||This excerpt is from one the Adidam Revelation Discourse of November 6, 2004. Adi Da proposes that all human lifetimes are a “quest for the historical self”. He describes how this search is based on the activity of “self”-contraction — the erroneous presumption of an actual, defined, knowable “self”. His Discourse exposes that neither experience nor memory nor the sensations of the physical body actually define a separate entity. The “I” is a fiction, a lie—and Reality Itself is Self-Evident only when the activity of the “self”-contraction is transcended.
This excerpt is part of the longer DVD, The Quest for the Historical Self. A CD version is also available.

Avataric Discourses. From mid-2004 to early 2006, Avatar Adi Da offered a unique series of Discourses broadcasted live over the Internet to His devotees worldwide. During these occasions, Avatar Adi Da answered questions from those present in the room with Him, but also from devotees all over the world via speakerphone. As He had always done, even from the beginning of His Teaching Work, Avatar Adi Da addressed each devotee personally, but was also Instructing all beings, in all times and places. Many of these Discourses are available as DVDs and CDs from The Dawn Horse Press.

Note: We are constantly adding to our Audio/Video Library. All the YouTube videos you might be moved to share can be found in our Library. We intentionally created this Library as a far nicer and fuller place than YouTube (or Vimeo or any other video site) for learning about Adi Da and Adidam. Unlike YouTube, our site focuses exclusively on Adi Da and Adidam, and provides a comprehensive introduction. Unlike most YouTube videos (which tend to not to link to any related materials or sites), our videos link to many related materials on the Adi Da Up Close site. Someone who enjoys the particular video page you send them to here can then easily watch many more videos related to Adi Da and Adidam. Our Library contains — all in one place — videos that are otherwise scattered across YouTube and many other sites and over 70 sources, many difficult to find. For all these reasons, we recommend that you share a link to a video page on the Adi Da Up Close site, rather than send someone a link to the same video on YouTube, Vimeo, or some other video site. It may take you a moment to find the video you want to share on our site, but it won't take long, using our Library's search engine (the form above). Thank you!
