Synopsis: "Religion is 'cult' ". Adi Da Samraj once opened an essay with this provocative statement. By definition, He went on to explain, religion is a sacralized system of philosophical and practical observances within the domain of time and space. Because it necessarily consists of defined beliefs and rituals, dependent on the existence of the concrete world in which it appears, he points out the self-evident fact that no religion can ever, in and of itself, be equal to Truth or Reality. Reality Itself is always senior to the cults of humankind. So what is the right and true relationship between religion and Reality? "Religion and Reality" presents Adi Da's answer to that question. In some ways, to most deeply receive the communication in this book is to be loosed from centuries of misunderstanding and to find the freedom to consider the real purpose of the world and the nature of Real God as Reality Itself. Who would not be interested in such a proposal? Adi Da Samraj: "True religion is not about the 'me' -person who participates in religion. Rather, true religion is about the Divine with Which any individual is re-associating, or re-uniting. True religion is, ultimately, about discovering Oneness with the Divine Self-Condition to be Always Already the Case." "The writings of Adi Da Samraj are the most doctrinally thorough, the most philosophically sophisticated, the most culturally challenging, and the most creatively original literature on radical nonduality currently available in the English language". Jeffrey J. Kripal, J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Religious Studies, Rice University;Author, Kali s Child: The Mystical and the Erotic in the Life and Teachings of Ramakrishna

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.
