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.

Quote of the Week 33 - The Wisdoms

The following are quotes attributable to The Vilna Goan and the Maharal of Prague, respectively, contained in Jacobs’s Ladder and the Anatomy of Meditation, by Bill Heilbronn:
“When the light of the Torah came into the world, it split. One part went directly into Torah and one part went into the various wisdoms of the world. And the time will come when the light that went into the other wisdoms will come back and interact with the light of the Torah, revealing dimensions in the Torah that were not revealed to us before. According to how much a man lacks knowledge of the other wisdoms, correspondingly he will lack knowledge of Torah wisdom.”
“The other wisdoms are ladders upon which we may ascend to the wisdom of Torah.”
