1982: Beyond the Cultic Tendency
I Am the Divine Heart-Master. I am not a Surrogate "God", but I Am the Proof of Real God and of the Way of Divine Self-Realization. In My Avatarically-Born bodily (human) Divine Form, I Am the Avataric Divine Demonstration, the Avataric Divine Sign, the Avataric Agent of Divine Transmission, and the Avataric Divine Awakener of those who are willing to surrender their egoic self-preoccupation in right, true, and full, and really ego-transcending, devotion to Me.
The Way of Adidam is the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Way to live in Freedomnot to be bound by separate and separative self, or by conditional Nature as a whole. Therefore, the ego-transcending devotional relationship to Me is the Context and the Means of Free Divine Self-Realization, and not a justification for popular ego-culture, childish dependency, adolescent reactivity, merely conventional (or socially idealistic, and ego-serving) social behavior, or even any of the methods of ego-fulfillment, or even any goal or tendency of the self-deluded, and cult-seeking, and cult-making, and cult-preserving, and even (sometimes, but only egoically) cult-criticizing, and always self-serving and separative ego (which is always only "Narcissus", or the self-contracted body-mind of any and every ordinary "I" of humankind).

Ruchira Avatara Gita: The essential Text on the ecstatic practice of the devotional relationship to Adi Da Samraj. In this Text, Adi Da Samraj explains how devotion to a living human Adept-Realizer has always been the source of true religion, and distinguishes true Guru-devotion from cultism.
