Region 1 - Regional Christmas Celebration

On Saturday 22nd December 2012 Region one congregated at Rivers Dale Primary School to celebrate the annual Christmas Celebration hosted by Sathya Sai Centre of Wimbledon.

The programme commenced with Multi-faith prayers and group devotional singing by the SSE children. Devotees were very much inspired by interactive talks from brother Jonathan from Wimbledon, Sister Sandra from Bromley and a Sathya Sai discourse based on Christmas by an SSE student from Tooting including a poem recited by an SSE student of Brixton. Brother Karthik, former student of Sri Sathya Sai institute Prashanthi Nilayam and Region 3 Spiritual co-ordinator gave a talk about his divine experiences with Bhagawan Himself. It reminded us the significance and relevance of Christ's teachings.

Christmas carols were sung by SSE children from Wimbledon Sai Centre.

Thereafter, we were visibly enthralled with the nativity play by the SSE children of Merton Sai Centre. Mary, baby Jesus and Joseph were accompanied by a magnificent star, the three wise men and the three kings along with dancing donkeys and sheep which was enjoyed by all.

The programme concluded with a short bhajan, mangala aarati and a visit by a small red- suited, all white bearded, one and only Father Christmas who had brought goodies in a large red bag for all the children. Maha prasatham was served. Everyone left with a big smile on their faces, full of Christmas spirits!
