Track 5 from Pauline Chew's album, Songs For Baba Da. . . And The World.

Words are from poem 43 in Adi Da's book of poetry, Crazy Da Must Sing.

My loved one sits upon my knee.
My left hand is on her head.
My right hand guides
her listening to my Heart.
My touching awakens her need,
her love for me,
and makes her know me while I speak.

My loved one lies with me.
Our loving appears as every form
of all the worlds.
Our sounds together
make all sounds.
We are the thing that is seen and heard.
We are the rhythmed mind of everything.

Troubles arise for one
who does not know the act
in which he lives.
Therefore, I display the image
of my loved one and me.
One who does not understand
gains power for his lust in holy places.
But one who understands
becomes the lovers’ act that is.

A Devotee's Journey into Death and Backaudio

language: English
event speaker: Frans Bakker
In December 1983, two months after Adi Da's arrival at Adi Da Samrajashram (on the island of Naitauba in Fiji), an accident occurred that would have been fatal without Avatar Adi Da's Intervention. The story of that incident is told by two people: Frans Bakker, one of the doctors involved; and Tom Closser, the devotee to whom the accident occurred, who describes his near-death experience, and a profound lesson about how "guilt" can become a self-destructive impediment to growth.

[Note: The quality of this audio clip is somewhat muffled, and the volume level fluctuates.]

A Lesson about Healingvideo
part 4 of Beyond The Illusion

Toni Vidor talks about healing a non-human friend, the German shepherd, Megan in 1980, at Adi Da's request. She describes a fundamental lesson she learned: if oriented properly, the devotee healer serves as a conduit for Adi Da, and Adi Da does the healing, with an efficacy and speed not otherwise possible.

For much more about Toni's relationship with her Spiritual Master, Adi Da, read her book, Beyond The Illusion.

Tras haber ido a Adi Da en Febrero de 1972, antes de la inauguration del primer ashram de Adi Da, y participar como devoto a lo largo de los años de Su Enseñanza Formal y el Trabajo de Bendición, el señor Sheinfeld fue testigo de toda la vida de Enseñanza, Instrucción y Bendición Espiritual de Adi Da Samraj. Las historias de Gerald dan una visión única de la relación Gurú / devoto, llena de la Sabiduría transformadora de Adi Da y Su humor penetrante del corazón.

Gerald Sheinfeld, a devotee of Avatar Adi Da since the early 1970's, tells a wonderful story about how he found his Guru, Adi Da Samraj and his immediate recognition of Adi Da's unique state of Freedom, Happiness, and Liberation. Gerald speaks about how that recognition of Adi Da has the capacity to awaken others to that state of Prior Unity.

Gerald tells many more stories of his life of more than 45 years with Adi Da in his book, At the Feet of the Spiritual Master. Some of these stories are also available in audio form on his downloadable album, At the Feet of the Spiritual Master.

Adi Da: "It's amazing how controlled people are, in their whole pattern of feeling and living, by patterns that have affected their emotional-sexual impulses, activities, thoughts, concerns. The process of people's experience of life is so arbitrary in many respects. . . . It's just a shuffle of shapes!"
