As we welcome this new step, let us express gratitude to all who have worked lovingly in spreading the message of Heartfulness all these years. With the same sense of deep gratitude, as we meditate every day, I pray we all develop pure love like Him. Let us interact and cooperate with that same love. May wisdom and maturity prevail among us, as we continue to contribute to the growth and strengthening of the Heartfulness spirit. It is destined to spread all over the world. May our journey in the coming year be guided by the transformative power of love. As I conclude this announcement, I am reminded of the below message:

23 September 1947:

Swami Vivekananda: “I want the Mission to function smoothly. I do not want malice to be active at any stage. You should all unite and combine together for the common cause. Make yourselves like the strands of a single rope. The future depends on you.”
—Whispers from the Brighter World, Vol. 4, April 1946-June 1955

With prayers,
