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.

The Quest for The Historical Selfvideo

length: 04:05
date added: October 31, 2012
event date: 2004
language: English
In this discourse, Adi Da proposes that all human lifetimes are a “quest for the historical self”. He describes how this search is based on the activity of “self”-contraction — the erroneous presumption of an actual, defined, knowable “self”.

Fear of Lifevideo
poster: TheBeezone
length: 05:50
date added: October 18, 2012
event date: September 18, 2004
language: English
Adi Da speaks about the fear of death being a characteristic of life and identification with the body-mind. Adi Da relates this to the fundamental condition of ignorance and the nature of reality. He draws His listeners into considering that the ego has a more fundamental context than even death, as the most primal action of the human condition.

date added: October 11, 2012
event date: September 18, 2004
language: English
Adi Da Samraj takes a devotee through a consideration about death.

The Five Declarations: Epiloguevideo

length: 02:47
date added: September 21, 2012
event date: January 6, 2006
language: English
Part of an Avataric Revelation Discourse given at the Mountain of Attention Sanctuary, later published in Reality Is All The God There Is.

Adi Da offers His unique renderings of the Dharma of the great sages of Advaita Vedanta and Buddhism, including Gotama Sakyamuni, Nagarjuna, Shankara, and Ribhu. Rather than simply translate their teachings from available source texts, Avatar Adi Da respeaks them as one who has personally realized their truth. He reveals that the Buddhist “Nirvana” and the Advaitic “Brahman” point to the same Transcendental Condition. Avatar Adi Da’s rendering restores to these texts the profundity intended by the Spiritual Masters who created them.
