by: Rudolf Steiner

In his teachings on the Lord's Prayer, Rudolf Steiner penetrates the esoteric meanings of a prayer that stands at the heart of Christianity, relating its seven petitions to the seven spiritual and physical bodies of the human being. He also discusses the difference between prayer and meditation, and shows how true prayer is selfless in nature. Rudolf Steiner affirms the power of the prayer given by Jesus Christ himself, and encourages us to begin to understand it at deeper levels. Such an understanding, he explains, is now necessary for humanity's further development. The Lord's Prayer: An Esoteric Study also features an introduction by Judith von Halle, whose work is valued for her experiential knowledge of the Lord's Prayer and the events of Christ's life. 85pp, 136mm x 215mm, Paperback, 2007
