Tagore and Einstein have met in Berlin twice Tagore Celebrations Berlinand it became a budding deep friedship. Tagore was lecturing at Humboldt University in 1920 and 1930 was well received talking directly to hearts and minds and bodies of the students. Unfortunatley too little was taken up after the 30ies....
The conversations between Tagore and Einstein and much more can be found at the Tagore-Einstein site or some links are provided for easier finding of very interesting texts. One objective of the Council is to 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.... [link]
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 keynot by Marilyn Wilhelm was very much about this matter! Enjoy all contributions at: [link] but do not miss: Dr. Marilyn Wilhelm: The Cosmos is a Kinship System and please check her Wilhelm ScholĂȘ [link] 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: [link]

But there is more to "wind-rose" synthesis ! I recommed the name of Ralph Siu [link] and his Panetics Society (speakersbureau [link]), as there is a need not only for Lebenskunst - Art of Living, but also for Regierungskunst - Art of Governance. I believe Tagore would have seen in Ralph a "kindred spirit". check out: TAO OF SCIENCE: [link], and the eulogies in Applying panetics: [link] and this link (only in German - sorry:http://benking.de/mitgefuehl-leiden.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: www.quergeist.net or come back later.....

Recently learned about a film series: THE TAGORES with kind words from UNESCO so maybe check: TAGORE - Documentary Film - supported by UNESCO. have a look: [link]

last not least: supporting local farming and the social fabric is one thing, and last not least the seed funding or micro-financing are central avenues of Tagores concern. He gave most of his money from his Nobel prize award for his micro-credit giving loans to the poor. The system was unfortunately not continued after his death but it is worth to see early "banking" systems not just 30 years ago with Mohammed Yunnus, but Tagore 100 years ago ! For more see the book hitting the streets today (May 8th) Traveller between the Worlds: http://www.klemm-oelschlaeger.de/product_info.php?products_id=102(in German)

LATE NOTE: Read the Independent
Rabindranath introduced microcredit over 100 years ago May 5th, 2011
