Spiritual Masters have been provided with set-apart places that
were set apart — geographically, psychically, and socially — from
the conventional world, where they were free to do their Spiritual
Work in an appropriate and secluded circumstance. And these places
became Spiritually Empowered through their Presence and Work, and
— as a result — continued to Spiritually Transmit the Blessing
of the Spiritual Master beyond His or Her human lifetime.
In this traditional
manner, devotees of Avatar Adi Da have provided places for Him —
His "Hermitage Ashrams"
— where He is completely set apart to do His Blessing-Work for
the sake of humanity as a whole, as well as His specific Spiritual
Work with devotees who come on pilgrimage to receive the Initiatory
Spiritual Blessing of being in His physical Company on retreat.
Work for the entire world is My Divine Blessing-Work, Which I
do principally in seclusion. I live in perpetual retreat in a
hermitage mode, and receive those of My devotees who are rightly
prepared in that circumstance. Sometimes I roam in public circumstances,
in order to have contact with people in general. But, fundamentally,
I remain in hermitage retreat.

Adi Da Samraj travels among the various Hermitage Ashrams, in His
spontaneous Wandering-Work of world-Blessing. Spiritually, however,
He is perpetually "in residence" at each of His Hermitage
Sanctuaries. This is because He has Invested Himself Spiritually
in each of these sacred places, and His Spiritual Power and Presence
is constantly active in all of them.
