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 272 - The Need for a New Translation


We need to clear out centuries of negative connotations of Hebraic words in the Torah text whose alternatively correct translations bespeak a more positive and healing voice than the voice we have been reared with. It is long overdue that we re-translate our Torah to reflect the root translations of words that have been taken so far out of context that it has rendered so much of this sacred and enriching ancient body of wisdom cold and intimidating.

--Rabbi Gershon Winkler
