As Divided for a Leap Year

Tanya for 17 Adar II

16 Adar II, 5779 - March 23, 201918 Adar II, 5779 - March 25, 2019

It follows, therefore, that the purpose of the Messianic era and of the resurrection, namely, the revelation of His glory and Divinity, and the banishment of the spirit of impurity from the earth, is entirely dependent on [our] drawing down His G-dliness and the blessed Ein Sof-light upon all the 248 limbs of the vital soul of all Israel [for by way of the vital soul, all the world will be suffused with G-dliness, and this is achieved] by the vital soul's performance of all the 248 positive mitzvot;

And [this purpose is also dependent] on [our] banishing the spirit of impurity, [i.e., the three impure kelipot], from the vital soul of all Israel [for by being banished from the vital soul, the spirit of impurity is banished from the entire world; and this is accomplished] by the vital soul's observance of all 365 prohibitive mitzvot, thus preventing its 365 blood vessels from drawing nurture from the spirit of impurity.

[Why is it that suffusing the vital soul with Ein Sof-light and banishing the impure kelipot from the vital soul produces a parallel effect on the entire world?]
