NIBODHATA , the only Bengali journal of Sri Sarada Math, is now releaseing in every 2 months. So 6 issues are available annually. The January issue is a special one. Since its inception in 1987, the magazine has been enjoying much appreciation from different sections of people both in India and abroad. NIBODHATA contains articles on serious matters related to religion, science, art, culture, society, history and the like. The list of contributors includes senior nuns and monks, as well as erudite scholars from respective fields and devotees deeply interested in Ramakrishna-Vivekananda ideals.
The word NIBODHATA, literally meaning, ‘learning about the Self’ comes from a well-known verse of Katha Upanishad, oft-quoted by Swami Vivekananda. His vision of an ideal magazine is found echoing from his writings.
He said, "...by the spread of new ideas within the country, the public at large will be benefited...In language and literature, in poetry and arts, in everything, we must give the public only positive ideas...We should lift all, rouse all...The ideas, language and everything should be moulded in a new fashion, a new vigor must be introduced in the Bengali language..."
NIBODHATA strives in its own way to realize that vision and ideal of Swami Vivekananda. As the globe becomes increasingly complex, consumeristic and fiercely competitive, the life-giving message of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda appear more relevant and appropriate to the humanity and its problems today. NIBODHATA stands for upholding and propagating this universal testament of hope and light for the people in the modern century.
