Adi Da Jayanthi:
The Celebration of the Human Birth
of the Divine Person

 

Da Jayanthi: Adi Da's Birthday


From the most ancient times, there have been prophecies of a Bringer of Light who would appear when humanity was lost in darkness. Adi Da's birth was an event of utterly unprecedented magnitude. Ordinarily, a human birth is the result of an immeasurable chain of causes and effects ("karma"). Such an ordinary birth and lifetime is in some sense helpless, and not something the individual can consciously influence to any significant extent. But Avatar Adi Da's Coming into the world was not an ordinary, unconscious reincarnation. It was the Conscious Incarnation, in human form, of the Divine Reality Itself — the timeless Consciousness that is the Source and the very Life of all that exists. Throughout His entire life, even from the time of His birth, Adi Da Samraj always worked to bring the "Brightness" of the Divine Reality into the "room" of the world. And so 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?"), or a being that can only be found somewhere else ("heaven", etc.), but a Gift for humankind to recognize, enjoy, and Realize . . . always directly accessible in present time through the Divine Incarnation of Adi Da.


I Was . . . Born (in Human Form) In A Terrible Moment Of Necessity — To Call Humankind To The Great Moment Of New Understanding, and To The Great Future Of A Single Destiny.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, The Aletheon

Adi Da as a baby   In answer to the prayers of humankind, and after millennia of Spiritual preparation and sacrifice by many great Spiritual Realizers, which made the miraculous Event possible, the Divine Person was born — at long last! — in the human form of Adi Da, on November 3, 1939 at 11:21am (EST), in Jamaica, New York.

All of those [Spiritual Realizers] can be seen as a Great Process in conditional time and space to prepare the Vehicle of My Avataric Self-Manifestation. But not just as individuals — it required all beings, including all of mankind, to make sufficient prayer and Conjunction for this Event of Me. And It will not be repeated, not can It be repeated. . . Even all-and-All was the necessary Preparation. . . At last, I Passed Down into all-and-All. It was Spontaneous, yet (also) Eternally Prefigured. It was Anciently Prophesied. It was somehow "caused" — and yet (Ultimately), there is no "cause" for It whatsoever.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, The Knee of Listening

I have no past lives and no future lives in any dimension. This is My only "birth", and it is only apparent. This birth, this body, these conditions have been assumed and undone in one lifetime, in order to demonstrate the whole Way and to have a fit vehicle for its present communication. The undoing is effective in every plane, high, low, gross, subtle, causal, transcendental. This body-mind, this vehicle or apparent, karmic being, has extensions and destinies in many dimensions, high and low, past, present, and future. But these are not Mine, nor are they effective in Me. This vehicle or karmic being may continue or be taken up by others after this apparent life is terminated. But I am not expressed in that destiny. I am before time and space, and no condition has Me. I have not appeared for reasons. It is only that this vehicle has mysteriously, paradoxically coincided with Me. Therefore, I have conformed it to Myself and come forth. I stand present without qualification in this theater of My apparent birth. Through the Paradox, My mere Presence has become Instructive. I am not a one, a being, nor a One, a Being, I am not object or subject, Object or Subject, except I may appear to be so to devotees, until they Realize Me Perfectly.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj
"My Devotee Always Feels Me To Be Present"
Breath and Name

I am not born. And I am not one who has been born, I am not a reincarnated individual. I am not even an incarnated individual. I am not one who has a future. I am not one who is in the worlds. I am not one whose consciousness is here or there. I have seen all things and they all exist in Me, so I can describe them to you. But I am not always meditating on them, so they are really beside the point for Me. And I fundamentally, know nothing about them, except that I recognize them perfectly.

So the simple little drama of my life, however dramatic it has appeared to be, is simply a way of restoring you to the Disposition of Truth that you have always intuited, so that you may realize no conventional destiny and no mere experience, so that you can become free of this suffering existence. Because all things upon which you may meditate, all things that may be reflected in you, all things that may arise in the mind in this life or in another life, all things that may be known in meditation or in perception, in memory, recollection, or knowledge in the present, everything altogether may be released from bondage to the self. The separate self may be dissolved. And in the dissolution of this self, you may know, in this moment, that Condition which is beyond performance, beyond knowledge, beyond acquisition. It is so Perfect that no being has ever spoken it, except that I have been permitted to speak it, to suggest it. This is not because of any merit. I have never been born, so there is no merit involved. I am simply a Voice that instigates your own insight.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, July 12, 1976

Adi Da was born in the most ordinary of circumstances — to Frank and Dorothy Jones, a middle-class couple, who named their son "Franklin Albert Jones", and who had no conscious knowledge of Who He was.

