The Bhagavad Gita and the Epistles of Paul
GA 142

The Western reader should not be discouraged by the long preparation before the Epistles are reached or by the intricacies of the old Oriental philosophy at the beginning of the lectures. It is most important to unite the two lines of thought and teaching; and the student who is patient with the first lectures will be correspondingly rewarded in the stupendous revelation opened out, to him at the close. This short course of lectures is, without exaggeration, an occult or spiritual development in itself. It was the first course given to the new Anthroposophical Society after the separation from the Adyar or Indian section of Theosophy, and well marks a great step taken towards the real union of East and West.
