The path of those who do good to the world is the path of work. It is no path of speculation. Good thoughts are not enough to save us. Good work leads us through betterment to perfection. Now mankind is passing through the gateway between good thoughts and good work. There comes a time when people do not find time to think because they have to work. It is the only atonement of the present mankind. It prevents them from going astray and entering into the craze of life. Intellectualism is no solution. Philosophical value is no solution. Doing something which you know as good is the only thing that helps you out from the present age of insufficiency. Spiritualism is no philosophy. Neither philosophy nor materialism can show us the way. The scriptures of all nations are great because they guide us to act and they do not preach sermons.
I wish all of us to follow the path of doing something and not only wishing something good. Let us grow strong and use our bodies. We have enough used our minds without using our bodies. Transformation takes place not through knowledge, not through philosophy, not through politics, but through the path of action. If you eat, your hunger vanishes. If you begin to study how to eat, your hunger increases. Let us know this and let us follow the path of leaders of mankind. Lord Krishna, Sri Rama and Buddha made action their lot and brought this world into existence. They have worked out our existence. May they bless us all, to work and get transmitted. I wish you thrive well by doing your work throughout the year.
