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).

An excerpt from the talk, Relinquish The Mummery Of This World.

This talk is from the first occasion in many years in which Avatar Adi Da spoke directly to a gathering of His devotees in California. Questions from devotees about intimate, familial, and social issues are met with Avatar Adi Da's Compassion and Humor, as well as His Liberating Wisdom.

From considering the "seed theme" of His Mummery Book, to describing His mindless and Indivisible State, Avatar Adi Da weaves a masterful tapestry of Instruction and Blessing. He Calls for and Transmits the most profound understanding possible of human life and sacred practice.

The complete talk is available as a DVD from The Dawn Horse Press.

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.

This video excerpt is from the DVD, Enter Into Unlimited Profundity, which is available from The Dawn Horse Press. Subtitles in English, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Polish, Czech, and Hebrew. There is also an associated Adidam Revelation Magazine article, and a CD version is also available.

In this Adidam Revelation Discourse from January 21, 2005, Adi Da reveals that Liberation cannot ever be achieved through sex, science, or religion! And He makes the astounding assertion, “Realization has nothing to do with the body-mind.”

Watch this DVD for Adi Da's Instruction on True Freedom, which He says is discovered only in the utter transcending of “point of view”, by means of the Transmission of Reality Itself. "The 'self'-contraction, the 'point of view', the 'point-of-view'-machine and what it presumes to be Reality, the illusions of Reality created by 'point of view' — these are the important matters to be understood. The 'you' to which you refer as 'I', the ego-'I', is a 'point-of-view'-machine. It is subject to the illusions of the cosmic apparition, the illusions that 'point of view' itself is subject to — space-time, mass, and so forth."

The DVD, Beyond Sex, Science, and "self", is available from The Dawn Horse Press. Subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Czech, and Hebrew. A CD version is also available.

Excerpt from the 2-CD set, The Way Beyond Ego.

A summary communication of the practice and Grace essential to the real process of Divine Liberation—given in October 2004 and April 2005.

In the Discourses selected for these CDs, Avatar Adi Da leads His listeners through the maze of egoic misinterpretation of real Spiritual practice by articulating and debunking the errors that occur when such practice is engaged from the point of view of egoity (or presumed separateness). Avatar Adi Da clarifies, again and again, that the Way He Offers is not a Way of thought or philosophy, effort or escape, experiences or techniques—rather, Adidam is based solely on the inherent heart-attraction to That Which Is Beyond all conditional states, That Which Is Always Already the Case, That Which Is Perfect Divine Love-Bliss, and Which is Appearing in and as His human Form. In summary, in these Talks, Avatar Adi Da elucidates the essence, and the necessary foundation principles, of the devotional and Spiritual Way of Adidam.

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.

The Unique Signs of the Seventh Stage Realizationvideo

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.
