Sri Chinmoy’s New Year’s Message for 1970


Whence comes man, whither goes he?

He comes forth from God's Aspiration and journeys into God's Perfection.

— Sri Chinmoy


This message for January 1, 1970, appears for the first time in print in Sri Chinmoy’s 23rd book, God’s Hour, published in 1973.

One difference between this version and a later version published in New Year’s Messages from Sri Chinmoy, 1966-1994, appears in the last sentence, where the word ‘journeys’ is changed to the word ‘enters’. Whether this is a typographical error or an intended editorial change is unclear.
