There Is No Separate Self (video)


There Is No Separate Self   In this discourse excerpt, Adi Da addresses the fact that the assumption of a separate self or being, is not really the case. It is, in fact, an illusion a "lie" that rules our entire life. But based on this assumption, we assume all kinds of limitations, and struggle to get out of our suffering through the very means (our assumption that we are separate) which binds us in the first place. All that does is reinforce the illusion.

At 7:07, there is Darshan of Adi Da, continuing to 9:09.

Music: John Mackay and Matt Nicholson

The full talk is available on the DVD, The Quest for the Historical Self.

This talk is also available on a CD.

Avataric Discourses. From mid-2004 to early 2006, Avatar Adi Da offered a unique series of Discourses, broadcast 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.

Darshan (or Sacred Sighting of the Guru) is a particularly potent occasion in which devotees focus on the Divine Revelation that Adi Da is Spiritually Transmitting. (A video recording like this one, of a Darshan occasion, also Spiritually Transmits.) The occasion is usually silent, but is occasionally accompanied by devotees chanting. In some occasions, you may see Adi Da scanning above the heads of the devotees present, working to draw His Divine Light down into each devotee. You may also hear devotees blowing the sacred conch, at the beginning and end of a Darshan occasion, to let everyone know of the Sighting of the Guru. Often, near the end of an occasion, Adi Da will bless a bowl of prasad (often dates, or something similar that is sweet and edible), which is then distributed to everyone present. At the end of a Darshan occasion, you may also see devotees prostrating on the ground in gratitude for the Revelation their Guru just granted them. Adi Da describes Darshan as "the fundamental principle" of Spiritual Realization in this video talk excerpt. Over time, through constant meditation on the Revelation being transmitted by the Realizer, The Realizer's Realization is duplicated in the devotee.
