AVATAR: Passion Drama about the Unknown Years in the Life of Yeshua of Nazareth is a passion drama which explores the unknown years in the life of Jesus and delves into the fundamentals of Christian thought. It could have happened that Jesus, after intense study of his Jewish roots, traveled extensively and came into contact with the ancient religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. His teachings and philosophical postulates may be a synthesis of these religions, combining a belief in reincarnation and the perpetual state of Nirvana through meditation and prayer.
