You Do Not Thinkvideo
poster: AdiDaVideos
length: 06:53
date added: October 1, 2016
event date: October 10, 2004
language: English
This is an excerpt from the DVD, Locate What Is Real, an Avataric Discourse given by Adi Da on October 10, 2004.

In this excerpt, Adi Da explains how all the beings and things we tend to presume have an independent existence are in fact only apparitions arising in a single, universal Consciousness and are modifications of a single, underlying Divine Reality. Adi Da notes that the presumption that we are generating our actual thinking process is a part of this apparition. He says that even thoughts themselves are only an activity arising in Consciousness, and, if we truly examined this activity, we would notice that we are not generating the thinking process.

On the full DVD:
* Adi Da describes how Reality is the true “first experience” for everyone — more fundamental to existence than identification with the apparently “born” being.
* He speaks about how music and other arts can function as extensions of Spirituality.
* He talks about Ramana Maharshi and the sixth stage orientation, in contrast to His seventh stage Reality-Way.
* He addresses a devotee’s experience of emotional trauma, and how such events can affect one’s life.
* He describes His own Submission, in His early life, to the process of Christian mystical experience.

The Unique Signs of the Seventh Stage Realizationvideo
poster: frank marrero
length: 19:38
date added: October 31, 2012
language: English
Adi Da Samraj responds to a question from devotee Ruchiradama Nadikanta while she speaks about the Ashtavakra Gita, a text within the sixth stage tradition of Advaita Vedanta.

Adi Da (at 2:30) clarifies the distinctions between the first six stages of life and the seventh stage Realization. He focuses on the distinction between the most advanced Realization of the sixth stage of life, sixth stage Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi, and the seventh stage Realization. Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi is demonstrated by Ramana Maharshi, for example, and suggested by texts such as the Ashtavakra Gita, the Ribhu Gita, and the Tripura Rahasya (all mentioned by Adi Da in this clip) which Adi Da calls "premonitory" relative to the seventh stage of life. Sahaj Nirvikalpa Samadhi differs from the less advanced trance samadhis of the sixth stage in that one recognizes conditional existence as arising in the Self, and one can function in the world open-eyed. Even so, there is still a separation between Self and world. The seventh stage Realization is signalled by the regeneration of Amrita Nadi, and the complete dissolution of any difference between Consciousness and Its Radiance. Consequently, the lifetime of the seventh stage Realizer is signed by a progressive Outshining of conditional existence that goes through four stages: Divine Transfiguration, Divine Transformation, Divine Indifference, and Divine Translation.

You Can't Get There From Herevideo
Episode 3 of The Radical Truth Video Series

poster: AdidamVideos
length: 07:36
date added: January 28, 2009
language: English
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.

The excerpt is from the DVD, Human History Is One Great Tradition. Subtitles in English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Finnish, Polish, Czech, Chinese, Japanese, and Hebrew. A CD version is also available.

This talk excerpt is followed by a clip of Darshan of Adi Da (at 6:21).
