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 368 - Staged Dramas, Imagined and Real Life

A few therapists who use the technique of “psycho-drama” may stage an imagined scene to help a person see the misery-causing roles he habitually plays and how to change them. But a spiritual teacher, seeing that all life is drama for the purpose of growth, is more likely to stage “real life” dramas in order to bring out and correct disturbances in his students. Because of the greater sense of “reality,” these learning experiences are usually extremely impactful.

--Swami Rama and Swami Ajaya, Creative Use of Emotion, p. 74
