Adi Da Samraj
The "Bright" Incarnate
My Revelation is not merely to be believed. It is to be received, experienced, entirely known, confirmed, proven, tangibly demonstrated.

Adi Da Samraj was born "Franklin Albert Jones" on November 3, 1939, in Long Island, New York. But we cannot begin to comprehend His Life by merely listing the conventional "facts" that we attach to a human lifetime.
Ordinarily, a human birth is the result of an immeasurable chain of causes and effects, or what Eastern spiritual traditions call "karma".
Such a born lifetime is, in a sense, helpless — the result of a vast and essentially unfathomable process. This is not something an ordinary individual can consciously influence.
A Conscious, Intentional Birth
Avatar Adi Da's Coming into the world was not such a "helpless" incarnation. His birth was an event of utterly unprecedented magnitude.
It was the intentional Incarnation, in human form, of the Divine Reality Itself — the timeless Consciousness that is the Source and the very Life of all that exists.
Before His birth, Adi Da consciously associated Himself with the embryonic physical being that was to be born to His mother and father. Thus, He never helplessly identified with His human vehicle. Rather, He always maintained association with His physical body by a Divine process of Radiating into the body from Above.
Although He is manifested in a human body, Avatar Adi Da Samraj is not an ordinary human being — and not even an extraordinary human being. Adi Da Samraj is the Divine Avatar, the Perfect Descent of the Divine into our human midst.
From the moment of His birth, Avatar Adi Da Samraj existed in an unspeakable Condition of constant Radiance and Joy.
And when, as an infant, He acquired the capability of language, He gave a name to this Condition. He called it simply "the 'Bright'". His naming of the "Bright" was the beginning of His Work of Teaching the Truth about Reality.
