RAV BERG QUOTES
Most Kabbalists throughout history spoke and revealed the teachings of Kabbalah. Then, a chosen disciple wrote it down. Rav Shimon Bar Yochai revealed the Zohar teachings but it was Rabbi Abba who composed the Zohar. Why? He had the skill and talent to conceal the wisdom in metaphor and enigmatic language so only the worthy would grasp the wisdom.
The Ari, Rav Isaac Luria, revealed the power and teachings of the Zohar through oral teaching. But it was his chosen disciple Rav Chaim Vital, and his son Shmuel Vital, who composed the multi-volume “Writings of the Ari.”
Kabbalist Rav Yehuda Ashlag and Kabbalist Rav Berg are distinct in that they revealed by orally teaching Kabbalah, and they also produced a tremendous amount of writings and books bringing Kabbalah down to the level of the layperson.
This is what makes them altogether unique from all others.
Periodically appearing on this blog will be some short but profound quotes from Rav Berg’s oral and written teachings. Below are a few to start with.
