A lesson in Tanya

The one & only time the Chasam Sofer ever quotes from the
ספר ליקוטי אמרים*,  known as the תניא is in this week's
Parsha (בהעלתך).

The Tanya writes, that when a person sins he also drags
along and sins with his Neshama the חלק אלוה that is
within him. 

The Chasam Sofer explains with this the Pasuk
of ויבכו גם בני ישראל

Not only did the אספסוף the evil part within him sin but
also the נשמת ישראל the חלק אלוה sinned.

The Chasam Sofer (Shu"t O.Chaim 16) argues on the ספר ליקוטי אמרים
The Ch.S. claims that this Sefer is not available in the whole
city and even if it would be available he wouldn't have time for it.
The Sefer he is referring to is not the Tanya but the 
ליקוטי אמרים
from the Mezritcher Magid.
