Synopsis: The Ineffable has Happened. The deepest longings of the human heart are answered and vindicated. The Ruchira Avatar, Adi Da Samraj, is that Breakthrough Presence, Reality Itself Shining into the 'cave' as He once said, 'like Sunlight in the morning'. And this book is His Supreme Statement that 'morning' has come. The Boundless Self-Confession, written only a few months before He passed from the body (in November 2008), brings to culmination a lifetime of Revelation writings by the Ruchira Avatar about the eternal meaning and purpose of His Appearance, revealing profundities that are ultimately unfathomable. But the heart knows. The heart, as His Divine Presence says, 'is where everyone comes to Me'.
--from the Introduction by Carolyn Lee
From Part One, The Universally Consequential Event At Ruchira Dham Hermitage:
You must recognize Me As I Am. When you 'Know' Me, you 'Know' Reality Itself.
Then all of your ego-patterning ceases to be relevant.
'You' are no longer happening. Only the Divine Is Happening.
All of this Is the Divine Event. There are no egos here not one, not at all.
This is the 'ground zero' of ego-culture.
Ego-culture came to an end in the Ruchira Dham Event.
Now it is a new historical epoch for humankind.
Now everyone must catch up with Me.
Whole-bodily-responsive devotional recognition of Me Is the Divine Avataric Basis for an entirely new world-culture of humankind.
The Ruchira Avatar, The Boundless Self-Confession
About the Author:
From his birth (on Long Island, New York, in 1939), Adi Da has always manifested unique signs of spiritual illumination. Nevertheless, from his birth, and until his spiritual restoration at thirty years of age, Adi Da submitted himself to an ordeal of 'self-identification' with all the limitations and sufferings of the human condition. Adi Da describes his early years as being focused in two fundamental activities: investigating how, in the scale of human 'ordinariness', to perfectly realize the Truth of 'Reality Itself', and (coincidently) both achieving and demonstrating the human-scale ability to communicate the Truth of 'Reality Itself' through both visual and verbal means.
Adi Da graduated from Columbia University in 1961, with a BA in philosophy, and from Stanford University in 1966, with an MA in English literature. His master's thesis, a study of core issues in modernism, focused on the literary experiments of Gertrude Stein and on the modernist painters of the same period.
In 1964, Adi Da began a period of intensive practice under a succession of spiritual masters in the United States and India. In 1968, he went to India and approached the renowned spiritual master Swami Muktananda of Ganeshpuri, who immediately responded by saying that Adi Da was a spiritual master at birth, 'the most extraordinary Westerner' he (Swami Muktananda) had ever encountered. One year later, in a unique letter of acknowledgment, Swami Muktananda made an open public declaration that Adi Da is, by virtue of his evident spiritual signs and demonstrated states, inherently qualified to teach others independently, and to awaken others spiritually by direct transmission.
Later, in 1970, after a final period of intense spiritual endeavor, Adi Da spontaneously became re-established in the continuous state of illumination that was his unique condition at birth and that re-awakening signaled the end of his thirty years of spiritual quest. After his re-awakening, Adi Da began to teach, creating a vast repository of wisdom, in living dialogue with those who approached him as devotees. To date, his literary, philosophical, and practical writings consist of over sixty published books, many internationally acclaimed. In the early 1970s, Alan Watts, writer of numerous books on religion and philosophy, acknowledged Adi Da as 'a rare being', adding 'It is obvious, from all sorts of subtle details, that he knows what IT's all about'.
In the early evening of Thursday, November 27, 2008, Avatar Adi Da Samraj departed from the body. Many times throughout His life, Avatar Adi Da Samraj prepared His devotees to rightly understand the significance of His human lifetime: the fact that it would inevitably come to an end at some point; and that the primary purpose of His life and work was to establish the means necessary for all future generations to be able to link up with Him, making the Way of Adidam to be available to all in perpetuity.
