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 263 - Nada: Ahata and Anahata

The word nada means “sound”, or that which is heard by the human ear… Nada is sound produced through the regular and constant vibration of some object in space…When the equilibrium of an object is disturbed (for example, by striking it, hitting it, shaking it, or rubbing it against another object), then sound is produced. Such sound is called: ahata nada, or “struck sound.”

In deep meditation, the yogi actually hears another type of nada. There is no sound in the external world that corresponds to this internal one. This eternal inner sound vibrates in space (akasha) without apparent cause. It is called anahata nada, or “unstruck sound.” 

--from Indian Music, Volume 1, by Swami Rama
