Should We Learn Kabbala?

Here is a shiur against the learning of Kabbala [or "Pnimiyus Hatorah"] for the masses. 

The Lubavitcher Rebbe was a very strong proponent of teaching Kabala to everyone. What is Tanya, Likkutei Torah and Torah Ohr [all by the Alter Rebbe] if not pure Kabala and those sefarim are basic staples of every Lubavitchers diet. 

Rav Moshe Schapiro ztz"l devoted a large percentage of his energies to spreading Pnimiyus Hatorah.

And there are many other examples. 

Here are some passages from the Rav ztz"l [and see the Gra on Mishlei 7/12]. 


OF COURSE a person must also spend tremendous energies on the revealed Torah....
