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.
This video opens with Adi Da landing by seaplane on Adi Da Samrajashram (the Fijian island of Naitauba) for the first time, on October 27, 1983. Adi Da Samrajashram would become His primary Hermitage and the primary seat of His Blessing Work.
Adi Da then speaks about the significance of His unique incarnation as the Divine Avatar — "The Bright" — and its relationship to the context of His birth circumstance and the deeper personality vehicles associated with His Incarnation.
The video goes on to document Adi Da's childhood and young adulthood.
Peter van Gelder (sitar), John Wubbenhorst (bansuri), and Samrat Kakkeri (tabla) will perform a Sacred Offering of classical Indian ragas on 2pm on June 3, 2012, in Land Bridge Pavilion at The Mountain Of Attention.
This is a fundraising event to support sending musicians to Naitauba for Da Purnima.

In December 1983, two months after Adi Da's arrival at Adi Da Samrajashram (on the island of Naitauba in Fiji), an accident occurred that would have been fatal without Avatar Adi Da's Intervention. The story of that incident is told by two people: Frans Bakker, one of the doctors involved; and Tom Closser, the devotee to whom the accident occurred, who describes his near-death experience, and a profound lesson about how "guilt" can become a self-destructive impediment to growth.

This recording of Above the Clouds was made in November 2010, during a three day, 24-hour-a-day vigil of meditation and puja on the veranda of Aham Da Asmi Sthan, Adi Da's home on the island of Naitauba. Devotee John Wubbenhorst speaks of the sacred occasion of being dropped out into the space of being 'not really there' while the Guru plays the musical instrument (and the instrument that is one's body-mind).
"Above the clouds, There Is Always The Sun — Forever Free Of Earthly Weather. By Tendency, You Are Always Looking At the local weather, and Not At The Sun Itself. That Is What egoity Is About — Always Suffering The Changes Of The local Patterning That Is the body-mind In its egoic Bondage. Instead, You Must (In every moment) Turn To Me . . . "
