I recently stumbled upon a Nicholas Roerich Musuem website and I was very very amazed by his collection of art works. I am so surprised to see spiritual paintings and depictions of Tibet, Lama Tsongkhapa and Buddha Maitreya in his collections. I am so happy to see this and I thank the Nicholas Roerich’s Museum of New York for having his art preserved and shared online. It is a treasure of the past we can certainly learn and appreciate from. I have placed the paintings and information here to create more awareness on this great explorer, philosopher, traveler and spiritualist. For more, you must go to his websites.

Apparently Nicholas and his wife Helena Roerich were thought to be Russian superheroes. They inspired the path for spiritual growth and life similar to what in America is called “global awakening”. This is a philosophy that encompasses all peoples and faiths. They both saw through their travels, the different religions and practices, but these all pointed to the same ‘truth’ in different ways. And this different way-of-looking was also the cause for war. They opened the doors to Buddhism and the search form mysticism in their country when it was not mainstream.

Their art trails the path they explored and traveled, from the Middle Eastern land right up to the Himalayas and they continuously visited ‘Shambala’. Many people in Russia liked them for their appearance, manners, simplicity, and generosity. They were great artists, creating wonderful paintings and writings that were thought-provoking. They also were known as philosophers, speakers, teachers, scientists, patrons of the arts, public figures, and cultural workers.

Nicholas and his wife Helena conveyed their understanding and experiences in their beautiful enchanting art and writings of Eastern practices, and thoughts of the Ascended Masters. They were certainly spiritual seekers and many of Nicholas’s paintings featured hidden treasure in the mountains or in water, symbolizing the search in high places for the truth that is hidden within us.

Below I’ve shared with you his biography and also selected a few of his beautiful paintings that I thought you may appreciate and enjoy…I am definitely a fan of his mystical and magical paintings. Gazing upon them brings me to another dimension. Another time. Another reality. His art is imbued with a special blessing that comes from deep within the soul. Within ourselves. We are all looking for the Shangrila that Nicholas Roerich searched for in the vastness of Northern Asia. Through his art we glimpse something ethereal and deep.

One of Diaghilev’s first achievements was the founding, with Princess Maria Tenisheva and others, of the magazine The World of Art. This magazine enjoyed a relatively short life but had an important influence in Russian art circles. The magazine declared itself the enemy of the academicians, the sentimentalists, and the realists. It introduced to its readership, which was made up mostly of the intelligentsia, the vital elements of Russian artistic circles, European post-impressionism, and the modernist movement. Roerich contributed to it and sat on its editorial board. Other Russian painters involved were Alexandre Benois and Leon Bakst, who later became Roerich’s co-workers in the early days of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes.

After finishing his university thesis, Roerich planned to set off for a year in Europe to visit the museums, exhibitions, studios, and salons of Paris and Berlin. Just before leaving he met Helena, daughter of the architect Shaposhnikov and niece of the composer Mussorgsky. There seems to have been an immediate mutual attraction, and they were soon engaged to be married. On his return from Europe their marriage took place.

Helena Roerich was an unusually gifted woman, a talented pianist, and author of many books, including The Foundations of Buddhism and a Russian translation of Helena Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine. Her collected Letters, in two volumes, are an example of the wisdom, spiritual insight, and simple advice she shared with a multitude of correspondents — friends, foes, and co-workers alike.

Later, in New York, Nicholas and Helena Roerich founded the Agni Yoga Society, which espoused a living ethic encompassing and synthesizing the philosophies and religious teachings of all ages.

Prompted by the need to provide some income for his new household, Roerich applied for and won the position of Secretary of the School of the Society for the Encouragement of Art, later becoming its head, the first of many positions that Roerich would occupy as a teacher and spokesman for the arts.

Roerich determined to overhaul the Society and rescue it from the academic mediocrity it had foundered in for many years. He instituted a system of training in art that seems revolutionary even by today’s standards: to teach all the arts — painting, music, singing, dance, theater, and the so-called “industrial arts”, such as ceramics, painting on porcelain, pottery, and mechanical drawing — under one roof, and to give his faculty free rein to design their own curriculum.

The cross-fertilization of the arts that Roerich promoted was evidence of his inclination to harmonize, bring together, and find correspondences between apparent conflicts or opposites in all areas of life. This was a hallmark of his thinking, and one sees it demonstrated in all the disciplines he explored. He constantly sought to break down compartmentalization, and, indeed, even in his own art he defied categorization and created a universe uniquely personal. In his writings on ethics also, it can be seen that he constantly sought to connect ethical problems with scientific knowledge of the surrounding world.

