55. Haman from the Torah, from Where

I heard on Shevat 16, February 13, 1941

Haman from the Torah, from where? “Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” (Genesis 3:11). We must understand what is the connection between Haman and Etz ha Daat (Tree of Knowledge). Etz ha Daat is considered the state of greatness of reception, which is not in Kedusha (Sanctity) and must be brought into the Kedusha through corrections.

The discernment of Haman is also the state of greatness of reception, as it is written, that Haman said, “Whom would the king delight,” the King of the world, “to honor besides myself?” It means that it is discerned as the state of greatness of reception, and this is discerned as, “And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the Lord.”
