Sadhu Chellappa: Finding Jesus Christ from Vedas

Sadhu Chellappa is an avid writer, Christian evengelist from South India who has written 28 books in Tamil and English language. He has mastered the knowledge of the Vedas (Ancient text of Hindu scriptures in Sanskrit language) and the other Hindu scriptures. He teaches about a connecting link between Vedas and Jesus Christ.

His Life story:

Sadhu Chellapa came from a very religious family from Tamilnadu, India. He recalls his grandfather being a conservative religious person but his father being a little lenient. When he was at a very young, 1st World war was going on. The times were very difficult and his family was in search for a better livelihood. It was also the time of British Raj in India. Hindu caste system was very prevalent. The lower caste people were inhumanely treated by the Brahmins and the upper class people. While at the same time, the British did not discriminate between the high and the low caste and they welcomed anyone who would be ready to serve them. So his father who was well educated and respected in the society decided to embrace Christianity for the quality of life for himself and his family. By doing so, he also could please the ruling British empire.

His father was working with a Missionary who was from Britain. Everything went well until his father demanded a salary raise. In response to that, he lost his job. The family was stranded. They had nowhere to go. Even everyday food for the family became a challenge. One day, young Chellappa went to the temple to eat the food which was offered to the idols; he liked the temple and especially food. So every day, he would go to the temple to eat and while eating he would listen carefully to the shlokas recited by the priest of the temple. Soon he memorized many of the shlokas by heart. One day the priest saw and heard him reciting the same shlokas and was very impressed. He asked the young boy to come and help him in the duties of the temple. He readily accepted because that meant more food during the day and no starvation. Slowly people noticed him at the temple reciting shlokas and were very impressed. His fame grew and people also offered him gifts and food.

One day, he realized while reciting the Shlokas about a legend “Prajapati” (the lord of the people) which is mentioned in the Vedas. This historic figure was supposed to take the sins of the world and die for it. He also had to remain sinless and a wild thorny creeper on his head. He was to die for the sins of the world and resurrect. Sadhu Chellapa was really interested in this deity “Prajapathi” who is mentioned in Rig Veda as a “silent sufferer”. So he started searching for him. He asked many questions to other priests and Brahmans in the temples. He was determined to search out his Prajapathi. But he did not find any satisfactory answers. He was only 19 years old at that time and felt very disillusioned. So he thought to himself may be there is no God and everything is purposeless.

During this time, he met another atheist who had a long conversation with him that there is a god, but the world has many names to this god. People say there is a Christian god, a Muslim god, a Jewish god and thousands of Hindu gods, So it is better to believe there is no god. It makes more sense to just ignore God!

Some time went by, and his parents wanted him to get married. One of his Uncles insisted that he would marry a good Christian girl. He did not know why he believed that, but he agreed to it. So he married and had children. Life went on but he was not at peace, he started smoking, drinking and also went under a huge debt. Due to his ill habits of smoking, he suffered from TB. There was no proper cure in those days so he suffered a lot. On top of this he always had guilt in himself that he is neither a good husband to his wife or a good father to his children. Day by day the guilt of family, disillusionment from god and the tensions of debt led him to depression.

One day he was travelling in the train with all the problems and worries of his life and he thought of a way to escape from it. He decided to commit suicide. He went to the door of the gushing train to throw himself down. Right at that moment he heard a mysterious voice saying, “He that conceals his sin will never prosper.” This verse struck him to his core. He felt why he heard something like this? What was the purpose? Was there a message for him? As soon as the train stopped he got down and he saw a huge Christian gathering in an open place. He started walking towards it, thinking that Jesus Christ is a Christian and foreign god of the West. But he felt compelled to go there. In the meeting he heard the pastor speak about sin which he understood very well from his knowledge of Vedas. But then, the pastor said that only Jesus Christ, who is born of the virgin can take away the sins of world, for He alone is sinless and he is the atoning sacrifice on behalf of all the people. Sadhu Chellapa recalled that about “Prajapathi”, written in the Vedas too. He could not believe the exact connection. That night the pastor invited the congregation to come forward and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. He ran in front, prayed and accepted Jesus into his heart. Since that day he started sharing his testimony and preaching the Word of God in all the places.

You can read more about him, his mission, and his audio and video preaching on his website His testimony is published in a leading British magazine “The Edge”. You can also listen to 10 part testimony here on youtube where he talks in detail about the Vedas and its fascinating yet much ignored passages which may point to Jesus Christ.

