A sister, Joanne, was born when he was eight years old. He served as an acolyte in the Lutheran church during his adolescence and aspired to be a minister, though after leaving for college in the autumn of  he expressed doubts about the religion to his Lutheran pastor.
He graduated in with a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Columbia University and went on to complete a master's degree in English literature at Stanford University in While she worked to support them,  he wrote, took drugs, meditated informally, and studied books on hermeticism in order to make sense of his experiences.
Having studied a number of spiritual traditions, including "The Work" of G. Rudi taught an eclectic blend of techniques he called "kundalini yoga"   having no literal relationship to the Indian tradition by that name. Feeling that he needed better grounding, in Rudi insisted that he marry Nina, find steady employment, lose weight, end his drug use, and begin preparatory studies to enter the seminary.
Taken to a hospital emergency room, a psychiatrist diagnosed it as an anxiety attack. He did so for four days in April Swami Muktananda encouraged Adi Da to end his studies with Rudi and study with himself directly.
He then returned to India for a month-long visit in earlyduring which Swami Muktananda authorized him to initiate others into Siddha Yoga. However, Adi Da was disappointed by his experience there, especially by the numbers of other Americans who had arrived since his previous visit.
Critique on damages as a remedy it, Adi Da wrote that he had uniquely been born with full awareness of "the Bright," but this knowledge became obscured in childhood. His subsequent spiritual journey was a quest to recapture this awareness, and share it with others.
Adi Da visited him and related his experience the previous month of "The Bright. During the visit Adi Da reconciled with Rudi. He began giving lectures there based on his autobiography, soon attracting a small following due in part to his charismatic speaking style.
He incorporated many ideas from the Kashmir Shaivite and Advaita Vedanta schools of Hinduismbut also expressed original insights and opinions about both spirituality and secular culture. Inhe traveled to India to meet a final time with Swami Muktananda in hopes of being recognized as a " Mahasiddha ", or fully enlightened sage.
They disagreed on a series of questions Adi Da had prepared. This effectively ended their relationship, and they went on to later disparage each other's relative level of spiritual accomplishment.
He divorced Nina, although she remained a follower. Adi Da and a group of selected followers moved there and experimented in communal living. Adi Da often changed his name, saying it reflected differences or changes in the nature of his message and relationship to followers.

However, due to the controversial nature of its contents, all available copies were quickly retrieved and ritually burned at Adi Da's behest. Others stated that they never witnessed or were involved in any such activities.
Adidam charged that allegations against the church were part of an extortion plot. A lawyer for the church said that controversial sexual activities had only occurred during the "Garbage and Goddess" period years earlier.
Shortly after, an official church spokesman said that " tantra -style encounters" of the kind described in allegations were still occurring, but were mostly confined to an inner circle.
The O'Mahoney suit was dismissed the next year. Doctors diagnosed exhaustion and stress, but he afterward described it as a death and resurrection. As in previous and subsequent similar episodes, Adi Da attributed special significance to it, calling it his "Divine Emergence".
When this failed to occur, he experienced another breakdown. Adi Da claimed to have been Swami Vivekananda in a past life, and said that in a previous incarnation Lenz was then a disciple. Philosophy[ edit ] Fundamental to Adi Da's religious philosophy is the essentially "eastern" religious concept that the purpose of human life is spiritual enlightenmentan awakening to ultimate reality that is the natural state of all human beings though seemingly obscured.
He called this activity "self-contraction," and defined it as a psychological mechanism lying somewhere beneath the normal level of conscious awareness, leading people to believe they are limited, suffering individuals.
