1330 The BrokenVessels of Creation

1330 EG

The Kabbalist Isaac Luria postulated that the universe is filled with Divine sparks (nitzozoth) that were spread across the universe at the time of creation, when vessels were burst (shevirat hakaylim) by the overpowering light of creation, releasing untold numbers of sparks which became the source of creation as we know it. It is our primary task in life to free these sparks from the husks (klipot) in which they are contained. The release of the holy sparks results from good deeds, acts of loving kindness, charity, and clean living. (also see: 1322, 1310 and 1312)
