The Kabbalah of Rabbi Ashlag


  • Why did God go?

    24/07/2015 Duration: 13min

    In the external world, the Temple has been destroyed and is not yet rebuilt. We lack the real living reality of God within the heart of the nation. If we extrapolate that to our inner selves we can see, that what we are really missing is the experience of the presence of God within ourselves, and it is that lack that we mourn at this time.

  • It is through our feelings that we may attain the Names of God

    02/07/2015 Duration: 19min

    When I learn the work of Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag, the Baal HaSulam, I am struck by the joy and the love that is embedded in his work. Listening to some old recordings of him giving a lesson, we hear his voice ringing out with joy. He was clearly a man of both deep understanding and […]

  • The Torah as a Jewel

    08/06/2015 Duration: 16min

    "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you” The inner beauty of the Torah speaks to our soul, as the essence of the Torah , the essence of the soul and the essence of the Creator are One. A life of Torah is a beautification of the Creation . From the teachings of Rabbi Ashlag on the Zohar and on the Etz Chayim of the Ari z''l

  • The hidden beauty of the spiritual night

    17/05/2015 Duration: 12min

    The term "night", in the language of the Kabbalah refers to the time when the Creator's presence is hidden from us. We yearn for the day… . But is there something we are missing? The Zohar hints to us that there is a special value to the time of the night. From the teachings of Rabbi Ashlag in preparation for the festival of Shavuot.

  • He keeps His promise

    09/04/2015 Duration: 13min

    Blessed be He who keeps His promise to Israel. This saying in the Haggadah gets greater force when we learn a remarkable article in the Zohar, in which we learn how faith played a crucial part in the redemption and that God, kept His promise to the froefathers, Abraham Isaac and Jacob to the letter. This is a promise we rely on even today.

  • Purim then and now: A message for our turbulent times

    04/03/2015 Duration: 23min

    We are living in turbulent times; the light of redemption is close but so are the forces of destruction growing. How do we deal with this?The inner meanings of the Megillat Esther as explained by Rabbi Ashlag teach us what choices are available to us, and how to make these choices conscious and positive.

  • Inner slavery / inner redemption

    25/01/2015 Duration: 16min

    Rabbi Ashlag teaches that all the events of the Torah are not simply historical events but a record of the revelation of God within us. Thus in our psyche we find all the elements of the story of the Exodus, including the inner Pharaoh. How does this inner pharaoh manifest, and what is going to help us get free?

  • Exile followed inner descent

    12/01/2015 Duration: 15min

    We think that our thoughts are a response to our outer reality. However, Rabbi Ashlag in examining the causes of the exile of the Children of Israel in Egypt shows that precisely the opposite occurred there. The Children of Israel suffered initially a spiritual descent, which then enabled the Egyptians to gain a hold over them they would otherwise never have achieved. The same principles hold true for each of us, regarding our own inner exiles, and our inner redemptions today.

  • When God’s light is hidden from us

    11/12/2014 Duration: 19min

    "O God, My God, You, I seek You. My soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You, in an arid and thirsty land without water" ( Psalm 63). David said these words when he was in sorrow and trouble. The Zohar looks at the circumstances in which David said this Psalm , and shows us the nature of God's light when it is hidden from us. It transpires that David is actually teaching us the consciousness of God's light when it is concealed from us and how we may yet connect with God even when we can't.

  • The truth of Jacob

    25/11/2014 Duration: 24min

    The Sages of the Zohar asked Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai , Why did Jacob withhold giving Esau some lentil stew until he had sold him the birthright? The unspoken question is "Is that the way a righteous man behaves?!" Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai 's answer, was decisive. Jacob was a righteous man of truth who is incapable of deceiving anyone. What was this truth of Yaakov and how does it affect us till this day?
