Annunaki and Kabbalah Have Nothing in Common

Annunaki and Kabbalah Have Nothing in CommonA question I received: There’s one problem I must resolve before I can start studying Kabbalah. I would really appreciate an honest answer from you, and I hope that my question won’t annoy you.

What is the connection between Kabbalah and Annunaki? If Kabbalah can “turn off” your ego, then what forces will take you over afterward? Before I start “turning off” my ego, how can I make sure that Kabbalah does not take advantage and seek control over people who aspire for greater self-awareness?

My answer: I am not familiar with Annunaki, but this teaching is not connected to Kabbalah in any way. A person who studies Kabbalah does not “turn off” his ego, and he is always able to control the situation. One also doesn’t turn off one’s mind or desires, but on the contrary – they grow together with one’s ego. In Kabbalah, one learns how to control his mind and desires, and to this extent, they grow.

  1. Dear Rav Laitman,

    For your information: “Annunaki” is one of the names that the Sumerians used for their gods. Also, in recent years, the term has been used by New Age writer Zechariah Sitchin, whose ideas I am not very familiar with, but what little I do know shows, as you say, no connection with Kabbalah, and probably not much to do with the actual religion of the Sumerians and their Annunaki (elohim).

  2. Dear Rav,
    When we feel so much pain, feel angry with others, the corporeal world, and ourselves, due to our egoism, are we permitted to get angry with the Creator as well?
