Adi Da Samraj talks about the principle of egoity: how this principle underlies the Great Tradition; how it makes existence "samsara" (illusion), in which we imagine that we are living in the real world; and how understanding this principle is the key to the Way of Adidam.
This is an excerpt from the key talk, "Self-Understanding", given by Adi Da on April 8, 1993. More from the same talk here (text) and here (video).

Adi Da contrasts the egoic model of life and love, which is based on a "victim" strategy, with the self-transcending model, which is based on self-responsibility. He describes the purpose and nature of devotional groups in serving practice of the Way of Adidam.
