2Likutey Moharan 78 – Part 3 – How to Find the True Tzaddik – Despair Does Not Exist – Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon (Lesson 465).
00:00 – Review.
04:00 – PARAGRAPH 6.
PARAGRAPH 7. אין שום יאוש בעולם – Ain shum yi-ush b’olam – “There is no such thing as despair”. To lose hope is to fall into a state of illusion.
30:53 – Even if a person doesn’t have merit himself, he can access the free gifts of Hashem through connection to a tzaddik. Halakha states that a guest doesn’t have to obey his host if the host asks him to leave. Hashem is the Master of the World, but if a person feels that Hashem is pushing him away, he doesn’t have to “leave”.
*50:40 – PARAGRAPH 8. A person has to plead very much to be worthy of coming close to the true tzaddik. Fortunate is one who, while he’s still alive, can be close to the true tzaddik.
The Baal Davar tries to stop this process by causing disagreements between rabbis and by establishing false leaders.
