The question...

Are all the answers available on the internet?
I have questions about life and I do not know where to look for the answers. The easiest thing to do is simply sit at home, log in to the internet and find the sites that can offer me some quiet contemplation. Anyone know about the study of Kabbalah online - and more importantly, whether it can help understand life?

The Light Center of Kabbalah

The Kabbalah can bring light into one's life. The light of spirituality and warmth of a quality life. There are so many lessons to be learned from religion and spiritual topics, that it is wonderful to see the increased interest in improving and growing oneself. The Kabbalah Centers across the world have seen great successes in getting the masses to attend their various activities and it is the beauty of them trying to improve people's lives with the light of the Kabbalah that has certainly added to the appeal and achievements of the Kabbalah Centre.

Kabbalah centers on Zohar

A bunch of my friends have told me that the central text of the Kabbalah is the Zohar. This is an ancient work written by a Jewish Sage over 1800 years ago, and it forms the basis for the Kabbalah.

The problem is that this text is in Hebrew, or even worse, Aramaic - so there is no way to understand. The good thing is that if you are looking for anything today, you simply go and online and research it. There aren't any translations that I know of, but places like the Kabbalah Center (The one with Rav Berg and his wife Karen and his kids Michael and Yehuda Berg) offer classes in English on Kabbalah.

So, Kabbalah centers on the Zohar and other foreign language texts, but there are people - like at the Kabbalah Centre - who will do the work of translating and explaining it.
