Detail Description

Kabbalistic and Hasidic commentary to the Zohar by the Komarno Rebbe, R. Eliezer Zevi Safrin (1830-1898). R. Eliezer Zevi was born in Z'ydaczow to the son of the founder of the dynasty, R. Isaac Judah Jehiel Safrin (1806–1874) and includes many of his teachings in the commentary. His father maintained the idea of constant devekut ("devotion to G-d") which is integrated into the pattern of man's life even in acts performed merely for his survival. According to R. Safrin, devekut is a state of constant dialectic tension between the ego (Ani) and the divine mystic nothingness (Ayin). While aiming at self-denial and lack of consciousness, at the same time, one remains conscious of one's own identity and self. "Every man must be in the aspect of Ayin... and there [in the aspect of Ayin] at every moment the aspects of Ayin and Ani become one" (Nozer Hesed, 2 (1856).