It was Roerich’s gift that these “connections” appeared so natural to him and presented themselves in all life’s manifestations. And it was this talent for synthesis, which he admired in others and encouraged in the young, that enabled him to correlate the subjective with the objective, the philosophical with the scientific, Eastern wisdom with Western knowledge, and to build bridges of understanding between such apparent contradictions. He reminded us that these contradictions were often the result of man’s ignorance, and that an expanding consciousness, which each individual was duty-bound to pursue, would lead to eventual recognition of the illusoriness, or relativity, of things. As Garabed Paelian affirms in his book Nicholas Roerich: Roerich “…learned things ignored by other men; perceived relations between seemingly isolated phenomena, and unconsciously felt the presence of an unknown treasure.” Perhaps it is this “unknown treasure” that in Roerich’s paintings speaks to the viewer who is attuned to that underlying meaning, and further explains the transcendental feelings that some experience through his canvases.

In 1902, the Roerichs celebrated the birth of their first son, George, and in the summers of 1903 and 1904, they set off on an extended tour of forty cities throughout Russia. Roerich’s purpose was to contrast the styles and historical context of Russian architecture. The voyage was one of discovery, for wherever they went he was able to locate the remnants of Russia’s past — ancient monuments, churches, city walls, and castles. He found that these had, in many instances, been neglected for centuries. As an archeologist and art historian he was aware of what an important key they were to Russia’s cultural history. He determined to draw attention to the situation and somehow arrange to have them protected and preserved, and with this goal in mind painted a series of seventy-five works depicting the structures. The experience of this journey had a lasting effect, for on his return in 1904, Roerich promulgated the plan that he hoped would create protection everywhere for such cultural treasures, a plan consummated thirty-one years later in the Roerich Pact. This kind of thinking was not common in those days, and anticipated the importance that, today, most countries of the world place upon preservation of their cultural heritage.

In 1904 Roerich painted the first of his paintings on religious themes. These mostly dealt with Russian saints and legends, and included Message to Tiron, Fiery Furnace, and The Last Angel, subjects that he returned to with numerous variants in later years. The Treasure of the Angels was described by one writer: “A host of angels in white garments stand silently row after row guarding a mysterious treasure with which are bound up the destinies of the world. It is a blue black stone with an image of the crucifix cut into it, glowing with emerald hues.” The angels are an early depiction of the hierarchical Masters that peopled the heart of Roerich’s belief in a Great Brotherhood, watching over and guiding humanity in its eternal journey of evolution. The “stone” pictured by Roerich is the representation of an image that recurs in different forms in his paintings and throughout his writings. The word “treasure” figures prominently in the titles of many of Roerich’s paintings, as, for instance, in The Treasure of the Mountain and Hidden Treasure. It is clearly not material wealth that he refers to, but rather the spiritual treasures that lie buried, yet available to those with the will to unearth them.

Meanwhile Roerich’s search for archeological treasures continued. The Stone Age particularly intrigued him, and he amassed a large collection of artifacts from that era. His paintings frequently reflected this interest, as in Three Glaives in which the subject matter is archeological in nature, and relates to an ancient legend. Roerich wrote about the unusual similarity of Stone Age techniques and methods of ornamentation in far-separated regions of the globe. In comparing these correspondences, he came to instructive conclusions as to the commonality of human expression and creativity.

In 1906, in the first of many entrepreneurial efforts that were to bring Russian art and music to the attention of Europeans, Sergei Diaghilev arranged an exhibition of Russian paintings in Paris. These included sixteen works by Nicholas Roerich. The next year, Diaghilev introduced Fyodor Chaliapin to Paris audiences, along with the music of Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin, Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Glazunov, Stravinsky, and others. In 1909 he presented Chaliapin in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Ivan the Terrible, with costumes and sets designed by Roerich. In the Polovtsian Dances from Borodin’s Prince Igor, also designed by Roerich, and in other ballets, Diaghilev introduced a corps of Russian dancers that later became famous as the Ballets Russes, which included Pavlova, Fokine, and Nijinsky. Roerich’s designs furthered his reputation for the telling depiction of ancient cultures and their practices.

Diaghilev pioneered an art form that involved the collaboration of the designer as “auteur.” Thus Alexandre Benois influenced the creation of the ballet Petrouchka, and Nicholas Roerich was the prime mover and, with Igor Stravinsky, the co-creator of the ballet Le Sacre du Printemps, or, The Rite of Spring.

At first entitled The Great Sacrifice: a Tableau of Pagan Russia, the motif for the ballet grew out of Roerich’s absorption with antiquity and, as he wrote in a letter to Diaghilev, “the beautiful cosmogony of earth and sky.” In the ballet Roerich sought to express the primitive rites of ancient man as he welcomed spring, the life-giver, and made sacrifice to Yarilo, the Sun God. It was a story unlike that of any ballet before it. Stravinsky’s score and Nijinsky’s choreography were equally unexpected, and provoked controversy that was to continue for many years.