    Glad to see Christians getting validation about their own religion from ancient Vedic/Hindu texts. Proves the authenticity of the Hindu texts. Never saw Hindus trying to get validation of their religion from the Bible. The Vedas are the source of all wisdom. I am of the opinion Christians read more Vedic texts besides just ad hoc extraction of Jesus Christ like similarities. Personally, Christianity shouldn’t kill animals because if you can’t give life why take it.

    Please read Jesus lived in India by Holger Kersten and see the documentary by the same name on YouTube.There are well made films by the BBC which are logical-
    .Infact there is a close semblance between Buddhism and Christianity when it comes to the teachings,specially pertaining to non violence.The missing years of Jesus that is between the time he was 14-30 years are not known but have been mentioned in Buddhist manuscripts in N India and was translated way back in the 1890’s and until 1939 was debated upon.The historic Jesus is quite different from the Biblical one.
    Please don’t get duped by cults and Born Again Churches as their purpose is just conversion by preaching things that have no historical evidence. Religion is man made and several versions of the Bible have existed.Do not get swayed by emotions and superstitions…go through proper books and documentaries instead of being blinded by priests,Godmen and fake messiahs and then follow what you will!The basic principle of all religions is Truth and Humanity…we should learn to be good humans in order to elevate ourselves.

      My brother… i believe jesus. Before that i was a hindu. Jesus is the God.. there is no God exist . All others possess some powers.. of course . If u serve them they may give u prosperity. But they did not offer salvation for u. There is no one and nithing can come with u after ur death , i mean with ur soul. But Jesus can give salvation redemption and everything.. he can save u from ur sin … and nobody can do this. If u accept him, u can see, talk , and feel his mighty presence because he is the LIVING GOD. Others are mere deity is true.. go and search…u will find the truth

      There is nothing astonishing if Buddhism is similar to Christianity. Because the teachings of true God need to be same. But Buddha did not say I came from God and i go to God and will come back again.Jesus did say so. In fact Buddha was in search of Truth and he got enlightenment But Jesus was Truth itself. He came to die for us sinners, because there was not a single person who could be fit to become a sacrifice for mankind for his sins and he never formed christianity , what He made was children of God.

    Dear Every one

    Indeed it is a great pleasure for me to open the eyes of those who are spiritually blind.
    Perhaps this might help a thousands of people. This is taken from Arati Tumi ho mata cha peeta tumi ho sakha bandu tumu hi sarbanga momoa deva deva. Which means you are both father and mother , you are all relatives and you are every thing. Basically it is talking about the creator so who is the creator? Bible says in the beginning God created heavens and earth . The earth was formless and empty , darkness was over the surface of the deep , and the spirit of the God was hovering over the waters.
    So do we create idol of God with the curved stones or with the help of soil, or even with the help of wood which are the created things of the Lord. These are all God’s creation. Do e make the idol of God out of the God’s creation. . Bible says God created man in his own image from the soil.

    the concept of “sin” and its redemption is normall stated by lot of western (read Christian) writers. The Vedas describe that you are not a sinner but a divine part of the cosmic source.Only the person himself has to bear the fruits of his deeds and no one else.Thats why the Vedas decree that deeds must be pure and selfless and then one shall become free and find happiness within one own self

    • March 24, 2017

      Very interesting to read the last part which I copy here.

      “Thats why the Vedas decree that deeds must be pure and selfless and then one shall become free and find happiness within one own self”

      But ever since mankind was there can you spot a single person who lived or live in this way. I searched but failed.

    Circulating and Spreading false stories and Himalayan Blunders on Great Sanathana Dharma Scriptures

    It appears that you don’t even know your own doctrine. The only sin not forgiven of Christians is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Providing they don’t do that, even the most debauched Christian will enter heaven. Your scriptures do say that, here are just a couple of places:

    Matthew 12:31 ” Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy [against] the Spirit will not be forgiven men. 32 “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the [age] to come.
    Acts 13:39 – “and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.”

    As for the supposed terms in the Vedas – so many Christians make up false quotes from the scriptures that appear to indicate that Hindu scriptures point to Jesus but in fact don’t exist (read the post for an example). Please give me the exact references to where these supposed “quotes” from the vedas come from.
    Please explain why either God punishing himself is not masochistic or God punishing someone innocent is not sadistic – bear in mind he is all powerful and could easily remove sin without these actions.

    Yes I have seen this before – lots of Christian texts in Sanskrit that they vaguely say “come from the vedas”. Its a good point that they decry the vedas. Maybe you can answer this: “do you believe that the vedas are a source of truth?”. If your answers yes then continue to follow vedas, and if no then we why you bothers to talk about Vedas.

