"In November 2010, a group of musicians traveled to the sacred hermitage island of Adi Da Samrajashram (Naitauba, Fiji) for spiritual retreat. We played daily at many of the holy sites on the island. We particularly fell into a blissful mood when playing on the veranda of our Guru's house."
"There, in the open air, with fresh breezes blowing, gentle waves washing, and birds chirping, we fell into deep devotion as we played. The music on this recording was spontaneously created on these occasions." —John Wubbenhorst
In celebration of the month of Da Naitauba (October), this album is currently on sale from the Dawn Horse Press at 40% off through October 31.
The music of Naamleela Free Jones reflects a sacred orientation unique in today's world. From the inception of her musical life, at the age of five, Naamleela has had the repeated opportunity of playing for her Spiritual Master and Father, Adi Da Samraj. In fact, Naamleela has always played the piano as a devotional offering to Adi Da, and all of the pieces on this album are ones she has played for Him. This initial compilation of Western Piano Classics was recorded as a gift to Adi Da Samraj in April of 1997 in one day. Two additional pieces were recorded in April of 1999 and have been added to this second edition of the album.
In this Adidam Revelation Discourse from January 21, 2005, Adi Da reveals that Liberation cannot ever be achieved through sex, science, or religion! And He makes the astounding assertion, “Realization has nothing to do with the body-mind.”
Watch this DVD for Adi Da's Instruction on True Freedom, which He says is discovered only in the utter transcending of “point of view”, by means of the Transmission of Reality Itself. "The 'self'-contraction, the 'point of view', the 'point-of-view'-machine and what it presumes to be Reality, the illusions of Reality created by 'point of view' — these are the important matters to be understood. The 'you' to which you refer as 'I', the ego-'I', is a 'point-of-view'-machine. It is subject to the illusions of the cosmic apparition, the illusions that 'point of view' itself is subject to — space-time, mass, and so forth."
This excerpt is from the Adidam Revelation Discourse of October 24, 2004. A devotee's question about memory and a bicycle accident sparks Avatar Adi Da's Discourse about the nature of the human mechanism. Likening the mind to "cyberspace", Avatar Adi Da describes the "codes" human beings use to interpret perceptions and give apparent meaning to the "game" of life. He also exposes as an illusion the very presumption of being a separate, perceiving self. Adi Da Samraj calls everyone to relinquish the commitment to all presumptions and Awaken to that Realization which is not a state, but a Force that Spiritually Outshines all of illusory existence.

Produced in 2005, this album is one of Naamleela's most original and creative musical works. The songs were composed over a period of five years, to the ecstatic sacred poetry of Adi Da Samraj. Bringing together her training in both Eastern and Western music, and featuring several guest artists, a unique environment of natural and modern sounds, and the talents of Grammy-nominated producer Damian Taylor, the result is an exquisite melding of words, meaning, music, and beauty.
Is God a Being, or the Being, taking care of everyone?
If there is a God, then why isn't God obviously just in charge?
Why do individuals who don't believe in God very often seem to have a relatively enjoyable life, and believers just as frequently suffer?
If God is a Parent-Force, then why doesn't the commitment to God bring into your life evidence that you are being protected and sustained?
These are some of the questions that Avatar Adi Da considers with devotees participating with Him in the gatherings from the 1980's presented on this CD. What unfolds is a lively consideration that you too can participate in, wherever or whenever you are, by listening to this CD.
Adi Da calls devotees to consider whether there is any evidence that a God exists Who one can hook up with through mere belief; and Who will then, like a Parent with Infinite Resources, start granting the believer a better life: reduced suffering, all kinds of earthly benefits, etc.
In this talk, Adi Da offers guidance on how to relate and serve children in the process of fully maturing and becoming a loving, balanced human being, capable of relating to others and to the Divine Itself.
This talk excerpt can be found on the CD, Remember About Being Happy: Instructions to and about Children. On this CD, Adi Da gives humorous and loving answers to questions from children and speaks of the freedom and the responsibility that parents and guides must grant to children for the sake of their “growth and out-growing”.

An excerpt from "Guru As Prophet", a humorous and penetrating Discourse from the very earliest years of Avatar Adi Da’s Teaching-Work. Adi Da speaks of the Guru's role as prophet in the world, which is to create "an aggravation, a criticism, an undermining of the usual life". He speaks of how the Guru in the function of prophet is always working to produce a condition in which people's illusions may be undone.