At the opening in Paris on May 29, 1913, one of the audience described the scene: “Nothing that has ever been written about the battle of Le Sacre du Printemps has given a faint idea of what actually took place. The theater seemed to be shaken by an earthquake. It shuddered. People shouted insults, howled and whistled, drowning out the music. There was slapping and even punching…the ballet was astoundingly beautiful.”

Interpreting what could have been described as negative, barbaric behavior, Roerich later wrote: “I remember how during the first performance the audience whistled and roared so that nothing could even be heard. Who knows, perhaps at that very moment they were inwardly exultant and expressing this feeling like the most primitive of peoples. But I must say, this wild primitivism had nothing in common with the refined primitiveness of our ancestors, for whom rhythm, the sacred symbol, and refinement of gesture were great and sacred concepts.”

Sacre represented the culmination of Roerich’s collaboration with Diaghilev. He recognized in the impresario a true champion of Russian art, and after Diaghilev’s death in 1929 wrote: “We may regard the…achievement of Diaghilev as that of a great individual, but it would be still more exact to regard him as the true representative of an entire movement of synthesis, an eternally young representative of the great moment when modern art shattered so many conventions and superficialities.”

In the years immediately preceding World War I, Roerich sensed an impending cataclysm, and his paintings symbolically depicted the awful scale of the conflict he felt descending upon the world. These works marked the birth of Roerich the “prophet.”

In Battle in the Heavens Roerich used the violent contrast of light and darkness to suggest the terrible events that would soon overtake Russia and all Europe.

By this time, in his depiction of both historical and natural themes, symbolism and the use of allegory had become essential ingredients in his work. As one critic wrote: “He populated his world not with participants in transitory dramas and comedies, but with spokesmen for the most steadfast ideas about the truth of life, the millennial struggle of good and evil, the triumphal procession of a bright future for all.”

In 1915 Roerich became ill with pneumonia, and was sent by his doctor to recuperate with his family in Sortavala, Finland. This was a period of great unrest the world over, and no less so in the lives of the Roerich family. In Roerich’s paintings of the period, such as Karelia — Eternal Expectation and The Waiting Woman the cold, austere countryside of rocks and uninhabited shores of the north seems to express a sense of poignant longing. In The Waiting Woman, her gaze is fixed on the horizon as if she awaits some sign of the return of long-gone voyagers.

By 1917 the revolution was raging in Russia and returning there would have been dangerous. The family began making plans to visit India, whose magnetic appeal had been felt increasingly during these years. This became a possibility in 1918 when Roerich was invited by a Swedish entrepreneur to exhibit his paintings in Stockholm. From there the family proceeded to London, where Sir Thomas Beecham had invited Roerich to design a new production of Prince Igor for the Covent Garden Opera.

Meanwhile, an invitation to come to America was extended by the Chicago Art Institute. It was accepted, and the tour opened successfully at the Kingore Gallery in New York in 1920. In addition to exhibiting over 400 paintings there and in many cities throughout the United States, Roerich designed the scenery and costumes for productions of The Snow Maiden, and Tristan and Isolde for the Chicago Opera Company. During his travels in America, Roerich painted a series in New Mexico, and the Ocean Series in Monhegan, Maine, where the family spent a summer. He responded to the spirit of enterprise he found in America and frequently wrote about the positive influence its developing technology would have on the world. Seeds were planted and the lives of individuals influenced by Roerich’s magnetism and sense of mission.

In 1921, in New York, he founded the Master Institute of United Arts, in which he planned to realize the educational concepts he had incorporated into the curriculum in St. Petersburg. He attracted a talented group of instructors. They included Deems Taylor, teaching musical theory and composition, Robert Edmund Jones and Lee Simonson, teaching theater design, and top quality instructors in courses that included all musical instruments, aspects of painting and drawing, design and illustration, sculpture, architecture, ballet, drama, journalism, and languages — and lectures were presented by noted individuals such as George Bellows, Claude Bragdon, Norman Bel Geddes, and Stark Young.

The Master Institute flourished, but it did not survive beyond 1937. While the country was in the grips of the Great Depression and the Roerich family was on expedition in the Far East, funds ran out and events caused a complete collapse of the organization that Roerich and his supporters had labored to build.

It was not until 1949 that, under the direction of Sina Fosdick, one of the founding board members and an Institute faculty member, the institution was reborn as Nicholas Roerich Museum, in a brownstone on West 107th Street, where it has remained until the present. Many paintings from the original collection can now be seen there, and in the intervening years major works have been added, making it one of the most comprehensive collections of the artist’s work in the world.

