Rabbi Echa and Rabbi Yudai were walking on the way. When they saw Rabbi Aba comes toward them, they said; here is a man that has wisdom with him, let us welcome the face of the Shechina. As the came close to him, he stopped and came down of his ‘vehicle’.
Rabbi Aba was on a very high level and always with the Light. On that state, the Shechinah is with him at all time. The two wise rabbis saw rabbi Aba with the Shechina and were happy to meet him and study from him.
When the Zohar says that Rabbi Aba came down from his ‘vehicle’, it means that he came down to their level so they can study together.
“וַיְהִי קוֹל הַשֹּׁפָר, הוֹלֵךְ וְחָזֵק מְאֹד; מֹשֶׁה יְדַבֵּר, וְהָאֱלֹהִים יַעֲנֶנּוּ בְקוֹל”
“When the sound of the trumpet (Shofar) grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and God answered him with thunder.”
This verse from the event of the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.
The sound of the Shofar is Tiferet, Zeir Anpin, Central Column and the Shofar is Binah. In the future, the end of the exile would be announced with the sound of the Shofar that revealed the Light that would release us from slavery to the process of the material world.
The sound of the Shofar breaks the Klipot that drive our desires for the material world and its pleasures.
The sound of the Shofar on Mount Sinai revealed the light of Binah that nullifies the Klipot and all aspects of negativity and impurities. It removed all aspects of ‘slavery’ from them. The Israelites’ new state of purity made them immortal.
“ וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּירוּשָׁלִָם”
“And in that day a great Shofar will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship YHVH on the holy mountain at Jerusalem”
The Final Redemption would be announced with the sound of the Shofar that would remove all ‘shackles’ from the Israelites and they all will turn to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to receive the new revelation of Light in the world.
Paragraph #86 would be in the next DZ study.
