    4. Applying restriction

Lesson Description

Rav Ashlag explains that the doors of Kabbalah were closed because people could abuse it, now the doors can be opened because Kabbalah doesn’t benefit the ego. Meir emphasizes that the biggest the desire to receive, the farthest we get from the Light.

About This Course

Rav Ashlag, the founder of The Kabbalah Centre, was a visionary pioneer. He stood in the face of opposition and made it his mission to plead the case of studying this wisdom. Over the past few years more of Rav Ashlag’s writings have been making their way to the Kabbalah Centre. These new writings, which contain Rav Ashlag’s thoughts and explanations on a variety of topics are being brought to the public for the first time in this class. Join Senior Instructor Meir Yeshurun for this in-depth study of one of the most difficult, yet profound Kabbalistic texts and reveals the essence and central focus of our spiritual work.
