One of Notovitch skeptics was Swami Abhedananda. Abhedananda journeyed into the arctic region of the Himalayas, determined to find a copy of the Himis manuscript or to expose the fraud. His book of travels, entitled Kashmir O Tibetti, tells of a visit to the Himis gonpa and includes a Bengali translation of two hundred twenty-four verses essentially the same as the Notovitch text. This convinced Abhedananda of the authenticity of the Issa legend. In 1925, Nicholas Roerich arrived at Himis. He apparently saw the same documents as Notovitch and Abhedananda. And he recorded in his own travel diary the same legend of St. Issa. Speaking of Issa, Roerich quotes legends that have the estimated antiquity of many centuries. So we have three, independent verification of Jesus's travels in Tibet and Kashmir. This makes the St. Issa legend in my mind as plausible as anything written in the Bible.

Notovitch was a Russian doctor who journeyed extensively throughout Afghanistan, India, and Tibet. During one of his journeys he was visiting Leh, the capital of Ladak, near where the Buddhist convent Himis stands. Due to an accident that resulted in his leg being broken he stayed awhile at the Himis convent. Here he saw a scroll that described a man from the west whose description was uncanny and resembled Jesus of Nazareth.Language Notes:
