This four-day retreat will be filled with the revelation and
spiritual presence of Adi Da Samraj. The theme of this retreat
- "The Universal Gift of Reality Itself: A New Paadigm
for Living" - coincides with the Adidam Celebration of
Establishment of the "Radical" Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam, which commemorates the start of Adi Da's Teaching-Work
on April 25, 1972, in Los Angeles, California. On this retreat,
we will explore the remarkable story of the Spiritual Unfolding
of Adi Da's Teaching-Work in the lives and hearts of devotees
around the world.
The retreat will also include:
Sacred Sightings of Adi Da — Rare videos
of Adi Da granting His Silent Spiritual Blessing to all and
speaking about the True Condition of all beings, which is
Prior Unity, Perfect Freedom, and Divine Happiness.

Location: The European Danda
retreat will be held at the European Danda, our Spiritually-Empowered
Center in the south of the Netherlands. The Danda is the Spiritually
Empowered Seat of Adi Da's Blessing in Europe. The Danda is a
former monastery — a quiet place, and a place where Adi
Da twice resided. It houses the the largest
collection in the world of Adi Da’s Transcendental Realist Art,
and art tours and presentations will be offered during the retreat.
Filled with Adi Da’s Presence, it is a perfect location to retire
from worldly stress and distraction to sink into the deepest feeling
of Reality Itself.

Testimonial from a participant in a recent retreat at the European Danda:
Beloved Adi Da,
I’m very thankful for the retreat in the Danda. It is
a very special place, has Big Energy and has touched my
heart deeply. I would like to say thank You for coming
and staying here, for allowing me to see and feel all
the devotees that You Love. I will go with strong energy
and love and I try ever and ever to give it back to You.
