All religions have ritual baths for removing impurities, but few realize the baths are symbolic of alchemy, the transmutation of sexual energy, and kundalini yoga. In fact, the Hebrew prayer used during the mikveh is a powerful mantra for the comprehension and elimination of our psychological defects. Learn about the Hebrew letters and words, Moses, meditation, willpower, the Tree of Life, and much more.

Recorded at the 2016 Meditation Retreat.

“Find this mysterious being called Who (מי Mi), and beyond him search in vain. But at the other extremity is another being known as What! (מה Mah). What distinguishes the one fromthe other? Who (מי Mi), the concealed and hidden One, is he whom all created beings are seeking to know, but after all their efforts and endeavors, by the gaining of knowledge, they only come at last to (מה Mah, the what). Then, what do we know, what understanding of him have we? What have we found out or discovered? Truly, all is mysterious, as at first, and מה( " ".Mah I take thee to witness מה" :this is what the scripture refers to where it is written Mah) (what) shall I liken thee to?" When the temple at Jerusalem was ravaged and destroyed there was heard a voice crying aloud: "What (מה Mah) shall I testify concerning thee? (Lamentations 2:13) “For from the beginning of creation have I testified to thee." Also, is it written: "I call heaven and earth this day to record.” (Deuteromomy 30:19) "(מה Mah) (what) shall be likened unto thee." "I will crown thee with crowns of holiness and make thee to rule over the world." So that it shall be said: "Is this the city called Beautiful, etc?" (Lamentations 2:15) “This is Jerusalem, the city most compacted in beauty." "(מה Mah) (what) shall equal thee?" That is, it shall ascend on high, where thou art sitting, and even as thou observest below, the holy people do not now enter the holy city; so I say unto thee I will not ascend there until the people have entered into thy walls below. Let this console and comfort thee. I will not ascend until, under the form of (מה Mah), I become like thee in all things. If the overflow of thy afflictions be like that of the sea, and if thou say there is no healing or remedy for thee, thou thinkest wrongly. (מי Mi) (who) shall heal thee? This is the highest scale of the mystery--the mystery of the being, upon whom dependeth all things. He shall heal and strengthen thee. (מי Mi) of the heavens above is the highest pole, (מה Mah) of the heavens below is the lower pole.” — Zohar
