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.

Feel free to submit questions concerning these quotes and I will do my best to answer.

  2. Dear Billy.
    As a recent (past 5 years) student of the Zohar I felt a need to respond to your response to Erin. She
    I think it is really important these days to not deter anyone from following any path of transformation.

    Actually the Zohar really is not the Torah – Wiki – The Zohar (Hebrew: זֹהַר‬, lit. “Splendor” or “Radiance”) is the foundational work in the literature of Jewish mystical thought known as Kabbalah.[1] It is a group of books including commentary on the mystical aspects of the Torah (the five books of Moses) and scriptural interpretations as well as material on mysticism, mythical cosmogony, and mystical psychology. The Zohar contains discussions of the nature of God, the origin and structure of the universe, the nature of souls, redemption, the relationship of Ego to Darkness and “true self” to “The Light of God”, and the relationship between the “universal energy” and man. Its scriptural exegesis can be considered an esoteric form of the Rabbinic literature known as Midrash, which elaborates on the Torah.

    • I share what the Kabbalists teach. And all Kabbalists say that sharing the Zohar with all humankind is the way we reach transformation of ourselves and this entire world through mercy as opposed to judgment. Everyone is free to pursue any path they choose. All the paths that lead to the Light are true. But the Zohar nourishes all paths and nurtures all paths, like the heart that nourishes all the organs of the body. The Zohar insures that our growth happens with blessing, peace and mercy, as opposed to hardship and judgment.
