Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 1975


The year 1975 will be the year
Of the seeker’s outer success
And inner progress.
With his outer success,
He will love and serve the Supreme Pilot.
With his inner progress,
He will manifest and fulfil the Supreme Pilot.

— Sri Chinmoy



New Year’s Meditation:
Sri Chinmoy offered a public meditation to welcome in the New Year. The event was held on Friday, December 27, 1974, at 7:30 p.m. at Hunter College Auditorium, 69th Street and Park Ave. in New York City.

After the meditation, Sri Chinmoy described the inner possibilities and potentialities of 1975.

Each New Year, the Master explained afterwards, represents the dawn of a new consciousness on earth. “God once again inspires each human being, each creature, with new hope, new light, new peace and new bliss.” Each New Year, he continued, “is like a rung on the ladder of consciousness that we have to climb up.” 1

Sri Chinmoy and his students celebrated New Year’s Eve with a seven-hour recital of 100 of his Bengali songs. Read more...
