“Introduction of The Book of Zohar,” Article “The Twelfth Commandment,” Item 245: … [it is] being said about the eleventh Mitzva and not this Mitzva. Indeed, The Zohar mixes them right at the beginning of the eleventh Mitzva for it says, “There are two Mitzvot here.” The printer, however, divided them into two.
The Book of Zohar in its initial form was a commentary on the entire TaNaKh (the Torah, Nevi’im or the Prophets, and Ketuvim or the Scriptures), which implies that its volume was much greater than what has reached us. But for various reasons, the major part of The Zohar vanished, and we have to accept whatever was left of the original text as given to us by the upper management so that we could correct ourselves.
Evidently, we don’t need more that that. Each generation is endowed with what is necessary for the type of souls that appear in that generation in our corporeal world.
Therefore, we have to embrace The Zohar as it has come to us, as its parts are printed and intermixed. The Light that emanates from this Book reforms us; its effect is evident. We must accept everything as a fact and do the job we are responsible for.
