[plural of ''sefirah''] In Jewish mysticism, the '''''sefirot''''' are the ten aspects of God’s being that manifest from ''Ein Sof''. ''Ein Sof'' (literally, “without end”) is the term used to describe God prior to creation. ''Ein Sof'' is usually translated as “the Infinite.” It is the ultimate reality, the First Cause: unmanifest, incomprehensible, imperceptible and indescribable—the “divine nothingness.”
The ''sefirot'' are names which God gave to himself, each part of himself having a specific name with a specific vibration that we could access through the universal “computer” of the mind of God. The ''sefirot'' bridge the gap between the finite creation and the infinite God.
