New Year Message ( January 2015) - by Swami Sivananda
this glorious New Year’s day make a strong resolve to wipe away
all the old worldly Vasanas or tendencies and bad impressions
and to control the senses and the mind.
Know the value of
time. Time is most precious. Utilise every second profitably.
Live every moment of your life for the realisation of your ideal
and goal. Do not procrastinate. That "tomorrow" will never come.
Now or never. Abandon idle gossiping. Kill egoism, laziness and
inertia. Forget the past. A glorious and brilliant future is
Equal vision is the touchstone of knowledge. Unselfishness is
the touchstone of virtue. Brahmacharya is the touchstone of
ethics. Oneness is the touchstone of Self-realisation. Humility
is the touchstone of devotion. Therefore, be unselfish, humble
and pure. Develop equal vision. Be in tune with the Infinite.

Love For Tiny Creatures "
His cult of non-violence is extended even to the small
irritating insects like bugs and mosquitoes whom people kill
almost by reflex action and do not feel any qualms whatever.
Swamiji endures their stings and allows them to have their own
way with his body. Once while he was doing Kirtan of the Lord's
Name, a disciple saw a mosquito sitting on his body and
attempted to drive it out. Before he could reach him
Swamijiindicated by sign not to disturb the creature. After the
Kirtan was over Swamiji told him, "The hungry one having
appeased its hunger goes away automatically; you need not drive
There was an incident at Kotdwar. While Swamiji was giving his
address a poisonous insect flew towards him. Yogesh Bahugunaji,
a devotee in his company, at once attempted to drive it out.
Swamiji, who was then seriously engaged in making an important
point, did not lose sight of this. He signalled to Bahugunaji to
leave the insect alone and continued his talk. After sometime he
took the insect tenderly and got it seated on his palm, assuring
it perfect, security, as it were. This is the unique Brahmi
Sthiti of the sage who in spite of all his busy schedule in
Vyavahara is constantly vigilant to observe Ahimsa and love for
all creatures at all times.
Year 2015 Greetings & New Year Message from Swami Adhyatmananda
Immortal Atman ! Beloved and blessed children of the Divine !
Happy New Year to you. Prayers and Best wishes for the Year
In the Iron age, when adharma (unrighteousness),
bhagavat-vismriti (forgetfulness of God), vimukhi drishti
(view against God ), atyachara (irreligious conduct) is
the order of the day, consider the meaningfulness of this unique
God-filled way of life. Consider the normal trend of Kali
Yuga and consider the trend of your life. And to whom do you
owe it ? How best to benefit by it ?
These are things which should be very much in our minds as we
approach the advent of the New Year and the advent of a great
Avatara, a great descent of Divinity, who proclaimed : “ Seek ye
first the Kingdom of Heaven” and “ What availeth it a man if he
gains the whole world but loses his own soul ?” He proclaimed
the secondariness of all things in comparison to the attaining
of God, the attainment of the great Goal, which is the
fulfillment of the central destiny of man, the central purpose
of life. -Swami Adhyatmananda

illumined within, such a Yogi attains absolute freedom or Moksha,
himself becoming Brahman.(5:24)
The sages obtain absolute freedom or Moksha—they whose sins have
been destroyed, whose dualities (perception of dualities or
experience of the pairs of opposites) are torn asunder, who are
self-controlled, and intent on the welfare of all beings.(5:25)
Those who strive for liberation from old age and death, taking
refuge in Me, realise in full that Brahman, the whole knowledge

Attaining to this, none is deluded. Being established therein,
