Abstract:This article is devoted to the notion of beauty in N.K. Roerich’s 1930 work Shambhala. It examines the text’s implicit and explicit lexicalization of the term, identifying the multiple contexts which confer upon it atypical complexity and an absolute dimension. This aspect, developed through poetic prose, inscribes the text within the literary Sublime and at the same time highlights the hypnotic potential of literary expression. It is concluded that Roerich uses language to suggest heightened consciousness.
