Special Events > Da Retreat at the Mountain Of Attention, Jan. 26-28, 2018

Da Love-Ananda Leela Retreat

Now, and forever hereafter, My devotees must rightly understand and freely tell This Divine Avataric Leela of Me — so that everyone will, also, understand What the Process of My Divine Avataric Incarnation here has Been, Why It has Been What It has Been, What Its Meaning Is, What Its Great and Perfect Significance Is, and How It Is Proof and Demonstration of the Divine Avataric Intervention on Earth.

His Divine Presence, Avatar Adi Da Samraj
from The Aletheon

Come to the Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
for a Special Retreat Celebrating
The Love-Ananda Leela


Dates:
Friday, January 26, 2017 - Sunday, January 28, 2017
Place:
the Mountain Of Attention, Lake County, California


This event is for 1C and 2C devotees only.
(Some of the other celebrations each year are open to the public as well.)

 

You are warmly invited to consider the devotional practice of the telling of Beloved Adi Da's Divine Avataric Leelas. The intention of this retreat is to take Leela-telling to a new depth in participation with Bhagavan Adi Da. There will be the opportunity to find your voice in an intimate setting with other devotees and become open-throated in your feeling-confession of our Beloved Master in your life of practice.

This special retreat will include the following means of Invoking Bhagavan and magnifying the practice of turning the faculties to His Divine Person:

  • Listening to Spoken Communications from Bhagavan Adi Da about telling the Leelas of His Divine Avataric Life and Work.
  • Listening to and considering Bhagavan's Spoken Communications about the necessity and process of telling the Leelas of the Submission Years.
  • Discussion of the profound Miracles and supernormal happenings of Beloved's Divine Avataric Person.
  • Understanding the difference between a Divine Avataric Leela and a personal testimonial.
  • Developing a ten-minute Leela based on Bhagavan's Principles and Guidelines, practicing telling it, and receiving feedback from other devotees participating in the retreat.

The retreat will include engaging the daily cycle of contemplation and sacramental worship of Bhagavan, watching Avataric Discourses, listening to recitations, chanting, and study of Bhagavan's Word about Leela-telling from the Adi Da Samrajashram Magazine.

Lynne Wagner is the facilitator of this retreat.
