About Kabbalah Centre
Kabbalah Centre began in Jerusalem in 1922 with the goal of disseminating the Kabbalah wisdom to the world. Rav Yehuda Ashlag was the founder and his student Rav Yehuda Brandwein succeeded him. He later handed the leadership responsibility to Rev Berg in 1969 who is the current Director of the center together with his wife and two sons. The center has its headquarters in Los Angeles California with 50 other Kabbalah Centre locations worldwide. More than 5,000 people take their online lessons every week, which includes lectures, prayer services, books, downloads, CDs, and DVDs. The center gives their students a platform to interact, exchange ideas with like-minded people, and develop relationships with them.
The Kabbalah Centre derives the teachings from Zohar, which is the sacred book that contains the Kabbalistic wisdom. Zohar also has the writings of the greatest Kabbalist in the world who decodes the mysteries of the Bible or Torah. Zohar terms some biblical passages as the codes of life and universal laws that connect the humans in one way or another. Additionally Kabbalah Centre has produced a series of Biblical teachings, and they give weekly commentaries on the teachings Torah. The Kabbalists teach that pain, war, and suffering would only end when the people learn and embrace Zohar and its wisdom.
Kabbalists teachings aim at educating people on the tools that will make their lives better and reduce pain and turmoil in the world. They also believe that human beings came into the world with one purpose, which is achieving complete fulfillment. Kabbalists claim that there are physical and spiritual rules that guide the world and understanding the rules is the primary goal behind their teachings. Another teaching of Kabbalah is “Similarity of form” which asks the question of “why we don’t experience life the way we are meant to.” In response to this, they believe that there is the energy that governs our everyday living called the “Light of the Creator.” The manifestations of this power are the feelings of love, joy, fulfillment, and goodness. The more the light is, the greater the fulfillment in our lives.