During their stay in America the Roerichs continued to plan for the voyage to India. An orientation toward Eastern spiritual values is reflected in much of Roerich’s creative work of the time. This is seen in his Ocean Series — the three paintings, Himself Came, The Bridge of Glory, and Miracle demonstrate the spiritual power that was beginning to characterize his work. In The Bridge of Glory, Saint Sergius of Radonezh walks in contemplation before a blue bridge formed by the aurora borealis, Roerich’s metaphor for the future spiritual bridge that will connect heaven and earth.

Between 1916 and 1919 Roerich had written a collection of sixty-four blank verse poems that were published in Berlin, in Russian, under the title Flowers of Morya, and subsequently published in English as Flame in Chalice. In them we find Roerich’s inner journey charted and his commitment to spiritual search stated. These poems evoke some of the images that Roerich later used in his paintings, and in a way help us to understand the symbols and meanings that lie behind some of them.

In her essay Flowers of Morya: the Theme of Spiritual Pilgrimage in the Poetry of Nicholas Roerich, Irina Corten writes: “At the core of Roerich’s belief system is the Hindu concept of a beginningless and endless universe which manifests itself in recurring cycles of creation and dissolution of material forms caused by the pulsation of divine energy. On the human plane, this means the rise and fall of civilizations and, in terms of individual life, the reincarnation of a soul…” As Roerich, the poet, writes, in the poem About the Eternal:

Brother, let us abandon all that rapidly changes.
Otherwise we will not have time to turn our thoughts to thatwhich is changeless for all.
To the eternal.

In May, 1923, the Roerichs were at last on their way to India, where, in that ageless land, amid the snows of the Himalayan range, they sought to turn their thoughts to the Eternal.

The Roerichs landed in Bombay in December, 1923, and began a tour of cultural centers and historic sites, meeting Indian scientists, scholars, artists, and writers along the way. By the end of December they were already in Sikkim on the southern slopes of the Himalayas, and it is clear by the speed with which they reached the mountains that the Himalayas were where their interest lay.

They initiated a journey of exploration that would take them into Chinese Turkestan, Altai, Mongolia and Tibet. It was an expedition into untracked regions where they planned to study the religions, languages, customs, and culture of the inhabitants.

Roerich wrote about this first Central Asiatic Expedition in his book Heart of Asia, and he creates for the reader a vivid account of the wonder of the land and its people. However, the images are nowhere as vivid as in the five hundred or so paintings that resulted from the trek. In Kanchenjunga, Sikkim Pass, His Country, The Great Spirit of the Himalayas, and the Banners of the East series, we can see philosophical concepts and ideas giving birth to visual images, and the splendor of Northern India providing the physical setting.

In The Path, the figure of Christ leads the way along a tortuous path through crags and peaks of the Himalayas, a metaphor for the hazardous obstacles confronting the spiritual journeyer. Eastern religious figures and concepts appear in the paintings, important among these being the images of the Lord Maitreya — the Buddhist Messiah, the Kalki-Avatar of the Puranas, Rigden Jyepo of Mongolia, or the White Burkhan of Altai — all of whom are described in legends that link them with the Ruler of Shambhala, who is “destined to appear on earth for the final destruction of the wicked, the renovation of creation and the restoration of purity.”(quoted from The Theosophical Glossary, by H. P. Blavatsky)

The trek was at times arduous. Roerich tells us that thirty-five mountain passes from fourteen to twenty-one thousand feet in elevation were crossed. But these were the challenges he felt born for, believing that the rigor of the mountains helped a man to find courage and develop strength of spirit. And in spite of obstacles, wherever they went the Roerichs’ belief in the essential goodness of life and the spirituality of man was reinforced. Roerich’s Banners of the East series of nineteen paintings depicting the world’s religious teachers, Mohammed, Jesus, Moses, Confucius, and Buddha, and the Indian and Christian saints and sages, was a testimonial to the unity of religious striving and the common roots of man’s faith.

At counterpoint to these themes in Roerich’s painting is the image of Woman and her destined role in the coming era, and we can assume that what Helena Roerich wrote to a friend in 1937 reflects Nicholas’ own point of view: “…woman should realize that she herself contains all forces, and the moment she shakes off the age-old hypnosis of her seemingly lawful subjugation and mental inferiority and occupies herself with a manifold education, she will create in collaboration with man a new and better world… Cosmos affirms the greatness of woman’s creative principle. Woman is a personification of nature, and it is nature that teaches man, not man nature. Therefore, may all women realize the grandeur of their origin, and may they strive for knowledge.” (published in Letters of Helena Roerich 1935-1939, vol. II)

