In 2008, Adi Da personally directed the development of the first
Transcendental Realism calendar of His Divine Image-Art —
including its monumental scale, quality of image reproduction, and
layout. The calendar has brought great joy and beauty to the home
of devotees, Da Plastique public contacts, families and friends
for the last nine years.
2018 marks the tenth consecutive year Da Plastique
has produced an Image-Art calendar. We are thrilled to announce
that the 2018 Transcendental Realism calendar is now at the printer!
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Bhagavan Adi Da's Divine
Mahasamadhi, the 2018 Image-Art calendar features Transcendental
Drawings that Adi Da created between 1967 and 1982. All quotations
in this calendar are drawn from Adi Da's previously unpublished
early journal writings from 1970-1971.
Of His early Transcendental Drawings, Adi Da said:
The process, or disposition, in which I have developed paintings
and drawings is a different one than civilized people tend
to be in psychologically. It is a process of direct, even
sensuous, involvement with what is before me. It is not about
looking at and trying to duplicate the appearance of an object.
Rather, it is constantly referring to the subject, relating
to its form. In some sense, my artwork is like a love relationship
in which you are intimately related to another in a unified
pleasure-sense and explore all the forms of that person in
various ways, randomly and spontaneously. It is a way of dealing
with the formal existence of all relations without introducing
the sense of separation. It is participatory.
