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 103 - Laughter

The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.

--Mark Twain


The four solemn Zen vows:

“Creations are numberless, I vow to free them.

Delusions are inexhaustible, I vow to transform them.

Reality is boundless, I vow to perceive it.

The awakened way is inexhaustible, I vow to embody it!”


The four solemn Zen vows, revised by Michael Dobbs, director of a Zen Center on Long Island and a member of the Order of Disorder, (OD or “odd” for short), a loose alliance of Zen practitioners with clowning skills:

“Creations are numberless, I vow to count them.

Delusions are inexhaustible, as if you hadn’t noticed.

Reality is boundless, and so are parts of Long Island.

The OD way is unavoidable; what were we chanting about?”

--Taken from August 2009 issue of Ode Magazine
