You write that the study of the Kabbalah accelerates the advancement of man’s soul in its journey toward the spiritual. But that acceleration is certainly accompanied by an over-compression of events. In other words, what man should experience in hundreds of years he’ll experience in a few decades. But how strongly?..
I read that Kabbalah develops the ability to sense the elements of reality and the spiritual worlds. But I also understand that time and space do not exist; that there are no other worlds and that there is nothing besides the Creator. How then should I properly see reality?..
You said that the modern Kabbalah was created by the Ari, and was later renewed by Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag. How can that be? We know that the Torah was given to us from heaven and that it doesn’t change; why then does Kabbalah change, and moreover, how can people change it? Isn’t Kabbalah a part of the Torah?..
Is the difference between Judaism and Kabbalah that Judaism is a religion, and Kabbalah is a wisdom based on rationality and understanding?..
You wrote in one of your articles: “There is a singular, reciprocal link between a spiritual root and a corporeal branch.” How does that mesh with the fact that there are a great many languages in the world, and only the Hebrew language is the one that creation leans on? Are all other languages an incorrect reflection of the spiritual world?..
Upon multiple readings of your books, I noticed that certain places in the text seemed very familiar. When I tried to analyze them, I became convinced that some Kabbalistic concepts form the basis of various global religions. Though Kabbalah is not a religion, it seems to have the potential to unite the more progressive representatives of global religions (a topic frequently discussed in the Vatican). Do you foresee such a possibility?..
What are the sources you usually cite regarding the meaning of Kabbalah?..
Rabbi Laitman, what is your attitude toward the books of the Ari? Is The Study of the Ten Sefirotthe only book on Kabbalah that you consider holy?..
You can’t say there are no other ways except for Kabbalah! It would be more accurate to say that ALL roads lead to the Creator, but Kabbalah is the shortest of them...
How is the method of Kabbalah different from other methods of attaining spirituality?..
Lately, there have begun to appear various study groups for Kabbalah. Is it worthwhile checking them out?..
Isn’t Kabbalah another form of mysticism, like many others in the world?..
