The Power Of The Book Of Zohar

Just reading The Zohar brings many results; it evokes various phenomena and changes in a person. A person does not understand what he reads, but he tries to understand it, driven by his nature, even though from the point of view of Kabbalah this is not necessary at all. He may read it with the right intention or one that is not so correct.

In any case, the book works on him, influencing him so he advances. He cannot avoid feeling the changes inside. He should only keep returning to this book as often as possible, read it every chance he gets, and stay connected to it in some way.

Then he will see that this book is built in such a way that it creates for him a picture of reality parallel to his current reality, and he starts to slightly shift between them. Instead of the superficial story he imagines something beyond this reality. That is how The Zohar works inside a person, creating new qualities of perception inside him.

The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 26th Tevet, 5771


Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    Those who engage solely in the dresses of the Torah are gravely mistaken, may G-d have mercy on them. And when the Lord’s demand is abandoned and the majority of the multitude of the sages of the Torah do not know its purpose, and they consider the wisdom of the Torah with its purpose as mere addition of some quip to the laws—which, though truly sacred and precious—they will not illuminate our souls.

–The Rav Raiah Kook,
Igrot (Letters), Vol. 2, 8

The Most Effective Means Of Advancement

The Book of Zohar affects a person in a special way. It’s enough for a person to read, listen, and desire to be connected, even virtually, with the group (it all could happen just to a small degree, to the extent that life allows a person to free himself for this book), and The Zohar starts developing the spiritual organ of perception in him. As it occurs, a person begins to experience changes, stages of development.

The Book of Zohar just needs to be read. It would be good to publish selected pieces in a pocket format so that a person can read it anywhere. In truth, there isn’t a more effective means for advancement than this book.

The Book of Psalms doesn’t help to advance a person spiritually. Humanity has been reading it for thousands of years. People are simply pacifying themselves.

This doesn’t in any way diminish the value of the Book of Psalms, written at the degree of the complete Malchut. After all, King David represents Malchut, the entire creation. Like all other “holy” books written by those who have attained the Creator, they carry His Light within.

However, as Baal HaSulam explains in the “Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot,” the Light that Reforms, builds the property of bestowal within us is closer and more effective for us if it comes from The Book of Zohar. The Light in The Zohar is the most powerful.

Obviously, reading The Zohar must go in hand with studying the articles of Baal HaSulam and Rabash and The Study of the Ten Sefirot. Yet, The Book of Zohar should fill all of a person’s free time.

From the 2nd part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 12/30/10, "Introduction of The Book of Zohar, Article “Yitro (Jethro)”

The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 24th Tevet, 5771


Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    The merit of contemplating the words of the Living G-d in The Book of Zohar and all that accompany it, and the words of the wisdom of truth, is immeasurable and priceless. It is especially so with the clear words of the Ari.

    And even if one has not yet come to understand the heart of the matter through in-depth scrutiny, through constant engagement, the gates of Light and doors of wisdom will appear to all who walk on the path of G-d in wholeness, whose soul craves nearing the King’s Hall. Hence, blessed will be all who volunteer to engage in the wisdom for even an hour or two a day, every day. The Creator adds an act to a good thought, and it will be regarded as standing, always and everyday, in the Lord’s Court and His Abode, in the secrets of the Torah.

Who Love Israel with Holiness, 232

The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 23rd Tevet, 5771


Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    Why then did the Kabbalists obligate each person to study the wisdom of Kabbalah? Indeed, there is a great thing in it, worthy of being publicized: There is a wonderful, invaluable remedy to those who engage in the wisdom of Kabbalah. Although they do not understand what they are learning, through the yearning and the great desire to understand what they are learning, they awaken upon themselves the Lights that surround their souls.

    This means that every person from Israel is guaranteed to finally attain all the wonderful attainments that the Creator has calculated in the Thought of Creation to delight every creature. One who has not been rewarded in this life will be rewarded in the next life, etc. until one completes the Creator’s Thought of him.

–Rav Yehuda Ashlag (Baal HaSulam),
“Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot,” Item 155

The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 22nd Tevet, 5771


Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    The study of The Book of Zohar is above all studies and is a great correction to the soul. Since the whole of the Torah is the Names of the Creator, it is nevertheless clothed in stories, and one who reads the stories thinks of the literal. However, in The Book of Zohar, the secrets themselves are revealed, and the reader knows that they are the secrets of the Torah, although it is not understood because of the smallness of the attaining, and the depth of the attained.

The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 21st Tevet, 5771


Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    At the time of the Messiah, evil increases and impudence and vice will be led by the heads of the mixed multitude. Then the Hidden Light will appear from the Heaven—The Book of Zohar, followed by the writings of the Holy Ari. And this learning will root out the evil in his soul. He will be rewarded with cleaving to the Upper Light, and he will be rewarded all the virtues in the world. It is for this reason that this Light appeared.

    And the essence of your study in the internality of the Torah will be to attain illumination and G-dly liveliness in your soul during your study and through the rest of the day. The Ari said that at that time the hidden will become revealed, and learning the secrets of the Torah and revealing the secrets to everyone from Israel gives joy to the Creator.

–Heichal HaBrahch (The Hall of Blessing),
Devarim (Deuteronomy) 208
