Meditation and Kabbalah” by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan

A lucid presentation of the meditative methods, mantras, mandalas and other devices used, as well as a penetrating interpretation of their significance in the light of contemporary meditative research.

Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan (23 October 1934 – January 28, 1983) was a noted American Orthodox Rabbi and author, known for his “intimate knowledge of  both physics and kabbalah“. He was lauded as an original thinker and prolific writer, from studies of the Torah, Talmud and mysticism, to introductory pamphlets on Jewish beliefs and philosophy aimed at non-religious and newly religious Jews. His works are often regarded as a significant factor in the growth of the baal teshuva movement.

Review by Rabbi Yonassan Gershom

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 talking 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.
