What Others Have Said About
This extraordinary book creates a powerful experience of the Reality and Truth of Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj. Because it so poignantly quotes and clarifies His Teaching and His Life, it has deepened my experience of Him as the Divine Gift established in the Cosmic Domain.
GABRIEL COUSENS, M.D.
This captivating biography of Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj is without precedent. It is the profound Love Story of the Incarnation in human form of the Divine Being, and his great Teaching ordeal to bring humanity out of the illusion of separateness from God, which is the root of all suffering. If you were allowed to read only one book in your lifetime, this should be the one.

Generations far into the future are going to celebrate the incredible story of the Ruchira Avatar and His devotees--which is not just High Dharma; it is also high drama. Everything is here: genius, tenderness, Blessing beyond belief; fragility, despair, unquenchable sorrow. I have fallen profoundly in love with this Great Being! His Presence here is a miracle of Divine Intervention.
My self-constricted ego bristles at the implied Messianism of the title, The Promised God-Man is Here--yet if God-consciousness is fully present as a liberating force in human form, why should there be any equivocating? His devotees are convinced and Carolyn Lee has assembled a lucid in-depth look at Adi Da, spreading the good news of his incarnation by telling his life story and giving an insiders view of his radical teaching efforts to awaken devotees. Ive been inspired by Adi Das writings for many years. He is a contemporary spiritual Hero, offering his transcendental gifts to a culture without a tradition for or even taste for Avatars . . . yet he bears the burdens of sagehood with persistence and love.
Dr. Lee has pulled back the veil of mystery and allowed us to meet the god-man behind the curtain. The interviews are intriguing. The history is captivating. The teachings are challenging. This book is must reading for anyone interested in the Promised God-Man.

When I first read the Word of Avatar Adi Da Samraj, I was immediately transported into a state of wonderment and awe. Could it be? Could the Divine Person be here now, in this time and place? It didn’t take long for my heart to answer a resounding Yes. May the whole world be restored to Faith, Love, and Understanding by the Mystery of Real God, here and Incarnate as Avatar Adi Da Samraj.

Reading The Promised God-Man Is Here puts you into direct relationship with the Divine Being, Avatar Adi Da Samraj. This relationship starts where all other spiritual systems seek to endface-to-face with the Living Embodiment of Perfect Love.
I was swept along, enraptured by every page, unable to put this book down. The life of the living Spiritual Master Avatar Adi Da Samraj is truly the greatest story ever told. Read this book and find out why.
As I read The Promised God-Man Is Here, the Force of this incredible story washed over and through me. Moving before my eyes and heart were story after story of the lives of devotees being converted to Truth; passage after passage of Avatar Adi Das talks, essays, ecstatic and poetic communications—some never before published; Divine Compassion, Brilliance, Genius, Love, Fierceness, Blissfulness revealed in every chapter, every story. Adi Das Heroic struggle and victory with and in His devotees, and, through them, with and in the whole world, came alive in these pages. It became clear that every illusion, false presumption, action of un-love—every aspect of existence in this realm—has been Penetrated, Illumined, and En-Lightened by this Great Avadhoot of our time, via His Heroic Work of Love with His devotees, the most ordinary people, representing every kind and walk of life.
As I turned the last page, I knew in every cell of my body, that this story could only have been enacted by the Very Divine, God Himself. No other being could have wrought such changes, evoked such love, penetrated so deeply the prevailing ego-presumptions, made Himself so vulnerable, yet acted with such selfless courage. The sheer scope of His work in the short period of His life and work are testament to His uniqueness, even amongst the great Spiritual Realizers. In that moment, I knew that the Divine Had Firmly Set His Staff in this world, and that all would come to turn to Him, and that everything in the world has been changed.
I am so grateful to Carolyn Lee for setting this Greatest of Tales to paper; and grateful beyond words that the story was and is there to be told. I invite everyone to partake of this great feast--to read this book, to participate in the unfolding story, and thereby be changed forever.

LEE C. HARRISON
The Promised God-Man Is Here is an outstanding contribution to Spiritual literature. Carolyn Lee takes the reader through the entire development and rise of the religion of Adidam and the epochs of Adi Da Samraj’s work with such clarity and detail that one feels as though one is actually there, living and feeling the intensity and importance of these historic occasions. The inclusion of large portions of Avatar Adi Da’s writings, and testimonies from devotees, provide the reader the opportunity to experience these years from all perspectives.
Dr. Lee’s biography is a great service to current and future generations, and to all who are fortunate enough to be drawn to the Divine Work of Avatar Adi Da Samraj.
