Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Kaplan, Orthodox rabbi and author of Meditation and the Bible (Weiser, 1978) and Meditation and Kabbalah (Weiser, 1981), shows that meditation is consistent with traditional Jewish thought and practice. He then presents a guide to a variety of meditative techniques: mantra meditation (with suggested phrases and Bible verses to use as mantras); contemplation; visualization; experiencing nothingness (which he does not recommend for beginners); conversing with God; and prayer. His instructions are clear and explicit, and his advice is informed and sound, advocating that a simple 20-minute-a-day program can indeed help make the practitioner a better person and a better Jew, and develop a closer relationship to God and things spiritual. Recommended for general collections. Marcia G. Fuchs, Guilford Free Lib., Ct.

Review

"[This is] the first book to read on the subject. It is a gentle, clear introduction and provides exercises and practices that can be used right away by any Jew who wants a deeper prayer experience."
--Rodger Kamenetz, author of The Jew in the Lotus and Stalking Elijah

"New and old davveners can learn from this sainted teacher how to deepen their holy processes. . . . One can, with the help of God and the aid of this manual, tap into the Cosmic."
--Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi

"A guide to Jewish prayer and meditation that is both grounded in the tradition and genuinely mind-expanding. For anyone seeking to connect with the spiritual side of Judaism, this book is essential."
--William Novak

"At a time when Jews are rediscovering their hunger for spirituality, Kaplan's clear and comprehensive book could well be one of the most important Jewish books or our time."
--Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

"The classic text for Jews who want to experience the meditative methods of their own spiritual tradition."
--Daniel Goleman, author of The Meditative Mind
