The Delight of Existence

This issue is dedicated to the idea of rasa, ananda and saundarya. The featured article here (in four parts) deals with the concept and meaning of rasa in which the author not only deals with the semantic approach but also its connection with the transcendental and immanent reality, and the seership of the artist. The word of the month is suṣamā. The Guiding Light section has some beautiful passages from Sri Aurobindo’s writings related to beauty and rasa.

Rasa: It’s Meaning and Scope By V K Gokak (Original Version from Sri Aurobindo Circle Journal 1966) – Part 4

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.

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.

Will the New Creation be Preceded by Destruction? (Part 2)

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.
