Questions about the book Tanya, written by R' Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the first Rebbe of Lubavitch Chassidus.

Tanya is one of the works of the first Rebbe of Lubavitch, R' Shneur Zalman of Liadi. It represents the Chassidic approach to many fundamental ideas of Jewish Mysticism. Tanya marked the beginning of a movement within Chassidic thought towards a more broadly accessible, rigorous intellectual understanding of G-d. It is also known as "Likkutei Amarim" and "Sefer Shel Beinonim."
