Rudolf Steinerâ€™s science of spiritâ€”occult wisdomâ€”is presented here in a way that is readily understood by the modern reader through five lectures and one essay presented to the general public. In keeping with all of Steinerâ€™s writings, this book in line with the Western esoteric tradition and the great esotericists of the West. With a short introduction on Steinerâ€™s life, the themes are developed in modern terms. Steiner shows that immortality is not just a continuation of life after death, but also involves a continuation of life in the spiritual world through reincarnation in the physical world. He shows how we can begin to understand the mysteries of reincarnation and immortality by developing our higher faculties of imagination, inspiration, and intuition. Steiner also explores the mysteries of the human being, human evolution, the nature of Anthroposophy, and social issues. This small book is an excellent introduction to Anthroposophy and the Western concepts of reincarnation and karma.
