Breslov (Nanach) Makes it Easy

Since every day and situation is different, every person needs piles and piles of advice and techniques how to properly serve Hashem or even to get through day to day life. Unfortunately there are many people that currently follow Mefursamim shel Sheker. Even if they frequently consult with their Mefursom, it is very unlikely that he can give them even a minor part of the advice needed to get through life. Even if their Mefursom wrote a book that is always accessible to them, it still does not contain even a fraction of the advice needed. Even if their Mefursam wrote many books, they still will not get close to covering the information needed for survival. Even if their Mefursam belongs to a large dynasty that existed for many years and produced many texts, it still will not give them the advice needed for all areas of their life.

Even if a person does not follow any Mefursamim but relies on his own perception of earlier texts from true Tzadikim, he is still not covered. He will be confused by many outdated techniques and contradiction in between the various paths given by past Tzadikim.

With Nanach it is all easy. Rebbe Nachman gives advice for anything and everything a person will ever need. There is no confusion at all, if Rebbe Nachman say it, we do it. If Rebbe Nachman did not say it, we do not have to do it.

Mefursamim shel Sheker-
Is every Rav and rabbi that is in charge of a yeshiva or is a teacher in a yeshiva or a rav of a shul a meforsam shel sheker? Does the "sheker" refer to everyone who doesn't follow the Saba? What about the Chafetz Chaim and others on his level? They weren't followers of Rebbe Nachman and they didn't know about Saba, but the Chafetz Chaim, the Ben Ish Chai, the Baba Sali, for example, were awesome tzaddikim who were the opposite of sheker. They weren't Rebbe Nachman, but they were men of emes. And there are people on lower levels who are in charge of yeshivos today who are ehrliche men, who strive for emes and do the best the can to help others le'sheim shamayim. They are on the side of emes and not the side of sheker. And even leaders who have some sheker mixed in may not be totally sheker, they might have a lot of emes and teach a lot of emes even though it might be mixed with some sheker. Rebbe Nachman taught that a tzaddik who makes mistakes is still a tzaddik. Mefursamim shel sheker sounds like the person is being painted as completely evil and completely sheker. I don't think this is what you mean though. But the term has that tone to it. At what point does a rav or teacher leave the category of mefursom shel sheker? At what point does he enter that category? Maybe we should talk about this offline instead.

The Petek is 100% emes.

I identified it as the direct path to G-d from the moment I saw it.
(less then 1% of the population)

Saba said to distribute it and further more that no one rejects it.(99% of the population)

The mefoursamim are those that violently oppose the petek.
(less then 1% of the population)

The villager said...

Nothing in the world is 100% emes besides the petek itself. (leave G-d out of this because he is not "in the world" without sheker there is no "Hallal ha panouil") so the only thing worth knowing about in this world, is in fact the petek! Rabbi Nachman says each Jew needs to realize the whole world was created only for him... and I add "to find the Petek"!
How can it exist in this world???

regarding the questions about who's considered MSS, this has been discussed elsewhere, and many times, so please forgive me for not answering. If you can't find it using it the (cloud index), you can learn about it from the book Likutay Nanach available for free at

Naanaach, no problem.

Villager, what do you mean "the only thing knowing about in this world is in fact the petek"? What about Torah shebechsav and Torah shebalpeh and Rabbeinu's books and Reb Nosson's books?

Question: Was the Shpola Zeida a Tzaddik? Do you consider him to fall in the category of MSS?
