The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other

A History of Mighty Companions

Gary R. Renard



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.
