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 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


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 238 - You are the Shine of the Lord

You are composed of three selves, the mortal bodily self, composed of the body,  the breath, and the conscious mind, the semi-immortal self, composed of the unconscious mind, and the immortal self, composed of the Divinity/the Lord  of the Universe within…When you speak of yourself, which self are you speaking of? Your constant focus should be on the fact that you are the shine of the Lord.

--Swami Rama, from a lecture on Sri Vidya
