Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 2000

 

 

   The Absolute Lord Supreme
Tells the confusion-mind of the world:
   “Take My Sadness-Heart and Madness-Eye
As the last and urgent Warning.
   Come back Home immediately!”

   The Beloved Lord Supreme
Tells the aspiration-heart of the world:
   “In you is
My World-Transformation-Hope-Dream,
   With you is
My Self-Transcendence-Vision-Manifestation-Promise
   And for you is
My Smile-Beauty-Fragrance-Presence.”

   The Year Two Thousand
Is a decision-examination for humanity:
         Either
We bind and blind the old world, and retire
         Or
We embrace the new world of the forward march.
   The Smile of the Beyond
   Is beckoning us
   To come and play hide-and-seek.

— Sri Chinmoy

He Param Pita Nutan Barashe

 

Bengali lyrics

He param pita nutan barashe karibo na kabhu bhul

Ami habo ek tomar hiyar sudha swapaner phul

O my Absolute Father Supreme,

In the New Year I shall make no mistake.

I shall be a flower of Your Heart’s Nectar-Dream.
