Folder Ring of the Nibelungen Explained Course

Ring of the Nibelungen ExplainedDiscover the meaning of the esoteric mysteries and spiritual symbols hidden in The Ring of the Nibelungen, the famous set of operas by Richard Wagner, based on the Nordic mythology.

“It is evident by all means and with complete meridian clarity that Wagner was a great Initiate [of the secret knowledge], an insightful esotericist, an authentic Illuminated One… [...] It seems that he had scrutinized very ancient religious scriptures…” - Samael Aun Weor, Parsifal Unveiled

We strongly recommend that you watch the entire Ring cycle before you study this course, and do your best to see one that is authentic to Wagner’s directions. There are regular performances all around the world, and seeing these operas live is a special experience to have in life. If this is not possible for you, there are numerous recordings available on DVD that you can purchase or rent, or even borrow from a local library.

This course was originally given live on Gnostic Radio.

"In order to pass to a superior Level of Being, it is necessary to cease being what one is. We need to not be what we are. If we continue being what we are, we will never pass to a superior Level of Being."
