercourse with the horse. This is to continue till day break. In the meantime, the wife and the husband will curse each other in filthy language. Now, the question, once again, is this: Is the horse a shadow of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ? No.
3. The Rejection
In fact, there is nothing in this so called characteristic. A person or animal can never be sacrificed without rejecting it. Jesus rejected everything and offered Himself as a sacrifice. In the case of animals, people reject it and sacrifice, because, no body can do otherwise. However, the devotees of Prajapati make it something unusual, because, in Itareya Brahmana, a cow is offered as a sacrifice with the consent of its relatives. The problems that are seen here is this: 1. It is not Prajapati, but a cow. 2. The cow is not rejected, but just allowed by its relatives. 3. The cow was unwilling and afraid in the beginning, according to the Itareya Brahmana, but Jesus was neither unwilling nor afraid. 4. The cow is killed by suffocating it. In short, the cow can never be Jesus Christ.
4. The Silent Sufferer
Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice and suffered everything willingly. So it is necessary to show that the Prajapati also did something like that. After searching a lot, the devil found something similar in Rig Veda 5.46. "Like a horse, I have yoked myself, well knowing to, the pole. I seek neither release nor turning back". If the Prajapati has ever said something like that, it is well and good. But that has never happened. In that case, what does the text say? Rig Veda. 5.46 has got nothing to do with Prajapati. The author of the Sukta is a person called Prathikhatra and he speaks about himself. Prathikhatra is the one who is tied to the yoke like a horse, not Prajapati. However, the devil deceives the people who have never seen the Vedas. He knows that most of the people would not be able to verify the fact from the Vedas.

Moreover, the devotees of Prajapati never dare to quote the rest of the Sukta. Do you know why? The Devists and the Muktists propagate that there is only one God in the Vedas and it is the Prajapati himself. The Vedas say that the one who is able to save is the Prajapati alone. If anyone reads the rest of the sukta, this argument will prove to be false. The sukta calls upon Agni, Indra, Varuna, Mitra, Vishnu, Maruths, Rudra, Pughav, and the wives of all these gods to come to the rescue and provide salvation. The sukta, that is written to glorify other gods, has got nothing to do with Jesus Christ.
5. Close to the Cross
There is no mention of any kind of cross in the Vedas, but it is necessary to bring some kind of a cross into the Vedas in order to crucify the Prajapati. Hence the search began and found something at last. The sacrificial animal used to be tied to a pole. In fact, there is nothing unusual in this. If the animal is not tied, it will run away. The butchers, even nowadays, use this method to kill animals. But the Devists and the Muktists project this matter as something remarkable because there is a scope for deceiving ignorant people. Though the Yupa, the pole, in the Vedas is considered as a god (Rig. 3:8), it is never mentioned by the devotees of Prajapati.
The animal is tied to the pole, but Jesus was nailed to the cross. The pole, which is a god, has got nothing to do with the cross.
6. The Blood
It is not possible to offer sacrifice withoutshedding blood, and there is nothing extra ordinary in shedding blood in sacrifices. The Prajapati, who was killed by the Devas for committing thegin of incest with his own daughter, would haveshed blood, but unfortunately, it is not mentioned in the Vedas. So, it was found necesary to find some blood somewhere. At last, blood was found in Brhadaranyaka Upanishad. Here, man is compared to a tree. Man has hair on his head and the tree has got leaves instead. Both the tree and the man has skin as well. The sap of the tree is like the blood of the man.
When a tree is cut, sap oozes, just like the blood that flows from an injured man. There is no mention of Prajapati here. There no sacrifice as well. But, the Devil uses some of these verses to deceive the gullible.
7. The Bones
Jesus' bones were not broken. So it is better to keep the bones of the Prajapati unbroken, by hook or by crook. So the crooked Devil discovered something in Itareya Brahmana. There is a cow (see item No. 3, above), that was sacrificed with the consent of its relatives. 26 bones of this cow is taken from the body and put in a line. We do not know, whether the bones were broken or not. Moreover, it is not clear what happens to the other bones. But all these do not matter, as far as the Devil is concerned. He once again "proves" that the bones of the Prajapati were not broken.
8. The Man Alive
According to the Hindus, life does not end at death. The spirit will be born again in this world as some kind of an animal or even human being. This belief of the Hindus is taken out of context by the Devists and the Muktist and interpreted that the Prajapati returned to life after the sacrifice. A portion of the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad is also taken out of context. (see item No. 6). If a tree is cut down, it will come to life again.

