Tikkun 21 – 46
This is the secret of Isaiah 54:12 “ וְשַׂמְתִּי כַּדְכֹד שִׁמְשֹׁתַיִךְ”
“and I will put כַּדְ כֹד your luminaries”
כד is 24 and it means pitcher, a vessel. The deeper meaning of this verse from Isaiah prophecy is that when the time comes, the Light, YHVH will fill up the vessel in equality.
Isaiah 30:26 “וְהָיָה אוֹר-הַלְּבָנָה, כְּאוֹר הַחַמָּה, וְאוֹר הַחַמָּה יִהְיֶה שִׁבְעָתַיִם, כְּאוֹר שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים”
“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of the seven days”
In previous daily Zohar we explained the first part of the Shema prayer with the 25 letters, those we recite morning and evening to bring the light. The next 24 letters are
“בָּרוּךְ שֵׁם כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד”.
“Blessed be the name of his glory forever and ever”
The word כד is the code for the vessel in Malchut and the presence of the Shechina that supports us in holding the light in balance.
We have 24 letters in the morning and 24 in the evening. These words wrap the Light of the Shema in complete and balanced circuit to reveal the light in Malchut.
On the night of Shavuot, we read from all 24 books of the Bible and in each book there is a pair of letters that are called “decoration of the bride”. The Bride is the Shechina and the 24 pairs are the connection to the Bible that reveal the light in Malchut.
24×2 = 48 and it is the value for מח, which means brain. It is the tool and conduit to receive and channel the light from the supernal levels.
That special connection to the 48 letters gives us the highest level of light from the Tree of Life and guarantees protection from harm until Rosh Hashanah.
