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 378 - Core Teaching of Buddhism


The core teaching of Buddhism is to help people become less self-centered and learn how to give love to others.


--Lama Surya Dass, as quoted in Spirituality and Health magazine, September/October 2017 issue

CURRENT TEACHING SESSIONS

I will be making a presentation at the Atlanta Southeast Limmud this Labor Day weekend, with the following title:

Job’s Second Daughters and the Kabbalah of the Unicorn.

There has been much existential hand-wringing discussion over the centuries about the Book of Job. However, there has been little focus on the significance of the concluding verses and his second set of daughters. Come explore these interesting passages and the mystical significance of how one daughter’s name relates to a single-horned creature, sometimes associated with a unicorn.

Quote of the Week 21 - How the Soul Leaves the Body

Different methods of how the soul leaves the body either when the body is asleep or when the person is meditating:

The first method is the Roll-over Technique. When the body is sleeping, the soul simply rolls over and out of the body.

The second technique is the Swinging or Pendulum Technique. The soul swings to the left and then swings to the right until it swings out of the body.

The third technique is the Inner Sound Technique. The inner sound becomes extremely loud and the inner consciousness is pulled out of the body through the sound, by listening to the inner sound. The sound is like a very loud buzzing sound, louder than the sound of a jet plane engine.

The fourth technique is the Spiraling Technique. The soul just simply spirals out of the body. The Inner Sound Technique is usually accompanied by the Spiraling Technique.
