Once, an individual came to Rimanov seeking the counsel of R. Tzvi Hersh.
Seeker: “I wish to do teshuvah,”
Rebbe: “Who is stopping you?”
Seeker: “I am looking for the source of the evil in order to uproot it.”
Rebbe: “Is this why you came to Rimanov?”
Seeker: “To Rimanov?! I am searching throughout the whole world..”
The Rebbe laughed and replied: “You are wasting your time. Don’t search for the evil in Rimanov or anywhere else – the source of the evil is in you, yourself.”
