613 Suggestions and 613 Deposits
The language of The Zohar calls the Mitzvot [commandments] in the Torah 613 deposits. However, it is also called 613 suggestions. The difference between them is that everything has an anterior and posterior. The preparation [correction of desire] for something is called “posterior,” and the attainment [in the corrected desire] of something is called “anterior.”
Accordingly, Torah and Mitzvot have the aspect of doing and the aspect of hearing, as our sages wrote (Shabbat 88), “Who carry out His word, hearing the voice of His word,” doing [correcting their desires] first and hearing [what they will receive in the property of bestowal, Bina] afterward. The Mitzvot are called 613 suggestions, and they are considered “posterior,” and when rewarded with hearing the voice of His word [because they have acquired the ability to hear, the property of bestowal, Bina], the 613 Mitzvot become deposits, from the term “deposit [the spreading of the Light of Hochma in the Light of Hassadim],” since there are 613 Mitzvot, and in each Mitzva, Light is deposited from a specific degree, corresponding to a specific organ of the 613 organs and tendons of the soul and of the body.
