A beloved avatar (personal manifestation of God) who embodied the all-embracing Christ Consciousness (Kutastha Chaitanya), Jesus along with Mahavatar Babaji is immortally linked with the spread of Kriya Yoga from India to the West. Through the sublime teachings and techniques disseminated worldwide by Paramahansa Yogananda at the behest of Jesus and Babaji, each of us has been given the means by which we can prepare the cradle of our own hearts for the birth of the Christ Child of infinity. By communion with that sacred consciousness in meditation, we discover the true “Second Coming of Christ” — right within ourselves. My heartfelt prayer is that the heavenly magnetism and grace radiating from the celestial realms with special power during this holy season will draw your meditating soul deeply into the loving, life-transforming presence of God, which unites all beings in one divine family. That is the real, spiritual celebration of Christmas, which Paramahansaji’s followers all over the world so much look forward to at this time of year.
May you have a most blessed Christmas and spiritually fulfilling New Year!
Swami Chidananda Giri
