In this online course we will study The Avatar of What Is. This book by Carolyn Lee gives a wonderful introduction to the life and work of Adi Da Samraj, from His birth to the present, and brings an understanding of the uniqueness of Adi Da within the context of the great tradition of human wisdom and spirituality.
The course consists of four online sessions via Zoom. Each session covers two chapters of the book, and we consider questions, show videos of Adi Da Samraj and tell stories related to the subject of the evening. The course will be guided by Rénée Pierrot and Bart Lohr, two long-time devotees of Adi Da Samraj who are also hosting the “Where is Happiness” retreats at the European Danda. Since we have participants from different countries the course will be in English, but we can assist in Dutch, French, German and Spanish.
For the course you will need a copy of The Avatar of What Is. The book is available at Amazon or Bol.com as paperback or e-book. (Important: If you buy the paperback please get the 2018 or 2019 edition – not the 2007 edition). For the UK and Ireland you can order the paperback edition from the UK Adidam webshop. For USA and Canada, the book can be ordered via the Dawn Horse Press.

A next-step course after the Da Avatar Course.
Having learned more about the Life and Teaching of Avatar Adi Da Samraj, we will investigate in this course what egoless spiritual practice means for our daily life. What is spiritual practice if it is not about seeking, improving yourself or attaining anything for a presumed separate persona? We will study the book The Gift of the Eight-Part Admonition which gives a good introduction to the basic principles of the spiritual practice Adi Da Offers to His devotees. The course consists of four bi-weekly online sessions via Zoom. In between the sessions you are invited and encouraged to experiment with the practices we consider in the sessions.
For this course you will need a copy of The Gift of the Eight-Part Admonition. For the UK and Ireland, the book can be ordered from the UK Adidam webshop. For countries on the European continent, you can order the book by sending an email to email@example.com. For USA and Canada, the book can be ordered via the Dawn Horse Press.
