Description

So Rudolf Steiner describes this old Indian scripture 'The Bhagavad Gita'. It tells how in the midst of a fratricidal battle the lofty Krishna appears in spiritual form to the soldier Arjuna revealing the mysteries of universal egohood and the path of yoga. "The highest to which the individual man can soar by training himself and working on himself with wisdom — that is Krishna... In all of earthly evolution there is no Being who could give give the individual human soul so much as Krishna," remarks Steiner. But Steiner also Describes out of his spiritual research how Krishna's one-sided inspiration of the ninner path of the individual was balanced and countered by what Christ brought from outside for all humanity. In impressive pictures Steiner paints the secrets of Krishna's evolutionary sacrifice, his role in the life and work of Jesus and Christ, and the relevance of his teaching for our time.
