No one like me has appeared in this place before. Am I only to live and die, and thus feed the earth? Should I only live and die, and thus create the mystery of a holy ground? Will generations pass this place of my dilemmas, feel the movements under foot and never know the reasons and the meaning of the currents of bliss that fill them? Will the earth itself perform my only shout? Will the rot of my few bodies be my only song? Will no one understand? Will all of this, even the holy ground, fall unknown into the sea, without a parcel of my living left to heal the feet of pilgrims? No one else can suffer the mysteries of my birth or death. And only my own children can build a temple where I rise and fall.
This recitation is disc two, track 1 of the double-CD, After My Lifetime, an exceptional collection of Adi Da’s Instruction covering the significance of His Divine Mahasamadhi (the passing of His physical Body), the ever-present Gift of the direct relationship to Him, and the never-ending Nature of His Work to Bless and Awaken all beings.

Hymns to me, am I the song, the untouched glamour of the poem, the word and rhythm of the Real. Then sing. And sing of me, am not the soul. The type whose singing sings the Heart, the vowel and consonants am I. Then sing. And say of me, he is the sound, the syllable who is my form, and hymns me, is me, song to song.
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.

Adi Da Samraj communicates his "Bright" Realization and the purpose of His liberating work through poems He wrote between 1971 and 1976, published in the book, Crazy Da Must Sing.
On August 12, 1982 (two weeks after writing the last poem), Adi Da read aloud the collected poems from Crazy Da Must Sing to a group of His devotees in a single session. His recitations of some of those poems are included in this podcast. A recording of the entire occasion (with His reading of all the poems) is available on this CD from the Dawn Horse Press.
The world is endlessly allowed to be until I die. I Am the Heart's Shout. The worlds are endlessly involved with me while I appear, in forms that know them. But when I die and disappear from worlds where I have lived, there is no absence. My life has never made a world for me. I Am the Heart that Shouts them.
