||Beezone editor and teacher Ed Reither interviews devotee and teacher Frank Marrero about the first stage of life (conception to 7 years of age), as taught by Adi Da Samraj.
They discuss the first stage of life and the maladapted aspect or tendency (beyond the first 7 years of life) towards unconsciousness in forms of behavior such as sleepiness, laziness and numbness. All first stage behaviors are bodily based and it is a stage of the development of bodily autonomy.
When well adapted to the first stage of life, one can rest with ease in the body in fullness. There is discussion about Adi Da Samraj's teaching that the first stage of life has reached a stage of maturity when the child breaks the bond with the mother (two as one) so they may enjoy relationship without dependency.
Adi Da Samraj teaches all His devotees to observe and understand their maladapted patterns in the first three stages of life while maintaining a living relationship with Him in each moment.
More information on the disciplines as recommended by Adi Da Samraj can be found here.

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!
