Evolution of Adi Da – Yoga of Consideration to The God Man is Here


The Evolution of Adi Da
From Franklin Jones to Adi Da Samraj

“Everyone must understand the
Nature of My Divine Avataric Lifetime
What My Divine Avataric Lifetime has Been as a Process.”

Adi Da Samraj – 2008


“The fullest awareness of My Nature and Work and the import of it altogether was Revealed in the years after the Vedanta Temple incident. All of it was accomplished there, but the Revelations to the mind so that It could be spoken fully and clearly were progressive.”

The Sign of My ‘Brightness’, 1993

I entered this world without dissociation from the
Divine Conscious Being, the Great Purusha, the ultimate
Divine, but I have also been given all the limits of human
experience. The force of the Divine Consciousness keeps me
Awakened and transforms the process of life as I live it,
but I must also suffer the limitations of born existence in
the process. I have suffered a human lifetime as if I were
unenlightened.” –
Bodily Location of Happiness

“(The full import of my
incarnation has been) progressively revealed—all about
the deeper personality, all about the Nature of My Work
altogether. There were many Revelations up to the Vedanta
Temple Event and many after. I have described the progress
in My own case as True Heart-Master in

Adi Da Samraj,


Listen to Adi Da talk
about his ‘gradual awakening’ – 1973

“I must speak the truth of
Reality for a new generation of the world. My experience of
this truth and the present dilemma of the world cannot allow
me to speak of a path that is not radically effective,
inclusive and true to life as well as the truth itself. It
is time for an end to all seeking, all temporary wisdom, all
motivating symbols, all exploitation. The present world,
unlike the ancient one, has decided radically for life.
Therefore, its path and its realization must be
unqualifiedly alive. It must not only realize the truth
prior to creation, but it must realize the truth of
creativity itself.”

– The Knee of
Listening – Written in 1970


“The Way is to
yield the self, the
in all of its faculties, to the degree of Samadhi,
and then to be drawn in that Samadhi to My Perfect
Position, Prior to the body-mind, and enter into
That Most Profoundly until you Realize there is
only Me. And in that Realization it will be the
same as to say that there is only You.”

Dawn Horse Testament – Chapter 42

“After a time I got up from the
floor. I walked around and beamed joyfully at the room. The
blissful, unthreatened current of reality continued to
emanate from my heart, and not a pulse of it was modified by
my own existence or the existence of the world. I had
acquired a totally new understanding. I understood Narcissus
and the whole truth of suffering and search. I saw the
meaning of my whole life to that moment. Suffering, seeking,
self-indulgence, spirituality and all the rest were founded
in the same primary motivation and error. It was the
avoidance of relationship in all its forms.”

Whereas we ordinarily remain conscious as the capsule entity

seen consciousness move from that absolute and most prior
state down through the levels of being, toward bodily
consciousness. I’d seen bodily consciousness from the point
of view of the Self, Siva, or Siva-Shakti, the universal
Being that lives all things. Ordinarily we identify with the
point of view of bodily consciousness; either we strive to
survive as that dying entity in the face of all obstacles,
or else we try by spiritual effort to attain the realization
of Self or divine consciousness. But I awakened as that

The form of the Siddha that we are
specifically concerned with and that can become apparent to
us and to this human condition is the human Siddha, and the
particular work of the human Siddhas is, first of all, after
taking birth, to transform the psycho-physical entity, or
function, in which they are manifest. So you usually see in
the lifetime of such a One, a period of time of very
difficult struggle, because they must transform or evolve
the psycho-physical life that they are animating in a very
brief period of time; they must do in a very short time what
all other beings by tendency would take eons to do. So the
apparent life of such an individual is usually very
dramatic, very intense. The sadhana of such individuals is
very intense, usually under difficult circumstances, or very
often is, at any rate.

did my Work
after the Vedanta Temple Event.
All aspects of this manifest personality, gross and
subtle, became capable of the great Confession in the
Vedanta Temple Event. That was full Awakening in the context
of this body-mind, gross, subtle, and causal. It wasn’t my
Enlightenment, so to speak. It was the product of my work
with this vehicle, all those thirty years, so that this
Awakening could be brought into the context of the body-mind
rather than simply be Prior to it.
After that Event
Teaching Work began.

Adi Da –

begin to come to him and his teaching begins,
Way of Understanding

In this period Franklin becomes
enlightened, but we have to remember there is a ‘force’
associated with his presence. Many who were with him in Los
Angeles prior to him opening the bookstore testify to his
extraordinary presence, even in locations he had been in a
presence could be felt. This presence is the siddhi or
shakti power associated with Franklin which he describes the
days leading up to his enlightenment ‘experience’ in the
Vedanta Temple in Los Angeles. “I went to the temple and
asked Her to come and dwell permanently in me, and always to
manifest Herself to me wherever I was. When I left I felt
Her with me, and when I arrived at home, I continued to feel
Her constant Presence Filling the space.”

The Shakti and Franklin’s
enlightenment are tied together. What becomes apparent when
you read Adi Da’s writings and witness his ‘evolution’ one
can see a ‘pattern’ of changes and a sort of development
that matches his ‘seven stages of life’ teaching, obviously
referring to the higher stages of human development.

