When you are sick of your results, when you are sick of your suffering, your seeking, and your bewilderment, when you know the dead-end of your doings, you Find Me.

The Boundless Self-Confession – Essays from The Aletheon — by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
"Written only a few months before He passed from the body (in November 2008), this book 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 Avatar Adi Da says, 'is where everyone comes to Me'". – from the Introduction by Carolyn Lee, PhD
The Ancient Walk-About Way – The Core Esoteric Process of Real Spirituality and Its Perfect Fulfillment in the Way of Adidam
by The Avataric Great Sage, Adi Da Samraj
In this beautiful collection of essays, Avatar Adi Da draws the reader through a consideration of the ancient tradition of heart-response to the living Realizer, and of His Unique and All-Completing Appearance in that tradition. The book includes a discussion of the Purpose and Principles of the Guru-devotee relationship and of the advantage that Avatar Adi Da represents in the lives of those who fully heart-respond to Him.
Devotion to the Realizer is the ancient Way of true Spiritual life. Devotion to the Realizer is the "pre-civilization Way", which existed before any recorded history, during a time when human beings were, essentially, merely wandering all over the Earth. Devotion to the Realizer has always been the fundamental Means of human Spirituality.
Easy Death – Spiritual Wisdom on the Ultimate Transcending of Death and Everything Else – by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
Talks and essays on the real nature of death and the death process, Realization of the deathless condition, accounts of "death events" in Avatar Adi Da's own life, His Spiritual and practical instruction during death transitions of His devotees, and much more.
An exciting, stimulating, and thought-provoking book that adds immensely to the ever-increasing literature on the phenomena of life and death. Thank you for this masterpiece – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D., author, On Death and Dying
Green Gorilla – The Searchless Raw Diet – Given By The Avataric Great Sage, Adi Da Samraj
The essential, summary communication of Avatar Adi Da Samraj relative to diet. Avatar Adi Da's fundamental recommendation relative to diet is the searchless raw (fructo-vegetarian) diet – searchless in the sense that it is simply lawful management of a body in Communion with the Living Reality, free of the need to use food as a means to solve any kind of problem or seek any kind of ideal in body or mind.
Not-Two Is Peace – The Ordinary People's Way of Global Cooperative Order – by World-Friend Adi Da
New, Expanded Third Edition
A comprehensive address to the global crises of our time, written out of concern for humanity's current plight. Adi Da points to the necessity of re-establishing human civilization - transforming its destiny through a Global Cooperative Forum.
The The Rebirth of Sacred Art with an essay by Professor Gary Coates and Avatar Adi Da’s essay, “The Maze of Ecstasy”, both written in response to the Cenacolo exhibition.
When read together, these two essays provide a comprehensive framework for understanding the place of Adi Da’s art within the context of the unfolding of Western art, consciousness, and culture — the initiation and effects of perspectival art, the Modernist's efforts to go beyond perspective, and Avatar Adi Da's perfect completion of that effort with His aperspectival Image-Art.
