Nicholas And Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists And Peacemakers
Nicholas And Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists And Peacemakers, by Ruth Drayer. The Roerichs were Russian visionaries who believed beauty could solve the world's problems and unify humanity. Nicholas (1874-1947) was an acclaimed artist, author, explorer, conservationist, archeologist, humanitarian and peacemaker; his wife Helena (1879-1955) was a teacher, healer, and co-author of the Agni Yoga series. Interweaving the Agni Yoga writings and the Roerichs' connection with Tibetan Buddhism with their world travels, flight from the Bolsheviks, and subsequent life in New York, here is the story of their immense aesthetic, humanitarian and spiritual contributions.
