India: Jesus and his missing years

varnam on the speculation surrounding Jesus's missing years. “The Jesus in India theory comes from author Holger Kersten who wrote a book about the same. Though without proof the idea comes from the observation that the teachings of Jesus are similar to Buddha who lived in India, 500 years before Jesus. Since there was a trade route to India from the Roman empire which passed through Palestine, it would have been possible for Jesus to travel to India, learn Buddhism and go back to Palestine.”
