This is the third video with two songs from Swami Kriyananda’s Oratorio Christ Lives telling the story of Jesus’ birth;
CHRIST HAS COME
Swami Kriyananda wrote this song inspired by his visit to the Church of the Nativity, in Bethlehem in 1985.
“The Church of the Nativity is the oldest still-active church in Christendom. Its traditions date back to earliest Christian times, making it quite possibly the true site of Jesus’ birth, as early Christians claimed. I myself felt great blessings here — a consciousness very sweet, pure, and childlike.”
“And all went to be taxed every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:2-7)

Free Gifts to Feel the Joy of Christmas and to Share It with Others
All too often, when thinking of Christmas, the feelings of stress and worry seem more prevalent than joy and peace. We all long to feel the joy of Christmas, but are challenged by the weeks of busyness leading up to it.
While it’s generally understood that music can have a powerful effect on mood and energy, it’s less common to use that knowledge to our advantage. Joyful and uplifting music can bring a sense of lightheartedness to even the most trying circumstances.
Our sincere hope is that these songs will help you feel the joy of Christmas now, as well as throughout the entire holiday season.
