Anyone familiar with this? Comments?

Seder Hishtalshelus CD-Rom

Shiurim on the Mitler Rebbe’s Shaar Hayichud - Vol 1 – Chapters 10-22

Seder Hishtalshelus Shiurim on Shaar Ha Yichud of the Mitler Rebbe Did you ever run across a Kabbalistic term in a sicha or maamor and didn't know what it meant? Do you ever wonder how the esoteric concepts of Chassidus apply to your daily life? Do you feel like you need a stronger foundation in the concepts of Chassidus? This mp3 CD is for you.

In this exciting project, Rabbi Benyomin Walters translates and explains Shaar HaYichud of the Mitler Rebbe. This sefer is the only place you will find the entire Seder Hishtalshelus explained from top to bottom by one the Chabad Rebbeim. The Rebbe has called this sefer the "key to the teachings of Chassidus" (Hayom Yom Shushan Purim Adar II). While this sefer is highly detailed and complex, Rabbi Walters has made it accessible and understandable to anyone with even a passing knowledge of Chassidus. Listen for only 15 minutes a day and watch your understanding of Chassidus soar.

This mp3 CD contains over 18 hours of audio classes and covers chapters 10 through 22.

I've been listening to it. It's pretty good. He makes a good point: don't start Shaar HaYichud from ch. 1, since ch. 1-9 are instructions how to meditate on the material in ch's 10-end; without knowing the material, hisbonenus on it won't make a lot of sense.

It's a good deal clearer than the Markels' translation/commentary, although the new version is better than the original emails.

I wonder why the Mittler Rebbe didn't think of that when he wrote it.

He had to pick an order, so he did. I think the intro says that there is such a division.

Maybe the question is whether or not to start trying hisbonenus when one only has a partial view of the whole hishtalshelus ho-olomos.

I'm sure that if he felt that chapters 10-end should precede 1-9 he would have done so. Obviously, this is not the case. It is rediculous to state that one should begin with the protim (ch. 10-end) when the Mittler Rebbe himself says that one must begin with the klall (as in ch. 4 and ch. 7-9) and know the general approach to how to learn it (ch. 1-6) and the entire purpose of the study (kuntres hahispaalus which precedes shaar hayichud as evident from the very first line).

If you listen to the introduction you will understand. Benyomin is not saying the Mitler Rebbe made a mistake C"V. Benyomin says there that the Mitler Rebber wrote it in the LOGICAL order, and it makes perfect sense.

The Mitler Rebbe says himself that 10-54 is like a separate kuntres he added on for people who don't have a clear picture of the hishtalshelus. Unfortunately most people don't so those ppl. will need to know the hishtalshelus well b4 they can put 1-9 into practice. But the Mitler Rebbe's order is perfect assuming you already know the hishtalshelus well which we are supposed to.

If you think you know it well already-then feel free to start in whatever order you want.

Your concern that people should know HOW to learn the sefer and its purpose is valid. That is why Benyomin gives a fantastic summary of Kutres Hispalus and Chapters 1-9 at the begnining of the cd.

(for a precedent for this: Tanya was written with Lekutei Amarim first-yet the Rebbe says when you learn it you should start from Igeres HaTeshuva. It doesn't mean the Alter Rebbe "didn't think of that"-it just means that this happens to be the best way for US to learn it right now.)

But why get caught up in that when there are so many gems of insight on that cd?!

I challenge anyone to listen to a few hours of it without distractions and tell me your understanding of every sicah or maamore you learn doesn't improve dramatically. Seriously. Try it and get back to me.

If these shiurim are the same as the ones on jhfweb, they're pretty dry.
