Sefer HaPli'ah - Sefer HaKaneh, kabbalistic matters. By Rabbi Avigdor Kara of Prague. Przemyśl, 1883.
The approbations of this edition are the source of the Chassidic tradition regarding the powerful segula of owning this book. R. Aharon of Sanz, son of the Divrei Chaim, writes in his approbation "The tradition is accepted among us that it has the segula of bringing blessing into the home". Another approbation by the Husiatyn Rebbe describes the great protection that this book gives to a person's home. Especially interesting is the approbation of R. Uri HaCohen of Sambir who humbly writes: "Although I do not understand anything in this holy book, it is worthwhile to take Sefer HaPli'ah and see its holy letters… to light our eyes with the Torah, to understand even a little of the book".
