Understanding kabbalah thought

The Torah can be seen as the messenger and the kabbalah as the message. He has been lecturing on kabbalah since There is a tendency to separate kabbalah from mainstream Judaism.

The rest depends on us. Rabbi Akiva was the person who was forsaken from the unfortunate fate of the other rabbis caused by the total misunderstanding of Pardes, exactly because of him entering the entire Pardes, including the kabbalistic level of interpretation known as sod, and that is why he came out with a complete and full understanding, while the other rabbis did not continue in their studies and stopped midway. The wisdom of kabbalah can be seen as one of the most ancient philosophies on earth.

Therefore, he wrote a book known as Sefer Yetzirah Book of Formation and in it he revealed all the secrets of the divine and transcendental consciousness, known to us as G-d.

But the Ari Hakadosh disagrees with this approach and explains the story like this: In any case, the kabbalah did not joaeph with these events, although it did shake the then-known foundations of Judaism. Specific dates were indictated for the final redemption and the revelation of the Messiah.

The idea of transcendental consciousness, known to us now as kabbalah, was born. It was only after the revelation of the Zohar Book of Splendor by Rabbi Shimon Bar-Iochai in jpseph first and second centuries, that the entire code of the kabbalah was deciphered, offering open access to this wisdom.
