    This is an informative book that as a someone new to the topic needed time for me to absorb each section I feel I gained a lot from reading it and will return to the text as my understanding of Kabbalah grows

    Fantastic intellectual book on mysticism in this tradition Hard to put down so fascinating compared with most such

    This is a fine book not easy to read but it really does get to the essence of Kabbalah If you can read between the lines Brian Lancaster is offering something unusual a book which actually enacts what Kabbalah is a method of returning to and knowing the source of our being He is Jewish and has no truck with the kind of Kabbalah which Madonna has publicised There are some very interesting exercises in this book though I wonder if Mr Lancaster has left out some of the details because if you did these exercises properly they might actually work The chapters on creation and the mysticism of language are particularly fine

    I was doing a University course in the Psychology of Kabbalah and this book helped me immensely along the way It is very thorough yet easy to read unlike other academic books


  5. says:

    Well packed and on time

    Although the book is very comprehensive the style doesn't make it enjoyable reading It feels like a geeky scientific manual rather than a spiritual book

    I've read many introductory books on Kabbalah but this is by far the most comprehensive It is one of the few books that emphasises the central role of the Hebrew letters and language the 'Loshon Kodesh' or Holy Speech which are thought to have been the tools of creation itselfThere are clear explanations of difficult subject matters such as the Tree of Life the Sefirot Divine attributes and some fascinating material on the famous Golem of Prague who legend has it was animated and brought to life using the Divine names Clearly Professor Lancaster is writing not simply from a scholarly perspective but also has first hand experience of some of the meditative techniues describedA remarkable achievement which deserves to be a spiritual bestseller
