"Perfect Knowledge", as given by Adi Da Samraj, is not any kind of conventional
knowing via the mind or the body. It is, rather, tacit and direct apprehension that
occurs prior to the ego-position. "Perfect Knowledge" is a searchless
"Knowing" that exists prior to any form of thinking, a "Locating"
of the Reality-Position, which is revealed as one's true and only Position when
the illusion of "I"-and-"other" drops away. Avatar Adi Da, therefore,
places this term in quotation marks to distinguish it from the conventional use
and understanding of the word "knowledge", which is a function of mind,
and which is based on the paradigm of separation between subject and object. Because
"Perfect Knowledge" of Reality cannot come about through any exercise
of mind or of body, it must be directly transmitted from the Source. Transmitting
"Perfect Knowledge" is one of Avatar Adi Da’s Divine Functions and Gifts.
Additionally, the practice of "Perfect Knowledge" is one of the three fundamentals
of the Way of Adidam. From early in their practice of the Way of Adidam, devotees
of Adi Da Samraj practice tacitly "Locating" the "Perfect Knowledge" of Reality.
This "Knowledge" cannot be sought, but is Given by Adi Da as a Gift. The practice
of "Perfect Knowledge" is not a technique or means for seeking, but occurs in direct
relationship with Adi Da and is founded in devotional recognition of Him as the
Revelation of Reality Itself.
