Situated in the heart of Kauai Island, underneath the sacred mountain of Waialeale (pronounced “wy-ah-lay-AH-lay”), Da Love-Ananda Mahal is a pristine sacred sanctuary spiritually empowered by His Divine Presence, Adi Da Samraj.
Adi Da Samraj first moved to Da Love-Ananda Mahal in 1979, using it as a set-apart place to do His unique Work. From 1979-2003, Adi Da spent frequent extended time at Da Love-Ananda Mahal, engaging in periods of consideration, writing, discoursing, and sitting with those who came to Him. These periods were documented in such books as The Dreaded Gom-Boo, Hridaya Rosary: The Four Thorns of Heart-Instruction, and the forthcoming publication of The Overnight Revelation of Conscious Light.
Traditionally, devotees provided Spiritual Masters with set-apart places where the Masters were free to do their Spiritual Work in an appropriate and secluded circumstance. These places became Spiritually Empowered through the Master’s Presence and Intention. In this manner, devotees of Adi Da provided places that were set apart for Him to do His Teaching and Blessing-Work — as well as to receive those devotees who came on pilgrimage retreat to receive the Blessing of His physical Company.
Da Love-Ananda Mahal is such a place, imbued with the Blessing Divine Presence of Adi Da Samraj, from the many years that He spent here. Because of this, Da Love-Ananda Mahal will be served in perpetuity, maintained as a place of sacred invocation, and spiritual retreat for present and future generations of devotees of Adi Da Samraj.
