The Mummery Book

Sacred Theatre

For thousands of years, human beings have found interest in literature that deals with ultimate matters.

The theatrical and artistic presentation of that literature has long been the fundamental content of human culture.

Just so, the mode of participation in “The Mummery Book” is fundamentally about drama. It must be participated in, so that you can understand the Great Matter altogether.

—Avatar Adi Da Samraj

The roots of theatre—both Eastern and Western—are founded in worship, as ancient people enacted their prayers, sacred stories, and sacred texts. And, as Adi Da Samraj has said, The Mummery Book is as fundamental to Adidam as the sacred texts and ritual traditions of any of the world’s religions are to them.
