Kabbalists On The Language Of Kabbalah, Part 5

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

The Wisdom of Kabbalah Does Not Speak of Our Corporeal World

Woe to those wicked ones [ignorant people] who say that the Torah is no more than a story [about this earthly world], and regard only the clothing [external narratives of the Torah]. Happy are the righteous who view the Torah [its inner content] appropriately.

Wine lies only in the jug; likewise, the Torah lies only in that clothing in its external clothing which has a form of stories [that seemingly take place in this world]. Hence, we should consider what exists beneath the clothing [within it]. Thus, all of those stories are the clothing [whereas the true essence of the Torah, the truth that the Creator wishes to pass to us, is presented in Kabbalah. This is the reason why Kabbalah is called the “inner Torah.”].
The Book of Zohar with the Sulam [Ladder] Commentary, Parashat BeHaalotecha, Item 64
