Dan HamburgDan Hamburg is a former member of the U.S. Congress, where he authored the Headwaters Forest Act, a bill that passed the House overwhelmingly. In 1998, he was the Green Party candidate for Governor of California. He is currently the Executive Director of VOTE (Voice of The Environment), a foundation dedicated to creating a progressive political coalition that can challenge the current two-party "duopoly."

Adi Da Samraj is the transcendent and transformational Being of our era. He is the Good News Who has come as an answer to our prayers. . . .

Avatar Adi Da's insistence on the primary importance of human-scale cooperative community as the basic unit of the successful state is bold and refreshing. Each of us bears responsibility to practice, moment to moment, the ego-surrendering sacrifice that makes life sacred at the community level, peaceful on the level of interaction among nations.

Adi Da's Teaching is neither utopian nor dissociative; it is simply a radically new human politics based on the Truth. Even as He transcends the common bonds of the human, Adi Da remains the Great Teacher of the pragmatic human situation. How incredibly blessed that He is here at the moment when we need Him most!

The Good Enough VillageThe Good Enough Village: A Village Without Walls The "Good Enough Village" is an experimental community whose vision is to inspire by their demonstration and be inspired by other culturally creative people in building healing, transforming, and self-empowering communities that, in all their diversity, can grace the world with hope and sustain a common faith in humanity. The "Good Enough Village" culture is continuously developing nourishment for its members' souls, and the means for expressing their hearts in ritual, music, play, poetry, art, and dance. The community as a whole has studied and been inspired by Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj's teachings for many years, particularly His Teachings on the (difficult) aspects of true community life.

Barbara Marx-HubbardBarbara Marx-Hubbard the founder and executive director of The Foundation for Conscious Evolution. Called by Buckminster Fuller "the best informed human on the concept of futurism", Barbara is an internationally known lecturer and the author of several books, including her most recent Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential. She is the co-creator of an intentional cooperative community in Santa Barbara.

I recognize the God-Presence Incarnate in Adi Da Samraj as whole and full and complete. . . .

Our goal as a community is to develop the processes, tools, and templates that any such community could use anywhere in the world. What I gained from Adi Da's instruction about such "cultural reformation" is that 1) you have to overcome egoity and 2) you have to create human-scale cooperative community. . . . We are a real example of how such a community can benefit from Adi Da's Wisdom and Blessing.
