Journal of Urusvati Himalayan Research Institute

Journal of Urusvati Himalayan Research Institute of Roerich Museum.

This anual academic journal was founded by George Roerich in the Roerich’s research institute in the Indian Himalayas at Kullu Nagar in 1931. The journal published on research activities and findings of the institute, and can thus be seen as an expression of a scientific dimension of the eccentric Roerich family’s activities, encompassing elements of esoterism, sectarianism, and scientificity. Its main language was English, including Tibetan-language textual passages at times. Only three issues were produced. It is nevertheless significant, as it is one of the first tibetological journals ever published.
