Adi Da Samraj recites some of the core practices of the Transcendental Spiritual Way of Adidam from "The Teaching Manual of Perfect Summaries". This recitation took place at Adi Da Samrajashram on the Fijian island of Naitauba, as part of Adi Da's recitation of the complete Text of The Happenine Book, in a series of occasions starting on April 22, 2006 and ending on May 10, 2006.
On July 22 and 23, 2012, the Florence Dance Company presented a multimedia spectacle entitled Not-Two Is Peace. The performance at the Bargello Museum in Florence, Italy brought together image-art by Adi Da Samraj, original ballet by the Florence Dance Company, and live music — a dynamic exploration of the principles of world peace and prior unity as described in Adi Da's book, Not-Two Is Peace.
Part Two of the performance featured music for solo piano, composed and performed by Naamleela Free Jones, and presented here in this commemorative recording. The CD also features photographs from the performance as well as the city of Florence.
"When All Is Gone To Love" is Track 6 of the CD, Danavira: Giver of Light. This is an album of joyous holiday music for Danavira Mela, the season of Light-in-Everybody — or any time of year you’re moved to dive into an uplifting stream of devotional rhythm!

What makes Avatar Adi Da’s seventh stage Revelation utterly unique? To find out, listen to this CD set and learn about Adi Da’s singular seventh stage Way as He describes It directly and in the context of other genuine esoteric traditions. These Discourse excerpts are an incredible resource for understanding Adi Da’s seventh stage Way with the guidance of His “map” of the six stages of life, which correlates to the structures of the human being.
Disc 1 is a collection of Discourse excerpts in which Adi Da clarifies His seventh stage Way by distinguishing it from other esoteric traditions.
Disc 2 is a single Discourse in which Adi Da describes the signs and requirements of His seventh stage Way.
In late 2002 and early 2003, Adi Da Samraj created the photographic suite, Quandra Loka. The images are generally multiple exposures on a single black-and-white frame of film. Adi Da then created configurations (diptychs, triptychs, and polyptychs) from the single frame images.
Music is "Facing Beloved", from the CD, Facing Beloved, with John Wubbenhorst (bansuri), Subash Chandran (ghatam) and Ganesh Kumar (kanjira). This piece is based on a melody from J.S. Bach (siciliano) with elements of Raga Kirwani.
Adi Da explains the process of purification and sadhana, and what He expects of His devotees. He describes how the disciplines expose (by offending) one's egoity and childishness, and are purposed "to test you to the point of consciousness and responsibility."
Audio excerpt from Adi Da's talk, "Sex, Laughter, and Real-God-Realization" (now available on CD).
Sexuality, humor, and Awakening to the Divine Condition are three forms of ecstasy, or unbounded feeling, that disrupt the conventional sense of “order” in society. Pleasure undoes the body. Humor undoes the mind. And Realization undoes the sense of “self”. The Fullness of Real-God-Realization Comprehends and Transcends the limitations of social norms, spiritual presumptions, and self-identification, granting the capability of Real Happiness and True Freedom.

An excerpt from "Guru As Prophet", a humorous and penetrating Discourse from the very earliest years of Avatar Adi Da’s Teaching-Work. Adi Da speaks of the Guru's role as prophet in the world, which is to create "an aggravation, a criticism, an undermining of the usual life". He speaks of how the Guru in the function of prophet is always working to produce a condition in which people's illusions may be undone.

An excerpt from "Money, Food, and Sex", a humorous and penetrating Discourse from the very earliest years of Avatar Adi Da’s Teaching-Work. Adi Da criticizes the typical conception of Spirituality as having nothing to do with the realities of day-to-day life and says that taking responsibility for money, food, and sex creates the foundation practice of genuine spiritual practice.

An excerpt from "Walking the Dog", a humorous and penetrating Discourse from the very earliest years of Avatar Adi Da’s Teaching-Work.
