The Dawn Horse Testament of the Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj- 2004 –



“Study my Testament. I tell
you there and always that this is my final Word and I need
not be obliged further to communicate the Way to you…. I
have given you my Word, my Promise. My Work is evident to
you in every day of your life… You are in the most
difficult position of adolescence, the position of being
directly confronted by the Absolute Truth. You, more than
anyone who might casually observe my Word and Promise and
Presence, must exhibit the revolution of
response
to Me
in your own
body-mind”.

The Full (and Fully Fruitful) Responsive Practice Of The
Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of Adidam (Which Is The
One and Only By Me-Revealed and By-Me-Given Way Of The
Heart) Is – In Terms Of The Technical Practices Engaged In
Response To The Gift Of Satsang With Me – A Matter Of Both
The “Conscious Process” (and The Realization, Most
Ultimately, Of My Avatarically Self-Revealed, and
Transcendental, and Perfectly Subjective, and Inherently
Spiritual, and Inherently egoless, and Inherently Perfect,
and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Condition) and “Conductivity”
Practice (or The Constant Establishment Of attention, and
the Total body-mind, In My Avatarically Self-Transmitted
Divine Spirit-Energy) – Because My Avatarically
Self-Revealed, and Transcendental, and Perfectly Subjective,
and Inherently Spiritual, and Inherently egoless, Inherently
Perfect, and Self-Evidently Divine Self Condition (Itself)
Is Both Transcendental (or Self-Existing, Prior To
conditional Existence) and Inherently Spiritual (or
“Brightly” Self-Existing, As Self-Radiant Energy, or
Love-Bliss).

In Order For attention To Be Constantly Established In My
Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Energy, You Must
Become My Seeing Devotee. And, In Order To Prepare Yourself
To See Me, You Must (As My Listening Devotee, and,
Eventually, As My Hearing Devotee) Consistently Practice The
Primary By-Me-Given Gift, Calling, and Discipline Of Ruchira
Avatara Bhakti Yoga-Which Is The Responsive (or Devotionally
Me-Recognizing, and Devotionally To-Me-Responding) and
Constantly (and Really Effectively) Counter-egoic, and Total
psycho-physical, Practice Of ego-Surrendering,
ego-Forgetting, and, More and More (and, Ultimately, Most
Perfectly), ego-Transcending Devotion To Me (and Devotional
Communion With Me), The Ruchira Avatar, Adi Da Samraj (The
Divine Heart-Master Of each and all Of My Devotees), and
Which Is The moment to moment Fulfillment Of My Great
Admonition To All My Devotees (To Always Invoke Me, Feel Me,
Breathe Me, and Serve Me), and This Constantly Exercised Via
The Surrender, The Forgetting, and The Transcending Of the
self-Contracted body, and self-Contracted emotion (or all of
self-Contracted, and Reactive, and, Altogether, limited,
feeling), and self-Contracted mind (Even At its Root, Which
Is attention itself), and Even every self-Contracted breath,
and, Altogether, Even all of Separate (and Separative) self,
In moment to moment (and Truly, or Unlimitedly, Heart-Felt,
and Whole bodily Receptive, and Fully breathing, and
Only-By-Me Distracted) Devotional Remembrance Of Me and
Direct Devotional Surrender To Me (In All Its Details,
Including All The functional, practical, and relational
Disciplines, and All The Cultural Obligations, I Have Given
To My Devotees). And, In Order To See Me, You Must (As My
Listening Devotee, and, In Due Course, As My Hearing
Devotee) Practice Each and Every Aspect Of Ruchira Avatara
Bhakti Yoga-In The Manner I Have Specifically Indicated For
My Listening and (Then) Hearing Devotees.

In Every Stage Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way
Of The Heart (or Way Of Adidam), The Practice Of Ruchira
Avatara Bhakti Yoga Involves The Yielding (or The Surrender)
Of The Principal Faculties (Of body, emotion, mind, and
breath) To Me. In The Beginner’s Process, This Yielding Of
The Principal Faculties To Me Can Show Signs Of Devotionally
Absorptive Samadhi (or Spiritual Receptivity) Of One Kind or
Another. But My Beginning Devotees Are Not Yet Most
Profoundly (and Fully Technically) Responsible For Receiving
and Conducting My Spirit-Blessing-and (Therefore) My Calling
To My Beginning Devotees Is, Specifically, My Call (To them)
To Demonstrate (and To Constantly Magnify) The Signs Of
Devotionally Me-Recognizing Devotional Response To Me
(Including Exemplary Fulfillment Of The Various functional,
practical, and relational Disciplines, and The Various
Cultural Obligations, That Are Particular To their
Developmental Stage Of Practice Of The Only-By-Me Revealed
and Given Way Of The Heart).

