The letter Dalet!! ד!! The letter dalet ד is the fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It means doorway דלת - the medium of connection between two spaces. Nature- four cardinal directions are the platform for deeper spirituality. Horizontal and vertical plane represent physical and spiritual connectivity!! In the tradition dalet ד represents in its form a person bowing before the all powerful HaShem. Humility is the main attribute of dalet ד Only through humility can one elevate into a richer and deeper consciousness.
