New Life #1002 – The Oral Torah, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
The wisdom of Kabbalah has passed orally from teacher to student for 5,778 years according to the dedication and open heart of the student. The oral Torah transmits how to perform the corrections about which the written Torah speaks. For example, in the Torah of Moses, one can read how to achieve the goal of creation, which is adhesion with the Creator according to “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). Realization of the Torah of Moses, however, requires additional guidance because in his generation, he could not have written otherwise. It is necessary to add exercises and give verbal advice in order for the student to connect with people like him in love and to discover the Creator. The Kabbalist teaches his students how to break their focus and redirect their views toward the upper world. The students must adapt themselves to discovering the Creator, the characteristic of love and bestowal. The upper world that is opened is an upside-down world; it is entirely bestowal and love beyond time, motion, and space.
