There was a castle made of water.
It had ten walls, one inside the other, all made of water. The floors inside the castle were also made of water. This castle also had trees and fruit, all made of water.
It goes without saying how beautiful this castle was, and how unusual. A castle of water is certainly something wonderful and unusual.
—The Seven Beggars, The Stories of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
The Water Castle: An in-depth look at Rebbe Nachman’s classic story within a story, translated by Dovid Sears, is a thoughtful, in places lyrical, translation of the commentary of Reb Noson, Rebbe Nachman’s leading student. Reb Nosson gives soul-stirring insights into The Water Castle, which is part of a larger story, The Seven Beggars.
