Kabbalah is a unique brand of spiritualism that is gaining popularity in the United States and beyond. It is based on interpretations of ancient Judaism however the Kabbalah philosophy maintains many aspects that are unique unto itself.
Kabbalah spiritual leaders base their belief on a text called The Book of Formation, which they claim is a secret text written 5,000 years ago. It is described as a guide, sharing philosophies and methods of thought that help followers perceive the true nature of the universe and an individuals place in it.
The main text of the Kabbalah is devoted to deciphering the teaching of the Torah. These are the ancient writings that have made up the basis of the Jewish faith for centuries. These same writings, or variations on them, also comprise a significant section of the Christian Old Testament. Study of the Kabbalah was originally highly restricted, allowed only to priests and educated, scholarly men of a certain status within the Jewish community.
Only recently has this document been made available to the public. The Kabbalah Centre is devoted to spreading the teaching of the Kabbalah to all people regardless of race or religion. The organization states that while the text originated as part of ancient Judaism, it’s teaching are of a more spiritual nature and not specific to any denomination or religious hierarchy.
The organization was founded by Rav, or teacher, Yehuda Ashlag in the year 1922. Kabbalah Centers now exist in location all across the globe, making their teachings available to those with an interest. Centers work to provide scholarships and opportunities to those who want to study Kabbalah and use it’s teaching to better their lives or the lives of others.
The goal of their teachings is to provide nothing less than a sense of purpose and life-long fulfillment that will drive followers to fulfill their greatest ambitions. Kabbalah teachings say this sense of fulfillment can be achieved by utilizing their teaching to connect with the energy, life, and light of the universe.
The result is a life of happiness and achievement, immune to frustrating ups and downs. It’s principles are apparently universal and apply to all aspects of life both physical and spiritual. Visit the Kabbalah Centre on their website to learn more about their locations and events.
