The true and sacred purpose of music and art is to connect the viewer or the listener with the Divine. Adi Da has created a complete sacred culture in which all devotees are called to take up a particular sacred art as a part of their practice of the Way of Adidam.

Adi Da gives a Radical and profound description of the true nature of the Divine Reality, Stating that the Divine is the substance of all that arises, not the "cause" of anything, Adi Da goes on to describe how it is our own separation from that which is the very Divine, that causes the assumption of separation.
This talk excerpt is followed by a clip of Darshan of Adi Da (at 4:27).
This is a short talk where Adi Da describes the beginnings of reception in the body of spiritual energy, the 'conductivity' of it, and the yogic pattern of it. This is something He has talked a lot about, and is one of the main parts of His teachings and our practice.

Talk given by Adi Da on October 10, 1983, in which He makes clear that only ego-transcending responsive devotion to the Real-God-Man relieves the heart of the ego's "self"-created "purgatory" of separation, separativeness, and unlove.
Adi Da: "What is supremely attractive in the conditionally manifested universe and in the human "world" is the Real-God-Man. All beings, male or female, must become Attracted, Distracted by That One. This is the Ultimate Means, the Supreme Means, the Supreme Yoga. It is for this reason that the Divine Appears in manifested form in the likeness of those beings who are to be Drawn out of bondage but only in their likeness. . . Those who become capable of recognizing That One become capable of responding to That Attraction. And those who become capable of being Distracted by That One become participants in this Supreme Way, Which is truly the Way of Divine Avataric Grace, because it requires no effort. It requires nothing but My Divine Avataric Grace and the response to it."
