30 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Rabbi Yonassan Gershom VINE VOICE on February 20, 2004
This little booklet is only 96 pages long, but contains a lifetime of spiritual practices. It's the Aryeh Kaplan translation of Hishtpakut ha-nefesh, a classic complilation of Rebbe Nachman's teachings on spontaneous personal prayer (hisboddidus), which is a central part of Breslov daily practice.
The source-quotes for many well-known Breslov concepts can be found here: Repeating one word over and over like a mantra (p. 24); pouring out your heart to God in your own language (p. 20); spending time in solitude (p. 28); finding yourself in the Psalms (p. 24); meditating outdoors where "each blade of grass sings out to God" (p. 42); The "silent scream" technique (p.40); and much more.
The booklet also contains an excellent overview of the history of meditation in Judaism, written by the translator, Aryeh Kaplan. Kaplan brings to this translation his expertise in meditation practices, which he has written about more extensively in his own works. The original compiler of these quotes, Rabbi Alter of Teplik, also wrote an intro, which is included here, too.

Small book (pocket size), packed with 54 simple, yet mind-blowing ideas.
This is a practical book which can help a person attain a transcendant spiritual experience and get in touch with thier true inner self.
It is a translation of snipets from a major teaching of the 17th century Mystic, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. It is ancient yet speaks directly to the modern soul.
Easy to use techniques. Quick results. This book can help you through life. Get in touch with the infinite light within you.
In brief, this book teaches a meditation called "hitbodedut". It is an active and reactive form of meditation which is a low level of prophecy. It is when a person speaks to God who lies within each person essence. After doing this for a while, a person recieves clear responses and they walk away feeling as if they just had a profound conversation with a really good friend or psycologist. This daily meditation gives one clarity through tough times, helps one make decisions, and overall gives us the piece of mind we all yearn for.

Small, but Loaded. And could nicely fit into your Coat or back pocket. Why is the Soul constantly searching and reaching out to God.? Because it is part of God. Do not let the evil side deceive you, the soul of Man is from God and will seek God out all the time. I have to read it again to grasp its essence. But there is a process to guide the the Soul on its path to God while here in this world. Some references are not quite modern in Biblical terms but the book like the soul does reach out.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By mjstone on September 19, 2011
This short book served as a turning point in my journey of spirituality and personal prayer. Coming from a secular background, I have always had a difficult time relating to prayer. The techniques described in this book are so simple and pure, and remind me of how I used to talk to Hashem as a child--before anyone ever told me to. I started these "conversations" in my bed as I am about to fall asleep, and now I feel like they are permeating my entire life. I am not a religious person, and do not practice Judaism in a strict way, but I feel like this book can speak to all Jews and all people of the world and give them hope that G-d, as Rabbi Kaplan has said, "Is closer to you than the air you breathe."

This is an excellent, practical guide to a uniquely Jewish form of meditative prayer. The format makes it easy to read in small chunks.