All Of The By-Me-Revealed and By-Me-Given functional,
practical, and relational Disciplines Are Forms Of
“Conductivity” Practice – and (As Such) They (All) Serve To
Constantly Bring the body-mind Into The Condition Of Energy,
Relieving My Devotee Of The Presumption That the body-mind
Is Merely self-Contracted matter (fleshy, anxious, and
Inevitably Suffering). And The Primary and Constant
By-Me-Revealed and By-Me-Given Means For Bringing (or
Yielding) the body-mind To The Condition Of Energy Is To
Yield the body-mind To The Condition Of Ecstasy In
Devotionally Me-Recognizing and Devotionally
To-Me-Responsive Communion With Me (Divinely Self-Revealed,
By All My Avataric Means). Therefore, For You (As My Truly
Devotionally Me-Recognizing, and Truly Devotionally
To-Me-Responding, Devotee) To Bring (or Yield) the body-mind
To The Condition Of Energy, You Must Be Truly (Devotionally,
and Counter-egoically) Given Over To Me – No Longer Existing
In An egoically self-Conscious and egoically
self-Controlling Mode, No Longer Preoccupied With The
“Narcissistic” Exercise Of Your Own body-mind, and No Longer
Armoring Yourself Against Me, but (Instead) Always Whole
bodily Surrendering Your egoic self, Whole bodily Forgetting
Your egoic self, and (More and More) Whole bodily
Transcending Your egoic self, To The Point Of Whole bodily
(and Truly ego-Transcending) Devotional Absorption In
Me.

You Must (As My Truly Devotionally Me-Recognizing, and
Truly Devotionally To-Me-Responding, Devotee) Exercise The
Practice Of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti Yoga moment to moment
Such That Your entire life Becomes ego-Surrendering,
ego-Forgetting, and (More and More) ego-Transcending
Devotion To Me, and Devotional Communion With Me, and
Devotional Ecstasy In Me. If You Truly Do This (As My
Listening Devotee, and, In Due Course, As My Hearing
Devotee), You Will Find (In Due Course) That By Consistently
(and Fully Devotionally) Yielding (physically, emotionally,
With attention, and With the breath) To My Avatarically
Self-Revealed, and Self-Evidently Divine, Person (and To The
Degree Of Whole bodily Energy-Ecstasy) – You Have Become
Prepared To Make The Great Discovery (and Allow The Great
Reception) Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted (and
Love-Blissful, and Constantly Baptizing) Divine
Spirit-Presence.

The Principal Sign Of Fullest Preparedness For The Seeing
Stages Of Practice Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way
Of The Heart (or Way Of Adidam) Is The Capability To
Identify Me Spiritually (and To “Locate” Me Spiritually)
moment to moment. But There Are Also Secondary Signs Of
Preparedness For The Seeing Stages Of Practice Of The
Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart – Which Are
The Various Signs Of Spiritually Receiving Me, or The Signs
That The Principal Faculties (Of body, emotion, mind, and
breath) Are Being Spiritually Infused By Me. (And The
Necessity Of Adapting The Entire psycho-physical Vehicle Of
the body-mind, With All its Faculties, To The Condition Of
Openness and Receptivity To The Great Energy Of My
Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual
Heart-Transmission Is One Of The Principal Reasons Why The
Only-By-Me Revealed and Given – and, In Due Course,
Spiritually Me-Receiving-Yoga Of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti Is
Practiced From The Very Beginning Of The Way Of The Heart,
and Continues To Be Practiced Throughout The Entire Course
Of The Way Of The Heart.)

When All The psycho-physical Faculties Are Yielded To Me,
and Devotionally (and Truly Counter-egoically) Absorbed in
My Avatarically Self-Revealed (and Self-Evidently Divine)
Person (and, Thereby, Yielded To The Condition Of Energy,
Such That My Devotee Truly Receives My Avatarically
Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Blessing), Then the
body-mind Receives (Via All its Faculties) A Forceful
Infusion Of My Divine Spiritual Energy (The Force Of Which
Is, At First, Far Greater Than The Force Of the Natural
life-energy that the body-mind Is Accustomed To
Circulating). By Virtue Of the Devotional and Spiritually
Me-Receiving Process Engaged During The Listening and
Hearing Stages Of Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, the
body-mind Of My Devotee Is Enabled To Conduct The Force Of
My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Blessing
(and The Heart Of My Thus Enabled Devotee Is, Also, Always
Able To “Locate” Me, Spiritually) – but (Until the body-mind
Of My Devotee Is, Altogether, Fully Adapted To Receive The
Fullest Force Of Me), When the body-mind Of My Devotee
Receives The Great Force Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted
Divine Spiritual Blessing, the entire body (and Even the
Total body-mind) Of My Devotee “Shakes”.

