The pages that follow contain the exhortations made by Pujya Sri Swami ChidanandajiMaharaj to the inmates of the Headquarters Sivananda Ashram during December 1990-January1991. Though these exhortations were spread over several days, there was a continuity in them, afact which prompted us to edit Swamiji’s talks in the shape of a unified discourse.The words spoken by Swamiji for a few brief minutes every day during the early morningMeditation Class in the holy precincts of Gurudev’s Samadhi Shrine deeply touched the hearts of those assembled and impressed upon them the total necessity and the imperative urgency toreview their own lives in the light of Gurudev’s teachings, so that they could plan ahead for theNew Year to come.It is a call to shape one’s life anew in the light of a careful review of one’s past. Manywill find this inspiring booklet a most appropriate gift for presentation to friends not only on NewYear’s Eve, but also on Birthdays, Anniversaries and such other occasions.Shivanandanagar,25th December, 1991.
