3.0 out of 5 stars Unmet Expectations 16 July 2011
I started this book with eager anticipation for a clear and concise list of Kabbalah's basic concepts. While there is a chapter towards the end of the book devoted specifically to this, I found the mix of simple language and complex concepts used throughout the book didn't really meet the needs of either the beginner to Kabbalah studies or the advanced student. While the language was simplified for beginners, the concepts and terminology were not adequately addressed to provide a solid understanding to a beginner. On the other hand, the concepts familiar to advanced students were presented in such a basic manner that meaningful nuances were not available to the reader at all. Overall, my expectations based on the title were not met, leaving me with a sense of disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expanding your Inner Vision 7 July 2009
By Peter E. Latona - Published on
Although on the surface the title might imply that this is a book only for beginners, I would disagree. It is certainly very appropriate for beginners as it serves to introduce us to the basic concepts in Kabbalah as stated. However, by reading this book over and over it will do more than just that. This book is all about contemplating spiritual terms and thereby expanding our inner vision...our consciousness. There is a spiritual structure that is ever present around us and it is up to our efforts to learn how to see, feel and experience these hidden worlds. Kabbalah is all about attracting the Light that corrects and this book attracts much Light.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Work 9 Aug 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I got the audiobook version of this amazing work and I have to say it is one of my new favorites. Its not so much about the Kabbalah itself as about how to approach the Kabbalah. It covers some of the basic concepts you need to know to start studying the Kabbalah, the attitude, the intent and so on. Although the tree of life and the sephirot are discussed, the student is primarily readied to start a serious lifelong study of the Kabbalah and begin the work of spiritual development.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is the book for beginner and not so beginner in study of Kabbalah 11 May 2009
By S. Stroud - Published on
As a beginner in the study of Kabbalah this book meant so much to me. When I moved to more advanced study the concepts stayed with me assisting understanding of spiritual terms and encouraging contemplation of the wisdom of Kabbalah. The Basic Concepts in Kabbalah begins with the beautiful and powerful poem, The Tree of Life, setting the tone for the entire book. In the introduction I saw a depiction of my condition as a part of the stark situation humanity finds itself in, but there also followed a description of the way to resolve each issue that stands between man and the Upper Worlds. The foundation of Kabbalah is explained through the perception, purpose and giving of Kabbalah, these chapters were particularly useful in getting started with my study. If I were to choose the most inspiring, uplifting part of the book it would be the chapter AfterWord to the Zohar. It offered me an understanding and concise description of attaining adhesion with the Creator, just what that means and how to go about arriving at the closest place or state to the Creator that can be obtained. Near the end of the book is the section on key concepts, this is a beautifully enlightening list of things that is in itself an education in Kabbalah. It is, and will be, a reference for me in my study of Kabbalah.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction 12 Jun 2010
By Edward J. Barton - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a good introduction to the Basic Concepts of Kabbalah as taught by Bnei Baruch. The language is as simple as possible, and no simpler. Rav Laitman discusses the purpose and method of Kabbalah, as well as summarizes some of the key concepts from the works of the Ari, Rashbi, Baal HaSulam and Rabash in a way that the new student can understand. There is also a very useful glossary of terms in the chapter entitled "Key Concepts". A good addition to your library if you are a Kabbalah student.
