An exciting, stimulating, and thought-provoking book that adds immensely to the ever-increasing literature on the phenomena of life and death. Thank you for this masterpiece.

Source Texts
   
   

Avatar Adi Da Samraj's 23 Source Texts are the Scriptures for the Way of Adidam, containing ultimate statements about the nature of Reality. They are "graduate school" level studies, written in specialized, technically precise language. They are a natural follow-through, once one has become somewhat familiar with the Way Of Adidam through more introductory texts.

The 23 Source Texts are divided into:

   
   
The Heart Of The Adidam Revelation
   
   

about Aham Da Asmi:

When I first read the Word of Avatar Adi Da Samraj, I was immediately transported into a state of wonderment and awe. Could it be? Could the Divine Person be here now, in this time and place? It didn't take long for my heart to answer a resounding "Yes". May the whole world be restored to Faith, Love, and Understanding by the Mystery of Real God, here and incarnate as Avatar Adi Da Samraj.
Ed Kowalczyk, lead singer and songwriter of the rock band, Live, whose albums include V, Distance to Here, and Mental Jewelry

(Beloved, I Am Da)

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
April, 2001.

paperback, 222 pages.

German edition:
Meine Geliebten, Ich binDa

     
   
 

about Ruchira Avatara Gita:

Avatar Adi Da's Ruchira Avatara Gita has been carved out of the Heart of a great, presently living Master, out of compassion for aspiring humanity. Only those who are ready to go beyond themselves can taste the ambrosia that flows out of such a Heart-Master as Avatar Adi Da. I feel this Gita will be of immense help to aspirants for a divine life.
M. P. Pandit, author, The Upanishads: Gateways of Knowledge; The Yoga Set of 4 Volumes

(The Way Of The Divine Heart-Master)

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
April, 2001.

paperback, 432 pages.

German edition:
Der Weg des Göttlichen Herz-Meisters

     
   
 

about Da Love-Ananda Gita:

This is the birth of fundamental and radical Scripture. When Avatar Adi Da Samraj says "My bodily (human) Form is (Itself) the Teaching", this is an absolute Phenomenon to which all other truths must bear witness.
Richard Grossinger, author, Planet Medicine; Out of Babylon: Ghosts of Grossinger's

 
  Book Three: Da Love-Ananda Gita
(The Free Gift Of The Divine Love-Bliss)

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
April, 2001.
paperback, 384 pages.
     
   
 
No message of Liberation has ever been so direct. All stories and traditions of the God-Man pale before the intensely loving and heart-stirring Cry of Avatar Adi Da to simply melt into the Ocean of Divine Love-Bliss that He Is.
J.C. Troncale, Professor of Russian, University of Richmond; Director of Russian and East European Studies
 
  Book Four: Hridaya Rosary
(Four Thorns Of Heart-Instruction)

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
April, 2001.
paperback, 358 pages.
   
 

This book is a must for spiritual aspirants . . . an unfailing guide to all true devotees.
K.T. Tangod, writing in Pathway to God magazine

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!
Dan Hamburg, Former member of Congress; Executive Director, Voice of the Environment

about Real God Is The Indivisible Oneness Of Unbroken Light:

What Einstein could never even begin to imagine, Avatar Adi Da has Realized and Revealed: that He is Light itself, incarnate, radiant with heart-love and the truth that we are never separate from the inherent Divinity of unbroken Light, even here, even now.
Scott Anderson, M.D., Director, Society for Orthomolecular Health Medicine

. . . a truth so awesome and majestic that, when seen in its fullness, it shines as brightly as ten thousand suns.
Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., host, Thinking Allowed public television series, author, The PK Man: A True Story of Mind Over Matter

by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
November, 2001.
paperback, 354 pages.
     
   
 
about The Truly Human New World-Culture Of Unbroken Real-God-Man:
Adi Da's teaching is remarkable. It has roots in the spiritual traditions of both the East and the West, yet identifies the limitations in each and moves beyond them. The Principle of Transcendence which he gives in this book lays the foundation for a revolutionary new religious ethic.

David Corner, Lecturer in Indian Philosophy, California State University
 
  Book Two: The Truly Human New World-Culture Of Unbroken Real-God-Man
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj

Hugh O'Doherty, Ph.D., John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

about He-and-She Is Me:

In this book, Adi Da Samraj speaks profoundly, poetically, comprehensively, and just plain beautifully about real spiritual life. He speaks without compromise as Consciousness Itself and thereby clarifies everything: unity, duality, Siva-Shakti, Light, Kundalini, the Great Tradition, the Goddess, Realization, true Guru-devotion, the physics of Divine Life, the Heart, the Nature of Consciousness, the Avatar, and the unitary meaning of "Da". If you understand even a little of this summary of His Teaching and Life, you will be changed: the "un-washed dog" of egoic life cannot survive the brilliance of this Shower of Light.
Ray Lynch, composer and musician, whose albums include the platinum album, Deep Breakfast; The Sky of Mind; and No Blue Thing

 
  Book Seven: He-and-She Is Me
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
December, 2000.
paperback, 416 pages.
     
   
 

about Ruchira Avatara Hridaya-Siddha Yoga:

Here is a glimpse into the vast Teachings of Adi Da Samraj, resonating with the Confidence of His Knowing Voice, beckoning with the intimacy of His Personal Call to each reader to Listen, Hear and See, and glowing with His Audacious and Radical Mission to bring the Highest Enlightenment to all. In the Bright Directness of His Message, there Is another poignant, even heart-rending, quality: The Bold Innocence of His Making Ultimate Claims in an age such as ours.
Stuart Sovatsky, Ph.D., author, Words from the Soul: Time, East/West Spirituality, and Psychotherapeutic Narrative, and Eros, Consciousness, and Kundalini

about The Seven Stages Of Life:

The Seven Stages Of Life is ecstatic Sacred literature, penetrating and powerful, simultaneously challenging and transcendent. Every sentence is Radiant with Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj's Presence and Heart Blessing, His Confession and Invitation. Each page is an urgent call to Consciousness. To truly understand what is written here is to be transformed in relationship with Him.
Robert K. Hall, M.D., psychiatrist; author, Out of Nowhere; co-founder, The Lomi School and The Lomi Clinic

Roger Savoie, Ph.D., Philosopher, writer, translator and author

Adi Da expresses the most profound insight in the simplest terms. He makes clear the principles of the highest Realization.

about Santosha Adidam:

Avatar Adi Da offers a true, complete, and radically new communication about "cure". Cure not as a body free of disease and a mind free of disturbance, but as body and mind infilled with the Omnipresent Light of Eternal Consciousness. Read the words that can heal your suffering heart, now and forever. Meet the Being of Light who can cure You of darkness.
Bill Gottlieb, author, Alternative Cures; former editor-in-chief, Rodale Books
