Love-Ananda Mahal Sanctuary, with Mt. Waialeale in the background
afternoon in September of 1999, while residing at Da
Love-Ananda Mahal Sanctuary on Kauai, Adi Da was sitting on the deck behind
His house with a few devotees. He had been gazing out towards Mt. Waialeale
in the distance when He began to speak.
Bhagavan Adi Da told the devotees
there with Him that He had been working with Mt. Waialeale since 1978, when He
first stepped foot onto Da Love-Ananda Mahal. Adi Da made a gesture towards the
mountain and said, "The mountain is as holy as Arunachala or any other mountain
Adi Da went on to describe how the
Wailua River, which flows behind His house, begins at the very top of Mt. Waialeale,
said to be the wettest spot on earth because of the average amount of rainfall.
The year-round rains gather in the crater and then overflow down the mountain
to merge into the Wailua. From there the water begins its journey down to the
estuary, where the river merges with the sea.
Adi Da explained how traditionally
the Hawaiians had regarded Mt. Waialeale, the Wailua River, and the land of Kauai
to be sacred — and that He Himself had been involved in a great Puja on the island of Kauai, which involved His working
directly with the natural and supernatural forces there.
There is a old
heiau (Hawaiian temple) located on the beach where the Wailua River enters the
Pacific Ocean, Bhagavan Adi Da said. He then pointed out that His house was located
on the Wailua River at the very mid-point, the heart center, between Mt. Waialeale
and the sea. The river, which runs directly behind His house, is the conduit between
the mountain and the sea.
It was a clear, cloudless Hawaiian afternoon
as Beloved Bhagavan began to speak about the abundance of water surrounding His
house at Da Love-Ananda Mahal. He spoke about the abundance of moisture in the
air, how the island of Kauai is surrounded by water, how the river circles around
His Sanctuary there, and how Mt. Waialeale is the wettest spot on earth. Bhagavan
Adi Da spoke about the True Nature of His Divine Presence and Siddhi being associated
with the element of water.
And then, without warning, under clear blue
skies, it began to rain so suddenly and so forcefully that everyone was drenched
in a matter of seconds.
With the rain pouring down and the river rushing behind His house,
Beloved Bhagavan moved everyone into a simple shed nearby that
was being used for storage. With devotees huddled around Him,
He spoke further about the Siddhi of His Divine Person, Presence,
and State as the Radiant Water of Consciousness Itself.
All mere ideas are as an illusion of weather —
or a "localization" of separately "objectified" (or merely
apparent) natural water. Reality Itself Is As An Absolute
or A Perfect Universalization of The Inherently Perfect
(and Perfectly Indivisible) Self-Unity of The One True Water
Itself. The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of
Adidam Is The Absolute Rain of Reality Itself.
