“Science is nothing but the finding of unity. As soon as science would reach perfect unity, it would stop from further progress, because it would reach the goal..... Thus is it, through multiplicity and duality, that the ultimate unity is reached. Religion can go no farther. This is the goal of all science. All science is bound to come to this conclusion in the long run. Manifestation, and not creation, is the word of science today; and the Hindu is only glad that what he has been cherishing in his bosom for ages is going to be taught in more forcible language and with further light from the latest conclusions of science”. Swami Vivekananda Address 1893, Parliament of Religions Chicago.


“India of the ages is not dead nor has she spoken her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human peoples. And that which must seek now to awake is not an anglicized oriental people, docile pupil of the West and doomed to repeat the cycle of the occident's success and failure, but still the ancient immemorable Shakti recovering her deepest self, lifting her head higher towards the supreme source of light and strength and turning to discover the complete meaning and a vaster form of her Dharma.” Maharshi Aurobindo


Objectives of Calendar 

1. Europe was just born, while Renaissance meant Rebirth of ancient Greco-Roman principles of democracy, arts, science and humanity that preceded the genesis of Christianity in Eastern Europe and North Africa (Anatolia, Balkans, Upper Egypt) that still interfaced Asia. Later modern American Civilization was born re-capturing the Pre-Christian principles of human civilization that essentially was derived from the source, the origin – hence, ‘The Oriental Heritage’ (1935, Book 1) of the Modern Scientific West (Will Durant, The Story of Civilization). 


Much of progress in the name of breakthroughs in Science was guided by this temper resulting in a separation of art from sciences, humanity from technology, at the huge cost of suppressing values, ethics and spiritual growth in the name of ‘Scientific progress’.


2. An one-legged material advent of the Industrially advanced West and a blind-folded trail and imitation by the relatively materially-underdeveloped East have pushed the world to the brink of four major disasters.


The present calendar presents a 12 page evidence of this turning point, which has already been initiated by great thinkers and scientists, but still these are unknown to many and many in the reductionist lobbies practicing socially-and politically-conflict-driven ideologies to restrict truly open-ended scientific progress.”
