Understanding Torah

When one knows and comprehends this verdict as a halachah set forth in the Mishnah or Gemara or Poskim, he then actually comprehends and grasps the Will and wisdom of Hashem, Whom no thought can grasp, nor His Will and wisdom, except when Hashem’s Will and wisdom — clothe themselves in the halachot set before us.
His intellect is also clothed within the Divine Will and wisdom contained in Torah; his mind is encompassed by them.
Now this is a most wonderful unity; in the physical realm there in no similar unity or parallel to it, that they should actually become one and united from every side and angle.

(Tanya Chapter 5)
