The word "Kabbalah" means "receiving", and is sometimes spelled
Cabala, Cabbala, Kabbala, Kabala, Kabalah, Qabalah along with some other spellings. You could
call Kabbalah an esoteric offshoot of Judaism... however ...
The study of Kabbalah is about studying (and trying to understand) the divine, creation,
the soul and the meaning of life. These are questions various religions try to answers. However,
the traditional answers by religions are often too small for such immense questions. One could say the
questions themselves spawned all religions. Which is why the Kabbalah
has been a field of study and practice by many outside the Jewish religion.
Depending on from whom you learn Kabbalah, there can be meditative and devotional practices and/or
mystical and magical practices (which are generally only taught to a chosen few).
Some say Kabbalah has no beginning. Others say it began with the Biblical Adam. Still others
say it began with Moses.
Traditional historians argue Kabbalah began in the 1st century AD while
others say the 13th century.
Maybe Kabbalah began when the first person asked "Why?".
Those who study the Kabbalah might say that is what makes the Kabbalah so intriguing ... it helps us find those answers we are looking for.
