Answer: We don’t put anyone under a polygraph test, but a person who wants to study the wisdom of Kabbalah should be mentally healthy. The reason is that this study requires a certain level of internal concentration. It is a study of the meaning of life, of man, of our connection with nature, and of the way we are all connected to each other, etc. The wisdom of Kabbalah deals with information that can require a bit of an effort from a person. I have come across cases when the condition of a mentally ill person who didn’t have strong nerves worsened as a result. These cases are quite rare, but it may still occur.
Question: Can a person study the wisdom of Kabbalah by himself or does it have to be in the right framework?
Answer: He will not achieve anything if he studies by himself. The point is that studying the wisdom of Kabbalah is divided into theoretical and practical study. A person has to gradually feel the plan in which the Kabbalistic instructions operate and how he should work with them, change himself and his fate, and this is only possible in the circle of his friends.
Question: Does that mean that the wisdom of Kabbalah is a collective study?
Answer: Yes, according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, all of humanity is in a collective, living in an absolutely enclosed space.
