Michael explains that the main purpose of the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah, and the revelations of Rav Shimon Bar Yochai is to remove darkness from the world.
The thirty-third day of the Omer is the day when kabbalist Rav Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, left this physical reality. On this day we can connect with the Light that Rav Shimon revealed throughout his life and the Light of the Zohar, which embodies that light of immortality that was lost on Mount Sinai.
