|Attachment to tzadikim is called in hebrew hiskarvus latzadikim being
close to tzadikim, this means of course listening to their advise etc.,
however, reading our sforim we see that Reb Noson zl took every possible
opportunity to visit the Rebbe when he was alive and after his passing.
Why did he not stay at home and just follow the advise? Why did he
risk his Shalom bayis just to be with the Rebbe for a few moments?
The answer is if one believes that this is our Moshe Rabbenu
they would do almost anything to be close to him. Breslover chasidim risked
their lives crossing the Polish-Russian border (although without approval),
just to be at the tzion to say tikun Haklali! Hiskarvus is being close
and developing a love for the tzadik more than one loves a woman (see likutei
moharan). Of the 30 to 40 times I was zoche to be there I can't get
enough!!! On this last trip I mentioned to friend on the taxi as we left
Uman, that we should turn around and go back, the light of lights
was buried in Uman to correct the world (a quote from Reb Noson). To sum
up of course the main time is Rosh Hashana, and if we can only afford 1
time that is the time, however whoever hears the call of the tzadik
and loves him, can't live without at least trying to be close more than
on Rosh Hashana. Therefore visit the Rebbe all the time and any time.
