The Book Of Zohar – Open It, Read It, Try It

laitman_527.05Question: Are there restrictions for studying The Book of Zohar?

Answer: In our time there are no limitations for studying The Book of Zohar. It is possible to study it in any condition, in every combination, at every age.

The main thing is to open it, read it, and try to learn from it. It is desirable that the study be done through our lessons because that way there is no danger that you will become confused.

Comment: But Baal HaSulam wrote that there are three limitations that must not be violated when studying the wisdom of Kabbalah: substance, the form of the substance, and abstract form and essence.

Answer: The limitations are not about reading The Book of Zohar but about the perception of reality, meaning in what manner we must limit, connect, and shape ourselves, to direct ourselves precisely toward feeling the upper world. For this, there is a defined system of direction for us to the upper world.

The upper world is a world of forces, a world that must be copied, a world of bestowal. To the same degree that we resemble it, meaning to the degree that we are with the characteristics of bestowal, love, and connection, to that degree we begin to discover it.
