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 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

CURRENT TEACHING SESSIONS

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.

Quotes of the Week 59 - Lamentations

From Lamentations:

God’s kindness surely has not ended, nor are His mercies exhausted. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. “God is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I have hope in Him.” God is good to those who trust in Him; to the soul that seeks Him. It is good to hope silently for God’s salvation. It is good for a man that he bear a yoke in his youth. Let one sit in solitude and be submissive, for He has laid it upon him. Let him put his mouth to the dust – there may yet be hope. 3:22-29

Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that evil and good emanate? Of what shall a living man complain? A man for his sins! Let us search and examine our ways and return to God. Let us lift our hearts with our hands to God in heaven. 3:38-41
