D.Z. SwitzerlandThe Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna
I started reading and studying your new book [The Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna]. Not only is difficult to stop reading it, but honestly I experience the same feeling of awe that comes from reading the works by the Ramchal [R’ Moshe Chayim Luzzato]. Chazak u’Baruch!
No need to reply—this is just a thank you for your site—(from the “near Antarctic” South Pacific). I have found so much wonderful material in your writings.
M.K.City of Luz
Dear Mr Bakst,
I am writing to thank you for a wonderful web site. I am a 53 year old homemaker who recently discovered your teachings. I must admit I strain to understand what I’m reading, however, what I do comprehend is so wonderful! Your “City of Luz” site brings so much joy and light into my life. I have read Torah and Tanakh at least 5x’s in my life and now am able to understand what I’ve been missing all these years. I suppose it would help if I spoke Hebrew, but since I do not your writings are so very meaningful to me. Though I was born of a Jewish mother I was not raised in a religious home I have always wanted to understand the ways of G-d, and your teachings help me with that. My quest began at 21 years of age and now here I am engrossed in your writing. I look forward to reading everyday again. I want to thank you for your devotion and hard work!
Shalom and May Hashem continue to bless you!
S. P.Secret Doctrine Class
I have been reading the text and following the Secret Doctrine class for the past few weeks. I’m really enjoying it. The whole thing seems to click with me. I have started to include the techniques from class into my daily meditation. The tubular model you described yesterday is great. Using it, I can see how to visualize the inversion of the screen back into the pineal projector.
Many thanks. S. P.
