Bittul – Self-effacement

The Theory and Practice of ‘Bittul’ in Chabad Chasidism

Traditionally the mystical quest has focused on ascent from the world and supernal union (Devekut) with G-d. In Chabad, however, the focus is shifted to the attainment of self-effacement (Bittul).

“The Kabbalists explain that ratzon, will and desire, is the most powerful force within the human being.”
