Sadhu Chellappa: Finding Jesus Christ from Vedas

sadhu chellappa testimony 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. (The videos are set into playlist, so you can continually watch all parts without any more clicks.)

How can I get a copy of “Is Christianity Necessary?” I read it years ago and enjoyed it. HOWEVER, you need an editor fluent in English to help you with your next edition. Too many spelling, puncuation and grammatical errors which get in the way of the excellent message. Namaste.

“The lower caste people were inhumanely treated by the Brahmins and the upper class people” – still your father managed to get good ducation!!
“One day the priest saw and heard him reciting the same shlokas and was very impressed” – was this priest not Brahmin who treats you badly??
“the British did not discriminate between the high and the low caste ” – but they throw your father out of job when he demanded for proper salary!!
Prajapathi – is someone who is supposed to do Srishti karma – like Dhaksha Prajapathi,- not to lead peopel and remove sin from people, C’mmon Vedas are not written by any foolish church man . If Jesus is prajapathi, where is his wife and kids?

Cooked up story which is full of contradictions…. Dont you have shame to fool people like this!!!!!!!

I always wanted to find someone who could let me know that the upnishad and ancient writings of veda which talks about the ” silent sufferer” of Isaiah 53 . Yes God has placed light among the heathens but the advesory of the soul has twisted nso badly that hman begaznto worship rather the lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world.

After all Swami Vivekanda is a creation of the Almighty Creator. Thanks for the comment, for “blessed are the poor(lowly), for they will inherit the kingdom”- Matthew 5:5
The above sermon by Christ on the mount touched the heart of the father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi, which lead him to use non violence to free our nation.

why my email dt 7.10.2011 is not yet published. Why is it still in moderation? shakthi

posted by shakthi on 09.28.11 at 11:20 am

Dear Akshatha.I’m really surprised to see your remarks. I did not understand what made you so much angry watching this program.Do you mean to say the lower castes are not illtreated by the upper castes? The Brahmin Priest called him and gave him double portion of prasadham for taking his help.He never said that all Brahmins are bad.The British never cared for low caste or High caste.Yes and I dont find anything wrong in his statement.That Britisher would have done the same thing even if a high caste person worked under him and demanded a raise in his salary.He never claimed that some christian man wrote the vedas.He only translated and explained what the sanskrit vedas are, reciting them in sanskrit fluently.If you think the prajapati he talked about is wrong and you have better evidence from the vedas please let people know.I feel it woud be the right approach.everybody would be enlightened and your efforts would be appreciated. thank You.

Thanks Sadu Chellappa I have learned so much about our God from this message. I am very happy to see it from internet because I was searching for some facts about Jesus Christ in Vedas. I am truly thankful to our lord JESUS CHRIST for you. I wish you good luck in your spiritual career and GOD BLESS YOU.

Thanks to mr Sadhu cellappa for giving this wonderful message, bcus for so many years we our forefathers prayed god with this mantras without knowing meaning, and we also followed the same so mr cellappas testimony has shaked me and made me to know about lord Jesus who is an living and comeing god. I will be one among u to meet him when Jesus comes in sky with glory

GOD,whether we call him as a power,shakthi etc,created heaven and earth i,e the entire universe(includes all of us) we term as GOD.we all are bound to praise,worship and adore him as our creator,as our heavenly father.unfortunately in the passage of time,many gods and goddesses were created by creatures(us).Instead worshipping the creator,many are worshipping the nature or the creatures as did by our fore fathers.It is good to worship the creator rather than to argue who is god among the greatest personalities lived on the earth. “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART,AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL,WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH,AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND,AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOURSELF.

Dear friends,

Jesus is a true living God. My mother was a hindu.
She wanted to commit suicide, with two small babies.

She heard a voice from God, while doing so.
“I will never leave you nor forsake you”
I have graven you in the palms of my hands

My mother is still alive. We christians are not creating any stories to fool people.

The Lord wants everyone to come to him. He desires that none of us will perish.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whoso ever believeth in him, should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16.

Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God, believe also in me.
John 14:1

Dear Sister Akshatha,
When you seek the truth you need to know what the bible says about Prajapathy (Brahmha Putra) Son of God for the following are the words by Jesus Himself.
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:30
May God bless you and reveal the truth to you!

Hi Friends,
Everyone over a period of time learns new things, even Christian scholars were angry when scientists said that the Earth was not the center of the solar system. But we slowly mellowed down over the years to understand the real truth. Similarly, Christ was quoted in all religious texts, including the Vedas. We might refuse them now, reality will strike you in the face, be prepared. Never tell on your doomsday that nobody informed you about Christ. We as Christians are expected to spread the Good news. That is Christ is a living God who will come again and prove wrong of all those who criticise HIM. It depends on you people to decide whether you want to take my advice right now or will like to have real proof on that day. My job is over. I pray to Almighty God to open their blinded eyes right now and to reveal HIMSELF. Let them who can see , read this.AMEN

posted by Human on 10.12.12 at 9:24 am

Why don’t Priests allow Hindus to read their Holy Books? It is because they will finally get to understand the true GOD. Most Hindus do not have a copy of their sacred religious text !!! You can now start recollecting how many of your close Hindu friends have a copy of the Vedas at home. Understanding the Vedas will help one understand the true GOD. A standing testimony is given by one Mr.Titus Thayappan who himself was a sincere Hindu, who can quote all the Vedas by heart. By the By, the Isha Yoga centre is running around without knowing who the real Isha is? Any clarifications regarding HIM (Isa)can be found in the Quran. Isa is Isha is Eesan, a name given for GOD in ancient Tamil Literature. The truth will set you free!

Dear All,

I’m very impressed with our dear Sadhu Chellappa’s word citing that God never created religion. We human beings created religion and division. My humble suggestion is reach out to our good God in your own mother toungue/ the language you are comfortable with, talk to him just like you are talking to your own father & mother he will clarify your doubts. Let us not carry the tags Hindus, Christain, Muslim etc or low caste, high caste or rich/ poor or healthy or sick.

Our good God will help us to understand the truth.

Having said all, we have still not learnt the lesson to be united even after living under foreign rulers for centuries. After fighting tough battle for independence. We still not leart to live in peace. We discrimate ourselves in the name religion, caste, race etc and make out daily life misarable.

God is not so small to live in tiny pockets such as religion, caste etc he created this universe and he existed in different form. So reading bible, veda, Kuran and other sacrate book will give elimentry knowledge about God. But the true and complete knowledge can be extracted only you finding time and talk to God directly in your own language. you may take help of bible, veda, kuran and other books but your relationship with God throw simple pray and contant dialogue and good deed will releave the truth.

I very strongly belive in Jesus christ’s teachings & Mother Mary’s intercession not by reading only the books. but by bulding intimate relationship throw prayer.

God is availabe to reach out him 24/7 let us reach out him for the truth. my dear Sadhu Chellappa the way you reached out to God is inspiring. Thanks for share your story..
