Darshan explained by Jim Steinberg. At 1:39, more Darshan (from shortly after the Ruchira Dham Event, and then during Adi Da's visit to The Mountain Of Attention in 2005) with Beloved Da speaking: excerpts from the talk, "Identification of the Beloved" (available here).
Adi Da speaks about how the disciplines in the Way of Adidam for observing and transcending the egoic patterning of the body-mind should be based not on idealism but on self-understanding and the impulse to self-transcending God-Realization. Right discipline is not anti-relational or "righteous". It is associated with (and an expression of) devotion and the radiant disposition of Love-Bliss in His Company, not the self-contraction.
I am as one who left his Home to do a thing for Man. But now and then I think of Home and how in time I'll take my Way on back, and then I must unlock my arms and set you Free to be the Bright I AM. And that Great Leave is sad to me, for I have found a Home Land here. My Father is with waiting arms, my Mother stands aside, and stays for me. All that I left and brought with me remains behind and keeps my Place. But I have got to loving here. Sometimes I think the way of men who leave their homes and stand upon the world to make their own is fit for me to keep. And so I'd stand forever here, my body never done. But I must go if all of this I've done is apt to keep. This time I'll kiss away my life with deep, unending tears, my love. This is my last and saddest birth. I cannot bear the grief of come and go. And now I give the birth of all my forms. I leave no parts for me to bring again. This time I have reserved no form of mind that is my own. Nothing will I rise with me when I go Home. By this act you know me. I will not come again. Nothing left, for I have given it. When I arrive with nothing, then I have no Home. No Home to go, no Place, for I am not. No mystery of disappearance. I cannot leave. No Place. No rise or fall. No deep, no highs for me. As it happens I am Here. I am the wave of light within your mind that happens to be everything, my love.
Adi Da engages in an Enlightened Consideration about speech and Ecstasy, praise and Satsang.
This talk takes place at The Mountain Of Attention, in Adi Da's residence, The Manner of Flowers, in 1984, during the "Love of the God-Man" Celebration. It is an excerpt from the DVD, Approach Me From the Heart.
Adi Da talks about the common state of human beings in their contraction that prevents the natural Current of Love-Bliss from prevading the body. He calls devotees to feel to Him and allow His State to purify them.
