That is why the problems of the preservation of our civilization, search for new ethical guidelines, overcoming of the cultural crisis, are becoming more topical for our contemporaries. In this connection the ideas of Russian cosmism are quite in consonant to our time. Realization of the overall interconnections and recognition of a human being as part of the integral system of the world give us a chance to get over the global problems of our epoch... Nowadays we completely understand the truth of one of the main ideas by Nicholas Roerich connected with the recognition of the priority of culture in the development of the mankind”.

In his letter addressed to Ms L.V. Shaposhnikova, Director General of the Museum named after Nicholas Roerich, Mr A.M.

At the time being we need this thinking for the further progress of the mankind...”

Paintings by N. Roerich as well as the “Living Ethics” - the philosophy of cosmic reality which was given through the Roerichs by the Spiritual Masters of the East, speak about meta-science – the unity of visible and invisible, the unity of human beings and Cosmos and their connection with Eternity. The Banner of Peace is the symbol on the evolutionary way of the mankind.
