In our ongoing series – Streams of Sadhana, we turn our attention to collective yoga this time – Yoga of the Indian Nation. India today is politically free. But is she also on her way to rediscover her unique temperament, her true role and mission? Are we as a people working toward a true Indian renaissance that is grounded in India’s eternal spirit and truths? The current issue explores some of these questions and more.
In this 2-part article, the author highlights what makes India’s nation-soul different from that of Europe. Using insights from Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo, the author emphasizes that it is this essential temperament of Indian nation which gives her a unique mission for the world and humanity.
On this auspicious day of Vijayadashami, we release a special issue celebrating Divine Shakti.

Invoking the Divine Mother who is the Source of all our work and the ever-present Force and Guidance behind it all, we invite our readers to browse through this specially curated issue.
“Sri Aurobindo’s linking of archetypal wisdom, its basic metapsychology to the modern crisis marks him as a mature visionary. The disproportionate development of a post-industrial society calls for a matching insight. To the anguish of modern man there is no remedy but the mystical,” writes the author.
In our ‘All Life is Yoga’ series, after taking up the topics of conscious parenting, education, work and human relationships, we now focus on Money. What is the nature of money? What is the yogic attitude toward money? What does Indian tradition say about this? What are some key insights from the works and vision of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother which we must keep in our consideration as we navigate this tricky area of material well-being for ourselves and our societies and nations, and also prepare ourselves for higher pursuits of life? These and other related questions are addressed through our offerings in this issue.
