Tikkun 70 – 8
The first 6 letters of the 42 letter name known as Ana B’Koach are אבגיתץ. In addition to the previous study of the first letter, Alef, the Zohar here, brings another aspect of that special letter.
The Alef is the aspect of God that is hidden from all that he created. This letter also represents אדירירון, an angel under whom there is a minister with a name אדיר אדירים. It means ‘great of the greats’. Under his government אתניה, a name that is concealed in the verse from Numbers 24:21 “אֵיתָן, מוֹשָׁבֶךָ, וְשִׂים בַּסֶּלַע, קִנֶּךָ ” “Though firm (אתניה) be thy dwelling-place, and though thy nest (קִנֶּךָ) be set in the rock ”
Proverb 8:22 “ יְהוָה–קָנָנִי, רֵאשִׁית דַּרְכּוֹ: קֶדֶם מִפְעָלָיו מֵאָז”
“YHVH made me (קָנָנִי) as the beginning of His way, the first of His works of old.”
The word קִנֶּךָ,’Your nest קנ’, implies to Chokmah and Binah and connect the Alef to the second letter ב, Bet. The spelling of this letter is בית , which means ‘dwelling-place’, ‘house’.
The Ana B’Koach starts with the letters Alef and Bet that represent the concealed and the revealed. The Alef ‘dwells’ inside the Bet. The first letter of the Torah is Bet and it appears in larger size than the other letters. This is an indication for us that there is a higher connection to Binah and it also concealed Alef, that is the essence of the Creator.
When we meditate with the Ana B’Koach we should give special attention to the first three letters. They are the first three of the Hebrew letters and include the seed of Creation from the concealed level to the revealed.
