Core Texts of the Hasidic Masters, Part 14 of 43. Schachter-Shalomi begins this class answering a question about a teaching of Reb Levi Yitzhak of Berditchev on God's preoccupation. He then discusses the issue of Jews, Non-Jews, and the "organismic" understanding of religion, telling a story of Reb Israel, the Maggid of Koznitz (misspeaks and says, Maggid of Mezritch) and talks about Sam Keen's stages of love. He then answers questions about the theory of paradigm shift in religion and the concepts of Emptiness and Nothingness. At this point, he begins to discuss Reb Shneur Zalman of Liadi, HaBaD Hasidism and the book called the Tanya. He discuses the inscription on the title page of the Tanya. This is followed by a short teaching about the Animal Soul and the Four Elements, which is followed by "The Niggun of the Four Stanzas" by Reb Shneur Zalman. He then looks at chapter 2 of the Tanya.
