Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 1984


The seeker’s confidence-heart
And the seeker’s surrender-life
Shall play together
The complete perfection-game
In God’s Vision-Home.

— Sri Chinmoy


Sri Chinmoy offered a New Year’s meditation for the public on December 10, 1983, at Washington Irving High School in Manhattan. At the end of the programme, Sri Chinmoy delivered his message for the New Year.
