about youth_fellowship

"Some people live to be only four years old, or even two years old. For some people two years may be their whole life. Such people should be ecstatic, then, for two years, three, four, five, ten years, fifty years; a hundred years."

—Avatar Adi Da Samraj

Adidam Youth Fellowship

Everyone needs the support of peers, and this is certainly true of children and young people who are involved in learning about how to have a real and tangible relationship to the Divine Master, Adi Da Samraj.

Young people up to age 21 are offered a special form of relationship to Avatar Adi Da—the Adidam Youth Fellowship. The Adidam Youth Fellowship has two membership bodies:

Friend of the Adidam Youth Fellowship
As a friend of the Adidam Youth Fellowship, you are invited into a culture of other young people who want to learn more about Avatar Adi Da Samraj and the Way of Adidam. You are invited to special retreat events from time to time, to consider more about Avatar Adi Da and to meet other young devotees.

Practicing member of the Adidam Youth Fellowship
If you feel that Adi Da Samraj is your Divine Heart-Master, you may apply to become a formally practicing member of the Adidam Youth Fellowship. On the basis of this recognition, you are certain of your wish to enter into a direct, ego-surrendering devotional relationship with Him as the means of true Happiness. Practicing members of the Youth Fellowship embrace a series of disciplines that are similar to (but simpler than) the practices engaged by formal adult practitioners of Adidam. Members enjoy retreats with their peers, where they can deepen their practice together.
