Nenad Popovic is a Bosnian refugee living on a disability pension. He had been interested in learning about Kabbalah for years, but it was not until he connected with the Kabbalah Scholarship Fund that his studies could really begin.
Since Michael Berg launched Kabbalah University scholarships earlier this year, The Kabbalah Centre has received an outpouring of gratitude from around the world. Both new and continuing students have written to express their thanks. For many, it’s difficult to convey with language what a positive impact Kabbalah University has made on their lives:
Jose Esteban Nuñez of Venezuela shares, “There are not words enough to thank all the donors who are helping to have these wonderful classes and seminars available for us.”
Elizabeth Portugal from Mexico writes, “I have no words to say thank you for sharing the wisdom of Kabbalah on my spiritual journey. Kabbalah is for me the manifestation of the Light in my life, and I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”
And in South Africa, Motshabi Sekhoane wonders, “Where do I start? First of all, I would like to thank the donors that sacrificed for us as students in making sure we could have this great opportunity of studying Kabbalah. I personally have no words to describe what Kabbalah has done for me. I cannot even begin to think how I survived all these years without it.”
In addition to 'thank', one word we see over and over again in these testimonies is 'sharing'. Scholarship recipients not only thank donors for sharing Kabbalah with them, but time and again they also indicate a desire to share Kabbalah with others in turn:
Rita Nobi from Hungary tells us, “With all the lectures of Kabbalah University my life has changed for the better in every possible way… I hope that via my small donations, one day someone else will also have the opportunity to study Kabbalah.”
Andrew Velasco from Colombia says, “I want to thank the Kabbalah Centre and its donors for the opportunity given to us in spiritual growth. Be sure that the Light is expanding to more lives and their circles of influence, and that this opportunity will be replicated to others.”
And Furaha Ebalo is so inspired she wants to share with all of Tanzania. “Since I have been benefiting from Kabbalah University Scholarship, I have acquired enough wisdom that I have started sharing Kabbalah with my friends, who in turn have shown their interest with the Light revealed to them. Many people here are ready to receive much Light and we have proposed to open a branch of Kabbalah Centre in Tanzania.”
As the kabbalists teach, sharing begets sharing.
This was exactly the thought behind offering students in need free online access to courses like Power Of Kabbalah, Zohar Class, and Ten Luminous Emanations. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the program has so far granted 2,500 life-changing scholarships to grateful students in India, Turkey, Kenya, Iran, New Zealand, Japan, Venezuela, and the United States.
