Nicholas Roerich was an artist, writer, philosopher and most importantly an occultist. He and his wife Helena were devoted believers of Theosophy, an esoteric spiritual practice based on the idea that a group of ‘Masters’ would revive an ancient eastern philosophy to unite all religions. This became the impetus behind their journey throughout Asia to find the fabled city of Shambhala.
Roerich was also said to have been given a piece of the Chintamani Stone, embarking on a quest to return it to the holy city.
Cintāmaṇi (Sanskrit; Devanagari: चिन्तामणि) also spelled as Chintamani (or the Chintamani Stone) is a wish-fulfilling jewel within both Hindu and Buddhist traditions, said by some to be the equivalent of the philosopher's stone in Western alchemy.
How he came into possession of this stone is questionable and possibly even fabricated, but some believe he received it from the League of Nations after it failed to establish a peaceful, new world order. Why it was given to Roerich is up for debate, but his multiple quests to Shambhala were backed by both the U.S. and Russian governments.
He is said to have possessed the stone. He was also considered a guru to our 33rd Vice President under FDR (Franklin D. Roosevelt), Henry Wallace. FDR and Henry Wallace provided federal funding for his trip to Shambhala
According to the more esoteric stories of the Chintamani Stone, this substance was brought to Earth from the Sirius star system as a gift from an alien civilization. It’s interesting that the stone’s origin comes from Sirius, considering that the Dogon tribe in Africa is also said to have been visited by a people from Sirius, a star which they refer to as the Eye of the Universe. These beings are said to have kept tabs on the Chintamani, assuring that it stayed in the possession of important world leaders, such as Genghis Khan and King Solomon. It was thought to have been kept, at one point, in the Ark of the Covenant, also under King Solomon’s possession. Some even believe it to be the sacred stone of the Kaaba in Mecca, that is so highly revered in Islam.
The true nature of the Roerich’s trips was certainly mired in the global hegemonic struggle, but Nicholas Roerich’s relationship with Henry Wallace, then Vice President of the U.S., is one of the most intriguing aspects of the story. In the 1920s, Wallace was a follower of Roerich’s Theosophical views and even referred to him as his Guru. He was also a Freemason, along with FDR, believing that the two would usher in a new world order headed by the United Sates.
Both FDR and Wallace were 32-degree masons, with FDR being the 32nd president and Wallace assuming he would become the 33rd president. He was also the 33rd vice president. Wallace proposed to FDR that the freemason symbol of the all-seeing eye above a pyramid, with the inscription Novus Ordo Seclorum, be printed on currency as a symbol of their one-world-order aspirations. The all-seeing eye, or Eye of Providence, had already been a symbol the founding fathers incorporated into the great seal of the United States, which many believe to be an early sign of the intent of a new world order.
The relationship between Wallace and Roerich, which led to the funding of Roerich’s second journey to Shambhala, was inspired by Wallace’s early infatuation with his Theosophical teachings. One particular correspondence references the Chintamani Stone and may hint at its assumed power in instating a new world order. Wallace is said to have written to Roerich saying, “and I have thought of the admonition ‘Await the Stone.’ We await the Stone and we welcome you again to this glorious land of destiny.”
