One Hundred Years of Agni Yoga
Agni Yoga is the term used to define the spiritual teaching received by the Roerich couple, in particular by Helena after the first two books. As Anton Malyguine writes in his book La fenice russa (The Russian Phoenix, published by Nuova Era, 2018), the Roerich family was in London in March 1920. During a walk in Hyde Park, Elena saw two particularly tall men, who wore the uniform of the British Indian colonial troops. They were unusually handsome and looked so long at Helena, she found it disconcerting. Later they revealed themselves to be members of the White Brotherhood. One of them being the Master who would transmit the teaching.
Initially, the transmission was by the method of mediumistic sessions, very popular at that time. After some time, this method was completely abandoned. In one paragraph of the book Agni Yoga, we can find the different ways and stages of transmission: “At first you were both shown how the basic laws of matter work ... These were performed not for amusement, but for the purpose of seeking serious knowledge. After that you were shown the astral world ... Having finished with the semi-material world, we then approached cosmic clairvoyance and clairaudience.” (AY 145)
Helena Roerich’s diaries, written in Russian, begin in March 1920, during her stay in London. They represent the source of all the eighteen books of Agni Yoga, compiled from 1924 to 1938. The first pages of the diaries are reported in the quoted book by A. Malyguine.
Living Ethics and Agni Yoga
The Community of Living Ethics bases its activity as a center for the evolution of human consciousness on the knowledge and application of the Teaching of Agni Yoga. With will and dedication we continually try to transform the inspirations and ideas that derive from higher models of life into projects and initiatives which imitate these higher models and make them concrete in the fields of human activity.
In the Community there is a School of Agni Yoga, under the management of the Italian Society of Agni Yoga (SIAY), regulated by rhythms and modalities of participation in continuous improvement. Here, members of the Community carry out a multi-year course of approach, assimilation and deepening in group of teaching Agni Yoga, through reading, connecting this with emerging life themes, enhancement learning and the ability to apply to everyday life.
