centuries, only a few learned rabbis and their followers practiced these
mystical traditions and kept them hidden from the general public.
This collective knowledge, or tradition, became known as the Kabbalah.

knowledge was passed by word of mouth between those privileged few for
thousands of years until it was first written down about 2,000 years
ago. The advent of the printing press made it possible for the masses to

Rather than rehash the fundamental principles of the
Kabbalah, from the many books mentioned in this volume, this book
