      Gurudev Sri Swami Chidanandaji's New Year message has been uploaded to our
      site at:

      In this message, Gurudev requests all of us to devote one hour every day
      in meditation, to the projection of peace thoughts so that the present
      troubles and turmoils of the world may cease. The following prayer by our
      ancients may be used for our meditation:

      "May peace be unto all the quarters! May peace be unto the skies! May
      peace be unto the earth! May peace be to the waters of the earth! May
      peace be to the medicinal herbs and all plants on earth! May peace be to
      the celestials! May peace be to Brahma, the Creator! May peace be upon
      Peace itself!"

      EXPERIENCE IS SUBJECTIVE: "Swamiji, if some drink coffee at night they get
      sound sleep, but it is just the opposite in my case," Atmaramji said to
      the Master.

      "That is the beauty," commented the Master. "For some, castor oil will
      relieve constipation and for others it will increase it. What do you say
      about that? That which is nectar to one becomes poison to another. This is
      a great mystery. It clearly shows that there is no truth in the object
      itself. As you are, so you see and experience. The truth about the object
      lies only in the truth about the subject. Therefore, know the Self and be

      always untouched by evil. As youth, childhood and old age belongs to the

      the senses and not to the Self, so also the defects of the world do not
      belong to Brahman." - Swami Sivananda
