Question: If the main idea of all world religions is to unite people with some common idea and raise them to a higher power, why has the science of Kabbalah not become the leading world religion in these 6,000 years?
The science of Kabbalah is not a religion. You do not need to believe in it, you just need to realize it. The reason for the emergence of religions was the concealment of the science of Kabbalah.
Kabbalah does not affirm anything unfounded; it encourages a person to reveal and find what it is talking about. This is a science that is called Hochmat a-Kabbalah (the wisdom of Kabbalah) that is, wisdom. It consists of no sacred acts, passes, or anything else.
It does not say that you must believe. You must come to a state called faith. But faith is a state of bestowal, of rising above one’s egoism, not the faith that religions speak of.
That is, Kabbalah has absolutely nothing to do with them. So, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you are. Nationality and gender do not matter. The main thing is the desire to know where you live and what for. Kabbalah does not divide people into any signs. Whoever desires comes and engages in it.
