This Is the Law of the Burnt-Offering

1) “Command Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the law of the burnt-offering.’” This burnt-offering elevates and connects the assembly of Israel above, and its Dvekut [adhesion] with the next world, Bina, thus making everything one, in one connection, in joy. And because it rises up to Bina, it is written, “This is the law,” male and female together, ZA and Malchut, written Torah and oral Torah, rising in love to Bina, since “this” is Malchut, the oral Torah, and “law” is ZA, the written Torah.

2) When the north side awakens, Gevura de [of] ZA, the left line, it is written, “His left is under my head,” meaning that Malchut receives from the left line of ZA. Then the Malchut rises with love and crowns in the right of ZAHesed, and connects in the middle line, in the middle line of ZATifferet de ZA, and everything shines from within the holy of holies, Bina. This is from within man, by the will of the priests, the right line, and with a prayer of Israel, the middle line, and the song of the Levites, the left line.

3) A burnt-offering is the holy of holies, the upper RuachBina, since three Ruchot [plural of Ruach] are tied together in the offering:

A) The lower Ruach is called “the spirit of holiness,” Malchut.

B) The Ruach in the middle is called “the spirit of Hochma and Bina [wisdom and understanding], ZA, a son to Hochma and Bina. Also, it is called the lower Ruach, since it is lower compared to Bina. However, this Ruach comes out of the Shofar [horn] that consists of fire and water.

C) The upper Ruach is hidden in secret, Bina, and all the holy Ruchot exist in it. Also, all the Panim [faces] shine from it and hence the burnt-offering returns to the actual Ruach.

4) Afterwards, the external ones are satiated and settle for the beast that is offered, to connect another Ruach [spirit/wind] in Kedusha [holiness], which is within them, inside the impurity, through the tallow and the fat that they sacrifice. For this reason, the offering is the holy of holies. The rest of the sacrifices are to make peace in the whole world, from several sides, and to remove the litigants in the world and illuminate out of the desire to be perfumed. They are called “light holies” [as in light-weight] because they are not crowned above in the holy of holies, which is Bina. Hence, they are light holies and their slaughter is in any place. However, an offering that is the holy of holies is not as the rest of the sacrifices, for all its deeds are holiness.

5) “And the priest shall put on his linen garment.” These are special garments for Kedusha [holiness]: Bad [cloth/linen], like Badad [alone/isolated], which is dedicated to Kedusha. It is written, “And he shall bathe his flesh in water and wear them.” Holy is the holy of holies, when everything rises and crowns in the holy of holies, Bina, in one connection. Afterwards, the spirit of impurity, which defiles everything, passes away and does not govern or approach the Temple. It passes from all the sides of Kedusha and everything remains only in holiness.
