Kabbalah is Jewish mysticism, based upon a bundle of writings known as the Zohar. According to Chabad, “[T]he Zohar is indeed an authentic document of the teachings of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai (Rashbi), generally agree that part…of the Zohar was written by Rashbi [called] “the First Mishna”…[whilst] [t]he remainder of the Zohar, like the Talmud, was the product of generations of masters and their disciples.”
The beliefs of Kabbalah have been making a resurgence with the advent of the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles and its focus on its relation to religion in general and the Bible, while the Bible itself remains a fascinating source inquiry and inspiration.
The Kabbalah Centre of L.A. stresses that Kabbalah is not a religion itself. Rather, it can be seen as a supplement to other religious traditional practices. Believers of Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam can all benefit from learning about Kabbalistic philosophy.
The Kabbalah Centre also puts emphasis on Biblical facts and artifacts. These elements contribute to the importance of Kabbalistic teachings. Kabbalists mainly focus on the Biblical codes that they feel are explained in the Zohar. However, these codes have basis in Biblical fact. Kabbalists at the Kabbalah Centre in L.A. feel that they have a significant amount of knowledge to dispense to the general public, or anyone who wants to learn, regarding what they have to offer in terms of teachings.
The Bible continues to be a great source of knowledge and inspirational motivation for people even today. Many people revere the Bible for its wisdom in books like Proverbs. Other people enjoy learning about Noah and the flood in Genesis, or about Moses and the Pharaoh in Exodus. Whatever the reason, knowing more about Kabbalah and the Bible can be incredibly helpful in navigating life’s challenges. Visit the Kabbalah Centre’s website to learn more about locations and events.
