    You where stressing in your talk the meaning of being a.......מניח.....for the Rebbes Farbrengen. Here the תפארת שלמה  explains from the word.   ותנח   Which is similar to the word of. מניח. or   הנחה,or נחת. That you get at certain times a certain רוה״ק.

    Iam not insinuating anything. But when you had such a task at hand of translating the מאמרים you needed a lot of סייעתא דשמיא. That’s really in short. Good shabbos.

    tape recorder vs. human

    Amazingly a tape recorder was doing a better job than a human being trying his best to make abstraction of himself whilst listening to the Rebbe זצ"ל

    When does the leap from complete bittul and not even thinking of not thinking anything to digesting, processing and understanding the information happen?

      After the teacher, the Rebbe, completed his presentation -- then and only then can the student begin the second phase of processing.

    Listening strengthened terribly my nostalgia of the last generation of leaders I was not zoche to meet. Did women attend to the Rebbe´s ztl farbrengens? (Considering how the Rebbe promoted women Torah learning and leadership...)
