An Overview of
Santosha Adidam

(page 4 of 5)

The second "Circuit" is known (in a few isolated Indian texts) as "Amrita Nadi" ("the Channel of Immortal Nectar"). Amrita Nadi is the root-structure of the entire being, the structure that literally "connects" each apparent individual to the Divine Source. Briefly defined, Amrita Nadi is an S-shaped Circuit between the Primal Matrix of Divine Light ("Located" Infinitely Above the crown of the head of any given individual) and the right side of the heart (a point slightly to the right of the center of the chest, which is the psycho-physical seat, in the individual body-mind, both of the root-knot of egoity and of the potential dissolution of ego in Most Perfect Divine Enlightenment). Although Amrita Nadi is briefly mentioned a few times in the traditional Hindu literature, never before has it been precisely described in terms of its full significance, its actual shape, and its differing function in relation to the causal dimension (in the context of the sixth stage of life) and in the transcendence of the causal dimension (in the context of the seventh stage of life). (See especially the final Essay in Part Four, "The Infinite Divine Current That Shines in the Body-Mind of Man".)

Altogether, Santosha Adidam is a uniquely complete description of the entire human structure and the entire Spiritual process-in the gross, subtle, and causal dimensions of conditional existence, and Prior to all those dimensions-and of the (necessary and inevitable) interrelationship between the human structure and the complete Spiritual process. Thus, Santosha Adidam is a Labor of Love, Offered to you by Avatar Adi Da Samraj, so that you may know exactly how and why the Divine Way of Adidam, the Way of the devotional and Spiritual relationship to Avatar Adi Da Samraj, is the Way of Perfect Satisfaction, Perfect Contentment, and Perfect Searchlessness.

Summary of the contents of Santosha Adidam

First Word As with each of the twenty-three Source-Texts, Santosha Adidam begins with Avatar Adi Da Samraj's First Word, "Do Not Misunderstand Me--I Am Not 'Within' you, but you Are In Me, and I Am Not a Mere 'Man' in the 'Middle' of Mankind, but All of Mankind Is Surrounded, and Pervaded, and Blessed By Me". In this remarkable Essay, Avatar Adi Da Samraj explains that His open Confession of Most Perfect Real-God-Realization is not to be misunderstood as a claim of the Status of the "Creator-God" of conventional religious belief, but, rather, His Divine Self-Confession is to be understood and appreciated as a Free Demonstration of the Fulfillment of esoteric Spiritual practice-a Demonstration of the Most Perfectly Non-Dual Realization of Reality Itself. By virtue of this Free Demonstration, Avatar Adi Da Samraj makes clear that Most Perfect Real-God-Realization (or Divine Enlightenment) is the ultimate Potential and Destiny of all beings.

Prologue "My Divine Disclosure" (also, like First Word, found in all twenty-three Source-Texts) is a poetic epitome of Avatar Adi Da's Divine Self-Revelation. It is His Call to every being to turn to Him at heart and practice the life of devotional surrender in Real God.

Part One "I Am The Avataric Divine Self-Revelation Of The Fundamental Reality (or The 'Radically' Non-Dual Conscious Light Of Self-Evidently Divine Love-Bliss)" is Avatar Adi Da Samraj's Confession of His Divine Identity as Consciousness Itself, the One and Only Reality, and His esoteric Spiritual Instruction that feeling-Contemplation of Him is the Great Secret of the Divine Way of Adidam.

Part Two "I (Alone) Am The Adidam Revelation" is Avatar Adi Da Samraj's fullest elucidation of the uniqueness of His Revelation of the seventh stage Realization. In this extraordinary Essay, Avatar Adi Da Samraj examines His own Course of Divine Re-Awakening in order to Demonstrate how the two primary divisions of the Great Tradition-the Emanationist (or absorptive mystical) Way (associated with the first five stages of life) and the non-Emanationist (or Transcendentalist) Way (associated with the sixth stage of life)-are, in Truth, only different aspects of the great seven-stage process of Most Perfect Real-God-Realization.
