Idra Raba: Chapter 16

The sixth Correction (formation)


Rabbi Yesa establishes this Correction (formation) as God's promise that His faithful love (Chesed) shall never depart from us. He talks about the inner Chesed, the light of Neshamah, and the external Chesed, the light of Ruach. That true kindness of Atik Yomin does not apply during the life of the body but rather to the life of the Neshamah.
