A Note About Avatar Adi Da's Unique Use of Language

The writings of Adi Da Samraj employ conventions of capitalization, punctuation, and underlining that differ in various ways from standards commonly applied in written American English.

These unique conventions, which sometimes vary even within the separate sections of a text, are an intrinsic part of Adi Da's Communication. They have been developed by Him to support His Revelation that it is the dualistic and separative point of view of the ego that prevents the Realization of Reality — a point of view that is also the basis for ordinary speech and written language. Adi Da Samraj writes,

The conventions of everyday speech and writing are based on a social convention that is, in Reality Itself, untrue. The "I" of the presumed separate and independent "self" is an illusory (or, in Reality Itself, non-existing) and abstract... identity, by which.... all common spoken and written language is proposed.

His writing, He says, "is not spoken or communicated from — or, Ultimately, even to — the egoic "point of view". Therefore, He says, a "unique convention" was developed for His writing that is a visual representation or "picture" of a form of speech that is not based on egoity.

It is the intent of Adi Da that this form of the writing will enable you to be "Released from having to exercise the egoic vision and its separate and separative "point of view". "The unusual conventions", He writes, "interrupt the common flow of mind, and Signal the Heart of 'you' that this moment Is The Necessary Instant of Self-Awakening- — to Be As 'you' Are."

Additionally, those who are formal devotees of Avatar Adi Da use in their writings capitalized pronouns and other words as a sign of respect for Adi Da and the Divine Reality that He has Revealed.
