Sri Swami Vishwananda
Every year, in all the world, we celebrate Christmas together, the birth of Jesus Christ, the one who came to redeem mankind, the Great Master who is an example of humanness, compassion and devotion. Swami says that in Mauritius [Swami’s birth home place] that Christmas is not only a feast for Christians, but is celebrated by members of all religions: “The birth of Christ is something very mystical, because Christ renews his birth every year whenever we celebrate it in the heart of man."
When we try to connect with God, Christ and the great Masters during Christmas time, we create a strong foundation for the New Year. Christmas creates in our hearts a lasting landmark of love, so that we recognize that we are all children of the One God.
For this year’s Christmas we have put together a package, which is meant to help us to find that inner Christmas in our hearts. The package contains a rose quartz heart and a bee’s wax candle, which have been blessed by Swami and are a reminder of Jesus’ light and love. With the light of the candle, blessed by Swami, we can light all candles of the coming year. The incense included symbolizes the gifts of frankincense and myrrh of the three Holy Kings. And on the new Christmas DVD included, Swami shares his thoughts on Christmas and its meaning.
The proceeds of 29 Euros, (plus postage) per packet, will go entirely into the renovation project of the Bhakti Marga Center “Shree Peetha Nilays” in Springen. The Christmas package can be ordered on line at www.bhaktishop.de and also via email:firstname.lastname@example.org)
We wish you a very Merry Christmas, much light and blessings.