But when a man is cut down, how can he come to life? He will live again, because his spirit will re- incarnate. Here, neither Prajapati nor any sacrifice is mentioned. The man is just compared to a tree. Since most of the people are ignorant of the contents of the Vedas, the devil and his agents deceive them by spreading lies and taking portions of the Vedas out of context.
9. The Flesh of the Man
This lie is connected with the Lord's supper. According to the Aryans, their gods depended upon the sacrifices offered by men for their food. Hence, they ate even the Prajapati after the sacrifice. This is quite different from the Lord's supper. In the vedas, the gods killed and ate Prajapati, but in Christianity, it is not the Jews, who killed Jesus, ate the Holy Supper, but the believers. Moreover, there is nothing special in eating the flesh of the sacrificed animals because, even today, such a custom prevails all over the world. Hence, eating the flesh of the Prajapati does not hold much water.
10. The Cloth of the Prajapati
Some of the devotees of Prajapati lie that that the clothes of the Prajapati were divided among four priests, though none of them have ever said where such an incident is mentioned. Even some of the Prajapati factions deny this characteristic, though the biggest Pentecostal denomination in India has included Prajapati, along with this characteristic (including others) in their Sunday School Text book!
11. The Untorn Vesture
There is yet another lie that the vesture of the Prajapati was not torn. None of the Hindu scriptures mention anything like that. Some of the factions do not accept this characteristic, though the Devist faction accepts this as a fact. According to them, the skin of a cow (see item No. 3 & 7) was removed untorn and that proves beyond doubt that the Prajapati's vesture was kept untorn. However, it is not mentioned in the text whether the skin of the cow was torn or not. Even if the skin was not torn, that does not prove that the Prajapati's vesture was kept untorn because skin is not vesture and there is no Prajapati here, only a cow.
12. Nailed to the Cross?
The devotees of the Prajapati know very well that the Prajapati's hands and legs were nailed to the pole, but none of them could, so far, locate the incident from the Vedas. However, that does not make much difference to them. They still preach and teach that the hands and legs of the Prajapati was nailed to the cross and due to this reason the Prajapati is Christ.
13. The Soma Juice
The Aryans used to drink a kind of juice made out as a kind of intoxicating drink. soma juice as sacrifice to the a an the king of the Devas is praised as a great soma drinker. But there is no mention of the Prajapati drinking the soma juice, nor any animal which was provided with such a drink. Yet, the devil uses his servants to spread the utter lie that the Prajapati was made to drink soma juice when he was sacrificed. The Sunday school text book of the greatest Pentecostal church in India includes this lie (including the others) to be taught in the Sunday school..
14. Son of a Virgin?
Some of the servants of the Prajapati teach that their lord, the prajapati of the Vedas, was the son of a virgin ... even though they do not say where this matter is recorded in the Vedas or in other Hindu scriptures. In fact, there is nothing of this sort mentioned in the Vedas.

Non-existent Slokas
In addition to the misinterpretations given to the slokas found in the Vedas, many of the devotees of the Prajapati cook up new slokas to be spread as Vedic mantras. For example, the famous sloka starting with praising the son of the Virgin (Om shri kanyaka Sudhaya namaha) is never found in any of the vedas. The Mantra (Papoham Papakarmo am) said to be sung by North Indian Brahmins while taking the bath is also pure lie. Hence, the cult of Prajapati is a lie, founded on lies and spread by liars.
The Purusha Sukta
The Prajapati Cult depends much on a portion of the Rig Veda known as the Purusha Sukta (Rig. 10: 90). Hence, we shall see what the text actually says: "A thousand heads has Purusha, a thousand feet. Encompassing the Earth from all sides, he exceeds it by ten fingers breadth. This Purusha is all that has been and what is to be. This Lord of immortality waxes ever greater by food. So vast is the measure of his greatness, and still greater is Purusha. All creatures are a fourth of him, three-fourths are in the eternal heaven. Three-fourths of him ascended high, one-fourth remained here down on the earth. From this he spread to every side over living and non-living things. From him, Virat, the shining was born and from this again Purusha was born. As soon as he took birth he spread himself over the entire Earth both before and behind. The gods prepared the sacrifice with this Purusha as their oblation. The spring was the clarified butter, summer the fuel, and the autumn the offering".
"This purusha, born in the earliest time, the gods embalmed on the grass as sacrifice and performed their holy rites, so also did the Seers and Sages. From that universal sacrifice, the curd dripping with butter was collected. Thence came the creatures of the air, and beasts both domestic and wild. From this universal sacrifice were born the Vedic Richas and Saman hymns, and from this came the various meters, and from this were born spells and sacred formulas. From this were born horses, all creatures such as have two rows of teeth. From it sprang cows, from it the sheep and goats were born.
When they divided up Purusha, in how many parts did they divide him? What did his mouth become? What of his arm? What were his legs called? What of his feet? The Brahmin was his mouth, his arms the heroic prince his thighs became the Vaishya, from his feet came the humble Shudra. The Moon was born from his mind, the Sun was born from his eye. Indra and Agni were born from his mouth, and the Wind from his breath. From his navel came forth the air, the heaven was formed from his head, the Earth from his feet, the four directions from his ear. Thus were formed the worlds. Seven were the fencing-sticks, thrice seven the sticks of fuel were formed, when the gods performed sacrifice, bound Purusha as their victim. Thus the gods in the sacrifice, sacrificed the victim. They were the earliest established rites. "The Mighty ones ascended up the heaven where dwell the gods and other celestial beings."
In the Purusha sukta, there is more than one Purusha. 1. The first Purusha, who has a thousand heads and thousand eyes. 2. The Virat, the shining, who was born from the first Purusha. 3. The third Purusha who was offered as a sacrifice. No one has so far clarified who the Purusha Prajapati is. The Cult has just ignored the problem since it is difficult to explain the matter.
The origin of the caste system is seen in the sukta. The Hindu society was originally divided into four castes, which in the course of time gave way to the birth of so many castes and sub-castes. The sukta says that all the creatures of the earth came into existence from the sacrifice of the Purusha. Even spells and sacred formulas originated from this sacrifice.

