A Rosh Hashanah Meditation

Once, after Rosh Hashanah prayers, the Alter Rebbe asked his son, the Mitteler Rebbe, “With what meditation did you pray this Rosh Hoshanah?” He replied, “With the verse, ‘All mankind shall prostrate themselves before You’.” Then the Mitteler Rebbe asked his father, “With what meditation did you pray?” The Alter Rebbe responded, “I prayed with my lectern.”
R. Schneur Zalman of Liadi (Alter Rebbe), Bittul, Prayer, High Holidays, Amud, Rosh Hashanah, Lubavitcher Rebbe

very moving, hearing and seeing the devotion and attention given by the crowd of followers to the alter rabbi while he imparts a lesson on submission and surrender like an inanimate obj to the One being prayed to on Rosh Hashanah. Reply
