"True culture must accommodate and tolerate everyone in whatever stage of life they represent.
But it must also not fail to inform and guide each individual in the means of growth in those stages."
Adi Da Samraj

A 'Cautionary' Disclaimer

Due to the continued misunderstandings readers have of Adi Da and his teachings.


Adi Da is not generally understood and accepted as a True Realizer by the casually curious. He is seen by the typical reader - both the 'TV-minded’ consumer and the guarded skeptic - as a 'glorified egotist' and someone to stay away from. This warning to keep away is in some sense correct, but for the wrong reasons! The 'TV-minded', the hopeful consumer, and the independently minded skeptics who need to keep their guard up should stay away. For Adi Da is a Light and a Fire. Adi Da is not a 'darling' - he does not speak or teach to satisfy those who are looking for comfort in 'hopeful' philosophy, or needing to buy a consumer message that ‘you are loved’ and ‘everything works out ok’. Adi Da does not teach to ‘win’ any fictional dharma battles. Adi Da talks and teaches 'The Real'. He does not ‘save face’ or save ego, he goes to the root of the sense of separate self. He's a no-nonsense, straight-shooting, Liberating Blissful Fire. He will attract and repel you in an instant! He will confound your mind so quickly you will feel you are spinning in a cyclone of mirrors. And you know something, you will be. For the Light of the Real is the perfect reflector - and you will only see yourself and what you have not fully inspected. So, best be hip to this - and do not enter casually. And if you do enter, do so with the full understanding that you will be Tested and Confronted by a Great Light, AND a most sublime Attraction, by which 'the ego' will be addressed for what it indeed is - an illusion and a cramp looking for release. So be it.
