This book is an in-depth study of the function of music in religious experience according to Rabbi Na?man of Bratzlav. It provides new insights on his unique doctrine of the Good Points, which represent the core of loving kindness and holiness in the human soul, and the musical context in which they become both a means and a metaphor for spiritual transformation. Drawing on midrashic and kabbalistic sources, the book explores Na?mans perception of different types of tzadiqim (religious leaders), including himself, and the special role music plays in their leadership. It highlights the importance of creativity and renewal in the messianic process that involves both music and loving kindness.
