An audio talk from 1982 accompanied by images of Adi Da. This talk was later published in the book, The Dreaded Gom-Boo.
This talk considers that all religion seeks to cure us of an unreal disease, which Adi Da humorously calls the "Dreaded Gom-Boo". This disease is our constant presumption that we have somehow "fallen from Grace" and are in need of the salvatory "cure" of religious belief.
Adi Da uproots this religious conceit and illusion by Confessing (based on His Own Realization) that we are always already present and alive in and as Divine Being. The "good news" of Adi Da's Way of Adidam is that, in present Communion with the Divine (made available through Adi Da's Spiritual Transmission), we need not seek to be cured, but must only feel, observe, understand, and renounce the very activity of seeking itself, and thus be restored to our native Happiness and Freedom.

The end of the talk, "Religion of the Whole Body" set to images of the Divine God-Man, Adi Da Samraj, Who is the Radiant Life that Pervades the World in Person.
A talk from 1978 in which Adi Da criticizes cultic behaviour, particularly in relation to the Spiritual Master. He admonishes devotees to consider the childish basis of the religion they were bought up in (or influenced by), and see that their religious upbringing always suggested the impossibility of ever truly knowing the Divine Itself.

In this talk excerpt, Adi Da addresses the fact that Truth or God-Realization is not dependent on, nor does it have anything to do with, the functions and activities of the body-mind. It cannot be achieved through sex, science, or even religion.

In this podcast, which is drawn from two talks and a recitation from Adi Da's Teaching, Avatar Adi Da brings His unique clarity and offers commentary on the commercialization of religion. He describes how the consumer mentality has infiltrated the area of religion. We hear from the media and the popular psyche that you can buy religion and become "spiritual" without real change — and Adi Da points out how this presumption is false. Adi Da contasts consumer religion with true religion.

Adi Da writes: "Adidam is not a conventional 'religion'. Adidam is not a conventional way of life. Adidam is about the transcending of the ego-'I'. Adidam is about the Freedom of Divine Self-Realization. Adidam is not based on mythology or belief. Adidam is a Reality-practice. Adidam is a 'Reality consideration' in which the various modes of egoity are progressively transcended. Adidam is a universally applicable Way of life. Adidam is for those who will choose it, and whose hearts and intelligence fully respond to Me and My Offering. Adidam is a Great Revelation and it is to be freely and openly communicated to all."
This podcast contains excerpts from two talks, in which Adi Da clarifies that the Way of Adidam is based solely on the inherent heart-response to His Transcendental Spiritual State. That heart-response leads to the self-understanding and willingness to take up the real ego-transcending practice.
A commercial (from Theo Cedar Jones) for Adi Da's book, Not-Two Is Peace, which describes how the human race can save itself by adopting a new form of global cooperative culture based on "prior unity".
In this Adidam Revelation Discourse from January 21, 2005, Adi Da reveals that Liberation cannot ever be achieved through sex, science, or religion! And He makes the astounding assertion, “Realization has nothing to do with the body-mind.”
Watch this DVD for Adi Da's Instruction on True Freedom, which He says is discovered only in the utter transcending of “point of view”, by means of the Transmission of Reality Itself. "The 'self'-contraction, the 'point of view', the 'point-of-view'-machine and what it presumes to be Reality, the illusions of Reality created by 'point of view' — these are the important matters to be understood. The 'you' to which you refer as 'I', the ego-'I', is a 'point-of-view'-machine. It is subject to the illusions of the cosmic apparition, the illusions that 'point of view' itself is subject to — space-time, mass, and so forth."

Ed Reither of The Beezone interviews longtime devotee James Steinberg about Adi Da Samraj's development of His Teaching about the Great Tradition in which He clarifies and makes sense of all humankind's exploration of religion, spirituality and truth. James talks about Adi Da's description of the esoteric anatomy of the body-mind and the process that a person has to go through to realize the truth.
In the excerpts from six unique Discourses included on this 2-CD set, Adi Da reveals how scientific materialism has replaced the sacred orientation in life and indoctrinated humankind into limited belief systems, discussing common views about evolution, astronomy versus astrology, ancient religions, the expanding universe, the “language” of mathematics and shape, and more. In addition, He masterfully describes how knowledge is an effort to achieve power over nature, based on the fundamental illusion that there is such a thing as an independent (or “objective”) “point of view”. In this process, Avatar Adi Da calls His listeners to be free of all false authorities, and to consider the Way that perfectly transcends “point of view” itself.
