Welcome to this introduction to Binah. On the Tree of Life Binah is sephirah 3 and known as Understanding.
In Chesed we go in Search of the Truth. In Binah we strive to Understand the Purpose of Life and the meaning of Sorrow.
The Spiritual Experience of Binah is: A Vision of Sorrow and yet without Sorrow, we could not fully appreciate Joy.
In this sephirah, at the top of the black pillar of Form, we explore the Principles of Sound and learn more about the dual role of the Universal Mother:
Aima – the bright, fertile Mother of Creation
Ama – the dark, sterile Mother of the Underworld
It is in Binah that we examine the roots of our Faith and look deeper into the Four Worlds and extended Tree of Life. We also discover effective techniques to Discipline and Silence the Conscious Mind so we may listen and respond to the call of the Spiritual Mother who watches over her children.
The Binah workbook is the ninth one in this series of practical Qabalah and Tree of Life books. In this workbook we examine the Roots of our Faith, and look deeper into the Four Worlds and extended Tree of Life.
