A maamar is a meditation on chassidic mystical thought, originally spoken by a rebbe from within a deep, contemplative state. Here is a condensation of the maamar that was first recited by the fifth rebbe of Lubavitch when he became bar mitzvah , then by his son, and since then by countless bar mitzvah boys. We would like to study Torah day and night, but we are preoccupied with the necessities of life. How do we know that our mitzvahs have an effect?

Excluding those recited by the first Rebbe, Shneur Zalman of Liadi , himself, Maamarim build upon the founding intellectual Chabad method of the Tanya by the first Rebbe, each subsequent Rebbe developing the thought in successive stages, to seek broader explanation, communication and application. Chabad texts tend to systematic characterisation and presentation compared to the more homiletical-faith aims of most Hasidic literature.
