India - From Past Dawns to Future Noons

Call for submissions for Aug 2022 special issue of Renaissance; theme – Sri Aurobindo, the Eternal Presence

To celebrate the 150th birthday of Sri Aurobindo and 75th anniversary of India’s independence, we are bringing out a special issue in August 2022 with the theme – Sri Aurobindo, the Eternal Presence.

On 27 October 1962, the Mother gave a message which we as Her children must always remember. We keep this message of the Mother in front as we begin work on the special issue.

Patriotic sentiments are not incompatible with our yoga—far from it—to will for the strength and the integrity of one’s Motherland is a quite legitimate sentiment, the will that she may make progress and that more and more she may manifest, in full freedom, the truth of her being, is a fine and noble will which cannot be harmful for our yoga.

But one must not get excited, one must not plunge prematurely into action. One can and should pray, aspire and will for the victory of the truth and, at the same time, continue to discharge one’s daily duties and wait quietly for the unmistakable sign to come, indicating the action to be done.

With my blessings.

CWM, Vol. 13, p. 356

We invite submissions in the form of articles, reflections, artwork, poetry, stories, anecdotes that speak of any of these attributes.
