    Vedic wisdom is the supreme wisdom. All existing religions are offshoots of this Eternal Truth passed on from master to master for ages. Time changes, people come and go but the Truth stays. You are here because of your past karma and unless you transcend the cycle of Birth and Death, you will have to come again and again. Our sole purpose is to grow together in this great knowledge. The Vedas are tools given to mankind by the ancient seers to help us grow in consciousness. We must turn our focus inward and use these sacred sciences to know ourselves and the world around us. In this way, we can help others and ultimately become liberated from all birth and...read more

    This short treatise was accounted by some of the Fathers as next to Holy Scripture. It was rediscovered in 1873 by a Greek Orthodox metropolitan of Nicomedia, in the codex from which, in 1875, he had published the full text of the Epistles of St. Clement. An old Latin translation was found in 1900. For convenience the contents may be divided into three parts: the first is the "Two Ways", the Way of Life and the Way of Death; the second part is a rituale dealing with baptism, fasting, and Holy Communion; the third speaks of the ministry. Doctrinal teaching is presupposed, and none is imparted. The Didache is mentioned by Eusebius after the books of Scripture (Church History III.25.4): "Let...read more
