Questions I received about the Vedas, theosophy, other Kabbalists and autism:
Question: I find your lectures and books very interesting. I do not want to compare Kabbalah in any way to other “teachings,” but can you tell me what your thoughts are on the “Vedas,” which are teachings from India? My interest is to understand what your opinion is on other teachings that may have similar views, however different the “Kabbalah” approach may be.
My Answer: These teachings are psychological and act within the boundaries of our world.
Question: Are there any contacts between spiritually advanced representatives of Kabbalah and spiritually advanced representatives of Theosophy?
My Answer: No!
Question: Whenever Kabbalah is mentioned on TV, the name of a certain contemporary Kabbalist, Rafael, is mentioned more frequently than your name. This Rafael explains that Kabbalah says that the Messiah will come to the world soon, which is completely contrary to what you say. Can you please comment?
My Answer: I am not acquainted with him. I just know that today there are many “Kabbalists” on every corner…
Question: I recently had the privilege of attending a young severely autistic boy called David’s Bar Mitzvah, where he sang all seven Torah readings in perfect pitch and tone. You could have heard a pin drop; it was amazing. His mother said to me after that David says the words sing to him. What does Kabbalah say about the Hebrew letters in the sense of the letters singing to a boy and what does it say about severely disabled children?
My Answer: Autistic people are unable to make corrections. It is a special life cycle of a soul in our world. Our task is to help them; this will correct both us and them.
