Kabbalists About Studying Kabbalah, Part 5

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

Concerning the Obligation of Each Person to Study the Wisdom of Kabbalah

Now it is upon us, relics, to correct that dreadful wrong [detachment of the masses from Kabbalah]. Each of us remainders should take upon himself, heart and soul, to henceforth intensify the internality of the Torah [Kabbalah], and give it its rightful place [in their hearts], according to its merit [in bringing us to eternality and perfection] over the externality of the Torah [that speaks only about the external observation of rituals].
– Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to The Book of Zohar,” Item 71

Not only are these secrets [of Kabbalah] not forbidden to disclose [to everybody], on the contrary, it is a great Mitzva (very good deed) to disclose them [because the Creator reveals Himself through them]. And one who knows how to disclose and discloses them, his reward is plentiful. This is because on disclosing these Lights to many, particularly to the many, depends the coming of Messiah soon in our days [elimination of affliction].
– Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to The Study of The Ten Sefirot,” Item 30
