     The monthly Internet magazine "Palitra" has been published in Bulgarian since November 2003.  It  is  a completely non-commercial project maintained by a group of volunteers. In the selection of the published material, preference is given to works concerning the intersection of science, art, and philosophy and their synthesis.

     In the short period since its inception, the magazine has published the works of N. Berdyaev, K. Tsiolkovski, father P. Florenski, N.  Roerich, N. Losev, V. Solovyov, S. Mihailovski, Geo Milev, N. Rainov in the Philosophy section.  Great attention has been devoted to the philosophical legacy of H. P. Blavatsky, with a focus on works unaccessible to the Bulgarian audience for more than a century. 

   The Literature section has presented modern Bulgarian poets (N. Kolev, S. Slavcheva, B. Cholakova, Y. Perfanov, B. Zlatev, M. Gyuzeleva) and writers (S. Valev, K. Yordanov, M. Deshev, Y. Deyanova), as well as classical authors such as O. Mandelshtam, A. Heydok, N. Roerich, D. Podvarzachov, N. Rainov,  H. Yasenov, N. Rakitin, I.  Grozev.

     The Science section comprises the works of V. Vernadsky, N. Kozirev, L. Gindilis, T. Taylor, K. Srinivasa Rao.

     "Palitra" has also published classics of the ancient wisdom such as "The Emerald Tablet of Hermes" and   Simeon ben Yohai's commentary to Zohar "Sifra di-Zeniuta".

    An editorial column "Footnotes" is dedicated to current social issues  from the public life.
    The magazine has joined an Internet campaign initiated by the International Centre of the Roerichs to protect the name and the legacy of the Roerichs. It has also participated in a campaign to bring public attention to the ongoing controversy surrounding 288 paintings by Nicholas and Svetoslav Roerich.  In his will, the late S. Roerich left these paintings to the International Centre of the Roerichs, an institution that he founded; yet they continue to remain in the illegal possession of the State Museum of Oriental Art in Moscow.

    Special issues of "Palitra" marked the 100th anniversary of S. Roerich, the 130th anniversary of N. Roerich, and the 70th anniversary of the Roerich Pact. The Spring Lecture Series "Unity of Times", which took place during April and May 2005, was also dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Roerich Pact.  This Series was organized by the "Palitra" Internet Magazine and the "Nova Palitra" society, with the support of the "Art Ideas - Spiritual Light" foundation and featured the following lecturers: Tsvetan Tsekov ("Karandash"), a renown Bulgarian artist and a researcher of Leonardo Da Vinci's art; Konstantin Medarov, a historian; Dr. Tatiana Stantcheva, a physicist; Dr. Nikolay Kolev, a philosopher; and Boyko Zlatev, an astronomer and a poet.  The lectures fell broadly into two categories: the research and preservation of cultural monuments of different historical epochs, and the evolutionary laws in the development of humanity.  The Lecture Series was covered in the Bulgarian Media and attracted numerous attendants, including scientists, cultural public figures, and members of various societies such as the Society of the Friends of the Russian Book, the National Bulgarian Roerich Society, and the Petar Dimkov Society.

    In addition to publishing monthly issues, the editors of "Palitra" are also working on a project to create internet pages about renown enlightened persons. In 2004, pages about H. P. Blavatsky, A. Heydok, and S. Roerich were completed and published.
