What Is The Basis Of The Wisdom Of Kabbalah?
What does the wisdom revolve around? This question comes to the mind of every right-minded person [because by asking the question about the meaning of life, he will definitely arrive at the need to reveal the Creator, and that means to the science of Kabbalah].
To properly address it, I will provide a reliable and lasting definition: This wisdom [Kabbalah] is no more and no less than a sequence of roots [causes and sources], which hang down by way of cause and consequence, by fixed, determined rules, interweaving to a single, exalted goal described as “the revelation of His Godliness [the quality of bestowal and love] to His creatures in this world” [over the course of this life or in subsequent lives if a person does not reveal the Creator fully in this life].
