3.0 out of 5 stars KABBALAH FOR BEGINNERS 4 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perhaps it's because I'm new to this subject and therefore much is unfamiliar to me but I didn't find this an easy read and found its style quite disjointed. I'm sad to say but it is a book that I'm finding difficult to get through but am determined to persist and, who knows, I may well be richly rewarded! Amazon's service was excellent as usual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kabbalah for Beginners 6 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I look at the world today, I can only see that most people seem to be self-centred, and want more than their fair share of things at the expense of others. Every where I look there seems to be violance and wars. To try to make some sense of things in the world today I have turned to Kabbalah. I found that this book answered many of my questions about why the world is going the way it is. R. Le Maitre

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and extraordinary 28 Feb 2009
By N. DeMerchant - Published on
For anyone seeking meaning in their lives or anyone who feels that have yet to find a purpose to their existence I hope they are fortunate enough to find any book written by Michael Laitman. I have found that while they all speak of the same thing; they all have something new to offer the reader. The first part of this book speaks about the origin and history of Kabbalah which may peak the interest of any history buff or anyone interested in understanding what Kabbalah says about the creation of mankind. As with any book (and this one is less than 200 pages) the historical perspective feels incomplete, but it provides enough information to lead the reader on their own quest for information.

I've found that few people know or have any working understanding of what Kabbalah is about and what they do know is not what Laitman or his organization, Bnei Baruch, teaches. The second part of this book is appropriately named "the gist." There is no mention of red strings and evil eyes as we've heard about in trendy magazines and on television. It does provide exactly what it suggests; a general description of what Kabbalah is all about. The rest of the book deals with "Reality" and "Correction" and also provides a section with common questions and answers. Any serious student of Kabbalah will tell you that further reading and study materials are necessary, but this is a good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kabbalah for Beginners 24 Aug 2009
By Kristi Alam - Published on
Kabbalah for Beginners reminds us that at one time man knew that there was only one force governing this world. Man lived in spirituality and was closer to nature in his daily life. This book explains that over the course of generations, we've evolved. Our egos evolved and have grown to a point where we no longer feel connected to this governing force. As we have declined in spirituality, we have lost that knowledge and we experience suffering because of it. This book, with the question and answer section as well as the chapter describing great Kabbalists of the past, helps us regain that knowledge by teaching us the fundamental steps needed in order to get back to spirituality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Introduction to Authentic Kabbalah 11 May 2009
By Peter E. Latona - Published on
As the title implies, this is a perfect place to begin your exploration of authentic Kabbalah. The book quickly points out that anyone can study Kabbalah. It does not matter what your age, gender or religion might be. The study of Kabbalah is for anyone who has burning questions such as "What is the meaning of my life?" "What is the purpose of my existence?" If you have such questions, you are in the right place.

Although this book is a very quick read, it does present the essential ingredients of this path and provide you with a blue print for moving forward. It is a terrific introduction!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kabbalah for Beginners 3 Aug 2008
By William Jackson - Published on
This book, Kabbalah for Beginners by Michael Laitman, is a well written, interesting, and challenging book for those interested in Kabbalah. While the subject of Kabbalah is somewhat daunting, this book took the concepts and made them accessible while still explaining them in full. I would heartily recommend this book as a place to begin for anyone who is in the least bit interested in this ancient wisdom. Kabbalah is often related with the Old Testament, but it is much more - able to shed light on our current situation and point to a way out of the world's trouble. For the individaul seeker, it begins to answer the question we may have all asked "what is my life for, why am I on earth?".

5.0 out of 5 stars An important book for anyone learning about Kabbalah 6 Dec 2010
By S. Stroud - Published on
Kabbalah for Beginners is a powerful little book based on the lectures of Dr. Michael Laitman.
It speaks of spiritual perspectives and roots of our behavior and nature's laws.
It took me thru all the stages needed to answer the most basic questions of why - why am I here - why now - like this? I found The Dark Before the Dawn (part 4 ch. 6) most fitting for our time. I bookmarked the section to read and read again as events unfold daily. It's that useful for me. The subjects covered in appendix 1 are so full of inspiration it could be a book in itself. The wisdom in Kabbalah for Beginners has presented all the information, background and solutions to enlighten and uplift the mind and spirit for anyone who reads it. I think this is an important book for anyone who is looking for a sound basis in Kabbalah.
