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.

Quote of the Week 44 - The Temple Sacrifices

“Now, some people say…when we are able to build the Temple again, we will resume offering animal sacrifices. But they misunderstand something: it wasn’t that the Temple was destroyed and therefore we could not offer animal sacrifices but that the form of offering animal sacrifices to God had already been outgrown. It was not a functional system anymore.”
- from Wrapped in a Holy Flame, Teachings and Tales of the Hasidic Masters, by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi
