According to Kabbalah the entire bible is a code. Inside the biblical story of Moses and the Red Sea, the 72 names of god are encoded and concealed. Yehuda Berg, breaks down the Hebrew text and then reveals the code, showing how these names can be applied to our ordinary daily lives, as the ultimate tool for achieving physical and emotional well being.

After reading through this and other books, I can see why people so urgently need to feel there is a God in their life. Many people feel trapped and alone in a very crowded, busy world and they desperately want someone to listen to them.
This book gives you good reason to want to believe, because if this guy God can do all this book says he can, then GREAT!
If "he" did provide us with the power inside ourselves to change this hopeless world of ours, then I say "Give it a try, even if you don't think there is a God".
Have a go at mass meditation; try to stop the wars, the disease, the poverty and the sadness! Try it, have a go at opening the door to your soul.
This book is crammed full with useful ways in which we can attempt to change our lives; it's a wonderful self-help manual. It's full of advice, understanding and beautiful sentiment, it doesn't force anything on the reader, it let's you decide how much or how little you wish to take in.
This is the sort of book that other "religions" should be handing out.
It's not a foot in the door, in your face, ordering about in the name of God type of thing.
The writer doesn't place blame on the reader, instead he understandingly suggests that we are all products of the stresses and strains of a modern day life.
I think Rabbi Yehuda Berg is quite cool.
The book is printed in a funky way, full of bright colours (I assume it's an attempt to drag a very old faith into a modern world). The page and text colours don't always work, some pages are actually hard to read.Read more ›
Followers of Kabbalah believe that each of the 72 names of G-d relates specifically to an area of your life. (The names were hidden in code in the Torah). It is said that Hebrew / Aramaic was the orginal language spoken by all of mankind (until the Tower of Babel) and whilst we cannot understand the 'names', our souls recognize the letters. (Kabbalah believes strongly in re-incarnation.) Therefore, by meditating on the names, you soul connects with the 'light' and dependant on the name you 'scanned', depends on the improvement you will make in your life.
This book is essentially a 'tool' to enable you to make the connection.
The book is presented beautifully, more like a fashionable coffee table book than a 'spiritual' tool. Some people will have problems with this, but the reality is, this is the 21st Century, and its no doubt a necesesity~in this day and age. How do you want it presented?
A introduction to Kabbalah is included, an explanation of what you are doing, a description of each letter (one name per page) and what to 'think' about whilst meditating on each letter. (Which is important to me as I have difificulty relaxing my mind and trying not to plan my shopping list whilst trying!)
But.... does it actually work?
Well, I am a student of Kabbalah, and I do scan the letters on a regualr basis. Since doing so, I have certainly become more succesful in work, more positive, and happier. Is it as a direct result of this book? I dont know. Is it a result of Kabbalah - yes, definately. Thats either because it's real, or simply because the tools I have learnt have made me a more positive person, like self-help. (What I believe isn't important here)
Whatever reason YOU think, either way its a good thing. So what have you got to lose!!!
This is a paradox for me. This is an important book (which is why I'm reviewing it) but I'm also disturbed by the economic intentions of its producers.
This is a glossy and contemporary coffee-table book. The subject matter, however, shouldn't be presented in a way that would lead anyone to think this is some kind of fad.
I think its main producer (not author)makes several interesting and true statements about how one should approach these Names. One point he unashamedly makes is that it is for everyone (regardless of one's philosophical and behavioral disposition.) I absolutely disagree as have so many credible Kabbalists throughout the past (estimated) 1800 years.
The reason for this is that these "Names" are attached to gates, "forces" that are attracted when one employs the necessary visualization and contemplative techniques. To be sure, this book presupposes that one has some familiarity with the three different types of meditation: visualization, contemplative and verbal.
There's also the interpretation of a few of the Names that is quite controversial. There are varying beliefs about the afterlife within Judaism and especially with the topic of communing with the dead. When this book first came out several years ago, I was one of the first ones to purchase it. I sent Rabbi Berg and The Kabbalah Center an email questioning the interpretation of a Name that allows for necromancy. Their curt response left a lot to be desired.
Apart from these concerns, these are, in fact, the Names that Kabbalists have maintained are the Names for Creation. Many of the Names use the same letters, and are only distinguished by permutation and the expectation that one brings.
This is not a book for everyone. One must attempt to live an upstanding life or the appeals may result in the influences from the Other Side.
