Kabbalah is Not a Religion
Q: Is there an equivalent to Kabbalah in other religions?
A: There is no equivalent to Kabbalah in other religions because the wisdom of Kabbalah is not a religion, but a science. It does not relate to religions, beliefs, extrasensory methods, or even Judaism. Any orthodox Jew will answer the question, “Do you know the wisdom of Kabbalah?” by saying that not only do they not know it, but they do not think there is any need to know it. And the response will be correct, as the wisdom of Kabbalah is not necessary for those who are occupied with religious rituals.
Moreover, the wisdom of Kabbalah intensifies both the desire to receive and the desire for knowledge, based on self-awareness and the attainment of the Upper World. Other religions, however, are built on self-restriction and abstemiousness.
