“My Christmas wish for you this year is twofold: that the consciousness of Christ be manifest in you through deep meditation, and that your exemplary actions will persuade others to abandon their evil or worldly ways and become spiritual. Both meditation and action are necessary or the spiritual path, for they contribute toward individual and mass evolution.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

The first part of this video offering comes in the form of a prayer from spiritual teacher Paramahansa Yogananda who was an Indian yogi and guru that introduced millions in the West to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga. In 1931 he established the custom of holding an all-day meditation service during Christmas. The aim was to foster the communion with the Christ Consciousness that he said constitutes the true celebration of Christmas. Use this prayer to invoke Solar-Christ Consciousness for this season of goodwill on earth.

The second part is a version of the Carol ‘O Come O Come Emmanuel’ that originates back to the 12th century and possibly even earlier. You can use this carol at this auspicious time of year to tune into the light, joy and blessings of Solar-Christ Consciousness within.

“O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Day-Spring
Come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel
O come, O King of nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind.
Bid all our sad divisions cease
and be yourself our King of Peace. Refrain
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, o Israel.”
