With great humor and penetrating insight, Avatar Adi Da unravels present-day scientific presumptions. A CD not to be missed!
In these excerpts from six unique discourses, Adi Da reveals how scientific materialism has replaced the sacred orientation in life and indoctrinated humankind into limited belief systems, discussing common views about evolution, astronomy versus astrology, ancient religions, the expanding universe, the 'language' of mathematics and shape, and more. In addition, he masterfully describes how knowledge is an effort to achieve power over nature, based on the fundamental illusion that there is such a thing as an independent (or objective) 'point of view'. In this process, Avatar Adi Da calls his listeners to be free of all false authorities, and to consider the way that perfectly transcends 'point of view' itself.
He said: The Way of Adidam is about really finding out. It is not about any preconceptions, beliefs about things, and it is not about any disbelief in anything. It is a real process which proves itself, and I advise you all to exercise discrimination and careful examination of anything within the realm of your thinking so that you are guided by what is really true. And do that relative to absolutely every matter, . . . whatever is out there in the world of human exchanges. (August 22, 2004)

On 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.
