Kabbalists About Studying Kabbalah, Part 18

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

Engaging in Kabbalah Requires No Preliminary Excellence

During the practice of Torah, every person must labor in it [but not by learning the text by heart], and set his mind and heart to find “the light of the king’s countenance” in it [the Light of correction, Hassadim, and later on, the Light of fulfillment, Hochma, which both are called “the Upper Light”], that is, the attainment of open Providence, called “light of countenance.” And any person is fit for it, as it is written, “those that seek Me shall find Me.”

Thus, one needs nothing in this matter except the labor alone [in attaining the property of bestowal and love].
– Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot,” Item 97

  1. When one seeks and has questions, the Light generally answers these. Others it does not, that we most pose in written or verbal form as here. It would seem that when one searches sincerely in Torah, but yet must ask physically — it is to the purpose that the question must be generally asked for the sake of the group, and he has become its representative to the teacher at this moment.

    Assuming one has, to the best of their ability to tell, labored sincerely, is this always true?
