Dear JLI Student,
We began our study of Tanya by developing the vocabulary for discussing our inner realities. We spoke about the G-dly soul and the animal soul, as well as the distinction between the “powers” of the soul and its “garments.”
In this lesson, we consider how we might define a personal standard for perfection that is both reachable and reasonable. We use the constructs defined in the first lesson to understand three major spiritual classifications, and set goals for our personal spiritual growth, and define the primary method of attaining our objectives.
I look forward to seeing you next week and continuing our study of the Book of Tanya.
Your local JLI instructor
