Da Samraj is the transcendent and transformational Being
of our era. He is the Good News Who has come as an answer
to our prayers. . . .
Adi Da's insistence on the primary importance of human-scale
cooperative community as the basic unit of the successful
state is bold and refreshing. Each of us bears responsibility
to practice, moment to moment, the ego-surrendering sacrifice

Da's Teaching is neither utopian nor dissociative; it is
simply a radically new human politics based on the Truth.
Even as He transcends the common bonds of the human, Adi
Da remains the Great Teacher of the pragmatic human situation.
How incredibly blessed that He is here at the moment when
we need Him most!

goal as a community is to develop the processes, tools,
and templates that any such community could use anywhere
in the world. What
I gained from Adi Da's instruction about such "cultural
reformation" is that 1) you have to overcome egoity and
2) you have to create human-scale cooperative community.

benefit from Adi Da's Wisdom and Blessing.
