||Adi Da gave this talk on May 24, 1983, in Fiji. In it he describes how all processes (including diet) associated with transformation of the body-mind (making it an appropriate yogic vehicle compatible with the Transcendental Spiritual Way of Adidam) necessarily first go through purification and rebalancing phases (for as long as they take) — associated with Fire — before they enter the regeneration phase — associated with Light. Knowing this helps one persist in the fire of the purification and rebalancing phases to the point where one comes out the other side.
The life of devotion to Me Is both a Communion with Light and a Purification by Fire. There may be many years of This Fire-Light in My Divine Avataric Company, and you should welcome all of them.That commitment to Fire and Light must be your exercise of life — in every moment, and under all circumstances.

searchless diet. One of the many unique characteristics of the diet recommended by Adi Da is that is it searchless. Most people use food as a means to fulfill their general search for pleasure in and through the body. In the context of a spiritual practice in which one is already happy (by actually communing with the Divine throughout the day), one can adopt a very different relationship to diet: where the choice and quantity of food is selected simply for the purpose of lawful management of the body (assimilating necessary nutrients, maintaining or restoring health, etc.), without attempting to use food to solve some other problem (for example, hoping that stuffing oneself with "junk food" will make that knot in the stomach area go away or at least, allow one to be temporarily immunized to the pain), and without attempting to use food to fulfill any kind of physical, spiritual, or religious ideal (such as: "raw" = "pure"; or meat eater = "bad", vegetarian = "good"; etc.).
Someone who rightly practices diet and fasting in the manner I recommend naturally enjoys physical well-being. Someone who exploits diet for pleasure has fun and then suffers. You may choose one or the other approach to life. You can have fun and suffer, or you can enjoy a continuous sense of well-being and enjoy freedom from the negative exaggerations of physical existence.
