Likutei Sichos- A complete Sicha in one class. VOL.31 classes



Loshon HaRa is the only thing that prevents a nation from being formed, even if God is the Creator. Idolatry isn't as negative as disunity.



Likutei Sichos vol 31 page 77 ff



Class One: (oral) introduction, more is discussed about music. The idea of כחות vs חושים. The senses get to the essence and from the essence much more quickly but fleetingly. The "songs" of the Torah are Torah. They speak from the Soul or to the Soul in a way that bypasses the long involved path of the mind and heart route. This first song, sings even of the Beis Hamikdash and Moshiach because that is what we sing about in this first song.



Class Two: Inside. The first song sings of everything that brings to הוי' ימלוך לעולם ועד- the world becoming His. The two approaches of Rashi and the Mechilta-how significant is the ridding of the evil to the ultimate purpose?





Moshe complains (and he is right). But Hashem explains that it is the only way to get הוי'ה on the level above all constraints.



In contrast to the convention that there are two successive stages to the Pharaoh's stubbornness; one where he is stubborn on his own and another where Hashem makes him stubborn. The Rebbe proves that: 1) The two levels of the Pharaoh's stubbornness are simultaneous and last for the duration of all ten Makkos beginning with the very first. His first stubbornness makes some sense; while the second makes no sense whatsoever. 2) Moshe was told about these two types of being stubborn so he could combat it with two levels of קבלת עול to counteract Klipa's stubbornness.



Class One. The plague of blood was static- being fully manifest from the first moment and not advancing over the course of the week it lasted. Still at week's end it was completed- why? We'll continue next time.  



Class Two. Blood still advances over the week, as its education is completed not only over the course of the week it inflicted Egypt, but even the three weeks between plagues was a part of the education.



מכת חושך is compared to Golus as it relates to the Yidden (as we'll see in the next class on this Sicha) accordingly we discuss how this מכה was a Golus (of sorts) for the Egyptians.



Class One Hundred and Thirty Three, (first of 2 parts) Likutei Sichos vol 31 p 85 ff. The Manna and Shabbos- total rest.
Lecture (with no text).
This class discusses the side of Shabbos and the Manna which explains the idea of pure rest and the divine pleasure of this.
And how this is not nothing or worse than nothing.



Class One Hundred and Thirty Two, (second of 2 parts) Likutei Sichos vol 31 p 85 ff. The Manna and Shabbos- total rest.
Inside the Sicha. Manna isn't complete until it doesn't come on Shabbos. Then, (and only then,) is the true meaning of the Manna (rest, the pleasure of rest and how this is somehow work) realized and it is connected to Shabbos.
Shabbos is the same idea.
