Visionary Experience Does Not Mean Anything

ADI DA SAMRAJ: The Yogic Samadhis are essentially trance conditions. They are remarkable mental states, but they are temporary and only forms of “experience”. Their content might be sublime, but they must be understood. Beyond such phenomena there is the Realization of Truth.

In a certain period of My “Sadhana-Years”-Submission, I passed through a period of trance Samadhis, and occasionally (even now) some manifestation of this kind occurs.

When they first occurred years ago, they were very delicious, very interesting. They were the beginning of Yogic phenomena — visions, movements into other planes, seeing fantastic “worlds”, moving out of this realm of conscious awareness altogether.

However, it became very clear that not anything was gained by the “experience” itself, not anything was ultimately changed. Rather, a kind of craving developed as a result of these phenomena. Thus, it was very significant for Me to pass though these events, because they are the goals of the Yogic search — but I saw that they made no difference whatsoever.

In the highest states of Yogic Samadhi, I realized that I was in exactly the same condition as I was in any other ordinary state. In seeing the so-called “ultimate Divine” visions, I realized I was in the same state that I was when walking down the street looking at a building.

Such visionary “experience” does not mean anything. 
The seventh stage Realizer does not care whether he or she has a vision. 
In fact, visions are like flies. 
They are an annoyance when you live and function in the Condition of Truth.

That is why I am Born in the human plane — to Communicate the Way of Truth from the Disposition of Truth. All others communicate from the “point of view” of phenomena of various kinds — secondary illuminations, “experiences”. The Truth has nothing whatsoever to do with such phenomena.
