The Time Imperishable

This issue is dedicated to the Time Imperishable. The featured article here deals with one important question whether destruction is necessary for a new creation or not. If not how the Supramental Truth which will create a New Age force is going to deal with the elements in the world which still resist its advent or working.

Kishor Gandhi: True Meaning of the Destroyer Aspect of the Divine: Continued from part 1: This Gita’s conception of God as the Time-Spirit in the aspect of the Destroyer should not be identified with the crude Semitic religious idea of God as a stern and wrathful almighty Creator and Judge who punishes the sinners and casts them into an eternal hell.

Kishor Gandhi: Furthering the Evolutionary Transition: Continued from part 3: The manifestation of the supramental Truth will or will not be preceded by destruction will depend upon the choice that humanity makes. It may, however, be argued that ultimately it is not the human choice but the Divine Grace that decides everything… but it is also necessary to remember that in the actual workings of the world the human will and choice are not irrelevant factors.

Man and Nature

This special issue is dedicated to invoking several of the names and forms of Shakti – from Aditi, the Divine Mother to Mother India, the Bharat Shakti; from Mahashakti and Her Four Great Powers to Woman as Shakti, Nāri Shakti. It is an expression of our adoration of the Divine Mother because Hers indeed is the force that moves all and acts in all, the universal Energy, the Conscious-Power.
