Question: Why did you say that participation in the convention gives a person spiritual advancement equal to that of a minimum of a half year’s work?
Answer: The convention is a place where we all fall under the concentrated impact of an exalted spiritual force. Clearly, it affects us greatly. The Light resides there “clothed in the society,” and if I annul myself before this society, I receive their desires (spiritual vessels), enthusiasm, and aspiration to bestow.
Hence, the Light starts affecting me through them, through their vessels. It turns out that I advance by receiving their vessels and the Light.
Let’s hope that everyone will experience this; I am looking forward to it myself! Everyone benefits from it, whether they are a beginner or a Kabbalist with attainment since the Upper Light knows no limits. “The Creator dwells among His people,” and if such a huge mass of people gets together and desires to reveal spirituality, then thanks to their great quantity and despite their small desire, everyone can gain the force of life!
