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 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


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.

Hebrew Mantras



Naagarazan said...

A friend of mine mentioned that there is Hebrew mantra blessed by Jesus when the followers wanted to fight the enemies and overcome sufferings. It ran something loike: "aum ignaou miksup". This is said to be usually contemplated by Fathers and Sisters.
May I know the correct version of this mantra. Kindly oblige. Thanking you, Naagarazan

Thank you for your inquiry. I am sorry, but I am not familiar with what you are referring to. Certainly Jesus knew both Aramaic and Biblical Hebrew, from which I derive the mantras I discuss, but I am not familiar with any specific Hebrew mantra used or blessed by Jesus as you describe. You can try entered "Jesus mantra" in your search engine, and you will find all kinds of things, some of which are sort of close to what you have described.
