For more than thirty years, Avatar Adi Da Samraj has been helping people of all ages to find, feel, and practice Spiritual Happiness. Beginning with His now classic spiritual autobiography, The Knee of Listening, He has published well over eighty books on every subject pertaining to spiritual life, including: the nature of God and Reality, diet and health, relationships and sexuality, death and dying, meditation, enlightenment, and the nature of the human ego. Adi Da Samraj’s unique wisdom has inspired the formation of schools, health clinics, artisans guilds and retreat sanctuaries, as well as an international network of communities devoted to the spiritual practice that He has outlined.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj


Adi Da Samraj has transformed and benefitted the lives of many people, including both His devotees and others who have been inspired by His Teaching and His Spiritual Transmission of Perfect Happiness. He not only draws people from every walk of life into that Perfect Happiness; He also provides detailed wisdom for every walk of life, inspiring artists and professionals of every kind to a "new order", a new way of practicing their craft that reconnects it with, and grounds it in, its Source. Here are just a few examples.

General Testimonials

Bryan Deschamp is Senior Advisor at UNHCR (the United Nations High Commission for Refugees). He was formerly the Dean of the Carmelite House of Studies, Australia, and the Dean of Trininty College, University of Melbourne. The life and teaching of Avatar Adi Da Samraj are of profound and decisive spiritual significance at this critical moment in history.
It is obvious, from all sorts of subtle details, that he knows what IT's all about . . . One who knows that he is the Godhead from the beginning doesn't have to use any kind of force to be that — whether spiritual, moral, or material…a rare being.

Dan HamburgDan Hamburg is a former member of the U.S. Congress, where he authored the Headwaters Forest Act, a bill that passed the House overwhelmingly. In 1998, he was the Green Party candidate for Governor of California. He is currently the Executive Director of VOTE (Voice of The Environment), a foundation dedicated to creating a progressive political coalition that can challenge the current two-party "duopoly."

Adi Da Samraj is the transcendent and transformational Being of our era. He is the Good News Who has come in answer to our prayers. . . .

Avatar Adi Da's insistence on the primary importance of human-scale cooperative community as the basic unit of the successful state is bold and refreshing. Each of us bears responsibility to practice, moment to moment, the ego-surrendering sacrifice that makes life sacred at the community level, peaceful on the level of interaction among nations.

Adi Da's Teaching is neither utopian nor dissociative; it is simply a radically new human politics based on the Truth. Even as He transcends the common bonds of the human, Adi Da remains the Great Teacher of the pragmatic human situation. How incredibly blessed that He is here at the moment when we need Him most!

But I know that the Divine Heart-Master is the Ultimate Healer . . . because He is the only One Who can awaken you beyond all disease, all change, all suffering, beyond even death itself, to His very Nature: Immortal, Unchanging, Deathless, All-Pervading Conscious Light. Adi Da Samraj is the Divine Heart-Master, the Promised God-man, the True Healer. . . .

Adi Da Samraj is a man who has truly walked in Spirit and given true enlightenment to many.

I regard the work of Adi Da and his devotees as one of the most penetrating spiritual and social experiments happening on the planet in our era.   Jeffrey MishloveJeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., was the host of the Thinking Allowed PBS television series, and author of The PK Man: A True Story of Mind Over Matter.

Called by Buckminster Fuller "the best informed human on the concept of futurism", Barbara is an internationally known lecturer and the author of several books, including her most recent Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential. She is the co-creator of an intentional cooperative community in Santa Barbara.

I recognize the God-Presence Incarnate in Adi Da Samraj as whole and full and complete. . . .

Our goal as a community is to develop the processes, tools, and templates that any such community could use anywhere in the world. What I gained from Adi Da's instruction about such "cultural reformation" is that 1) you have to overcome egoity and 2) you have to create human-scale cooperative community. . . . We are a real example of how such a community can benefit from Adi Da's Wisdom and Blessing.

I regard Adi Da Samraj as one of the greatest teachers in the Western world today. Irina TweedieIrina Tweedie is the author of Chasm of Fire. She was a Sufi teacher until her death in 2000.

He was formerly a professor of computer science at Rutgers University, a world-renowned researcher in Artificial Intelligence, and the editor of the state-of-the-art series, Artificial Intelligence in Engineering Design. He received the 2002 National Leadership Award from the NRCC. I have spent a lifetime studying and experimenting with the traditional and contemporary "solutions" to the basic Spiritual problems with which mankind has struggled for eons. And so I can say without a doubt (not merely as a scholar, but as a practitioner) that Avatar Adi Da Samraj offers to all beings the greatest Spiritual Realization ever made available on this planet. Strong words! And ones that both affront an egalitarian society, and require much to back up. But I've dedicated much of my recent life and writing to doing just that, with the passionate intent that many others become aware of, and drink from, this Unlimited Fountain of Perfect Happiness, particularly while He is still present in human form.
My relationship with Adi Da Samraj over many years has only confirmed His Realization and the Truth of His impeccable Teaching. He is much more than simply an inspiration of my music, but is really a living demonstration that perfect transcendence is actually possible. This is both a great relief and a great challenge. If you thirst for truth, here is a rare opportunity to drink.

