Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 1994



The Year of Supreme Choice:

The aspiring heart’s confident forward march

The doubting mind’s imminent backward run.


Swim in the ocean of oneness-delight
Sink in the sea of separation-night.


From the higher worlds, the Divine Beings want to illumine, protect and perfect the earth planet.

From the lower worlds, the Ignorance-Titans want to dominate the earth planet. Let us make our wise choice Here and Now.

In us is Divinity’s Peace-Lover. In us is humanity’s War-Monger. The one we do not want to feed and cherish we must bring to the fore immediately and cast aside ruthlessly.

Because of our conscious and continuous blunders, we have compelled our poor Lord God to sleeplessly cry.

Stop we must! From this very moment we must please God in His own Way, for there can be no other way if Happiness is our choice, Peace is our choice, Infinity-Immortality’s Fulfilment is our choice.

— Sri Chinmoy
