An Overview of
(page 5 of 5)
In the fourth Essay of Part Four ("Vision, Audition, and Touch in The Process of Ascending Meditation in The Way Of Adidam"), Avatar Adi Da describes the practice of the ascending Yoga in relation to the various visual or auditory or tactile phenomena that may arise. He describes how the great mandala of the cosmic domain may appear in vision. And He describes how the transition from the ascending Yoga to the "Perfect Practice" occurs in the Way of Adidam.
In the fifth Essay of Part Four ("The 'Thumbs' Is The Fundamental Sign Of The Avataric Crashing-Down Of My Divine Person"), Avatar Adi Da describes His unique Revelation of what He named (as a child) the "Thumbs"--the overwhelming Divine Descent of His Hridaya-Shakti. He explains the significance of the "Thumbs" relative to the process of maturing beyond the descending (or frontal) Yoga in the Way of Adidam.
In the Talk which concludes Part Four ("The Head-Pressure of My Avataric Divine Spiritual Presence"), Avatar Adi Da examines the two fundamental errors that beginning practitioners of Adidam tend to make when receiving His Darshan (the Blessing of beholding His Divine-Spirit-Power-Transmitting bodily human Form), and He describes the true signs of responsiveness to His Spiritual Presence.
Part Four marks the conclusion of Avatar Adi Da's summary "Consideration" of Spirit-Baptism. The book concludes with two sections that bring further general "Considerations" to the reader.
In Part Five, "The Heart-Summary of Adidam" (a brief Essay that is included in all twenty-three "Source-Texts"), Avatar Adi Da Samraj summarizes the profound implications of His Statement that the Way of Adidam is the Way of Devotion to Him "As Self-Condition, rather than As exclusively Objective Other".
The Epilogue, "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's Confession of His Divine Self-Nature, Which He Calls all beings to Realize.
Altogether, this remarkable Source-Text is Filled with Avatar Adi Da's Divine Instruction and Blessing-Force. As you may discover for yourself by studying this "Source-Text", the Miracle of Avatar Adi Da's Divine Word is that It not only brings unparalleled clarity relative to the True Nature of Spiritual Baptism, but His Word is Itself a direct Source of His Free Transmission of Divine Spirit-Power.
