Core Texts of the Hasidic Masters, Part 16 of 43. In this continuation of class six, Schachter-Shalomi discusses the Animal Soul, after which he tells a story of Dov Baer, the son of Shneur Zalman of Liadi. He then speaks of the levels of the soul before entering into a longer discussion of the sefirot (Divine attributes), especially the upper three---Hokhmah ('wisdom'), Binah ('understanding'), and Da'at ('knowledge')---as related to the physical brain. This is followed by a discussion of the three garments of the soul (thought, word, and deed)---which may be positive, neutral, or negative---and the power of investment.
