"Christ Has Resurrected, Oh, Yes, Let's Praise Him" -Swami Vishwananda

And they were offended by him. But Jesus told them, "A prophet is without honor only in his hometown and in his own home."
You see very well that He came [Christ Jesus], but people were against Him. He came to His own people, who did not recognize Him. It is like it is said: “No one is a prophet in his own land.” It is only afterward that one sees. It is the same with a Master. When you have a Teacher with you, you don’t appreciate it. Nobody appreciates it, then after the Master has passed on, people say: “Oh, how wonderful it would have been if we were there.” But know that whatever is written about a Teacher in his time, it is always good afterward.

Of course everyone wants to be around in that time, but when the Teacher is there, nobody wants to be around, and it is always like that. Afterward, 10 or 20 years after people say, “Oh, how wonderful it would have been if we were there. “ So, this is how the mind of man functions. If you have the chance to be with the Master, take it!

He [Jesus] is calling everyone to resurrect with him and letting the old one, who is inside of you, die and letting the new one resurrect with Him. This is the Resurrection of Christ. Oh, yes, let’s praise Him. He resurrected 2,000 years ago, and even if he had not resurrected, He would still be Christ Himself. But to show the resurrection is possible, to show that God-Realization is possible or your own Realization, He has shown it. He has shown the Way. That is why He said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Light.
