520 8  People in India form images of Jesus Christ that link up 
       with their own culture. Hindus have given Jesus a place 
       among the teachers and gods of their own religion, seeing 
       in his life something of the wisdom and mysticism that is 
       so central to Hinduism. Christians in India also make use 
       of the concepts provided by Hinduism when they wish to 
       express the meaning of Christ. Thus, in any case, Jesus 
       is¿for Hindus and Christians¿a guru, a teacher of wisdom 
       who speaks with divine authority. But for many Hindu 
       philosophers and Christian theologians there is much more 
       that can be said about him within the Indian framework. He
       can be described as an avatara, a divine descent, or 
       linked to the Brahman, the all-encompassing Reality. This 
       study looks at both Hindu and Christian views of Christ, 
       starting with that of the Hindu reformer Rammohan Roy at 
       the beginning of the nineteenth century, as well as those 
       of the first Christian theologians of India. The views of 
       Mahatma Gandhi and the monks of the Ramakrishna Mission 
       are discussed, and those of influential Christian schools 
       such as the Ashram movement and dalit theology. Five 
       intermezzos indicate how artists in India portray Jesus 
       Christ.
