Experience the Bliss of Inner Communion with the Omnipresent Christ Consciousness!
This tradition was begun by Paramhansa Yogananda, and has become the heart of Ananda’s Christmas celebration: a day dedicated to communion with Christ Consciousness.
Don’t be intimidated by the length. Even for beginners, it’s not difficult. Group energy plus chanting, music, and inspirational talks by Paramhansa Yogananda carry you along.
We begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.
Please arrive on time and in place for meditation. Energization exercises will be practiced before at 9:30am.
Chairs are provided or bring your own meditation gear for floor sitting including a shawl or sweater, Malas, aum boards, and earplugs if you use them. You may want to bring your own water and a snack as well.
If you can’t participate all day, there will be a break from 2:00 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. to depart or join in quietly.
“Christ is only suggested in social Christmas festivities, but He is seen and felt as an everlasting, ever-joyous fact in the cradle of divine ecstasy. Make the unknown Christ known within yourself by seeing Him born a second time as the ever-new, ever increasing joy of your daily deep meditation.”
– Paramhansa Yogananda
“I and my Father are One.”
– Jesus Christ
“When Jesus said in the Bible, ‘I and my Father are One,’ He was declaring that He had united His soul with the Infinite Spirit. His words spoken in truth, were meant as a challenge and an inspiration to us all to ‘go and do likewise’. He was saying He had accomplished what He had come on earth to help all of us to accomplish: to unite our souls with the endless source of Divine Love.”
– Swami Kriyananda
