Publisher's Summary

Here is a practical and convenient way to connect to the meaning of life, comprehend what we are doing here and what our purpose is in this world. The audio version of Attaining the Worlds Beyond allows you to absorb the ultimate fulfillment of moving spiritual content in plain English wherever you happen to be. The poignant narration takes you on a journey that enlightens the mind, invigorates the heart, and moves you to the depths of your soul. In the words of Rabbi Michael Laitman, "It is beyond human comprehension to understand the essence of such spiritual qualities as total altruism and love. This is for the simple reason that human beings cannot comprehend how such feelings can exist at all, as everyone seemingly requires an incentive to perform any act; without some personal gain, people are not prepared to extend themselves. That is why a quality such as altruism can only be imparted to a person from Above, and only those who have experienced it can understand it."

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.

Comprehensive and well read

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.

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS (what is my soul)

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)

An endless drone

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. It's repetitious and pompous.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I have no idea.

Did Tony Kosinec do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

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.

Did Attaining the Worlds Beyond inspire you to do anything?

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.

Any additional comments?

Yes. I suspect my review will be deleted, since only positive reviews of Laitman's work are permitted to survive on Audible and Amazon.

Great Listen for an Advancing Kabbalah Student

What made the experience of listening to Attaining the Worlds Beyond the most enjoyable?

The reader has a voice that is erudite, authoritative, a professorial which makes for a great guide through the vast landscape of Kabbalah.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Attaining the Worlds Beyond?

There were several chapters I had to replay because they were so full of information that I wanted to make sure I completely grasped the concepts. I have read many Kabbalah books but this one I have come back to again and again.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book filled me with an enormous sense of purpose and a better understanding of how to spiritually connect with the Creator in a more meaningful way than my previous feeble attempts.

Any additional comments?

Listen to this book again and again until you see the Light.

Wonderful book on Kabbalah

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.
