Overview

"Kabbalist Rav Yehuda Ashlag was arguably the most profound mystic and spiritual teacher of the 20th Century. Among his many gifts was his ability to take complex concepts and decipher them in a systematic fashion, distilling them down to their very essence. His writings are so pithy that they are studied repeatedly for the deep insights they offer into human nature and the spiritual realm." The 12 essays presented here are remarkable in that they cover and condense all of the basic truths of Kabbalah. Essentially, the essays are about human dignity and how people must behave toward one another in order to eliminate chaos in the world, based on the abiding principle of "Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself." Rav Ashlag understood that the transformation of human consciousness from a state of desiring to receive to desiring to give - that is, from greed and selfishness to love and sharing - is the true challenge of humankind.
