Azamra: The Mountain & The Secret,

Instant Azamra In the previous post, we said that it’s important to understand the concept of Azamra and how following this practice empowers us and brings us to joy, and why joy is so important. In a nutshell: 1. Look for the good points in others. 2. Look for the good points in yourself. 3. When you do, you’ll be less prone to depression, more open to joy. 4. When you’re more joyous, it’s easier to pray. 5. When you pray, you...

Azamra: Glasses And Mirrors

Women who are eager to learn Breslov Chassidut are an amazingly honest bunch. When we learn Azamra our responses to the lesson show that we’re willing to do the hard work it takes to make this powerful teaching of Rebbe Nachman’s part of ourselves. Whether in class or one-on-one learning, whenever we discuss Azamra, there are two main types of responses  and I’ve posted versions of them, below. (These are real responses, only...

Azamra: Judging Others

Know and Understand! A person must judge everyone favorably. Even if someone is completely bad, it is necessary to search and find in him some modicum of good; the little bit of him that is not wicked. And by finding in him a drop of good and judging him favorably, one brings him to return to the true path of his Jewish soul. —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, Likutey Moharan, 282 Azamra, as Likutey Moharan 282 is known, is a foundational...

Q&A: How do I apply Likutey Moharan teachings without estranging myself?

I feel like I’ve been through an inferno after spending all that time reading Rabeinu’s words, what does he mean, how do I apply his concepts, without estranging myself from, myself, society, from the world even from my loved ones. If you ever feel that the Rebbe’s words are putting you through an inferno, then take that as a sign that you do not properly understand what the Rebbe is saying. If someone ever gets the feeling that...

Sukkot Joy

Apropos of Sukkot, an abridged rendition of Likutey Moharan II, Lesson #81 When a person cheers himself with the joy of mitzvah, and the joy is so great that it reaches down to his feet—i.e., he dances for joy—this concept is called “we will bring home a heart of wisdom” (Psalms 90:12). The feet are Netzach and Hod, the prophets. They ascend to the concept of the heart through the heart’s joy, because the joy elevates them. This is...

Dvar Torah for Sukkot/Feed Your Head

Dvar Torah for Sukkot Feed Your Head You’re probably familiar with the expression “a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” That was told to young women of bygone generations to encourage them to learn how to cook well so that could “catch” a man. Well, Rebbe Nachman teaches, the same is true of coming close to Hashem (God). The way to your neshamah (soul) is through your stomach. But the way away from your neshamah is also...

Dvar Torah for Parshat Netzavim-VaYelekh Bouncing Back—and Forward “You are standing here today… (Deuteronomy 29:9). Rashi comments: “Like ‘today’ which is, which gets dark and which shines, [God] has shone on you in the past and will shine on you in the future. The curses and the suffering [of Deuteronomy 28] maintain and sustain you.* They help keep you going with [God].” Ooyyyyyy! Finally. Finally! The last Shabbos (aka...
