Tikkun HaKlali - The General Remedy
Tehillim 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137 and 150
Tikkun HaKlali, a powerful rectification revealed by the holy Rebbe Nachman of Breslov - a selection of Ten Psalms that Rabbi Nachman recommened for recital as a general spiritual remedy bringing inner purity and joy as well as many other benefits. These psalms are: 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137 and 150.
They are to be recited in the same order in which they appear in Sefer Tehillim (Book of Psalms). The Ten Psalms correspond to the Ten Kinds of Song. These ten melodies are the true remedy. There is a specific remedy for each sin, but this is the General Remedy. (Sichot Haran #141)
Rebbe Nachman: There are places so fine and narrow that no remedy has the power to penetrate them except through the General Remedy, which injects healing into even the narrowest, finest places. First it is necessary to apply the General Remedy, and through this all the individual flaws will automatically be rectified. The General Remedy is higher and more exalted than all the individual remedies. But all the different remedies depend on the mind and brain: it is necessary to draw purity from the mind and brain. And the only way to elevate the mind is through the General Remedy. This is why it is first necessary to go to the higher level, the General Remedy, in order to rectify the mind and brain, and through this everything else is automatically rectified.
Many great Tzaddikim tried to discover this remedy and labored hard to find it. Some had no idea at all of the true remedy. Others began to grasp it, only to be taken from the world before they could grasp it completely. But G-d has helped me gain complete understanding of this matter. The remedy of the Ten Psalms is entirely original. It is a most wonderful and awesome remedy. It is certainly best if you can immerse in a mikveh and then say the Ten Psalms. But even if you are sick or traveling and unable to immerse, reciting the Psalms alone is a great remedy. If you can say the Psalms with devotion and feeling, it is best. But even just saying the words helps.
This remedy has not been revealed since the time of creation.
Bear witness to my words. When my days are over and I leave this world, I will still intercede for anyone who comes to my grave, says these Ten Psalms and gives a penny to charity. No matter how great his sins, I will do everything in my power, spanning the length and breadth of creation , to save him and cleanse him.... I am very positive in everything I say. But I am most positive in regard to the great benefit of these Ten Psalms.
(Sichot Haran #141, Likutey Moharan I, 29)
