What Is ‘New’ This Year? 新年新什么?

新年新什么?

所谓新者何,
亦如常人贴新春联、
着新衣等以为新乎?…
所谓新者,
乃是改过自新也。

弘一大师

What Is ‘New’ This Year?

What is that so-called ‘new’?
Is it also like ordinary persons’
pasting of new spring couplets,
wearing new clothes and others as ‘new’?…
That so-called ‘new’,
is to correct transgressions
to personally be a ‘new’ person.
