The Vital Link

Dr. Michael LaitmanWithout Rabash’s articles, we wouldn’t know how to aim ourselves at the goal correctly since Baal HaSulam is giving us scholarly advice from great spiritual heights. We are unable to extrapolate the details for our unification from there in order to take even one step and put it in practice. Meanwhile, Rabash starts at the first point and explains each step to us. After that, we are able to understand and put Baal HaSulam’s method in to practice.

When we start approaching the practical Kabbalah, the actual revelation of the Creator, Rabash’s articles and The Zohar become vital to us. Rabash’s articles help us form the correct intention, and The Book of Zohar helps us draw the Light that reveals the spiritual world with this intention.

Rabash has done what no other Kabbalist before him had. He described all the stages of the inner work of man, which is the practical realization of the Torah. He was the only link in the entire chain of Kabbalists, starting with Adam HaRishon, who handed down to us a step-by-step explanation of the individual and group work so vital for us today.

Before Rabash, Kabbalists wrote about their own individual attainment for such was spiritual evolution during the 2000 years of concealment, the exile from spirituality. Before the exile, the people existed in spiritual attainment, so there wasn’t a need to talk about what every child was learning as it grew. However, in order to ascend from concealment in our time, we need the sources that will aim us at the passage into the spiritual world. This can be achieved solely through studying the articles written by Rabash.

Without Rabash’s articles, we would not be able to understand other Kabbalistic texts correctly either. Hence, our work consists of the following two parts:
1.     Studying the articles of Rabash.
2.     Attuning ourselves correctly and proceeding with The Book of Zohar or The Study Of the Ten Sefirot so that we can now work with them correctly and draw the Light that Reforms.

Rabash was very reserved and humble. He always kept himself  in the shadow of his great father. All of his strength and magnitude were deeply concealed within and were impossible to see from the outside. He was the first to start teaching Kabbalah to the non-religious audience, regardless of their background. He considered dissemination of Kabbalah to the masses of paramount importance.
