Bringing The Roerichs Back To Life At The Rubin Museum Of Art


This January, historian and author Andrei Znamenski will be a part of the Rubin Museum of Art’s 2012 lecture series to talk about his new book Red Shambhala: Magic, Prophecy, and Geopolitics in the Heart of Asia.

Red Shambhala is a thrilling, intriguing nonfiction account of the secret occult crusade that occurred during the Bolshevik Revolution. One of the most fascinating stories in the book is that of Nicholas and Helena Roerich and their occult agenda that led them on a journey through Asia, with the goal of creating a Buddhist holy war in Tibet.

This particular chapter of the Roerichs’ history is somewhat contradictory to what most Westerners know about this esoteric couple.  In addition to posing as the Dalai Lama's reincarnation, Nicholas Roerich used his close ties to FDR and Henry Wallace to gain financing for an ultimately doomed trip to Asia.

The details of the event are all below.  In addition to mentioning this event as a calendar item, I would like to suggest a story about Nicholas Roerich’s part in the book, as it paints a wholly new picture of the esoteric painter.  Andrei is available for both an interview and for a discussion and visit at the Roerich Museum.
