Daily Zohar # 1784 – Zohar Pesach – The power of the the Haggadah
From Zohar Bo paragraphs 179-182
“וְהִגַּדְתָּ לְבִנְךָ, בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא לֵאמֹר: בַּעֲבוּר זֶה, עָשָׂה יְהוָה לִי, בְּצֵאתִי, מִמִּצְרָיִם.”
“”You shall tell your son on that day, saying, ‘It is because of what YHVH did for me when I came out of Egypt.’”
The main process of the Pesach Seder is the reading of the Haggadah. The literal meaning is “to tell”.
Telling the story of the first Redemption is our obligation. We need to tell about the miracles of the time we left Egypt with joy and happiness. The Zohar reveals that when we say the Haggadah, the Holy One Blessed be He, assembles his forces above to listen to the story and praises that comes below and that increases the power of the master above.
God commanded us to tell the story every year (Exodus 13:10) “You shall therefore keep this statute at its appointed time from year to year.”.
When we tell the story every year at the same time it happened in the past we maintain the connection to the energy that was revealed on that day. The act of telling about the miracles and the freedom creates the proper vessel that we need to draw the light of Redemption and complete freedom.
The prophet Micha revealed that the Final Redemption will be similar to that of Egypt.
“כִּימֵי צֵאתְךָ, מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם, אַרְאֶנּוּ, נִפְלָאוֹת.”
“”As in the days when you came out from the land of Egypt, I will show you miracles.””
God wants us to keep the connection to the light of the Redemption. Our main goal in life is to break out of slavery to the material world and enjoy freedom and fulfilment without the correction process.
Most of us start the Seder and are immediately thinking about the meal. This coming Seder we should focus on the Haggadah so we can be part of the vessel that draws the light of the Final Redemption.
