W tym wykładzie z 10 października 2004 r. Adi Da Samraj wyjaśnia, w jaki sposób wszystkie istoty i rzeczy, o których z przyzwyczajenia zakładamy, że są niezależnymi i oddzielnymi bytami, są w rzeczywistości tylko przejawem modyfikacji powstających w jednej, uniwersalnej Świadomości i są modyfikacjami jednej, niepodzielnej Boskiej Rzeczywistość. Avatar Adi Da zauważa, że nawet nasz proces myślenia jest przejawem tego procesu. Mówi, że same myśli są tylko działaniem powstającym w Świadomości, i gdybyśmy naprawdę zbadali tę aktywność, zauważylibyśmy, że NIE generujemy procesu myślenia.

In this talk, "Nutzt Euer Leben" ("Use Your Life") from 1988, Adi Da discusses death, and how, through consideration, we can (and should) very readily come to the certainty that we survive death. Given that certainty, we then should practice not merely for the sake of improving one's circumstance while alive, but in the context of Eternity, relative to the Great Matter in God: the Realization of the Divine.

Excerpt from an Avataric Discourse given by Adi Da Samraj on October 6, 2005, at the Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary.

ADI DA: "I find people's sorrows and losses to be heartbreaking and terrible and an immense burden and I am sympathetic and bless people in their trouble. However you must understand that is the nature of this place. This is not utopia, it is not paradise. It is a place of death, endings, suffering, brief amusements. It is not enough and merely to react to your difficulties for overlong and try to make an entire life out of it is fruitless. You do have to move on beyond that reaction to any moments suffering and loss. You must know the place you’re in and live in accordance with that knowledge instead of being sympathetic with some false view of the world or self or trying to idealize some aspect of potential experience, indulging in what amounts to addictions, repetitions of experiences, in order to avoid the knowledge of what is inherent in life, as well as all the hell that is coming on earth and is here. You will not be fulfilled.”

Tässä erittäin raitistavassa puheessa Adi Da käsittelee sitä tosiasiaa, että se, mihin huomiosi kohdistuu eläessäsi muokkaa huomiotasi ja kohtaloasi elämän jälkeen.

Mitä Tapahtuu Kuoleman Jälkeen ("What happens after death") is published as "After Death, Mind Makes You", in the book, Easy Death.

In this sobering discourse, Adi Da speaks of the condition after death in which mind determines one's circumstance, without the limitations of the body, brain and unconsciousness. He addresses the fact that where one's attention is fixed during life affects attention and destiny after life. He recommends that devotees direct their attention to sadhana so that the purification process gives one wisdom that frees one from karmic limitations.

Avatar Adi Da gave this talk in 1988. The jumping off point for His talk is some mathematical ideas about number and infinity (including different kinds of infinity) that He studied while He was a student at Columbia University. Adi Da makes the point that all such ideas (even the idea of infinity) are limited abstractions motivated by the human need to control. In contrast, Reality Itself is not limited, and is always already free.

This audio excerpt is from the CD, Reality Is Beyond "Point of View".

Avatár Adi Da klade důraz na to, jak je důležité si uvědomit, že jsme jedna lidská rodina. Volá po rozvoji humánního kooperujícího uspořádání. Podotýká, že jednota je nám vrozená a ví se, že to tak je. Naléhavě nás žádá, abychom se sešli a vyřešili to.

"Jednota Lidstva" (The Unity of Humankind) is an excerpt from the Avataric Discourse of August 22, 2004.

Adi Da describes how humankind is a single family, a single species in "diaspora" — dispersed across the earth as the result of migrations from a single point of origin (in Africa) thousands of years ago. Making much of superficial differences due to race, nation, religion, language, tribe, political system, etc. obscures this more fundamental, deeper reality of the unity of humankind. For the sake of everyone's survival, humankind must begin to live on the basis of its unity, and establish a global cooperative order that includes and serves everyone.

The Spiritual Process Has Always Been Lived In Difficult Timesvideo

This is a video excerpt from Adi Da's classic talk, "The Bodily Location of Happiness", which He gave on November 28, 1981. This talk was originally published in the book, The Bodily Location Of Happiness. The full talk is available on DVD and on CD, and as an online transcript.

ADI DA: Life is foolishness. This is no time, in any case, to be tolerant of foolishness. The world is mad, and these are dreadful times. Things are not going to be easier in the years ahead. The spiritual process has always been lived in difficult times. Therefore, the spiritual process tolerates no fool. The spiritual process itself will spit you out. It is not an easy attainment, but a profoundly difficult affair. Even what you have listened to today has been heard by only a fraction of the human race in all of history. The opportunity to practice is extremely rare, and the fulfillment of practice is practically unknown.

In some sense you could say this life is hell. . . The nature of this hell is that we are self-possessed. We are born in un-Happiness and we do not transcend it readily. We constantly pursue Happiness through all kinds of incredibly complex means, and we never attain It. . .

If Spiritual Realizers did not turn about and Teach, this would truly be a hell instead of being like a hell. It would truly be a hell if there were no possibility of Enlightenment, if there were no Teaching, no Spiritual Masters, no sacred Way, no sacred community, no capacity for understanding or self-transcendence.

In this clip, "Venez ŕ Moi par le Coeur" ("Approach Me from the Heart"), Adi Da speaks to devotees in the Manner Of Flowers (at the Mountain Of Attention), during the "Love of the God-Man" Celebration on March 8, 1984. Adi Da talks about praise speech, ecstasy, and Satsang.

The full talk can can be found on the DVD, Approach Me From the Heart.

Some of the questions Adi Da addresses in the full talk are: What is a Divine experience? Who is God that God could be identified over against anything whatsoever? Who is a Spiritual Master if He can find Himself apart from God, such that He could say: “This piece is Me and this piece is God”? How could such distinctions continue in the consciousness of one who has Realized the Divine?

Za hranice sexu, vědy a sama sebevideo

Adi Da Samráj oslovuje fakt, že konečné osvobození či dosažení Realizace nelze nikdy dosáhnout pomocí sexu, vědy nebo náboženství! Tvrdí, že ve skutečnosti "Realizace nemá nic společného s komplexem těla a mysli“. Jedná se o přímou účast v samotné Skutečnosti, která předchází veškerou činnost vykonávanou tělem-myslí.

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.

Jedno z najwcześniejszych nagrań video z Awatarem Adi Da. Tutaj mówi o Wolnym stanie w pełni Urzeczywistnionej Istoty, który, jak wyjaśnia, nie jest ani w nas, ani poza nami.

"Bóg nie jest w nas, ani poza nami" ("God is neither within nor without") is an archival talk from July 15, 1973. One of the earliest video recordings of Avatar Adi Da speaking. Here He talks about the Free State of the fully Realized being, which is neither inward nor outward.

Adi Da: "God is neither within nor without. This is the principle of Satsang [the relationship with the Guru]: the Divine already present, the Divine lived with, the Divine as your Condition."

In this excerpt from a never-before-published discourse, Adi Da speaks about the necessity to become disillusioned with mortal life in a positive sense. Positive disillusionment is emerging when one begins to understand and relinquish the stressful and ultimately futile search for personal survival, worldly happiness, and ultimate life fulfillment. Only then can one be drawn into recognizing, learning about, and ecstatically participating in Reality Itself, in relationship to a True Realizer.
