Tikkun 69 – 78
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ”
“And God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”
After God finished with all the details of Creation he did the last action before ‘resting’. He created man. This is a testimony that everything was created for the purpose of man.
“Man”, in Hebrew is“אדם”, “Adam” and it has the Numerical value of 45, same as the name of God at the level of Zeir Anpin יוד-הא-ואו-הא. In Kabbalah, this name is called name of מַה, representing the extended power of the Creator.
Zeir Anpin is the ‘son’ that comes from the Father, Chokmah and the Mother, Binah.
Chokmah represents the world of אצילות Atzilut (Emanation),
Binah represents the world of בריאה B’riah (Creation),
Zeir Anpin represents the world of יצירה Yetzirah (Formation)
and Malchut is the world of עשיה Asiah (Action)
The Zohar in this section, talks about two men; one is on a higher level and one lower. The first man מה is the one that came out of Adam Kadmon, which is the first emanated world but considered as the light of the Endless.
The lower man, מה, is from the world of Yetzirah.
“מַה-שְּׁמוֹ וּמַה-שֶּׁם-בְּנוֹ”, “What (מַה) is his name, and what (מַה) is his son’s name”
Exodus 3:13 (Moses is talking to God about his mission to take the Israelites out of Egypt)
“וְאָמְרוּ-לִי מַה-שְּׁמוֹ, מָה אֹמַר אֲלֵהֶם”
“and they shall say to me: What (מַה) is His name? What (מַה) shall I say unto them ”
The doubles of מַה in these verses tell us that the forces of the Creator were made for us, as the children of God.
The three drops are the three letters Yod that came out of Adam Kadmon and are revealed in the name יוד-הי-ואו-הי that represents Binah, סג, the world of יצירה , Creation, that everything comes from.