Nicholas Roerich depicted the great female deities in such paintings as She Who Leads, Madonna Laboris, and The Mother of the World. This latter conception, equivalent to the Lakshmi and Kali of India, is one of Roerich’s most inspiring images, rendered with majesty in deep tones of blue and violet. Helena Roerich’s contribution in the life and work of Nicholas cannot be overestimated. Their union could be best described as a lifetime collaboration in fields of mutual endeavor. Her philosophy, comprising a living ethic, was shared by Nicholas and motivated him in his work and his life. At some time in their late years an anniversary approached and he wrote in his diary: “Forty years — no less than forty. On such a long voyage, meeting many storms and dangers from without, together we overcame all obstacles. And obstacles turned into possibilities. I dedicated my books to Helena, my wife, friend, traveling companion, inspirer! Each of these concepts was tested in the fire of life. And in Petersburg, Scandinavia, England, America, and in all Asia we worked, we studied, we broadened our consciousness. Together we created, and not without reason is it said that the work should bear two names — a feminine and a masculine.”

At the end of their major expedition, in 1928, the family settled in the Kullu Valley at an elevation of 6,500 feet in the Himalayan foothills, with a magnificent view of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Here they established their home and the headquarters of the Urusvati Himalayan Research Institute, which was organized to study the results of their expedition, and of those explorations that were yet to come. The Institute’s activities included botanical and ethnological-linguistic studies, and the exploration of archeological sites. Under the direction of their father the two Roerich sons, George and Svetoslav, established a collection of medicinal herbs, and made extensive studies in botany and ancient medical lore, as well as in Tibetan and Chinese pharmacopoeia.

In the following year, on a trip back to New York for the opening of the Roerich Museum’s new premises, Roerich raised an issue that had been close to his heart for many years. Using the Red Cross as an example, he proposed a treaty for the protection of cultural treasures during times of both war and peace — a proposal he had unsuccessfully tried to promote in 1914. In consultation with lawyers versed in international law, he drafted a Pact, and suggested that a flag would be flown over all places under its protection. This flag he called the Banner of Peace. The design of the Banner shows three spheres surrounded by a circle, in magenta color on a white background. Of the many national and individual interpretations of this symbol, the most usual are perhaps those of Religion, Art and Science as aspects of Culture, which is the surrounding circle; or of past, present, and future achievements of humanity guarded within the circle of Eternity. The symbol can be seen in the seal of Tamerlane, in Tibetan, Caucasian, and Scandinavian jewelry, and on Byzantine and Roman artifacts. The image of the Strasbourg Madonna is adorned with it. It can be seen in many of Roerich’s paintings, most notably Madonna Oriflamma, in which Woman is depicted as the carrier and defender of the Banner. In this sign and the motto, Pax Cultura, that accompanies it, is symbolized Roerich’s vision for humanity. As he wrote: “Let us be united — you will ask in what way? You will agree with me: in the easiest way, to create a common and sincere language. Perhaps in Beauty and Knowledge.” Roerich’s efforts to promulgate such a treaty resulted, finally, on April 15, 1935, in the signing by the nations of the Americas — members of the Pan American Union — of The Roerich Pact, in the White House in Washington. This is a treaty still in force. Many individuals, groups, and associations around the world continue to promote awareness of the Pact, the Banner, and their underlying principles.

It is in his Himalayan paintings that one most easily finds evidence of the loftiness of spirit and sense of mission that led Roerich to attempt the tasks he set for himself. In them can be seen the sense of drama, the urgency of a message to send or receive, a traveler to greet, a mission to perform, a path to travel. The towering mountains stand for the spiritual goals that humanity must set for itself. Roerich urges people on to their spiritual destiny and reminds them of their duty to prepare for the New Era in which Rigden Jyepo will gather his army and under the Banner of Light defeat the host of darkness. Roerich the warrior was already armed and mounted; he sought to muster his army for the battle, and bid that their breastplates bear the word “culture.”

The pursuit of refinement and beauty was sacred for Roerich. He believed that although earthly temples and artifacts may perish, the thought that brings them into existence does not die but is part of an eternal stream of consciousness — man’s aspirations nourished by his directed will and by the energy of thought. Finally, he believed that peace on Earth was a prerequisite to planetary survival and the continuing process of spiritual evolution, and he exhorted his fellow man to help achieve that peace by uniting in the common language of Beauty and Knowledge.

Nicholas Roerich died in Kullu on December 13, 1947. His body was cremated and its ashes buried on a slope facing the mountains he loved and portrayed in many of his nearly seven thousand works.

