Tehillim (Psalms) have a special place in the hearts of the Jewish people. These are the prayers we recite in times of trouble and times of joy. Considered intrinsically holy, their study and recital is as meritorious as the study and reading of Torah itself! In Chassidic thought, Tehillim represent the quintessence of prayer and King David, their author, the epitome of a person devoted to God.
Saying Tehillim is an age-old Jewish practice. The image of the well-worn volume soaked with a mother's tears accompanies many children as they grow up. Individuals, congregations, and entire communities say Tehillim to evoke merit for the sick, those in danger, the childless and countless others. Psalms are also a part of our daily prayers, giving voice to our desire to connect with God.
For many of us, though, the Tehillim remain an enigma. How exactly do we apply King David's prayers to our situations? How do we arouse our hearts with words that we may not fully understand? In short, how do we find ourselves in the Psalms?
Rebbe Nachman of Breslev shows us how. His teachings probe and extract the deeper meanings of the Psalms and their import for our daily lives. With incisive commentary and original insights, the Rebbe transforms our saying of Tehillim from rote recital to genuine prayers.
The next time you "say Tehillim," say it with the Power of Psalms. With Rebbe Nachman at your side, you can find yourself and your inspiration in the Psalms. A true treasure that is a must for every library!! EXCELLENT!!
