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.
