Purim: the light of redemption

A Megillah.: the Book of Esther

The essence of Purim is its light. The Sages teach us that it is on the festival of Purim when the Jews were saved from total destruction that the light of redemption shines out the strongest.
We connect with this light by reading the Megillah, the book of Esther, having a festive meal and giving presents of food to our friends and gifts to the poor.
Celebrating also means finding the elements of the story within ourselves.
Finding the Mordecai (and the Haman) inside oneself and really celebrating the light of Purim!
From the Kabbalah of Rabbi Ashlag
