Spirituality & Mysticism:
The Rebbe not only continued the heritage of Chassidic forebearers in channeling and harnessing emotional resources, he pointed the way to new frontiers, by giving a multi-faceted conception of avodah, with applications in our Divine service, in our interpersonal relations, and even in our business activities. In that way, he has given one the potential to mold their character and change the natural flow of their emotions. He has shown how to conquer the inner obstacles, the "minds of stone", by understanding the direction in which emotions should lead and corresponding actions. Simply put, his teachings make ideals and concepts that are intellectually abstract cogently real. Several classic examples of such teachings are collected and translated in this volume.
