|Rebbe Nachman of Breslov taught…|
|If a person wants to merit to do teshuvah, he should make a regular practice of reciting Tehillim.|
(Likutey Moharan II:73)
|What does this mean to me?|
|Rebbe Nachman taught that the concentrated essence of all of the forty-nine paths of repentance—expressed in the forty-nine letters that make up all of the names of the tribes of the Jewish people—are to be discovered within the book of Psalms. Every tribe had its own path of prayer, it’s own way of serving G-d, and every Jew also has his or her unique gateway through which to return to G-d. Immersing ourselves in Tehillim—discovering our voice in Tehillim—will help us find our way.|
|Dearest G-d, what great kindness You showed us |
When You sent us Your beloved King David,
The Sweet composer of Psalms.
You have revealed that saying Tehillim
May I put my heart into the words of Tehillim,
Help me, through saying Tehillim properly,
Then I know I will also find true happiness
Oddly enough, when you have given in this manner, you reap untold rewards. Even though they are not sought, the return (of that investment) plows back to the self such joy; and sometimes one finds unsought or material benefits there. Amazingly, one never even anticipated that reward but is there- unselfishly there.
