Ushering in 2009
31st Dec 2008, Bad Antogast, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
A few minutes after the clock chimed twelve, ushering the New Year, H.H.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar gave a message for 2009 at the Art of Living Center in Bad Antogast, Germany.
He said: "The time on this planet for us is a gift. When we consider time as a gift, our whole outlook towards life shifts.Like every year, 2008 also has offered you many gifts. With its thorns, it has made you strong; with its petals, it has given you joy. Let us celebrate with this one intention that let's bring home (Spiritual) Knowledge to everyone - that life, events are impermanent.
What is permanent is our spirit, our consciousness. It has no birth, and death. Life at a higher plane is eternal. So celebrate every moment knowing that every moment is a gift to us.In 2009, we have a great responsibility to uplift the planet from the ashes of the disasters of 2008. New hope, new creation has to be made."
