Michael Laitman, in The Zohar, has taken the Ashlag commentary and provided us with an in-depth understanding of the first "book" in The Book of Zohar with 'The Introduction of the Book of Zohar.'
This seminal Kabbalistic text is written in a form of "code" and is difficult to understand without assistance from a Kabbalist. Laitman explains in current English the various terms, names, titles, and abbreviations that appear throughout The Book of Zohar. He then provides an English translation from the original Aramaic to each paragraph followed by a blending of Ashlag's commentary on the text and his own detailed explanations before moving on to the next paragraph.
The Zohar is an incredible gift to humanity at this point in our collective evolution and Laitman has opened the doors wide for us to access the wisdom of Kabbalah. Laitman provides us with clear understandings of concepts occurring throughout The Book of Zohar, such as Partzufim, Sefirot, Worlds, perceived Lights, concealment, revelation, Kelim, reception, bestowal and many more.
The Zohar is a book to be savored slowly, each taste of it deepening the desire for more. This book is an essential addition to the library of any serious student of Kabbalah.
What can be said about this book is that it is presented in such a way that if we truly have the desire to read it with the intention of discovering its wisdom, Rav Laitman will guide us through its depths and mysteries by making additional notations on Baal HaSulam's commentary. In the Prologue, we are given information about the author of the Zohar, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and about how the writing of the Zohar came into our world. Knowing this sets the stage for the actual wisdom of the Zohar presented to us in this book. In addition, there is a list of abbreviations and explanations that is situated before the text of the Zohar begins, giving us another tool we can use to discover this wisdom.
This is a book that we can use on our own to read and contemplate. It lends itself to doing just that, as each chapter is a wonderful story with so many layers to explore. If we read it with the intention of discovery and not understanding, we can receive its gift.
A beautiful book that has been given to us in English so that we might come to know why it is truly a book for our times.
The Zohar is a book to be relished as a precious opening into the spiritual worlds for each of us as we learn and explore the many layers of wisdom and apply them to our lives.
I have been seeking an authentic perspective on Kabbalah, and Dr. Michael Laitman offers this and makes study easy by explaining the unfamiliar words and expressions that appear in the book. He includes translations of the Aramaic and his own explanations throughout the text. All of which serves to make this ancient text comprehensible to everyone at any stage of learning.
