Sichos HaRan 30 – 31 – 32 – The Importance of Shacharis – Morning Prayer – At Netz HaChama – Sunrise. Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon.
00:00 – PARAGRAPH 30. It’s not good to spend too much time in the bathroom.
05:50 – PARAGRAPH 31. The importance of beginning the Shemoneh Esrei prayer of Shacharis at sunrise, as written in the will of the Baal Shem Tov Hakodesh.
13:10 – Biographical description of davening Netz – praying at sunrise – with Reb Michel Dorfman z”l in the Breslov Yeshiva in Meah Shaarim, Jerusalem. In Jerusalem, the earliest time to put on a talis is 52 minutes before sunrise.
17:56 – PARAGRAPH 32. Simple emunah vs. theology. Avoiding philosophical questions about religion and Torah commentaries that draw on secular thought. When in doubt, stick with Rashi, the Ramban, the Ohr HaChaim.
23:46 – Chochmah (knowledge) vs. ratzon (a higher level, an aspect of keser – crown/pure will -yearning for Hashem). No matter how much we know, we need to hold onto the truth that we don’t know. We believe.
30:50 – There are certain sins that inject doubt into the heart. But the antidote is shame and embarrassment at our material limitations.
34:22 – Emunah (faith in Hashem) vs. “taking action” in the “shark tank” world. What is true strength?*
38:02 – Some very pure souls are not affected by philosophy.
