Last night I was meditating on the simple structure of the Torah, and as readers of the **The Genesis Prayer** and **The Divine Calendar** already know the quantitative sum of the Words, Letters, and Verses in the Torah equals **5 ^{8}** (5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5) exactly, which is an amazing phenomenon unto itself, considering that this means that the author of the Torah had to have kept track of each one of those letters, and words, and verses and not misplaced a single one—I had trouble just making sure I had the right number of 5’s in the parenthesis above.

Now, those **5 ^{8 }**or

**390,625**core elements is not an insignificant number by any means. For one, it is also

**625**, and

^{2}**625**is the gematria value of H’Keter (

**ה**

**כ**

**ת**ר), the crown(ing) dimension. For another of many,

**1775**is the numerical value of the sum of the

**22**letters of the Hebrew alef-bet when the

**5**final letter values are included and

**1775 x 22 + 125**=

**390,625**. According to the Arizal,

**125**is representative of Elohim, the Torah’s

**3**word, whose

^{rd}**5**letters have

**120**permutation. It’s also equivalent to

**5**.

^{3}So thinking about those **5845** verses, **304805** letters and **79975** (sometimes **79976** depending on how you look at a single letter word) letters, I realized there was beautiful puzzle concealed within the numbers that only gematria could bring to life.

If we sum up the digits in the **5845** verses, we get **5+8+4+5 = 22**, which corresponds to **the 22 ^{nd} letter, Tav (T, **

**ת).**

If we sum up the digits in the **304805** letters, we get **3+4+8+5 = 20**, which corresponds to **the 20 ^{th} letter, Resh (R, **

**ר)**

Now if we also sum up the digits in the **79975** words, we get **7+9+9+7+5 = 37**, which corresponds to **the 37 ^{th} letter, which is Yud (Y,**

**י)**when using cyclical gematria.

What this gives us is **Tav (T, ****ת), Resh (R, ****ר) and Yud (Y,****י**), which together have the gematria of **610 **and if we add **1** for the kolel we get** 611**, the gematria value of** Torah (TVRH, ** **ת****ו****ר****ה** **). **But since the gematria milui (spelled out) values of the letters **V**av (VYV) is **22** and **H**e (HY) is **15** respectively, they are together **22 + 15 = 37**, and thus we find that the letters encoded in the quantitative core elements of the Torah spell out the word **Torah** **(TVRH,****ת****ו****ר****ה** **).**

This is amazing unto itself, but, as mentioned earlier, we can also calculate the total number of words in the Torah as **79,976**, which is also **80,000-(3×8 or .03%)**. And when we use **79,976 **words as a standard, we get **7+9+9+7+6 = 38**, which is apropos given the equation just demonstrated, but it also corresponds to **the 38 ^{th} letter, which is Caf (C,**

**כ)**when using cyclical gematria.

And thus when considering **79,976 **words, we find that the letters encoded in the quantitative core elements of the Torah spell out **CTR (Keter**, **כ**** ת**ר), of numerical value **620. **

And by the way, the ordinal value of those letters, which was dictated by sum of the digits in the **3** quantitative elements was **38 + 22 + 20 = 80**, as in the **80,000** words less **.03%) **contained in the Torah.

It’s a beautiful thing that we’ve been given, no less than perfect in every way, like the light itself. Once we understand that, we’ll have the necessary awe to understand everything and the secrets will no longer be secrets, but merits.
