A Letter by Rabbi Yehdah Lev Ashlag on why the soul comes into the body

Why the soul incarnates: A letter by Rabbi Ashlag

by yedidah on August 27, 2012


Many of us wonder why we are here at all? Why did the soul, so perfect and pure, come into this troubled and difficult existence, into this temporal body, which is destined to die, and into a conflict with our ego which is an integral and God-given part of us also. What did the soul have to gain? In a remarkable letter written by Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag we learn that the sojourn of the soul in this body and in this world is incredibly precious as it is here that God can manifest His Names and it is precisely here that that the soul can realize a much greater potential than it could whilst in the higher spiritual realms

I love your new site, Yedidah! The podcasts and posts are so uplifting, and when I see them arrive in my inbox I can feel a breath of fresh air, like a breeze from above, even before I listen. What a lovely way to bring your books to life online for us all. Thanks so much!
