The Book of Creation, or "Sefer Yetzirah in Hebrew, is one of the oldest manuscripts in the world. It is also one of the first mystical books on Kabbalah.

The English translation of the "Book of Creation," also called the "Book of Formation" is from the text of the Hebrew manuscript, the "Sefer Yetzirah."

This strange manuscript has been studied for centuries. Famous rabbis and Qabalists have pondered the obscure meanings and variety of conflicting interpretations, correspondences, illusions and delusions.

What is The Book of Creation?

Kabblaah, Book of Formation, Book of Creation, Sefer Yetzirah

The "Sefer Yetzirah" ( also spelled as Sefer Yetzira, Sepher Yetsirah, etc.) has been in written form for about 2,000 years. This book is probably the most important of all the Kabbalistic texts.

The "book" was originally a very short manuscript, perhaps a few hundreds words long. The Book of Creation explains the entire process of the Universe in ten simple terms and 22 letters.

But, with all of its simplicity, this cryptic manuscript has evoked speculation and controversy for centuries.

The Book of Creation explores deep into divine magical formation and human manipulation of the Universe. The manuscript was written as a riddle or series of riddles. To unravel the mysteries of the book is to understand creation and know how to create something out of nothing.

Some commentators have claim that the book contains the knowledge of how to manipulate the foundations of the Universe, Time and Man. It also holds the key to the creation of a golem, an artificial man. Many say that it's both- a manual about how to manipulate nature and secretly gives the recipe to create a golem as proof.
