Answer: There is a teacher in Kabbalah, and there are also his assistants who teach certain aspects of Kabbalah. But in any case, everything comes from a teacher who sets the general direction and spirit of development. His assistants report to him, but each teaches separately.
Question: Does the teacher feel responsible for every word that he says to the students?
Answer: Absolutely. One can pass on this knowledge only to the extent that one believes that it is true, and that one has experienced it, and suffered for it. It belongs to him, meaning that he has paid for it.
