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 378 - Core Teaching of Buddhism


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

CURRENT TEACHING SESSIONS

I will be making a presentation at the Atlanta Southeast Limmud this Labor Day weekend, with the following title:

Job’s Second Daughters and the Kabbalah of the Unicorn.

There has been much existential hand-wringing discussion over the centuries about the Book of Job. However, there has been little focus on the significance of the concluding verses and his second set of daughters. Come explore these interesting passages and the mystical significance of how one daughter’s name relates to a single-horned creature, sometimes associated with a unicorn.

Quote of the Week 201 - The Everlasting Light


As we enter this season of celebration of Divine Light as a counter-balance to the shortest hours of daylight, I share with you this quote from the Prophets:

Quote of the Week 201 - The Everlasting Light

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and God’s glory has risen upon you…Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising…you will see and be radiant, and your heart will throb and swell with joy…I will exchange your brass for gold, your iron for silver, your wood for brass, your stones for iron; I will also make your officers Peace and your rules Righteousness…The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor will the moon give light for brightness. But God will be your everlasting light, and your God your glory. Your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane. For God will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning will be ended.

Isaiah 60:1-20 (Haftorah of Ki Tavo)
