Description

Christmas morning is a time for families to venerate and glorify the newborn baby Jesus as an incarnation of Divine Love. Traditionally, Paramahamsa Vishwananda gathers all the children together to help Him perform abhishekam (bathing ritual) and puja (dressing and feeding ritual) for the baby while the Bhakti Marga choir sings beautiful hymns and songs glorifying Jesus Christ. Gurudev then distributes prasad to the children. 

Jesus Christ incarnated to remind us that we are not just a human being; we are not just what we see on the outside. We are also children of God. We are also part of the Creator.

Impressions of Christmas 2018

What to expect

The morning festivities begin at 10:00 and last for several hours. Due to limited space in the Light Hall, families with children are given priority seating. Once the festivities have concluded, we move on to share a meal together. Please register for the Christmas Meal separately here

What to wear

Women are asked to wear saris or ankle-length skirts and men are asked to wear a dhoti and kurta, or dress smartly in nice shirts and trousers. 

Sponsor this event

Most of our festivities are free and open to the public. Sponsoring a puja is wonderful way to say thank you to Gurudev for all the blessings you have received from Him. It is also a generous way to help make the event available to others and to contribute to making it memorable for everyone.

The act of giving from the heart is a true blessing in and of itself. By helping to sponsor the event you reap the benefits from all the prayers done during the festivities. Even if you are unable to attend the event, you may still take part by becoming a sponsor.
