Here’s my short answer to the original question (there’s more to say). 
It really depends a lot on the strength of the connection you have before you open the Torah Tome

I beleive that the Tanya says b’feirush that Torah is mechapeir on zera levatala, but I don’t recall where he says that.

It’s in אגרת התשובה. The Baal HaTanya brings in the fourth Perek from the Zohar that אין תשובה מועלת למוציא ז״ל. He then brings the ראשית חכמה which says that the meaning of that is that is only true with regards to תשובה תתאה, but not תשובה עילאה, which does help. I don’t have time to explain what those to levels are, but in Perek 8-9 he explains that תשובה עילאה means to learn Torah with דחילו ורחימו.
For the background to my name- see Tanya פרק טו.
