On February 24, 2013, Dutch devotee Tom Jacobs (currently a resident of Adi Da Samrajashram) was featured on the popular Dutch TV program, De ReŁnie ("The Reunion"), which is seen by two million viewers.
Each episode of De ReŁnie focuses on the lives of a few members of a particular school class from decades ago. This week featured members from Tom's class - including Tom.
The full interview explores Tom's life as a devotee of Adi Da Samraj, and then explores a tragedy in Tom's early life (the trauma of which was completely relieved by Adi Da, as Tom describes). The interview is in Dutch, but English subtitles have been added. The interviewer (and show host) is Rob Kamphues. For a fuller account of how Tom found Adi Da (written by Tom), click here.
A devotee asks Adi Da a question about the various forms of Realization in the Zen tradition. Adi Da replies by giving an elaborate description of the understandings within the Zen and other sixth stage traditions, relative to His schema of the seven stages of life.

In this discourse, Adi Da Samraj suggests that the Way He offers is not based on this assumption of separate self, but rather identification with that that is transcendent from the body-mind, the Divine Self-Condition.
The devotee asking the question of Adi Da was a former student of Zen Buddhism, so in this discourse Adi Da refers to some metaphors that are part of the Zen Buddhism Tradition.
