Nicolas Notavitch's account of how he translated (from Tibetan) a manuscript of 'The Life of Issa' while staying in the Buddhist Hemis monastery at Ladakh sparked great - and enduring - controversy. The mysterious manuscript tells how the teenage Issa, or Jesus, joined a caravan of merchants travelling to India and remained there for six years, studying Buddhism. The full text is included. Translated by Alexina Loranger (1894).
