Nicholas and Helena Roerich believed in the essential goodness life, love, nature and the spirit of human-kind. They created the ‘Banner of the East’ series reflecting the world’s religious teachers, Jesus, Mohammed, Moses, Confucius, and Buddha, Indian and Christian saints and sages. They shared the unity of religious traditions and the common roots of man’s faith. Together they paved the way for us to embrace and embody this next step in the new paradigm, knowing that woman is a personification of Nature. The veil has been lifted from the eyes of ‘The Mother of the World’ for all to see, know and be one with.
Helena Roerich wrote to a friend in 1937 reflecting 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) ~ So it is. Amen. Amin. Hum. Om. Shanti.
