A Chasidic Discourse by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi
Translated & Annotated By: Rabbi Chaim Zev Citron
Additional Annotation By: Rabbi Avraham D. Vaisfiche
This discourse presents a modern-day perspective on the Biblical command to offer animal sacrifices. Rabbi Schneur Zalman teaches that each of us possesses certain character traits that can be seen as "animalistic," or materialistic, in nature, which can lead a person toward material indulgence.
Our mission, then, is to "sacrifice" and transform the animal within, through meditating upon the greatness of G-d. This ultimately alters the very composition of one`s materialistic traits, so that they too may gain an appreciation of the spiritual, and develop a love for G-d.
