"I Am Always Already Free" commemorates the Divine Mahasamadhi of Avatar Adi Da, which occurred on His Hermitage Island, Adi Da Samrajashram, on November 27, 2008. This DVD is a very beautiful and deeply moving treasure — one that all those touched at heart by Avatar Adi Da will want to have.
The first track, entitled "Now, and Forever Hereafter" (excerpted here) is a slideshow created immediately after Avatar Adi Das Passing, which includes photographs and video clips from the last month of His life.
We see Avatar Adi Da sitting with devotees at several sacred occasions — Naitauba Padavara Mela (the anniversary of His "First Footstep" onto His Hermitage Island on October 27, 1983), the celebration of Avatar Adi Das 69th Birthday (November 4, 2008), and His last visit during His lifetime to "The Brightness", the Temple where His body was buried.
The slideshow is accompanied by quotes from The Aletheon, recordings of Avatar Adi Da speaking about the nature of His Passing, as well as devotional chanting and music offered to Avatar Adi Da. There is also the rare opportunity to see Avatar Adi Da working intensively, creating His Image-Art in the art studio, Picture Perfect, where His Passing occurred.
Even When My Divinely-Avatarically-Born Human Physical Body Has Died In this "world", I Am Present and every where Alive — Because I Am Always Already Conscious As The Only One Who Always Already Is.
The second track of the DVD (which is not included in the above excerpt) is entitled "Bhagavan's Mahasamadhi", a testimony from Ruchiradama Nadikanta — a member of the Ruchira Sannyasin Order who has been a devotee of Avatar Adi Da for over thirty-five years and who was present in the room with Him at the moment of His Passing.
She shares a very personal story of her experience of her Divine Master's Passing, and reflects on its significance with a gathering of devotees during her visit to the Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary in northern California, in February 2009.
There is a Divine Revelation a miraculous Revelation that Beloved is making... a most profoundly esoteric Secret... and it does transcend all the sorrow and all the other contractions of the body mind.
The purpose...we have as a collective...[is] to come through this and to Realize the Divine Revelation that Beloved has given us, which is the Absolute Reality of His Always Present, Eternal Presence and the fact that He is Here exactly as He has always been, which is such a profoundly miraculous Secret that it surprises me every moment. But He has been Revealing this to me so strongly.
— Ruchiradama Nadikanta
