One might assume that after a tzaddik has ascended on high and experienced unlimited Divine revelation, he would no longer concern himself with matters of this physical world. For the Rebbe, however, such calculations don’t apply.
Shevat 10, Passing of a Tzaddik, The, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Connected
Disc 102, Program 407

Event Date: 10 Shevat 5711 - January 17, 1951

One might assume that after a tzaddik has ascended on high and experienced unlimited Divine revelation, he would no longer concern himself with matters of this physical world. For the Rebbe, however, such calculations don’t apply.

The Talmud teaches: “When the majority of a man’s years have passed and he has not sinned, it is certain that henceforth he will not sin either.” Certainly then, one who spent not only the majority of his years, but all the years of his life, in a state of continuous selfsacrifice, foregoing his own physical and spiritual needs for the sake of others, his soul most certainly chooses to remain connected with this world and his beloved flock.

One might think that with each additional yahrzeit that passes, his or her connection with the Rebbe weakens, G-d forbid. Let it be known that the exact opposite is true: As the Rebbe ascends each year to infinitely higher and higher levels of holiness, he shares greater and greater strength with each one of us to succeed in our mission.
