Adi Da Samraj describes how the Guru-devotee relationship is based on the Realization of the Realizer. Contemplation of His Bodily Sign is the means by which all His Gifts are received and by which the devotee duplicates the Realization of the Realizer.
In this excerpt from the talk, The Great Secret, Avatar Adi Da speaks about how growth in Spiritual terms depends on fulfilling the impulse of the heart: to live the sacred life by always living in contemplation of the "Sat-Guru", or Spiritual Master.
Adi Da: "So practice is not what you do alone when you are home. Practice is what you do with Me. Wherever you may be, you must find the Space of My Company. This is the Secret...you find It by "locating" that Attractiveness Itself, being attracted by It, being moved by It.
So this is a concentrated life, a life of contemplation, a life of being attracted, a life of gravitating toward the sacred domain... The movement of the heart is always to be right here, to be right where the Sat-Guru is. So the devotee finds every opportunity to do just that."
A remarkable recording of Naamleela Free Jones chanting Avatar Adi Da’s Ruchira Avatara Gita in a manner that serves contemplation and devotion. The entire text is chanted in the traditional mantric “swadhyaya” manner. This most beautiful devotional Gita is sometimes broadcast in Adidam temples and centers around the world. Recorded in Temple Adi Da at The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary in California on March 28 & 30, 2001.
Naamleela Free Jones collaborates with dhrupad singer Felix Woldenberg in this beautiful mantric album. Together they chant 80 variants of the Da Naama Mantra with uniquely skilled intonation, unfolding from traditional alap through rhythms and modern harmonies. This is a special form of contemplation, especially for those who know of Adi Da Samraj.

The true enactment of The Mummery Book by Adi Da Samraj takes place in an extraordinary theater. That extraordinary theater is the theater of our own mind-not just the thinking mind, but mind in its coincidence with all of reality, internal and external.
