Through Sina Fosdicks’s diaries, which begin in 1922 and run through 1934, we are transported back in time to the days when the Roerichs sought to establish the Master Institute of United Arts and the Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York City. It is also when they ventured into the lands of Central Asia to follow the vision of building the “New Country.” Against a backdrop of movers and shakers in high society and international players on the political stage and in the arts, readers will experience the joys, the difficulties, and the betrayals faced by these Servers of Light, and become privy to experiences of the Supermundane and of the Hierarchy of Light.
Through the eyes of a most beloved coworker of the Roerichs, My Teachers gives rare glimpses into the lives of two extraordinary people whose influence then and now continues to touch spiritual students worldwide—through the Agni Yoga series of books, their individual writings, and the sublime artwork of a master painter and a Teacher of the Ageless Wisdom who taught that Beauty through culture and the development of right human relations is the answer to humanity’s ills.
“If not for the Roerichs, then none of our work, the school, Corona Mundi, or the museum would ever exist. N.K. is not only a great world-class painter [and] not only a great sage but a Brother of the White Brotherhood and a great spirit, who has given us a chance to participate in the Great Mystery, the Great Plan. We received this treasure of spirit, knowledge, and power through the Roerichs, who are disciples, children of M., carrying out His will on Earth.”
Sina Fosdick would go on to become the head of the Agni Yoga Society, the Director the Master Institute of United Arts, and the Director of the Nicholas Roerich Museum, a position she held till her passing in 1983.