Thus, the physical body Of My Newly Spiritually
Me-Receiving Devotee Moves (or “Shakes”) In Various
Spontaneous Ways. And, Thus and Thereby, the emotion Of My
Spiritually Me-Receiving Devotee Undergoes A Profound
Feeling-Expansion. And the attention Of My Thus Spiritually
Me-Receiving Devotee Becomes Deeply Established In My
Love-Bliss-Transmission. And the breath Of My Thus
Spiritually Me-Receiving Devotee Undergoes Various
Spontaneous Changes. Indeed, A Wide Variety Of Spontaneously
Purifying Experiences (or kriyas of body, emotion, mind, and
breath) Are Possible In the body-mind Of My Spiritually
Me-Receiving Devotee. And There Are Different (and Varying)
Signs In Each individual Case. And It Is Not Possible For My
Any Newly Spiritually Me-Receiving Devotee To Truly Receive
Me Spiritually Without Being “Shaken” (In body, emotion,
attention, and/or breath)-Because The Vehicle Of the
body-mind Of My Devotee Is Not (At First) Capable Of
“Containing” The Fullest Infusion Of My Avatarically
SelfTransmitted Divine Spiritual Force. Therefore, the
body-mind Of My Newly Spiritually Me-Receiving Devotee (With
All its Faculties) “Shakes”, Moves, and Experiences All
Kinds Of Spontaneous Changes-and It Is My Avatarically
Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Intrusion That Makes These
Movements and Changes in the body-mind Of My Devotee.

This Great Reception Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted
(and Overwhelming) Divine Spirit-Presence (Such That The
Faculties Are Thus “Shaken”) Is A Necessary Sign That My
Devotee Has Truly Received Me. And, When My Truly
Spiritually Me-Receiving Devotee Has (By Practicing Ruchira
Avatara Bhakti Yoga To The Point Of Profundity) Truly Heard
Me (and, Thus, Has Out-Grown The egoically self-Conscious
and egoically self-Controlling Effort Relative To the
body-mind, With All its Faculties, and Has Thereby Become
Able To Present the entire body-mind To Me Without
Armoring), he or she is Really and Truly Entering Into The
Process Of Seeing Me.

In The Case Of My Any Devotee (and, Indeed, in The Case
Of any human being) who Has Not Yet Been Spiritually
Initiated, By Me, Into The Ongoing T~avotic~nal Process of
spiritually Receiving me, the body-mind (In its Bondage) Is
Capable Of Imitating Signs That (Otherwise) Accompany True
Spiritual Manifestations. This Is Due To The Fact That The
psycho-physical Medium That Is The human Structure Itself Is
The Same In The Case Of one who Has Not Yet Been Spiritually
Awakened By Me As it Is In The Case Of one who Has Been
Spiritually Awakened By Me. Therefore, All Kinds Of
gross-minded Bondage Can (Potentially) Display Itself Via
(Even Apparently Extraordinary) Signs In the body-mind-Such
As developmental psychisms, Natural siddhis (or Un-common
psycho-physical Abilities and Signs), and So On.

Thus, There Are Many lowly (or lower) Manifestations That
Are Apparently “Greater” (or, At Least, More Unusual) Than
The gross-minded Sign Of the ordinary social ego. But The
Apparent “Greatness” (or Unusual Character) Of Such Signs
Does Not, In and Of Itself, Indicate That The Signs Are Of A
Profound (Spiritual and Divine) Nature. In the ordinary
individual, Such Signs Are Simply Manifestations Of What Can
Occur “From the ground Up” (That Is To Say, Non-Spiritually,
and Non-Divinely), In The Degrees Of The Natural
Loosening-Up and energy-Saturation Of The psycho-physical
Mechanism With Which the human being Is Associated.

