Yet another year has come to an end. Yet another year has daw...ned. Even as we cross this man made marker of time we look back at the year passed with fond memories, with pains we wish to forget and thoughts of events, meaningful and inscrutable. Introspecting, one wonders how every new beginning is also marked by an end. The night ends for the dawn to break; a new year is born when the older year fades. Time gives birth to time.
Time alone consumes time. Time bows to none. And God is described as ‘Kalagarbha’, the One in whose womb is borne Time itself. Could we ask for more than to be guided and guarded, lead and loved by such a Lord Himself!
He has held our hands to take us on a journey beyond the fragments of time and space, to a state beyond grief and elation. May be that is why even though we live under His divine umbrella we cannot choose one over the other. His ways are inscrutable; the choices He makes for us can leave us baffled, whining or pleasantly surprised. But one thing which is ever constant is His love for us.
Let us hold on to that anchor and welcome this New Year 2015. Yes, with Him by our side this is going to be a glorious time for us! Let us glorify the saga of our dear Lord and celebrate a Glorious New Year!
There is nothing best than to see what our beloved Swami taught us in New Year.
“The year becomes new, the day become holy, when you sanctify it by spiritual practices (sadhana), not otherwise. Sadhana can grow only in a field fertilized by Love. Love (prema) is the sine qua non of devotion (bhakthi). The love you now have toward material objects, name, fame, wife, children, etc. should be sanctified by being subsumed by the more overpowering Love of God. Let your tiny drops of love for things material merge with the stream of love for God and be elevated. Have the love of God filling and thrilling your heart; then you cannot hate anyone, you cannot indulge in unhealthy rivalries, you will not find fault with anyone. Life becomes soft, sweet and smooth”.
- Divine Discourse (1st January 1967)

Wish you happy and peaceful New Year. What is the happiest day in your life? All are happy days to a person of true knowledge.
Happiness is an internal conscious experience which comes as an effect of the extinction of mental or physical desire. The lesser the desire, the greater is the happiness. So perfect happiness consists in the destruction or satisfaction of all desires in the absolute being.
Life is an experience meant to train the individual for a higher, deeper and... expanded state of existence through the experience of the results of action. The aim of everybody's life is the attainment of complete perfection in the Spiritual Absolute.
Prema is not an illusion. It is a reality and actuality for those who have realised oneness in life.
What is man's dearest possession apart from his life? One's dearest possession is one's own true Self and there is no permanently dear thing apart from that.
God is great, all others are mere dust. God only is real and great. Everything else is unreal and valueless. I go further to say that God only exists and there is nothing second to Sai (God).
Heartiest greetings and all good wishes for a Happy Day and New Year. Love is patient and kind, it is not jealous or conceited or proud. Love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable.
Love does not keep a record of wrongs. Love is not happy with evil, but is happy with truth. Love never gives up and it gives faith and hope. Love is eternal.
With Love, Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
On New Year’s Day and the whole year through,
I hope the kindness you’ve given to others returns many times to you.
May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart’s possessing,
and may the New Year bring you and yours Sai Baba’s blessing.
Happy New Year 2015!!!
Life is an opportunity afforded to each not to eat and drink, but to achieve something nobler and higher to merge in the Reality.
Let God work through you and there will be no more duty. Let God shine forth. Let God show Himself. Live God, Eat God. Drink God. Breathe God. Realize the Truth and the other things will take care of themselves.
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
The New Year or a new month does not bring with it any new joy or sorrow. Every second is new, because it heralds the march of time. A year is in fact a succession of seconds turning into minutes, days and months.
It is only when every moment is cherished as new, will the new year become new. The sacred way in which every moment is spent will determine the fruitfulness of the year..
