The Aletheon

On the last day of His human Life, Avatar Adi Da Samraj completed His most pristine and comprehensive text, The Aletheon.

The Revelation Magazine begins to celebrate its publication with excerpts from the text and commentary on its creation — including a video presentation by Avatar Adi Da's senior editorial assistant with extraordinary images of Avatar Adi Da working on The Aletheon. This video is also available through the linked photographs on pages 2 and 3.

The Aletheon

The Divine Avataric Self-Revelation of
His Divine Presence,
Avatar Adi Da Samraj

The First and Foremost Revelation
of the Divine Reality-Truth,
Given by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
to all beings in all times and places

The Aletheon is the Divine Self-Confession of Reality Itself. It is thus a profound gift to all beings — a supreme masterpiece of wisdom, instruction, and Divine Self-Revelation. In combining with The Aletheon, the world is forever able to receive Avatar Adi Da's Transmission-Communication of Reality and Truth.

In The Aletheon — which He Himself designated as His "First and Foremost" Reality-Communication to all — Avatar Adi Da utterly relinquished His previous mode of Self-Submission to human egoity, and made only His own purest Communication of Truth. Such is the unique quality and purity of this greatest of His Teaching Gifts.

The Aletheon includes Avatar Adi Da's "radical" Criticism of ego-life and His penetrating Consideration of true and false understandings of God, religion, and human existence altogether. It includes His unique Revelation of the Divinely Enlightened Condition and His Divine Self-Confession of His own Purpose and Work. And it includes His summary description of the practice He Offers to all who are moved to become His devotees.

This final great writing-labor of love in a Lifetime of Boundless Service to all is more than a book. Avatar Adi Da ecstatically proclaims that The Aletheon is His Perfect Revelation of Himself, the Divine Person of Reality:

The Aletheon is not merely a Book of Teachings. Yes, It is Teachings, but It is a Self-Revelation of My Own Person and State. So The Aletheon is of Me, As Me, about Me — and Is Me.

— His Divine Presence, Avatar Adi Da Samraj

Thus, The Aletheon is the Supreme Scripture for all time — the final Gift of Word from the very Divine Reality Itself, who Avatarically Appeared on Earth as Avatar Adi Da Samraj.

Jonathan Condit, senior editorial assistant to Avatar Adi Da for more than fifteen years, describes the unique nature of the gift of The Aletheon:

During the final three years of a Lifetime that had been utterly devoted to the Communication of Truth, Avatar Adi Da created His supreme Scripture.

Day after day, month after month, Avatar Adi Da sustained a vast flow of spontaneous writing — moved by His indefatigable Impulse to "say everything" to everyone.

In keeping with the unique and profound purpose of this final book, Avatar Adi Da eventually chose to name it The Aletheon (pronounced "a-LAY-thee-on"). The title was His own coinage, based on the ancient Greek word for "Truth" — "Aletheia". Thus, this last and greatest book by Avatar Adi Da is, simply, "the Truth Book".

The early years of Avatar Adi Da's active Teaching-Work had been an astounding demonstration of His willingness to Submit Himself to ordinary egos, and to Work by reflecting egos to themselves.

With His final Work on the title page of The Aletheon, on the morning of His Divine Mahasamadhi, He forever brought to a close His final great writing-labor of Love.

Over 2300 pages, The Aletheon is available in two editions: a single-volume hardbound edition and an eight-volume softbound edition. The contents of the two editions are identical — including the full text of The Aletheon, over one hundred photographs of Avatar Adi Da (most of which are published here for the first time), a full biography, and extensive reference materials.

Both editions come in a beautiful slipcase adorned with the Parama-Sapta-Na Logo-image, created by Avatar Adi Da Samraj. Details about purchase can be found below.
