Question: If Kabbalists have become stronger and stronger over time, is it preferable to read the books of a later Kabbalist?
Answer: The books of Baal HaSulam and Rabash and our lessons are the best for spiritual advancement because they are expressed in a language that is very close to our souls. Books that were written earlier are difficult for us to grasp. Even though they were written by Kabbalistic giants, their style is far from us.
