Daily Zohar # 3645 – Naso – Grapes, wine , and hair
126. בֹּא רְאֵה, שֶׁהֲרֵי לָמַדְנוּ מִסִּפְרוֹ שֶׁל רַב הַמְנוּנָא סָבָא, וְכָךְ הוּא: כָּתוּב גַּדֵּל פֶּרַע שְׂעַר רֹאשׁוֹ, צָרִיךְ שֶׁיִּתְרַבֶּה שְׂעַר רֹאשׁוֹ וּזְקָנוֹ, וְיִפְרֹשׁ מִיַּיִן וְשֵׁכָר וַעֲנָבִים, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁכֻּלָּם צַד שְׂמֹאל, וְהַשְּׂעָרוֹת לֹא תְלוּיוֹת. יַיִן – הָאֵם הָעֶלְיוֹנָה (בִּינָה). שֵׁכָר – צַד שֶׁאֲחוּזִים בּוֹ לְוִיִּם, וְיוֹצֵא מִיַּיִן עֶלְיוֹן, וְלֹא תָלוּי הַשֵּׂעָר. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ עוֹלִים הַלְוִיִּם לְאוֹתוֹ מָקוֹם, צָרִיךְ לְהַעֲבִיר כָּל שְׂעָרָם, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (במדבר ח) וְהֶעֱבִירוּ תַעַר עַל כָּל בְּשָׂרָם.
Continued from the previous study
The Nazirite is a person that wants to disconnect from all judgments. The secret is that the tree which Adam sinned with was a grapevine. That is on the left line of the Tree. Wine is on the Left of Binah. The intoxicating drink is on the Left of Zeir Anpin, and grapes, aspect of Malchut, gather everything from the higher levels. Because the grape is the tree that Adam sinned with.
The Nazirite supposed to conduct his action with purity and holiness and for that reason, he needs to disconnect completely from the Left.
In the book of Hamnuna Sava, we learned that the Nazirite should not cut his hair because the hair is not connected to the Left like wine and grapes.
“כָּל יְמֵי נֶדֶר נִזְרוֹ תַּעַר לֹא יַעֲבֹר עַל רֹאשׁוֹ עַד מְלֹאת הַיָּמִם אֲשֶׁר יַזִּיר לַיהוָה קָדֹשׁ יִהְיֶה גַּדֵּל פֶּרַע שְׂעַר רֹאשׁוֹ.”
“‘All the days of the vow of his separation no razor shall come upon his head; until the days are fulfilled for which he separated himself to YHVH, he shall be holy. Then he shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.”
The Levites that on the Left of Zeir Anpin need to remove the hair from their body when they connect with the Holy.
The Nazirite is on the Right and when he goes up, he needs the hair to connect to Binah.
“וְכֹה תַעֲשֶׂה לָהֶם לְטַהֲרָם הַזֵּה עֲלֵיהֶם מֵי חַטָּאת וְהֶעֱבִירוּ תַעַר עַל כָּל בְּשָׂרָם וְכִבְּסוּ בִגְדֵיהֶם וְהִטֶּהָרוּ.”
“Thus you shall do to them to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purification on them, and let them shave all their body, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.”
The Levite is on the Left and when he goes up to receive the Light of Chokmah on the Left he needs to remove his hair.
