The Bnei Baruch World #Kabbalah #Convention begins today in #Monterrey (#Mexico). It will last three days, and will continue in #NewJersey (#USA). I believe that participants will come closer to the revelation of the true world in which we exist. All activities are available to all.

Baal HaSulam: I rejoice at the flaws that are revealed, and despair at those still concealed. For it is unknown when they will be revealed, and the help of the Creator is needed. They are revealed in their initial state, and one must rejoice at the revelation for it means that the time has come for its correction.

Advice: do not wait until you’re in decline, because you can raise Netzutzim to the correction yourself. Therefore, always search for how to further improve your state, provoke the darkness!

The way the breakage occurred as a result of baseless hatred, so the correction has to be the result of baseless love.

Restriction means not wanting more than there is, wanting to stay in this state forever, in which case it is an eternal adhesion. While desiring more is an overkill and a cause for sorrow. Progress is to achieve joy in a state of increasing lack of egoistic fulfillment in the mind and feelings!

Relationship Between Teacher And Student

laitman_528.04Question: The role of the teacher is very important in studying the wisdom of Kabbalah.
What is a Kabbalah teacher?

Answer: First of all, it is the one who has received knowledge from a recognized Kabbalist. Second, he teaches from original sources. Third, he does not attract attention to his personality. And fourth, he directs everyone to the revelation of the Creator.

Question: What is the interaction between the student and the teacher?

Answer: The interaction depends on the student, not on the teacher. The teacher can help the student in everything that can benefit him. However, he completely detaches himself from interfering with the inner world of the student, thus teaching him to become self-attaining.

On one hand, there is a constant concern for the development and care of the student. But the teacher always keeps a certain distance from the student in order to give him a feeling of freewill, freedom of action, freedom of decisions, and so on, because no one can be a substitute for student’s independent progress.

Question: What is the difference between a Kabbalah teacher and a teacher of other disciplines?

Answer: A Kabbalah teacher does not teach as much as he gives the student advice how, by changing himself, he can reveal what he needs to attain. What student comprehends is his, not the teacher’s attainment.

He goes along a certain path, constantly developing his inner properties, his soul, and achieves even greater revelation of the Creator. This is purely his personal achievement. Therefore, the teacher here is just an external, helping source.

Torah And Vowels

Laitman_507.05Question: Vowels are used in Hebrew: nekudot—dots above the letters that indicate the correct pronunciation of the vowels. There is an account that they were developed by a family from Tiberias after the destruction of the Temple in order to preserve the sound of the Torah. But we study that the vowel vocalizations are the lights that are above the letter, i.e., above the Kli (vessel) or under the Kli.

Were the nekudot invented by the Tiberias family to record the Torah? After all, the Torah itself was written without nekudot.

Answer: It does not matter. In the Torah, there are really not very many signs necessary for its reading. After all, when you read the Torah, you must reproduce it with all your external and internal instruments.

That is, I must know how I sing the text, how I give intonation to each sentence, where I can pause, and where it is forbidden. After all, a person cannot read the text in one breath.

Moreover, the reading of the Torah is different from usual reading when you take air into the lungs, read something out loud, and release the air. When reading the Torah, I must properly manage my lungs like an organ in a cathedral. I press on certain parts of my lungs, which consist of five parts. After that, I turn on the five parts of the reproduction apparatus: the larynx, throat, mouth, lips, and teeth.

Therefore, Hebrew letters are a shortened form of the huge, powerful data that a person received in order to read.
