I am rushing to polish our website so please check and follow our site: http://tagore-einstein-council.de
Tagore and Einstein have met in Berlin twice Tagore Celebrations Berlinand it became a budding deep friedship. The convesations and much more can be found at that site. One objective is make us “Westerneers” aware that there was not only Gandhi in India, but that Gandhi had a fatherly friend! So Tagore was travelling the world after his Nobel Prize, was bridging culture and agriculture, and eduacation from kindergarten to highte educations, created a unique university,…. and and and – I hope you like to study with us not only EAST-WEST Synthesis and check around the “windrose” of orientation and reference schemas and their “harmonisation” …. http://in-betweener.org/
For In-commers into the matter I can say, he was the head of a region, all people in India still sing their song and play his music, he was a real “renaissance being” I believe he would have smiled and told us that there was more than just one Western Renaissance. I recommend the last years conference NEW RENAISSANCE 3 where the keynote by Marilyn Wilhelm was very much about this matter! Enjoy all contributions at: http://www.scimednet.org/towards-a-new-renaissance-3-harmonising-spirituality-nature-and-health-2/ but do not miss: Dr. Marilyn Wilhelm: The Cosmos is a Kinship System and please check her Wilhelm Scholê http://www.wilhelmschole.org and was recently in Berlin as she shared the same passions like Tagore: Cultures, Education, Arts, Sciences, … but enabling Education nowadays has a modern fancy name: Entrepreneuship, so she subsumed it at the Entrepreneuship Summit:

Founding a school for integrated learning – Kurzvorstellung:Marilyn Wilhelm from entrepreneurship also do check her 11 minutes presentation !! http://www.entrepreneurship.de/artikel/entrepreneurship-education-founding-learning-video/

And there is more to added to a "wind-rose" synthesis when we want to takle modern global and Media Culture&Cyberculture!! challenges!! http://benking.de/meta-paradigm.htm
and see a simple, well packed question! do we go for Show or Schau !? http://benking.de/show-schau.htm
I recommed for example the name of Ralph Siu http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Siu and his Panetics Society (speakersbureau http://benking.de/isp-speakers.html), as there is a need not only for Lebenskunst – Art of Living, but also for Regierungskunst – Art of Participation, Deliberations & Governance. See Order and Orientation challenge
I believe Tagore would have seen in Ralph a “kindred spirit”. check out: TAO OF SCIENCE: http://www.newciv.org/ISSS_Primer/asem16rs.html, and the eulogies in Applying panetics: http://benking.de/applying-panetics1999.htm and this link (only in German - sorry: http://benking.de/mitgefuehl-leiden.html)
I feel the need for Orientation is in modern times paramount and crucial, maybe remember as I wrote this little story in an old annecdote in our our WHOLENESS SEMINAR some time ago: So, Who is in charge on the GLOBAL SPACEship and where are we going !? What I mention is the story of a session on the way towards the foundation session for General System Sciences in California, as it was presented by the brother of President Havel: Longing for Unified Knowledge by Ivan Havel http://www.newciv.org/ISSS_Primer/asem07ih.html

I know I need to bring Humboldt - Alexander and Wilhelm !! - and Carl Ritter and some other names into the picture as well, so maybe check below - or see some dear names for me here: http://www.quergeist.net or or some more content in this Blog: www.quergeist.info, or come back later..... and naturally many others - so Tagore knew he is and was not alone !

What I am aiming at? in a nutshell?, terse?, without overclaims and oversimplifications? http://benking.de/ceptualinstitute/overview.htm maybe 10001 unities in diversities http://p-n-w.net/events/1001diversities.htm but that is again oversimplistic suporting perlexity instead of digging into and living with diversity ! I can only respond by proposing some frames and shared agreements in a systemic mind/sense http://benking.de/systems/encyclopedia/newterms/ beyond the need to agree and our Dialog among Civilizations exercise some years ago. http://benking.de/dialog/dialog-among-civilizations.htm
