This book is a collection of Maamars of the sixth Lubavitch Rebbe in free translation into Russian.
Maamar (lit. "speech", "utterance") is a traditional form of transmission of Hasidic teachings to the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Typically, the Rebbe recited the Maamars orally (hence the name Maamar) during Hasidic gatherings, usually on Saturdays, holidays and special dates. Later, the maamars were issued in writing. Thus, various collections of the Maamars became the main source of the Hasidic teachings of Chabad.
The Maamars are in-depth studies of divine comprehension and G-d ministry based on an analysis of the verses of Scripture and the sayings of the sages in the light of Hasidic teachings. It is customary to call the Maamars the "Words of the Living Gd" - Divrei Elokim Chaim (abbreviated as Dakh), since, during the recitation of Maamar, the Divine secrets of the hidden Torah are revealed through the Rebbe. Therefore, pronouncing maamar requires special preparation, which is a special Hasidic chant (nigun).
The name maamar is traditionally determined by the beginning of the verse being analyzed or the utterance of the sages.
