Tikkun 28 – 1
בְּרֵאשִׁי”ת, “in the beginning”, contains three precepts. One is ‘Awe of YHVH’ that comes from the permutation, יְרָ”א בֹּשֶׁ”, ‘Awe’, ‘Fear’ of shame. Second is circumcision that comes from, בְּרִי”ת אֵ”שׁ, “covenant/circumcision of fire”.
Third is the precept of Shabbat. It comes from שַׁבָּ”ת יָרֵ”א, “Shabbat Awe/fear”.
On the first one it said in Isaiah 33:6
“יִרְאַת יְהוָה, הִיא אוֹצָרוֹ ”,
“the awe of YHVH is his treasure ”
Also in Proverbs 1:7 “יִרְאַת יְהוָה, רֵאשִׁית דָּעַת ”
“The awe of YHVH is the beginning of knowledge (Da’at)”. Also in Psalms 111:10 “ רֵאשִׁית חָכְמָה, יִרְאַת יְהוָה ”, “The awe of YHVH is the beginning of wisdom (Chokmah)”
Here we learn that without ‘Awe’ of YHVH, which is the treasure, we can not connect to Chokmah, wisdom.
The treasure is the letter Bet, ב, as the word בְּרֵאשִׁי”ת reveals to us, בְּ-רֵאשִׁי”ת, meaning ב of “the beginning of…”. In another place of Tikunei Zohar it says that the letter ב of בְּרֵאשִׁי”ת is the ‘lock’ and the origin of the Torah and it comes from the palace of the Creator.
Song of Songs 4:12
“גַּן נָעוּל, אֲחֹתִי כַלָּה; גַּל נָעוּל, מַעְיָן חָתוּם”
“The garden (גַּן) is shut up (locked), my sister, my bride; Wave (גַּל) is shut (locked), a spring sealed ”
The garden is the written Torah with 53 portions as the numerical value of גַּן ‘Garden’.
גַּל is the root for ‘גלוי’, meaning revealment and is the aspect of the oral Torah. The spring is the actual light of the Torah and it is sealed.
We have the source of all and that is the Torah. The secrets that can be revealed is the oral Torah and the study of the Zohar.
In order to break the seal on the spring and let the light flow, we need to use the Zohar. It is the only powerful key to unlock the knowledge (Da’at) of the Torah and reveal its light in the world.
