Top Customer Reviews
There 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 techniques described.
A remarkable achievement, which deserves to be a spiritual bestseller.

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.Published on 16 Oct. 2014 by Marcin Zasada
