Editorial Reviews

Review

Green Gorilla is a wonderfully clear presentation of simple, practical instruction on how to follow a balanced and effective raw diet. Beyond that, what makes this book truly unique is Adi Da Samraj's invaluable wisdom about the importance and significance of the raw diet--in the context of the life of spiritual practice, and for humankind as a whole. --Jennifer Cornbleet, author of Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People

Green Gorilla is an amazing book because it is simple yet comprehensive at the same time. Being the author of several raw food books myself, I found that I couldn't put this book down. Avatar Adi Da Samraj powerfully conveys the numerous benefits of the raw food diet. I am especially impressed with the way he ties overeating with ego-bound addiction to pleasure. I recommend that everyone read this book. --Victoria Boutenko, author of Green for Life

About the Author

On November 27, 2008, Adi Da Samraj, departed from the body. He passed on to humankind a legacy of inexhaustible profundity and limitless Blessing-Power. Adi Da's primary gift is his own Eternal Transcendental Spiritual Being. The primary purpose of his human lifetime was to establish the means by which any and all beings could be truly connected to him and in devotional communion with him. Thus, he worked with utmost intensity, throughout his entire life, to develop and establish his Transcendental Spiritual Way.

Adi Da's literary, philosophical, and practical writings consist of over sixty published books including The Knee of Listening, his Spiritual Autobiography, The Dawn Horse Testament, his magisterial revelation of the entire Spiritual Process from beginning to end, and The Aletheon, his final (and first and foremost) book. In addition to his writings, Adi Da gave thousands of hours of recorded discourse. Many discourses have been published by The Dawn Horse Press on CD and DVD.

Adi Da was a prolific artist, producing a remarkable body of work in different media. He was invited to show his work in a solo exhibition at the 2007 Venice Biennale, and also as part of the 2008 Winter in Florence. And his art is displayed in a 2010 exhibition at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York City. Among the publications of Adi Da's art are The World As Light, Transcendental Realism, and The Spectra Suites.

In Praise of Adi Da Samraj

'I regard Heart-Master Adi Da as one of the greatest teachers in the Western world today.'
--Irina Tweedie, Sufi teacher; author, Chasm of Fire

'He is a great teacher with the dynamic ability to awaken in his listeners something of the divine Reality in which he is grounded, with which he is identified, and which in fact, he is.'
--Israel Regardie, Author, The Golden Dawn

'It is obvious, from all sorts of subtle details, that he knows what IT's all about . . . a rare being.'
--Alan Watts, Author, The Way of Zen, Man and Woman, In My Own Way

'I regard the work of Adi Da and his devotees as one of the most penetrating spiritual and social experiments happening on the planet in our era.'
--Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D. Host, PBS Series Thinking Allowed and author.

Praise for Not-Two Is Peace

'Absolutely brilliant. Undauntingly honest. Staggeringly bold. A breathtaking call to humankind to wake up'
--Charmian Anderson, Doctor of Transpersonal Psychology and author.

'Profound wisdom on the root of human conflict, and the path away from a grim destiny. An astonishing gift'
--Jonathan Lynch, Professor, Pennsylvania State University

More About the Author

Adi Da was born in New York at the outbreak of World War II. From 1983 he lived principally in Fiji and became a Fijian citizen. The author of over sixty books on spirituality and a prolific artist, he also had profound attention for world affairs, particularly during the last decade of his life, as summarized in Not-Two Is Peace.
Adi Da was born in a unique spiritual state. As a young man, he immersed himself in the traditions of human wisdom and spirituality. His Western studies included university degrees--in philosophy from Columbia and in literature from Stanford. Following his university years, he intensively engaged both Western and Eastern forms of spiritual practice.
In 1970, at the age of thirty, Adi Da was re-established in the illumined condition he had known in his earliest life. He began to offer formal instruction in spiritual practice to those who came to him, creating (out of a free interactive participation with his devotees) what is now an unprecedented body of spiritual, philosophical, and practical writings (find the most current offerings at the Dawn Horse Press website), as well as an immense body of visual art (the website dedicated to Adi Da's art is called Daplastique). In 2007, his artwork was exhibited at the 52nd Venice Biennale, and subsequently in several other exhibitions, including in Florence, New York, and Los Angeles.
As spiritual teacher, artist, and "World Friend", Adi Da is not a conventional figure. He is not political in any ordinary sense of the word. Rather, his address to humanity comes from his lifelong communication of the truth of human existence. He is making clear the species-endangering forces of limitation in our world, the means to go beyond them, and the great urgency of this "going beyond".

I've read a lot of books about diet. I've never read a book like this before. The recommendations in this book will not only restore and preserve your physical health, but your emotional and spiritual health as well. The surprise section on fasting is practical, comprehensive, and unique. Excellent work - highly recommended!

I found this book very useful in learning how to use the raw diet and how to adapt to the diet. I especially found the three phases of health process very useful in learning what to expect and what is 'normal'. I also loved the blended green drink recipe.

I am a little obsessive about Raw Foods - I have forty books on the subject. The earliest publications on my shelf are from the 1960s (Dr Ann Wigmore, Dr Herbert Shelton and Dr Bircher-Benner) and I have always enjoyed finding out about how the body works through fasting and experimenting with food-taking. When I began reading Adi Da's books on the Searchless Raw Diet I gained something extra.
His first book on this topic was written in the 1970s, two more have followed. Adi Da says we are all addicts, ego-bound, and seeking to feel good. We do it with food-taking in a big way, so even though there is a Raw Food Revolution happening across the world at present, and even though he insists that the Raw diet is the best diet for health, Adi Da stresses throughout Green Gorilla that whether raw food or otherwise, all diets are a source of fascination either for good health, for gourmet cuisine or for sensory satisfaction and that this approach is not a lawful one.
Based on his own examination and experimentation, Adi Da addresses the egoic misunderstandings which cause us to settle for one diet or another. He tells us that the body is basically a food-body. It doesn't need to be cured. We just need to stop bothering it with self-indulgent habits of life which throw it out of balance and if the body is established in a lawful position, the body (in conjunction with its natural energies) will right itself.
Both Naturopaths and Allopaths are criticized equally for being caught in a conventional ego-based and search-bound approach to healing which assumes that people are patients to whom all manner of cure must be applied. Adi Da emphasizes that the obsessive or fanatical seeking-approach that looks for magic cures is not the approach given by him.
