Work Arising out of Anthroposophy

Waldorf (Rudolf Steiner) Education:
Dr. Rudolf Steiner was not in the habit of preaching, or giving instructions of his own accord. Like a true master of esoteric knowledge, Dr. Steiner always waited to be asked. His many new impulses arising out of Anthroposophy have always been in response to questions put to him by his many friends and students. When someone approached him with a specific wish, or to ask for advice, he gave the answer that would lead to a new initiative. One such request came from Emil Molt, a friend of Rudolf Steiner. This led to the starting of the WALDORF (RUDOLF STEINER) SCHOOL movement.

A checklist for the qualification and recognition of a Waldorf/Rudolf Steiner School in India.
- Compiled by Aban Bana
1. The school in question should work as a "Waldorf-inspired/oriented" school for a minimum period of two years, before it can apply for full Waldorf recognition.
2. The Waldorf-inspired school should make sure that its teachers get regular in-service training as well as training at recognised Waldorf education seminars, workshops and courses.
3. If a school is founded by a minimum of three trained Waldorf teachers, it may carry the "Waldorf" name from the very beginning.
4. Waldorf schools are non-profit institutions.
5. The school seeking recognition should apply to Jyotsna Patnaik, Indian representative for the Hague Circle.
6. The class teacher should be prepared to teach the pupils from Class One through to Class Seven.
7. Check on Class One readiness of pupils as indicated.
8. The complete Waldorf curriculum, modified to suit local needs, and covering all recommended subjects, should be followed by all teachers.
9. The day begins with a two-hour Main Lesson, in which a subject is taught in blocks of three or four weeks by the class teacher.
10. It continues with other subjects appropriate for the class, taught by subject teachers or even the class teacher.
11. The methodology has to be child-centered.
12. All festivals should be celebrated in an appropriate way as India is a multi-cultural, multi-religious land.
13. Every Thursday the teachers have a structured faculty meeting, which includes study, artistic activity and an agenda to serve the smooth running of the school.
14. There have to be regular teacher-parent meetings for all classes and also sessions for inducting parents into Waldorf education.
15. Home visits (to the homes of the pupils) by the class teacher have to be made on a regular basis.
16. At the end of the year the teachers have to write a report, which includes a birthday verse, for each individual pupil.
17. Once the school has been running as a PROPER Waldorf/Rudolf Steiner school for a minimum period of two years, it can form a “College of Teachers”.
18. “Meditatively Acquired Study of Man” and “Republican Academies” are two books which the College of Teachers can read together.
19. The members of the College of Teachers are responsible for delegating activities like fund-raising, informing the general public and looking for a venue in an ethical way.
20. Teachers need to have a sound knowledge of Anthroposophy, and to deepen their practice of meditations given by Rudolf Steiner for Waldorf teachers.

The Essential Nature And Task Of Rudolf Steiner (Waldorf) Schools

One of the most frequently criticized aspects of conventional schooling in India is that it is not child-oriented, but rather goal-oriented. Children are made to learn the three R’s at a ridiculously young age, and the passing of exams at the end of each school year seems to have become the main consideration.

Rudolf Steiner (Waldorf) Education

In the year 1907, Dr. Rudolf Steiner gave a lecture entitled “The Education of the Child from a Spiritual-Scientific viewpoint”, which was based upon a true understanding of child-development in the light of Anthroposophy. This lecture was the foundation of a new impulse in child-education. This eventually led to the formation of Rudolf Steiner Schools, which are also known as Waldorf Schools worldwide. The first free Waldorf School was inaugurated in Stuttgart, Germany, in September 1919. Its founder was Emil Molt, owner of the Waldorf Astoria cigarette factory, hence the name.

Anthroposophical Activity In India

Dr. Rudolf Steiner has given the world a new meaning in life. Through his Anthroposophy, many people's lives have changed for the better. In India, the land of Rishis and Munis, where spirituality is an every day occurrence and philosophical discussions are a way of life, the Light of Anthroposophy permeates the will of the people, guiding them into practical and meaningful activity. India has always welcomed new ideas of a spiritual nature: A NO BHADRAH KRATAVO YANTU VISHVATAH (Let noble thoughts approach us from all directions).
