Spiritual Master —
The highest human potential is God-Realization, the complete awakening
from this "dream" of limited existence, as
One in Whose Consciousness the dream is arising. And the way to perfect
Realization of God is through a moment-to-moment process of communing
with God, by feeling God and self, and feeling beyond self to God.
But how does one find and feel God for
All the wisdom traditions of humankind point to a single answer: we
locate God (either partially or fully) through the Transmission of
a Spiritual Master. So the "how" of Realizing God actually has a simple
answer: find a genuine Spiritual Master who transmits the Divine Reality,
and become a devotee of His or Her Spiritual Transmission.

the right way can change the course of your life.
settle for believing in God, or even for some "spiritual experiences"
now and then, when the tangible, ego-melting, suffering-dissolving
Revelation of Real God, pervading, washing, and dissolving "you" again
and again (through a lifetime of Spiritual practice), would utterly
transform your life, and fulfill your heart's otherwise unendingly
unfulfilled desire for perfect happiness?
The COTEDA Institute works toward creating global progress, global
agreements, and global harmony on the basis of three spiritual principles:
COTEDA principle: COoperation through Transcending Ego
and through Divine Assistance
TOTEDA principle: TOlerance through Transcending Ego
and through Divine Assistance
PECOTO principle: PEace (and global accord altogether)
through self-transcending, spiritually aided COoperation and TOlerance

Da Samraj has appeared like a Storm of fresh rain in a Spiritual
desert, offering all the opportunity for Perfect Happiness through
Divine Realization, by practicing the Way of Adidam.
Like all the great and true Spiritual Masters — from Gautama Buddha
to Jesus of Nazareth — what Adi
Da has brought into the world is not merely a new belief system
or another set of spiritual techniques or religious rituals. Like
the great Spiritual Masters of past ages, Adi
Da Samraj's primary offering is an extraordinary and very tangible
Spiritual Transmission, that directly Communicates the Greater Reality
all the great wisdom traditions around the world and throughout history
offer a wide variety of views on (and experiences of) the nature of
the Greater Reality and human potential in the context of the Greater
Reality. On this site, we make sense of and compare the differing
views. We place particular emphasis on the views of materialism, esoteric
spirituality, and exoteric religion.
Institute for Real God
The Institute for Real God was created for the purpose of
making genuine spirituality and spiritual practice accessible to
as many people as possible. It offers a genuine alternative to the
most familiar options of our time:
religion We emphasize learning to find God for
real, rather than settling for belief only, as members of many
traditional religions are taught to do.
"do it yourself" spirituality Our
focus is on practices that are systematic in bringing about genuine
Spiritual Realization. This, rather than the piecemeal practices
and experiences one often finds in many "New Age" circles.
Unlike scientific materialism, we do not exclude the spiritual
or the subjective from our study of Reality. We focus on spiritual
practices that are based on the full nature of Reality and that
can thus identify and realize the greatest human potential.
The requirements that must be met to fulfill the
Spiritual Way cannot be changed
they have been and will always be great
but the Way Itself
been streamlined: the Great Path of Return (which takes evolutionary
time) has been replaced by the Way of God Present (in which, with
Great Help, God can be Realized even in a single lifetime). 1-2-3
GOD outlines the necessary three steps.
