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.

Quote of the Week 234 - The Heart as Cremation Ground

Of course, it hurts to become yourself.
Birth hurts, death hurts.
But this struggle is God,
whose temple is the cremation ground.
Constant struggle – that is your offering,
what is sacred, what is God’s.
Constant defeat doesn’t mean anything.
Light your little name and its hopes on fire,
make of your heart a cremation ground,
and let Mother dance there.

--from a free translation and interpretation of Swami Vivekananda’s poem “And Let Shyama Dance There” by Peter Schneidre (Hiranyagarbha)