It is strange to note that the famous Purushasukta that describes the sacrifice of the Prajapati does not mention any of the so called characteristics of the Prajapati. But on the other hand there are a lot of materials in the sukta that disproves the cult of Prajapati.
The Meaning of the word "Prajapati"
When it is proved that the prajapati of the vedas has got nothing to do with Jesus Christ of the Bible, the devil usually pus forth another theory, which has so far baffled so many people. The argument is this: the sanskrit word "prahapati" means the ruler of the Praja, ie; the ruler of the subjects. Jesus is the ruler of everything and they mean just that only. Hence, Prajapati is Christ. However, this argument does not hold much water. The masterpiece of the Mukti leader is "Christ in the ancient Vedas", and the name reveals who their Christ is. It is not the Christ found in the Bible, but another Christ said to exist in the ancient Vedas. One of the books of the Devist faction is "The Christ of the Arya Vedas". All these books praise the god of the Vedas, the Purusha Prajapati, and they preach him as the Christ. Hence, the argument that the meaning of the word Prajapati fits Jesus and it is he, who is preached by the cult, does not hold much water.
Now, we shall see what the word Prajapati means: According to the Sabtataravali, the word has 14 different meanings.
1. Brahma 
2. the Rishis that Brahma created
3. the sun
4. Manu 
5. Vishwakarma
6. king
7. penis
8. son in law 
9. father
10. vishnu
11. sacrifice
12. butterfly 
13. a holy spring 
14. Indra
Among these, we are not told, which one is accepted by the cult. Since there are so many Prajapatis in the Hindu religion and the word prajapati has so many meanings, it is better to leave all of them to their fate.
Who is the Prajapati?
Since the study of Prajapati has progressed this much, it would not be proper to conclude without explaining who the real Prajapati is. So, we shall go a little more deeper into the subject.
Most of the ancient religions of the world originated from Babylon. After the failure of the Babel Project, mankind dispersed to all corners of the earth. The leader of the rebellion was Nimrod, who was the first king of the world. (Gen. 10: 8. 1 0). In due course of time, he, along with his wife, became the "other gods" that we often see in the Bible. Dagon, Baal, Kemosh etc are in fact Nimrod. For details, please see "Two Babylons" (or Mahatiyam Babylon, in Malayalam). Tammuz is also Nimrod. In Egypt, he was known as Osiris. In China, he is Yin. The Pashupati of the Harappan people is, in fact, Nimrod. The Aryans called him Purusha Prajapati. His wife is Prakriti. Recently, the images of both the Purusha Prajapati and Prakriti were placed at Paramekkavu Temple, in Trichur District of Kerala State (India).
The word Prajapati means the "ruler of the subjects", ie; king. Who is he? He is the original king, Nimrod, who rebelled against God and was stained. (See Two Babylons). His body was cut into many pieces and the story of Osiris and Isis of Egypt gives us much details on this matter. According to Middle East Mythology, the god Baal was killed and descended into Hades, though he came to life later. The women of Israel used to mourn on the death of Tammuz (Ez.8:14).
The Purushasukta describes how Prajapati was killed by the Devas. They divided his body into many parts. His face became the Brahmin, his hands the Kshatriyas, his thighs the Vaishyas and his feet the Sudras. Other animals, the sun, the moon, etc. also originated from his body.
If we can borrow the other god's names and use it to address Jesus, it will lead us to great dangers. For example, the word BAAL means, LORD. Who is the Lord? We know that it is our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Can we preach: "Believe in Baal and you will be saved". It means nothing but "Believe in the Lord and you will be saved". The prayer, "O, Baal, hear us" (I Ki-18:26) means '0, Lord, hear us", but the Lord did not hear them.It proves that we cannot give Jesus the names of the other gods, though the meaning is good. So, it is blasphemy to call our Lord, Jesus Christ, Prajapati or Baal or anything like that. The god of the Vedas, who was killed for taking his own daughter as wife, has nothing to do with the God of the Bible and Jesus Christ does not need his name.
Is it a Cult?
The most dangerous part of all is that this heresy is considered as purely Christian and the Devists, Muktists and the Achanists are accepted in the evangelical circles. It seems that the church leaders have lost the spirit of discernment. Anybody who can quote some things from the Bible is accepted as born again Christians and given a platform to teach and preach. The leader of the Muktist faction was given the leadership of the prayer group in a great Pentecostal convention last year. One of his followers, who branded those who opposed the cult of Prajapati as anti-socials, had to pay a very heavy compensation recently as out of court settlement in a forgery case. In spite of all, these cult leaders are still considered as the part and parcel of the church. It is high time that we discerned the spirit of Prajapati and cast him out, along with his servants. Many a people doubt whether this heresy can be branded as a cult. So, we shall look into this matter.

