This small book is the first in a series that detail practical steps in attaining the state of “feeling attached to Hashem” at all times.
The Hebrew title Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh (“In my heart, I will build a Sanctuary”) sums up the three elements of the method:
The goal is to create in oneself a “sanctuary” within which the Divine Presence will rest.
The method is “building” step by step in a concrete way that is both simple and profound.
The tool is “my heart.” The author guides the reader on how to arouse his inner feelings using the medium of directed thought and speech.
Thus, while these books certainly expand our minds, more importantly, they give us specific methods for working with the heart – the primary gauge of our inner growth.
The author has studied the full spectrum of Torah literature that deal with the topic of “how to best serve Hashem.” By using an eclectic approach, he has developed a method that speaks to the hearts of Jews from all walks of life.
