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.

Quote of the Week 65 - A.D. Gordon

“And when you, O human, will return to Nature, that day your eyes will open, you will stare straight into the eyes of Nature and in its mirror you will see your image. You will know…that when you hid from Nature, you hid from yourself…We who have been turned away from Nature – if we desire life, we must establish a new relationship with Nature.”
- A.D. Gordon, quoted in On the Wings of Shekhinah, Rediscovering Judaism’s Divine Feminine, by Rabbi Leah Novick

Hello, Steve. It's been a while. If life is what we make it, what role does He play?

Steve Gold said...

Life in the realm of the relative is what we collectively make it, and the collective includes all He’s, he’s, She’s, she’s, It’s, it’s and genderless beings and entities of every kind, from the lowest to the highest, from the most gross to the most subtle, from the most sacred to the most mundane, all of which have a role to play, whether they know it or not. In the realm of the absolute, there is only One beyond all distinction and beyond all roles.
