In 5700/1950, after the passing of the Previous Rebbe, the present Rebbe said that we should continue to write to him and ask him for blessings - “And he will always find a way to answer.” This practice is also followed today, when we read our requests at the gravesite. People who live too far away to go there in person send their requests to the same address as before, and the Rebbe’s secretaries bring all these letters to the gravesite.
In the Kabbalah, and in Chassidus, it is explained that right now the Rebbe is even closer to us than before. When he lived among us, his lofty soul was clothed within a physical body, but now that the limitations of this material world have been removed, our connection with the Rebbe transcends the barriers of time and space. Anyone who feels a connection with the Rebbe should know that the Rebbe is also connected with him. He listens to him and prays for him.
All of us who have merited knowing the Rebbe and have benefited from his great light have the strength to increase our connection to him. May the Rebbe’s blessings continue to guide us and help us to fulfill G-d’s will, realizing the purpose of our creation on