    I am afraid that you are either deceiving or have been deceived. Here is Rig Veda Book 10 chapter 7:

    1. O AGNI, shared by all men living bring us good luck for sacrifice from earth and heaven.
    With us be thine intelligence, WonderWorker! Protect us, God, with thy far-reaching blessings.
    2 These hymns brought forth for thee, O Agni, laud thee for bounteous gifts, with cattle and with horses.
    Good Lord, when man from thee hath gained enjoyment, by hymns, O noblyborn, hath he obtained it.
    3 Agni I deem my Kinsman and my Father, count him my Brother and my Friend for ever.
    I honour as the face of lofty Agni in heaven the bright and holy light of Sūrya.
    4 Effectual, Agni, are our prayers for profit. He whom, at home thou, Priest for ever, guardest
    Is rich in food, drawn by red steeds, and holy: by day and night to him shall all be pleasant.
    5 Men with their arms have generated Agni, helpful as some kind friend, adorned with splendours,
    And stablished as Invoker mid the people the ancient Priest the sacrifice’s lover.
    6 Worship, thyself, O God, the Gods in heaven: what, void of knowledge, shall the fool avail thee?
    As thou, O God, hast worshipped Gods by seasons, so, nobly-born! to thine own self pay worship.
    7 Agni, be thou our Guardian and Protector bestow upon us life and vital vigour.
    Accept, O Mighty One, the gifts we offer, and with unceasing care protect our bodies.

    As you can see it is a hymn to Agni with no reference to a prediction of the son of God sacrificing himself for sin. As for the Sama Veda Chapter 18, you don’t say which book but I have read that chapter in all the books and again nothing that you claim.
    Perhaps you could tell me where in the Rig Veda it talks about a crown of reeds. I have read false claims on Christian sites that book 10 chapter 90 talks about a crown of thorns, but this chapter is clearly about creation and mentions no such thing.
    Something that Hindus should bear in mind is that whereas Hindu holy men are bound to satya (truth), many Christian leaders believe that lies and deception are acceptable if they lead to a conversion. Such made up references and scripts are common on Christian sites.
    PS: Historians think that there is little evidence that St Thomas ever went to India, it is more than likely legend.

    think for a minute,if your Christ is mentioned in the Vedas (which is a joke), it merely confirms the supremacy of the Vedas doesn’t justify your pre school, philosophy….. so read the Vedas with a teacher, if you can….and if you are really honest with yourself, you will accept the fact that the Vedas are by far the supreme scriptures and they belong to all mankind….educate yourself friend….and Realise your Self….(the ultimate in Sanathana Dharma)…..

    Dear friend,
    What is that you are trying to tell us. Jesus Christ is the only God sent person to this earth and He is going to reappear as per the will of God , the Father. Let us not divide the people on any sect or colour and keep worshiping as was commanded by the God and as in the teachings of Jesus which we have in The Bible. May God Bless You.

    Prajapathi means creator.Dhaksha prajapathi was called so because he was father of dakshas.Not of all people.I have heard sadhu chellppa’s testimony in a church.He only researched and found relation between meaning of vedic chants and how Jesus life perfectly fitted in that context.Example purusha suktha says Only the creator himself can be the only atonement for all the sins of all of the world.Also He is whole and when whole is removed from him,then also whole remains.Jesus was sinless and still died by giving last drop of blood and buried..But rose again on 3rd day to live ever after.This is an example.Thanks.If you dont believe,please dont do so.

    I don’t understand why christians are not so interested in following the teaching of Jesus, instead they simply look on to trap people into their religion. Jesus is just a human being born to a biological father and mother, who took the knowledge from the vast Sanathana Dharma culture during his invisible periods, those periods during which the Bible does not specify anything. The merge teaching of Bibile is a mere replication of some Hindu (Snathana Dharma) books including Bhagvat Gita, and it only covers the Kinder Garten Level of Bhrahma Vidhya. There is nothing new Christ preaches than what is mentioned in Hindu Scriptures.
    Do not trust all this miracles happening, because what you see and hear is not the right. Turn to yourself, there is Science behind our ancient Bharatha Culture. It is tampered a lot, from Western world. In fact all christian should come in this culture and Muslims too. The world will be much peaceful to live. We all should be educated what is importance of this culture, it is a way of life.
    Come back my friend, we are standing to accept you all, as we have not accepted all your nonsence, we will accept your senseful Decision.. Come back to the real Knowledge. OM TAT SAT
