ANTHROPOSOPHIC MANTRIC MEDITATIONS

An Approach to Our Life and Destiny in the Cosmos

 

This volume brings together some of the most significant mantras bequeathed to us by Rudolf Steiner—mantras that, when set together in the form presented here, invoke a comprehensive whole relating far-reaching developments in our Cosmos to our experience of Nature’s yearly cycle as well as the daily cycle of Sleep and Waking.

With the appearance of this volume, those familiar with the Anthroposophical world-view will find fresh opportunity to re-think the great connections that Rudolf Steiner so faithfully opened to our imaginations. In the meantime, a specific Meditation Course is proposed based on these mantras that offers to open up the spheres of the Cosmos, Nature, and the Daily cycle to a comprehensive and systematic practice. The form this volume takes builds on the author’s personal experience based on years of living with the mantras and how these came together for him.

"a most interesting work, which can serve as an inspiration to meditate on a deeper level, particularly with regard to taking up the various time rhythms elaborated upon"

             {Robert Powell, author of Cultivating Inner Radiance and the Body of Immortality}