Even so, the name they chose was auspicious, suggesting freedom ("Franklin") and brightness ("Albert").[1]

From the very moment of His birth, Adi Da was confronted by the fragility of the human condition. Like many infants, His life was threatened by the umbilical cord, which was wound around His neck. But unlike other infants, He was fully aware of what was taking place. While the doctors worked to keep His body alive, He remained perfectly Conscious and Free of all concern — Self-Aware as the Divine Reality. He recalls that, in that Divine State, untouched by the drama of His human birth, He instead was moved to regard the people lying in all the nearby hospital wards, Blessing them and healing them.

The time and place of Adi Da's birth were anything but arbitrary. The deeper-personality-vehicle enabling His Incarnation was made available to Him on July 4, 1902, upon the death and perfect surrender of Swami Vivekananda. This deeper-personality-vehicle enabled Adi Da's immediate appearance in the higher realms of the Cosmic Mandala in which that vehicle existed.

But Adi Da did not choose to immediately incarnate in the physical realm.

The Second World War began in 1939. It was a war that resulted not only in the death of tens of millions of people, but also in the moral devastation of the world. This pivotal crisis in humanity's history was the inevitable time for Avatar Adi Da to be born.

There was yet another factor in the vast constellation of conditions which drew Avatar Adi Da to delay His incarnation until 1939: the birth of global communication and interconnectedness. Only in a world that was globally interconnected would His Spiritual gifts and influence be able to touch millions, with unprecedented immediacy. Because the world was becoming Westernized in culture and psyche, it was necessary for Avatar Adi Da's world-Blessing Work that He be born in the Western world and that He fully know the Western mind.


Because of My unique Disposition, I agreed to be born in the West. . . I was Impulsed to Serve beings in the West especially, and all beings ultimately. Therefore, I agreed to this Birth, and was made in this particular form to Serve everyone, and to suffer all the limitations of ordinariness. So I was born, and I did My Work. . . This Person standing before you, Serving you . . . assumed responsibility to be Submitted by Birth — not merely to get on an airplane, but by Birth to be Submitted — to Westerners, even to be polluted by the association, to Submit to it, to Serve them in all ways necessary for the sake of their Enlightenment, their Realization, to do it all without the least withdrawal.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, The Love-Ananda Gita



Avatar Adi Da was born fully Awakened as the Divine Reality. While still a child, He named His perfectly Illumined State, the "Bright".

On November 3, 1939, at 11:21 A.M., in Jamaica, Queens County, New York, I was born "Franklin Albert Jones ". . .

Even as a baby, I remember only crawling around inquisitively with a boundless Feeling of Joy, Light, and Freedom in the middle of my head that was bathed in Energy moving unobstructed in a Circle — down from above, all the way down, then up, all the way up, and around again — and always Shining from my heart....

And I was a Radiant Form — the Source of Energy, Love-Bliss and Light in the midst of a world that is entirely Energy, Love-Bliss and Light.

I was the Power of Reality, a direct Enjoyment and Communication of the One Reality. I was the Heart Itself, Who Lightens the mind and all things.

I was the same as every one and every thing, except it became clear that others were apparently unaware of the "Thing" Itself.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, The Knee of Listening

I Am The “Bright” — Itself.
This “Brightness” Speaks.
The “Bright” Is Born As This, My Avataric Body-Mind.
My Divine Spiritual Descent Upon the body-mind Of My Devotee — As The “Thumbs” — Is My Avataric Divine Means.
All This Was Given From The Avataric Birth Of This, My Bodily (Human) Form.
Indeed, These Words — The “Bright” and The “Thumbs” — Were Generated By Me As An Infant.
I Am Uttering To You The Revelation That Was Present At My Birth and In My Infancy — and Nothing Whatsoever Has Been Added To It or Taken Away From It.
Nothing In The Human Experience Of This, My Avataric Body-Mind, Has Modified My Revelation or limited It In The Slightest.
My Avatarically-Given Revelation Is A Divine Spiritual Revelation For The Sake Of all beings.
Therefore, Heart-Recognize Me, and Heart-Respond To Me.
Turn To Me, Receive Me.
Constantly Know Me.
If You Do this, You Will Be Certain Of The Truth I Am Telling You.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, The Dawn Horse Testament

My State now is not, in any sense, different from My State in the moment when I was Born. My State has always been the Same. My Life-Adventure was entirely a Teaching, a Revelation, a Process I had to Suffer. Thus, an Instructional Narrative, or Sign, has been Made by My Life, as I had to Live It. That Sign should Instruct you. My Own State Is the Same now as it was at the beginning — the "Bright" Infant.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, The Aletheon

