Christ Lives: An Illustrated Oratorio
Christ Lives: An Illustrated Oratorio interweaves Swami Kriyananda's complete Oratorio with sacred images of the Holy Land. This DVD takes you on a journey through the life of Jesus Christ, leaving you uplifted and transformed.
Christ Lives begins with footage from the 2008 live performance of the Oratorio in Palo Alto, California. Swamiji describes how the music came to him while meditating at sacred spots on pilgrimage in the Holy Land in 1983. While there, he experienced the deep inspiration of Christ as a living presence and wrote each piece from that uplifted state of awareness.
The photographs on this DVD were taken by Swami Kriyananda while on that same pilgrimage in 1983 and include: David’s Tomb, the grotto of St. John, the Church of Domination where the Virgin Mary is believed to have died, the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, the river Jordon in Galilee where Christ was baptized, the Church of Agony in Gethsemane, the place of Christ’s crucifixion in Golgotha, and Mt. Tabor, where Christ’s transfiguration is said to have been.
David Bingham created this DVD especially for Treasures Along the Path. Please play it as you feel inspired. You may wish to view it in its entirety or have it playing in the background during the entire holiday season. It is our hope that this DVD will bless you and bring Christ’s presence more deeply into your life.
