Description
The Kabbalah is the system of Jewish esoterism that has its roots in the Old Testament and the Zohar, its development in Palestine and Europe over the course of hundreds of years, and now its crude popularization and intellectual despoiling in recent times. This classic book by Leo Schaya is one of the best known expositions of the doctrine of the Kabbalah for the educated public. It offers to those who refuse to cut corners a gradual revelation of the depth and breadth of a system of thought and practice that has illuminated the minds and spirits of many generations of Jewish mystics.

The general concepts explained in The Universal Meaning of the Kabbalah will be familiar to readers accustomed to traditionalist/perennialist thought or basic theology. Thus, a reader of any religious background can find in the book common ground from which to understand how the Kabbalah approaches scripture, the attributes of the Divine, creation, heaven, the cosmos, the mystery of man, man's relationship with God, the "Great Name of God," and more.

About the Author(s)

Leo Schaya

Leo Schaya was a writer in the Traditionalist/Perennialist school. He was particularly known for his writings on Jewish esoterism, with his book The Universal Meaning of the Kabbalah (1958) being one of the best known and often-quoted works in that field; however, he also was at home in the area of Sufi metaphysical interpretation. World Wisdom has published a collection of Schaya’s seminal work on his central theme, titled Universal Aspects of the Kabbalah and Judaism (2014), which includes some previously unpublished material.

Leo Schaya's essay "Creation, the Image of God" is one of the articles collected in the anthology Seeing God Everywhere: Essays on Nature and the Sacred . Another essay, "On the Name "Allah" is included in Sufism: Love and Wisdom . An online sample of his writing, the essay "The Eliatic Function" (about the esoteric function of the prophet Elijah), which appeared in the important traditionalist journal Studies in Comparative Religion, can be read if you click here.
