Love Comes To Here in Time, And Numbers All the Things of Beauty in the House. A Single Room Is Shown To Be –A Unity, Within and Every Where. No Point of View is Stood Apart. No Word Is Made To Say, This Space Is Empty, or, This Place Is Full. Only Light Itself Is Come –A Merest Touch of Brightness Neither Mind Nor Body Can Deny. It Is the Heart’s Explanation of Reality. It Is Reality, Plain Spoken To the Heart –and By the Heart Alone. It Is the Beautiful, Itself.
Two important art exhibitions in which Adi Da was invited to participate were the Venice Biennale (2007) and the Cenacolo di Ognissanti in Florence (2008), where His Art was exhibited in the same room as the famous large fresco by Domenico Ghirlandaio of "The Last Supper".
Mark Stewart takes us on a brief video tour of the new "Truth For Real" Bookstore and Reading Room (which is also a Video Viewing Room) in Portland, Oregon. This space is dedicated to making the Great Work and Person of Adi Da available in a direct, effective, and classy manner.
The "Bright" Room Gallery is dedicated to the promotion of the art of Adi Da Samraj through exhibitions, lectures, round-table discussions, documentaries as well as seminars on his art and its relationship to various artistic traditions. The "Bright" Room Gallery also exhibits works and supports scholarship inspired by the art and philosophy of Adi Da Samraj.
The gallery maintains a permanent exhibition of works by Adi Da Samraj and is open from Wednesday to Saturday, and once a month on a Sunday, but can also be visited by appointment. The gallery is located in an old monastery in Maria Hoop in the south of Holland close to the borders of Germany and Belgium.
In this talk, given at The Mountain Of Attention on July 3, 1988, Avatar Adi Da Samraj discourses on His Spiritual Transmission, which He describes as transcending space-time and occurring in the "True Realm of Reality". He Reveals the mystery of how it is "very easy" for Him to Spiritually Bless the entirety of the cosmos with His Transmission.
ADI DA: "If you walked into a room, and there were a light shining in the ceiling, it would be shining in all directions. You would see the light at one point, depending on your position in the room, and say 'It's shining on me', as if in some sense the lightbulb noticed you! But in fact the lightbulb is radiating in all directions indifferently. You are in a position to notice it.
Of course you had to come into the room to notice it. If you didn't come into the room, if you stood outside the room, in other words, if you stood apart from this Transmission, from My Company, through some barrier or other, of your own obstruction in mind and emotion and so on, then you wouldn't come in contact with Me, you wouldn't be able to receive this Transmission."

On a rainy afternoon at The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary in 2006, Avatar Adi Da Samraj gave what would be His final discourse in this form (with questions and answers) to His devotees, for the sake of all. He began the occasion with exquisite recitations of His Renderings of key statements from the Buddhist Sages Gotama Sakyamuni (known as “the Buddha”) and Nagarjuna.
Adi Da’s Renderings bring these traditional Buddhist texts to life in a unique manner. As He speaks these ancient gems of instruction, the truth of each text comes through and penetrates the heart. While listening, you might feel that you are now not only in the room with Adi Da Samraj, but also with the Buddhist Sages Gotama Sakyamuni and Nagarjuna!
This audio clip is an excerpt from Adi Da's discourse.
The collection of Avatar Adi Da’s renderings and related discourses became the seed of His book, The Gnosticon, in which He thoroughly examines the Transcendental Teachings of the ancient Sages in relation to His Transcendental Spiritual Way of Adidam.
The Mummery Book by Adi Da Samraj is enacted by the "First Room" Theatre Guild in California on a regular basis. in this film audience members and guild members express the unique and very personal encounter with The Mummery Book.

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.
