Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 1982


The New Year will be the man-awakening
And the life-illumining God-Hour.
The eyeless will see the Vision-Eye
Of the Absolute Supreme,
And the heartless will feel the Compassion-Heart
Of the Absolute Supreme.

— Sri Chinmoy



Sri Chinmoy held his annual New Year’s Meditation on December 15, 1981, at New York’s High School of Art and Design. During the evening, Sri Chinmoy read out his New Year’s Message and a special song he had composed the previous day from the words of the message was performed by his students.
