For many strangers, Georgi Mirkovich is one of the brightest and most dedicated Bulgarian personalities. He was born in 1825 in a craft family in Sliven. He studied with Sava Dobroplodni, and at the age of twenty-one he went to Russia to study at the Theological Seminary of the city of Kiev.

Between 1851 and 1856, he studied medicine in Montpellier, studying homeopathy extensively. For his actions as a doctor during the cholera epidemic in France, he was awarded a silver medal by Napoleon III himself.

After returning to his native Sliven in 1857, he began to practice medicine. She is a contributor to The Bulgarian Book Magazine and Bulgaria Magazine with editor-in-chief Dragan Tsankov. During 1960 in Constantinople he published "A short methodical Bulgarian grammar", which was extremely helpful in teaching Bulgarian students.

Together with Archimandrite Joseph Sokolski, Deacon Raphael Pop Dobrev (future Bishop Raphael Popov) and Dragan Tsankov, he left for Italy in March 1861. In Rome they were received in an audience with Pope Pius IX, in order to restore the Bulgarian national and canonical hierarchy. There, for his work in this direction, Georgi Mirkovic was awarded the Vatican Gold Medal. Until the end of the 60s, Mirkovic led a private medical practice in various places in Bulgaria, in Bessarabia, taking an active part in the Bulgarian revolutionary movement.

In 1869, he was arrested for his political activities and imprisoned in strict prison in Constantinople. There, according to other convicts, he treated patients with homeopathic remedies in the form of "grains, small, colored like beads". After the end of the Russo-Turkish War, Georgi Mirkovich was released and returned to his homeland. Among the initiators is the establishment of the first Red Cross company in Bulgaria, which was established in Sliven in the same 1878 year.

In 1885, again in his hometown, Dr. Mirkovic's most famous work, the Homeopathic Doctor, was published, explaining and defending the basic principles of homeopathy. On the basis of personal experience, the author compares allopathic and homeopathic therapies, and proves that "the healing homeopathic method has all the benefits that one can claim." Homeopathy cures safely, quickly and most importantly - harmless. Strongly criticized by many, especially fellow physicians, Georgi Mirkovich never abandons the principles of homeopathy and practices it for the rest of his life.

Apart from alternative treatments, Mirkovic is intrigued by unexplained and supernatural phenomena. Thus, between 1891 and 1902, he publishes several magazines: New Light (1891 - 1896), Health (1892 - 1896) and Videlina (1902), in which he publishes articles on spiritualism, clairvoyance, homeopathy, materials on healthy lifestyles, on life force, on sources of diseases, etc. From 1896 to 1900, Georgi Mirkovich is often in Varna and Burgas, where he is an active participant and co-founder of several spiritual circles.

Because of his interest in the supernatural and the inexplicable, in the 1900 year he was invited by Peter Deunov himself to the Master's first spiritual meeting in Varna. Thus, even as early as the 74 years, Mirkovich became one of the closest students to Danov and entered a new world.

On September 29, 1905, Georgi Mirkovich completed his earthly journey. He is buried with outstanding honors and respect by his fellow citizens. His eager desire is to donate all his assets and property to the Sliven Orphanage and his personal library and publications to the local Chitalishte Zora. In his will, he mentions with love the Master as well, recommending that he always obey and follow his advice!
