January, 2004
audio CD
(9 tracks)

 

The Third Fundamental

This CD includes Talk excerpts that address the Third Fundamental, or the disciplining of attention and energy. Adi Da has given two technical forms of practice that support and deepen the always first and fundamental practice of devotional turning to Him. These are the "conscious process" and "conductivity". The "conscious process" supports the turning of the faculty of attention to Adi Da. "Conductivity" practices support the turning of the energy-related faculties (of body, emotion, and breath) to Adi Da.

 
THE "BRIGHT" REVELATION SERIES
     

The God Who Truly Is / Love Is How I Got To Here
The "Bright" Revelation Series (Volume One)

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
August, 2001.
audio CD
(2 CD set)

 

The God Who Truly Is and Love Is How I Got To Here

The God Who Truly Is In this Talk Given on March 28, 1994, Avatar Adi Da describes the Way of Adidam as the utter transcendence of fear. He speaks about finding True God as Source rather than as "Creator", and He describes the (horrifying) mechanism (which He calls the "Making-God") that is actually responsible for generating the conditional universe. Avatar Adi Da closes with spontaneous and ecstatic poetry, picturing the Sublime Peace that is Realized in His Sphere of Love-Bliss. [32 minutes]

Love Is How I Got To Here In this Talk Given April 16, 1995, Avatar Adi Da describes how all of the movements of attention whether toward internal objects or toward external objects do not and cannot become the Realization of Truth. He makes it clear that attention itself is the avoidance of the direct Realization of Truth or Reality. He goes on to describe the unique advantage that His bodily Incarnation represents for the process of this Realization. [62 minutes]


The Realization of "Now" / You Are Only Consciousness Itself
The "Bright" Revelation Series (Volume Two)
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
August, 2002.
audio CD (2 CD set)

 

The Realization of "Now" and You Are Only Consciousness Itself

The Realization of "Now" Avatar Adi Da explores the nature of the physical body-mind. First He reveals the paradox of His Appearance in conjunction with His Body-Mind-Vehicle. Then He explores the impossibility of experiencing the present, or the "now", through the mechanism of a body-mind. The true "now" cannot be achieved through any effort of the body or the mind, but can only be Realized as That Which is Always Already the Case. From December 16, 1996. [58 minutes]

You Are Only Consciousness Itself Avatar Adi Da takes His devotees through a "consideration" of the "Point of View" of the "Perfect Practice" of Adidam--that of Consciousness Itself. He also Reveals the critical importance that every one of humanity be given the "Gift" of the knowledge of the Fundamental Reality and Freedom of Consciousness, which cannot be changed by any experience or event. From November 30, 1998. [57 minutes]


Klik-Klak: The Pattern Patterning and Persist in the In-Depth Process
The "Bright" Revelation Series (Volume Four)
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
August, 2002.
audio CD

 

Klik-Klak: The Pattern Patterning and Persist in the In-Depth Process

Klik-Klak: The Pattern Patterning In this Talk from January 31, 1996, Avatar Adi Da elaborates on a key expression in His Wisdom-Teaching, Klik-Klak, which He uses to describe the mass of conditions that are only constantly shifting and replicating patterns, that never manifest any fixed “objects” or “entities”. He explains that the fundamental error of the presumed separate self is to attempt to superimpose the characteristics of Consciousness Itself onto the Klik-Klak realm. Ultimately, we must Realize That Which is Always Already the Case, Prior to the illusion of Klik-Klak.

Persist in the In-Depth Process In this Talk from December 18, 1996, Avatar Adi Da discusses the accumulated life-patterns that apparently dictate the course of an individuals’ experiences and actions. He examines the fact that bodies are actually “programmed” to die — they are necessarily finite and mortal appearances. He describes the in-depth process of the devotional relationship to Him, which ultimately Realizes the Divine Depth beyond the body, the mind, and attention.

This Talk was published in Drifted in the Deeper Land.

Buddhism, Advaitism, and the Way of Adidam
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
2003
audio CD

 

Buddhism, Advaitism, and The Way Of Adidam

In this Talk, Avatar Adi Da gives a unique summary of the ultimate Realizations in Buddhism and Advaitism (or Advaita Vedanta), and describes the sympathetic likenesses between these traditions and the Way of Adidam. Avatar Adi Da goes on to clarify the uniqueness of the Way of Adidam, which is not based on strategically excluding conditional reality, but on transcending it. The Way of Adidam is characterized by a sensitivity to both the limitations of conditional reality and the impulse to Realize What is beyond conditional reality. With this dual sensitivity, the devotee participates in the Way of Adidam as a truly ego-transcending practice by turning all the faculties of the body-mind to Avatar Adi Da, the Divine Person Incarnate.

Understanding
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
July, 2002.
audio CD

 

Understanding

On the first night of His Teaching-Work (April 25, 1972), Avatar Adi Da Gave this presentation of His radical argument relative to the activity of separation that is the root of all suffering and dilemma. When that activity is understood, then the Real Divine Condition can be felt and Enjoyed. (Note: This Talk was recorded in North Hollywood adjacent to a busy highway, and the sound of traffic in the background makes it difficult to hear Avatar Adi Da Samraj at times.)


Two Essays and A Talk From The Revelation Of Ruchiradam
Recited and Spoken by The Divine World-Teacher, Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj April 20, 2001.

audio CD

 

The Revelation Of Ruchiradam

On April 20, 2001, gathered with a group of devotees, Avatar Adi Da Samraj recited two Essays that He had just completed within the preceding week: “Truth and Religion” (in which He examines the fact that no religion can claim to be the exclusive revelation or “owner” of Truth) and “The Self-Evident Falsity of the Search for Changelessness” (in which He describes the fruitlessness of the ego's motive to attain a changeless state).

In the Talk “There Is Only One Self-Evident Reality and Event”, Avatar Adi Da expands on the themes of the preceding two Essays--by examining the Inherent Nature of Reality Itself (beyond body, thought, change, and presumptions of any kind).

The two Essays, along with the complementary Discourse Avatar Adi Da Gave that night after His recitation, form the first three sections of “The Revelation Of Ruchiradam”, the Epilogue of Eleutherios.

October, 2001.

Garbage and the Goddess

This Talk was given at the Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary in northern California during a historic period of Avatar Adi Da's Work. During this period, Avatar Adi Da spontaneously manifested extraordinary Spiritual experiences in those devotees who were around Him. He did this in order to grant them the important lesson that the Way of Adidam is not about attaining any kind of experience — whether ordinary or extraordinary. Rather, it is about Satsang, or the relationship with Him, and the Divine Spirit-Blessing that is received in His Company. This Talk appears in Avatar Adi Da's Source-Text, He-and-She Is Me.

The Gift Of Discipline

A comprehensive discussion of the origins and function of self-discipline in the Way of Adidam. Avatar Adi Da speaks of how discipline, embraced in the context of the process of God-Realization, is a means of ego-transcendence and breaking through limits. July 2, 1988.

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
April, 2001.
audio cassette

He speaks of how the Guru in the function of prophet is always working to produce a condition in which people's illusions may be undone. He discusses the secrets of Satsang, or the relationship to the Guru — that “truly marvelous condition” in which what we need is abundantly given and real faith awakens. He answers such questions as “What happens when the mind falls into the heart?”, “What do memory and humor have to do with overcoming frustrated desire?”, and “How do we overcome the ‘stink of enlightenment’”?