It is heresy
First of all, it is heresy. Have a closer look at the teachings of the devotees of Prajapati:
1. They preach another Christ, who is not the son of Abraham or the son of David. Prajapati is not the Son of God who offered himself as a sacrifice. He is another Christ, who was killed for committing incest with his daughter.
2. The Devists teach that Jesus Christ was created by God the Father on the first day of the creation.
3. The devotees of Prajapati teach that the Bible is not the only word of God. They accept either fully or partly the Vedas as the word of God.
4. These cults accept Prajapati, Indra, Narayana, Mukunda, Surya(sun), Agni, Kan, Mahabali etc as God.
5. The Devists teach that salvation can be achieved by believing in any one of these gods because these are different names given to the same God.
Now, the question is this: Is it a heresy? If not, then what is a heresy?
It is a cult
Can it be both a heresy and a cult at the same time? Yes, it is quite possible. Take the example of Jehovah Witnesses. Their doctrines are heretical. At the same time they are a cult. We have already seen that the teachings of the devotees of Prajapati is heretical. Now, we shall see whether it is a cult.
Josh McDowell and Don Stewart have listed in their book, Concise Guide to Today's religions, some common features of cults. We shall see if these features match the devotees of Prajapati. The features listed by them are as follows:
1. New Revelation
The identffication of the vedic god as the saviour of mankind is quite new, while preaching Jesus as Christ is about two thousand years old.
2. New interpretation of the Bible
The devotees of Prajapati give so many new interpretations to the Bible. The light that was created by God on the first day is Jesus ... Man committed sin due to the inability of Jesus and due to this reason, he was killed ... the first beast in Rev. 13 is Satan etc.
3. Depends on other writings
The cults will not agree that the Bible is the only word of God. Same is the case with the cult of Prajapati. All the factions of this cult, such as the Devists, the Muktists and the Achanists argue that the Bible alone is not the word of God. They accept the Vedas, the Brahmanas, the Upanishads etc as fully or partly God inspired.
4. Another Christ
Since we have discussed this points in detail, it is not necessary to add anything here.

