(Hebrew קבלה) Alternatively spelled Cabala, Qabalah from the Hebrew קבל KBLH or QBL, “to receive.” An ancient esoteric teaching hidden from the uninitiated, whose branches and many forms have reached throughout the world. In essence, Kabbalah provides a langauge, structure, or map through which we can begin to understand reality, and therefore all philosophies, religions, sciences, and arts are attempts to express Kabbalah, each in its own way, at its own level, and relative degree of purity. Where it is impure is where we find argument, disagreement, fanaticism, mistakes, etc. The root of Kabbalah is the science and language of the superior worlds and is thus objective, complete and without flaw; it is said that “All enlightened beings agree,” and their natural agreement is a function of the awakened consciousness. The Kabbalah is the language of that consciousness, thus disagreement regarding its meaning and interpretation is always due to the subjective elements in the psyche.

"The objective of studying the Kabbalah is to be skilled for work in the Internal Worlds... One that does not comprehend remains confused in the Internal Worlds. Kabbalah is the basis in order to understand the language of these worlds." —Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah

"In Kabbalah we have to constantly look at the Hebrew letters." —Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"The one who does not know how to fulfill his duties as a simple citizen cannot tread the path of the great mysteries. Many disciples forget the good manners of a sincere and honorable gentleman or lady and become truly irresponsible and even dangerous individuals."
