The Gospel of Thomas is an amazing scripture of heavenly inspired wisdom. It was discovered in 1945 near the village of Nag Hammadi in Egypt and is now commonly known as the 5th Gospel. It is considered to be the most important non-canonical scripture ever found. Consisting of 114 beautiful sayings the Gospel of Thomas
perfectly enshrines the sacred mystical teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus voice is a fervent call for us to wake up and look beyond the veil of illusion continuously
created by the egotistical mind.
If there is any core message of the 5th Gospel that ought to be emphasized, it is Jesus consistent teaching that enlightenment
and the experience of awakening are, at any given moment, available to each and every one of us. Recognizing who we already are and always have been is all that needs to be achieved. In Verse 108, Jesus says:
Whoever drinks from my mouth
Will become like me;
I myself will become that person,
And the hidden things
Will be revealed to him.
Gospel thus focuses on a universal experience of Cosmic Consciousness, which, in Eastern cultures, is called Samadhi or Satori. Therefore, Jesus sayings
are in perfect accord with what has been taught by the mystics, sages, and Masters for thousands of years.
