A Spiritual Christmas at Ananda
Christmas Eve is one of the most special and beautiful moments of the season.
We begin the evening with a festive banquet, and then move to the temple for our annual living nativity scene. With beautiful Christmas music, inspiring readings, and a play by the Ananda families, we will celebrate the descent of the Christ Consciousness into the earth. The evening concludes with the ever-inspiring Festival of Light and a chance for us all to offer a candle at the altar symbolizing our devotion.
Christmas day begins with a joyful kirtan (group chanting) and meditation, followed by a festive breakfast. Later in the morning, the Ananda choir will give a Christmas concert of music by Swami Kriyananda and traditional Christma
s music from many countries. A sumptuous banquet follows. The evening will be dedicated to healing prayers for the world.