    Nicholas Roerich a man of multi talent , was a Russian painter, writer, archaeologist, theosophist, perceived by some in Russia as an enlightener, philosopher, and so forth. Even though he was a an artist by training and a lawyer but he was more interested in literature. He was a dedicated activist for the cause of preserving art and architecture during times of war. His paintings can be seen in several museums worldwide and had earned several awards for his works. His art collections was amazing which includes spiritual paintings and depictions of Tibet, Lama Tsongkhapa and Buddha Maitreya . Each of the paintings tells us a beautiful story which I loved to see. We are indeed fortunate to see those beautiful paintings from a great artist. Those paintings speaks a thousands words.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing and beautiful paintings.

  2. Stella Cheang on Nov 26, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche, for sharing with us the biography of Nicholas Roerich as well as a selection of his beautiful paintings. The captivating artwork is a representation of the life of a great explorer, philosopher, traveler and spiritualist, And I agree too that the work has a deep sense of soulfulness that goes beyond mere skin deep beauty. They are very enriching in a spiritual sense.

  3. sandra on Feb 26, 2015 at 2:03 am

    Clearly Nicholas was a very intelligent, creative, talented and well- travelled man. I love his paintings- those of the Himalayas look exquisite and very easy to do although I am sure that is not the case. I might share this article with a sister/acquaintance who is interested in art and will study it at university in the new term. I think she’d like it. Thank you Rinpoche for the extensive collection you have compiled here.

    Tashi Delek,
    There is a big Roerich gallery in nagar in Himachal Pradesh ( in between kullu and manali) I am tibetan born and brought up in that region and there is no doubt of Roerich envision and travelogue expressed in his arts.. I always wondered about his paints, drawings of the Himalayan landscape and his journeys of his time..
    I am new to your blog but it gave me lots of informations and I look forward reading me.
    Thank you
    Dolma

  6. Edwin Tan on May 4, 2014 at 3:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing Nicholas Roerich’s artworks.

    They are all vividly painted. He is so talented in all fields and did his best to have the Pact drawn up to protect the Arts and Culture.

    I like how he is so inclined to spirituality and have many of the works done of different religions and portray them so stunningly.

    Thank you.

  7. Irene Lim on Apr 2, 2014 at 6:26 am

    Such exquisite expression of spirituality, experiences, travelogue and architectural all captured through brush and paint in canvas. Through Nicholas Roerich’s paintings, they each tell a story of a subject and from each painting it also revealed the openness, knowledge and intelligence of Nicholas Roerich.

  8. Li Kheng on Mar 31, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Wow, wow, wow!!!

    Powerful knowledge to read about a man of vision who taught us about “cross fertilization” and the benefits of connection of differences harmoniously. Individuals like Roerich prompts to be buck up because we are supposed to the the advanced generation who is reaping the benefits of outer and inner wealth accumulated for us by our forefathers and mothers.

    How could it be that, we, people of the 21st century act with rejection to differences when, 1 century ago, Roerich has already established a pact to promoted connectivity and harmony of religion, culture, tradition and resources?

    This vision of Roerich especially strikes me because it is aligned to the vision of Tsem Rinpoche for Kechara Forest Retreat where Rinpoche intend to build a conscious community based on 7 tenets that include: embrace difference because it enriches us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this mind-opening blog. May more read it and enjoy the message as much as I did!

  9. Ruby Khong on Mar 30, 2014 at 8:40 am

    This is an excerpt that I stumbled upon on http://www.artexpertswebsite.com/pages/artists/roerich.php. Such was Roerich’s and his family’s fascination and interest with the Himalayans and Central Asia, against all odds:

    The Roerichs – together with their son George and six friends – went on the five-year long ‘Roerich American Expedition’ that, in Roerich’s own words: “started from Sikkim through Punjab, Kashmir, Ladakh, Karakorem mountains, Khotan, Kashgar, Qara Shar, Urumchi, Irtysh, Altai Mountains, Oryot region of Mongolia, Central Gobi, Kansu, Tsaidam, Tibet.” with a detour through Siberia to Moscow in 1926. Between Summer 1927 and June 1928 the expedition was thought to be lost, since all contact from them ceased for a year. They had been attacked in Tibet and only the “Superiority of our firearms prevented bloodshed. … In spite of Tibet passports, expedition forcibly stopped by Tibetan authorities”. The Expedition was detained by the government for five months, and forced to live in tents in sub-zero conditions and meagre rations. Five men of the expedition died at this time. In March of 1928 they were allowed to leave Tibet, and trekked south to settle in India, where they founded a research center, the Himalayan Research Institute.

  10. Sean Wang on Mar 29, 2014 at 11:24 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us the brilliant masterpieces by Nicholas Roerich. His art is unique and I value uniquity and individuality. The hues are vibrant with the colours of the times showing strong emotions he had towards Buddhism.

