Only then would we have celebrated the arrival of New Year in the true sense. We should practise and propagate newer ideals in our daily life. Vedanta declares, Aham etat na -I am not this. Aham means T, the Atmic principle and ‘this’ refers to body. We should not give scope to ahamkara or ego by identifying ourselves with the body. ‘I’ does not correspond to the body. ‘I’ corresponds to the eternal and immortal Atma, which is not tainted by ego, pomposity, and immorality. Only when we develop such Atma viswasa or Self-confidence can we set an ideal to others.”