5. Denies fundamental beliefs
The fundamental beliefs that are denied by this cult are many. Examples: denial of the eternal existence of Jesus Christ, acceptance of other religious books as word of God, preaching of another Christ etc.
6. Double faced
The leaders of cults will have two faces, the one outsiders see and the real face they try to hide. The face that is shown outside by the leaders of the cult of Prajapati is very beautiful, but the real face is quite ugly. They seem to be good Christians, who are very much interested in preaching the gospel all over the world. But in fact, they are preaching just another gospel and deny most of the fundamental beliefs of the Church.
7. Introduced new god
We have seen that the Christ of the devotees of Prajapati is not Jesus Christ. Likewise, the god of this cult is not the God of the Bible. Their god is the god of the ancient Aryans, the Purusha of the Purushasukta, who can be called Narayana, Mukunda, Bhaskara, Brhahman, and what not.
8. Everlasting theology
The theology of the cults will change according to the changing situations. All the factions of the cult of Prajapati have changed their theology many times and none of them have come to a final decision yet. This fact can be verified from the books and tracts these cults have published from time to time.
9. Strong leadership
A cult cannot prosper without a strong leader. All the factions of the cult of Prajapati have very able leaders. In fact, the foundation of these cults is its leader. That is why we have identified these cults as Devism, Muktism and Achanism.
10. Salvation by works
These cults, like other cults, depend on work for salvation. They teach that the sages of the Aryan period were holy people and due to that reason, God spoke to them. Achanism clarifies that in every man there is a ray of divine light and that is why God spoke to Cornelius. In order to be saved, there must be the pre-qualification of having this ray, without which God will not consider a person for providing salvation. None of these cults believes in salvation by grace alone.
11. False prophecy
By the term false prophesy, we mean the revelations received from sources other than the God of the Bible. On questioning about the authority of the teachings of the cult, these heretics always maintain that they are specially anointed by God for an end time ministry. Since this revelation is not in harmony with the word of God, it is clear that they are false prophets, who received revelations from the devil himself. Morevover, they often state that special grace is required to see Jesus in the Vedas.
The church of God is espoused to Jesus Christ and as soon as the simplicity that we have in Christ Jesus is lost, we become unchaste. (2 Cor. 11:2,3). We cannot accept somebody else, even if he resembles Jesus to some extent. We have already seen that the Prajapati of the Vedas is not Jesus Christ of the Bible. Even if Prajapati resembled Jesus, we cannot accept him because he is another Christ.
See what Paul says on the subject: "Now, the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy ..." (1 Tim. 4: 1). This prophecy has come true in front of our own eyes, in the form of the cult of Prajapati. The leaders of the church have failed to discern this spirit of anti-christ in time. So the Prajapati gained acceptance in the evangelical circles as a "Peace Baby", or "Indian Cup" and the leaders of this dangerous cult were admitted everywhere as dedicated missionaries.
"You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils; you cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils." (1 Corinthians 10:21).
It is high time we recognize the spirit of anti-christ and cast him out, along with his servants.

My Dear Friend


                Everyone who believes in existence of God follows some kind of doctrine. Why? It is because they want to live peacefully and also to reach heaven. For this they follow the doctrine and try to live virtuous life. There are so many different doctrines in this world. Identifying a good doctrine is hard; it is only known to the person who is following the doctrine or to the one who prays to God the almighty that created this world to show him the doctrine he needs to follow. If someone finds a good doctrine which definitely takes him to heaven and he is enjoying, shouldn’t he inform his beloved about this new doctrine or not? The person who doesn’t share this happiness with his friends is treacherous one.

                                                                                Your friend who doesn’t want to be treacherous,            

Story of two friends

            There were two best friends named Edward and Jerry living in a small town.

            One day, Edward came across a sage who was exhausted due to his tiresome journey. He took pity on that saint and took him home, fed him and did services. The saint admired Edward, his wife and his children for the services they had rendered and had preached him one axiom, a doctrine that was quite exquisite. He had told him that whoever had followed that doctrine would certainly acquire the place in Heaven, in the same way; he also told him that they would live peacefully there upon. Not just that, he had also told him that to whomever Edward would teach this doctrine, all those would have the access to the Heaven.

                Edward decided that he should not only follow it but also preach such great doctrine to his best friend Jerry. But he knew that Jerry was content to follow the doctrine of his ancestors. Because Edward knew this, he hesitated to share the new doctrine that he was following. But Jerry was his best friend; he had an ambition that Jerry also would come along with him to the Heaven. Even Jerry also had known that Edward has been following a new doctrine. Jerry hesitated to ask Edward about the new doctrine he was following because he feared that Edward would feel bad. And so, he never enquired about it. While they both kept silent, time was passing.

                Both Edward and Jerry died and their spirits stood in front of God for judgment. God called Edward, “You are treacherous friend because you didn't even try to reveal to your best friend that would lead him to the Heaven, an access to the Heaven, at least once. You should have told him about the doctrine you have been following. So, as you are a treacherous friend, you just deserve the Hell.”

                In the same way, God told to Jerry, “You have complete knowledge that Edward had been following one new doctrine! But you had never questioned him about it or enquired to find if it was good or bad. He is your best friend and you never wished to find whether he had chosen the right doctrine or not and you never felt that you should correct him if he were wrong. So, even you are a treacherous friend. So you too deserve Hell!” Saying so, God had sent both of them into the Hell. Both these friends, scolding each other, have been suffering in Hell ever since then!

