Well, the mishnah quite clearly states : ??? ??? ??? ?????? ???? ???? ??? ????? ?????? ?????? ???????? – implying simchah would apply throughout.
Sefer Hatodaah by R’ Eliyahu KiTov explains at great length the tragedy of the Septuagint. The translation provided, as any translation is, could only be at a very literal level meaning the homiletical, allegorical and mystical interpretations implicit in each and every letter of the Torah was abandoned. This left the Torah “an empty shell”. Coxnversely, Onkelos still retains these levels of deepness, after all, his Targum stems from Har Sinai. Furthermore, the translation meant the non – jews would claim to have a holding in the torah and could now find fault with it, stripping the reverence of the Torah away.December 31, 2015 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm in reply to: What did people do before Rashi invented Rashi tefillin? #1120102
The Smag (Asei 22) mentions a set of Tefillin corresponding to Rashi’s version found buried around the kever of Yechezkel in modern say Iraq. The Drishah (O.C 34) rejects this as a proof for Rashi Tefillin as these may have been buried because they were Pasul! The Bach however argues that a such a matter wouldn’t have warranted a burial as the parshiyos could’ve been rearranged. All in all, one can’t conclude from a single discovered artifact. Interestingly, archeologists around the dead sea have discovered both sets of tefillin.

Do people really think that the building itself has intrinsic kedushah in it so it can appear on such a holy aretefact such as a tefilin bag?
Wow, it housed a holy rebbe but does that mean the building is holy?

The Msgen Avraham (1:3) also says that even though one should get up strongly like a lion to serve Hashem, one shouldn’t stand up immediately because it’s dangerous as it says in Gemara Gittin 70a.
Sefer Chareidim says that one of the keys of life is to constantly talk to hashem
