Meditation and Kabbalah

Meditation and Kabbalah

Aryeh Kaplan
4.3/5 (229 ratings)
A lucid in-depth presentation of the meditative techniques and practices used by the ancient Kabbalists.
 
The Kabbalah is divided into three branches—the theoretical, the meditative, and the magical. While many books, both in Hebrew and English, have explored the theoretical Kabbalah, very little has been published regarding the meditative methods of the various schools of Kabbalah. Aryeh Kaplan’s landmark work, reveals the methodology of the ancient Kabbalists and stresses the meditative techniques that were essential to their discipline, including:
the use of pictures or letter designs as objects of meditation
the repetition of specific words or phrases, such as the divine names, to produce profound meditative state
In addition, Meditation and Kabbalah presents relevant portions of such meditative texts as:

The Grellier Hekhalot, Textbook of the Merkava School
The works of Abraham Abulafia
Joseph Gikatalia's Gales of Light

The Glltes of Holiness

Gale of The Holy Spirit, Textbook of the Lurianic School
