Claims of Attainment by Jesus, Yuthok and Naropa

 

Claims of Attainment by

Jesus, Yuthok and Naropa


Jesus: "No one comes to the kingdom of heaven except through me".


Yuthok: "There’s greater merit in praying to me for one year than in praying to other gurus for a whole lifetime; there’s more merit in praying to me for a month than in praying to others for a whole year. Rather than praying to others for a whole month, by praying to me for just a day, one minute, or a mere instant, blessings will come quickly. If this isn’t true, for having deceived sentient beings, may all the Buddhas and their spiritual offspring of the ten directions smash my skull into pieces like shattered plaster.”*


Naropa: I am the Source of every Mahasiddha, I am their names and their poems, I am their Songs of Realization, And the Realization itself, I Am the ‘All Creating King’ And ‘Mother of All Buddhas’… That Pristine Purity From which all things Immaculately Come, And yet ultimately remains Completely Indescribable.”**