  11. Sharon Ong on Mar 28, 2014 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you for this fantastic post, Rinpoche. Admittedly, I am not well acquainted with Roerich’s works until your post. He has many gorgeous pieces but I really like those pieces that reminds me of Monet’s famous pastel hued masterpieces. I can’t help but wonder if his Mother of the World is his interpretation of Tara or Mother Mary. The fact that he painted her face partially hidden adds to the mystery. I wonder what is Rinpoche’s take on this. With folded hands.

  12. Patsy on Dec 2, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    I love all the paintings! Nicholas Roerich is such a talented painter and he expressed well his thoughts and feelings through all these beautiful and mystical masterpieces!!! Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing.

  13. henry ooi on Dec 2, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    Beautiful and awesome works of art splendidly expressed on art materials.
    Thank you, Rinpoche, for reposting.

  14. Low KHJB on May 12, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.Nicholas Roerich style of art is indeed timeless.He must have spent a lot of time traveling to different continents to understand the world better before developing his creative inspiration to bring life to the canvas.We could see in his creations that he has a tendency to highlight the embodiment of nature and human quest of serenity through religion of various forms.
    His interpretation of Buddhism art is profound and tastefully expressed through an westerner eyes.

  15. Sharon Saw on May 11, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Nicholas Roerich is such a prolific artist… and a spiritual one too. I love his different treatments of different scenes, which are very evocative. Religious art can be so inspiring for people’s faith. I would dearly love to travel and sketch similar scenes one day. It’s been awhile since i did that and never in Asia. The Kiss to the Earth (first variant) reminds me of Kechara Forest Retreat!

  16. Wan Wai Meng on May 2, 2013 at 12:33 am

    The paintings are so alive and beautiful each and everyone one of them, seems like animated as well.

  17. Joy on May 2, 2013 at 12:01 am

    Amazing I looooove all his paintings. I wish I could paint like that!

    Brother, let us abandon

    all that rapidly changes.

    Otherwise we will not have time

    to turn our thoughts to that

    which is changeless for all.

    To the eternal.

    Not only is he an artist that paints, he is also a poet… I do not just see an artist… I see a spiritual artisan who is expressing his spiritual journey, experiences through art, and well as they say… a picture paints a thousand words. His is truly captivating that grows on to you beyond time because it has deep meaning behind it. Nicholas manages to capture the moment of the enchanting sacred mystical land and practices of Tibetan Buddhism. Every single painting tells a different story, environments and energy. Totally adore them!

  18. uncle eddie on Apr 20, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    Nicholas and his wife, Helena were said to be spiritual seekers, using and conveying their great understanding and experiences in their knowledge of the beauty of enchanting arts to promote spirituality. That’s why it can be seen that most of their paintings were featured in hidden treasures in mountains and water, said to be symbolising the search in high places for the truth that is hidden within us. Being great artists, they always create wonderful and beautiful paintings that were thoughts provoking, coupled with a deep sense of mysticism. In them can be seen the deep sense of Drama, the urgency of a message to send or receive a mission to be performed, and a path to be travelled. They believed that peace on earth was a prerequisite to planetary survival and exhorted all fellow beings to help achieve that peace, by “uniting in the common language of Beauty and knowledge.”

  19. Lim Han Nee on Apr 19, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    Nicholas and Helena Roerich were truly the superheroes of Russia in terms of their exploration of religion,mysticism, spirituality and philosophy through art and writing(Helena). I remember having come across Helena’s book on Buddhism and was intrigued that a Russian lady could have written on Buddhism.

    The art of Nicholas Roerich is like a paean of joy, a sacred tribute to spirituality and religion. From Jesus to Buddha, Maitreya, Tsongkhapa, Krishna and Brahmaputra,Confucius and Lao Tze,this pageant of religious figures reflect Nicholas’ belief in the oneness out of this diversity.There appears to be ,however, a distinct focus on Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism.

    His love of mountains, particularly the Himalayas,is seen in the many paintings of mountain scenes in such lovely hues. The eternal spirit seems to dwell in these paintings.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful artwork from Mr. & Ms. Roerich. All the artwork so attracted our eyes, and repeat again and again to view the painting.

    With a great inspiration & open mind they have create this greatest painting ever have.. And it’s show through art & painting it’s another way of spiritual practice, as through the painting can deeply feel their higher spiritual mind they have.

    The painting i love so much is the Mother of the world and Moses, The Leader …so impressive…

  21. Sean Wang on Apr 16, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    I really love Nicholas Roerichs work. The contrasts seem to make his masterpieces out of time and surreal. I like how he likes to paint religious figures and does not just stay with one! He sparked a great milestone in term of influence for the Buddhist path of the west. A true hero of Dharma!