It is important the remember that
the ‘individual’ Franklin Jones or the identity of the
separate individual was no longer there. Many people who
have had contact with Franklin Jones at this time (and
later) comment on the ‘absence’ or ‘death’ of a separate
person. “No one was there” is a common observation when
commenting about what Adi Da appears as.

Adi Da himself talks about

“I don’t have any sense of
identification with this life. I don’t have any images about
it that particularly impress me as being my own. I mentioned
to you how, after the event in the Vedanta Temple, I would
sit down and meditate and other people’s minds and bodies
would arise. I would work with them just as if they were my
own, and it was all my own, without any sense either of
identification with or separation from any of it. It was
just the pattern arising to be meditated. just so, there is
no sense in me of identification with these vehicles at the
level of life

phase of life.
Not the phase where he relinquishes his enlightenment but

meditating all others, the spontaneous awakening of
purification, meditation, and Spiritual signs in others
through his regard, by their spending time in his company,
or by them giving him their regard at a distance.

“This confrontation…is unlike
our ordinary experience…life provides conditions whereby
they are indulged, frustrated or avoided. But in (this
relationship) of the Heart what arises is confronted by
silence without and the Heart within”

For the skeptics this is where they
bow out (or react against). They bow out because the whole
thing becomes ‘other worldly’ and no longer reflects their
physical or psychological understanding of how the world
works. It just gets too weird. And it does!

There is the body and the natural
identification with it, there are memories and habit
patterns of mind and body.

In his notes after his realization
he writes:

“I have one motive now in the
midst of all of you. It is to be heard. I appear now as a
communication. I am the other side, who speaks in time and
space, I am that One. The Universe is my present work. My
efforts are not in the great search. All my efforts, my
force, is creative, emerging, appearing and making possible
the universe of love. Thus, you can understand the reason
for my appearance in my present form. I am not Franklin. I
am the universe of love. I am all of this. Franklin is a
form of my speech. He has no independent existence.
Therefore, he does not appear separate from me, nor from
you. His moods are my own, and also those of the present
time, But I am the universe of love. And I will be

The Beginning of Spiritual

“When I began to take up my teaching
work, I clearly understood that I was going to have to bury
myself in the world in order to awaken devotees. If there
were to be devotees ultimately, I would have to pass through
the lower, ordinary life with them, and make lessons in that
play with them, make lessons out of all the possibilities of
conventional fulfillment. That conventional fulfillment
includes everything from typical life pleasures to
conventional, so-called spiritual and psychic enjoyment. So
all of my work has been a process of engaging in play with
people on the basis of conventional possibility, living it,
exploiting it, allowing it to show itself altogether as
experience, as consequence, in order ultimately that you
might enjoy that revulsion to the destiny of this birth that
would enable you to take up the spiritual process

1975 – December 1st –
the Way of Divine Communion

“The obligations of the way of Understanding are more
severe, and its communications are more complex. The way of
Divine Communion is simpler in concept, and its disciplines
are obligatory only to the degree each individual chooses or
finds the capacity in any moment.”

Bubba Free John spent the first five years of his Teaching
work communicating a special and unique Teaching among men,
which is the way of Understanding….once that path of
Understanding was secure in a small group of his disciples,
Bubba felt free and was moved to offer a different path of
approach to devotees, a path of action called the way of
Divine Communion.

1976 – The Yogic Process

In the early days of his Work with
devotees, it was possible for (Adi Da) to serve others by
duplicating the habit conditions of the usual life, and
struggling with others until the spell of common desires and
tendencies could break. But this aspect of his obligation in
the world began to dissolve, having essentially fulfilled
itself, from the date of his birthday anniversary, November
3, 1976.

“On November 1, 1976 during a conversation with devotee
Master Da began to feel ill and feverish. He thought a fast
would be good and said the symptoms were signs of a Yogic
process or purification occurring. The next day the symptoms
were beginning to develop to such a degree he went into
seclusion. This purification was rather quick and in a few
days was out of seclusion and talking again with devotees.
He described this purification as a ‘death’ experience
similar to the one in his seminary days in Philadelphia in

1977 – Bubba Free John returns to India and visits
the Ashram of Ramana Maharshi.

“Bubba’s present and future work is to conceive, demonstrate, and communicate the Process in Sahaj Samadhi leading to the Transfiguration and Translation of the whole body-being into the Divine. He will continue to serve devotees in the preparatory stages as well as in The Way of Radical Intuition, in order to quicken their Awakening and Transformation in God. He may have contact with one or more individuals who will act as terminals of Grace for the sake of this ultimate demonstration, but he feels he may be alone in God from this point. The Process itself has been revealed to him, and the Divine is directly Present to him as Grace for the sake of this Sacrifice. And so Bubba does not know if there will be help through any higher beings in gross or subtle form for the sake of this future work. He has had contact, in recent days, with at least one entity in subtle form that has aided the secondary purification of the subtle mechanisms of the gross body. But he has had no contact with any being in a Transfigured state – although this may possibly occur in the future. ” Demonstration

