(Based on the book Shamati)

Said Rabbi Ishmael: If you met Menuval (bastard), bring it to the House of Study.

First of all I must say that we are talking about our home, "scum", which is not at all. Scum called desire to receive (to yourself) when the person realizes that it causes evil and wants to get rid of it.

There are three steps (effort) that you have to pass.

1. Bring Menuvalya in the House of Study - means to learn Torah. And this stage of the Torah.

2. And if you did not help - it is necessary to read the Shema Yisrael - is merging with the Creator. This stage of the Holy One, blessed be He (Kadosh Baruch hy).

3. If this does not work - it is worth recalling Menuvalyu the day of his death - so Mesirat Nefesh (lay down) *. This stage of Israel, because Israel is likened to a dove, to substitute his neck under the sacrificial knife.

The question arises: why not apply once the most powerful force? The whole point is that help (get rid of Menuvalya) are three forces together. As mentioned, the Torah and the Holy One, blessed be He, and Israel - one.


* It is not about donating life (because it Mesirat Gough - donation to the body), but the animal soul, or rather about her desires.
