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.

Description:

This workshop will have as its focus the text of my latest book, Basic Spiritual Principles. The idea of this book and workshop, as encompassed in the title, is to present in simple and straightforward terms some basic principles related to spirituality and spiritual processes and revelations without getting too complex, involved or abstruse. It provides a framework to help address life’s essential existential questions: Why am I here? Where did I come from? How did I get here? How did ‘here’ get here? Where am I going? What is the purpose of my life? What is life and this thing we call existence? What is it all about? Please note that it doesn’t claim to answer these questions, it only claims to provide a framework, a perspective, an orientation that may be helpful in addressing these questions. The “answers” are a matter for individual self-discovery.

In addition, we will examine an analysis of the opening sentences of Genesis within this framework. Perhaps Genesis is not just a description of the workings of the external universe, but also of the internal universe that exists within each of us. Genesis like you’ve never seen it before!

Included in the class fee is a copy of my new book, Basic Spiritual Principles.
