What Is Receiving The Torah?

214.01Question: What is the spiritual meaning of receiving the Torah? What does a person receive? Some kind of instruction within himself, how to work with his egoism, some kind of insight?

Answer: Receiving the Torah means that a certain power is revealed in a person that helps him be above his egoism.

If you want to receive the Torah, you must begin to study it for yourself. After all, how else can you study it if not through your own experience when you gradually turn from a small egoist to a huge egoist, and then from a small altruist to a big altruist.

You can accept this method of correction only when you understand that you are voluntarily going to change yourself to become a spiritual person, spiritual, in the property of bestowal and love for all.
