Rudolf Steiner and Sri Aurobindo might be two of the very few individuals who knew what we all want to know—what will happen to each of us when we die?

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), creator of the approach to both Waldorf education and biodynamic agriculture, lectured frequently on human life after death. By his account, beginning with its physical death, the enduring core of the human individual absorbs the essential experiences of its life through a series of spiritual transformations. At the end of this process this spiritual core, with its capacities, limitations, and aspirations, is born to another life.

Similarly, Sri Aurobindo, the foremost Indian spiritual teacher of the first half of the Twentieth Century, explained that the human individual begins life with capacities and fundamental (usually unconscious) intentions influenced by a previous life. Steiner and Aurobindo agree that each soul reincarnates in order advance both their individual evolution and the evolution of the culture into which they are born.
