Advaitayana Buddhism indicates the unique and sympathetic likenesses of Adidam to the traditions of Advaitism (or Advaita Vedanta) and Buddhism.
In His examination of the entire collective religious tradition of Mankind, Avatar Adi Da has observed that these two traditions represent the highest Realizations ever attained previous to His appearance.
The primary aspiration of Buddhism is to realize freedom from the illusion of the separate individual ego-self. The primary aspiration of Advaitism (or the tradition of Non-Dualism) is to know the Supreme Divine Self absolutely, beyond all dualities (of high and low, good and bad, male and female, and so on).
Advaitayana Buddhism is the Non-Dual (Advaita) Way (yana, literally vehicle) of Most Perfect Awakening (Buddhism).
Advaitayana Buddhism is not an outgrowth of the historical tradition of Buddhism, or of the historical tradition of Advaitism. Advaitayana Buddhism is the unique Revelation of Avatar Adi Da Samraj, which perfectly fulfills both the traditional Buddhist aspiration for absolute freedom from the bondage of the egoic self and the traditional Advaitic aspiration for absolute Identity with the Divine Self.
