Adi Da's devotees have written many books or booklets that are either directly about Adi Da and the Way of Adidam, or about a subject that resonates with or supports these primary subjects. We've organized some of those books below, ordered by name of author.

Note: Many of the books below have Adi Da and Adidam as their primary focus. However, only a few of the books below are technically "books of Adidam", that is, books formally released by the Adidam Institution (generally through The Dawn Horse Press): Naamleela Free Jones' The Danavira Mela Book; Mei-Ling Israel's The World As Light; Carolyn Lee's Adi Da, The Avatar of What Is, and The Promised God-Man Is Here; James Steinberg's Divine Distraction and Love of the God-Man; and Toni Vidor's Beyond the Illusion.
