Adi Da's senior editorial assistant, Jonathan Condit, tells the story of the moment when Adi Da "captured his heart", while he was an ordained Buddhist monk. At the time, Jonathan had an immediate recognition of Adi Da as "Maitreya Buddha". He describes how his recognition deepened over time: "All the premonitions of a 'great being to come' [Maitreya] are unbelievably pale in comparison to the actuality of Avatar Adi Da."
[Note: Jonathan refers to 23 key books written by Adi Da. Since the time of this recording, Adi Da expanded His Vision for His primary literature to 23 "courses", each of which could be associated with many particular Texts.]
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.
