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 60 - Appreciate Life, Imageless Prayer

Once you have decided to begin the spiritual path, a good way to get started is in prayer, and a good beginning in prayer is to try to walk around appreciating Life itself. Not any particular of Life, just Life itself. And try to Feel that appreciation, not simply Think about it. Try to Feel grateful for Life.

When one is truly worshipping God, he has no image in his mind. True worship of God is without any picture in the mind or notions in mind about the appearance or nature of God. To truly worship God without images is the Esoteric meaning behind the command – “though shalt have no other images before me.” God is an imageless prayer for man.
