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 72 - Enough

The book’s title comes from a poem Kurt Vonnegut once wrote about a party he and fellow author Joseph Heller attended on Shelter Island in the Hamptons, New York’s playground for the rich and famous.
Vonnegut recalled telling Heller that their host, a billionaire hedge fund manager, had made more money in a day than Heller had in the whole history of his novel Catch-22.
"Well," Heller said, "I’ve got something he can never have."
"What," Vonnegut asked, "might that be?"
"The knowledge that I’ve got enough," Heller replied.

--James Pressley, Bloomberg News, in his book review of Enough, True Measures of Money, Business and Life, by John C. Bogle, founder of Vanguard Mutual Fund Group
