Answer: All over the world, humanity is heading toward discovery of the Creator. And for this purpose it is absolutely clear that it is necessary to begin to get closer to each other and include all the egoism in this rapprochement.
Therefore it is not enough to be a Tzaddik in the physical sense. In addition, today we are not in such serene conditions as before. Ego has grown in every one of us, and it is up to us to correct it fundamentally so that instead of rejecting each other, we must connect among us. This is our work.
