Printer-friendly versionSend to friendPDF version





Sefer Yetzirah teaches that there are
Three Mother Letters (Primary Letters) -
Aleph א, Mem מ and Shin ש.  

From Sefer Yetzirah:
 
"Three Mothers Letters Aleph, Mem and Shin
are Air, Water and Fire.
Fire (Shin )is above, Water (Mem) is below,
and the Breath of Air (Aleph) balances between them.
Mem hums, Shin hisses, and Aleph is the Breath of Air between them.

Three Mother Letters Aleph Mem Shin in Space are Air, Water and Fire.
Heaven is created with Fire , Earth is created with Water
and Air (the atmosphere) is from Breath that is between them.

Three Mother Letters Aleph Mem Shin in Time are
hot (summer), cold (winter) and the temperate (spring/fall).
Summer is created from Fire, winter is created from Water
and the temperate seasons are from Breath that is between them.

Three Mother Letters Aleph Mem Shin in Soul are
the head, the belly and the chest.
The head is created from Fire, the belly is created from Water
and the chest is from Breath that is between them."
