Devotion

The Way of Adidam is the devotional relationship to Me.

—Avatar Adi Da Samraj

The greatest Gift that Avatar Adi Da Offers is a spiritual relationship to Him, and this relationship is the basis for the entire way of life in Adidam.

This is so for one simple reason: “You become what you meditate on”.

As an individual ego-“I”, you can no more Enlighten yourself than you can create yourself. Although we seek to know the Divine, or Happiness, we chronically presume separation from it and are unable to realize it as our own true condition. Avatar Adi Da has called this separative activity “the avoidance of relationship”. The only action that is not the avoidance of relationship is the heart’s opening in love—to the quality of relationship itself, beyond the egoic presumption of “self” and “other”.

Thus, devotion to Avatar Adi Da is not a technique through which His devotees Realize the Divine through sincere effort. Rather, devotion is the intentional, moment to moment, resort to the relationship with Avatar Adi Da.

This resort is made on the basis of a real acknowledgement and recognition of Adi Da Samraj as the embodiment, demonstration, and proof of the Divine, your true and present Condition. By turning always to the relationship with Adi Da, you are drawn into Communion with the Divine beyond the efforts of ego.

Those who practice the Way of Adidam as right, true, full, and fully devotional self-surrender to the Divine Heart-Master, Adi Da Samraj, Realize the Free Heart directly, beyond the efforts of the body and the reaches of insight.
