Présentation de l'éditeur

The Kabbalah is divided into three branches—the theoretical, the meditative, and the practical. While many books, both in Hebrew and English, have explored the theoretical Kabbalah, virtually nothing has been published regarding the meditative methods of these schools. This is the first book published in any language that reveals the methodology of the Kabbalists and stresses the meditative techniques that were essential to their discipline. Kaplan offers a lucid presentation of the mantras, mandalas, and other devices used by these schools, as well as a penetrating interpretation of their significance in light of contemporary meditative research.

In addition, Meditation and Kabbalah presents relevant portions of such meditative texts as the Greater Hekhalot (textbook of the Merkava School), the writings of Abraham Abulafia, Joseph Gikatalia's Gates of Holiness, Gate of the Holy Spirit (textbook of the Lurianic School), and the important meditative hasidic classics. Also investigated is the intriguing possibility, suggested by the Zohar, that the meditative methods of the East might have been derived from the mystical techniques of the prophets.

Biographie de l'auteur

Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan was born in New York City and was educated in The Torah Voda'as and Mir Yeshivot in Brooklyn. After years of study at Jerusalem's Mir Yeshiva, he was ordained by some of Israel's foremost rabbinic authorities. He also earned a master's degree in physics and was listed in Who's Who in Physics in the United States. In the course of a writing career spanning only twelve years, Rabbi Kaplan earned a reputation as one of the most effective, persuasive, scholarly, and prolific exponents of Judaism in the English language. He died on January 28, 1983, at the age of 48.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A crucial study of meditation 19 décembre 2001
Par A. J. Valasek - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a very good book for those that are competent in the basic terminology of Kabbalah. If you're not, you will struggle with this text. This book gives the reader a very broad appreciation for the art of meditation through a broad compilation of the various Kabbalistic literature that is unaccesible to most people and nearly impossible to taste if your language is only English. This book covers all of the major schools and their most noticeable differences and provides enough "meat" to contemplate the various methods of meditation themselves. This book is not an expositon on the Bible, but it is biblicaly based although not readily apparent. If you're looking for your first book on meditation, don't start here, this isn't a beginners text. Instead try Kaplan's other book, "Jewish Meditation." However, if you're ready to take a deeper look and wan't to gain a broader perspective on the various methods, this is an excellent text.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Based on authentic Kabbalah from Jewish tradition 19 juillet 1999
Par Rabbi Yonassan Gershom - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is the best, most Jewishly-authentic book on kabbalah available in English today. Neither a pop "new age" book nor a contemporary attempt to "update" Judaism, it was written by a practicing orthodox rabbi who knew what he was talkng about! Rabbi Kaplan's clear explanations and lucid translations of important source texts were among the first to appear in English, making this almost-forgotten meditation tradition more accessible once more. Should be on the shelf of every serious Jewish seeker.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No rubbish, only the "purest gold" translated 25 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Rabbi Kaplan, Z"L, as ever, does a great job by inheriting the world the first translation of the almost forgotten methods of meditation used by the Talmudic sages, Chasidim, R. Abulafia, R. Luria, Baal Shem Tov, etc. They all seem dangerous (if you understand Kabbalah fully and are guided by an excellent teacher, there will be no problem) but are a good reference on the evolution and diversification of these techniques to attain revelation and ecstasy. 100% recommendable, easy to read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Valuable contribution 6 novembre 2004
Par Neal J. Pollock - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The late Aryeh Kaplan was a Rabbi, scholar, and Kabbalist. In addition to his valuable and readable commentaries on Sefer Yetzirah and Sefer Bahir, he wrote three books on meditation. The other two are: "Meditation and the Bible" and "Jewish Meditation." From a practical perspective, "Jewish Meditation" is far and away the best, however, reading the other two provides one with a more inclusive, theoretical background and context within which to practice. This volume is quite valuable and a contribution to both meditation per se and to Kabbalah. I'd put it in the middle of the 3 in value if forced to choose. It's rare to find an author who is both scholar and practitioner, so Kaplan's books on Kabbalah are particularly valuable and accessible to the reader. Of course, they are not introductory books--of which there are innumerable versions in bookstores. It helps to have a solid background in the basics before tackling Kaplan's texts. But it isn't essential--especially for "Jewish Meditation." I would place them as intermediate level texts--more or less on a par with the average Ze'v ben Shimon Halevi texts. Kaplan's are more scholarly in nature, however. They are appropriate to both the serious student and the serious practitioner of Kabbalah.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pure and very complex 19 février 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Areyh Kaplan is the single most athoritative writer on the Kabbalah today. Although I must include Zev ben Shimon Halevi in that pantheon. Both of these authors bring much need light onto a subject that is now very "chic." Not so Kaplan, a true scholar. But it is not for beginners. Althought I must say that the knowledge in the Kabbalah is not for beginners, period. There was a reason that both the Cordoverian and Lurianic schools insisted that the study of the Kabbalah should be started at the age of 40. And this was centuries ago when life expectancy was much less than it is today. I must warn you that this very dense and speaks directly to the "real" Kabbalah, and not all of the western appropriated magicians of the turn of the century. If you are sincere in studying Kabbalah and are willing to put in the time and effort, this is a must!
