On the auspicious occasion of the solar New Year celebrated as Tamil New Year, Vaisakhi, Bihu, Bengali, and Himachal New Year in India, what should we resolve? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.
“Embodiments of Love! New Year does not bring new principles of truth and righteousness. They are changeless and eternal. When they are practised, the whole world will be taken care of. Hence, we have to always keep in mind these two principles. For man, truth and righteousness are his two eyes. In fact, they are his very life principles. He may undertake any activity, he may do any job or business, but he should make truth and righteousness the undercurrent of all his endeavors. Man has to take a newer path. Years have rolled by, but man has not given up his old and mean feelings. He has to purify his heart. Humanness will blossom only when there is transformation of the heart. Merely putting on new clothes is not enough, man has to change his character and behaviour. His conduct should be based on truth and righteousness.”  – Divine Discourse, Apr 14, 2003.
