This 1991 version of The Dawn Horse Testament is NOT the final version by Adidam (Adi Da).
“you should not
study any earlier edition of The Dawn Horse Testament (or
any earlier edition of any other of My
“source-Texts”). The final edition is it. There are not
“multi-editions” or “mutil-instructions”.
The current and latest 2004 edition of The Dawn Horse Testament is out of print. It is not entirely “current” with Beloved Adi Da’s final language conventions and the details of His practical Instructions. Since their is no final or official version available Beezone feels it appropriate to use this 1991 version as a form of study with the understanding of the above ‘notice’.
Dawn Horse Testament
The Testament Of Secrets
The Visionary Horse
The image on the cover of The Dawn Horse Testament is a visual summary of the Supreme Wisdom-Teaching of Sri Da Avabhasa, just as The Dawn Horse Testament itself is a verbal summary of that same Supreme Wisdom-Teaching. More than that, this visual image is a representation of Sri Da Avabhasa’s own bodily (human) Form, His Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence, and His Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, and of the “Bright” of Absolute Divine Existence, Who He Is.
Each of the four hooves of the symbolic “Dawn Horse” is gesturing toward one of the four Forms through which devotees progressively acknowledge and Realize Sri Da Avabhasa as the True Heart-Master (and, thus and thereby, acknowledge and Realize the Divine Person).
The right rear foot points toward the Feet of Sri Da Avabhasa’s bodily (human) Form. As the Adept Heart-Teacher and the Truth-Bearer of all Wisdom, Sri Da Avabhasa is Himself the bodily (human) Revelation of the Divine Person.
The left rear foot is raised and points toward the Sacred Fire, which represents Sri Da Avabhasa’s Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence and, thus and thereby, the Always Living and All-Pervading, Love-Blissful Spirit-Current of the Divine Person.
The right front foot points toward the right side of the heart, which is the bodily seat associated with the Realization of Consciousness Itself, or Sri Da Avabhasa’s Very (and Inherently Perfect) State as the Transcendental, and Inherently Spiritual, and Divine Self of all beings.
And the left front foot points up, toward the Divine Star, which points to or Reveals the Brilliant Clear White Heart-Light (or the “Bright”) that is the pre cosmic Divine Source of all conditional manifestation. This Divine Star includes or represents all of Sri Da Avabhasa’s Forms and, thus and thereby, all of the Forms of the Divine Person. In The Dawn Horse Testament, Sri Da Avabhasa Reveals that the Divine Star is His own “Original Apparent Form (or First Visible Sign)”, and that of every conditionally manifested being. And It is the cosmically manifested Sign, or the objective Representation, of the Heart Itself-the Very Divine Person and Self-Condition.
Thus, the Ecstatic attitude of the Horse, with his head arched in Bliss and his hoof gesturing above to the Divine Star, is a visual Symbol of the Realization of the Heart, or the “Bright” Divine Consciousness. This is the Supreme Realization to Which Sri Da Avabhasa Calls all living beings in His Dawn Horse Testament, through feeling-Contemplation of His “Bright” bodily (human) Form, His Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence, and His Very (and Inherently Perfect) State of Divine Being. Sri Da Avabhasa Proclaims:
In My Evident Personal Form, In My Human Form or Revelation-Body, and By Virtue Of My Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Realization Of God, Truth, or Reality, I Am The Revealing Agent and Revelation-Sign Of The Divine Person, Who Is Eternally and everywhere Present As The “Bright” (The Source Of all), The Apparently Objective Divine Star (The First Visible Form Of all), The Self-Radiant All-Pervading Divine Spirit-Presence (The Help Of all), and The Transcendental (or Self-Existing and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self (The Self Of all).
