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.

Quote of the Week 19 - For Free

"Every one who is thirsty, come and drink. He who has no money, come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good. Let your soul delight in abundance." Isaiah 55:1-3

This very clearly contains a message that biblical words are often used figuratively and not literally. Obviously, the thirst and hunger referenced here is not on the physical level, and the satisfaction of these desires is likewise to be fulfilled other than on the physical level, and for free, or for a price that everyone can afford, with assets that everyone has available to them. The key is to "listen carefully" in order to partake of the abundance available on the level of the soul, an obvious reference to meditation on the inner sound, the "still, small voice within" (which phrase is contained in another portion of the Prophets).
