In the Breslov interpretation of Psalm 1, the focus is on the path of the tzaddik, or the righteous person. The tzaddik is someone who meditates on God’s Torah day and night, and is like a tree planted by streams of water that brings forth fruit in its season. The tzaddik’s life is in contrast to the wicked, who are like chaff that is blown away by the wind, and will ultimately be punished by God.
A Personal Prayer
“Loving God, I come to you with a humble heart, seeking to deepen my connection to the Torah and to Your teachings.
I strive to follow the path of the tzaddik, as described in Psalm 1, meditating on Your Torah day and night, and being like a tree planted by streams of water that brings forth fruit in its season.
Through the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, help me to connect to the innermost depths of Your wisdom and to find true joy and fulfillment in my life.
I trust in Your love and protection, knowing that You are always with me and that You will never abandon me. Thank you for the gift of the Torah and for all the blessings You have bestowed upon me. With all my heart, I dedicate myself to Your service and the study of Your holy word, Amen.
