My interview with the EFE News Agency in Moscow was published on a number of international portals worldwide. EFE is the leading Spanish language news agency and the fourth largest news agency in the world.
Moscow, June 16 (EFE). Dr. Michael Laitman, scientist and teacher of the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah, today brought some 2,000 people to the Russian capital.
“We have about 70,000 Russian-speaking students in our International Academy of Kabbalah, including those living in China, Japan, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe,” Laitman told EFE.
Born in Vitebsk (Belarus), the founder of the International Academy of Kabbalah “Bnei Baruch” maintains a strong link with Russian culture, present throughout the former Soviet Union.
Professor of ontology and epistemology, with a Master’s degree in bio-cybernetics, and author of more than 40 books, Laitman promotes a major change in the consciousness of humanity.
The Academy founded by Laitman, with 2 million students around the world, treats the current crisis as an economic and financial phenomenon, but above all, as a moral collapse with cultural and social repercussions on all of humanity.
“This crisis is not a negative phenomenon, but a turning point for us to reach a higher level in our development as a civilization,” he explains.
In a globalized world and a global crisis, Laitman insists that humanity should “aspire to unity and harmony to meet the challenges of the historic moment” and find a “global and comprehensive solution.”
“Instead of demonstrating in the streets, as in Spain,” Laitman says, people should “begin to study, prepare for the new integrated world.” Meanwhile, the political and economic powers “should provide people with a minimum wage.”
Laitman describes himself as a scientist, “a realist,” not a mystic. He is convinced that his ideas are not utopian and can become a reality. EFE
