The Wisdom of Kabbalah

The Wisdom of Kabbalah, Lecture 1

This talk is the first in a series of lectures about the Wisdom of Kabbalah. So where should we start? Let us begin with man’s state. Over the course of thousands of years of his development, certain questions ripen in man. These are questions about the meaning of life. As we all know, even people many centuries ago were preoccupied with these questions in the same way this occurs to each one of us today...

The Wisdom of Kabbalah, Lecture 2

During our last conversation we talked about man and his perception of the world; how he evolves through his incarnations into a state where a question arises in him, namely: “What is the meaning of my life”? “For what sake do I live”? It is a question about the essence of life...

The Wisdom of Kabbalah, Lecture 3

During previous lessons, we discussed the material of creation, which is the desire to receive. The Creator created it Yesh mi Ain (lit. existence from absence). However, we do not discuss this from the Creator’s point of view, but rather from man’s position...

There are many people in this world who specialize in different fields such as physics, biology, zoology, botany, and so on. They want to know about nature and so they study it. After doing their research they have knowledge and experience, they have learned the laws of nature, and they know how we can better utilize nature to our advantage...

The Wisdom of Kabbalah, Lecture 7

The Science of Kabbalah did not come about as some product of human thought, detached from genuine reality. Rather, man investigated the surrounding reality as a whole and achieved a state when he revealed reality beyond the level of perception of his five senses. The science that studies this Upper reality is called Kabbalah...
