Avataric Revelation and the Restoration of Spritual Culture

Avataric Revelation and the Restoration of Spiritual Culture:
On the Life, Work, and Spiritual Legacy of Avatar Adi Da Samraj

The passing of a spiritual master and the questions of succession, organizational continuity, and fidelity to the master’s life, instruction, and work have often been problematic and contentious. These challenges are not specific to any tradition and have been met variously throughout history, but they take on new dimensions in the case of Avatar Adi Da Samraj (1939-2008), the spiritual founder of Adidam Ruchiradam. The multi-tiered task of establishing a new tradition, with all of its spiritual, philosophical, aesthetic, cultural, legal, and organizational expressions is monumental in scale — like the artistic images created by Adi Da in the last decade of his life. There is an untold story in Adi Da’s work to create this new spiritual tradition and another in the maturing practice and organizational life of Adidam members — both of which have entered into a new chapter with Adi Da’s passing in November 2008.

What a great book! Feels very accessible, honest and clarifying regarding Adi Da's Divine Avataric Spiritual Blessing Work. Ebooks are an excellent way to get Adi Da's Leela out to many, many people.
