Likutey Moharan

While I have learned some Breslover seforim in the past, I have never tried to learn Likutey Moharan due to its difficulty. I recently finished learning Likutey Etzos [also known as Kitzur Likutey Moharan] and now with the brocha of Rabbi Brody, am going to attempt to slowly start learning Likutey Moharan. Before I begin, I am going to finish these two books on Rebbe Nachman of Breslov.

I believe that Likute Etsot is a different work than Kitsur Likute Moharan, though they cover much of the same territory. Likute Etsot is arranged alphabetically by subject, while Kitsur Likute Moharan is arranged according to the chapters in Likute Moharan. They both contain the practical applications of R' Nahman's teachings and leave out the discursive prooftexts. I am not sure, but I think that Likute Etsot also contains teachings that originate in sources other than Likute Moharan (e.g. Sihot ha-Ran). Good luck learning Likute Moharan. The excellent English translation with extensive commentary put out by Breslov Research Institute will be helpful. They haven't finished the entire Likute Moharan yet. They have covered alot of chapters, though.
