Adi Da claimed to have been Swami Vivekananda in a past life, and said that in a previous incarnation Lenz was a disciple. Later, Adi Da began to exhibit his digital art and photography.
Adi Da had four children: three biological daughters with three different women, and one adopted daughter. Fundamental to Adi Da's religious philosophy is the essentially "eastern" religious concept that the purpose of human life is spiritual enlightenment , an awakening to ultimate reality that is the natural state of all human beings though seemingly obscured.
Adi Da said that what keeps human beings from experiencing this ultimate, enlightened reality is the activity of ego , which he stated is the source of all emotional, psychological, and spiritual dissatisfaction.
He called this activity "self-contraction," and defined it as a psychological mechanism lying somewhere beneath the normal level of conscious awareness, leading people to believe they are limited, suffering individuals.
He said that fundamentally, all efforts to unite with the divine from the point of view of a separate self were futile, since that separate self itself is illusory.
Adi Da developed a map of potential human and spiritual evolution that he called "the seven stages of life". The first six stages account for all permutations of religion and culture throughout history, as well as levels of personal development.
Adi Da categorized the fourth, fifth, and sixth stages of life as the highest respective stages of human development.
He characterized those who have reached these stages as "saints", "yogis", and "sages", including other religious figures such as Gautama Buddha and Jesus Christ.
Relative to this spectrum, Adi Da stated that while some "yogis, saints, and sages" had occasionally indicated some awareness of a "seventh stage", only he as a unique avatar had ever been born fully invested with the capability to fully embody it; furthermore, as the first "Seventh Stage Adept" only he would ever need to or be capable of doing so.
The culminating awareness of this seventh stage is a permanent, natural state of "open-eyed ecstasy", for which Adi Da employed the Sanskrit term Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi.
Adi Da insisted that since he solely embodied seventh stage realization, devotional worship of him would henceforth be the exclusive means for others to free themselves from "self-contraction", thereby allowing them to "participate in his enlightened state" i.
Adidam refers to both the organization of Adi Da's devotees and the religion he taught. The organization, or church, founded initially in , went by many earlier names, including the Dawn Horse Communion, the Free Communion Church, the Laughing Man Institute, the Crazy Wisdom Fellowship, the Way of Divine Ignorance, and the Johannine Daist Communion.
Adidam presupposes an eastern view of divinity and accepts the concepts of karma , reincarnation , chakras , etc. It also employs many Sanskrit terms and concepts.
God, or the divine, is seen as a principle and energy, a consciousness that predates creation but is not a willful creator itself.
Though earlier manifestations were more eclectic and experimental, over time Adidam increasingly came to resemble the Hindu tradition of bhakti yoga.
While devotion to Adi Da and the study of his teachings are the primary features of Adidam, other specified practices are also prescribed, including the study of other religious texts, physical exercises, regulation of sexuality, and a raw vegan diet.
Adi Da said that after his death there would not be any further teachings or "revelations", and that his message was complete.
He was emphatic that no individual assert themselves as his representative or heir. While the church is based on Naitaba Island, Fiji, there are five officially designated ashrams, or "sanctuaries", belonging to Adidam.
Three are located in North America, with another in Hawaii. Followers of Adidam have been ambitious and prolific in their dissemination of Adi Da's books and teachings; however, the church is estimated to have remained more or less constant at approximately 1, members worldwide since , with a high rate of turnover among membership.
Adi Da wrote prolifically about his spiritual philosophy, creating the Dawn Horse Press in to publish his books.
It continues to print many Adi Da-authored titles. First published in , it has been reissued in a number of editions, undergoing extensive revisions and additions.
In the last decade of his life, Adi Da created visual art. These works were primarily photographic and digitally produced. He labeled his style "Transcendental Realism.
The Spectra Suites , a book of Adi Da's art, has an introduction by American art historian and critic Donald Kuspit.
From to , philosophical theorist and author Ken Wilber wrote a number of enthusiastic endorsements and forewords for Adi Da's books, including The Dawn Horse Testament , The Divine Emergence of the World-Teacher , and Scientific Proof of the Existence of God Will Soon Be Announced by the White House!
Later, Wilber alternated between praise and pointed criticism. By all means, look to him for utterly profound revelations, unequaled in many ways; yet step into his community at your own risk.
In , yoga and religion scholar Georg Feuerstein formally became a follower of Adi Da and wrote a number of introductions to Adi Da books.
He later renounced this affiliation, becoming publicly critical of Adi Da and the community surrounding him in Fiji.
Feuerstein devoted a chapter to Adi Da in his book Holy Madness: Spirituality, Crazy-Wise Teachers, and Enlightenment. Asian-Religions scholar Scott Lowe was an early follower of Adi Da and lived in the community in In an essay later analyzing what he had witnessed as well as Adi Da's subsequent career, he perceives a pattern of "abusive, manipulative, and self-centered" behavior, saying "does it necessarily follow that the individual who is 'liberated' is free to indulge in what appear to be egocentric, hurtful, and damaging actions in the name of spiritual freedom?
I personally think not, while acknowledging the subtlety and complexity of the ongoing debate". Lowe and others have also criticized Adi Da's claims toward the exclusivity of his realization.
In part, critics point to his earlier message, strongly rejecting the necessity for any religious authority or belief, due to "enlightenment" being every individual's natural condition.
Adi Da heavily edited subsequent editions of his books, for which they have been criticized as auto- hagiography and self-mythology.
University of Southern California religion professor Robert Ellwood wrote, "Accounts of life with [Adi Da] in his close-knit spiritual community [describe] extremes of asceticism and indulgence, of authoritarianism and antinomianism Supporters of the alleged avatar rationalize such eccentricities as shock therapy for the sake of enlightenment.
In a foreword to the edition of Adi Da's autobiography The Knee Of Listening , religious scholar Jeffrey Kripal described Adi Da's total corpus as being "the most doctrinally thorough, the most philosophically sophisticated, the most culturally challenging, and the most creatively original literature currently available in the English language.
Physician and homeopath Gabriel Cousens wrote an endorsement for Adi Da's biography The Promised God-Man Is Here , saying, "it has deepened my experience of Him as the Divine Gift established in the cosmic domain".
Psychiatrist Elizabeth Kübler-Ross wrote an endorsement for Adi Da's book Easy Death , referring to it as a "masterpiece". Dear Devotees, It is the middle of the night here at Adi Da Samrajashram, devotees remain in what is now clearly the Mahasamadhi Vigil of Beloved Bhagavan Sapta Na Adi Da Samraj.
The time of Beloved Bhagavan's Divine Mahasamadhi is being placed at approximately PM on Thursday, November 27th, Everyone here has been shocked at how quickly the Mahasamadhi occurred.
Bhagavan Adi Da was sitting in His Chair Working in Picture Perfect. Just a minute before, He had been Giving Instructions relative to His Divine Image Art.
A few minutes before that, He had been speaking humorously and laughing. And then He silently fell over on His Side and within a very short period of no more than a couple of minutes, He had entered into His Mahasamadhi.
Charles Seage and Dr. Andrew Dorfman diagnose that Beloved Bhagavan suffered a fatal heart attack. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