-----------------End of Story of two friends -----------------

                Dear friend, is it possible that a silence has spread over the two of us, just like between the two friends in the story? You are not asking me about my faith, and I have not had the courage to tell you. If I don't share my faith, my God will not be pleased with me. My dear friend, do you like anything as such to happen to me? If not, you listen to what I say about the doctrine that I have been following at least once, and relieve me from my responsibility. I would never urge you to follow my doctrine because, that is related to you and God. In the same way, you preach me about the doctrine you have been following. In this way, let both of us relieve ourselves from our collateral responsibilities.

                We should spend hundreds of hours sharing our life stories. I won’t ask that of you. But I would like to briefly share my faith with you, if you would be kind enough to read on… 

Story of a Prince

                Once upon a time, there was a king who had a son who was the apple of his eye. The king also loved his citizens. The king and the prince looked after the people as their own children.

                As there were no sins, in his kingdom, there was peace and harmony in the kingdom. But eventually, sin entered into the kingdom due to sly plotting by enemy kingdoms. The people had got habituated to do sins. There were theft, fornication, murders and violence etc. The king had understood that the peace and harmony had diminished. So he had decided to imprison all those who had committed sins and decided to punish them. At the time of the implementation of the punishments, the sinners used to beg for pardon.

                The king used to take pity at their piteous situation. He used to show pity on them, instead of punishing or imprisoning, he used to warn them and commanding them not to repeat the sins; he used to pardon them and release them. Though there was no change in the situation, they never stopped committing crimes. The citizens used to commit sins and used to ask the king for forgiveness, this had become their habit. In such critical and complex situation, the king had decided that he shouldn't bestow them forgiveness freely and there should be some penalty they have to bear as a sort of punishment and for this a penance and atonement is introduced. 

            Even these punishments couldn't bring any sort of change in the situation and the citizens didn't stop committing sins. For that reason, the king gave them further severe punishments. One of the punishments is that the sinner must offer one of his animals which are the source of his livelihood. Due to this reason, some people were scared and had stopped committing sins. The reason was, wasn't it difficult for them to part from the animals which were the source of their livelihood and which they had brought up with extreme love and care, wasn't it? 

But most of them continued committing their sins. Don't the rich have numerous animals? It had become quite common thing to sacrifice those animals. It had become a natural part of their life.

In this bad situation, the king sent his ministers to the people to preach to them to not commit sin. Some people had changed after they had heard their words. But some people had no change in their behavior used to attack the ministers and murder them. The king was outrageous at this. With that rage, he could have killed them but by seeing some people, who had changed, he showed mercy upon them due to the love he had for them, he had pardoned them. He had sentenced only those who had committed terrible and dreadful crimes alone to death. The king was not willing to punish his citizens. He desired that they would change. 

Because of his love for his citizens, the King sent his beloved son to them. The Prince had given up his authority and had lived among the citizens just like as if he was a part of them. As one among them he had been living without committing sins and had been teaching those good practices.

When they met the prince, most of the people repented from their ways. Some people had even transformed into his helpers with his preaching. The Prince had been touring in the kingdom along with them, he used to teach good path and the love his father had for the citizens. The main points of his preaching were:

* You must love your God with your whole heart, mind, and spirit.
* You must love your neighbor as yourself. You must forgive each other instead of seeking revenge.

If you all follow these willfully and wholeheartedly, you would never commit any sin. One whoever is, by loving God willfully and considering his neighbors as himself, won't he look after his own mother and father well? Does he steal? Does he adulterate or fornicate? Can he murder any one? Can they speak false witnesses?
Now let us consider one parable, the Prince had given here.

 "A slave owed a lot of money to a master and he was brought to the master. As he did not have anything to repay his loan, the master had ordered him to sell his wife, his children and his entire property and repay his loan. So, that slave lay prostrate before him and appealed to give him some more time and told him that he would repay the whole sum. When he had appealed the master so, he took pity on the slave and had forgiven him and had acquitted him, and also had written down the loan. But that slave, as soon as he went out, he held the throat of another slave who was in debt to him some small amount. For that the other slave lay prostrate before him and had requested him to give him some more period of time and had appealed him that he would repay soon entirely, but that slave didn't agree and he had him imprisoned until his loan is repaid.
 By seeing this, his co-slaves grieved to great extent, they all immediately approached their master and informed him about this in detail. The master immediately summoned him calling him, "You the wicked! You had appealed to me and I had taken pity on you and had forgiven you and had got your entire loan written off. Exactly, as I had forgiven you, you too could have forgiven your co-slave, couldn't you? Thus saying, he had got him thrown into prison.”

