Followers of Adi Da will appreciate this compendium of his work, now available in the form of a handy (and weighty) volume containing over 1000 pages. It is accurately described as a "Source Text" which Jeffrey J. Kripal (Prof. of Religious Studies, Rice University) likens to a modern day gnostic gospel. It's a rigorous read, but if one invests the time toward understanding the essential argument, the rewards will be immense.

(this review comes from a long-time student but not a formal member of Adidam)
As far as i can tell (so that describes a limitation right there) this is THE book regarding spirituality, where spirit (pneuma) is defined as Spirit-Breath and Transmission from the Master.
It is so rich in size, scope, complexity and depth as to be overwhelming at times and at other times simply enjoyable.
It is worth it, for Adi Da's re-telling of the Christian Gospel alone.
