Product Description


The greatest contemporary Kabbalists, Rav Yehuda Ashlag, and his son and successor, Rav Baruch Ashlag provide an eye-opening answers to life's most fundamental question: 'What is the meaning of my life?' Based on their interpretations of "The Book of Zohar", and "The Tree of Life", we can now learn how to benefit from the wisdom of Kabbalah on a day-to-day basis. In addition to authentic texts by these great Kabbalists, this book offers illustrations that accurately depict the evolution of the Upper Worlds as Kabbalists experience them, as well as several helpful essays to enhance our understanding of the texts. Rav Michael Laitman, Ph.D., Rav Baruch Ashlag's personal assistant and prime student, compiled all the texts a Kabbalah student would need to attain the spiritual worlds. In his daily lessons, Rav Laitman bases his teaching on these inspiring texts, thus helping novices and veterans alike to better understand the spiritual path we undertake on our fascinating journey to the Higher Realms. If you truly seek the meaning of life, your heart will lead you through the writings of these great Kabbalists, who wrote them from their hearts to yours. Through their words, you will discover life's essence and power, and your own eternal existence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A One Book Wonder 3 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Forget about all other works out there. In our humble English Language, this is the deepest journey you will be blessed with in your development of the wisdom and understanding of The Kabbalah. Rabbi Ashlag almost one of our forgotten sages, but thanks to the work of Bnei Baruch and Rav Laitman, we, the world have been blessed with this truly holy work of Rabbi Ashlag. It is 860 pages long, take at least 860 hours reading this book the first time. You will plunge into a world of infinity that you will never want to stop reading. Read, Read and Re-Read this truly blessed book. Amen

This is not light reading. Hmmm, actually it is reading about "light". Lets start again!

It is a dedicated study book. It is big. It is technical.

Start with one (or a handful!) of Rav Laitman's many other good introductory books and videos if you are a beginner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Massive Collection of Texts for Self or Group Study 28 Mar 2009
By Daniel Isaiah - Published on Amazon.com
THE GOOD: Although made for use with their website and online videos (all free), B'nei Baruch's collection of Kabbalistic texts can be studied individually or with a group. The texts are all translated from Hebrew and are otherwise difficult-to-impossible to find in English. At Amazon's price, it's a steal!

THE NOT-SO-GOOD: Some have criticized B'nei Baruch's translations in the past as leaving out key parts to promote their own agenda. I do not know Hebrew, so I can offer no personal experience. There have also been accusations and suspicions that B'nei Baruch is a cult, and there are certainly some oddities within the group. Again, though, I cannot personally verify this to be true--but as with any spiritual group, it is important to do background checks and be comfortable with what one is getting into.

OTHER NOTES: If you are a beginner, you should probably hold off on getting this textbook. Once you have progressed to the point where you are ready for more challenging concepts, get this book. If you are a student of B'nei Baruch, this textbook is obviously a must have. If you are a student of the Kabbalah Centre, this textbook will do you no good--the teachings are not compatible, not matter what the Kabbalah Centre claims.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Collection of Kabbalist Articles 25 May 2009
By Peter E. Latona - Published on Amazon.com
If you are a student of Dr. Michael Laitman, then you must get this book. Not only is Kabbalah for the Students one of the most used references for Dr. Laitman's free Internet classes, but also serves as a reservoir for finding our most treasured articles in one convenient location. Any student of Kabbalah will find this a valuable addition to their home library. Kabbalah for the Student is the teachings of authentic Kabbalah passed down through thousands of years.

If you are new to Kabbalah, I would first recommend other books by Dr. Laitman such as "Idiots Guide to Kabbalah",; "Attaining the Worlds Beyond"; Kabbalah for Beginners".

5.0 out of 5 stars For the Serious Student 23 Mar 2010
By James B. Mcclaren - Published on Amazon.com
There are many books available today, particularly those of Dr. Michael Laitman, that do an excellent job of describing to the layman what Kabbalah is about. Kabbalah for the Student is not one of them. It is a text book only for the serious student of Kabbalah. And, as such, is indispensable for advancement along the spiritual path. It overflows with the wisdom found in the writings of Yehuda Ashlag (Baal Hasulam) and Baruch Ashlag (The Rabash) - the greatest Kabbalists of our time. This is the main book used by the students of Bnei Baruch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Treasure 17 Mar 2010
By Patricia Breton - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a true treasure of authentic Kabbalah wisdom. The bulk of the articles are written by Rav Yehuda Ashlag and his son Rav Baruch Ashlag and they are arranged under five major headings but can be read and studied in any order. I have a personal preference for studying the material starting at the beginning of the book and working my way through it. I found that my understanding of Kabbalistic concepts was continuously reinforced and expanded upon as I ventured further into this incredible book. I can literally lose all awareness of my external surroundings and daily concerns while engaged in these writings.

To assist with the deeper articles, at the back of the book is an extensive Glossary and over 40 pages of detailed diagrams provided as references to many of the more advanced Kabbalistic concepts. This book is an invaluable source of authentic Kabbalistic writings and as such is an integral component of on-line Kabbalah courses offered by Bnei Baruch.

For anyone interested in studying The Zohar (the seminal book of authentic Kabbalistic wisdom), Kabbalah for the Student is a must. This book will provide you with a solid foundaiton of Kabbalistic terminology and concepts and is the key to unlocking the timeless wisdom found in The Zohar.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must for the Bnei Baruch Student 31 Oct 2010
By Edward J. Barton - Published on Amazon.com
This massive collections of teachings, articles, extracts and diagrams will be invaluable to the BB student. Many of the online classes now refer to and use this textbook for their teaching. The book is waaaay too dense for the pure beginner, and many of Rav Laitman's other books like Kabbalah Revealed or Kabbalah for the Beginner will be better choices if you are just getting started.

The layout of the book could be better - with many of the diagrams and definitions relegated to appendices, and not cross-referenced in the texts. The book, stand alone, without the class around it - especially the technical study - is so dense as to be nearly inpenetrable. So - the book is useful if you are a BB student, and has limited use if not.
