Introductory Concepts of Kabbalah

Introductory Concepts of Kabbalah. Kabbalah can be translated from the Hebrew as “received tradition”, and is a term applied to a vast and seemingly disparate body of esoteric knowledge and practice. It is used to describe Jewish mysticism in general, or more specifically the tradition which found its impetus in the Sefer ha-Zohar (“The Book of Splendor”) of the thirteenth century. It is also applied to the Christian or Western Kabbalah which grew from German and Lurianic Kabbalism and found its expression and extension in western Mystery Orders, such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This 11-page introduction is a good place to start before reading the more in depth works (we have a fine selection of them here at holybooks.com, pleas use the search function. )
