I have picked yet another classic from my bookshelf.
This is a must for the seeker on the spiritual path. Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov did not write books, but his lectures are collected together and made into books on different topics.
Yesod in Hebrew means foundation or base. This is a book of the importance of purity on all levels. The old Egyptians priests had to start as web-priests learning about purity before they could enter the temple.
If you are going somewhere nice, meeting your beloved or having guests you take extra effort to make yourself and your home clean and nice. The same is important if you prepare for spiritual work.
This book teaches you not only the immense significance of purity, but turns it from some kind of repression to a joy and liberation. We have a sense of wellbeing and vitality, we know when we feel vital and healthy or not, in this book you learn many ways to improve that.
This is also a very good introduction book on the kabbalah and the main factors to improve your health.
It is a good introduction to the deep understanding and inspiring words that are easy to understand of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov
