Universal Meaning of the Kabbalah. Publisher: Allen & Unwin. Study of the Kabbalah relating the metaphysical basis of Judaism to Eastern religions, Christianity & all great spiritual traditions. Translated from the French.

"The Universal Meaning of the Kabbalah" is a discussion of the meaning of God, the Universe and Man, their essential unity and fundamental attributes as seen through the eyes of Jewish esoteric tradition. The author expounds the Kabbalah's universal teachings which relate all things to their supreme archetypes, the ten "Sefiroth" or principal aspects of God. In addition to the Old Testament and the Talmud, M.Schaya discusses one of the classical sources of Jewish mysticism, the "Zohar" or Book of Splendour. The author promotes the view that to rediscover the deepest meaning of the Old Testament through the interpretations of the Kabbalah, is something that could have a most tonic and enlightening effect on the whole of Christain thought today; these scriptures emphasize a knowledge concerning the triple ordr, Divine, cosmic, and human on which the New Testament itself rests - and is seen to inevitably transform a man's spiritual and moral outlook in a mananer that will affect his whole scale of values and actions.
