This 58 minute video titled ” Shambhala. Nicholas Roerich and the Tibetan Buddhism by Guido Ferrari, 2012″ is 10 years old. It is a documentary about the links between Nicholas Roerich, Tibetan Buddhism and Shambhala.
Much of the material is based on interviewing Daniel Entin, who was the Director of the Roerich Museum in New York (Daniel passed away in 2017).
It includes many of the paintings in full size. There are also interviews with Buddhist teachers, but unfortunately, the sound is not of a good quality.
At one stage, Daniel Entin reveals that the Roerich Expedition in 1927 set out from Ulan Bator to travel through the Gobi Desert, all the way to Tibet. They apparently made camp in the Tangla Mountains in the Gobi, and stayed there for two weeks. Unusually, the Roerichs built a huge Buddhist Stupa there; then they disppeared into the white Tangla mountains for several days. Daniel Entin hints about the story that the Roerichs were summoned into the mountains for initiatory purposes.
