Resurrection is the Christian term syncretic with Awakening.


Awakening is a progressive sort of affair. Mathew 22: 23-30, Jesus Christ says that when people are awakened (i.e. resurrected), women will no longer be treated like property. An "astonishing" teaching for its time (Mathew 22: 33).

And whoever, at the time of death, quits his body, remembering Me alone, at once attains My nature. Of this there is no doubt.

Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, that state he will attain without fail.

He who meditates on the Supreme Personality of Godhead, his mind constantly engaged in remembering Me, undeviated from the path, he, O Partha [Arjuna], is sure to reach Me

One who, at the time of death, fixes his life air between the eyebrows and in full devotion engages himself in remembering the Supreme Lord, will certainly attain to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Gita;8.5-6

"The day of resurrectin is the day of the complete manifestation of God's glory when every one shal become perfectly aware of the existence of God. On that day every person shall have a complete and open reward of his [sic] actions." [1]
