About the Adidam Library
Adi Da Samraj created the Adidam Library, based physically at The Mountain of Attention Sanctuary in northern California, “in order to provide a basic, inclusive, and comprehensive (but not overlong) representation (and Revelation) of the entire Great Tradition (or common Wisdom-Inheritance) of mankind.”
The core collection of the Adidam Library is The Basket of Tolerance, 17,000 books, videos, and audio recordings. It is organized uniquely by Adi Da Samraj to communicate the major points of view of human culture in terms of the Seven Stages of Life, which in turn reflect the inherent structure of the human body-mind.
The Adidam Library now houses the world’s foremost collection of esoteric Spiritual literature from the Great Tradition.
“The Basket Of Tolerance contains and comprehends an essential gathering of traditional and modern literature. I have selected, arranged, introduced, and commented upon the many books (and other materials) listed here, in order to provide a basic, inclusive, and comprehensive (but not overlong) representation (and Revelation) of the entire Great Tradition (or common Wisdom-Inheritance) of mankind. Therefore, if it is embraced in its totality, The Basket Of Tolerance will prove itself to be a useful and valuable resource for right study and right understanding of the historical traditions of truly human culture, practical self-discipline, perennial religion, universal religious mysticism, esoteric (but now openly communicated) Spirituality, Transcendental Wisdom, and would-be Most Perfect (or Divine) Enlightenment.
“My intention relative to the documents included in this essential gathering is that they should be studied with discrimination, and in the context of formal, guided study (however brief and general, or, otherwise, prolonged, extensive, and detailed). Some individuals, because they are expected to serve a role of instructive communication in relation to others, must necessarily engage this formal study both intensively and extensively (to the degree that their service requires), whereas most individuals must (most likely) only acquire a basic discriminative overview of the Great Tradition (sufficient to relieve them of provincial and uninformed views and to equip them with a basic capability to understand the essentials of traditional Wisdom). Also, optimally (and as is traditional), this (and any such) formal, guided study should be engaged in the context of a life established in (or, at least, preparing for) a comprehensive culture of religious discipline and practice. Therefore, The Basket Of Tolerance is especially (but, certainly, not exclusively) Given for use by practitioners (and by those preparing–or, otherwise, aspiring–to be practitioners) of religious (and, especially, esoteric religious) discipline and practice. And, most especially, The Basket Of Tolerance is Given for use by practitioners (and by those preparing–or, otherwise, aspiring–to be practitioners) of Adidam–Which is the Comprehensive and All-Completing Way I have Revealed and Demonstrated for the sake of all and All, and Which I have thoroughly Described in My twenty-three “Source-Texts” of Divine Self-Revelation and Divine Heart-Instruction.”
