There Is only cause for weeping, and for Joy. My Free right hand has brought my “othering” mind to rest—in the whole body’s lap of Prior Enjoyment. I Am Love-Bliss, only.

—Avatar Adi Da Samraj
The Mummery Book

The Mummery Book tells the story of Raymond Darling—his birth, his growth to manhood, his finding and losing of his beloved (Quandra), and his ultimate resolution of the heart-breaking "problem" of mortality. He goes through an extraordinary series of adventures and ordeals to penetrate every level of the world of "unenlightened existence", or all the crises necessary to re-Awaken to his own Divine Nature.

Written in a unique and poetic language that takes the reader through a startling range of emotion and thought, The Mummery Book is a profound communication about how to realize the absolute Truth in the midst of the chaos and heart-break of human experience.

The appearance of The Mummery Book by Adi Da Samraj signals a remarkable occasion in the world of literature. It is a novel in the mode of a vast parable, in which mystical and esoteric states of awareness are fleshed in poetic imagery. It is an experimental work—what Adi Da Samraj calls a “prose opera”—that shatters the conventional limits of language and raises literary portrayal to radical levels of consciousness.
At the level of form and style, The Mummery Book is reminiscent of Gertrude Stein, e.e. cummings, and Joyce. Adi Da makes words crackle and swoon, pound and console with an endless suggestiveness guided by a desire to open up the reader’s heart and imagination to the possibility of transformation. . . . As playful as it is profound, as heart-breaking as it is consoling, The Mummery Book is an absolutely unique literary experience.
