The Kabbalistic Approach

Q: How many methods are there for the study of Kabbalah and which is the most efficient for our time?

A: Generally speaking, there were two systems in the study of Kabbalah: one was called the “Kabbalah of the RAMAK” (Rabbi Moshe Kordoviro); the other is the “Kabbalah of the Ari.”

The first was in use until the 16th century, when at the beginning of that century, the Kabbalah of the Ari was established. The Ari described it in his books, and all the Kabbalists after him followed in his footsteps. Baal HaSulam is strictly a Kabbalist of the system of the Ari Known as Lurianic Kabbalah.

The souls that descended to our world before the Ari were from the
“old type.” But from his time on, there was a drastic change in the souls that descended, and some of them began to demand spiritual elevation.

Q: Is it possible to change the future through Kabbalah?

A: The Kabbalah is meant for precisely that purpose.
