A COMPREHENSIVE REFERENCE EXPLORING
A BROAD SPECTRUM OF LIFE AND THE UNIVERSE
No God, no Brahma can be found,
No mater of this wheel of life,
Just bare phenomena roll
Dependent on conditions all!
Unlike an animal, man requires more than mere physical comfort and needs help to cope with his frustration and miseries arising from his daily experience. We seem to have an instinctive urgent to seek the Truth, but somehow lack the capacity to find it. The dilemma of trying to set up an absolute standard is merely one of the many puzzles that have harassed mankind since the dawn of civilization. Man's search for Truth has been a never-ending obsession. The Ultimate Theory of The Universe is a bridge between modern science and Buddhism. The author had tried to use Buddhism as a compass for the people of the 21st century. It seeks to answer major questions about Buddhism relation to modern science.
ARRANGED INTO THIRTEEN COMPREHENSIVE SECTIONS
It isn't fair to say that despite all the scientific progress achieved and the advantages conferred on man, science leaves the inner world basically unchanged. It has only heightened man's feeling of dependence and insufficiency, and has barely scratched the surface of man's inner world. Modern scientists are on the verge of crises for new guidance for their research in the 21st century because of new technologies, which have shed light on new discoveries that contradict with the Standard Model and the Big Bang theory.
In addition to its failure to bring security to mankind, science has also made everyone feel even more insecure by threatening the world with the possibility of wholesale destruction. On the other hand, it is not difficult to understand that many of the views held in many religions regarding the cosmos and life are just conventional thoughts of which have long been superseded. It is a general truth to say that religions have greatly contributed to human development and progress. They have laid down value and standards and formulated principles to guide human life. But, for all the good they have done, religions can no longer survive in the modern scientific age if the followers insist on imprisoning truth into set forms and dogmas, on encouraging ceremonies and practices which have been depleted of their original meaning.
Technology has pushed us to the brink of advancement. But the new discoveries and achievements in science are contradicting to the accepted classic theories of today. This conflict calls for a new platform of alignment to guide the world to
• Includes transmissions of wisdom teachings of the great sages Gotama Sakyamuni, Nagarjuna, Shankara, and Ribhu
• Presents classic texts of spiritual realization from the perspective of a Realized Teacher
• Provides insight into the ultimate realization possible when dualistic consciousness has been transcended
In this book Avatar Adi Da Samraj offers his unique renderings of the dharma of the great sages of Advaita Vedanta and Buddhism, including Gotama Sakyamuni, Nagarjuna, Shankara, and Ribhu. Rather than simply translate their teachings from available source texts, Avatar Adi Da, himself a Realized Master, respeaks them as one who has personally realized their truth, revealing that the Buddhist “Nirvana” and the Advaitic “Brahman” point to the same transcendental condition. Avatar Adi Da’s transmissions restore to these texts the profound communication intended by the spiritual masters who created them.
The ego nurtures the illusion of separation, an illusion that cannot be removed by the ego’s own efforts. It is only the spiritual master who makes possible the realization of egoless consciousness. The great sages proclaimed a state of spiritual realization that exceeded both worldly dualism and mystical seeking. They had awakened to a reality that spoke of abiding in a state of consciousness only. Avatar Adi Da brings these remarkable declarations back to life and then concludes with his own unique description of a realization that transcends even these extraordinary utterances--the realization of Reality As It Is, free of all forms of the ego’s search.

pa·ra·mi·ta: ferrying over to the other shore; perfection
The Heart Sutra and the Diamond Sutra are essential reading for those who practice Buddhism. Over the past thirteen centuries, however, the larger work to which they belong has been available only in Chinese. Now, for the first time, English speakers can access the first twenty fascicles of The Great Prajna Paramita Sutra, regarded as the largest canon in Buddhism.
The Great Prajna Paramita Sutra demonstrates how one can become a bodhisattva -- and eventually a Buddha -- transcending self-interest to reach a state of emptiness, selflessness, and nonattachment. Regardless of where you are on the path to enlightenment, you’ll be nourished by the parables and dialogues within.
