As Divided for a Leap Year

Tanya for 16 Adar II

15 Adar II, 5779 - March 22, 201917 Adar II, 5779 - March 24, 2019

Once the totality of the vital soul of the community of Israel will become a holy chariot for G-d, then also the general vitality of this world, which now consists of kelipat nogah, will also emerge from its impurity and sickness [the term "impurity" refers to the evil of the kelipah; "sickness" refers to the element of good that kelipat nogah contains, which is nevertheless the good of kelipah, not holiness], and will ascend to holiness, to become a chariot for G-d, upon the revelation of His glory [in the World to Come].

Then all flesh will behold [G-dliness] together, and He will appear upon them with the majestic beauty of His power, and "the glory of G-d will fill the whole world."

Israel will see "eye to eye" - [the human eye will see the truth of G-dliness just as the Supernal "eye" sees it] - just as [they saw] at the giving of the Torah, of which it is written, [6] "You showed Yourself, so that it be known that `G-d is the L-rd [lit.: the Four- Letter Divine Name is ELOKIM; i.e., despite the concealment of the Four-Letter Divine Name (which denotes G-d's limitless power) by the name Elokim (which signifies G-d's self-limitation), it is the former that still pervades all existence]; there is nothing else besides Him."

[But whereas the revelation at Sinai lasted only a short time, the revelation in the future will be permanent].

Through this [ascent of kelipat nogah to holiness], the three unclean kelipot will be utterly annihilated and nullified.

For the nurture and vitality which they now receive from holiness, comes to them [only] by way of kelipat nogah, the intermediary between them.

[Kelipat nogah, containing both good and evil, is the medium through which these kelipot which are completely evil receive their vitality from G-dliness, which is completely good.

When kelipat nogah ascends to G-dliness, the impure kelipot, no longer having any access to G-dly vitality, cease to exist].
