Understanding Life and the Universe Through the Ancient Wisdom of Kabbalah

Kabbalah, the spiritual philosophy of Jewish “received” oral traditions that span thousands of years, is a Jewish approach to spirituality bound to the Scriptures and teachings of the Jewish people, as well as to its customs.

According to the tradition of Kabbalah centre, God gave Moses at Sinai three Torahs, or three foundational narratives of Jewish peoplehood: a written Torah, an oral one, and a third “hidden” Torah, the Kabbalah. This latter form of Torah contains the essential wisdom of the Book of the Zohar, which provides a mystical commentary on the written Torah’s contents.

Kabbalah is a school of thought. It teaches that all of what our life entails stems from the same origin. It aims to impart an understanding of how the universe works at its core and has its roots in the Jewish religion. Nevertheless, it has been adapted and merged with other theologies and thought movements.

One of the modern religion organizations that translate old Kabbalah teachings into a modern and universal message is The Kabbalah Centre. Founded in the U.S. in 1965 as The National Research Institute of Kabbalah by Rabbi Philip Berg and Rabbi Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein, and re-established later by Berg and his wife Karen, the Kabbalah Centre teaches Kabbalah as a way of creating a better life and world. Its New Age style has attracted an extensive following, including many celebrities, and has a multi-ethnic, international staff of teachers.

The Kabbalah Centre has branches in more than 40 cities around the world, organises and hosts a wide range of events, spiritual retreats, tours to energy sites and volunteering opportunities. The Centre seeks to provide spiritual tools based on the principles of Kabbalah. Each student can then apply these tools to his or her own life in order to make a change for the better. The Centre teaches five principles: Sharing, Awareness and Balance of the Ego, Existence of Spiritual Laws, We Are All One and Leaving Our Comfort Zone Can Create Miracles. These principles are taught in courses and classes, through online lectures and with the aid of books audio products.

Fulfillment at the Kabbalah Centre

The mystical and powerful teachings of Kabbalah have been made easily accessible through the Kabbalah Centre’s online classes, study groups, and centres. This Los Angeles based non-profit organizations seeks to enlighten the population about how the universe works. The original Centre was opened in 1965 as the National Research Institute of Kabbalah. Over the years, it evolved into the Kabbalah Centre in 1984.

Philip and Karen Berg, the directors, have developed the presentation of Kabbalah. It used to be that Rabbis that the teachings of the Kabbalah were too complex for people to understand and appreciate. The Bergs felt like they could present it in such a way others would understand. They made it so that those who wish to study do not have any prior knowledge understand the teachings easily. According to its base principle, all religions stem from the same universal truth. The Kabbalah does not want to substitute religion but supplement it.

The ultimate goal of Kabbalah is to teach how everything in the Universe is connected and how understanding that can relieve pain. Through the teachings, you will “receive” the happiness and fulfillment that you deserve. Teachings show that you will learn how everything in your life is connected.

The Kabbalah Centre gives the everyday access of these ancient mystical teachings. They have given potential students access through study groups worldwide, classes and resources online, or other resources. The Bergs have opened many to the true fulfillment that studying at the Kabbalah Centre can bring. The celebrity status does help. Famous followers include Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Madonna, and Paris Hilton.
