Last night, July 18, a beautiful event took place in Palo Alto, California. As part of Ananda’s 40th Anniversary celebrations the Oratorio “Christ Lives” was performed. This was a special performance in that Swami Kriyananda sang many of his divinely inspired songs. The collection of songs depicts the mystic life and teachings of Christ.
Swamiji introduced the Oratorio by saying that he had received this music after visiting and meditating in the Holy Land. Whenever I hear this music I find myself wondering again – who is this man who can channel songs of such depth and devotion?
I feel that I have an opportunity to commune with Christ when I listen to this music.
The music was even more powerful last night. The combination of a huge and talented choir, exceptional soloists and Swamiji’s presence resulted in an evening of music that was extremely uplifting and joyful.
This will be a weekend filled with special events and happy reunions with Ananda friends from around the world. I am posting some photos for you – with more to come soon. Click here to see more photos!
Bless you all from Palo Alto!
