Breslov - "In The Beginning"

Welcome everyone to a new cycle of Krias HaTorah. As I mentioned in one of my blogs that I posted especially for the Yom Hillula of Rabbeinu, as per the Hidden Codes of the Torah, the five letter word Breslov in Hebrew can be spelled equidistantly nearly 1,800 times in the Torah - forwards & backwards.

The word Breslov - Beis-Reish-Samech-Lamed-Veis - can be spelled equidistantly 912 times forward. Hence, continuing the count of this word being spelled backwards - Veis-Lamed-Samech-Reish-Beis - the first such instance is the 913th occurence counting from the amount of times that the word is spelled in order (spelling it every 42,865th letter). And the Gematria of the first word of the Torah - Bereishit - is 913.

The lesson we can learn from here - while we are hardly worthy of anything, especially as sinful beings, Hashem so to speak bent BACKWARDS by bringing to us Breslov Chassidus to have a fresh start as though we are at the start of Bereishis - IN THE BEGINNING, as a child born anew as a result of doing Teshuva. And doing Teshuva M'Ahava, out of love for Hashem, is the highest form of Teshuva, which assures us that not only it is as though we never did the Aveira, but if anything, it turns into a merit for us. And it is particular Breslov Chasidus that helps us achieve that ultimate level, regardless of our past criminal record in Hashem's book.

After all, what is the big wonder about the word Breslov being hinted in such a fashion. The word Chumash is the same Gematria as Na Nach Nachma Nachman=354, and the amount of Pesukim in the Chumash - 5,845 - can be hinted in the letters of Rabbeinu's name: Noon=50, Cheis=8, Mem=40, Noon=50. Remove the zeros, and putting the remaining numbers together to spell the number of the Pesukim in the Torah - 5845.

And one more thing about the word Bereishis. As we know, there are very strong connections between Rashbi (Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai), author of the teachings of the Zohar, and Rabbeinu.
And the holiest part of the Zohar - Tikkunei HaZohar - which includes 70 Tikkunim, focuses on this first word of the Torah. And it is Rabbeinu's Sefer - Likutei Moharan, Section One, Torah 70 - that mentions Rosh Chodesh Nissan, the birthday of Rabbeinu. And it is this Rosh Chodesh, the beginning of the first month of the 12 months, that symbolizes a new renewal, the same way that the first word of the Torah - Bereishis - spells when rearranged Alef (the letter) B'Tishrei, 1st of Tishrei, which is Rosh Hashanah, about which Rabbeinu said that this is his whole essence.
