Avatar Adi Da Samraj is a Douchebag and so is John Forth

I got an email from someone recently that had an excerpt (and by “excerpt” I mean “long ass drivel-ridden tirade”) of a speech by a guy named Avatar Adi Da Samraj. This weirdo has been around for a long time and has had a bit of a, shall we say, “mixed” past.

He was born Frank Jones in Queens, N.Y. in November 1939. Yes, you read that correctly: Frank Jones. If you’d like to lend an air of new-agey credibility to your retardedness, just throw around a name like “Adi Da Samraj” and watch the hippies crawl out from under their Indian macramé blankets. Truth be told, he used several silly-ass names through the years, all of which can be found on the Wikipedia entry for Frank.

From his “about Adi Da Samraj” page on his site, we get this little pearl of knowledge: "Throughout His first two years, He existed in a state of constant Spiritual Radiance and Joy, without any sense of separate self (or ego)."

So he never cried, moaned, had a shit-cramp, or was in pain from a non-delivered burp? Who was there to check this out? Is this just hearsay? I think so and anyone who believes that this man is more than that is delusional and in need of a fairly serious "skeptical awakening".

Oh, and this is hilarious: "...in a specific moment at two years of age, He spontaneously chose to 'become' a human ego, to become the human child that His parents had named 'Franklin Jones'". Nice dishing off of the responsibility for the "Frank Jones" name. And again, how do we know that when this dipshit was two, he decided to become a human? Did we have a note-taking psychologist there? Perhaps he was friends with The Great Gazoo who then passed the knowledge on to Fred Flintstone (now known as "Avatar Deedle Von Mastonhess").

While he was studying, "He experienced every form of mystical or transcendental attainment that has ever been sought by human beings, in the East or West." He has no actual knowledge of the world around him, but he knows mystical, baby.

Speaking of mystical, I have to get to the "talk" I was emailed by John Forth - a devotee of said fake living diety who has contacted others in attempts to get his boy's word out. The peice is called "Space-Time is Love-Bliss", so you can guess how much sense it fucking made.
Not too deep in, I was treated to this phrase:
Matter is Light—not merely ordinary light (which can even change its speed, or fly about and be reflected on surfaces, and so on), but Fundamental Light, Light Itself, Which Is inherently Indivisible, inherently Unbroken.

I think physicists would be interested in the "ordinary light changing its speed" part of that. I've read this "sentence" several times and I still have no friggin' idea what it's supposed to say. My bachelor's degree in English is failing me.

I'll spare everyone the complete drivel that this descends into because reading it just makes you start to drool and your head hurt, but I do want to show the token "atheists are bad/misled" part:
Anti-religionists, atheists, and so forth, generally do not talk seriously about great esoteric religion and Spirituality. They merely take delight in creating verbal conflict with "other" (or science-challenged) human beings. The reason why they seem to have so much energy for promoting their anti-religious (and inherently "dark" and hopeless) point of view is that, in doing so, they presume they are addressing (and academically "sporting" with) non-scientists, even exoteric religionists, people with non-scientific (and scientifically insupportable, and, therefore, it is presumed, irrational) views, and so forth. Like headstrong young college students, they derive great enjoyment from denying (and even officially" anathematizing) absolutely everything that the pious religionists merely believe. But, outside the circumstance of that adolescent debate, where would they get any energy for denying Reality Itself, in Its Greatness? Any fool can delight in abusive conflicts with public religionists of the ordinary and exoteric kind. But what about Truth? What about the Great Matter—Reality Itself?

Need an Advil yet?

He seems pretty against the "dark and hopeless" views of atheists and other non-religious people even though he provides nothing besides idiotic rantings and fluffy tripe. He is, as I told John in an email, a low-rent Deepak Chopra. He now lives in Fiji with some suckers who follow him and think he's god incarnate. It goes without saying that I don't believe that, but look at the guy:
Adi Da Douchebag
How can anyone think this dickhole is god?! He looks like Jimmy Buffet and Anthony Hopkins had a kid, for chrissake. I can only hope this turns into a suicide cult. Dumbasses.

