Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Tome that can teach US ALL How to Conquer Anxiety and Live with Tranquility!

Chapter Four, Part Forty-seven: opens by concluding the ideas introduced in the previous Episode “FOR THE REWARD.” That serves as the natural segue into the primary novelty of this new Episode entitled: “WHAT HAPPENS IN PARADISE?”

Having already (albeit briefly) addressed the idea of Consequences and Remuneration in “This World,” we shift our focus onto the concept of Punishment and Reward in the Afterlife, or Olam Haba (the “Next World”).

In sharp contrast to the consequences described in the “Here and Now” when it comes to Gan Eden (Paradise, or Heaven) surprisingly enough the Torah doesn’t even mention it once!

That’s not an exaggeration, there literally isn’t a single explicit reference in the entire Chumash of spiritual reward in the afterlife. Not even once! This fact, obviously begs the obvious question: Why the deafening silence on Heaven?

In this Episode, Rabbainu Bachaya will first present us with the first of seven possible reasons for this glaring omission.

Although we will not be directly addressing the actual subject of Bitachon, this issue requires full clarification before we are able to move on and properly discuss the next incredibly important Trust dimension.

The forty-seventh study segment of the Fourth Chapter of “Shaar HaBitachon” comprises the 120th consecutive video about learning how to Build Trust in G-d to Conquer Anxiety. Forever!
