The Calendar of the Soul CompilationMercury Press
This compilation of translations of Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul by Brigitte Knaack whose own new translation is included. Rudolf Steiner’s German verses are presented side by side with six different translations and one paraphrase, each representing one facet from the many faceted original. Mirroring the passage of the sun between the equinoxes, from Easter to Michaelmas and back, The Calendar of the Soul is composed of corresponding verses, revealing the polarity of the earth’s rhythm of breathing out and breathing in. May the light of the Soul Calendar’s true language, which is neither German nor English, but the language of the soul, shine through the translations of these 52 mantrams and enable those who contemplate them to carry them across into the individual language of their own souls.
