All their activities were dedicated to Russia. ‘Each of us four has gained enough knowledge and experience in his or her own field,’ wrote Nicholas Roerich in his essay “Quarter of a Century”. ‘But who did we work for? Was it for some strangers? No, it was for our dear Russian nation that we went through the thick and thin. We often managed to bring the true understanding of the Russian strivings and achievements. Not for a second did we deviate from the Russian ways. It was for the Russian people that we worked, bringing them both knowledge and achievements.’
This publication features the essays by Nicholas Roerich, who had been interested in history and archaeology since his youth, and excerpts from Helena Roerich’s letters, full of lofty patriotism and care for her compatriots. The album part features the reproductions of paintings by Nicholas Roerich, reconstructing the atmosphere of the ancient times and picturing the monuments of ancient Russian architecture and the elevated images of the hermits who left a significant trace in the history of Russian culture.

The book by L. Shaposhnikova, ‘The Master’s Universe’, closes her trilogy ‘The Great Journey’ about the genius artist and thinker Nicholas Roerich and his family. The reader will learn about the historical roots of the new system of cognition and about the forming of cosmic thinking. It was Russia that gave the ground for the new cosmic conscience or, how it’s often called, ‘the cosmism’. The great Russian scientists such as V. Vernadsky, K. Tsiolkovsky, A. Chizhevsky, P. Florensky and the eminent philosophers of the so-called ‘Silver Age’ such as S. Bulgakov, S. and E. Trubetskoy and others were the architects of the new pattern of thinking. Nicholas and Helena Roerich played the most significant part in this evolutionary process, having created the philosophy of Cosmic Reality called ‘The Living Ethics’ together with a group of Eastern Masters. This philosophy laid the foundation for the cosmic thinking and its new system of cognition. ‘The Master’s Universe’ tells about the main peculiarities of this philosophy and defines its role in the cosmic evolution of the mankind. The Living Ethics is the most important achievement of the Roerichs.
In 1990, the Roerich’s younger son Svetoslav transferred the priceless heritage of his parents to Russia, represented by the International Centre of the Roerichs. This provided the basis for the new Museum by name of Nicholas Roerich, Moscow, which is now the main centre for the Roerich researches and for the comprehension of the processes evolving inside the new cosmic thinking.
The abundantly illustrated book is written in an accessible fashion and will certainly be interesting to the widest public, both Russian and international.

In 1934-1935 Nicholas Roerich organized a large-scale scientific expedition to Northern China and Inner Mongolia. In this period he managed to write over 200 essays for ‘Pages of a Diary’ that compound the first book of this edition. No matter which topics Nicholas Roerich touches upon (and the scope of these topics is truly immense), it was the spiritual and moral development of the humankind and the connection of human life with the Great Cosmic Laws that remained his main interest. In his essays he dwells on the past, present and future of the humankind. The unique philosophic oeuvre left by Nicholas Roerich is a source of true spirituality for our contemporaries.
The second book of ‘Pages of a Diary’ features the essays written between 1936 and 1941, covering the events of the turbulent pre-war times and the beginning of the Second World War. They reflect the external policy of the leading world powers, the struggle to preserve the cultural monuments, and the support and development of the movement to adopt the Roerich Pact.
Many of the essays relate to the outstanding scientists, writers, artists, musicians, political and public figures.
The third volume of the book ‘Pages of a Diary’ by N.K. Roerich features the essays and letters from the last years of his life (1942 – 1947). Written in the grim years of the Second World War and the post-war devastation, they bear a call for the cultural unity of the humankind and the service for the sake of Homeland, just as they teach us to perceive the Eternal and the True.
The texts included in ‘Pages of a Diary’ are reprinted from the archival materials provided by the International Centre of the Roerichs.
