Tikkun Leil Shavuos - Sudilkov Minhag

I just found out from the Sudilkover Rebbe that the minhag for saying Tikkun Leil Shavuos in Sudilkov was to say it without the Mishnayos. This is what I will plan to do tonight.

The Breslov Center's customs document contains the following entry on this topic:

Reb Nosson states that the main parts of Tikkun Leyl Shavuot are TaNaKh and Mishnayot. (Although the ARI zal omits the Mishnayos, the Shelah Hakodesh includes them.)
(Likkutei Halakhos, Kriyas ha-Torah 6:26)

PS: I believe Reb Eizikl of Komarno also didn't say the Mishnayos -- following the Arizal.

May we be zokheh to kabbolas ha'Torah be'ahavah!

I find it curious that it says the Arizal omits mishnayos. I used the Heichel Menachem Tikun which is al pi nusach arizal and it did indeed include tanach, mishnayos, zohar and the taryag mitzvos (guessing the chinuch's version.)

The mishnayos are fairly long though so I envy the extra sleep you got : )

I heard in a Shiur from R. Hadaia, Shlita, of Beit El,that those who can learn Torah should just learn Torah.

And yet, there were many great Tsaddikim who simply read the Tikkun.

Rav Safrin of Komarno told me that he reads the Tikkun, goes to the Mikve, around 2 or 3 am, and then goes to sleep to rest up for Shacharis, not makpid to stay up all night and daven vatikin ("sunrise" Shacharis)

The holy Yehudi of Pershiska would not learn Torah on the night of Shevuos. He said, "derech eretz kadmah l'Torah." How could you learn the Torah before recieving the Torah? THe Holy Yehudi would stay up all night, preparing himself to receive the Torah anew. How did he prepare himself? Waiting, standing, "b'eyma, b'Yita, b'retet, ub'zeiah." (With awe, with fear, with trembling, and with sweat.)

Over Shavuos, I read that the Satmar Rebbe (R' Yoel) used to say just the Tanach section of the Tikkun.
