I suppose that the Rabbi said this to the Talmid and has specific reasons, p.e. the Talmid do not learn successfully the Yeshiva Programm. The Rabbi do not wrote an Halacha "Daf Hayomi is forbidden for Talmid Yeshiva". May be also that the pupil do not understand the real reasons of his Rabbi.

First of all, I'd like to point out that there's no end to Torah (see just about any cheesy reason for why the Gemara starts on Daf Beis), so it's physically impossible to know kol haTorah kulah anyway. What I can tell you is that the Gemara in Kiddushin (30a-ish) darshens the passuk of v'shinantem l'vanecha as v'shilashtem and advises one to divide his ...

In reckoning the correspondences of a word, it is traditional in gematria to consider also words having a total one less and one more than that of the number in question. This practice is stated as: "it is permissible to add or subtract an Aleph". An examination of the entries for consecutive numbers in this dictionary will show that some words duplicate ...
