“So, Master Baal Shem Tov asked them, ‘How have you been able to go into the synagogue, such a holy place like that? How can you go in there?’” Because normally devils are not allowed to go in there. (Yes, Master.) They could not. They just cannot. “So, the two devils answered Him, ‘Oh, we could do that. We could go in there thanks to the man who reads the Torah, thanks to the man who leads the prayers.’”
“Now, so these high priests in that area had to invite Master Baal Shem Tov.” Baal Shem Tov, He’s very famous in Jewish folklore and spiritual stories.
“So, the Master, the venerated Master Baal Shem Tov came. He came with a secretary or maybe an assistant. And then He requested that they should let Him and His secretary stay in an abandoned house, but they should bring the two boys to Him. So, He and the secretary stayed in a wild, abandoned house. At that period of time, it was also the time of the weekly festival, weekly ritual, or celebration. Before everyone went to bed, the two devils appeared in front of the door. And then they began to make fun of the venerated Master Baal Shem Tov, (Oh, wow.) the way He read the Holy Torah on the Sabbath day.” (Yes.)
That’s the holy day. (Yes, Master.) Saturday. That day all the Jews don’t do anything except read the Torah or go to pray in the synagogue. Or do things that are holy, praying or gathering together and discussing the Torah, or anything to do with spirituality, (Yes, Master.) with God, with holy practice, not doing anything worldly. So that day, normally the Sabbath day you should not do anything at all except those related spiritual things or prayers.
“So, the venerated Master Baal Shem Tov was reading the Torah because it’s especially for the Sabbath day. And these two devils appeared at the front door and began to make fun of the way Master Baal Shem Tov was reading the Torah. So, Master Baal Shem Tov asked His secretary who was sitting on another bed, He said, ‘Did you see them as well?’ So, the secretary, of course, saw them, but he took the blanket and covered himself on the head and said, ‘Please leave me alone. Leave me in peace.’ The two little devils made fun of the venerated Master Baal Shem Tov. When they finished, they went toward the two boys.”
“Master Baal Shem Tov jumped out of the bed, and angrily asked them, ‘Hey, where do you think you are going?’ So, one of the devils said, ‘Is this your business here, what we’re doing?’ Because they were very arrogant and very disrespectful and rude because they were not afraid of Him at all. (Yes.) They thought they had big powers, so they were not afraid of Him. (Yes.) And then, they began to copy the way Master Baal Shem Tov read the Torah again, just to make fun of Him, and then they laughed together, the two of them. That was too much for Master Baal Shem Tov, so He just waved His hand one time.”
“Both of the devils fell down, (Wow.) fell ‘plonk’ on the floor. (That hurts.) And now they began to beg Him for compassion, for mercy, for benevolence, for magnanimity. ‘Please forgive us and let us go.’ The Master said, ‘But before everything, I want to let you see how I will heal these two boys.’”
“So, one of the devils said, ‘Oh, how lucky they are that You even came here to heal them, because we have already been destroying the inside of their organs, (Oh, gosh.) and we have already prepared that tonight we would kill them.’ (Wow.) They kind of praised Master Baal Shem Tov, and then they said, ‘It is so lucky that you came, otherwise, their organs have already begun to be ruined. And tonight we would have killed them, killed these two boys. So, lucky that You are here, that they might live.’”
“So, Master Baal Shem Tov asked them, ‘How have you been able to go into the synagogue, such a holy place like that? How can you go in there?’” Because normally devils are not allowed to go in there. (Yes, Master.) They could not. They just cannot. “So, the two devils answered Him, ‘Oh, we could do that. We could go in there thanks to the man who reads the Torah, thanks to the man who leads the prayers. He is a great playboy, (Oh, wow.) big time. Every time he led any of the holy books, he was just thinking only of how to say it, to sing it, so that it becomes very, very attractive.’”
One moment. Oh, nothing. Just rain, by me. I told you if we had pancakes, it would be good. But you don’t have rain there, so... And it’s not your Tuesday there and it’s not raining, so forget about it.
“Tuesday Pancakes” is in Europe. Do you have that in America and all that? (No, Master.) No? So where does “Tuesday Pancakes” come from? (Never heard of that one before.) Probably France. Where was I when I heard about that? “Tuesday Pancakes.” Maybe in England. Who cares? We don’t have any anyway. So it doesn’t serve us Tuesday, Wednesday, whatever. You eat whatever the kitchen gives, right? Tuesday or not. (Yes, Master.)
Do they cook well for you? (Very well. Yes, Master.) You’re happy? (Yes, we are.) I was kind of worried maybe you’re not used to the food. But it’s OK? You can try to cook something yourself if you don’t like it.
“‘So, because of him, because of this lead reader, we can go in there. Because he was always thinking about how to make it the most attractive so that all the women would like his up and down and melodious voice, so that he will have a chance to sin with them. (Oh.) But these women, they were also thinking of sinning with him as well. So, from this energy, from these thoughts of physical, sexual desires, both of us were born.’” (Wow.) No, it’s truly like that.
It’s not just a story. (Yes.) This story mentioned it, but it is a true thing. (Yes, Master.) That our energy will create something finally at the end, when the energy’s strong enough (Wow.) to manifest into something physical or almost physical, or even invisible or Astral Level type.
“‘Thus, both of us were born from this kind of energy and sexual desire and thinking. So, we are one male and one female.’” One male devil and one female devil. (Oh, right.) “‘We were born right inside that synagogue, (Oh, wow.) from that energy. Because every day or every so often, he goes there and he sings with his voice, and tries with all his might to charm the women, and the women were also mesmerized by it. (Wow.) Thus, this lowly energy and sexual unholy desire inside the synagogue became more and more built up.’ And so both these devils, one man, one woman, were born right in the middle of the synagogue.”
That’s why. (Yes, Master.) That’s why they were there. It’s not like they came in from outside. (Yes.) They were born inside there through this energy.
“After that, after hearing the two devils confess thus, the venerated Master Baal Shem Tov went out to look for an abandoned well, and then exiled them therein, telling them to stay inside there, inside that abandoned well, far away from anywhere that any humans inhabited.”
That’s it. The story ends. (Thank You, Master.)
