A person walks in life on a very narrow bridge.
The most important thing is not to be afraid.”
A treasury of insights and advice for living joyously and spiritually today, for people of all faiths—and no faith.
One of the great spiritual seekers, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772–1810) is among the most often quoted of the Hasidic masters. Even after two centuries, his teachings have a potent, meaningful message: Never lose hope; find joy and cause for happiness in everything that happens to you.
In these pages, his powerful wisdom brings us inspiration for life today.
 “Always remember:
joy is not merely incidental
to your spiritual quest.
It is vital.”
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
To some, Rebbe Nachman is best known for stories that possess profound depth and speak to the very soul. To others, his teachings shed light on some of life’s deepest mysteries. Now, as before, he speaks to a spiritually seeking generation in strong and uplifting ways.Teacher, guide and spiritual master, Rebbe Nachman provides vital words of inspiration for life today.
With timeless insight and wisdom, Rebbe Nachman shows us how to fill the empty chair—the alienated self—by leaving sadness and finding hope and joy.

“Small in size but large in purpose ... has a great deal of universality in its wisdom.... Enjoyable and provocative.”
