Beyond The Trap of Experience

People tend to value good experiences and shun the bad ones. During this Discourse, Avatar Adi Da Samraj reveals—which comes as a surprise to many—that all experience is inherently binding. Positive or negative—it doesn't make any difference!

Not stopping there, He also gives specific descriptions of what must be discovered in either case:

• Positive: “You must identify your suffering even in your apparent enjoyment.”
• Negative: “You must find your freedom, even in your pain and apparent suffering.”

Watch this DVD to receive Avatar Adi Da's full Revelation on how to move beyond the trap of experience while also enjoying His generous and often humorous responses to questions from four of His devotees.

His Divine Presence, Avatar Adi Da
(on the evening this Discourse was given)

Appreciate the inherently binding nature of “experience”, and how you are constantly becoming trapped in a corner made of your own “experience”—“experience” that you may regard to be positive, or “experience” that you may regard to be negative. It does not make any “difference”.

You are constantly being ruled by the faculties in terms of their conditional “experience” and apparatus. And the reason for that, it must be understood in due course, and most fundamentally, is due to your own causation. It is the “self”-contraction
