This concise history of the mystical book known to kabbalists as the Zohar is a virtual timeline showing its connection with great figures and events. The book addresses the myths surrounding this work, and covers who first revealed it, who wrote it down, and who studied it: prominent minds from Plato to the Knights Templar, to Sir Isaac Newton and present-day movers and shakers. Scholar Michael Berg clearly demonstrates that the Zohar and Kabbalah have had a profound influence on all the major disciplines, from literature and art to medicine and science.
The Zohar’s secrets have never been revealed quite as they are here in these pages, which decipher the codes behind the words of the ancient sages, and show how every person can apply the wisdom of Kabbalah to make their life infinitely better.
Michael Berg, renowned scholar and editor of the first-ever complete English translation of the 23-volume Zohar, interprets its “best” stories, and offers a special meditation for each one. The original Aramaic letters and words are included, to scan and to read aloud. (According to the greatest sages of Kabbalah, The Light of the Creator is embodied in the Zohar’s very letters and words. Scanning it in the original Aramaic is as important as reading its translation and understanding its relevance to daily life.)
Each chapter begins with a clear explanation of what follows it: a particular portion of the Zohar that presents wisdom to address many of life’s challenges—fears, the need for inspiration, the search for a soulmate, the purpose of spiritual work—all presented side by side in both Aramaic and its English translation.
Secrets of the Zohar features the most essential passages from the 23-volume Zohar set. This unique presentation allows readers to draw on the Zohar’s full energy to achieve true spiritual transformation, joy and fulfillment -- beginning right now.
