heart, stations of the heart
Avatar Adi Da distinguishes three stations of the heart, associated respectively with the right side, the middle, and the left side of the heart region of the chest. The middle station of the heart is what is traditionally known as the anahata chakra (or heart chakra), and the left side of the heart is the gross physical heart. Avatar Adi Da Samraj has Revealed that the primal psycho-physical seat of Consciousness and attention is associated with what He calls the right side of the heart. He has Revealed that this center (which is neither the heart chakra nor the gross physical heart) corresponds to the sinoatrial node, or pacemaker, the source of the gross physical heartbeat in the right atrium (or upper right chamber) of the physical heart. In the Process of Divine Self-Realization, there is a unique process of opening of the right side of the heartand it is because of this connection between the right side of the heart and Divine Self-Realization that Avatar Adi Da uses the term the Heart as another way of referring to the Divine Self.
The Heart Itself is Real God, the Divine Self, the Divine Reality. The Heart Itself is not in the right side of the human heart, nor is it in (or limited to) the human heart as a whole. Rather, the human heart and body-mind and the world exist in the Heart, Which Is the Divine Being Itself.
Heart-Communion with Avatar Adi Da is the practice of Invoking and feeling Him. It is communion in the sense that the individual loses sense of the separate self in the bliss of that state, and is thus communicating intimately (in a most profound and non-dual manner) with Avatar Adi Da Samraj.
The entire practice of the Way of Adidam is founded in devotional heart-recognition of, and devotional heart-response to, Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj as the Very Divine Being in Person.
The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Way of Adidam (Which is the One and Only by-Me-Revealed and by-Me-Given Way of the Heart) is the Way of life you live when you rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally recognize Me, and when, on that basis, you rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally respond to Me. . . .
If you rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally recognize Me, everything in between vanishes. All of that is inherently without force. In heart-responsive devotional recognition of Me, a spontaneous kriya of the principal faculties occurs, such that they are loosed from the objects to which they are otherwise boundloosed from the patterns of self-contraction. The faculties turn to Me, and, in that turning, there is tacit devotional recognition of Me, tacit experiential Realization of Me, of Happiness Itself, of My Love-Bliss-Full Condition. That Locating of Me opens the body-mind spontaneously. When you have been thus Initiated by Me, it then becomes your responsibility, your sadhana, to continuously Remember Me, to constantly return to this devotional recognition of Me, in which you are Attracted to Me, in which you devotionally respond to Me spontaneously with all the principal faculties. [Hridaya Rosary (Four Thorns Of Heart-Instruction)]
The Tantric traditions of Hinduism and Buddism describe as heroic the practice of an individual whose impulse to Liberation and commitment to his or her Guru are so strong that all circumstances of life, even those traditionally regarded as inauspicious for Spiritual practice (such as consumption of intoxicants and engagement in sexual activity), can rightly be made use of as part of the Spiritual process.
Avatar Adi Da's uniquely Heroic Ordeal, however, was undertaken not for His own sake, but in order to discover, through His own experience, what is necessary for all beings to Realize the Truth. Because of His utter Freedom from egoic bondage and egoic karmas, Avatar Adi Da's Sadhana was Heroic in a manner that had never previously been possible and will never again be possible. As the Divine Person, it was necessary for Him to have experienced the entire gamut of human seeking, in order to be able to Teach any and all that came to Him.
Avatar Adi Da has Instructed that, because of His unique Heroic Demonstration, His devotees can simply practice the Way He has Revealed and Given, do not have to attempt the (in any case impossible) task of duplicating His Ordeal. (See also Crazy.)
Hridaya is Sanskrit for the heart. It refers not only to the physical organ but also to the True Heart, the Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Reality. Hridaya in combination with Avatar signifies that Avatar Adi Da is the Very Incarnation of the Divine Heart Itself, the Divine Incarnation Who Stands in, at, and as the True Heart of every being.
Hridaya Rosary (Four Thorns Of Heart-Instruction)The Five Books Of The Heart Of The Adidam Revelation, Book Four: The Late-Time Avataric Revelation Of The Universally Tangible Divine Spiritual Body, Which Is The Supreme Agent Of The Great Means To Worship and To Realize The True and Spiritual Divine Person (The egoless Personal Presence Of Reality and Truth, Which Is The Only Real God) is Avatar Adi Da's summary and exquisitely beautiful Instruction relative to the right, true, full, and fully devotional practice of the Way of Adidam, through which practice Avatar Adi Da's fully practicing devotee Spiritually receives Him with ever greater profundity, and, ultimately (through a process of the Spiritual melting of the entire psycho-physical being), Realizes Him most perfectly.
Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru is a compound of traditional Sanskrit terms that has been newly created to express the uniqueness of Avatar Adi Da's Guru-Function. Sat means Truth, Being, Existence. Thus, Sat-Guru literally means True Guru, or a Guru who can lead living beings from darkness (or non-Truth) into Light (or the Living Truth).
Samartha means fit, qualified, able. Thus, Samartha Sat-Guru means a True Guru who is fully capable of Awakening living beings to Real-God-Realization.
The word Hridaya, meaning heart, refers to the Very Heart, or the Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Reality.
Thus, altogether, the reference Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru means the Divine Heart-Master Who Liberates His devotees from the darkness of egoity by Means of the Power of the 'Bright' Divine Heart Itself. Avatar Adi Da has Said that this full Designation properly summarizes all the aspects of My unique Guru-Function.
The Sanskrit word Hridaya means the Heart Itself. Shakti is a Sanskrit term for the Divine Manifesting as Energy. Hridaya-Shakti is thus the Divine Power of the Heart, Which is Given and Transmitted by Avatar Adi Da Samraj.
In Hindi, shaktipat means the descent of Divine Power, indicating the Sat-Guru's Transmission of the Kundalini Shakti to his or her devotee.
Hridaya-Shaktipat, which is Avatar Adi Da's seventh stage Gift to His devotees, is the Blessing-Transmission of the Divine Heart Itself.
Avatar Adi Da's extended Instruction relative to Hridaya-Shakti and Kundalini Shakti is Given in Ruchira Avatara Hridaya-Siddha Yoga.

Hridayam is Sanskrit for heart. It refers not only to the physical organ but also to the True Heart, the Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Reality. Hridayam is one of Avatar Adi Da's Divine Names, signifying that He Stands in, at, and as the True Heart of every being.
