In this occasion at The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary from October 6, 2005 (the last time Adi Da spoke formally, in response to a devotee's question about practice), a longtime devotee, Cheech Marreo, who recently has had an automobile accident, asks Avatar Adi Da a question about the role of karma in his life and practice. Adi Da, in turn, points to something even more fundamental than the universal law of cause and effect. He also clarifies that the old saying, "through suffering comes wisdom", is just not true. If it were it so, He asserts with amusement, then everyone would be wise — because everyone suffers. Mere suffering makes no difference, unless there is availability to Reality.
At a Darshan occasion in front of Ordeal Bath Lodge (at The Mountain Of Attention), Ivan Kaiser embraced Adi Da with the greatest gentleness and affection. Ivan wept and thanked Him. Adi Da stroked Ivan's hair, kissed him, held his face, and put His hand over Ivan's heart.

Adi Da gives a Radical and profound description of the true nature of the Divine Reality, Stating that the Divine is the substance of all that arises, not the "cause" of anything, Adi Da goes on to describe how it is our own separation from that which is the very Divine, that causes the assumption of separation.
