Christmas 2012 Divine present wish list!

Have a Divine Christmas everyone!

Well Christmas is fast approaching us, as such, it is the perfect time to write a devotee Christmas present wish list: 

1. Pravachan box set. What better way to spend Christmas and new years than to be with your family, imbibing the nectar of Radha Krishna devotion and knowledge given by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. There are so many to choose from, Bhagwan Ki Seva Kaise Karen?, Gopi Prem, Kirtan Mein Roop Dhyan etc. [Buy]

2. A visit to JKP Radha Madhav Dham, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's ashram in America, for you and your loved ones. JKP Radha Madhav Dham offers several overnight accommodations to choose from. JKP Radha Madhav Dham has been featured in many top lists, including National Geographic's "The 100 Best Vacations to Enrich Your Life"and Yoga Journal's, "best places to relax, reflect, and renew" list. New Years is the most perfect and magical time to stay at Radha Madhav Dham as you will also have the chance to participate in the 24 hours New Year chanting of the mahamantra. Beginning at Noon on December 31, until Noon on January 1, participants chant to over 50 unique tunes of the mahamantra, "Hare Ram." At the conclusion of the chanting, on the afternoon of New Year's Day, participants are enchanted by a delightfully sweet jhanki (leela darshan) performance by devotee children. [Book your stay at Radha Madhav Dham]

3. Chanting CD's. Devotees love hearing the names, virtues and leelas of Radha Krishna and a chanting CD is a perfect Christmas gift. There are so many to choose from, depending on your liking or mood. Growing up, extra chanting was always a Christmas ritual in our house. A favorite might be Chintaya Chitt Chiram Hari Charanam, Kabahun Sakhi Hamhun Dekhihaun Shyam, Sankirtan Sudha. [Buy a CD]

4. Devotional books. There are also tonnes of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's books to choose from. We often think we know everything, but then as we read again and again we learn surprising new aspects of devotion or of the philosophy that we never knew before. The Christmas holidays are some of the best time to do this, because there's no work and it's too cold to go anywhere! Just picture yourself and your loved ones sitting by a hot open fire, with the crackling of roasting chestnuts and the shimmering of the Christmas tree lights brightening up the room. You could be watching those yearly Christmas movies like Home Alone (I, II and III) or you could be seated around with your family sharing excerpts from devotional books. Think about it! And [buy here]!

5. Donate to the poor on behalf of a friend or loved one. Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj has many charitable projects in India to provide education and health care to the underprivileged. Contributing to these projects is an efficient means of helping others. You can be sure that your money will end up in the right place and be used for the right thing and you can be sure to bring a smile to that special someone's face because nothing says "I love You" more than giving a helping hand to someone less fortunate. [Click here for donation page, choose the "JKP building and relief projects in India" option]

6. Last and definitely not least, sign your family up for JKP's Hindu Family Camp, which will take place from Wednesday, December 26, 2012 to Monday, December 31, 2012. [Sign up here]
