Mussar | Introduction | Part Two
What exactly is Mussar? That term names a spiritual perspective and also a discipline of practices that can significantly change the way a person perceives the world and acts in it. Mussar also names a popular movement that developed primarily in Lithuania in the second half of the nineteenth century. The word mussar itself2 means “correction” or “instruction” and also serves as the simple modern Hebrew word for “ethics.”
But Mussar is most accurately described as a way of life that leads to realizing our highest spiritual potential, including an everyday experience infused with happiness, trust, and love.
