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 82 - Synesthesia at Sinai

Now all of the people were seeing the thunder-sounds, the flashing torches, the shofar sound, and the mountain smoking; when the people saw, they faltered and stood far off. They said to Moshe: You speak with us, and we will hearken, but let not God speak with us, lest we die! Moshe said to the people: Do not be afraid! For it is to test you that God has come, to have awe of him be upon you, so that you do not sin. The people stood far off, and Moshe approached the fog where God was.

--Exodus 20:15-18 [This is immediately after God spoke the words of the Ten Commandments directly to the assembled multitude at the foot of Mt. Sinai]; Everett Fox Translation
