As Divided for a Leap Year

Tanya for 11 Nissan

10 Nisan, 5779 - April 15, 201912 Nisan, 5779 - April 17, 2019

"And, behold, G-d [Himself] stands over him," [3] and "The whole world is full [only] with His Glory," and [not only being omnipresent does He see everything, but moreover] He scrutinizes him in particular, and searches his reins and heart [i.e., his innermost thoughts and emotions to see] if he is serving Him as is fitting.

Therefore, he must serve in His Presence with awe and fear [i.e., notes the Rebbe Shlita, not merely like one who is located in the King's domain, but moreover] like one standing before the King.

One must meditate profoundly and at length on this concept, according to the capacity of apprehension of his brain and thought, and the time available [to devote to this contemplation;

This time being]: before he engages in [the study of] Torah or [the performance of] a commandment, such as before putting on his tallit or tefillin.

[This meditation will enable him to then serve G-d with awe.

The Alter Rebbe now goes on to explain another form of meditation.

Unlike the above thoughts which should preface divine service in general, this meditation relates to the particular mitzvah that the individual is about to perform - to the content of this mitzvah, its distinctive effect, and its influence on his soul].
