||From a presentation about the Silver Hall at Adi Da Samrajashram. Edited by Alan Corne.
Adi Da recites His "Five Reality-Teachings", as we watch scenes from Adi Da Samrajashram, followed by Darshan of Avatar Adi Da.
1. You are not the one who wakes, or dreams, or sleeps.
2. You Are the actionless and formless Mere Witness of the three common states — of waking, dreaming and sleeping — and of all the apparent contents and “experiences” associated with the three common states, of waking, and of dreaming, and of sleeping.
3. You are not the body, or the doer of action, or the doer of even any of the body’s actions or functions.
4. You are not the mind, or the thinker, or the doer of even any of the actions or functions of mind or of body-mind.
5. No matter what arises — whether as or in the state of waking, or of dreaming, or of sleeping — you Are the actionless, and formless, and thought-free Mere Witness of attention itself, and of every apparent “object” of attention, and of any and every state of “experience”, and of the entirety of whatever and all that arises.
Always intensively “consider” these Five Reality-Teachings.
Always intensively observe and notice every moment of your “experience” — whether waking, dreaming, or sleeping — and, thus and thereby, “consider” and test and directly prove these Five Reality-Teachings in the moment-to-moment of your every kind and state of “experience”.
Avatar Adi Da Samraj, pp. 559-561, The Gnosticon
Darshan (or Sacred Sighting of the Guru) is a particularly potent occasion in which devotees focus on the Divine Revelation that Adi Da is Spiritually Transmitting. (A video recording like this one, of a Darshan occasion, also Spiritually Transmits.) The occasion is usually silent, but is occasionally accompanied by devotees chanting. In some occasions, you may see Adi Da scanning above the heads of the devotees present, working to draw His Divine Light down into each devotee. You may also hear devotees blowing the sacred conch, at the beginning and end of a Darshan occasion, to let everyone know of the Sighting of the Guru. Often, near the end of an occasion, Adi Da will bless a bowl of prasad (often dates, or something similar that is sweet and edible), which is then distributed to everyone present. At the end of a Darshan occasion, you may also see devotees prostrating on the ground in gratitude for the Revelation their Guru just granted them. Adi Da describes Darshan as "the fundamental principle" of Spiritual Realization in this video talk excerpt. Over time, through constant meditation on the Revelation being transmitted by the Realizer, The Realizer's Realization is duplicated in the devotee.
