Adi Da’s Renderings bring these
traditional Buddhist texts to life in a unique manner. As He speaks
these ancient gems of instruction, the truth of each text comes
through and penetrates the heart. While listening, you might feel
that you are now not only in the room with Adi Da Samraj, but
also with the Buddhist Sages Gotama Sakyamuni and Nagarjuna!
Adi Da also speaks at length about the history of Advaitism
and Buddhism, clarifying that the Truth each of these traditions
proclaim is the same Truth—the Truth of Reality Itself.
He says, “As I have presented these texts to you, they speak in a
manner that shows the utter compatibility of the two traditions, of
Buddhism and Advaitism. And there is not the slightest
“difference” between the Truth one is proclaiming and the Truth
the other is proclaiming. Not the slightest. Nonetheless, these
traditions speak within the mode of the developmental stages of
life. . . . There is a Completing Utterance to be made and that is
the Nature of My Teaching.”
Adi Da Samraj also makes clear
that the true meaning of these texts is diminished when translated
by someone who has not Realized the Truth of the text. In making
these Renderings He has worked to speak these
traditional texts plainly, as One who has Realized the Truth of the
text, such that their unique power of Illumination can be received.
At the end of the Discourse, Adi Da calls all to become
sensitized to the terrible effects of egoity—on the individual and
the global scale. Many of those who were with Him on that rainy
day left feeling their absolute need for Realization—for which Adi
Da Offers Means, Blessing, and Compassionate Help. He said,
“Your whatever-degree of seriousness is what is bringing you to
Me now and that is the basis for the “Bond” you make with Me,
wherein the relationship to Me can work for the sake of your
Awakening. And I am here always to increase that seriousness in
you, that urgency in you.”
A Guide to
the 3-CD Set:
Disk One consists of
two Renderings by Avatar Adi Da:
1) “There Is A
Non-Conditional Condition To Be Realized: The Reality-Teachings
of The Buddhist Sage Gotama Sakyamuni"
Transcendental Truth of Reality: The Reality-Teachings of The
Buddhist Sage Nagarjuna"
Discs Two and
Three contain the Discourse Avatar Adi Da Samraj gave to
His devotees directly after He had first recited His Renderings of
the Reality-Teachings of Gotama Sakyamuni and Nagarjuna. This
Discourse, entitled “The Book of The Gnosticon”, is Part
Seven of The Gnosticon.
Discourse, Adi Da makes the startling Revelation that there is
absolutely no difference between the Reality-Truths attributed to
these two Buddhist Sages and the Reality-Truths attested to by the
great Sages in the tradition of Advaita Vedanta, such as Sri
In Truth, there is no
conflict between true Buddhism and true Advaitism. There is no
conflict whatsoever. There are different languages and
terminologies and whatnot. But you could see, by listening to My
Renderings of the Teachings that I have presented in the form of
these texts, that they are speaking in common and in the same
"room", and there is no basis for a conflict between them.
Adi Da also emphasizes that His Teaching
about to egoity is a unique Teaching, based on most fundamental
understanding of egoity. His is a "radical" Teaching, "at the root"
of what egoity really is. This preciseness cannot be found in
Buddhism or any other tradition. And His Revelation is entirely
