Likutei Moharan Learning Beginning with Teis

As per the booklet Ner L'Tzadik compiled by Rabbi Moshe Breslover consisting of teachings of Likutei Moharan beginning with the letters of the Alef Beis; since each of the 12 months correspond to one of the letters of the Alef Beis, the following is a teaching starting with the letter Teis that corresponds to this month of Menachem Av.
TOHAMOH - "She has tasted that her merchandise is good" (Mishlei 31:18)
Meaning, as soon as one tastes the taste of Torah of the true Tzadik (righteous person), that lamp of Torah will no longer be extinguished at night (based on the wording of the end of the above verse). Meaning, that although one holds himself/herself back, and doesn't come close to the Tzadik, but on the contrary, has gone quite far from him (this is the aspect of night & darkness); nevertheless, that light of Torah that he/she received from the Tzadik will always be lit for him/her, for he/she tasted a bit of it when having visited the Tzadik.
This is the meaning of "She has tasted that her merchandise is good" - for as sooon as one tastes that its merchandise is good, which is the Torah of the Tzadik, for the merchandise is his, meaning, his Torah that it tasted good, then no more will its lamp be extinguished at night, for the light of Torah will always be lit for him/her that he/she tasted when visiting the Tzadik - even at night, meaning, when at a time of being spritiually distant from the Tzadik, which is the aspect of night, for its lamp will not be extinguished forever. (LM 1:285)
