Brian Deschamp, Former Senior Adviser, United Nations High Commission for Refugees, talks about hosting Beloved Adi Da's visit to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1996, and how Adi Da's Blessing (and being Adi Da's "instrument" for conducting that Blessing in the right time and place) helped serve his work with the United Nations. He also discusses the uniqueness of Adi Da's Teaching and Revelation in the history of the world's great spiritual traditions.

Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Founder of the Club of Budapest World-Shift Network, talks about the "Deeper Level" that Adi Da is "plugged into" and from which the wisdom in Adi Da's book Not-Two Is Peace comes, and with which all others can resonate and connect, enabling world transformation. He also talks about the timeliness of Adi Da's call for a Global Cooperative Forum.
Rolf C. Carriere, former official with UNESCO and currently Senior Advisor to the Non-Violent Peace Force, describes his experience reading Adi Da's books communicating social wisdom, including The Transcendence of Ego and Egoic Society and Not-Two Is Peace. He also describes his conversation with Beloved Adi Da in Cape Cod, Massachusetts (in May, 1996), and his experience of serving as Adi Da's spiritual instrument in the right times and places so as to affect human history in a positive manner.
Excerpt from the Avataric Discourse of August 22, 2004.
Adi Da describes how humankind is a single family, a single species in "diaspora" — dispersed across the earth as the result of migrations from a single point of origin (in Africa) thousands of years ago. Making much of superficial differences due to race, nation, religion, language, tribe, political system, etc. obscures this more fundamental, deeper reality of the unity of humankind. For the sake of everyone's survival, humankind must begin to live on the basis of its unity, and establish a global cooperative order that includes and serves everyone.
This brief video clip presents some highlights from Part 1 of the three-part ballet, Not-Two Is Peace, from the March 15, 2013 performance in Florence, Italy. The complete ballet is 1 hour and 20 minutes in length. It was choreographed by Keith Ferrone. The art of Adi Da Samraj is displayed in monumental projections of beautiful geometries, color, and light, at times animated along with the dance. The searing, original music score by Andrea Portera is lifted to new heights with the addition of a female vocal ensemble, Trio Canora.
In this video clip, Benedetta, Egle, Angelo, and Ylenia of the Florence Dance Company grace the stage of Italy's palatial theater setting, Teatro della Pergola. Part 1 of the ballet is performed by 1 male dancer and 3 female dancers — at times reminiscent of Balanchine's 1928 Apollo.
The Florence Dance Company prepares and performs at the Pergola Theatre, Florence, in the March 2013 performances of Not-Two Is Peace. Accompanied by interviews with some of the dancers and members of the public responding to the performance.
A few scenes from the preparation at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence on March 14, 2013. Some views of the famous old theatre itself. The use of back projection for the video produces very crisp images of Adi Da's art, without the projection being interrrupted by the dancers (who would stand between the projector and the lower part of the screen in a traditional forward projection system).
