The Idea of Tikkun (3)

There are countless citations of Tikkun in the Zohar and (needless to say) in the Tikkunei Zohar, most of which clearly refer to as remedies for this or that, or to rectifications of sins, cleavages, or various acts of spiritual destruction. But the term was most especially fleshed out in Kabbalistic and Chassidic literature, where Tikkun refers to repairs made since the Shevira process (which is the subject here in Klach), and to either individual or universal full-actualization, and redemption. We’ll now see what Ramchal says about it here in this section.
