What is tanya?


The Tanya (תניא) is an early work of Hasidic philosophy, by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad Hasidism, first published in 1797. Its formal title is Likkutei Amarim (ליקוטי אמרים, Hebrew, "collection of statements"), but is more commonly known by its opening word, Tanya, which means "it was taught in a beraita". It is composed of five sections that define Hasidic mystical psychology and theology as a handbook for daily spiritual life in Jewish observance.

Famous quotes containing the word tanya:

    Joseph, when I had jewels and lands and palaces, I was often weary and discontent. When everything was taken away, except my life, I learned that the way to be really happy is to serve others, to be needed.
    —Adele Comandini. Edward Sutherland. Madam Tanya (Maria Ouspenskaya)
