Throughout the years of His Teaching-Work, Avatar Adi Da Samraj frequently gathered with His devotees in order to speak to them about the process of true Spiritual life.
"Relinquish the Mummery of This World" records the first occasion in many years in which Avatar Adi Da spoke directly to a gathering of His devotees in California.
In this segment from the beginning of His discourse, a devotee has asked a question about yogic sexual intimacy (an emotional-sexual practice given by Avatar Adi Da as a possible choice for devotees as they mature in the Reality-Way of Adidam).
Avatar Adi Da identifies the questioner as the more significant topic of address.
Adi Da points out the tendency in every questioner to assume the disposition of the ego in relation to Him. Always drawing His listeners beyond the illusion of egoity, He offers profound Instruction on the illusion of separateness and on the true Indivisible Nature of Reality.
The Ultimate Fact of existence Which is Self-Evident, Always Already the Case, is that no matter what arises — no matter what arises — you are only and merely the Witness-Consciousness. You never were, nor are, nor can you become anything else.
And yet... in every waking moment, it seems you do become something else — "point of view", a body-mind, a "self"-idea, a separate "someone", so it seems. This is the "problem". This is what you are suffering. This is suffering.
There is no separate "self".
— His Divine Presence, Avatar Adi Da Samraj
The Complete DVD
Questions throughout this three-hour discourse focus on intimate, familial, and social issues, all of which are met with Avatar Adi Da's Compassion and Humor, as well as His Liberating Wisdom.
From considering the "seed theme" of His Mummery Book to describing His mindless and Indivisible State, Avatar Adi Da weaves a masterful tapestry of Instruction and Blessing.
Adi Da is both Calling for and Transmitting the most profound understanding possible of human life and sacred practice.
After more than three decades, Avatar Adi Da's Teaching-process reached a point of fullness that made further spoken Instruction — such as was recorded on this DVD — unnecessary.
Avatar Adi Da's fundamental gift— during and forever after His physical lifetime— is simply His silent Transmission of Transcendental Spiritual Blessing.