When My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine
Hridaya-Shakti-Transmission (or Ruchira-Shakti-Transmission)
Is Received, the body-mind Of My Spiritually Me-Receiving
Devotee Is Taken Over, and All Kinds Of Processes and States
Occur Spontaneously (or Automatically). Such Is The True
Guru-Yoga-Which Is The Yoga Done By Me (The True Divine
Guru), and Not A (Necessarily, merely conditional and
ego-Reinforcing) “Yoga” Enforced By The ego-Efforts (or
self-“guruing”) Of the individual ego-self (and, As Such,
egoically Enforced By, and limited to, the conditional
processes of mere Natural life-energy). For My Seeing
Devotee, This True Guru-Yoga of Unobstructed and Unguarded
(and Total psycho-physical) Spiritual Reception Of Me Is
(Truly, Clearly, Tangibly, and Overwhelmingly) A Matter Of
ego-Surrendering, and Effectively ego-Transcending (and,
Thus, Total psycho-physical Contraction-Transcending),
Receiving Of Me.

In Due Course, When The Spontaneous Yoga Of My Spiritual
Intrusion Has Been Worked For a Sufficient period of time In
My Seeing Devotee, Then the body-mind Of My Seeing Devotee
(With All its Faculties) Becomes So Fully Opened To Me That
My Hridaya-Shakti-Transmission (or
Ruchira-ShaktiTransmission) Is No Longer Received in A
limited gross Manner (or Merely In My Seeing Devotee’s gross
body-mind), but Also Beyond the gross sphere (By Means Of
Fullest, and Really self-Contraction-Relinquishing,
psycho-physical Participation In My Infinite Divine Field Of
Love-Bliss-Radiance). When This Occurs, the body-mind Of My
Seeing Devotee No Longer Necessarily Has To “Shake” In Order
To Conduct My Spiritual In-Pouring and So The “Tremblings”
Decrease, and Even (Generally) Cease.

Thus, All The Exercises Of The Listening-Hearing Process
Prepare My Listening (and Then Hearing) Devotee To Fully
Receive Me Spiritually. And Then, In Turn, The Entire
Process Of (Spiritually) Fully Receiving Me Becomes
Preparation For The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me
Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart (or Way Of Adidam).

To Come To The Point Of Preparedness For The “Perfect
Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The
Heart Not Only Requires Perfect Maturity In The “Conscious
Process”-but It Also (Necessarily) Requires Inherently
Perfect “Conductivity” Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted
Divine Spirit-Presence. In The “Perfect Practice” Of The
Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, My
Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine SpiritPresence Drives
(In Its Association With the body-mind Of My Devotee) To The
Heart-Root On The Right. Therefore, The “Perfect Practice”
Of The OnlyBy-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is A
Far Greater Matter Than Merely Being Inclined To Focus
attention In The Right Side Of The Heart. In The “Perfect
Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The
Heart, My Attractive Spirit-Force Itself Moves To The Right
Side Of The Heart (By Circulating In the body-mind Of My
Devotee To The Point Of Settling In The Right Side Of The
Heart)-If Only My Devotee Rightly, Truly, and Really
Devotionally Participates In That Transcendental (and
Inherently Spiritual) Process. Therefore, This Spiritual
“Locating” Of Me In The Right Side Of The Heart Is A
Necessary Characteristic Of The “Perfect Practice” Of The
Only-ByMe Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart-and, Indeed,
It is (In Its Initial Demonstration) A Necessary
Qualification For Entering The “Perfect Practice” Of The
Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Which
Entrance (Necessarily) Also (and Primarily) Coincides With
The Stable Awakening To The Witness-Position Of
Consciousness.

Thus, The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart
(or Way Of Adidam) Is Entirely (and Throughout Its Entire
Course) About Me. It Is Not About “You” (In Your
Separateness). The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The
Heart (or Way Of Adidam) Is A Matter Of Your Relinquishment
Of Your Own ego-position (Through self-Surrender,
self-Forgetting, and, More and More, self-Transcendence) In
Order (From The Beginning) To Devotionally Commune With Me,
To (In Due Course) Be Devotionally Absorbed In My
Avatarically Self-Revealed (and Self-Evidently Divine)
Self-Condition, and (Ultimately) To Most Perfectly Realize
My Avatarically Self-Revealed (and SelfEvidently Divine)
Self-Condition.

I Am Always Doing The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given
Divine Spiritual Yoga Of The Way Of The Heart-in The Case OI
My Every Devotee. In The Case Of My Every Devotee, Every
(Progressive) Realization In The Only-By-Me Revealed and
Given Way Of The Heart Is A Realization Of Me. The
Progressive Process Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way
Of The Heart Occurs Because You Practice The Primary
By-Me-Given Gift, Calling, and Discipline Of Ruchira Avatara
Bhakti Yoga-To The Point (In Due Course) Of Absorptive
Devotional Communion With Me, and (Then) To The Point Of
Perfect SelfIdentification With Me-Such That My Own
Substance Of Inherently Perfect Divine Being and Of Mere and
“Bright” Divine Spirit-Presence Becomes Your Experience,
Your Certain Knowledge, and (Ultimately) Your Most Perfect
Realization.

