One who contributes from his wealth for the purpose of writing or publishing a sefer of a Tzaddik –
Behold, at any given time, and in any corner of the world, that a person studies from this sefer, the Tzaddik [on high] evokes merit on behalf of the donor through whom the sefer was disseminated.
—The Rebbe, Igrot Kodesh, vol 2
by Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Referred to as a landmark discourse, delivered by the Rebbe barely two years after ascending to the leadership of Chabad-Lubavitch, this discourse is perhaps unique among all of the Rebbe`s teachings in the sense that its message required a retooling of our conception of divine service. It discusses the self-satisfaction that might result from our love and awe of G-d, and that contemplating the fact that our days upon earth need to be utilized to the fullest serves to remove any such feelings of satisfaction.
Even without having been present, the reader can sense the immeasurable devotion emanating from the mind and heart of a true servant of G-d, as he charges us with the task of continuously choosing to look beyond ourselves, with FULL DEVOTION, to see G-d`s love for us, which in turn, will make us successful in loving and serving him.
