As the attacks of the opposition are battling with full force, you will need an equivalent force to combat them. This is the Tzaddik – the True Tzaddik – the Complete Tzaddik.
Why do we need the Tzaddik in our lives? How does connecting to the Tzaddik bring us joy? Why do his teachings help elevate our souls?
In this seven-part course, we’ll discuss the spiritual and practical meaning of the Tzaddik, using Advice (Likutey Eitzot) as our guide. Join us and learn about a powerful key concept in Breslov Chasidut, one that is vitally important to the Jewish nation as well as to each individual.
Series: Human Self-Creation with the Kabbalah of Rebbe Nachman
In this moving lesson (Likutey Moharan 15) Rebbe Nachman reveals the true nature and experience of Yirat Hashem, Fear of G-d, which is the essence of Divine Service. The path to this ‘ultimate goal’ requires faith and trust, prayer, hitbodedut (intense meditative prayer) study, and connecting to Hashem via the mitzvot.
Genuine Yirah (fear) is living with the consciousness that only Hashem controls and directs the events of our lives and the events of the world. This authentic Yirah liberates us from baseless fears and false worries which tend to dominate our inner being—if we let them. Accordingly, true Yirat Hashem liberates us from the bonds of the unreal and allows us to reach our true spiritual potential.
