Beyond Believing

Chris Tong and his wife   When I talk to people about my wife, I never say, "I believe my wife exists!". I don't have to: I know she exists. But curiously, that is the most common thing we say about God: "I believe in God". As a "believer", how certain are you of the reality of God? Why settle for just believing in God, when the tangible experience of God would transform your life?

The Offering of Perfect Happiness

All the great Spiritual Masters have been Transmission Masters: they literally transmit their Spiritual Realization to their devotees, communicating a state that is happier than the usual worldly destiny. The greatest of all Spiritual Masters are the Divine Incarnations, those rare occasions when the Divine appears in its Own "dream" as a character, for the sake of Transmitting the greatest Realization of all the state of Perfect and Eternal Happiness which coincides with awakening from the Dream. In this article, we make the case that Avatar Adi Da Samraj is just such a rare Divine Incarnation, here to remind all of their greatest possible destiny, and to awaken all beings to that Divine State of Perfect Happiness.

Beyond Globalization: May the Best Culture Win!

  As the great spiritual master Adi Da Samraj has emphasized, cooperation and tolerance are the necessary foundation stones for a new world order. To fully understand their importance, we first examine the old "cold war" world order and the current "post-cold war" world order, and track the consequences of the absence of one or both of these foundation stones, and the implications for the future. Globalization is not an end unto itself. At best, it is the "ground" in which, practicing cooperation and tolerance, we can "plant" and "grow" new cultures.
