Publisher's Summary

Basic Concepts in Kabbalah is a gentle and wise introduction to the concepts and significance of Kabbalah. The audiobook presents ideas and principles in a comfortable manner, allowing the listener to feel at ease with ideas that can seem intimidating if presented in a more demanding fashion. Brief but intimate, the book encourages a second and third listening and further exploration into Kabbalah. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Kabbalah but these lessons are unified by a spirit that communicates directly to the listener's soul. A brief but powerful beacon of learning, the book has subtle force and is the ideal introduction to the art and science of Kabbalah.

The concepts presented in the book have their roots in what is universally recognized as the authentic disclosure of Kabbalah, the Sulam Commentary on the Zohar, written in the 1930s by Yehuda Ashlag. Author Laitman is the genuine heir to these concepts, as they were personally passed on to him through years of study with Ashlag's eldest son and successor. This relationship is significant, as the listener is assured of having access to the true Kabbalah, not simply a contemporary writer's personal interpretations and "glossing over" of what are deeply complex lessons and ideas.

Rav Michael Laitman, Ph.D., is the authentic heir to the genuine Kabbalah and this unique book offers these concepts to listeners of all backgrounds. Easy to listen to, impossible to forget, Basic Concepts in Kabbalah is the ideal introduction to the spiritual power and wisdom that is Kabbalah.

    "Rabbi, I am in your debt forever"
    Where does Basic Concepts in Kabbalah rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was the best 3 hours I have EVER spent listening to a teacher - any teacher.Anytime Rabbi is willing to share his wisdom and learning I will be content at his fee:at once lost to this world and introduced and welcomed into the next. In the back of my mind I knew to be a Rabbi was for the few, the gifted, but I was still amazed by the scholarship. Amazed and I could not bear to waste a minute doing anything else but to listen. I walked away like a man bloated by a feast. Dazed and delighted.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Basic Concepts in Kabbalah?

    When Rabbi told me what was promised- and more! Why. He could say Why!


    Have you listened to any of Tony Kosinec’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A beautiful rendition. The words difficult to pronounce, but seemingly effortless to Mr. Kosinec. He must be a very, very learned man.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! I could not bear to waste time doing anything else. I absorbed it all like a sponge. Clearly and easily. I was like an honored guest at a rich man's feast .I had never seen such as was on the table for me and I could not resist the invitation to take my fill.


    Any additional comments?

    I will never be able to re-pay your kindness, Rabbi. I do hope you take delight in my joy of receiving.

    "Disappointing"

    This is not an academic or lay explanation of Kabbala. Rather the author tries bring the reader inside. He couches mysticism in scientific terms, and then tries to make logical arguments that "follow" from his postulates. It didn't work for me. I found it difficult to follow his arguments; it all seemed like pseudo-scientific nonsense. Still the overall message of ego-less love is valid and interesting, so I didn't can the book entirely.

    "Couldn't make it all the way through..."

    I tried to listen all the way through this one... The narrator did an excellent job. However, the sentence structure and words are very hard to follow, it's sounds like he simply published his dissertation.

    I kept waiting for him to get-real, and come down-to-earth, but he went on and on with complicated sentences and scientific words... I gave up.

    All I got out of it was the same thing Jesus said: The golden rule is to love your neighbor as your self.

    He also mentioned that we have no will to make choices and that what we see and live is just an illusion, all controlled by the Creator; or something like that.
