Binah is the Third Sephiroth in the kabalistic Tree of Life.

Other names: Ama - the dark sterile mother, Aima - the bright fertile mother, Marah - the great sea (Maris - Mary), The Caverns of Silence

The Third Intelligence is called the Sanctifying intelligence, the Foundation of Primordial Wisdom; it is also called the Creator of Faith, and its roots are in Amen. It is the parent of faith, whence faith emanates.
