Tikkun 52 – 3
Song of Songs 4:15
“מַעְיַן גַּנִּים, בְּאֵר מַיִם חַיִּים; וְנֹזְלִים, מִן-לְבָנוֹן”
“Thou art a fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and flowing streams from Lebanon”
The fountain is Keter and Chokmah that bring the light down to Binah and Zeir Anpin, the ‘gardens’ , which is the Torah with גן ‘garden’ , numerically 53 as the number of portions in the Torah. It is the well of life that is flowing from לְבָנוֹן ‘Lebanon’, which is another name to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Rabbi Shimon said that the Holy Temple is called in this name because the root of the word is לבן , ‘white’ as it cleanses the impurities of us.
The word also begins with לב, ‘heart’, as the first and last letter of the Torah.
Without the water of the Torah a man is considered as a ‘dry tree’ and his soul can not survive the final cleansing.
“רַק עֵץ אֲשֶׁר-תֵּדַע, כִּי-לֹא-עֵץ מַאֲכָל הוּא–אֹתוֹ תַשְׁחִית, וְכָרָתָּ;”
“Only the trees of which thou knowest that they are not trees for food, them thou mayest destroy and cut down”
Only the people that connect and draw the water of the Torah can bear fruits and have continuation in the world to come.