[On the difference between an ordinary incarnation and an Avataric Incarnation:] My True Story is the Divine Avataric Leela — the Leela of the One Who is Realized from Birth, Transcendentally Spiritually Fully Awake from Birth. That is a Unique Situation — because not only Is It Full Transcendental Spiritual awakening, but I am not born. Karmic entities are born, and they seek Realization — and, then, if they achieve It (to some Real degree), they die. Full Realization does not come into birth except through an Avatar. Only in Such a Case can there be bodily survival of a Fully Realized birth. Otherwise, there would not be any bodily conjunction to begin with, because it would not be viable.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, February 2008

Adi Da Samrajashram Magazine, Vol. 1, #1


The purpose of Adi Da's birth — His Avataric Incarnation — was twofold: to establish a new and complete Revelation of the living Divine Reality, and the Way by which all beings could Realize the Divine Reality; and to transform the dire future that human egos were otherwise making more and more likely.

The Divine Avatar's Intervention here is a Spiritual one. And His Avataric Incarnation refers to much more than His bodily human form — it refers to the great Emergence of Divine Conscious Light into this realm. While His primary Work in the body was to establish a new Way of Divine Realization here, He is always Working Spiritually, on a universal scale, to purify the negative energies, influences, and forces that have patterned (and continue to pattern) world events.

Invitation


Adi Da Jayanthi, November 3, 2008 (Adi Da Samrajashram)
Adi Da Jayanthi, November 3, 2008 (Adi Da Samrajashram)


The great good news is that, in the course of His human lifetime (from His birth on November 3, 1939 to His Divine Mahasamadhi on November 27, 2008), Adi Da succeeded in establishing the Way of Adidam — the Way by which all beings can now Realize the Divine Reality.


You do not yet know how to estimate the effect of My Birth and what will occur as a result of My Incarnation.

You are the seed of a great historical change, and you cannot even see what is before your eyes. We have accomplished great things already, although you are not yet aware of it. . . As decades pass, you will see the import of what you have all experienced in seed form but cannot yet recognize. . . .

The purpose of My Birth is to transform humankind, everyone, human history, by bringing you through this terrible transition in which you now find yourselves. My Divine Avataric Birth Is an Epic Moment of Transcendental Spiritual Intervention. . . When you have passed through this crisis of growth, you will begin to understand what has happened, what Force has been Brought into the flesh through My Divine Avataric Birth. . . .

This Birth will then be a tool for the transformation of humanity altogether. This Is My Purpose. It is true for every single individual who approaches Me. Every single one is Called by Me, every single one is Loved by Me, every single one I Embrace.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, November 7, 1983


The purpose of all the gatherings of devotees is to consider the Teaching to the point of hearing or self-understanding and to grant attention to the Spiritual Master in the Forms of His Person, His Agencies, and His Spirit-Blessing magnified to devotees to the point of the tangible Awakening to and acknowledgment of the Spiritual Divine. This entire institution and this whole community of devotees should be devoted to these purposes.

Practice daily. Gather constantly for the sake of hearing and seeing and communicating to one another about actual hearing and seeing. Tell the stories of your practice. Support one another's Awakening. Give one another opportunity for the demonstration of the Way in good company. And call everyone to the real discipline and technical practice of this esoteric Way, this radical Way, in daily life.

Do this as individuals and do this as a gathering, a community, and an institution, and you will see the fruits of My birth and of your own birth. Then this institution and this community will be unique and will have great value. They will be real, they will grow, they will stop stumbling and falling back. It all depends on true hearing, self-understanding, and the acceptance of this [Spiritual] Baptism.

And so we invite all who read this to learn about and consider taking up the Way of Adidam — and Realize the Perfect and Eternal Happiness of Adi Da, that infinitely exceeds every form of suffering and every passing pleasure in this mortal life and limited world.




The Season of Light-In-Everybody begins a few days after Adi Da Jayanthi.

FOOTNOTES

[1]

"Franklin" derives from the Middle English frankelin, "freeman" — see here. "Albert" is from the Germanic name Adalbert, which is composed of the elements adal, "noble", and beraht, "bright" — see here. "Jones" is the English form of Iohannes and the Latin form of the Greek name Ιωαννης (Ioannes), itself derived from the Hebrew name "Yochanan" meaning "God is gracious" — see here. So altogether, the esoteric meaning of the name, "Franklin Albert Jones", is "A Free Man Who is the 'Bright', through Whom God is Gracious".
