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."
While travelling in New Zealand in 1988, Adi Da speaks about going beyond a mediocre life. Rather than merely going "with the flow" (allowing the body-mind to dictate one's existence), one can live an intentional life of true Spiritual practice, in which the body-mind and its mediocre destiny are transcended in the Divine.
While travelling in New Zealand in 1988, Adi Da answers a question about the dilemma of bicultualism and difference-making in conventional society. He elaborates on how society does not have a basis of cooperative community and also speaks of the necessity to transcend all reactiveness in relation to daily relations and circumstances.
