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.

Quotes of the Week 142 - More Gems from Swami Rama Tirtha

The good man confers a blessing on the world by merely living.


Vice is our name for self-inflicted injury.


The distinguishing sign of slavery is to have a price and be bought for it.


Worldly riches and honors are the fig leaves with which the shamed soul attempts to hide its nakedness.


There is always room for a man of force, and he makes room for many.

A man seeing a very small arc of a very vast circle easily mistakes it for a straight line.


Let us have at least the dignity of trees and rivers.


To act by means of inaction is God.


Man’s unhappiness, as I construe, comes of his greatness; it is because there is an infinite in him, which with all his cunning he cannot quite bury under the finite.


We are near awakening when we dream that we dream.



--Swami Rama Tirtha
