Notice This  

Notice Thisvideo— 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.

     
The Paradox of Realization  

The Paradox of Realizationvideo— In this talk from 1975, Adi Da talks about the physical, subtle, and transcendental levels of Spiritual Realization.

     
Quello che Accade Dopo la Morte E' Determinato dal Come Si E' Vissuti  

Quello che Accade Dopo la Morte E' Determinato dal Come Si E' Vissutivideo— [Contains Italian subtitles. If the CC icon ("Subtitles/closed captions") has a red line under it, the subtitles should appear. If you don't see them, just press the CC icon to turn them on.] "Quello che Accade Dopo la Morte E' Determinato dal Come Si E' Vissuti" ("What Happens After Death Is Determined By the Way You Live") is published as "After Death, Mind Makes You", in the book, Easy Death. It is from a talk given by Adi Da on December 12, 1988 at Adi Da Samrajashram. 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.

     
Love Is How I Got To Here  

Love Is How I Got To Herevideo— This audio excerpt is from a talk given by Adi Da on April 16, 1995, in Hymns To Me, at Adi Da Samrajashram. Adi Da describes how the preparatory stages of practice of the Reality-Way of Adidam are associated with attention, and how the attachment to attention and all its objects prevents the Realization of Reality As It Is. He goes on to describe the unique advantage that His bodily Incarnation provides in the process of such Realization, for all time, and how the relationship to Him occurs — directly and personally — beyond the life of His human Form.

     
You Can Suffer Or You Can Love  

You Can Suffer Or You Can Lovevideo— In this talk excerpt, Avatar Adi Da speaks about how one must understand the tendency to presume oneself to be a victim, and must transcend all limitation in the process of Real-God-Realization. ADI DA: You can suffer, or you can love. You can complain, or you can surrender. You can abuse, or you can bless. It is really just that simple. True maturity, God-Realizing maturity, manifests great compassion, great love, great help, endures greatly.

     
The Thirsting Heart  

The Thirsting Heartvideo— In this excerpt, Adi Da compares the thirsting heart of the devotee truly moved to God-Realization to a cat in heat. This excerpt is track 6 of the CD, The Impulse to God-Realization, a collection of talks focusing on Adi Da's clarifying Wisdom on the Impulse to Realize God that is inherent in all beings, and His Divine Offering and Instruction on the Ultimate Means to cultivate this heart-Impulse, thereby allowing it to become the guiding force of one's entire life.

The Taboo Against God-Realization  

The Taboo Against God-Realizationvideo— ADI DA: "So what is the struggle, then, that has been going on in your consideration all these years? It's really a struggle between your acknowledgement of the impulse to transcend yourself, and Realize that which can be Realized only in that case. . . your struggle between that motivation, and your rather standard and continuous and obsessive orientation to fulfill yourself." This excerpt is track 5 of the CD, The Impulse to God-Realization, a collection of talks focusing on Adi Da's clarifying Wisdom on the Impulse to Realize God that is inherent in all beings, and His Divine Offering and Instruction on the Ultimate Means to cultivate this heart-Impulse, thereby allowing it to become the guiding force of one's entire life.
