brilliance like the firmament

In honor of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's hillulah, לג - the 33rd day of the counting of the omer, I'd like to quote a simple lesson from the Zohar, his main work, that I learned over Shabbath.

The Zohar (פרשת וירא) mentions that someone who has children in assured of the world to come.

Why? Because they brought their children into this world [presumably so that they could have a chance to perform mitzwoth and learn Torah] their children [presumably by performing mitzwoth and learning Torah] will bring them into the next world.

What could be a better Torah for a new father to come across in the Zohar?
