The Service of the Community of Living Ethics in India includes the Himalayan Centre of Agni Yoga in Kalimpong and the Darjeeling Goodwill Centre in Darjeeling, both in West Bengal.

The first one is located in Crookety, the house where Helena Roerich spent the last years of her life. Crookety House provides a base for residential activities linked to thematic seminars and travel experiences, as well as individual accommodation for guests who wish to contact the energy of this place. DGC carries out cultural and educational activities for the local population, organized together with Indian and international co-workers and NGO’s.

The activities are managed through the Himalayan Institute of Goodwill and Living Ethics (HIGLE), a Trust established in India, which operates in cooperation with another local Trust, the Darjeeling Goodwill Animal Shelter.

Experience with us the Himalayan Centre of Agni Yoga, Crookety House, Kalimpong

Helena Roerich was the focal point for anchoring the Agni Yoga Teaching on the Planet. This Teaching was transmitted through her and thanks to her work it was started to be spread around.

Thus, Crookety represents the place of her final work in its physical manifestation. It is a magnetic place, where those who dedicate themselves to Agni Yoga Teaching may find inspiration and a guiding light on their path of inner research towards the Subtle and the Fiery World.

We imagine a future where many Agni Yoga students from all over the world will be meeting at the Himalayan Centre of Agni Yoga to study and work together in the sacred light of Kanchenjunga, the Mountain of Five treasures.

Crookety is open for those individuals and groups who wish to experience a community life, based on the principles and study of Agni Yoga.
