Description
Contemporary renderings of the dharma of the great sages of Advaita Vedanta and Buddhism from the Realized Spiritual Master Avatar Adi Da Samraj

• Provides insight into the ultimate realization possible when dualistic consciousness has been transcended

In this book Avatar Adi Da Samraj offers his unique renderings of the dharma of the great sages of Advaita Vedanta and Buddhism, including Gotama Sakyamuni, Nagarjuna, Shankara, and Ribhu. Rather than simply translate their teachings from available source texts, Avatar Adi Da, himself a Realized Master, respeaks them as one who has personally realized their truth, revealing that the Buddhist “Nirvana” and the Advaitic “Brahman” point to the same transcendental condition. Avatar Adi Da’s transmissions restore to these texts the profound communication intended by the spiritual masters who created them.

The ego nurtures the illusion of separation, an illusion that cannot be removed by the ego’s own efforts. It is only the spiritual master who makes possible the realization of egoless consciousness. The great sages proclaimed a state of spiritual realization that exceeded both worldly dualism and mystical seeking. They had awakened to a reality that spoke of abiding in a state of consciousness only. Avatar Adi Da brings these remarkable declarations back to life and then concludes with his own unique description of a realization that transcends even these extraordinary utterances--the realization of Reality As It Is, free of all forms of the ego’s search.




Praise and Reviews
“Adi Da uses his deeply insightful reading of a number of traditional texts, drawn from both the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, as a means to clarify and specify the practice that leads to the ultimate stages of attainment. A revelation of profound originality and force, this book brings forward a new perspective on reality and consciousness.”
Paul E. Muller-Ortega, author of The Triadic Heart of Shiva

“The writings of Adi Da Samraj--including the important essays and talks in this book--are the most doctrinally thorough, the most philosophically sophisticated, the most culturally challenging, and the most creatively original literature on nonduality currently available in the English language.”
Jeffrey Kripal, director and chair of Religious Studies at Rice University and author of Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion
