48 Ways: #43 - A settled mind


Pirkei Avot 6:5 teaches that Torah is acquired in 48 ways, which it lists for us. The forty-third of the 48 is mityasheiv libo b'talmudo, that one learns with a settled mind.

Energy is necessary for success in most endeavours, but one who is restless will not focus on his studies for the extended period of time they may need. Rushing through a topic is an efficient way to guarantee misunderstanding. We need to approach Torah with a settled mind, prepared to carefully analyze it, in order to get it right.

Have a great day,