            Among yourselves too, if each and every one wouldn't forgive your brother whole heartedly, my father also would repay the same to you too, thus the Prince had given parable.  

            With his preaching’s he informed them that love of his father is great, and the father would forgive them all if they had acquired the repentance and change of heart.

He told them another story about his father’s love.

"There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, 'Father, give me my share of the estate.' So he divided his property between them. "Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. "When he came to his senses, he said, 'How many of my father's hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.' So he got up and went to his father. "But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.  "The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' "But the father said to his servants, 'Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.'"

In the same way when a sinner acquires the change of heart and repentance, the father also would be happy. By giving such numerous parables, he had appealed them to have repentance.

But, some people who couldn't stand his preaching had subjected him to extreme acrimonious and cruel death. The King's heart trembled with sorrow when he saw his son in his death bed. The king, with sorrow and anger, decided to terminate all those sinners who were responsible for this situation of his son. His anger had shattered and trembled the whole earth.

But, the Prince who was in the death bed appealed to his father, "Father, they are ignorant of what they are doing, please forgive them. These words melted the hearts of those who heard them. One among the conspirators responsible for the death of the prince had started crying in this way, "Oh Lord! Though I had committed such a horrible crime against you, are you forgiving me? You have taken the punishment that I deserved! "You have taken the punishment that I deserved! This extreme love overwhelms me, and in gratitude I repent from my sins." In this way numerous sinners had got relieved from the sins due to the sacrifice of life of the Prince.


Here the very important fact is that this is not a fiction! This is a real story! That king is none other than the Lord of the Lords, the creator God. We are all his beloved children. Any father wouldn't be happy, he would be sorrowful if his son falls into false path, in the same way the Lord of the Lords is sorrowful for his children who got deviated from the righteous path. The reason being Lord God had created man by keeping his Spirit in us. How he had expressed his love towards is:

* Alas, I had protected you just as how a hen protects its chicks under its wings! Though, you had forgotten.
*Would any father tell his children to eat a stone when they are hungry and asks for food? You those who are in sins also would love your children so much, do you know how much love I have for you?
The relationship between God and us human beings is just like the relationship between the father and his children.

Then, we have learnt that the king is the creator God, haven't we? Then who is his son? Now let us learn about him.

The word of the God is the Son of God. This God’s word created the universe. The God's word alone, as the Son of God, as an ordinary man took his birth in this world for our sake had sacrificed his life. So, the Prince mentioned is none other than the Son of God! In the sense, he is God himself! From here, let us consider the king mentioned in the story as the God himself and the Prince is the Son of God. Now, let us get into this real story.

The Son of God, in the form of a human being, he was tortured cruelly and remorselessly and was in his death bed. His mother who had borne him for nine months in her womb and had brought him up was weeping by seeing him dying. We can't even imagine how a mother would feel when her son is being tormented and killed in her presence, in front of her eyes. Heart would have agitated in turmoil; it felt as much sorrow as a huge spear is pierced into her heart. The Son of God had suffered the torment of death for a few hours and finally he had died. After his death, that poor mother had performed the last rites of the funeral with her own hands. This has put an end to the incarnation of the Son of God. "Isn't it quite common doubt to ask, "What God had been doing while such horror was going on?”  The reason is that, all this has happened according to his manifesto itself. He is not only saying that he has as much of love as he could sacrifice his life, but also did it and proved it.
As a human being, he had fulfilled the divine manifesto, and as triumphant he acquired resurrection and had reached his father in glory. God had given the entire authority to his son; he also told him that his son alone would give judgment. This is a delightful fact to the entire human race because as the Son of God had lived as a human being, he understands very well all the woes and troubles in living as a human being. Since, he is the judge, it is better for us to follow all that he had preached on this earth. Here in one parable he had given in this way.

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' "Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' "They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?' "He will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.' "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

So it is far better for all of us to help fellow human being, anyone who is in need.

We have learnt that this universe is created by the word of God. When he had created this world, there wasn’t sin at all. Hitherto how did the sin enter into this world? Hitherto, what is sin at all?

