My Wisdom-Teaching is simple: Only understand. Live with Me and understand. Understand and Fall helpless in the Heart.

—Avatar Adi Da Samraj

Avatar Adi Da’s Teaching is founded on a unique insight into the nature of human suffering: every being is engaged in the activity of contraction from the Divine Condition that is the native state of all.

The “understanding” which Adi Da Samraj calls for and offers is not a mere intellectual grasp of concepts but the awakening of this insight in life. All the devotional and life-practices of Adidam nurture the awakening of this understanding, which, when realized fundamentally, is inherently profound and transforming.