The Seventh Stage Transfiguration
and Transformation Stage

“The process that involves me now
is the passage through the dissolution of certain factors of
the body-mind. This process has already occurred
fundamentally in my case, but there is a certain ordinary
dimension of the body-mind that has remained intact during
these years so that I could have a medium through which to
work. But during the last year and a half a kind of bodily
and mental crucifixion has been occurring, a transformation
of the body, in which I have less and less capacity to enter
into casual relations with people.”

more questions about the difference between these two

The Vedanta Temple Event initiated
the Teaching Work or the Work of submission to others. The
Death Event brought an end to the process of submission to
others. It initiated that time of my Work in which it is
required, obligatory, that people enter into the traditional
Guru-devotee relationship, that they make their submission,
that they respond to me and no longer require me to respond
to them as I did as Teacher. All that submission to others
became summarized in the Death Event in 1986 and was brought
to an end there, and now a new Work continues as a
potential, if people will make use of my Company. If they
will not, there is no Work going on. It is not that there
was one kind of Enlightenment in 1970 and another kind of

Names, and the principal Name by which He was to be called.
Though it is no longer used as His primary Name, “Da
Avabhasa” is still an appropriate reference to Avatar

Only By Me Revelation
– The
First and Only Seventh Stage Realizer –
Promised God Man

“By His Divine Re-Awakening and
Work, He had brought into the earth and the conditional
realm altogether the Spiritual Powers and Divine Grace that
now makes possible the seventh stage Awakening in the case
of all others”


“The Avataric Great Sage, Adi Da
Samraj then said, “Understand further, I am not the first
seventh stage Adept in the sense that there will be other
seventh stage Adepts. The great Work that I do is once and
for all time. There will be other seventh stage Realizers”

1994 – Adi Da

On September 7, 1994, Adi Da Samraj
experiences another Yogic Event that signifies His Divine
Work has come to Completeness. (Santosha Event)

“Avatar Adi Da later confirmed that
this was true. September 7, 1994, He said, had marked the
most important transition in His Life since January 11, 1986
— the Yogic Establishment of His Divine
Self-“Emergence”. It was the Completing, He said, of His
“Effort” to Descend (or “Emerge”) in the cosmic Domain, an
“Effort” that had been going on since His birth. Although
January 11, 1986, was the most significant moment in that
Process, the moment when His Divine Being had combined with
His human body most perfectly, He acknowledged that He felt
a further resolution had occurred. His Body was even more
“refined” by the potency of His Divine Spiritual Presence,
and He did not feel any remaining movement to Submit to His
devotees in order to serve them”.

“Adi Da” is the principal
Name of Avatar Adi Da Samraj.

The Name “Adi Da” was
Revealed to Adi Da (then known as “Da Avabhasa”)
on October 7, 1994. “Adi” is a Sanskrit word that
means “first”, “primordial”,
“source”. It is additionally defined as
“primary”, “beginning”,
“commencement”, and “first

In early 1997, Adi Da Samraj
experiences a profound physical ordeal that corresponds to
the creation of a new Text, Hridaya Rosary.


2000 Ruchira Dham Event – April 12, 2000, on
Lopez Island (in Washington State).

“In some sense, I – As I Am –
First Appeared here in the year 2000.”

In some sense, I-As-I-Am – Was only
“on the way” to here before the Ruchira Dham

“The Universally Consequential
Divine Avataric Event of My divine Translation and
Re-Emergence” here and everywhere in the cosmic domain,


He later Revealed that, in that
event, He had completed the “opposite” of His Yogic Descent
in 1986 — while His Avataric Divine Self-“Emergence”
was the completion of His Descent into the realm of
conditional beings, the Lopez Island Event was His Direct
Ascent, to the Primal “Bright” Spiritual Self-Condition of
Conscious Light

April 16, 2000

“I cannot describe My Blessing
Work in a way that makes all that much sense to you except
to say that I actually participate, all the time, in the
events and circumstances that potentially effect the global
possibilities of mankind’s survival but I do so outside
of the physical.”


2007Failure of
Submission Work

“To rightly understand My Divine
Avataric Life and Work, it is essential to understand
This Change in My Own Approach and My Own

“In the years after January 11,
1986, there was no significant response to Me. Indeed, I was
required to endure the demonstration of implacable
indifference in human beings, to the point that My Impulse
to continue Working in the Manner of Self-Submission utterly
Vanished — most conclusively, on July 10, 2007. “
Self-Submission-Time Has Come To An End


“Until I am
whole-bodily-responsively devotionally recognized,
the ego sees itself in Me, and
sees the “world” on Me (or in
My Person),
as in a mirror. All of My
years of Divine Avataric Self-Submission-Work have been a
Sign of how I have been approached as a Mirror—rather
than being approached As I Am. Nevertheless, I have Always
Been Revealing Myself As I Am—Stimulating the surface
of the water in order to Awaken “Narcissus” to the
Water Itself, to the Nature, Condition, and State of My Own
Self Confession


“There was no more Vehicle of
there was the Vehicle of the body That could still Suffer
everyone, but htere was no Vehicle of
