On the evening of October 12, 2004, Avatar Adi Da not only answered His devotees’ questions (ranging from the capacity of discrimination to living a Divinely Purposed life), He also addressed the chronic self-reference "I" in the patterns of speech. He pointed out that there is no actual experience of such a one, though language and thought are built upon the illusion of a separate "self". Adi Da contrasted this ego-based condition to the Wordless and Thoughtless State of the Divine.
This 12-minute excerpt is from the DVD, The Wordless Condition Prior to "I", which presents Adi Da's entire Avataric Discourse of October 12, 2004 (approximately 3 hours and 36 minutes altogether).

Beezone editor and teacher Ed Reither interviews devotee and teacher Frank Marrero about the second stage of life (age 7 to 14), as taught by Adi Da Samraj.
The second stage is life is an expansion from the more physical aspects of development to the feeling/emotional/socialization aspects of life and the discussion moves around teaching children and adults to understand their development through this stage of life and how to mature with it.
In this part, they focus on the transcending of any limitation in the expression of love and service.

On January 6, 2006 at The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary in California, Adi Da Samraj recited His own renderings of the Advaitic texts Maneesha Panchakam ("Five Verses on Wisdom"), Shankara's Dasasloki ("Ten Declarations"), and the Devikalottara.
It is a delight to hear Adi Da bring the essence of these ancient texts to life, and feel how He completely and utterly combined Himself with the tradition of the Advaitic Sages. Not only does Adi Da clarify the hidden treasures and ancient truths in these texts, He also explains why the meaning of a sacred text can be communicated only by someone who has Realized the truth of it.
This is an excerpt from Track 4 of Disk 3 ("Reality (Itself) Is All The God There Is").
The collection of Avatar Adi Da’s renderings and related discourses became the seed of His book, The Gnosticon, in which He thoroughly examines the Transcendental Teachings of the ancient Sages in relation to His Transcendental Spiritual Way of Adidam.

The Greatest Secret of the final Avatar is revealed in heart communion. As He puts it: "I am you, as you really are". No mind, no separation, all is freely given and washed in that communion. This is not a belief but something for you to freely discover through your own heart-feeling.
A Darshan of Adi Da in a Los Angeles hotel, shortly after the Ruchira Dham Event in April, 2000.
The soundtrack is Adi Da Samraj giving an extraordinary recitation of His rendering of the Narayana Sooktam, a traditional invocation from the Mahanarayana Upanishad. (Adi Da used this as the invocation for the first edition of The Method Of The Siddhas.)

Darshan given by Adi Da Samraj on December 24, 1995, in Land Bridge Pavilion at The Mountain Of Attention.
Devotee Andre Decio was present: "It took nine years of devotional practice before I saw my beloved Spiritual and Heart Master Avatara Adi Da Samraj. I went in November 1995, and then again in December. It was a culmination and affirmation of my entire and truest motivation in life. . . That has never changed, but only more and more intensified. I really want people to know that true heart surrender to Adi Da is the greatest and happiest possible committment in life. All else pales in comparison."

In this discourse Adi Da calls us to understand the doctrines and spiritual attainments of humankind not as separate traditions or paths but as a whole: a single "Great Tradition". He also urges humankind to transcend merely belief-based religious myths, dogma, and "religious provincialism" which only support egoic separation and conflict.
On July 22 and 23, 2012, the Florence Dance Company presented a multimedia spectacle entitled Not-Two Is Peace. The performance at the Bargello Museum in Florence, Italy brought together image-art by Adi Da Samraj, original ballet by the Florence Dance Company, and live music — a dynamic exploration of the principles of world peace and prior unity as described in Adi Da's book, Not-Two Is Peace.
Part Two of the performance featured music for solo piano, composed and performed by Naamleela Free Jones, and presented here in this commemorative recording. The CD also features photographs from the performance as well as the city of Florence.
