From the beginning of His work with devotees, Adi Da has always emphasized that
the Way of Adidam is not a technique, but instead is all about the relationship

as a Revelation, not a belief (part 1); determining whether one has recognized
Adi Da as the Divine Person (part 1); recognition as the primary requirement for
becoming a devotee and for growing in the Way of Adidam (part 2); how the recognition

capability (part 4); how moments of recognition are Adi Da's gift to us, but the
recognition capability is our gift to Him (part 4); and the "recognition
consideration" for prospective devotees, whose successful conclusion (the
Revelation Itself) dissolves all questions or doubts they may have about becoming
Adi Da's devotee (part 5).
