Vision

The vision of Adidam University is to provide global access to an unique approach to study that serves sacred life, brings secular education in alignment with the sacred, and promotes tolerance and understanding.

We offer this education for adults of all backgrounds, and offer programs for children and young adults as well. We also provide the educational programs for formal members of Adidam, including the core curriculum of study of Avatar Adi Da Samraj’s twenty-three “Source-Texts”, study retreats, practical instruction in topics such as diet, health, exercise, sexuality, and cooperative community, and intensive seminary education.

The Adidam University assumes that each individual, regardless of background, should be the inheritor of the greatest wisdom of humankind. This wisdom, always grounded by the sacred orientation, should be not only received for one’s personal knowledge and spiritual development, but also become the means by which each of us can serve cooperation, tolerance, and true peace among each other and in the world. We assume this truly to be much greater than a merely academic matter—that this access to wisdom is of the greatest importance to each individual and the world.

The core and inspiration of Adidam University’s offerings is Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj’s Wisdom-Teaching. Avatar Adi Da’s Wisdom-Teaching directly offers this greatest wisdom, and His Gift of the Way of Adidam offers the most direct means by which to participate in and receive and ultimately realize this wisdom. All of the offerings of Adidam University are guided by Avatar Adi Da’s Wisdom-Teaching.

Adidam, and Avatar Adi Da’s Wisdom-Teaching, also fully embraces the Great Tradition of humanity’s wisdom from all cultures, religions, arts, sciences, philosophies, and eras of history. This is our “common inheritance” of wisdom, and Avatar Adi Da Samraj has created the unique means by which all traditions can be understood and critically appreciated as a single, dynamic Great Tradition. The vision of Adidam University is thus also to serve all of humanity’s freedom to consider and be transformed by this wisdom, and to benefit by this unique offering of Adidam.

The Adidam University is led by the staff of the Laughing Man Institute, Adidam’s educational department that has, for more than twenty-five years, developed courses, seminars, intensives, and retreats, and, as well developed a unique faculty of scholars and educators in a wide range of disciplines and topics. The “Laughing Man” is the symbol of tolerance and humor in an apparent world of differences. The Adidam University’s vision is that sign of tolerance and humor for all beings.
