Avatar Adi Da’s Call for World Peace

“The presumption of prior unity—rather than the conflict between opposing identities—needs to be the basis for life in human society.” —Avatar Adi Da

Throughout his life, Avatar Adi Da called for cooperation, tolerance, and peace among all people for the sake of our fragile planet and the many creatures living on it. He did this not as a political figure, but in his role as “World-Friend”, out of his compassionate blessing-response to humanity and to all living beings.

As a human being, recognizing the prior unity of the world, you must have concern for Earth itself, and all the species within it, and all life within it, all structures and forms and processes that are part of the world, including all the non-humans.

In that spirit, Avatar Adi Da always maintained steadfast attention on the state of the world, and frequently concentrated in intensive vigils during times of global crisis. He established his primary hermitage in Fiji, on the meridian of the international dateline, as a sign that his wisdom addresses both East and West, going beyond ego-made boundaries to embrace all of humanity as “literally one family”.

A global transformation is now required in human culture—after the devastation, or collapse, of ego-civilization in the twentieth century. Something entirely new is required—something comprehensively right.

Prior Unity

Avatar Adi Da wrote his calling for global transformation in the book Not-Two Is Peace: The Ordinary People’s Way of Global Cooperative Order, together with its companion volume, Prior Unity: The Basis For A New Human Civilization. In these books he points to the urgent need to establish the human collective—global civilization itself—on the working presumption of “prior unity”, and offers insight into the root cause of human conflict. He also outlines the means by which all of us, “everybody-all-at-once”, can address the dire state of today’s world, giving us the gift of a new paradigm for the transformation of our collective destiny.

The world is a madhouse...full of illusions. Nevertheless, the potential of sanity is always priorly the case. Now sanity must come to the front. Human beings must now presume to act and live in the inherently sane manner of prior unity—and of the Indivisible Prior Truth That Is Reality Itself.

—Avatar Adi Da Samraj
Prior Unity

A new kind of human consciousness is required—based on the working-presumption of prior unity, and on an understanding of the indivisibly single world in which everyone is living. This involves not only the notion that there is such a single world, but it requires grasping the necessity for cooperation, and the necessity to function on the basis of an understanding that the Earth is a single system, and humankind (likewise) is a single whole.

The really-existing inherent collective of humankind has inherent power. The “everybody-all-at-once” has the inherent characteristic (and integrity) of prior unity and the inherent capability (and integrity) of a self-organizing principle. Power in the hands of a few cannot manipulate the total collective, if the total collective exercises its inherent power of prior unity and self-organizing energy.
