What Is Kabbalistic Meditation?

laitman_562.02Question: What is Kabbalistic meditation?

Answer: I don’t know what is meant by the term “meditation” in various methodologies, philosophies, psychologies, and teachings. Possibly, it is a practice of a person directing his thoughts toward some specific task or action.

In Kabbalah, meditation is equivalent to intention, when I want to connect to the upper Light in order for it to change me, to perform some kind of action on me. Perhaps the desire to come close to the Light, i.e., a specific inner volitional effort, could be called meditation.

At the same time, one should concentrate on a single thought: “There is none else besides Him,” “the good that does good.”
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian, 9/3/17