God did not create human beings as robots. He had given human being the stamina to think for himself and take decisions but he had not given him the wisdom to distinguish between the Good and the Evil. Due to that reason, in the first human beings, there wasn’t sin at all as they did not know what is good and what is evil, and they were as innocent as infants. As there wasn’t any sin, they did not have even death. Henceforth, due to the instigation of a putrefied angel of God, acquired the power of distinguishing the Good and the Evil though the God reluctant to offer, as human had urged, God had sealed the inscriptions in our hearts which enabled us to distinguish the Good and the Evil. Due to these inscriptions, each and every man can distinguish what is good and what is bad if he thinks just a little. It is a quite well known fact that man is a fickle minded creature. If one does a deed with full consciousness that what he is doing is a wrong is sin. It is a true fact that there is no one who had not committed a sin. Due to that alone, man is bestowed with death. All of us are sinners. We all had committed small or big sins in our lives. All of us would die one day. And all of us would be made to stand in front of God for judgment. So before our death itself, we all must cleanse our sins. Because, the Son of God is busy in the task of creating new earth for us. Those who are in sins are deprived of entry into this new world. Then how can we get relieved of our sins? It is possible only through the Son of God alone. The reason is, he had taken the death sentence which we all deserved and also had appealed the Father God to forgive us for his sake. Due to this reason, it is just sufficient if we all acquire repentance, and accept the alms of forgiving that he offers. He would cleanse and wash off all our sins with the blood he had spilt on his death bed. He would emend us to make us eligible for acceptance of his Father, the God. However sinner is a person, he could acquire forgiving.

This is a free call of the Son of God to each and every human being in the world. There isn't any segregation in the name of color, caste, creed, religion, nationality the rich and the poor.
The Son of God is calling the human race in this way. “My dear children who had been shouldering the burden of sins with great endeavor, come to me and I will give you rest”.

So, all those who approach the Son of God listening to his call, would acquire forgiving of sins. The defilers named the sins would be cleansed off and their Spirit would acquire their earlier beauty.
Henceforth, the only thing we too have to do is "Just as God had forgiven us, we too must forgive each other freely without conditions. 

It is said by people that a man would consume even phenol when it is offered free of cost, isn't it? In such cases, we who are getting forgiveness of our sins free of cost must have anxiety in approaching him. This we need to consider seriously. Because, we don't know ourselves when our death would overtake us. We need to get forgiving for our sins before our death. The reason is the Son of God had fulfilled the oblation named the “Salvation to the world” on this earth itself when he was on his death bed, when he was born as a human being. So, we too must acquire this forgiveness of sins on this earth itself. 

If the sins of all are forgiven freely, what would be the difference between the Good and the Bad? Are all equal in the new creation? Isn't there any benefit in leading a good and pious life now? This question would surely torment us. So, let us learn a few more facts.

Is there anywhere anyone who had not committed a single sin at all? There wouldn't be even one who had not committed a single sin, speaking at least a lie; there wouldn't be anyone who had not committed a single sin. In the sense, each and every one requires forgiveness for sins. The Son of God would bestow this forgiving of sins to each and every one, those who would approach him. In the same way, each and every one would have performed a single virtuous deed at least. These virtuous deeds would be transformed into their golden crowns and they would be so glorified that their Spirit would be eligible to carry them even after their death. According to their virtuous deeds they had performed in the new creation God would bestow the gifts and remunerations that they deserve.

All this is fine but if we want to ask for forgiving of sins, where will be this Son of God? To which temple must we go to find him? Which mountain should we mount? Whom should we inquire? How should we find out? 

When the God had created us, he had established an abode for himself in our hearts. Our body alone is the God's temple. Due to our sins, we had distanced our God farther. The Son of God is eagerly waiting for us to open the doors of our hearts! He is the truth. He would surely show the path to those who are searching for the truth. He would recognize us himself. The words he spoke are like this, "You ask! It is bestowed to you. You search and it is found by you. You knock and the door would be opened for you. Each and every one who would ask would acquire, everyone who searches for truth would find, everyone who would knock would be opened the door and allowed entrance". So, all that we have to do is just prepare ourselves to search for the truth with courage. If you all put this small effort to find out truth as the below mentioned without fear, it is sufficient. "Oh Lord God who had created the entire universe, please let me know the truth. I am destined to know the true God. Please show me the path and please walk me to your presence. I offer and sacrifice my heart to you. Please make your abode yourself in me."

The almighty God will show you the way.

Thanks for your valuable time. Please do not hesitate to discuss with me.

Your friend forever,

Ending Words


We do not feel rested when we are traveling, even when we are visiting great places. We feel rested only when we return home. It is true that, the kind of rest you get upon reaching home is not comparable to anything. Similarly, our soul came from God and it will get complete rest only when our soul goes back to him. Because of that reason, even when we have everything in this world we still feel some kind of emptiness and anguish to get something more and never satisfied. Also, we forgot our way to the God Almighty because of our sins and we got trapped by the corrupted angels and became vagabonds.  So voice of God became flesh in this world as "Son of God" and said “I am the way, truth and life, whoever follows me I will lead them to the Father”.

Wish you all the best in your truth finding journey... Your friend forever...
