Question: Very often on the lectures you mention that Bnei Baruch is the most powerful group in the world now. My question is: What does this mean, “the most powerful group”? Can a student choose a group? And if one can, then how to do that?
Answer: In their impact on the world, the world Bnei Baruch group is a powerful educational organization, both in terms of the amount of its members and its affect on human development.
Question: I have done some research, so would you be so kind as to answer the following: The main authors of Kabbalah books in English are: 1. Eliphas Levi, 2. MacGregor Mathers, 3. H.P. Blavatsky, and 4. A.E. Waite. These are inherently men of questionable backgrounds. How can I trust this material?
Second, I see there has never been any copy of The Zohar found earlier than the Middle Ages. Why is this?
Answer: These authors are not Kabbalists, that is, they have not reached the revelation of the Creator, and they describe their own visions. The Zohar was discovered by the masses in the Middle Ages because previously it was handed down only from Kabbalist to Kabbalist. The Zohar was revealed because the widow of the Kabbalist Moshe de Leon, due to lack of means, began to sell his books, including The Zohar. Baal HaSulam writes about this in “Introduction to The Book of Zohar.”
