An Overview of Eleutherios

(Page 3 of 4)

The Prologue and Parts One through Four of Eleutherios form an opening group of Essays which introduce the Way of Adidam, explicating the uniqueness of Adidam and its relationship to the Great Tradition as a whole. In particular, Part Two, "I (Alone) Am The Adidam Revelation", is Avatar Adi Da Samraj's fullest elucidation of the uniqueness of His Revelation of Most Perfect Real-God-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 of mankind—the Emanationist (or absorptive mystical, or Spirit-Baptism) 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 seven-stage process of Most Perfect Real-God-Realization.

Part Five, the principal Text of Eleutherios, is Avatar Adi Da Samraj's summary of Adidam as it is to be practiced in the ultimate stages of the process of Most Perfect Real-God-Realization. In the first three sections of Part Five—"Eleutherios", "What Is Consciousness?", and "Truth, Reality, and Real God"—Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj "Considers" the greatest questions ever posed by humanity: What Is Freedom? What Is Consciousness? What Is Truth? What Is Reality? What Is God? In Addressing these questions, Avatar Adi Da Samraj Reveals the True Nature of Consciousness Itself and of Happiness Itself, and He Describes the nature of "sin" (or egoic un-Enlightenment) and the bondage inherent in all seeking. In the fourth section, "The 'Perfect Practice'", Avatar Adi Da Samraj describes the unfolding of the ultimate stages in the process in which Divine Freedom is Realized. In the final section, "Freedom", He draws together the essence of His entire Teaching on what it means to Realize True Happiness and Liberation, beyond all the illusions of the ego.

Part Six, "The One and True 'Radical' Way Of Adidam", is Avatar Adi Da Samraj's most concise description of the "radical" nature of the "Perfect Practice" of Adidam.

Parts Seven through Ten are an extended examination of the True Nature of Consciousness and the unique process by which it is (ultimately) Realized.

One of the supreme secrets Avatar Adi Da Samraj Reveals about the seventh stage of life (or Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization Itself) is that it does not merely come at the "end" of the progression of the first six stages of life. Indeed, the seventh stage Realization must be "available" from the beginning of the Way of Adidam if it is to be Perfectly Realized at last. This means, in effect, that the Way of Adidam is a process that is at once progressive and instantaneous. It is a process in which all the limits of the first six stages of life are to be purified and released in the always present intuition of Divine Freedom Itself.

Therefore, as Eleutherios, the Perfect Liberator, Avatar Adi Da Samraj also Reveals a startlingly new perspective on the social and political bondage inherent in all collective activity. Avatar Adi Da Samraj does not espouse any efforts to "utopianize" the conditions of the world—for, as He points out, it is impossible for the world (which is inherently a place of change and mortality) to become utopia. Nor does He support the tendency (commonly displayed by traditional esoteric religious and Spiritual practitioners) to dissociate from the realities of the earlier stages of life. Rather, Avatar Adi Da Samraj proposes a "radical" new human politics—based upon the (necessarily religious) formation of human-scale cooperative community.
