When I was a child, on Christmas Eve, we would go out and when we came back, Santa Claus would have visited and there would be gifts under the Christmas tree. Now, if I have to say what I want for my Christmas day gifts, I want that my disciples and all the devotees develop their taste for chanting the holy name and their extreme laulyam for serving Lord Caitanya, Lord Krsna and entering into Their eternal pastimes. Prabhupada had repeatedly reminded us that we are not the body. We are the eternal soul, part and parcel of Lord Krsna and our nature is to serve Krsna eternally. Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda are the most merciful and They want to give us krsnaprema but we should carefully avoid the aspects of kali like extramarital sex, meat, fish and egg eating, intoxication, and gambling. In this way, we should absorb ourselves in chanting, in hearing, and serving in Krsna Consciousness. Hare Krishna.

Your well wisher always,
Jayapataka Swami
