Mystic Christianity is a surprising and fresh look at a very familiar subject - the life and teaching of Christ. Written over 100 years ago by Yogi Ramacharaka, the book examines the basic tenets of the Christian narrative through the lens of Eastern spirituality. It takes the form of twelve lessons which work chronologically through the life of Jesus, including a period in which he is rumored to have traveled to India and Persia, and then examines his credo in detail, paying particular attention to the private teachings given to Jesus' closest disciples. Ramacharaka makes a connection between these teachings and other mystical traditions which were prevalent at the time. Yogi Ramacharaka is the pen name of William Walker Atkinson, an early-20th Century American writer who helped to promote Asian philosophy and culture in the West.
