    Amazingly Scientific

    Introduction to the book of ZoharThis is an amazing book that scientifically reveals what has been hidden for thousands of years. The information in this book was presented by Kabbalist Michael Laitman who through years of a teaching lineage learned from Rabash, son of Baal HaSulam, the Ari and the list goes on. Complete with graphs, charts, and a unique narrative by Dr. Laitman, this book goes in to intricate detail of what Kabbalah is all about and most importantly, how to begin and stay on a path towards spiritual fulfillment. You only need to have asked yourself, one question: "What is the meaning of my life?" All you need is the desire and the book will help kick start you on a true Kabalistic path.

    Fantastic!!!

    Rav Laitman takes one of the most significant texts by Rav Y. Ashlag 'Ba'al HaSulam', gives the original Hebrew and English translation. He then tops it off with what is, in my opinion, the most easy to understand commentary for the modern reader and does it all with great detail. A beautiful Kabbalistic work.
