Chanuka: Tora 2, Likutay Moharan Tinyana

Thank G-d we have the Tora of Rabbainu, nothing comes close....
This Tora is mamash almost explicitly about Na Nach Nachmu Nachmun MayUman!
In this Tora Rabbi Nachman discusses the verse ויקרא את שמו נח לאמר זה ינחמנו ממעשנו ומעצבון ידינו a direct reference to his name and to Noah, and he elaborates on the 'fourfold' parts of speech - which is mamash the idea of Na Nach - single, double... quadruple!
In a previous post I published about how Chanuka is remarkably the concept of Na Nach Nachmu Nachman MayUman, as they are both about publicizing (especially in the streets and marketplace) the wonders of the Tzadik, and they both employ the method of single, double, triple, and quadruple. You should review that post especially to see the RO"SH quoted who paskens that on the first night one blesses the light of Chanaka: Na Na"ch!
The question is how come Chanuka goes on to five, six, seven, and eight, back there I suggested an answer, here based on this amazing Tora from Rabbainu I'm going to try a different approach. Obviously every Tora from Rabbainu incorporates the entire Tora so we can expect that the solution is to be found especially in this Tora.
Rabbainu says that for the wholesomeness/perfection and to sustain/uphold the fourfold parts of speech it is necessary to light them up with EMES - truth. So it comes out that there's another single, double, triple, quadruple! So it makes so much sense that on Chanuka we do the single, double, triple, and quadruple - twice. This is why its so important to keep saying Na Nach Nachmu Nachmun MayUman, to draw more and more Truth and Light into the Na Nach Nachmu Nachmun MayUman!!! In fact the word mayuman does mean exactly that - from truth (emuna encludes the definition truth)!

Rabbi Nachman says that one who masters the fourfold parts of speech is the master of the halacha, we can postulate that the fourfold parts of speech parallel the 4 cubits of halacha, this would make Na Nach Nachmu Nachmun MayUman the 4 cubits of halacha, from which one should never leave or look out of.

With the help of G-d and with motivation from Aron Blanketstatementstien I will continue commenting on this awesome Tora. Stay in tune.

I say Hallel every day. Hanukka IS Hallel within the Hallel.
