Higher Thinking At The Kabbalah Centre

The Kabbalah Centre is a religious organization that was founded in New York in nineteen sixty-five. The Centre was opened by Philip Berg and Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein by the name The National Research Institute of Kabbalah. The organization was predated of Yeshivah Kol Yehuda based in Israel, which was established in nineteen twenty-two. Following Brandwein’s death, Berg spent some time in Israel but then reopened the Centre with his wife Karen. The main headquarters of The Kabbalah Centre were moved to LA California in nineteen eighty-four, where it is still located today. There are, however, now more than fifty locations in cities around the world.

The Kabbalah was originally a tradition of Judaism past among only the most experienced priests. It was a set of mystical beliefs that helped to tie the practical law of the religion to the more mystical and spiritual aspects. The Kabbalah Centre still incorporates the old Jewish traditions but is not limited to only that. The organization incorporates aspects of other religions as well such as Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism.  The Kabbalah Center intends for the teachings to be understood as universal truths of the universe that can be applied along with any religion. Most of the root concepts of goodness can be applied to almost any religion. Rather than focusing on any particular god as being true or right it puts more focus on understanding the essence of god no matter what that god may be.

The Kabbalah Centre teaches techniques to reach beyond the small fraction of the universe available to the human senses. The progressive views of the Kabbalah Centre makes it a popular study among celebrities.

The Nature of Kabbalah And The Zohar

The Kabbalah is reported to be ancient Jewish mystical wisdom that reveals how the universe and the life in it actually work. This knowledge is reported to be over 5000 years old and the text that comprises the Kabbalah Centre set out in detail how the universe and life actually work. It’s also a roadmap on how we can each individually receive complete fulfillment. This fulfillment in no way means that we become temporarily happy or that we acquire a fleeting sense of well-being, it instead means that we can connect our being to the source of the universe’s energy and maintain true long term happiness.

This mystical knowledge came into being supposedly over 5000 years ago when a set of spiritual guides were communicated to humans during an instantaneous divine revelation. These revelations were thought to reveal all of life’s mysteries and in addition give humanity the code that governs our universe. Some advocates of this mysticism call it a phenomenal system of logic and technology that can even alter your view of life. The Kabbalah is composed of the Zohar which is a group of books that include commentary on the mystical aspects on the first 5 Books of Moses or the Torah also called the Pentateuch. For you gentiles, these books include the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy in the King James version of the Bible. The Zohar contains some extremely interesting aspects including the true nature of God, the origin and structure of our home, the universe, the true nature of the soul and the relationship between the energy of the universe and man.

The Zohar and consequently the Kabbalah is written in an obscure style of the Aramaic language. This language was the day to day language of Israel during the time of the second temple period which lasted from 539 BC – 70AD. In 70 AD, Jerusalem was completely destroyed as was the temple exactly as Jesus Christ had predicted to his apostles in his first coming.

The Kabbalah Centre is a nonprofit organization located in Los Angeles that offers courses in the Kabbalah’s teaching’s online as well as through its many worldwide study centers.

Traditional Judaic teaching has long believed that the secrets in the Kabbalah are so complex that study of it was to be discouraged without the student having a strong background in Jewish Law. Because of this, traditionalists have viewed centers like the Kabbalah Centre to be a perversion of this ancient tradition.
