Publisher Comments:

Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan has translated Sefer Yetzirah, the oldest and most mysterious of all kabbalistic texts, and now brings its theoretical, meditative, and magical implications to light. He expounds on the dynamics of the spiritual domain, the worlds of the Sefirot, souls, and angels. When properly understood, Sefer Yetzirah becomes the instruction manual for a very special type of meditation meant to strengthen concentration and to aid the development of telekinetic and telepathic powers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Synopsis:

The "Sefer Yetzirah" explores the point of infinity, kabbalistic astrology, Ezekiel's vision and the mystery of the 231 gates. The short, long and Saadia versions are included, and there is a digest on the major commentaries.

Synopsis:

Text: English, Hebrew

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 341-388) and index.

KIER8, July 10, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
All agree that "The Sefer Yetzirah:The Book of Creation" is the oldest text of Kabbalah. Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan performed a yeoman job in producing this scholarly yet readible annotated translation of Rabbi Eliahu of Vilna's edition of this mysterious work [Rabbi Kaplan also provides a translation of three other editions: Shorter Version, Longer Version and Saadia Gaon's Version]. Includes extensive notes and index.

Ahryeh Kaplan translates the eloquence and the poetry of this mystical book very well, and his interpretations are amazing. A must-read for the more advanced Kabbalah student.
