Prior Unity
The Basis for a New Human Civilization
—by the World-Friend Adi Da
This book’s message is that the impulse to peaceful, cooperative coexistence is humanity’s “true north”. The impulse comes from our root-intelligence as one single species, and, at the same time, reflects the inherent unity of all life.

“If humankind is going to make it to the other end of this century, it will only be by recourse to great Wisdom-Action, as presented in Prior Unity. And only together, as Earth-World all together—as one, not two. Profounder Wisdom is not available anywhere—nor more radical action. Drink from this source—deeply, from its infinite depth.”
Rolf C. Carriere, Former U.N. official

Price: $12.95

To satisfy what human beings truly want and need (security, and the opportunity for unlimited participation in our social, cultural, and economic life), and to ensure a benign future for life on earth, we have no choice: We must transcend what separates us and build on the deep foundation we all share, which is our prior, or already-existing, unity.

The prophetic call running through the whole book is that if we want to find the real basis for a new human culture, we must look beyond the outer world of separate objects, others, and events to the source, the root-condition in which all our experience is actually happening. This is not a religious matter, nor even a spiritual matter in any exclusive sense. It is about the source-reality that has no name, that is not a deity, but which is the being-essence in which we exist, the limitless conscious awareness to which every one of us has access, regardless of our beliefs or philosophy.
The World-Friend Adi Da

A global transformation is now required in human culture—after the devastation, or collapse, of ego-civilization in the twentieth century. Something entirely new is required—something comprehensively right. . . . What is required is not a search for unity. Rather, what is required is the enacting of the power of prior unity.
—The World-Friend Adi Da, from Prior Unity


This is not a book about politics as we know it. It is about uncovering the true basis for a new politics, a new social contract that is founded in, and expressive of, how things really are.

• An essential primer to World-Friend Adi Da’s wisdom on peace and true human culture, with carefully chosen selections and an accessible introduction.
• Affordable and portable edition makes it easy to share!


Prior Unity includes carefully chosen excerpts from Not-Two Is Peace and other published texts, as well as a significant percentage of never-before-published Spoken Instructions that span many years of World-Friend Adi Da’s lifetime.

For a first book we recommend Prior Unity. For further reading on the topic, please see Not-Two Is Peace.

More Praise for Prior Unity:

This is a sacred book to be read from the sacred space within us that has never forgotten we have always been one and we can manifest this prior unity on earth straight away.
Lisette Schuitemaker, Author of Alight, Chair of the Center for Human Emergence (the Netherlands), Chair of Trustees of the Findhorn Foundation

Every human being who reads Prior Unity will re-awaken to the truth that we are not separate individuals, nations and races, but members of one global family that arises and exists as an egoless prior unity. Read this book—and take responsibility, with all seven billion, for the earth and all of humanity as a single system.
Hugh O’Doherty, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Our essential oneness has been emphasized through the centuries by sages. The book Prior Unity highlights the essence of oneness, for action that generates results: knowing we are one; moving from competition to cooperation; being responsible; and refusing to play in ego-based, exploitative games. Prior Unity is an inspiring and profound call to action.
Monica Sharma, International expert and practitioner of leadership development for sustainable and equitable change

Prior Unity is a path-breaking compilation of Adi Da’s teachings on planetary non-dualism. Individual and social cooperation can be expressed only through the responsible activism of an embodied, inclusive global community. Let’s make it happen!
James B. Quilligan, International economist
