The Definitions Of Kabbalah

281.01Question: What was the first definition of Kabbalah even before Baal HaSulam?

Answer: Adam HaRishon, the first person to attain the Creator, gave the definition of Kabbalah as a method of attaining the Creator.

Later the great Italian Kabbalist of the eighteenth century Ramchal said: “The whole of the wisdom of Kabbalah is only to know the guidance of the Higher Will, why it has created all these creatures, what It wants of them… .” (Daat Tevunot, p 21)

If you want to read the definitions of Kabbalah given by different Kabbalists, they will all be similar because this is the wisdom about attaining the Creator, the upper governance.
