"To observe the birthday of Jesus with gifts and festivities shows some respect and attention to the ideals of his life. But to meditate and prepare your mind for the holy occasion of Christmas, that you may experience within yourself the birth of a new consciousness of universal brotherhood and love for all living creatures, is to really celebrate Christmas. Drive away from your mind all pride and prejudices, that you may fittingly hold the omnipresent Christ Consciousness in your love-expanded bosom."

Dear Members and Friends,

Our all-day Christmas Meditation will be held in the chapel this Saturday, December 20 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

• This meditation is open to all SRF lessons students and kriyabans.

• We encourage all members and guests to please arrive early to get settled and to practice the Energization Exercises on your own.

• SRF is very strict about not allowing anyone to enter the chapel once the meditation begins.

• The Sunday School building will be open and setup for meditation in case you arrive late.

• If you have a cold or cough it is best if you meditate at home and be in tune with the group.

• You may bring your own meditation arm rest as we only have a few available in the chapel.

• Please bring a fruit and a donation in an envelope as a devotional offering. A table with baskets will be arranged in the foyer for your fruit offerings and monetary donations. If you plan to write a check, please ensure that it is made to Self-Realization Fellowship.

• Detailed instructions in English can be downloaded by clicking here and instructions in Spanish are available by clicking this link.

• Click here to read the letter received from Mother Center to help devotees prepare for the All-Day Christmas Meditation.
