A Construct of the Lamed

One construct of the Lamed has it made up of three letters* a Yud
[10], Vav [6] and a Kaf [20]. Adding the number values of these three letters together we get 10+6+20=36 perhaps a hint of a reference to the 36 Lamed Vav Tzadikim (36 rightous ones).** Since we have two Lamed letters in the Rabbi Abraham Abulafia Lamed heart teaching we could double the 36 value to get a total of 72 again a maybe hint of a reference about the Kabbalah
teaching of the 72 names of G-d. ***
