  Christmas-Its Spiritual Significance ( Dec 25, 2005)

"Beloved seekers, usher in now the real and spiritual Christmas within your being, become desireless. Conquer egoism. Become embodiments of true humility. Develop meekness and lowliness of spirit by humble surrender unto the Lord. Be courageous to overcome all obstacles. Joyously renounce mammon. Welcome the descent of the Light of Grace within. Rejoice in the advent of the Divine. Thus celebrate the Christmas that ultimately leads you on the glorious climax of Transfiguration, Resurrection and Ascension. Be crowned with Divine glory. Attain immortality, perfect freedom and be for ever steeped in infinite bliss. Through Christmas realise the Christ-consciousness and the radiant light of Atmic (divine) Wisdom. Amen."- Swami Sivananda

Christ 's Divine Life

"Lord Jesus the Christ IS; here and now! Christ is Eternal. He has proclaimed this truth to the world not so much by words but by His glorious Resurrection. Where then is He to be sought and found? He abides where Virtue is and goodness. He is enshrined in the Divine Life of Love, Purity, Truth, Holiness, Prayer, Ceaseless Service and utter selflessness. In the heart where shine the light of Faith, Devotion, Humility, calm resignation to the Divine Will, Compassion and a genuine thirst for Righteousness, therein is Christ present, vibrant, vitally alive and radiantly manifest. O beloved Brethren! be ye also like Jesus and you shall find Christ within yourself now."- Swami Chidananda

Christ Consciousness

“A superman is a temple enshrining the superhuman Spirit. When God thinks through man, we call him a superman. Such was Christ,
 Buddha and Krishna.” “We have to contemplate daily the mystery of creation, the majesty of God, the greatness of spiritual life, the
 stupendousness of Yoga and the glorious consummation that is ahead of us which is supreme Liberation, Christ-Consciousness or
 God-realization.”   Swami Krishnanada

God Is Here and Now

"What is Merry Christmas? Is it only Santa Claus, Christmas trees, songs, jingle bells, singing and dancing, fancy dresses and the external aroma of society by the youths? No. Unfortunately Jesus is lost in the crowd. It is high time we find Him through our purity, character, sincerity, truth, simplicity and service to the known and the unknown and through sincere prayers unto Him. Then realization of the absolute will not be far from us because God is here and now."
