Knowledge of the Higher Worlds And Its Attainment
by Rudolf Steiner
This is Rudolf Steiner's guide to the seeker on the path of esoteric initiation. He includes much that would be of use to novices of any mystical belief system, and a lot of tantalizing information about the subtle body, higher planes of existence, and the spiritual encounter with the 'Guardians of the Threshold.'
This text was created from the first (1947) edition of this English translation, which has an unrenewed copyright in the US, and is furthermore a translation of a pre-1923 book, which makes it public domain in the US. The copyrights on the Steiner writings are somewhat complicated. This is the first book by Steiner which we have been able to create a public domain text of. We hope to add more in the future, legalities permitting.
