Roerich served as AMORC’s legate for the Himalayas at the request of H. Spencer Lewis. In 1924 he began his expedition in search of Shambhala, the mythical spiritual kingdom of certain Buddhist traditions and Shangri-La, where all inhabitants are said to be enlightened. Roerich said that a path to Shambala is a path of consciousness, and it can only be obtained through an open mind.
Roerich was told by a Lama that the Great Shambhala, the mighty heavenly domain, was beyond the ocean and had nothing to do with our earth. In the Far North, one could discern the resplendent rays of Shambhala. Roerich however, asked about the earthly Shambala, seen by certain lamas, and connected with the one the heavenly one.
The Lama said there is much which should not be revealed before the destined date as this may cause the greatest harm and catastrophes, as we reveal our thoughts through sound which projects into space.
The Lama said Shambhala has infinite inhabitants, many preparing new forces and achievements for humanity.
Anyone who understands the thoughts of people is silent. Walking silently in the desert toward their unknown goal are simple folk in simple garments. Their garment is significant. Half-closed eyes hide keen glances. The power comes from an indiscernible direction.
