SPECIAL PRESENTATION In September, 2015, a devastating fire (called the "Valley Fire") swept through a large area of Lake County, California, with extraordinary speed, burning virtually everything in its path, before 4,000+ firefighters finally succeeded in containing it. Miraculously, the core temples, archives, and residences of The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary were untouched. However, several outlying buildings and holy sites were destroyed; and the homes of many devotees living near the Sanctuary were also lost.

Celebration of Adi Da Jayanthi November 3: The Celebration of Adi Da Jayanthi, the Human Birth of the Divine Person. On Adi Da Jayanthi ("Jayanthi" is Sanskrit for "Victorious"), we celebrate the Gift of God Present no longer a question mark for humankind to ponder and doubt ("Does God exist?"), but a Gift for humankind to recognize, enjoy, and Realize. . . directly accessible through the Divine Incarnation of Adi Da.


The Season of Light-In-Everybody November 14: The Initiation of Danavira Mela. In Adidam, Danavira Mela, or "The Season of Light-In-Everybody", lasts from early November to the January 11th Celebration of Avatar Adi Da's Divine Self-"Emergence". Adi Da: "I love this season of celebration. In human terms, it is really the best season of the whole year. Rightly engaged, this season should be the most splendid, loving time of every year."
