New Life #625 – RABASH- Rabbi Baruch Shalom HaLevi Ashlag
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
RABASH was the son of the great Kabbalist Baal HaSulam. He related to his father as his teacher, and that wasn’t easy. He was a construction worker, paving roads, and also studied with his father every day in the early morning as is customary with Kabbalists.
He was a humble man, kept himself very hidden. In his youth he received rabbinical ordination from Rav Kook and Rav Sonnenfeld. He wrote what he heard from his father and gladly accepted the secular students for the study of Kabbalah because it was the time for correction.
There is no one more important in our world than Baal HaSulam and his son RABASH, they prepared the way for the system of correction for the world. Thanks to them, there is a paved road for advancement to the next stage of our development, the understanding and recognition of the upper world.
I gave lectures in Tel Aviv and from there I brought over 40 students to study with RABASH, and then he began to write special articles for them. In these articles he expressed all of the inner work that a person must do in order to realize the purpose of life. We need to develop to the level of man that resembles the upper force, to rise above the ego, which divides us, and to unite. Baal HaSulam and RABASH prepared a medicine against the ego, which distances us from each other and causes separation, repulsion, and mutual hatred. With the help of this medicine, it is possible to treat and heal all the diseases in the world and to really become “one man with one heart.”
When people learn how to connect, they discover between them the upper force, a special force of love and connection. And then they begin to feel a new level of life, a higher harmony. If there are good relations between us, then each one will care for the others, and this will solve all the problems. Of course, our nature is opposed to this connection, thus we need the medicine, the system, to rise above our nature.
Thanks to Baal HaSulam and RABASH, the world to come opens up to us the next level of existence where we are all united. Of course, none of this belongs to religion. The wisdom of Kabbalah originates from the knowledge of the upper force only. In conclusion, these two great lights open the door to the upper world for us, whole, eternal, and enlightened.
