Probably the best book on the qabalah in print. Highly recommended. ( )

Tis a good introduction to the Qabalah ( )

Dion Fortune systematically explains the nature of the QBLH, specifically the Tree of Life, and then leads the reader through the meaning of each of the Sephiroth. The explainations are a bit jumpy, not due to any lack of ability for Dion's writing, but largely due to the interconnection of the Tree, and the inability to understand one Sephira on it's own. A book that would really improve the reader's understanding with a second time through it. A fairly complete book, which seems beneficial to both beginner and intermediate QBLHists. ( )

"The Qabalah, whose disciplines include the occult sciences of astrology and tarot, forms the basis of the Western Mystery Tradition. It is a system of mystical knowledge and spiritual development in the same way that Yoga is the mystical system of the East. The Tree of Life – a diagram consisting of 10 circles connected by 22 "paths" – is the heart of Qabalistic teaching. It is a cosmic diagram; the blueprint of the universe and the human being, containing within itself a description of all possible relationships and all phenomena."

This is written from within the system of the Hermetic Qabalah (not the Jewish one), but many parallels and insights to our own pathworking can be drawn from it, as well as some clarification...

Fortune covers the subject better than anyone when it comes to the paths and the sephiroth. Always insightful, sometimes challenging, and very exhaustive, I believe this is THE best book out there for beginners. ( )

Pred vama je najobimnije i najpoznatije delo Dion Fortune, i spada u malobrojne klasike okultne literature koji su obeležili savremeni ezoterični preprod. Mistična kabala detaljno objašnjava kabalističko Drvo života, a poglavlja su strukturisana tako da se u njima podrobno analiziraju svaki od 10 Sefirota, njihova simbolika i korespondencije, kao i sveobuhvatnost sistema znanja neophodnog svakom zapadnom magičaru i Adeptu na njegovom putu samospoznaje. Ovo je prva prava enciklopedija Kabale na našem jeziku, u novom boljem prevodu, koja modernim terminima prodire u srž «Joge Zapada», kako ju je nazvala Dion Fortune, i pruža teorijske osnove za praktično bavljenje tom drevnom hebrejskom Naukom.

Very few students of occultism know anything at all about the fountain-head whence their tradition springs.

Again we say the tree of life is a method of using the mind not a system of knowledge.
