Facing East Productions and Adidam Bay Area Present a Sacred Offering - A Celebration of Music & Art to benefit Naitauba, Fiji for Hurricane Relief. July 17, 2010 at St. John's Presbyterian Church in Berkeley, CA @ 7:15pm.
For three days in mid-March, 2010, Adi Da Samrajashram (the sacred island of Naitauba) and many neighboring islands in Fiji were battered by Cyclone Tomas, a category 4 storm. After 27 hours we emerged from shelter to a scene of staggering destruction. We urgently need your help!
Naitauba Island is the Hermitage Sanctuary of His Divine Presence Adi Da Samraj, spiritually empowered by Him, as the primary place from where His Divine Blessing flows perpetually to the world. For 25 years, Adi Da worked to establish the island of Naitauba as a unique esoteric and ecological treasure. Adi Da Samrajashram is devoted to the principles of green living, sustainable energy, cooperation, tolerance, and peace, and Adi Da's devotees and the local Fijian and Indian staff live together harmoniously, serving and protecting the sacred environment of the island. It is a uniquely pure and untouched sanctuary in the world today.
This is the selection, "Descending Grace", from the CD, "True Water" recorded by John Wubbenhorst (flutes,vocals and keyboards) and Ken Anoff (percussion). This recording, inspired by the wisdom of Adi Da, is a unique collection from these world travelers, available at www.facingeast.com.
