This year, Shabbat HaGadol (The Big Shabbat) coincided with the portion of Tzav and was also the 10th Day of Nisan, the day that Rav Ashlag's teacher left the world. This shabbat is the seed level of the energy that is revealed on Passover and it is this week that all of the Lights of all of the shabbats come together to assist us. This year we have the additional support of Rav Ashlag's teacher as we plant the seed for the removal of chaos from our lives and the world on Passover.
One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Sabbath is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
