Renaissance is the monthly e-journal of Sri Aurobindo Foundation of Indian Culture (SAFIC), highlighting numerous forms in which the eternal spirit of India is  being reborn and renewed.

It is a space featuring inspiring articles, videos, essays, stories, reflections and accounts of India and her creative genius manifesting in various domains – spiritual, artistic, literary, philosophic, scientific, aesthetic.  

Speaking of the significance of the turning of national mind to rediscover and recover the true sense and significance of Indian culture as a first and essential step to a new rebirth of India, Sri Aurobindo wrote about hundred years ago:

“The national mind turned a new eye on its past culture, reawoke to its sense and import, but also at the same time saw it in relation to modern knowledge and ideas. Out of this awakening vision and impulse the Indian renaissance is arising, and that must determine its future tendency.” (Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo, Vol. 20, p. 15)

Taking our inspiration from these words we will bring for our readers some thought-provoking ideas, some insightful voices, some fresh perspectives on diverse topics and issues concerning India – her past, present, but most importantly, her future.  

The editorial team offers this work, this expression of love and reverence for Mother India, at the feet of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