  22. David Lai on Apr 15, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    I love Nicholas Roerich too! I loved how he bathe his artwork with wonderful hues that seems to evoke a different time and place. I love all of his works particularly those of Tibet, its saints and deities because his work render them in a different manner. Its interesting because his discovery of Tibet coincides with the start of the Theosophical Society of Madame Blavatsky and because of her, there was a growing interest in the spiritual traditions of Asia, particularly of Buddhism. Although this marks a remarkable milestone in the West’s discovery of Buddhism. Anyway, the artwork itself is beautiful pieces and I particularly like the March from Shambala, which I found to be a refreshing perspective from the usual 2-D rendition in traditional depiction of a deity-warrior-king

  23. Jace Chong on Apr 14, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing with us the brilliant artworks from Mr. and Mr.s Roerich. The paintings are very very nice!

    I am surprised to read that they have such open mind during that era. They must had a fruitful mind trip after visiting so many places and got to know about different cultures and living.

    The painting that I like the most is Palden Lhamo =)

He then mastered most of the teachings before been a teacher giving teachings on Lamrim, the Yamantaka tantric practice and so forth in the monastery , college which he helped to establish. He was one of those who craved the blocks for printing the first edition of Tsongkhapa‘s collected works.

    The sixty-four yogini temple in Hirapur, Odisha sits on an ancient piece of land once ruled by the old Kalinga kingdom. The site is also a hotbed of various cults and religions that flourished here in ancient times. In fact, Jainism, Buddhism, Shaktaism, Saivaism and later Vaishnavism thrived on these fertile plains for centuries.

    During the golden age that followed after the old Kalinga kingdom was annexed and ruled by various succeeding dynasties, Buddhism and Tantric practice flourished here, and the cult of the yogini evolved as Tantra took hold in these lands. The cult of the Sixty-Four Yoginis was one of these prevailing traditions, and it culminated in the construction of these sacred shrines to the yoginis.

    t is no secret that we humans are slowly killing the planet. We consume too much, recycle too little, create too much waste, and produce way too many carbon emissions. Science and common sense both tell us that unless something drastic is done, we may soon reach a point of no return.

    But is it possible to save the planet and enjoy life? There are clever people who think that it is. As global consumption continues to spiral out of control, there exists a group of extraordinary humans who have taken up the mantle to try and save us all. Motivated by the wish to heal our planet, they have applied their brains and creativity to figure out a way we can maintain our quality of life and our daily routines cheaply, easily and without much disruption. Thanks to their efforts, environmental consciousness is now at an all-time high.

    The Medicine Buddha Fountain in Kechara Forest Retreat has blessed water for everyone. Before the construction of the fountain, Rinpoche had sent some semi-precious stone to Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche and requested these high lamas to bless them. The stones were blessed by Dorje Shugden oracle in trance and hence the stones are highly blessed.

    These stones are placed into the fountain and those stones bless the waters that run through it. Whoever that takes the less water will be blessed and healed. It is very powerful.

    Ensapa Lobsang Döndrup was a Tibetan Buddhist religious leader. He was posthumously recognised as the third Panchen Lama. Ensapa was known to have spent more than 20 years meditating in isolated caves near the Himalayan mountains. When he was a young boy Gyalwa Ensäpa received many visions of Buddha Shakyamuni. Amazing ….he also possessed natural clairvoyance and was an extraordinary young boy. He spent more than twenty years of his life in meditation caves. His collected works comprise two volumes, his commentary on the Six Yogas of Naropa is well-known . He studied Lamrim and philosophical texts, and received instruction on the practices of highest yoga tantras with a number of lamas, particularly from Lharipa Drakpa Dondrub. Later he became a student of Chokyi Dorje and received the teachings on the oral tradition of Tsongkhapa. Beautiful life story of a great master.,…. many miraculous signs have appeared,
    during the cremation of his body.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    The New York Times on Tibetan elections – https://goo.gl/kNsafS

    Its amazing to read how dirty these CTA officials are when it comes to elections and selfish motivations. Shamefully the laughing stock of the world and they still dont know it. Even The Dalai Lama, Nechung and Tseringma berated Lobsang Sangye and Penpa Tsering.. Definitely not fair play on elections.

    The Tibetan Leadership had lied about Dorje Shugden practice on so many aspects and it is not hard to see through their lies when logic is applied. Below are some videos that the speakers had laid out the logic and give us an clear view of what is happening with the Dorje Shugden ban.

    Dorje Shugden was said to be a sectarian deity that only Gelug can worship. However, it is not true at all if one takes the time to investigate the history of Dorje Shugden practice.

    It is a well-known fact that Dorje Shugden has a long history of association and practice within the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism. In fact, Dorje Shugden was first enthroned and propitiated within the Sakya School before becoming a widespread protector practice within the Gelug tradition.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    11 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
