Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon. Excerpt from a shiur given on 2018-03-11. Text: Parparaos leChokhmah (commentary by Reb Nachman Tcherin z”l) on Likutey Moharan Torah 61. This is a short clip. You can listen to the entire shiur here: 2018-03-11 – LM1 – Torah 061 – Para. 7 – Understanding Why We Travel to Uman for Rosh Hashanah
00:00 – Torah 61 of the Likutey Moharan is considered the “Last Will of Rebbe Nachman” because throughout this teaching he hints at how he wants his students to relate to him after his passing.
01:30 – Response to question “Why do I need to be close to a tzaddik? Isn’t it enough to just study his writings?”
02:15 – צַדִּיקִ֥ים יִֽירְשׁוּ־אָ֑רֶץ וְיִשְׁכְּנ֖וּ לָעַ֣ד עָלֶֽיהָ “Tzaddikim inherit the Land and will dwell there forever.” (Tehillim/Psalms 37:29). The gravesite of a tzaddik has the holiness of Eretz Yisrael, and that of a very great tzaddik is compared to the Even Shesiya (Foundation Stone) of the Beis HaMikdash (Holy Temple) in Jerusalem.
