Lesson Highlights

  • Panim Masbirot (Rav Ashlag)
  • If we stay in the place of Restriction, we bring our mind back to the original simple Light, rather than the fragmentations of Light
  • Story from the Torah
  • The Israelites needed food and called out to the Creator for sustenance. The Creator told them, I will give you manna (bread from the sky)
  • The manna never became clothed in something physical or took on any physical form
  • Whoever tasted the manna tasted something different, according to their desire
  • Rav Ashlag asks: how is it possible that all the different tastes were contained within one source?
  • The manna was endless Light, which contains all the variations of Light
  • Our mind cannot understand how one source has many variations, but restriction allows us to taste the Endless Light and then choose which specific form of the Light we want to connect with
  • Restriction awakens true free will

Homework: Practice restriction. Practice stopping to pause before entering into the world after Tzimtzum. Reflect on how your free will is activated with restriction. How is your ability to choose affected? Do you taste the world differently?

Lesson Description

In this lesson, Yehuda reviews a well-known story from the Torah – the story of the manna – in teaching about the various expressions of the Light of the Creator. Learn more about how the tool of restriction enables us to connect to the Creator’s infinite expressions.

About This Course

Rav Yehuda Ashlag, renowned founder of The Kabbalah Centre, wrote several seminal kabbalistic texts that illustrate key understandings for applying the ancient wisdom into our lives. Amongst his works is a book on the Tree of Life – otherwise known as the Ten Emanations/Sefirot that make up our reality – which provides a foundation on how to connect with the consciousness behind each of the Ten Emanations, giving us the ability to awaken that particular level in our life. Join us for an in-depth study of each of the Ten Emanations as detailed in Rav Ashlag’s book, 'Tree of Life with Panim Meirot and Panim Masbirot'. As we study Rav Ashlag’s powerful insights into the Sefirot, we’ll learn how to build a unified consciousness with the intention of elevating not only ourselves, but the entire world to a level free from pain and suffering.
