I love the lights and the decorations; I love the music, the carols, the songs, the heartfelt and the silly.
I love baking Christmas cookies for my neighbors. Making pumpkin spiced everything, and decorating the Christmas tree with my four children.
The other thing that I love about this season are the Christmas stories/movies with their inspirational messages of selfless giving and sharing of the spirit of Christmas. Many bring to mind if even for a moment the importance of selfless service and kindness to others so often forgotten, or perhaps just overlooked, in the bustle that can overcome our lives.
But the very best thing I love about Christmas, is that time spent with friends and family. Each year I look forward to our annual Christmas kirtan celebration, a special time that calls together community in the joyful holiday season, to honor and remember the real meaning of Christmas. Christmas is that special time for opening up our hearts to honor and celebrate the reason for the season. It’s an opportunity to gain insight from the life and teachings of Lord Jesus Christ!
Every year on Kauai we open up our home and invite everyone to our table to share a beautiful kirtan and delicious vegetarian/vegan Christmas feast . It’s a uplifting event that gathers people together from all walks of life; including well to do doctors, the homeless and visitors to the island and everything in-between!
With the magic of Christmas kirtan we tap into the happiness, joy, and security deep within our hearts and rise above our differences, uniting as brothers and sisters joining together as one family. This year we are hosting two special events a Christmas Eve candlelight vigil kirtan and a Christmas day kirtan and feast-We warmly invite you and your family and friends to join us this Christmas for our annual kirtan celebrations and we look forward to meeting you in person!
Love Radha & Gopal & family & friends of the Bhakti Yoga Shack!
