Kabbalists About Kabbalah Today, Part 11

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

The Importance of Disseminating the Wisdom of Kabbalah

For a long time now, my conscience has burdened me with a demand to come out and create a fundamental composition regarding the essence of Judaism, religion, and the wisdom of Kabbalah, and spread it among the nation, so people will come to know and properly understand these exalted matters in their true meaning.
– Baal HaSulam, “Time to Act

Disclosure of the wisdom of the hidden in great masses, which is a necessary precondition that must be met prior to the complete redemption.
– Baal HaSulam, “Messiah’s Horn

It is the great expansion of the wisdom of truth within the nation that we need first, so we may merit receiving the benefit from our Messiah [the force that corrects egoism and is called “Mashiach” from the Hebrew word “Limshoch,” to pull from egoism]. Consequently, the expansion [in the masses] of the wisdom [Kabbalah] and the coming of our Messiah are interdependent. Therefore, we must establish seminaries and compose books to hasten the distribution of the wisdom throughout the nation.
– Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to the Book, Panim Meirot uMasbirot,” Item 5

  1. Dear Rav,

    Should we understand that for Kabbalah the last generation, or the times of the Messiah, will not conclude with the arrival of a Messiah as religions define it (i.e. a spiritual force clothed in a human form) ? This force would then not be corporeal at all, but would act the same way one expects a Messiah-in-flesh to?
