What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

The deeper meaning of Christmas

Sri Swami Vishwananda tells us......

So…For me, with the years you understand the deeper meaning of Christmas, you know? It’s not just a festival that you go to Churches just to… they all like to go to the Churches for midnight mass or I have been to Bhajans singing. It’s not about that, you know? It’s true that Christ has been born probably some 2000 years plus. It’s about celebrating. Because He brought something new to the world, which is forgiveness, Love. Many Avatars have come.

They all have brought Love, but the Love was not really forgiving. Many Saints have come, prophets have come, but the Love was just “Yes, I love you”, but there was always a condition to the Love. And also if you did something wrong to them, you would get back what is wrong. But what He brought is this forgiveness.

That’s why in the prayer they keep reminding of the forgiveness of forgiving what you have done wrong, forgiveness of yourself actually.

First forgive yourself. It’s not about God forgiving you, but it´s about forgiving yourself first . And focus on the Love that you carry inside of you.

And Christ is born- Yes.

It’s nice outside to celebrate Him, but He is born inside each one of us.

And this rebirth is not only because of Christmas time.

He is born continuously in each cell of your body.

To all of you " Merry Christmas"!!
