Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai
But, despite everything, the country was kept – the wisdom is still valued above commercialism, and was considered an honor to be a disciple sage, not a merchant. It was at that time in the sky shone a star of world history man predicted the future of the world. The man was Rashba – Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, a student of the prominent Kabbalist Rabbi Akiva and the author of the famous book "Zohar." It said about almost all Kabbalistic books, he is surrounded by many legends, his life is woven of secrets, but one thing is undeniable – his name has not disappeared in the mist of history, but rather referred to today, more and more frequently. And there's good reason. Already in his childhood Rashba worried questions never asked his peers.
"Who am I? Why do I live? How the world works? "- Constantly fiddling with it adults on these issues, and it was clear that the boy grows a special – he will not rest until he finds answers. In the future, and so happened. While his peers were busy with a simple study, Rashba delved into the study of Kabbalah. Days and nights on end it over the Kabbalistic books, getting them in depth, while for the Bible stories he did not open force that controls the world. Thus, removing layer after layer of outer integument with secret knowledge, he learned the meaning of life. His spirit died away from the drop-down in front of him indefinitely, and come to understand that without a teacher, no further progress.
