The Gift of Truth Itself
The Ever-Living Means Whereby Everyone Can Realize Truth, or Perfect Happiness
The Gift of Truth Itself is an engaging compilation of selections from The Aletheon—Avatar Adi Da’s final and summary masterwork—that leads the reader through a penetrating consideration about Truth and about the Way to Realize Truth.
The starting point for Avatar Adi Da’s examination of Truth Itself is that everyone already has a tacit (or intuitive) sense of the Truth—because the Truth, or the true nature of Reality, is the native State of everyone and everything…. Yet the true nature of Reality remains only an intuition, rather than a full enjoyment or realization, in almost everyone’s case. Avatar Adi Da points out that fullest Realization of Truth (or Reality) is “absolutely uncommon”, and most people are unaware of even the possibility of such Realization. In The Gift of Truth Itself, Avatar Adi Da explains why this is so, and He offers the great process by which anyone and everyone can actually Realize the Truth, thereby Realizing Liberation from all suffering and limitation.
—from the introduction by Brian O’Mahony
The beginning of the book presents a sampling of Avatar Adi Da’s illuminating Wisdom on the cultural, religious, and social forces that have shaped Western presumptions about Truth and Reality. He explains that the false and limiting notions that comprise our cultural inheritance actively work against Realization of Reality—until they are understood and transcended.
Having considered what presumptions limit humankind in the process of Spiritual growth, Avatar Adi Da describes what serves the process of Truth Realization: namely, the great esoteric tradition of devotion to the Adept-Realizer, or Spiritual Master.
