Hebrew translation:

74. אָמְרוּ לוֹ, אוֹתוֹ אָדָם יוֹדֵעַ בַּתּוֹרָה? אָמַר לָהֶם, לֹא, הוּא זָקֵן, וְלֹא יוֹדֵעַ לְבָרֵךְ אֶת הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא, וְיֵשׁ לוֹ בָּנִים, וְלֹא שָׂם אוֹתָם בְּבֵית הָרַב. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, (אִם לֹא כָּךְ הָיָה) אִם לֹא הָיָה כָּךְ, הָיִיתִי נִכְנָס לַכְּפָר הַזֶּה לְדַבֵּר עָלֶיךָ. עַכְשָׁו אָסוּר לָנוּ לִרְאוֹת אֶת פָּנָיו, זְרֹק מִמְּךָ אֶת הַחֲמוֹר, וְאַתָּה לֵךְ אֵלֵינוּ. אָמְרוּ לוֹ, מִי אָבִיךָ? אָמַר, רַבִּי זְעֵירָא מִכְּפָר רָאמִין.
75. שָׁמַע רַבִּי יְהוּדָה וּבָכָה. אָמַר, אֲנִי הָיִיתִי בְּבֵיתוֹ, וְלָמַדְתִּי מִמֶּנּוּ שְׁלֹשָׁה דְבָרִים בְּכוֹס שֶׁל בְּרָכָה, וְלָמַדְתִּי מִמֶּנּוּ שְׁנַיִם בְּמַעֲשֵׂה בְרֵאשִׁית. אָמַר רַבִּי יִצְחָק, וּמָה מֵהַיֶּלֶד הַזֶּה בְּנוֹ לָמַדְתִּי, מִמֶּנּוּ לֹא כָּל שֶׁכֵּן? הָלְכוּ וְאָחֲזוּ בְיָדוֹ. רָאוּ שָׂדֶה אֶחָד וְיָשְׁבוּ שָׁם. אָמְרוּ לוֹ, אֱמֹר דָּבָר אֶחָד מֵאוֹתָם שֶׁלִּמֵּד אוֹתְךָ אָבִיךָ בְּמַעֲשֵׂה בְרֵאשִׁית.

Zohar Shemini

Continued from previous DZ
#74
The man I live with is ignorant of Torah, doesn’t make blessings nor send his sons to Torah school. Rabbi Yehuda says that if it wasn’t so, he would have gone into that village to talk to this man on behalf of the child. Now that they know about him, he cannot even see his face.
Rabbi Yehuda tells the child to let go of the donkey and walk with them. To their question the child said that his father’s name was Rabbi Zeira from Ramin village.

Lesson:
The word for ‘face’ in Hebrew ‘פנים’ also means ‘inner’. The face of a person reflects his inner energy and soul. If one look into a face of a negative person he connects with the inner energy of that person and can get spiritually contaminated. Kabbalists are careful in avoiding looking at negative people, situation or anything that may affect their souls or consciousness.

#75
Rabbi Yehuda heard the name or Rabbi Zeira, cried and said, ‘I was in his home and learned from him three things about the cup of blessings’, also two things about the process of Creation. Rabbi Yitzhak and Rabbi Yehuda held the child’s hands and walked until they saw a field and sat there. They asked the child to tell them one thing from what his father taught him related to the work of Creation.
