Adi Da Samraj uses the term non-humans to refer to everything that is not human–animals, plants, trees, forces of nature, rocks and walls. All of these are considered to be in some sense conscious, living beings and processes.
Sitting around with a number of His students one afternoon, Adi Da told them:
I am here to sensitize you to what all other beings experience, what other forms–like these curtains and that fan–experience, even though they may not even appear to be conscious. You think there is no consciousness in these so-called objects. There is nothing but Consciousness Itself.
–Adi Da Samraj, November 26, 1984
