The Book Of Zohar Is A Source Of Information

laitman_250Question: How was The Book of Zohar written? Did its authors rely on some kind of source like the Torah, for example, or did they write everything only from their attainment?

Answer: The authors of The Book of Zohar had no library, computer, or connection to any information because the information itself was found within them; they were its source.

All ten people who wrote The Book of Zohar were one single spiritual body in which all the information that they described and partially expressed was found.

Beauty In The Eyes Of A Kabbalist

laitman_282_01Question: What is beauty from the point of view of a Kabbalist?

Answer: Beauty is an association of what cannot be associated. In this case, a person has a feeling of joy and happiness.

I would call someone beautiful if he had very huge contradictions that he is constantly working on and bringing into balance and completion.

Where Did The Congresses Come From?

laitman_944Question: Where did the congresses come from? Are there historical facts indicating that Kabbalists used to bring thousands of people together and hold such events, or is this something new?

Answer: There is nothing new here, and we are not inventing anything.

Kabbalah is built on the laws of the upper world; therefore, in everything we do, we must find out whether it is in accordance to its laws. Otherwise, it might harm us.

Conventions were held even in ancient Israel when people were in attainment of the upper world.

Kabbalists used to come to the Temple in Jerusalem three times a year: on Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot in order to study and to participate in the study and the meals with everyone. What is more, throughout the year people used to come to the Temple to study and have meals together. This was considered a very good deed, and we may even say, a Godly one.

“Obliterate The Remembrance Of Amalek”

Laitman_155Torah, Deuteronomy 25:19: [Therefore,] it will be, when the Lord your God grants you respite from all your enemies around [you] in the land which the Lord, your God, gives to you as an inheritance to possess, that you shall obliterate the remembrance of Amalek from beneath the heavens. You shall not forget!

Don’t forget that you must constantly obliterate the memory of Amalek.

Under no circumstances weaken your focus, be always on guard, and remember that Amalek—the intention for my own sake—can approach you at any moment, get inside of you to some specific desires and intentions, and steal them for himself. In this way, he will again receive sustenance from you, and you will be weakened on your path.

Question: When does the Creator finally give repose?

Answer: There is no repose.
