Lesson Highlights

  • Other names for the Ana B'Koach: the 42 Letter Name, the Name of Mem Bet
  • 42 forces of energy that can change our environment
  • Kabbalists recite the Ana B'Koach throughout the day to elevate their consciousness
  • Balancing our energy before lifting off for a higher plane of consciousness
  • The seven lines correspond to the seven days of the week and seven sefirot
  • Each line of six words is recited in pairs
  • Seraphim: six winged angels: wings (kanof) means corners; seraphim cover all dimensions of physicality
  • The first two words protect us from being influenced by external factors, the middle two words from focusing too much on the internal, and the last two words of each line help us elevate to a higher consciousness
  • Our degree of transformation and the power of the Ana B'Koach
  • The Ana B'Koach cannot elevate us beyond what we have earned

Lesson Description

In this lesson, David explains the structure of the six lines of the Ana b'Koach and how the kabbalists used this prayer as a tool of transformation and protection.

About This Course

The prayer of Ana B'Koach invokes the 42-Letter Name of God, connecting to the undiluted force of creation. The kabbalists teach that tapping into this connection through this prayer allows anyone to make a fresh start. The magnitude of this meditation cannot be underestimated — consisting of seven sentences with six letters each, the 42-Letter Name is considered to be one of the most powerful prayers in the universe. Join Senior Instructor David Ghiyam for this course based on the book The Prayer of the Kabbalist and learn one of the most powerful tools to create change in your life.
