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 34 - Humility

From UK Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks:
“Rabbi Hayyim ibn Attar (Ohr ha-Hayyim) adds a further fascinating insight [regarding the command in the Torah to not ill-treat a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in Egypt]. It may be, he says, that the very sanctity that Israelites feel as children of the covenant may lead them to look down on those who lack a similar lineage. Therefore they are commanded not to feel superior to the ger [stranger, sojourner, foreigner in their land], but instead to remember the degradation their ancestors experienced in Egypt. As such, it becomes a command of humility in the face of strangers.”
