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.

Torah-Veda
An Interspiritual Journey
Find Your Inspiration and Follow It



Quote of the Week 379 - Song


Those who wish to sing always find a song.

Announcing Publication of New Book, DIMENSIONS: Navigation the Spiritual Spectrum


I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book, DIMENSIONS: Navigating the Spiritual Spectrum, now available at Amazon, in paperback print and Kindle versions. It is easily found by searching my name, or by searching the full title and subtitle. You can also click on the image of the book in the right hand column of this blog.


What a great way to start the New Year, cozying up to a fire, real or imagined, and reading a new spiritually inspiring book, sure to become a classic!


DIMENSIONS: Navigating the Spiritual Spectrum

Grounded in the traditions of Torah and Veda, Steven J. Gold takes us on an oceanic tour of the depth and breadth of spiritual consciousness. Sharing personal stories and insights into various traditional scriptures as examples, he urges us to adopt a spiritual worldview, to “ponder infinity, awake and arise,” to “find your inspiration and follow it.”


“The chapters…are records of what happens when Steve’s right mind, and heart, are given full freedom to wander where they wish. As discoveries and correlations are made, his well-trained left mind and sharp wit give his observations shape and form…” – Brother Shankara, Resident Minister, Vedanta Center of Atlanta


“Universal Ice Cream: Dive deep into Steve’s wonderful book to help find your favorite flavor on the Spiritual Spectrum.” – Rabbi Mitch Cohen, Spiritual Leader, Congregation Shalom B’Harim, Dahlonega, GA

“Steven J. Gold’s Dimensions is an exploration of spirituality from the inside out. If you are looking for a guide through the pathless land of truth, read this book.” – Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of The World Wisdom Bible

YOGA AND JUDAISM, SECOND EDITION NOW AVAILABLE

In lieu of a Quote of the Week this week, I am pleased to announce the publication of YOGA AND JUDAISM, SECOND EDITION just in time for the fall Jewish Holiday season. For those who have purchased the first edition, please be reassured that it has not been rendered obsolete or useless by the Second Edition. Much of the substance of the material and message remains the same. However, the Second Edition does contain some corrections, many style and presentation revisions, and added material on Hebrew Mantras and Jewish Healing Meditation. Although the book materials contain some revisions, the substance of these new added materials is already available on the blog, so you don’t have to buy the new book just to obtain that new material. However, anyone who has already purchased the first edition is certainly welcome and encouraged to buy the Second Edition if you would like to have a spiffed-up volume complete with the new material all in one place. And I would certainly encourage any first-time buyers to purchase the Second Edition instead of the first. The Second Edition is currently available only at the publisher’s web site, http://stores.lulu.com/yajc or www.lulu.com and search “Yoga and Judaism”. It will take several weeks for it to work its way through the distribution system to become available through online retailers such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Borders. I will provide an updated notice when that happens.

In the meantime, why not start out the New Year through the transformative process of purchasing and reading YOGA AND JUDAISM, SECOND EDITION!!!

L’Shana Tova to All.