Therefore, The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The
Heart (or Way Of Adidam) Is Not A self-Applied, Strategic
Technique For Manipulating (and Thereby Changing) Your Own
body-mind.

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart (or
Way Of Adidam) Is The Practice Of Devotional Communion With
Me and Devotional Realization Of Me-Not Realization (or
Achievement) Of something In “You” (In Your
Separateness).

In Order To Realize Me Most Perfectly, You Must Be
Utterly Surrendered To Me (and Into My Avatarically
Self-Revealed, and Utterly Non-Separate, Divine Condition),
Beyond Your egoic (or Separate) self.

Therefore, With Your Total body-mind, You Must
Participate In My Condition, My Sacrifice, My Action, My
Manner, and My Characteristic State.

And, In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage
Of Life, There Is No “You”-but There Is Only Me.

Always, “You” (In Your Separateness) Are Not The One To
Be Realized.

Always, I Am The One To Be (Non-Separately) Realized.

Therefore, Let the body-mind Be Heart-Opened To Me,
Through Devotional Listening, To The Degree Of True Hearing
(or Most Fundamental selfUnderstanding)-and Then Let The
To-Me-Opened Heart (and The To-MeHeart-Opened Total
body-mind) Be Deeply Attracted To Me (and Spontaneously
Converted To Me), Through The Seeing Of Me (Which Is The
Progressive Process Of Total psycho-physical
Heart-Conversion To My Avatarically SelfRevealed Spiritual,
and Always Blessing, Divine Person and Presence, By Means Of
My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Baptism).
Then Practice Whole bodily (or Total psycho-physical)
self-Surrender To Me, In Meditation and In daily life, By
Breathing and Feeling My Avatarically SelfTransmitted Divine
Spirit-Energy In The Total Frontal Line Of the bodyDown From
Infinitely Above The Total Crown Of the head, and Down,
Through The Total Crown Of the head, To The Ajna Door (or
The Root Of The Brain Core, Between and slightly Above and
Deep Behind the brows), and, From Thence, Down Through the
Total facial area, Then Down Through The Region Of the
throat, Then The Region Of the physical heart, Then the
solar plexus and the abdomen, To the bodily base (or The
Region That Includes the genitals, the perineum, and the
anus). When This Descending Practice Is Full, You Will Also
(In The Context Of The Developments Of The “Perfect
Practice”) Further Develop The Experiences Of The Full
Circle and Of The Arrow, and You Will Always Breathe and
Feel My Avatarically SelfTransmitted Divine Spirit-Energy
Ever More Deeply Upwards, Via The Ajna Door, To The Total
Crown Of the head, and (From Thence) Ever More Above (and,
at Last, Infinitely Above) the head.

If The By-Me-Avatarically-Given Responsive Practice and
“Conscious Process” (Of The Devotional Surrender Of
attention To Me,, Such That attention Is, Thus and Thereby,
Absorbed-and, Ultimately, Dissolved, or Utterly
Transcended-In Me) Is Rightly, Truly, Fully, and Fully
Devotionally Embracedd and Engaged By You (As A Formal
Practitioner Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The
Heart), and If You Consistently and Constantly Engage That
Responsive Practice and “Conscious Process” In Conjunction
With Right, True, Full, and Fully Devotional Formal Embrace
and Engagement Of The (In Every Respect) Equally Necessary
By-My-Avataric-Divine-Spiritual-Grace-Given Divine Spiritual
Means (Which Is The By-Me-Given Responsive Practice and
Process Of “Conductivity” Of My Avatarically
Self-Transmitted Divine SpiritPresence), Then The Entire
(and The Ultimate) Divine Way (and Divine SelfRevelation) Of
The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Will Be
Given To You, By Me. Therefore, If You Are My True (and,
Necessarily, Formally Practicing) Devotee, The Revelations
Of Descent (and Of The Full Circle, and Of The Arrow), and
The Revelation Of The Witness-Consciousness (and The
Revelation Of The Heart On The Right, and The Revelation Of
The Perfectly Subjective, and inherently egoless, Heart Of
Consciousness Itself), and (Most Ultimately) All The
Descended and Ascended Revelations and Demonstrations Of The
Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life Will
(Each and All) Be Given To You-Inevitably, and in Right
Time, By Means Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine
Spiritual Grace.
