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 140 - Nondual Judaism

Michaelson says that there is a secret at the heart of the Zohar and other Jewish teachings: that “despite appearances, all things, and all of us, are like ripples on a single pond, motes of a single sunbeam, the letters of a single word.” Yet the question may arise: If everything is God, then why be Jewish? Michaelson responds that Jewish forms are “neither superior nor necessary” but that they are “the vocabulary of his heart” and the “technology of his body.” Mystics of other traditions will doubtless echo this view.


--From a book review in the magazine, Spirituality and Health, written by Kristine Morris, about the book Everything is God; The Radical Path of Nondual Judaism, by Jay Michaelson.
