This bodily (human) Form is temporary Means — and, after the Lifetime of This bodily (human) Form, the Reflections of It, the Murti-Forms (and so on), will, like the Leelas Generated by My Appearance in This Form, be forever Instructive and Useful as "Points" of concentration, Means Whereby to enter into Communion with Me.
I will still be Merely Present then.
— His Divine Presence, Avatar Adi Da Samraj "Love Is How I Got to Here", The Eternal One
How can the Gifts given by the human Incarnation of the Divine Being ever be repaid? When the Grace of Adi Da's human Appearance and the Outpouring of Gifts He gave through the course of His Life are noticed and truly felt, the heart knows it cannot ever repay such Gifts.
Nevertheless, on the first anniversary of Avatar Adi Da's Divine Mahasamadhi (November 28 and 29, 2009), devotees, family, and friends of Adi Da Samraj gathered at Adi Da Samrajashram, Fiji (Adi Da's principal Hermitage) to acknowledge this.
For seven joyful hours, they spoke their praise and recognition of His Greatness, their love and respect for Him, and their heart-felt gratitude for the Blessings He showered upon all beings during His Lifetime.
In these two evenings, many individuals shared their stories:
Avatar Adi Da's sister and His daughters
one of His senior renunciate devotees who served Him directly for 35 years
devotees from around the world — including Europe, the Americas, India, Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji,
individuals who grew up around Avatar Adi Da
those who served His literary and artistic Work over many years
those who were moved to professionally serve the manifestation of Avatar Adi Da's Image-Art in the world
The cumulative effect of these evenings — in the room and witnessed world-wide — was that all were immeasurably brightened by Avatar Adi Da Samraj.
A Tribute to the Life and Work of His Divine Presence, Avatar Adi Da Samraj is a double-DVD package recorded during these two evenings.
It includes not only these rich and intimate testimonials, but many wonderful visual and musical remembrances of Avatar Adi Da's Life and Work over the years — a human Lifetime through which His Transcendental Spiritual Revelation emerged, fully and completely.
There are five slideshows of Adi Da in various phases of His Life and Work, always demonstrating the fullness of His Divine Revelation. The example below features music written and performed by His daughter, Naamleela Free Jones.
The soundtrack for this slideshow is available on Naamleela's recording "Eyes In Other Worlds." Learn more about music by Naamleela Free Jones by clicking on this link.
As you watch these DVDs, you will have the opportunity to feel and experience the tangible Gifts of Avatar Adi Da's Divine Revelation as Given through the course of His Lifetime.
On the evenings of November 28 and 29, 2009, all who participated felt His direct Blessing and the eternal Nature of that immense Revelation-Work. This occasion is now available for you to treasure and enjoy.
These two evenings of tribute occurred at a finite moment in time, but recognition of and gratitude for Adi Da's Life and for His Eternal Presence are an ongoing process.
The second excerpt from the DVD is a delightful personal testimonial from a longtime devotee, Gerald Sheinfeld, illustrating the miraculous way that Avatar Adi Da Blessed His devotees through even the most ordinary of life events.
