The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ - The Life of Saint Issa - Translation by Nicolai Notovitch, 1896
The book is the in two distinct parts. Part I details the story of Notovitch's journey to Hemis and the circumstances which led to his seeing the St Issa scroll. Part II is a full translation of the scrolls in to English.

The St Issa scroll is mentioned repeatedly by 'Jesus in India' scholars and was ground breaking in starting to piece together the life of Jesus.

Recent attempts to obtain the scroll and gain more information about it have failed.
During the latter part of the 1870s, Notovitch decided to embark on an ?extended journey through the Orient.?

In 1887 Notovitch visited the famous Golden Temple at Amritsar India, eventually moving on to Ladak. He went to Kargil where he began a horseback trek on his way to Leh, the capital of Ladak. At a place called Mulbek near the Wakha River, he decided to visit two monasteries, one of which was Buddhist, located above a hill. There he met a Lama, and the two conversed about religion. At one point in the conversation, the monk stated:

"We also respect the one whom you recognize as Son of the one God. The spirit of Buddha was indeed incarnate in the sacred person of Issa [Jesus], who without aid of fire or sword, spread knowledge of our great and true religion throughout the world. Issa is a great prophet, one of the first after twenty-two Buddhas. His name and acts are recorded in our writings."

Notovitch then left the area, but while riding his horse near Hemis Monastery, Notovitch suffered a terrible fall from his horse and broke his right leg, and he was forced to remain under the care of the Buddhist monks at Hemis until his leg healed. During this time he had the scrolls read to him and his translators translated it for him. Notovitch took notes, and this formed the core content for his book. Read extracts here.

The Name Issa [top]

Kersten states that the name ?Isa?, or ?Issa?, derives from the Syrian, Yeshu (Jesus), ?being altered to conform to Musa (=Moses).? It is very interesting that Jesus is referred to as ?Issa? in Buddhist documents, as ?Isa? in the scripture of Islam, the Quran, and as ?Isa? in the Hindu scripture, the Bhavishya Mahapurana.

That the religious documents of these three religions mention Jesus as ?Isa? suggests that this was actually a name by which he was known in the East. Buddhism and Hinduism predate Islam.

"When I visited the Lamasery [Monastery] at Hemis, and together with the Lama Ishe Tundup and Mr. Stobden interviewed the 'Manager' (The young head Lama being in Tibet studying), the other Lamas who also were present belonging to the Monastery immediately said that their older monks did remember an Englishmen being injured and brought to their Monastery and that some MSS [manuscripts] were shown to him."
