The Book of Zohar (Book of Radiance), also known as, The Zohar, is one of the most mysterious and misunderstood compositions ever written. The amazement, admiration, and even fear that it has aroused in recent years are insurmountable. This book contains the secrets of all Creation, but until recently these secrets were shrouded in a cloud of mystery and misconceptions. Now The Zohar is openly developing its wisdom around the world, to show humanity a way forward, as the book itself declares (Vayera, article 460), "When the days of the Messiah draw near, even babies will discover the secrets of wisdom. "The greatest Kabbalist of the 20th century, Rav Yehuda Ashlag (1884-1954) opened a new path for us so that we can reveal the secrets of The Zohar. He wrote the Sulam [Scale] Commentary and the four presentations of The Zohar to help us come to know the forces that govern our lives, and teach us how we can take control of our destiny. Opening the Zohar is an invitation to a wonderful journey to a higher world. The author, Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman, wisely introduces us to the revelations of the Sulam commentary. In doing so, Laitman helps us fine-tune our thoughts, as we read in the Zohar, to maximize the spiritual benefit derived from reading it. In addition to explaining the Book of Zohar, the book contains numerous inspiring quotes from The Zohar, concretely translated, edited and compiled to facilitate the reading and understanding of this powerful text.
