9781570972201: Radical Devotion (The Way of Perfect Knowledge series)

Radica Devotion is a direct invitation from Adi Da to anyone and everyone. In these new essays, he speaks to the heart-depth of our being, to our longing for Truth and profound experience. The core of Adi Da's Way is simply the relationship with him and it unfolds entirely on the basis of recognition of his "Bright" and Divine State. To recognize Adi Da is to be utterly heart-moved by the sight of him, to wordlessly "know" his bodily communication of non-separateness and freedom with every aspect of one's being. This tacit "knowing" is as direct and obvious as physically entering a sacred place--and the force of Adi Da's spiritual state tangibly transforms the being. Adi Da tells us that human beings can be free of all bondage and free of the struggle. In the ecstasy of devotion to him, we enter into a truly serious and most deeply joyful process--one that is unique in human time. In that process, the heart's true longing is utterly fulfilled.

About the Author:

n November 27, 2008, Adi Da Samraj, departed from the body. He passed on to humankind a legacy of inexhaustible profundity and limitless Blessing-Power. Adi Da's primary gift is his own Eternal Transcendental Spiritual Being. The primary purpose of his human lifetime was to establish the means by which any and all beings could be truly connected to him and in devotional communion with him. Thus, he worked with utmost intensity, throughout his entire life, to develop and establish his Transcendental Spiritual Way.

Adi Da's literary, philosophical, and practical writings consist of over sixty published books including The Knee of Listening, his Spiritual Autobiography, The Dawn Horse Testament, his magisterial revelation of the entire Spiritual Process from beginning to end, and The Aletheon, his final (and first and foremost) book. In addition to his writings, Adi Da gave thousands of hours of recorded discourse. Many discourses have been published by The Dawn Horse Press on CD and DVD.

Adi Da was a prolific artist, producing a remarkable body of work in different media. He was invited to show his work in a solo exhibition at the 2007 Venice Biennale, and also as part of the 2008 Winter in Florence and his work will be shown in New York. Among the publications of Adi Da's art are The World As Light, Transcendental Realism, and The Spectra Suites.

Another dimension to Adi Da's far-reaching legacy is the social wisdom embodied in his book Not-Two Is Peace. In it he calls for the establishment of a Global Cooperative Forum that mobilizes 'everybody-all-at-once' on the basis of recognizing the prior (or inherent) unity of the entire human family. He proposes that such a forum is the necessary and effective means for addressing the world's most pressing issues.

In Praise of Adi Da Samraj

'I regard Heart-Master Adi Da as one of the greatest teachers in the Western world today.'
--Irina Tweedie, Sufi teacher; author, Chasm of Fire

'He is a great teacher with the dynamic ability to awaken in his listeners something of the divine Reality in which he is grounded, with which he is identified, and which in fact, he is.'
--Israel Regardie, Author, The Golden Dawn

'It is obvious, from all sorts of subtle details, that he knows what IT's all about . . . a rare being.'
--Alan Watts, Author, The Way of Zen, Man and Woman, In My Own Way

'I regard the work of Adi Da and his devotees as one of the most penetrating spiritual and social experiments happening on the planet in our era.'
--Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D. Host, PBS Series Thinking Allowed and author.

'Through his words I have experienced a glimmering of eternal life, and view my own existence as timeless and spaceless in a way that I never have before.'
--Richard Grossinger, author, Planet Medicine, The Night Sky

Praise for Not-Two Is Peace

'Absolutely brilliant. Undauntingly honest. Staggeringly bold. A breathtaking call to humankind to wake up'
--Charmian Anderson, Doctor of Transpersonal Psychology and author.

'Profound wisdom on the root of human conflict, and the path away from a grim destiny. An astonishing gift'
--Jonathan Lynch, Professor, Pennsylvania State University

Praise for Avatar Adi Da's Transcendental Realism Art

'It is a rare artist who can convey, convincingly, the sense of being face to face with the source of being. Adi Da can clearly live in the depths without succumbing to their pressure, bringing back pearls of art to prove it.'
--Donald Kuspit, Critic, Professor of Art History and Philosophy, State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Review:

Avatar Adi Da Samraj is more than just a Master, even a Supreme Master--He is the most human of beings I have ever met. He is not a Master of Power like so many I have met in my own training. Adi Da Samraj is truly a Master of the Heart. A Great and Rare Being of Exquisite Softness and Extraordinary Genius. --Jane Yang, Chi Gong Master
