The 231 Gates rotate forward and back
A new book on the legends and history of Kabbalah and the Book of Creation, Kabbalah's Secret Circles, has just published! Read some of the chapters and download a free PDF sample of the book to preview.
The second chapter (or Mishna, in Hebrew) of the "Sefer Yetzirah" describes how to turn the 22 Hebrew letters into the 231 Gates.
The sum of 231 represents the number of possible combinations of the 22 Hebrew letters; in groups of twos. The number value of 231 is also the product of 3, 6, and 11.
