The Bhagavad Gita and the Epistles of St. Paul

Die Bhagavad Gita und die Paulusbriefe

Five lectures, Cologne 28-31 December 1912, 1 January 1913 (Cycle 25)


In this cycle of lectures Rudolf Steiner shows the fundamental importance of Christianity for an understanding of the oriental wisdom teachings. Thus he contrasts the Bhagavad Gita, as the flowering of the three great currents of Indian spirituality: Veda, Yoga and Sankhya philosophy, with the emerging Christianity, as it becomes visible in the Pauline Epistles as the germ of a future stage of human development.
