(An excerpt from the new-year message by Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji in 2011)

There is a proverb: “Time and tide wait for no one.” Breath after breath, moment after moment, day after day, and year after year, the play of time continues. We were born in time, and we must leave in time. Within this limited frame of individual existence, it is our foremost duty to sincerely strive so that success will be at hand — not just material success, but also success in spiritual pursuit. If we examine our lives and achievements through the years, we will surely be aware of our accomplishments, but this is not enough. The beauty in life is not living for oneself; it is giving, sharing, and caring. Let us try to offer all of our goodness to others, not our sorrow and misery. Let us share our knowledge, skill, and positive thought; let us relieve others of their suffering.

We should care for each other because we belong to one family. The yogis declared that the universe is our home and every living being is part of our family. Every living being should be loved and cared for. We should care for the environment, the plants, the trees, and other beings, including all people. Through this kind of living, our hearts open with joy and divine bliss. Such a life is a bit difficult to create, but every effort brings more strength and courage.
