Daily Zohar # 4294 – Shelach Lecha – The Torah saves from judgments
Daily Zohar 4294
255. אָמַר, עַד כָּעֵת פָּחַדְתִּי, שֶׁהֲרֵינִי מִישִׁיבָה אַחֶרֶת, וְכָךְ אָמְרוּ לִי כְּשֶׁבַּעֲלֵי הַדִּין אָחֲזוּ בוֹ. אָמַר לוֹ, אַל תִּפְחַד בֵּן קָדוֹשׁ, כָּאן תִּהְיֶה בֵּינֵינוּ שִׁבְעָה יָמִים, וְתִתְרַחֵץ בְּכָל יוֹם מִטַּל הַקָּדוֹשׁ, וְאַחַר כָּךְ יַעֲלוּ אוֹתְךָ לְתוֹךְ אוֹתָהּ יְשִׁיבָה כִּשְׁאָר הַתִּינוֹקוֹת מִכָּאן.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Shimon cried. He told him, “Don’t cry, Holy Light, blessed is your portion, that because of you, even children quote hidden secrets in the Torah. I can tell you that when the yeshiva members heard that child’s voice enter their place like an arrow, everyone listened to him. At that moment, the head of the Yeshiva and all those before him were shocked. He said, who are they who do not leave the living God’s son and let him come in? He stood up and took hold of three pillars, which are the secret of the illumination of three lines, standing before the head of the Yeshiva, and the child entered. All the members of the Yeshiva gathered around him. The head of the Yeshiva said to him, tell your study. Holy son.
The child said, until now, I had fear because I was from a different yeshiva. And so they told me when the angels of judgment were holding me. He said to him, do not be afraid, holy son, here you will be among us for seven days, and you will bathe every day in the sacred dew, and then they will bring you into the Yeshiva of the other children.
The child quotes the study learned in the upper Yeshiva, and his words instantly reach the Yeshiva. The head of the Yeshiva had the Light of the Torah, the three lines that make Zeir Anpin, and the center column in front of him. He connected that Light to the child, and the hold of the angels of judgment was removed.
The Torah is Life, and the child was described as a son of the living God.
We should always remember this verse;
“עץ חיים היא למחזיקים בה ותומכיה מאושר:
“The Torah is the Tree of Life for those who cling to her, and her supporters are blessed.”
This and all pure Torah studies ‘activate’ Zeir Anpin to draw Light from the roots of Life in Binah and save us from ‘troubles.’ That is our best reason to study the Zohar every day and connect to Life.
