Calendar of the Soul

ST. JOHN'S TIDE

Northern Hemisphere
Week 12

The radiant beauty of the world
Compels my inmost soul to free
God-given powers of my nature
That they may soar into the cosmos,
To take wing from myself
And trustingly to seek myself
In cosmic light and cosmic warmth.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 38

The spirit child within my soul
I feel freed of enchantment.
In heart-high gladness has
The holy cosmic Word engendered
The heavenly fruit of hope,
Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
Out of my being's godly roots.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

The Occult Significance of the Bhagavad Gita
GA 146

Steiner reveals the results of his spiritual scientific research into the Bhagavad Gita. With extensive details and insights he shows how the inner path inspired by the lofty Krishna was balanced and completed by what Christ brought to humanity.

This lecture series was translated from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer, from the German edition published with the title, Die okkulten Grundlagen der Bhagavad Gita (Vol. 146 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961).

This translation has been authorized for the western hemisphere by agreement with the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland. Translated by George and Mary Adams, with emendations by Doris M. Bugby.
