We celebrate the Mother’s birthday and the anniversary of the Golden Day with a special issue on the theme – The Mother’s Grace.
After exploring the theme of Yoga of Indian Nation, we do a deep dive into the soul of India, the Sanatana Dharma. The Veda, Sri Aurobindo tells us, is the bed-rock of Indian civilisation, and is the creation of an early intuitive and symbolic mentality. Inspired by this we explore in this issue the theme of symbolism in Sanatana Dharma.
This 2-part article summarizes Sri Aurobindo’s explanations of the deeper symbolism of Vedic Gods and Goddesses, powers and names of the One Supreme.
Read in this part about the deeper symbolism of several Vedic goddesses such as Saraswati, Ila, Mahi, Dakshina and Usha.
In our ongoing series – Streams of Sadhana, we turn our attention to collective yoga this time – Yoga of the Indian Nation. India today is politically free. But is she also on her way to rediscover her unique temperament, her true role and mission? Are we as a people working toward a true Indian renaissance that is grounded in India’s eternal spirit and truths? The current issue explores some of these questions and more.
How is Sri Aurobindo’s spiritual nationalism which invokes the highest ideals of Sanatana Dharma different from a narrow and exclusive religious nationalism?
In this part, the author briefly underlines the history of secularism in Europe and investigates its inappropriateness in the Indian context.
On this auspicious day of Vijayadashami, we release a special issue celebrating Divine Shakti. During this Navaratri, our worship of the Divine Shakti took many forms including working on this issue, facilitating a 4-day intense workshop for children, and more. Invoking the Divine Mother who is the Source of all our work and the ever-present Force and Guidance behind it all, we invite our readers to browse through this specially curated issue.
This is the first issue in a new series titled ‘Streams of Sādhanā’, and focuses on the theme – Concentration and Focus. As is the practice at Renaissance, the current issue explores the theme in a multi-dimensional manner, since Integral Yoga does not leave out any aspect of life. Readers will find here explorations into the topic from the perspectives of spiritual sādhanā, study and mental development, overall well-being, and more.
