Answer: There are sins for which it is worthwhile to end the life of the sinner and not allow him the possibility of moving from our world to the upper world because, in any case, it won’t help.
In the ego of the sinner, there are such transgressions done against humanity that he cannot cover over in this life and go out to a higher dimension. If a verdict of death is obtained correctly, then according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, it is not a death sentence, but a correction for the person.
Question: Does visiting graves help spiritual development?
Answer: No, Kabbalists relate to this with great indifference and perform this more as a ritual. A yearly visit to the grave of a family member or a teacher is nothing more than a tradition.
I was convinced about this according to the conduct of my teacher, Rabash, and according to my feeling that there is no meaning or reason for visiting graves. Meeting with the spirit of my teacher while studying his writings has had a much closer meaning for me than when I have stood before cold stones.

Question: Are you afraid of death?
Answer: No, I think that there are many people who don’t fear death. On the contrary, many would want it.
Question: Do you know when your death will happen?
Answer: What for? If a person is found beyond his physical state, he accepts the death of the body calmly. He knows how to plan his way in the world, his way with his students, and this helps him. If not, then knowledge of the time of death would pressure and overwhelm him. Therefore, it is preferable not to know.
