    I think that this is the reason the chasidim wear a big talis katan to be yotzei the mitzva of tzitzis.

    Truth, see Teshuva Meahava 1:26 about the Zohar

    The Zohar, Rav Shimon bar Yochai says ישראל ואורייתא וקב’ה חד הוא can be understood seeing ourselves around a circle and Hashem is in the middle. All of us are equal distance from the center and part of the circle. Through the Torah we unite and become a smaller circle and eventually become one point which coincides with the center.

    RG, I don’t think he has to repeat the mitzva because according to the Beis Hilel you can say it being in any positiin which inckudes lying down.

    R’ Tarfon was a great anav who admitted himself he did wrong see Brochos Mishna (1,3) not like you. As mentioned before once the Shulchan Aruch was accepted by a majority we are bound to abide by it. The sefardim say לכו אל יוסף כל אשר יאמר לך תעשו and the ashkanezim say ובני ישראל יוצאים ביד רמה.

    Look at the Rabbenu Yonah on Brochos whether on who follows R’ Gamliel by Krias Shma, a small sukkah whether he is yotzei. Can the chazal take away a biblical mitzva? The Mishneh Lamelech (Rambam Hilchas Trumas 7:1) questions if a kohen is impure with a tuma derabonon and eats Truma is he chayev misoh?

    We find if the majority of people follow a certain behavior it becomes an obligation. Women listening to shofar and davening maariv etc, but for individual chumras it does not apply. Even the chidren don’t need to follow the father’s chumras. פיק חזו מה עמא דבר

    RG, I did not tell you that you should do it. You said you will not eat by someone who does not follow you, then I said to you, go to a sefardi and even according to the RMA there are who to rely on and Daas Yochid said you can eat by them.

    The Otzar Yisroel Encyclopedia explains that each one individually called Tefilla and together they are called Tefilin. It comes from the word פלא which has many meanings, speech, separation, prayer and hidden. Speech as mentioned above, remembering Yetzias Mitzraim. Prayer, used for praying, tying us to Hashem. Separation, it separates us from the goyim, recognizing that the name of Hashem is on us, and hidden, maybe, the parshiyus are hidden.

    Maybe, Tatofos refers to Rosh because it has multiple batim. As explained by the Meiri the head has four senses, having four batim to subjugate our senses whereas the hand has only one.

    I think the difference is the cause and effect. For the litvish, cause is Torah and effect is Avodah, i.e. Torah brings to Avodah, whereas for the Chasidim is the reverse, cause is Avodah and effect is Torah, we daven to understand Torah . It says עת לעשות לה’ הפרו תורתך, they differ how to interpret this pasuk. The litvishe say that we must accomodate and show leniency when people disrupt the Torah whereas the Chasidim see the reverse הפרו תורתך עת לעשות לה. When people want to disrupt the Torah, we must be steadfast and not budge an inch strengthening customs and beliefs for the sake of Hashem Yisborach.

    I jusr wanted to validate my view. We see that what RG is saying iis not correct as you can eat by someone not following your chumras. About eating hot, we want to show that we don’t follow the keroim about cooking on shabbos which was started erev shabbos.

    If you put the food on when the hot plate is cold on shabbos and you set your shabbos clock to turn it on after you put it on, it does not matter that it becomes yad soledes bo. Since the way you put the food on will not become yad soledes, I think it should be ok.

    RG, My father had a saying, every house has their own minhag. Respect all minhogim whether they follow yours or not, or יצא שכרו בהפסדו. This is the difference between halacha and minhag. מנהג ישראל תורה for those who follow the minhag and for others to respect them. The Chasam Sofer said minhag has the letters gehinam. Now I understand its ,meaning. People can end up in the gehinam when they look down on others minhogim.

    There happens to be a question about fasting on their own. See SA O’CH 571:1-2 is he sinning or becomes holy. People learning should not weaken themselves. When someone fasts a taanis chalom on shabbos, even though it is beneficial for him, he has to fast another fast.

    RG, there is no help for you. It means don’t be a glutten like a dog. The nazir is a sinner because he refrains from things that are mutar. For everything assur we find something that tastes like it and being mutar. Hashem creating the world to share everything with us עולם חסד יבנה as the midrash on tehilim explains. As in everything the middle way is the best. Chanoch was taken away because he wanted to be a hermit and he behaved like a malach. There is no place for malachim in this world.

    Be careful with all the chumros not be like a dog who wants to make everything tref in order thar it should get more. The Neviim needed proof from the Torah to establish anything new. The Torah gives us guidelines for chumras:

    1. The Chachomin according to the Rambam are ovar on Baal Tosif if they say fowl is assur biblically to eat with milk,
    2. If you add to it, you show the Torah is incomplete and thereby you can also take away from it

    If there is no yetzer hora, then all the mitzvos, as we know them, will disappear since there will not be any outside resistance and no yetzer tov and everything will be done because we will recognize that they will be the right things to do. This world will turn into olam habo as Adam before his sin. All other answers are related to the yetzer hora.

    Everyone agrees that Shavuos needs lochem. The shtei halechem was chametz because if not for the yetzer hora, the Torah would have never been given to us but to the malochim. Alao, we can allow because of the Torah some more indulgence as we have a band aid that keeps us protected.
