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 373 - Transforming Our Inner Beast

According to the scriptures, every human being is born with three qualities: animal, human, and divine.

During infancy and early childhood, all three tendencies manifest, and all three seek an environment in which to grow and find expression. Because there is a divine being, a human being, and an animal within each individual, a baby can be raised as a sage, as a gentle loving human, or as a criminal. Through proper training, education, and loving guidance, the beast within can be transformed first into a pet and then into a human. The same human can later expeand his or her consciousness and become divine.

Quote of the Week 279 - Reasons to Go to Synagogue


That wonderful storyteller Harry Golden makes this point in one of his stories. When he was young, he once asked his father, “If you don’t believe in God, why do you go to synagogue so regularly?” His father answered, “Jews go to synagogue for all sorts of reasons. My friend Garfinkle, who is Orthodox, goes to talk to God. I go to talk to Garfinkle.”

--from When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner
