Book Description

Rudolf Steiner's fundamental handbook for spiritual and personal development has grown more modern as time has passed, although his methods remain clearly distinguishable from the many others now in circulation. For one thing, Steiner's path of spiritual growth is based on the clarity of thought normally associated with scientific research. Rather than denying clear thinking, his aim is to extend it beyond its present limitations. Secondly, Steiner recognizes - as all genuine disciplines always have - that the path to spiritual experience is an arduous and dangerous one, calling for self-control in thought, word and deed. Human beings comprise a unity, and we cannot develop knowledge without a corresponding development in feeling and will. Rudolf Steiner foretold that humanity would begin to experience a longing for forms of experience that transcended intellectual, materialistic thinking. More than one hundred years after the first publication of this book in 1904, there are countless means to achieve such experience, such as eastern meditation, channelling, remote viewing and astral projection. In addition, there has been a huge growth in people reporting extrasensory perceptions of various kinds, such as near-death experiences and meetings with angels. In this context, Steiner's key spiritual workbook - reproduced here in the classic Osmond/Davy translation - is needed more than ever, given its unique, precise instructions for inner training, its protective exercises, and its indications for grounding and centring. Knowledge of the Higher Worlds begins with the conditions required for personal development, and guides us through the stages of initiation, its practical aspects and its effects

About the Author

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', meaning 'wisdom of the human being'. As a highly developed seer, he based his work on direct knowledge and perception of spiritual dimensions. He initiated a modern and universal 'science of spirit', accessible to anyone willing to exercise clear and unprejudiced thinking. spacer spacer From his spiritual investigations Steiner provided suggestions for the renewal of many activities, including education (both general and special), agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. Today there are thousands of schools, clinics, farms and other organizations involved in practical work based on his principles. His many published works feature his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development. Steiner wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars The mastery of Steiner 13 Dec. 2011
By Higgsa
Format:Paperback
Rudolph Steiner needs no accolades from a mere mortal like me. However suffice it to say that this is an amazing book that explores concepts sorely needed in these days of selfishness and greed. This is no easy read but for the student of the occult a must read over and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best translation 13 Aug. 2009
By Jammie
Format:Paperback
There are a number of other editions of this book available on Amazon. They are all facsimiles of ancient editions, or OCR scans of very old translations. This edition is authorized by Rudolf Steiner's estate in Switzerland, and is a decent translation. Beware of sub-standard imitations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 10 Mar. 2013
By carrie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Highly readable. Deep, yet practical path to inner development and attainment of the invisible world behind the physical sense world. Not doctrinaire but leaves the reader free and helps one to understand what it means to be human.
