Crazy Wisdom and a Pregnant Woman

Connie Mantas, R.N.


Recently, we came across a "statement" on several "anti-Adi Da" websites about Adi Da Samraj having "hit a pregnant woman" in the belly. We asked around if anyone knew about this, and sure enough the woman herself spoke up. The woman, Connie Mantas, became a devotee during the Garbage and the Goddess" period. She was a registered nurse at the time, and still practices nursing today. She has assisted in the birth of many devotees' children over the years. Here is her story of what actually happened.

Connie MantasConnie Mantas: Around September or October of 1974, I was in the last trimester of my pregnancy with my son, Ben. Spontaneously one evening, as we stood near the Master's Chair chanting softly to Him, Beloved Adi Da reached out and placed His hand very forcefully on my swollen belly. I fell back in a swoon of His Spiritual Force onto the devotees who were standing behind me, and we all just stood in that moment together. I closed my eyes and continued to feel His Spiritual Transmission very strongly in my body. Then it was over just as quickly as it began.

Later, at the end of the evening, I still could feel the touch of His hand on my stomach, and I had a sense of His strong Blessing, as if by placing His hand there He were calling His devotee into being. Several months later, I had a wonderful baby boy, fully healthy and strong.

"I was very fortunate to spend significant time in Beloved Adi Da's Company while growing up in the community of His devotees."

Years later as a young adult, Ben became a technical expert in the field of photography and a talented photographer as well. He has managed the technical photographic group that served Beloved Adi Da Samraj directly in the technical activities associated with creating His Image Art.
