1. A person who seeks to learn Torah in a state of purity should marry before he sets out to learn Torah.
2. Rebbi Yochanan maintains that when a Talmid Chacham learns Torah at night, he is considered to be occupied in the Avodah.
3. The Torah states, "Isheh Rei'ach Nicho'ach" with respect to an Olas Behemah, Olas ha'Of, and a Minchah, in order to teach that one who gives less is equal to one who gives more, as long as his intentions are purely for Shamayim.
4 The Korbanos are not for the "Ratzon" of Hashem. Hashem does not receive any benefit from the Korban. Rather, the Korbanos are for our benefit.
5. If a Kohen is "Mis'asek" when he slaughters a Korban, the Korban is Pasul.

1. However, this applies only to Talmidei Chachamim of Bavel, who travel to Yeshivah to learn after marriage. In contrast, the Talmidei Chachamim of Eretz Yisrael, who do not travel afar to learn Torah, should learn Torah prior to marrying, because the yolk of providing for their family will hinder their learning.
2. Rebbi Yochanan also says that a when a Talmid Chacham studies the Halachos of the Avodah, it is considered as though the Beis ha'Mikdash was built in his days.
3. This is true both for Korbanos and for Torah learning. One who learns only a little but his intentions are purely for the sake of Shamayaim will be rewarded equally to one who learns much.
4. The Korbanos atone for us, because when we offer them we fulfill the Will of Hashem, Who commanded us to bring the Korbanos.
5. "Mis'asek" means that the Kohen was engaged in another activity and the Shechitah that he performed was done without intent.
