About the author (1993)

When Adi Da Samraj was born, in New York in 1939, he was completely aware of his Divine Condition. He existed only as this Radiant State, full of Love-Bliss, and named it the "Bright." Around the age of two years, in a spontaneous gesture of love toward those around him, he relinquished the enjoyment of the "Bright" and identified with the self-contracted state of ordinary beings. This initiated an unprecendented ordeal of relentless investigation into the Nature of Reality. Adi Da fully embraced and freely investigated all manner of human experience, high and low, in order to Re-Awaken to the "Bright." And he did so in order to discover how to draw all beings to that Perfect Condition of Love-Bliss. Adi Da persisted in his unrelenting enquiry into Reality until the process fulfilled itself on September 10, 1970, when he Re-Awakenend as the "Bright." In His spiritual autobiography, The Knee Of Listening, Adi Da recounts this unique and heroic ordeal. Following his Divine Re-Awakening, Adi Da embarked on an unprecendented teaching demonstration in which he thoroughly considered every aspect of ordinary and spiritual life. Adi Da's teaching emerged from this free, direct and thorough consideration, and from his Perfect Realization of the "Bright." In the more than 35 years since he began teaching, Adi Da Samraj has communicated a vast store of wisdom. His teaching frees the heart from its bondage and brings it into contact with the Truth of our condition. Adi Da has written well over 60 books and given thousands of discourses to on every subject that relates to human and spiritual understanding: from the most ordinary and mundane to the most sacred and esoteric, and also on art (since he is an artist as well). Many of Adi Da's discourses are available on tape, CD and DVD through the Dawn Horse Press. Adi Da's unique teaching has inspired thousands of people and helped them to truly understand what "God" is, what the true purpose of religion is, and has allowed them to directly experience the Divine Condition that is the Condition of everyone and everything.
