About this title


When Adi Da looked at "The Heart of the Ribhu Gita" he was moved to make his own rendering or "interpretive translation" of the text, in order to elucidate, and thereby honor, its full meaning. He was not intending to re-write the text from his point of view, but, rather, to draw out the real intention of Ribhu, as only another Realizer can. He also reviewed other great dharma from the tradition of Advaita Vedanta and from the Buddhist tradition. He was bringing the essence of the instruction to the fore. The texts whose meanings were only partially (or cryptically) expressed even in the original let alone in translation were suddenly shining forth, like rough gems cut by an expert hand. Adi Da chose to read these texts to his devotees. In each case, he was bringing the essence of the instruction, with an elegance and illumined understanding that left his devotees speechless in amazement. "The traditional texts presented by Me in this Book are only a few in number, but they are outstanding among the most important texts ever written. They are so much to the point that they are profoundly Illuminating--not sufficient for the Awakening of Transcendental Realization Itself, but potentially sufficient to bring anyone to practice at the feet of a true Master. " Adi Da Samraj "To understand the great religions in a new light, one has only to read Adi Da Samraj. Anyone who has an open mind cannot help feeling that his description of the Supreme Yoga of the seventh stage of life is true. Intuitively you will be convinced that Adi Da Samraj knows what he is talking about because of his unique Realization." Roger Savoie, PhD, Philosopher, writer and translator Author: La Vipere et le Lion La Voie radicale de la Spiritualite [The Snake and the Lion, the Radical Way of Spirituality]

About the Author:

When Adi Da Samraj was born, in New York in 1939, he was completely aware of his Divine Condition. Around the age of two years, in a spontaneous gesture of love toward those around him, he relinquished the enjoyment of this condition and identified with the self-contracted state of ordinary beings. Adi Da fully embraced and freely investigated all manner of human experience, high and low, in order to re-awaken. And he did so in order to discover how to draw all beings to that perfect condition of love-bliss. Adi Da persisted in his unrelenting enquiry into Reality until the process fulfilled itself on September 10, 1970, when he re-awakenend. In his Spiritual autobiography, "The Knee Of Listening", Adi Da recounts this unique and heroic ordeal. In 1972 he started teaching. The crux of Adi Da's argument is this: each of us already inheres in the divine condition of perfect love-bliss however, each of us is actively presuming that we are inherently separate from this condition, and from all others. Adi Da reveals that this is a false presumption an illusion based on our identification with a mortal body-mind, rather than on the true and non-separate divine condition. The transcendence of this error (and all the suffering that attends it) is absolutely necessary for real and lasting Happiness. Adi Da's teaching is a means to discover for yourself the truth of his revelation. His teaching frees the heart from its bondage and brings it into contact with the truth of our condition. Adi Da has written over 70 books and given thousands of discourses. Many of these are available on tape, CD and video and DVD. His work has inspired thousands of people and helped them to truly understand what "God" is, what the true purpose of religion is, and has allowed them to directly experience the divine condition that is the condition of everyone and everything.
