Greetings for the New Year 2022! 
January issue of RENAISSANCE is now released.
Theme - Receptivity

To be receptive is to feel the urge to give and the joy of giving to the Divine’s Work all one has, all one is, all one does.

–  The Mother (CWM, 14: 148)


This issue on Receptivity highlights on how to open ourselves and receive the Divine force and aspire to become an instrument of the Divine action for the new creation.

Renaissance available at:

How can we open ourselves more and more to the Light and Force? How do we develop within us a greater receptivity to receive this Light and Force?
The Great Masters everywhere have emphasised several ways; foremost among them are: sincere and patient one-pointed aspiration, genuine humility, unyielding faith and complete trust in the Divine, elimination of ego-insistence in all forms, and self-offering and surrender to the Divine.

The month of January brings birthdays of several key figures in Indian history -  Swami Vivekananda, Subhash Chandra Bose and Dilip Kumar Roy to name a few. Another important name in this list is Barindra Kumar Ghose, known more popularly as Barin Ghose. Born on January 5, 1880, Barin was Sri Aurobindo's younger brother, and a great revolutionary in the Swadeshi movement. 
For our book of the month, we bring for our readers last chapter of the book The Tale of My Exile by Barin Ghose. This book is his record of his hard imprisonment at the dreaded Cellular Jail at Andamans. READ MORE HERE.
“All great artistic work proceeds from an act of intuition, not really an intellectual idea or a splendid imagination,—these are only mental translations,—but a direct intuition of some truth of life or being, some significant form of that truth, some development of it in the mind of man.” - Sri Aurobindo, CWSA, Vol. 20, p. 266
We speak with artist Bindu Popli who, for the last 30 years, has been immersed in creating art that comes from a place deep within her. For her, "painting is flowering, not making. The unknown world unfolds itself.” CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO.
