The Aramaic Zohar above translated into Hebrew below
Tikkun 24 – 6
Song of Songs 6:11
“אֶל-גִּנַּת אֱגוֹז יָרַדְתִּי, לִרְאוֹת בְּאִבֵּי הַנָּחַל; לִרְאוֹת הֲפָרְחָה הַגֶּפֶן, הֵנֵצוּ הָרִמֹּנִים ”
“I went down into the garden of nuts, to look at the green plants of the valley, to see whether the vine budded, and the pomegranates were in flower.”
The ‘Garden of Nuts’ is the aspect of the light inside everything in Malchut.
By breaking the Klipah meaning, the shell, we reveal the light which is the energy of life and continuation. If the light is not revealed on time, the Klipah consumes it and transforms itself to death.
On Shabbat we can reveal the light of the Shechinah because it’s going out of its shell, which is Malchut, to unify with the supernal light.
The circumcision has a similar aspect. The four steps in removing the foreskin breaks the klipa of the body to let the child connect to the light.
This Klipah is formed by the first Sin and has brought mortality on us. It was the first sin that was done before the first Shabbat and the circumcision is the first tikkun we do in the physical world to correct it. This process is done after the new born passes the first Shabbat of his life.
