In Adidam, Danavira Mela, or “The Season of Light-In-Everybody“, lasts from early November (soon after the Celebration of Adi Da’s Birthday on November 3) to the January 11th Celebration of Avatar Adi Da’s Divine Self-“Emergence”. It is a season that is (as Adi Da describes it), “essentially about Light, and about that Light in everybody. It is about acknowledging the characteristic of Light in everybody you know and meet, rather than darkness. It is about love rather than its opposite.”
SACRED HISTORY for Sunday, December 25th
1986 Adi Da Samraj Gathers with devotees and Gives the Talk, “Love Is a Puja”, wherein He Admonishes all devotees to live the direct intimate relationship to Him as Siddha-Master, now and always.
His Divine Presence, Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da, Says:
“Love is a Puja, a small-scale, intimate matter, as your relationship to Me is as well. It is not about the ‘grand victory’ on Earth. It is a heart-matter. The Yoga is to live this Divine intimacy. Honor it. Serve it constantly, in spite of the ‘regulation’ life of suffering. Well—that is a great Yoga, a great discipline. It is what I Do in My intimate sphere. It is what you must do in your intimate sphere—and I Am Central to your intimate life. That is where I live with you, then. That is where your ‘Beloved’ is, in intimacy and not in some ‘yahoo’ cult nonsense. ‘Radical’ devotion to Me is strictly an intimate matter, a truly Transcendental Spiritual matter.”
Adi Da goes on to Say:
“The intimacy of My Transcendental Spiritual Self-Transmission is the circumstance of the Reality-Way of Adidam–not idealism, not philosophy, not the routine of discipline in and of itself, not a life of isolation, but this relationship of Transmission, which, if you were sensitive to it, would break you through to Realization.
All the aspirations or motivations toward the delights by which you are occupied, front and back, must be transcended, by turning to Me, by insight, by understanding, by observation. That is what you must Realize in My Divine Avataric Company.
If you make your devotional relationship to Me the essence, the substance, the foundation of this practice, then the Transcendental Spiritual Transmission in My Mere Presence Is the Substance of this Reality-Way, and not anything of the first six stages of life is the stance of your way of life.” ~Adi Da Samrajashram
