In recent years, a newly awakened interest in the Kabbalah and the Zohar has . See Obadya Hedaya The Complete Book of the Zohar on the Torah (Petach. His thought alone completed the entire Creation and required no physical actions . A question arises accordingly: Why did He create worlds, restriction upon.
In the future the children of Israel will taste from the Tree of Life, which is The Book of Zohar ; they will leave the exile with the Creator's mercy" Naso This is when He thought and initially created 13 words to surround the Community of Israel and guard it.
Here they are: And who is He? He is the opening of the eyes, which is the Malchut of the Rosh head of Arich Anpin. And you shall see that Atik is concealed and within it lies the answer to the question: Since the question lies in Him, He is concealed.
This question is only found at the highest boundary of heaven. Rabbi Shimon said, Elazar, my son, reveal the supernal secret, which the dwellers of this world know nothing about. The heavens were created by the name property MA Malchut.
However, the phrase "above the heavens" refers to Bina , which is called MI , the heavens that are above ZA. The explanation of this lies in the name of Elokim. MA Malchut rises up, includes itself into Bina, and receives its properties. Bina is called Elokim. It is said that when the Creator was about to create the world, all of the letters were still hidden.
For two thousand years before the creation of the world, the Creator watched the letters and amused Himself with them. And who created them?
He who is not mentioned; He who is concealed and unknown, Arich Anpin. There is a lock with a tiny and narrow keyhole inside the gates.

No one knows about it without having the key. Abraham When did this key unlock the gates, and prepare everything for the existence and development of generations?
This occurred when Abraham appeared, as he is the property of Hesed mercy , of which it is written: "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth Be-Ibar'am with which He created. The pillars of the world will not be delivered into your hands, and Rabbi Shimon shall not be consumed by you! The Two Points At the end of all those gates, He set up a gate with many locks, many entrances, and many chambers one on top of the other.
He said, "Whoever wants to reach Me must first pass through this gate.
Whoever enters through this gate, may enter. This is why it is called the "beginning.
Kabbalah: The Zohar
All the friends present in the bridal chamber on that night, following the holiday of Shavuot, are obliged to stand under the wedding canopy Heb. In the mid 20th century, the Jewish historian Gershom Scholem contended that de Leon himself was the most likely author of the Zohar. Among other things, Scholem noticed the Zohar's frequent errors in Aramaic grammar, its suspicious traces of Spanish words and sentence patterns, and its lack of knowledge of the land of Israel.
This finding is still disputed by many Orthodox Jews.
Other Jewish scholars have also suggested the possibility that the Zohar was written by a group of people, including de Leon. This theory generally presents de Leon as having been the leader of a mystical school, whose collective effort resulted in the Zohar. Even if de Leon wrote the text, the entire contents of the book may not be fraudulent. Parts of it may be based on older works, and it was a common practice to ascribe the authorship of a document to an ancient rabbi in order to give the document more weight.
It is possible that Moshe de Leon considered himself inspired to write this text. Mysticism "Woe unto the man," says Simeon ben Yohai , "who asserts that this Torah intends to relate only commonplace things and secular narratives; for if this were so, then in the present times likewise a Torah might be written with more attractive narratives.
In truth, however, the matter is thus: The upper world and the lower are established upon one and the same principle; in the lower world is Israel, in the upper world are the angels.
When the angels wish to descend to the lower world, they have to don earthly garments. If this be true of the angels, how much more so of the Torah, for whose sake, indeed, the world and the angels were alike created and exist.
The world could simply not have endured to look upon it. Now the narratives of the Torah are its garments.
He who thinks that these garments are the Torah itself deserves to perish and have no share in the world to come. Woe unto the fools who look no further when they see an elegant robe! More valuable than the garment is the body which carries it, and more valuable even than that is the soul which animates the body. Fools see only the garment of the Torah, the more intelligent see the body, the wise see the soul, its proper being; and in the Messianic time the 'upper soul' of the Torah will stand revealed.
The initial letters of the words "Peshat", "Remez", "Derash", and "Sod" form together the word "PaRDeS" Paradise , which became the designation for the fourfold meaning of which the mystical sense is the highest part.
The mystic allegorism is based by the Zohar on the principle that all visible things, the phenomena of nature included, have besides their exoteric reality an esoteric reality also, destined to instruct man in that which is invisible.

This principle is the necessary corollary of the fundamental doctrine of the Zohar. The universe being, according to that doctrine, a gradation of emanations, it follows that the human mind may recognize in each effect the supreme mark, and thus ascend to the cause of all causes. This ascension, however, can only be made gradually, after the mind has attained four various stages of knowledge; namely: 1 the knowledge of the exterior aspect of things, or, as the Zohar calls it ii.
After the knowledge through love comes the ecstatic state which is applied to the most holy visions.

To enter the state of ecstasy one had to remain motionless, with the hand between the knees, absorbed in contemplation and murmuring prayers and hymns. There were seven ecstatic stages, each of which was marked by a vision of a different color.
At each new stage the contemplative entered a heavenly hall "hekal" of a different hue, until he reached the seventh, which was colorless, and the appearance of which marked both the end of his contemplation and his lapse into unconsciousness.This book reaches out to all those who are searching for answers, who are seeking a logical and reliable way to understand the world's phenomena. It may well be that this objection was the reason that the irst translations into Hebrew were not printed.
