Rebbe Nachman once said, “Have you heard me lecture you with words of musar?”

Reb Noson writes: “We were a bit amazed by this remark. It seemed to us that his every word was religious and moral guidance. All his words were literally like burning coals, capable of kindling a person’s heart with fiery inspiration. Whoever heard him speak was immediately drawn to serve God. Even today, whoever studies Rebbe Nachman’s teachings sincerely will be enflamed with a burning desire to come closer to God” (Rabbi Nachman’s Wisdom #124).

? Rebbe Nachman once told an atheist, “I also don’t believe in the God you don’t believe in!”
