Da Guru Purnima Invocation, 2017, read in Land Bridge Pavilion, July 9

 

–To Beloved Bhagavan Adi Da, the Divine and Absolute Person of Love, we bow down

–To He Who has loved us and held us tight, and Who has straightened and purified us with His Fierce Sword of compassion, burning the brush of our egoity, and Who drives us deeper than our bodies and minds in His State of Silent Radiant Bliss, to that Divine Person, we bow down

–To He Who has endured our falsity, ordinariness, our disrespect and immaturity with a Staying Power and sense of humor unmatched by any Adept in history, to that Wounded Lover of Humankind, the only One Who Stood up for everyone, we bow down

–To He Whose Ecstasy and Divine Self-Confession brought the Living God Present before our eyes.  To He who Proclaimed that laughter is the only Suitable Mantra, whose very Name is that Giving, DA, that is the Radiant Prasad that is the Source of the universe, to that World-Friend, we bow down

–To All of the God-Realized Baptizers and World Teachers of Humankind, we bow down

–To Robert the Cat, Swami Rudrananda, Swami Muktananda, Swami Prakashananda, the Divine

Nityananda, Sri Rang Avadhoot, Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi and other Awakened servants of our Divine Guru Adi Da Samraj, we bow down

–To all heart-broken devotees and true worshippers of the One God in all His or Her Forms, we bow down

–To all suffering in this place of darkness and confusion, subject to natural fires and cyclones and natural disasters, and human intolerance and hurtful divisiveness, fundamentalism and cultism and gross materialism, we bow down in love and empathy and blessing,

–Surrendered at the Heart Place, all Beings in all worlds pray to the Infinite and Unknowable Grace of the Eternal Divine Person

–Immersed in the Infinite All-Pervading Force Field of Divine Life, free of fear, open-eyed, God-Confessed and surrendered, having bowed down through the Grace of the Divine Guru, we enter into relationship with the Heart Supreme.

–Oh Beloved Da, skilled in Discrimination, endowed with Compassion, Supreme Teacher, Bright-Heart—to that Realized One, the Master of our body-minds, we bring our attention
