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 359 - You Wake Up!

Beyond our dualistic view of life exists one Ocean of Truth. Within that Truth, human nature can experience unity without loss of unique distinction. You can experience a stillness beyond reactivity. You can live from kindness. You can embrace impermanence, appreciating the arising and letting go within each moment. You recognize cling and aversion as the cause of all suffering. You wake up!

The Nine Gates Mystery School invites today’s students into an embodied journey of this awakening – through birth, death of the false idea of self and a rebirth into an awakened state of Consciousness. After one taste of this Ocean, you won’t stop drinking until you become the Ocean itself.
