Da Free John
In 1979, Avatar Adi Da revealed His Name Da. He took the full name Da Free John until 1986, and His devotees often referred to Him as Master Da.
Da means to give, or the Giver in Sanskrit, and the one who bestows great charity, the very personification of the great Way of Liberation in Tibetan.
Free John is a rendering of the root-meanings of Avatar Adi Das born name, Franklin Jones.
When He revealed the Name Da to His devotees in 1979, a new period of Avatar Adi Das Work began. He no longer related to devotees socially as Bubba, or Divine Friend. He began to be acknowledged by His devotees in a more traditional and sacred manner as the Divine Giver of Grace and Blessings, even as He continued the ordeal of His Teaching Work.