Adi Da Samraj and his unique body of teaching work offer a rare and extraordinary opportunity for those courageous students who are ready to move beyond ego and take the plunge into deepest communion with the Absolute. Importantly, the teaching is grounded in explicit discussion of necessary psychospiritual evolution and guides the student to self-responsibility and self-awareness.

I have been privileged to have studied with a number of Great and wonderful Chi-Gong Masters over the last 35 years. I am very grateful to them all. But I wish to Acknowledge my True Spiritual Master, Adi Da Samraj. I have been honored to have been able to see Adi Da Samraj on a number of occasions and I am convinced that He is without doubt the Greatest Living Master of all time. Avatar Adi Da Samraj is more than just a Master, even a Supreme Master — He is the most Human of Beings I have ever met. He is not just a Master of Power like so many I have met in my own training. Adi Da Samraj is truly a Master of the Heart, a Great and Rare Being of Exquisite Softness and Extraordinary Genius. Adi Da Samraj is a Master of Love, which is the Truest and Greatest Healing Force in the Universe.   Master Jane YangMaster Jane Yang, has been practicing Chi-Gong Therapy for 35 years and is well known both in Australia and in China as a true Master of the art and science of Chi-Gong.

Adi Da Samraj has spoken directly to the heart of our human situation — the shocking gravity of our brief and unbidden lives. Through his words I have experienced a glimmering of eternal life, and view my own existence as timeless and spaceless in a way that I never have before. . . . Avatar Adi Da's Divine Emergence marks a new chapter in epochal Spiritual History. . . . This is the birth of fundamental and radical Scripture. When Avatar Adi Da Samraj says His bodily (human) Form "Is (Itself) the Teaching", this is an absolute phenomenon to which all other truths must bear witness. Richard GrossingerRichard Grossinger is the author of Planet Medicine and Out of Babylon: Ghosts of Grossinger's.
Lee Sannella, M.D.Lee Sannella, M.D., is the author of The Kundalini Experience. Fly to the side of this God-Man. His Divine Transmission works miracles of change not possible by any other Spiritual means.
That God can, among other things, actually incarnate in human form once seemed unbelievable to me. But seeing Him and reading His books obliterated all doubt about the existence of God right now, here on Earth in human form. It breaks my heart that there are so many who have not yet found out that Avatar Adi Da Samraj is here. Charmian Anderson, Ph.D.Charmian Anderson, Ph.D., is a therapist whose work has been featured in USA Today and Fortune Magazine. She is also the author of The Heart of Success, and Bridging Heaven and Earth.
Henry Leroy Finch, Ph.D.Henry Leroy Finch, Ph.D., is the author of Simone Weil and the Intellect of Grace and Wittgenstein: The Later Philosophy. He is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Philosophy at Hunter College, City University, New York. If there is a man today who is God-illumined, that man is Avatar Adi Da Samraj. There exists nowhere in the world today, among Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, native tribalists, or any other groups, anyone who has so much to teach, or speaks with such authority, or is so important for understanding our situation. If we are willing to learn from him in every way, he is a force to be reckoned with — a Pole around which the world can get its bearings.
No message of Liberation has ever been so direct. All stories and traditions of the God-Man pale before the intensely loving and heart-stirring Cry of Avatar Adi Da to simply melt into the Ocean of Divine Love-Bliss that He Is.

Joseph Troncale, Ph.D.Joseph Troncale, Ph.D., is a professor of Russian at the University of Richmond, where he is also the Director of Russian and East European Studies. In 1989, he received the Virginia State Council of Higher Education Outstanding Teaching Award.

Roger SavoieRoger Savoie is a philosopher, writer, and translator. He is the author of La Vipère et le Lion: La Voie radicale de la Spiritualité and Le philosophe chat: ou, Les ruses du désir, and has written for such prominent magazines as La Revue 3e millénaire. Nothing like this has ever been Revealed before. We have waited for this moment in history for countless lifetimes. Adi Da Samraj is the True Heart of the world.
Israel RegardieIsrael Regardie is the author of The Golden Dawn.  

He is a great teacher with the dynamic ability to awaken in his listeners something of the divine Reality in which he is grounded, with which he is identified, and which in fact, he is.

How can one describe Who Avatar Adi Da Samraj Is? Can the brightness of the sun be hinted at in a fire of sticks? In the traditional sources, it is said that the Guru is necessary because the Guru Reveals God. Without the Guru, God would not be known by ordinary men and women. Thus I would like to place you in front of Adi Da. For if you could truly see Him, you would see God, and then no long-winded discussion would be necessary.

  James SteinbergJames Steinberg is the author of Divine Distraction: A Guide to the Guru-Devotee Relationship and is featured in Dialogues with Emerging Spiritual Teachers. He is a longtime devotee of Adi Da Samraj.
