Re: Influence of Christianity on Dada Lekhraj & BKism

Post03 Jul 2017

Question:

The fundamental belief of a Christian as defined by christians, that which distinguishes an actual ”Christian" from another who sees Jesus as a wise teacher, or who lives by the ethical/moral teachings but doesn’t fit the definition and cannot be called a Christian because they lack this fundamental belief, is that a "true Christian" believes Jesus died then was resurrected (came back to life) then ascended to heaven (which literally meant ‘sky' in those days) to sit at the right hand of God (the Father).

My question is - is there any evidence to show that the whole concept of Avyakt Brahma was around before Lekhraj encountered Christianity - or before the many second-wave BKs (post 1950), who'd been educated in Western Christian schools in India, came along?

My understanding is that well into the early 1960s, BKs believed that destruction would occur before BB and Mama died. They explained that those others who'd died before destruction were being reincarnated as ”Advance Party”. There was no notion of any period or role of ”Angelic Brahma” until it happened, or maybe just before. When did this idea first appear? And I don't mean the Trimurti (Brahma Vishnu Shankar) - but that BB would continue as BB after death, in a disembodied form, instead of taking rebirth as baby Krisna?

Is the whole play of Avyakt Brahma part of the influence of Christianity?
