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 62 - The Peaceful Hum

Vichara [the spiritual exercise of discriminating Self-Inquiry] is characterized by Ramana as attenuation of ego. Ego creates various melodic lines against the hum or drone of primal awareness. When listening to Indian classical music, Ramana reports, his main attention naturally focused on the rich underlying drone rather than on the melody. In the unillumined state, we hardly notice the profoundly integrating tone of primal awareness, because we are distracted by the play of ego. Self-realization, or Enlightenment, is the rediscovery of this peaceful hum of conscious being as a single eternal flow, which does not eliminate the countless melodic lines but harmonizes and grounds them.
