Three reasons not to write the Tanya:
- Not everyone has enough clarity to understand what he reads without getting confused.
- If a sefer is a product only שכל אנושי, human intellect, it’s reach and appeal is limited.
- Even when the Sefer is a product of שכל אלוקי, G-dly intellect, the complexity of הנסתרות, the hidden parts of Torah, makes it almost impossible to identify your part and avoda in Chassidus.
