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 66 - Georg Feuerstein

"Psychospiritual technology is more than applied knowledge and wisdom. It is also an instrument of knowledge, insofar as its use opens up new vistas of self-understanding, including the higher dimensions of the world that form the reaches of inner space."
"The Indian liberation teachings – the great Yogas of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikkhism – clearly represent an invaluable resource for contemporary humankind. We have barely scratched the surface of what they have to offer us. It is obvious, however, that in order to find our way out of the tunnel of materialistic scientism, we require more than knowledge, information, statistics, mathematical formulas, sociopolitical programs, or technological solutions. We are in need of wisdom. And what better way is there to rejuvenate our hearts and restore the wholeness of our being than on he wisdom of the East, especially the great lucid insights and realizations of the Indian seers, sages mystics and holy folk?"
--From The Yoga Tradition, Its History, Literature, Philosophy and Practice by Georg Feurstein
