The picture of Rabbi Nachman that emerges is of one who, while being a man of flesh and blood, lived on an entirely different plane from other people. One of a small number of Jewish leaders who stand alone men of awesome stature, whose mission was universal. Rabbi Nachman of Breslov was such a Tzaddik.
