“You a prayin’ man, huh? What do you pray for? You pray for the world?” I never thought about praying for the world. I said, “I pray that I can be a kinder person.”
-from Chronicles, Volume One by Bob Dylan
Formerly Yoga and Judaism Center, the mission of Torah-Veda is to provide an avenue for the awakening, nurturance and expression of spirituality, with a focus on the nondual mystical traditions of Torah/Kabalah and Veda/Vedanta. We seek the common threads that exist between these and various other spiritual and mystical traditions, exploring the possibilities for a new synthesis relevant to the spiritual needs of today. All are welcome.
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
