Its exact origins are unknown, and hotly debated. Some scholars believe it might have an early Medieval origin, while others emphasize earlier traditions appearing in the book.Although Sepher Yetzirah means The Book of Formation, it is not in any sense a narrative of Creation, or a substitute Genesis, but is an ancient and instructive philosophical treatise upon one aspect of the origin of the universe and mankind- an aspect at once archaic and essentially Hebrew. The grouping of the processes of origin into an arrangement, at once alphabetic and numeral, is one only to be found in Semitic authors.When properly understood, Sepher 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 Enhanced E-Book edition includes a completely revised and re-digitized version of the original William Wynn Wescott translation fully optimized for Kindle viewing. Also included are newly digitized editions of two landmark Kabbalah works from 1913, Jewish Mysticism by J. Abelson and The Cabala, Its Influence on Judaism and Christianity by Bernhard Pick. There is also an image gallery showcasing Kabbalah art and symbolism.*Active Table of Contents accessible from the Kindle go to feature.*Perfect formatting in rich text compatible with Kindles Text-to-Speech features.
