The following verses are taken from Avatar Adi Da’s “Source-Text” Hridaya Rosary.

1.

Aham Da Asmi. Beloved, I Am Da.

2.

I Am Being Itself, Consciousness Itself, and Love-Bliss-Happiness Itself.

I Am Reality Itself.

I Am That Which Is Always Already The Case.

3.

This is What you discover, if you heart-recognize Me and heart-respond to Me, as My formal devotee.

4.

If you heart-recognize Me and heart-respond to Me, you Find Only Me.

Then, the images of the world—that cover your eyes and capture your mind—disappear.

And, then, There Is Only My Divine Form.

5.

Heart-responsive heart-recognition of Me is the moment to moment Foundation of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Way of Adidam (Which is the One and Only by-Me-Revealed and by-Me-Given Way of the Heart).

Truly, there is no end-phenomenon to the Great Process of heart-recognition of Me and heart-response to Me.

The practice of the Way of Adidam is always, moment to moment, the regeneration of the devotional Asana of heart-recognition of Me and heart-response to Me.

6.

The devotional (and, eventually, Spiritual) Process of heart-recognition of Me and heart-response to Me is not a self-generated matter.

The devotional (and, eventually, Spiritual) Process of heart-recognition of Me and heart-response to Me is not something done by the individual body-mind to itself.

Rather, the devotional (and, eventually, Spiritual) Process of heart-recognition of Me and heart-response to Me is what the body-mind spontaneously does, when it truly heart-Beholds Me.

7.

Heart-recognition of Me begins with your heart-Beholding of My Avatarically-Born bodily (human) Divine Form (whether, during My physical human Lifetime, in My physical Company or, at any time, and forever hereafter, via photographic or other technical or artistic representations of My Avatarically-Born bodily human Divine Form) and your heart-“consideration” of My Avataric Word (of Divine Self-Confession and Divine Heart-Instruction) and My Avataric Leela (of Divinely Liberating Play).

8.

Heart-recognition of Me is not a matter of merely knowing My Name or knowing what My bodily (human) Form looks like.

Heart-recognition of Me is not a matter of “believing” what any other says about Me.

Heart-recognition of Me is not a matter of reinforcing a structure in your own “belief”-mind.

Heart-recognition of Me is not a matter of identifying certain aspects of your own egoic experience as Me.

Heart-recognition of Me is not a matter of making a merely verbal acknowledgement of Me As the Divine Person.

Rather, heart-recognition of Me is a matter of heart-feeling Who (and What) I (My-Self) Am, altogether—As My Avatarically-Born bodily (human) Divine Form, and As My Avatarically Self-Revealed Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Divine Presence, and As My Avatarically Self-Revealed (and Very, and Transcendental, and Perfectly Subjective, and Inherently Spiritual, and Inherently egoless, and Inherently Perfect, and Self-Evidently Divine) State.

9.

If you heart-recognize Me, then you feel My “Bright” Divine Self-Condition, Prior to your own limited (and mortal) condition.

If you heart-recognize Me, then you are Swooned into the Ecstatic Asana of devotion to Me.

In that Ecstatic Asana of devotion to Me, you are entered into heart-Communion with Me.
