WELCOME TO TORAH-VEDA

Torah and Veda are two ancient sources of spirituality still vibrant today. Torah is conveyed through the sacred language of Hebrew and Veda is conveyed through the sacred language of Sanskrit. The focus here is on meditation, mysticism, philosophy, psychology and the underlying spirituality that has been incorporated into religions, and not as much on the religions themselves. Your comments and posts are welcome.

Piper, sell your pipes, buy your wife a gown…

Piper, sell your pipes, buy your wife a gown…

Piper, sell your pipes, buy your wife a gown…

I wouldn’t sell my pipes for all with wives in town…

Quote of the Week 405 - The Immediacy of Direct Experience


Quote of the Week 405 - The Immediacy of Direct Experience

It is …immediacy of direct experience that inducts us into the greater mystery, where all phenomena are miraculous appearance.

Quote of the Week 404 - The Way It Is


Quote of the Week 404 - The Way It Is

There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change.  But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.

- William Stafford
