9780940262836: The Rose of the World

From the translator's introduction:

"In picking up this book, you are about to embark on a fascinating journey. It is a journey to places where, according to the author, many of us have already been but about which we have forgotten. It is also a journey within, into that psychological space where our ideas and beliefs about God, spirituality, and religion reside. During both journeys, we are likely to encounter wonder and recognition, skepticism and acceptance, rejection and admiration, confusion and long-sought understanding. For some, this journey will be the start of a much larger one; for some it is but one more leg of a journey undertaken earlier; in any case, The Rose of the World is not a final destination."
Completed in 1959, hidden from the Soviet secret police for twenty years, The Rose of the World was first made public through excerpts in the magazine Novy Mir in 1989. The Rose of the World is a unique and poetic cosmological treatise, passionately written out of personal spiritual experience. It offers a prophetic call for the spiritual reunification of all people and an open and harmonious relationship among the great world religions. For Daniel Andreev, The Rose of the world is a spiritual flower whose roots are in heaven; each petal is a unique image of the great world religions and cultures, and the whole flower is their joint co-creation with God.

Lindisfarne Books is proud to publish the first English translation of this masterpiece of contemporary Russian spiritual literature, a work that belongs to Russian religious thought in the tradition of Vladimir Soloviev, and to the West in the tradition of Dante and Blake—truly a work for the twenty-first century.

About the Author:

Daniel Andreev (1906-1959) was born in Berlin. His father was the well-known Russian writer Leonid Andreev. His mother Alexandra Veligorsky died during childbirth. Daniel's father, overcome with grief, gave up Andreev to Alexandra's sister Elizabeth Dobrov, who lived in Moscow. It was a critical event in Daniel Andreev's life, for in contrast to many of the Russian intelligentsia at the time, the maintained its Russian Orthodox faith. Daniel's childhood included contact with persons as his godfather Maxim Gorky. Daniel was conscripted as a noncombatant in the Soviet Army in 1942, and after the war he returned to writing fiction and poetry. He was arrested in 1947, along with his wife and many of his relatives and friends, and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison, while his wife received twenty-five years of labor camp. All of previous writing was destroyed. With the rise of Khrushchev, Andreev's case was reviwed and his sentence reduced to ten years. He was released to his waiting wife in 1957, his health ruined following a heart attack in prison. While in prison, he had written the first drafts of The Rose of the World and Russian Gods (a collection of poetry), as well as The Iron Mystery, a play in verse. Andreev spent the last two years of his life finishing his work on these works. Andreev's wife Alla, realizing the negative reception the books would get from the Soviet authorities, hid them until the mid-seventies, but didn't publish them until Gorbachev and glasnost. The first edition of The Rose of the World (100,000 copies) quickly sold out, and since then several editions have been equally popular in Russia.

Extract from the Foreword by the author's wife, Alla Andreeva:

Humanity’s long history knows the type of creative personality we may call “the spiritual visionary.” The most famous people of such a creative type in the West are Dante and Swedenborg. Daniel Andreev was likewise such an artist. He was not a member of any “school.” The states of special vision that had been conferred upon him since his early teens and that grew in prison into the sustained and brilliant light of transphysical knowledge were a gift of the Forces of Light. This is a rare gift, it is true, yet it is one that is occasionally encountered.

Prayer—and, before his arrest, church—was the only thing that helped the author attain the states that formed the foundation for writing The Rose of the World. At the beginning of the book, he recounts that one of the first times he awoke to a living consciousness of the world of Light was in a church, during the acathistus of St. Seraphim of Sarov, whom he held in particular reverence all his life.

He called the kind of knowledge of the world practiced by spiritual visionaries “transphysical knowledge.” His personal spiritual experience helped him form a comprehensive picture of the universe. That experience informed his work. While in prison, Andreev wrote drafts for his three main books: The Rose of the World, The Iron Mystery, and Russian Gods.

In The Rose of the World, Andreev states his main ideas in detail in prose. The Iron Mystery and Russian Gods express the same ideas in poetry.

For Andreev, the universe is many layered. The plane inhabited by humanity, Enrof, in Andreev’s terms, is the middle plane. Above stretch the shining Worlds of Enlightenment, while the dark Worlds of Retribution oppose them from below. All religious cosmologies contain a structure of the universe of this kind: for instance, the Vale of Life, Hell, and Paradise in Christianity; Midgard, Niffleheim, and Asgard of Scandinavian mythology; and the Seven Heavens of Islam. Andreev’s Worlds of Enlightenment and Retribution develop the same structure.

Each of the worlds described by Andreev has its own name and purpose. For example, one of the worlds of Light, Iroln, is the abode of the immortal monads of humanity. Monads are made by the Creator, and the evil of the world does not touch them. The entire system of the planes comprising the many-layered world of each planet is called a Bramfatura. The Bramfatura of the Earth is called Shadanakar.

Every nation creates its own culture, which is different from other cultures. Here Andreev analyzes two notions that are closely connected with each other: the supranation and the meta-culture. The latter at once embraces the culture created by the nation on Earth, touches upon the lower planes connected with the demons of state systems, and blossoms in the Heavenly Countries or Zatomis that shine over each nation. These Heavenly Countries are free from evil and they never perish, even when the mundane reflection of the Zatomis that we experience as the culture of a particular nation dies on the Earth.

Thus, there is a shining Heavenly country being built over Russia—Heavenly Russia, Holy Russia. After physical death, the righteous—saints, heroes, and completely unknown people—ascend there in order to continue their labors for the glory of God.

The life of the Universe is the continuing struggle of the Powers of Light with the Powers of Evil and Darkness, who are allied with the being who was once the First Angel and rebelled against God and is now building his dark Universe. Evil is a phenomenon that has no roots in the Creator and is doomed. This is the cardinal difference between Andreev’s concept and Manichaeism. This struggle between light and dark is now the very essence of life. Consciously or unconsciously, in all our deeds, thought, and actions, we all participate in this opposition of Good and Evil.
