Overview

The World-Friend Adi Da wrote this book out of compassion for humanity’s current plight. Not-Two Is Peace contains Adi Da’s vital wisdom on the root of human conflict: the limits and errors of conventional religion and politics. He points to the necessity of re-establishing human civilization based on principles of mutual trust, cooperation, tolerance, “prior unity”, and the limitless participation of all humankind in transforming its own destiny.
Also included is Adi Da’s “radical” argument for transcending egoity along with his urgent call to found the Global Cooperative Forum a new type of human order. This forum will allow humankind to become conscious of itself as one great coherent force the only force capable of requiring and implementing systemic changes the world needs.
This book is essential study for anyone concerned about the state of global affairs.
He writes: “The old moral, social, and political ‘order’ of humankind is now dead. A new and true and right order of humankind is, now, and forever hereafter, necessary. This Free Declaration is the Seed-Utterance of that new and necessary true and right (and truly globally, totally, and universally cooperative) order.”

Adi Da, the World-Friend (1939 - 2008)

Adi Da was born in New York at the outbreak of World War Two. 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 (see dawnhorsepress.com), as well as an immense body of visual art (see 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”.
