Jesus Christ incarnated to remind us that we are not just a human being; we are not just what we see on the outside. We are also children of God. We are also part of the Creator.

Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda

Celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ with Paramahamsa Vishwananda and the Bhakti Marga family!

Each year at Shree Peetha Nilaya, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ to glorify the divine incarnation that He was. As a spiritual master, Jesus Christ taught that God is love and that God is attained through love. On Christmas, we gather together to celebrate the incarnation of Love, and the awakening of Love within ourselves and the world. 

Program Details:

  • 17:00: Singing the Akathist to Jesus, reading from the Psalms, Old Testament and Epistles as parts of the Royal Hours.
  • 19:00: Christmas eve Meal: If you want to be part, you have to be registered (see above). Costs for this meal: 15,- €
  • 22:00: Liturgy of St. Basil, which contains the intercession, Canon of Nativity, benediction of the loaves and the procession with baby Jesus. The gospel will be read in different languages. We expect that the evening ceremony will finish just after midnight.

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
