Christmas was celebrated with joy and enthusiasm on top of the newly raised Kubera Hill along with our overseas devotees from Lithuania and Russia. What was special about Christmas this year was that this hill was built by the efforts of the Lithuanian devotees who put their hearts and souls into the project; enthusiastically going about the job with seeming ease helped by their bhajan singing and more importantly the presence and participation of Swamiji in the activity; the youngest member was a 12 year old working alongside a 73 year old grand mother!

Christmas was celebrated on the eve of Christmas with a gaily decorated christmas tree atop the little hill; there was cake cutting, distribution of gifts, singing of carols in Russian and Lithuanian languages and a discourse by Swamiji.
