Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 1981


In 1981
The Supreme Lord will utilise
The soul-beauty,
The heart-purity
And the life-sincerity
Of His seeker-children
For the manifestation
Of His perfect Perfection.

— Sri Chinmoy


Sri Chinmoy during the New Year’s Meditation


Sri Chinmoy held his annual New Year’s Meditation on December 16, 1980, in New York. The evening included a musical rendition of Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message — performed by a choir of his students — first in English and, then, simultaneously in Spanish, French and German in a round format. (See Sri Chinmoy’s original score below.)
