What is The Zohar?
The Zohar book is the holiest book in the Kabbalah. The Zohar is thought to have great mystical power and reading it is considered a virtue. The Zohar book is an important source of energy, protecting and blessing those who read it. The book is written in metaphors and tales, concealing more truths than revealing. The Zohar hold the secrets of creation and spiritual enlightenment. The Zohar’s main goal is to draw light from higher realms, and not just to bestow wisdom.
The Zohar – Then & Now
It is believed that the Zohar book was originated in the 2nd century. The Idra Rabba, a group of nine students and their Rabbi, Shimon bar Yochai, gathered in a cave near Meron where they studied the Torah. The book was concealed until the 13th century in Spain, because mankind was not spiritually mature enough to accept it at the time.
The Zohar book can be found today in the Kabbalah centre, and is considered one of the foundations of the Kabbalah. The Zohar is translated to many languages. Almost anyone who is interested in studying Kabbalah have heard or even read the Zohar.
