The Tanya was written for really smart people
The chassidim studied Tanya...
Once a decade
The words of Tanya and us
Mitteler( Friedeker, Alter, Mitteler ) Rebbe told a chassid to say Tanya
words of Torah( Tanya, Tehillim, words of Torah ) during take-off and landing as well as while boarding a train so as to protect
reveal( protect, release, reveal ) the chassid from
in( from, to, in ) any harm
relief( harm, joy, relief ) that might come on him during the journey.
Tanya is only for travels.
Where do we first show a child the "aleph beis"?

Wherever we want - it doesn't matter
One starts learning Tanya on a really high level.
How is the Tanya like Chumash?
Both are written on parchment.
All Jews learn both.
They were both forbidden in the chanuka story.
Everyone understands both at their own level.
No one ever fully understands either.
For both, it's forbidden to have a blue cover.
The authors of both are chabad rebbeim.
The said "We can see the approach to learning is like chumash; the person cannot reach its depth yet the smallest person can still begin to it."
It is required for all Jews to learn Tanya.
There are six constant
joyous( constant, repetitive, pointless, joyous ) mitzvos, and one of them is to believe in Hashem and His oneness and to love and fear Him. The only we can do this is by studying chassidus
physiotherapilympics( chassidus, chumash, famous PhD's, physiotherapilympics ), especially Tanya
subdermatoglyphics( Tanya, physiotherapilympics, subdermatoglyphics ) since Tanya concentrates on these topics.
