Maamarim of Chassuna.
These are the 13 Elul Ma'amarim from the anniversary of the Previous Rebbe's Chassuna.
The Two Lecha Dodis given at Beis Midrash linashim in 5774/ 2013.
The Maaamr recited at the Rebbe and Rebbetzin's wedding.
The Fierdike Rebbe's Licha Dodi illustrates how preliminary influence brings to deeper influences until the ultimate influence the converging of two into one (in children).
The examples 1) teacher and students, 2) Father and son, how it is in darkness (Galus) to light (geula), 4) Davening form cold to hot.
Two key additions are added to the Previous Rebbe's version of this Maamar:
1) The makif is only preliminary but it is very great and high in its' own right, just not as high as what follows it.
2) The highest point in all this is revealing the Ma'ala of the Mikbael, Malchus the woman etc.
Combined commentary on the Rebbe's and the frierdike Rebbes Maamarim Licha Dodi.
This Maamar revolves around four Midrashim on the idea of Shulamis.
1) The first says that Yidden through Torah bring peace (real peace) into the world.
2-3) The second and third describe two conditions 1) Galus, 2) Beis hamikdahs, where Yidden can bring this peace.
4) The fourth says that to affect this peace the learning must be with Yirah and Bittul.
This explains why every one who learns Torah must have the quality of a Talmid Chachom (Bittul) to learn Torah correctly.
This long Maamr is actually quite easy.Iit has two parts (basically).
One dealing with the words 'MiKol Michatzetzim', which means The idea of Bittul in the Torah even of children, and that learning Torah in this way affects one's ability to paskin Halacha LiaMaase and teaching others.
Two- Why this is most affective in the darkness of Golus especially? Because of the stress. the highest treasures are revealed, through our Yira Tataa, Yira Ilaa (Otzar shel Yiras Shamayim) is revealed.
This is tied into why the Possuk says 'Pirzono' and we read 'Pizrono'.

Two ideas of Shalom (peace):
1) Elevating (and giving clarity to) the sparks through Torah, peace.
2) Bringing together opposites makes even the war peaceful, as the peace is in the getting together with an opposite.
Pada_Bishalom according to the Gemara in Brachos (6a) involves all three pillars of Torah Tzedaka and Tefilla, but they are not equal. the Torah is on a much higher level than the other two as is enlightened by the Possuk Vichol banayich... Virav Shalom Banayich, that the Chazal interpret "Al tiokri banyich ela Bonayich". The Shela holds that the two halves of the Possuk are separate. The first half is about "Limudei Hashem" who get our koach for Avoda from Hahshem, while the second half discribes those who are hasehm's partners in creation. This is the level of Torah in the Possuk Pada Bishalom Nafshi.
14. Vchol Banayich 5745.
The ma'amar Vichol Banayich is a longer version of the Pada BiShalom that came before it
It teaches that there is a level where all three kavim are equal and a much higher level where Torah [Umnaso, Bichal Miodecha, Milachtecha Naasis Al Yedai Acheirim] is unique to talmu Torah and this higher level is te level of Rav Shalom and where a Yid is only a son of Hahsem but (a partner-) builder of His world.
Cont. two levels of shalom:
1) Cherev Shel shalom, this means when one is involved in peace, revealing the Neshama but he knows that afterwards he will have to go out and fight the world, so the peace has an indirect relationship to war. This is true on the lower level in all three aspects of Torah Avoda and Gemilas Chasadim.
2) Shalom mamosh, through the Torah (of one who is Toraso Umnaso) the world is perfected peacefully and automatically.
The Teshuva and Davening nowadays must be done only with joy because 1) We're too low to afford any kind of sadness 2) We've completed all aspects of sad Avoda. The question is still, how is the Tachlis of Totah Teshuva and Maasim Tovim. He explains that the point of Torah is to know Atzmus which is achieved through Teshuva and good deeds.

Joy was created before the Chosson and Kalla to empower them.
