IT IS IMPORTANT TO STUDY THE ZOHAR HA KADOSH IN PUBLIC “From the year 1540 onward, it is most important that all study the Kabbalah in public and preoccupy themselves with the study of Kabbalah. For through the merit of Kabbalah and in fact solely through Kabbalah will the Mashiach appear and forever efface war, destruction, social injustice, and above all, the man in humanity”. Rabbi Avraham Azulai, Or ha Chama, Introduction
WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY ONE BLESSED BE HE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY OF THE ZOHAR AND THE GREAT BENEFIT TO THE SOUL OF THE PERSON THAT READS IT EVEN IF HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HE SAYS “Because of this work, the Book of the Zohar, [the Jews] will be redeemed from exile” The Zohar ha Kaddosh (3, 124b)
THE LANGUAGE OF THE ZOHAR PURIFIES THE SOUL One who does not merit to understand The Zohar, he should nevertheless learn, because the language of the Zohar purifies the soul (Ohr Tzaddikim by Rav Meir Papirash a student of the Ari ha Kadosh, siman A, 16)
HOW THE ZOHAR HA KADOSH PURIFIES THE SOUL? To explain how the Zohar purifies the soul even when the reader doesn’t understand what he says, we have the example of he who enters a perfume store, even if he doesn’t buy any perfume, when he leaves the store, he has the smell attached to him (Degel Machane Ephraim to the Likutim, 5)
THE ONE WITH LITTLE TIME TO STUDY SHOULD STUDY THE ZOHAR
A person who is involved most of the day in his business dealings will dedicate most of his study to the Zohar ha Kaddosh, even if he doesn’t understand, because even so, it is of great benefit to him (Short sayings of the Alter Rebbe 571)
A REMEDY AGAINST HERESY AND EVIL O that my people would listen to me, in this evil generation when heresy increases, It is proper to learn the Zohar and the Tikkunim with children nine years of age so that their fear of Hashem will precede their wisdom and will be maintained (Notzer Chessed on Massechet Avot, Perek 4)
A GREAT CORRECTION TO THE SHECHINA It is necessary to read in the Sefer ha Zohar even when he does not know what it says because it is a great correction to the Shechina and to his own soul as it is known for various reasons. (Tikkun Leil Shavuot Le ha Ramaz at the end of the Sefer Tov ha Aretz of the Moharnash)
HA KADOSH BARUCH RECTIFIES THE WORDS OF HE WHO STUDIES He who studies the Zohar, even when he doesn’t understand what comes out of his mouth, Ha Kadosh Baruchu rectifies his words…And even when he is like an animal that does not know how to read, even with all this, his reward will be double and there is an insinuation in the verse (Tehillim) “Man and beast Hashem saves” where the Gematria of the words TOSHIA HASHEM (Saves Hashem) plus the letters plus the 2 words themselves equals the sum of the following: ZOHAR TIKKUNIM BE DIKDUK TZACH (TZADDI CHET – TZE CHASHOV) (Hakdamat of the Editor of the Zohar edition printed in Livorno) ...
Why We Must Study Sod (Secrets) in Torah Codes Rabbi Glazerson Zohar, Kabbalah, Isaac Luria The 16th century Kabbalist, Rabbi Isaac Luria revolutionized the study of Jewish mysticism through Kabbalah. He had the gift to explore the innermost depths of the Zohar. His disciple Rabbi Chaim Vital wrote down his teachings which have come to be known as Lurianic Kabbalah.
In this table we take his name, Isaac Luria, and pair it with Zohar and Kabbalah. The probabiilty that a table as compact as this would arise in the ELS random placement monkey text population is 9.5/100,000. The expected number of ELSs is set to 50. The cylinder has 16 columns. The probabiilty that a table as compact as this would arise in the ELS random placement monkey text population is 9.5/100,000. Finding by Rabbi Glazerson
The Kabbalah, Zohar, Isaac Luria table has a development found by Professor Rips. To understand the significance of the development one must understand the four different Miluim of the tetragrammaton Divine name.
One way of making the filling of the Divine name has a gematria of 72 and this is the Divine name as manifested in the World of Emanation, whose dominant sefirah is Chochmah. Another way of making the filling of the Divine name has a gematria of 45. This is the Divine name as manifested in the World of Formation, whose dominant sefirah is Tiferet.
Starting from 45 and going to 72 corresponds to starting from the Tiferet, the central sefirah of emotion, and going to the Chochma, the sefirah of wisdom. This is the path of the returning light. According to the Kabbalah teaching, one of our jobs in the world is to clarify it. Clarifying it means transforming the evil we encounter to good. Evil here means a perceived lack of Divine presence. When we are in a situation (which the technical language of the Kabbalah calls a vessel) and think that the Divine is not present, then we need clarification. We accomplish the clarification by thinking, speaking, and doing, in a Torah correct way by which the lack or deficiency that we initially perceived changes to a fullness and completeness. By our virtuous thoughts, speech, and action, the physical world is changed and our consciousness of it is changed. Thus, we have clarified a situation was that "muddy", not clear.
The development found by Professor Rips is the ELS phrase: 45 (the Divine name of gematria 45 in the world of formation) will clarify in the vessel 72, (the Divine name of gematria 72 in the world of emanation). This is kabbalistic technical language saying that the vessel in which we found ourselves did not have the flow of Shefa, the divine light, and we acted in such a way that the received Divine light was made to flow from lower to higher to illuminate the vessel. The illuminated vessel is associated with the Chochmah, wisdom. The phrase will clarify in the vessel is the precise phrase that is used in the Kabbalah teachings.
