Kabbalah states that the Creator created all worlds simultaneously, including our world. Writings from the last century explain that we are the first generation to be able to use Kabbalah in our world. However, in order to further advance our understanding of the wisdom of Kaballah, and use this knowledge appropriately, we need to lift our mind's eye above the horizon of the material world. Kabbalah gives us everything we need to clarify our perception of reality, and extend ourselves beyond the standard borders and limitations of our everyday lives.
So sit back and let the wisdom of Kabbalah wash over you. Encountering the perfection of infinity in such a compelling manner is an experience that cannot be described with words; it must be felt by each individual, each at their own pace. This comprehensive guide to spiritual discovery is intended for all those who seek true meaning in life that is far beyond the ordinary.
A scientist by profession, Rabbi Laitman arrived in Israel in 1974 at the age of 27. Completely secular at the time, his search for spirituality eventually brought him to study under Rabbi Baruch Ashlag, the son of Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag (Baal HaSulam). He served as the personal assistant to Rabbi Baruch Ashlag from 1979 to 1991, and upon his rabbi's passing, was handed down personal transcripts from one of the greatest Kabbalists of our time. Having studied Kabbalah for over 30 years, Rabbi Laitman presents a scientific approach to spiritual evolvement that is based on the writings of Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag and other great Kabbalists throughout the generations. An eloquent writer and public speaker, his words inspire individuals around the world to accelerate the spirituality of mankind through the study of Kabbalah.

This introduction to Kabbalah helps the listener focus on the essential elements of kabbalistic philosophy and inquiry. The unencumbered listener should find a definite connections between Kabbalistic teaching and most all other spiritual paths of mystical inquiry and experience. Of special significance is an ongoing discussion of the relationship between mankind, God, faith, reason, enlightenment and the path of drawing nearer to God.
I was more enlightened by this book than any other book of this calibur at this time in my life. I am on my own soul searching journey to search for answers to my own innner questions on the subject of meaning of life. I also am a firm beleiver in the Bible and that we are created by God, I live on Faith and this book awakened somthing in me. I understand this concept, and this book was so well written. I recommend it to anyone searching for a different perspective of this topic. Enjoy listening and enlight your soul. (54 yr old Fenmale/ Scorpio)
This book is written about the 'heart' or 'spirit' of Kabbalistic writings/religion. If you are interested in Kabbalah or you have some of the books like Sephir Yetzirah or Basir or something -- you should obtain this book to help you understand more of the writings, the tenants and the foundations of this branch of Judaism.
Very hard to listen to. Make sure that you have a lot of focused time to devote to it.
I've listened this book now more than ten times. it gets to the root of spirituality in a way I have experienced bit did not really understand. puts words to the process God has been doing to me. I enjoy getting a glimpse of the form and function of kabbalah
It states straight forward that this is the sort of material that you will need to revisit and that any questions that arise are good. As an introduction to Kabbalistic thinking, this is just what a beginning student needs to hear.
This is the sort of audio book best taken in smaller chunks, so the listener can absorb the message and the intention of the writing.
I've read and listened this book a few times and every time there is greater depth to this profound wisdom. I highly recommend it.
No. It's repetitious and pompous.
I have no idea.
Tony is a good narrator; he cannot be faulted. But Laitman's text just drones on and on, endlessly repetitious, and goes nowhere. I was unable to listen to the whole thing.
Yes. Initially it was inspiring to listen to, but then after listening to several hours, it was clearly moving into fanatical waters. I had to back out. In future I will avoid being sucked into this kind of endless black hole of pseudo-spirituality.
Yes. I suspect my review will be deleted, since only positive reviews of Laitman's work are permitted to survive on Audible and Amazon.
