Soundtrack: the hymn, "Lord of the Dance". Performers: Colin Decio (voice and instruments). Colin is the winner of the John Ireland Chamber Music Prize. Ingrid Prosser (voice - mezzo soprano). Ingrid is from New Zealand. Words by Sydney Carter (who wrote them in 1967, inspired partly by Jesus of Nazareth, but also partly by a statue of Shiva as Nataraja). Set to the tune of the American Shaker song, "Simple Gifts".
From the performers: "The Divine World Teacher Adi Da Samraj was born on November 3, 1939. This is our gift to the Divine Person on the Anniversary of His birth."
At Adi Da Samrajashram, Adi Da describes how the advances in technology (in photography, video recording, etc.) have made His life and work uniquely available to future generations, in a way that simply was not possible during the time of Jesus and other great Spiritual Masters.
A key responsibility of the Adidam Archives is to do the work of preserving all of the various forms of recordings and documentation that Adi Da is describing. Of particular importance at the current time is the conversion of all temporary (perishable) forms (like audiocassettes; handwritten sheets of paper — Adi Da wrote all His books in this manner; etc.) into more permanent (digital) forms of recording and record. You can help!
On May 28, 2006, with breathtaking clarity and insight, Avatar Adi Da offered a rendering of the moral and Spiritual Teachings of Jesus of Galilee, revealing the true depth of Jesus’s authenticity as a great Realizer, in continuity with the ancient esoteric tradition of Spiritual Transmission-Masters. This communication is available on the double CD from the Dawn Horse Press, The Spiritual Gospel of Saint Jesus of Galilee.
This audio excerpt is Adi Da's rendering of Jesus' Teaching from Matthew 5:1 – 5:10: "The Sermon on the Mount".
