The traditional approach is not always what is called for in the 21st century when students look for the best way of understanding the inner workings of the universe and great creator; instead, many people want to take what is now referred to as a new age approach to mysticism over the traditional forms of religious teachings. Kabbalah has always been seen as offering a different path to those handed out by teachers in the main traditional religions of the world that can be explored in a way that does not require the student to convert or learn to speak a specific language.
Over the course of the 20th century the teachings of Kabbalah evolved through the work of a number of teachers from a background in Judaism to provide a new way of looking at the work that is different to many other versions. The Kabbalah Centre can trace its roots back to the 1920s when a series of U.S. based locations were opened to provide spiritual guidance based on this ancient scripture; the translation of the holy work known as the Zohar began in the early 20th century and was continued by The Kabbalah Centre founder Rabbi Philip Berg through the 1960s.
Where This Religion Centre differs from many of its contemporaries is the fact the Zohar has been translated to English in a way that is easily read and understood by almost everybody. Major celebrities, such as Madonna have made their way to The Kabbalah Centre as they look for a more fulfilled way of living their lives despite achieving international success. The Kabbalah Centre has spread its reach around the world as its approach allows people of different faiths to interpret the Zohar in a way that fits into their personal belief system.
Kabbalah itself has often been hidden from the majority of people as it seeks to explain the rules of the universe that reveal how the world is affected by different aspects of life. Those who remain ignorant of Kabbalah are often seen as sad and unfulfilled, just as those who learn the teachings of Kabbalah can be seen as fulfilled on a physical and spiritual level.
