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

The Perfect Knowledge 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 Focused on
Adi Da's Offering of "Perfect Knowledge"


Dates:
Friday,March 16, 2017 - Sunday, March 18, 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.)

 

"Perfect Knowledge", as given by Adi Da Samraj, is not any kind of conventional knowing via the mind or the body. It is, rather, tacit and direct apprehension that occurs prior to the ego-position. "Perfect Knowledge" is a searchless "Knowing" that exists prior to any form of thinking, a "Locating" of the Reality-Position, which is revealed as one's true and only Position when the illusion of "I"-and-"other" drops away.

Because "Perfect Knowledge" of Reality cannot come about through any exercise of mind or of body, it must be directly transmitted from the Source. Transmitting "Perfect Knowledge" is one of Avatar Adi Das Divine Functions and Gifts. From early in their practice of the Way of Adidam, devotees of Adi Da Samraj practice tacitly "Locating" the "Perfect Knowledge" of Reality.

The practice of "Perfect Knowledge" is not a technique or means for seeking, but occurs in direct relationship with Adi Da and is founded in devotional recognition of Him as the Revelation of Reality Itself.

We often listen to the Five Reality-Teachings and "The Teaching Manual of Perfect Summaries" in the context of our daily life and practice. Engaging and considering the listening practice of "Perfect Knowledge" while on retreat provides an opportunity to take our participation to a new depth. We will consider how "Perfect Knowledge" is alive in our practice even from the beginning.

This retreat is for all 1C and 2C devotees who wish to deepen their participation in this Gift. The retreat is also recommended for anyone interested in transitioning to the First Congregation. We will have a special session at the end to consider this with those who are interested.
