Verily, verily, I say to you,
He that heareth my word,
and believeth on him that sent me,
hath everlasting life,
and shall not come into condemnation;
but hath passed from death to life.

John 5:24

Verily, verily, I say to you,
Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles,
but because ye ate of the loaves,
and were satisfied.
 Labor not for the food which perisheth,
but for that food which endureth to everlasting life,
which the Son of man will give to you:
for him hath God the Father sealed.

John 6:27

"This Is Christmas"

Do you find it hard to sleep til' night,
Resting by the Christmas lights?
Could there be something you forgot?
Beyond the bows, and mistletoes,
The tree with presents wrapped below,
There's more to this than you had ever thought?
Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?

[Chorus:]
What is Christmas?
If there never was a Savior wrapped in a manger.
What is Christmas without Christ?

Remember how the story goes,
God's gift was wrapped in swaddling clothes,
Beneath the star, one great and holy night.
The shepherds heard the angels sing,
The wise man brought an offering,
Peace on Earth began in Bethelethm
Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?



[Chorus:]
What is Christmas?
If there never was a Savior wrapped in a manger.
What is Christmas?
If the angels never sang 'Glory to the new born king?'
What is Christmas without Christ?

There'd be no gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria
In excelsis deo

What is Christmas?
If there never was a Savior wrapped in a manger.
What is Christmas without Christ?
This is Christmas,
It’s all about the Savior wrapped in a manger.
This is Christmas,
Because of Jesus Christ!
This is Christmas,
Because of Christ!
Because of Christ!


Wishing you all a very happy and blessed Christmas!!

Jesus said :"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". Highlighting the "I" gives it the true meaning which Bhagawan also said. But those who wish to run business interpreted it differently :)

Dear Sri Sanjay, I agree with You. I read Bible before,and Jesus was my first love,how to say. But church interpretation of Bible was always strange and wrong. Only after reading Bhagavan's teachings i realised what Jesus tryed to say all the way. Those teachings are completely in line with Bhagavan's. With love and prayers,

Dear Jewell,

Sri Bhagavan said: A Christian can be a true Christian and still pursue  Amta Vicharam. There is no need for conversion.
Because Atma is the same for everyone regardless of religion.

Arunachala Siva.

Subramanian sir - Yes. A great Vedantin from my home town - Prof. G. Balakrishnan Nair says - "vendanta is science. If you know water is composed of Hydrogen and Oxygen - would it matter whether you are Hindu or Muslim? WOuld it matter whether you are living or dying? It is Hydrogen and Oxygen".

Dear sanjaya_ganesh,

I agree. We should live and realize the Self. The religions, castes etc., came much later and will also go off one day. Albert Einstein
who was an agnostic said after discovering the Special Theory of Relativity. 'I now believe in a God but He is very subtle.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Sri Subramanian sir,dear Sri Sanjay, Yes,very true. Me too always believed that is not important. Religion is something which we got by birth,tradition,etc,and they all,anyway,have same reality and God behind them. How we call it,pray to it,is not important,all what matters is,that is same Supreme and Absolute behind and infront all religions. And Supreme,Self,our real nature is beyond all this anyway. With love and prayers,

Dear Jewell,

This is what Tayumanavar says in his first verse in his collected works.


அங்கிங் கெனாதபடி  எங்கும் ப்ரகாசமாய்
      ஆனந்த பூர்த்தியாகி
  அருளடு  நிறைந்ததெது தன்னருள் வெளிக்குளே
      அகிலாண்ட கோடியெல்லாந்
தங்கும் படிக்கிச்சை வைத்துயிர்க் குயிராய்த்
       தழைத்ததெது மனவாக்கினில்
  தட்டாமல் நின்றதெது சமயகோ டிகளெலாந்
       தந்தெய்வம் எந்தெய்வமென்
றெங்குந் தொடர்ந்தெதிர் வழக்கிடவும் நின்றதெது
       எங்கணும் பெருவழக்காய்
  யாதினும் வல்லவொரு சித்தாகி இன்பமாய்
       என்றைக்கு முள்ள தெதுஅது
கங்குல்பக லறநின்ற எல்லையுள தெதுஅது
       கருத்திற் கிசைந்ததுவே
  கண்டன வெலாமோன வுருவெளிய தாகவுங்
       கருதிஅஞ் சலிசெய்குவாம்.     1.

Arunachala Siva.

This is the first verse of Tayumanavar's collected works:

What is it, which is
Uncircumscribed Effulgence,
Perfect Bliss,
Divine-Love Filled --

What is it, which willed
To contain the countless universes
In boundless space
And there flourishes as Life of life, -

What is it, which stood
Transcending thought and word,

What is it, which remained
As the ever contentious object
Of countless faiths claiming,
''This, my God,'' ''This, our God''--

What is it, which exists as
Omnipresent,
Omnipotent
Love-filled
and Eternal -

What is it, which knows
No limits of
Night and day -

That indeed is what is agreeable to thought,
That indeed is what fills all space in silence.

That indeed is what we in meekness worship.


Arunachala Siva.