Boy, this guy is full of himself. Doesn't he realize that he's the one in denial of reality. If he isn't, he should get to work on finding evidence of his correctitude.

Shame on you, sir!

When has Adi ever nibbled on sponge cake while watching the sun bake? Did Adi waste away in Margaritaville? Did Mr. Samraj search for the most holy lost shaker of salt? Nay to all three (four if you take the cake/bake as two things).

You defame the good name of Jimmy Buffet, the true prophet of the one god when you compare him to Adi Da Samraj.

I humbly apologize to Mr. Buffett and hang my head in shame.

No biggie, I'm not orthodox.

Just make sure to spill a little of your next margarita on the ground, for the fallen.

Ok, Ron. And thanks for keeping current. Ass.

"I think physicists would be interested in the "ordinary light changing its speed" part of that. "

The speed of light is only constant in a vacuum. Passing through any other medium, such as air, water, glass, or plastic, it slows down, sometimes considerably. Any physics student knows this. In fact, using tricks, physicists can slow light down to ornidary car traffic speeds:

so the guy is at least smarter than you.

Yeah, I'm sure that's exactly what he meant. I'm sure.

Thanks for your input though. I'm sure that physicists would enjoy your description of their work as doing "tricks".

Obviously you don't know many physicists. They use that word all the time. Most have a sense of humor. You could learn from them.

And yeah, it's pretty obvious Da meant this. The guy at least went to college, and read a lot. Do you?

 
At 4/10/13 7:11 pm, Blogger Heathen Mike said...

"Da"? What are you, his homie? Are you seriously saying that this guy is an intellectual worthy of attention? It's not how much you read, it's whether or not you're reading nonsense. Perhaps you and "Da" can start up a reading group/drum circle and continue to not invite me. That'd be awesome.

 
At 6/10/13 2:42 am, Blogger Broken Yogi said...

Dude, I've long been one of Da's biggest critics, but he's way smarter than you're giving him credit for. He may be delusional about himself, but he's way smarter than you, that's for sure. You can't even admit when you're wrong about basic physics, how embarrassing is that?

And besides, if he's not worth your attention, why are you giving him any?

 
At 6/10/13 5:30 pm, Blogger Heathen Mike said...

I gave him 'attention' in 2006, if you'd notice. Also, if 'attention' is a blog post read by approximately 9 people, then great.
Sure, light changes speed when not in a vacuum. Wonderful. I made a mistake by suggesting that it doesn't - all apologies. If you really think that: "Matter is Light—not merely ordinary light (which can even change its speed, or fly about and be reflected on surfaces, and so on), but Fundamental Light, Light Itself, Which Is inherently Indivisible, inherently Unbroken." is meant to convey a serious physics point, then knock yourself out. I'm pretty much finished responding to posts from seven years ago.
But thanks for reading, I guess.

Your such a creepy idiot, wake-up
your so dark, if any light was to come upon you would run in fear !

Love Ron,

"You're". In both cases. Use all that "light" you're bathing in to illuminate a book on basic grammar.

You are right and a wonderful speller ! but you're still completely wrong about Adi Da !

Love Ron.

You're still terrible at grammar and I doubt very much that I'm wrong about Frank. But hey man, live your life. I have my opinion and you have yours; we'll see who's right over time.

Wow. My irony meter melted and then boiled away into steam.

hey mike, i've just come out of a relationship with a guy who is devoted to adi da ... he turned out to be a fucking lunatic. i just stumbled across your blog and i know it's years old now but i wanted to say that i totally dig your writing style and to also thank you for the laughs and your insights. agreed, adi da is a supreme douchebag.

Hey there,
Glad things are getting better and the lunatic is out of your life. Also happy to provide some smiles for you! You have yourself a great day and I'll try to write some more :)
