Kabbalists About The Concealed Torah And The Revealed Torah, Part 5

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

Studying the Concealed Torah Is Preferable to the Revealed Torah

It has also been clarified that it is impossible for the whole of Israel to come to that great purity [complete correction of egoistic intentions] except through the study of Kabbalah [in the group with the right intention], which is the easiest way adequate even for commoners [regardless of one’s level of development]. However, while engaging only in the revealed Torah [rather than Kabbalah], it is impossible to be rewarded through it, except for a chosen few and after great efforts, but not for the majority of the people [who are not yet ready to go through affliction for the sake of correction of egoism].
– Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot”, Item 36

  1. Dear Rav:

    I am learning SHAR HA GILGULIM for years. Still I have NOT finished the book.

    In addition to the above, I learned from SHAR HA GILGILLIM that CHAIM VITAL SAID that one must lean the TORA at ALL 4 levels.

    As a POOR MAN, AS A BEGGER I start this way, however eventually all the 4 levels of the TORA must be learned.
