RAM DASS NOW is a blog project celebrating a publishing event: the 40th anniversary of the publication of BE HERE NOW, the BE HERE NOW e-book (October 2010), and Ram Dass’s next hardcover, BE LOVE NOW (October 2010).
At RAM DASS NOW, seven participants are mindfully working their way through 108 sacred pages of BE HERE NOW, in just as many days. This is where they come to share their thoughts and experiences. Ram Dass will participate on a regular basis, responding to the participants, his readers, his community, and his friends.
ABOUT RAM DASS
Ram Dass first went to India in 1967. He was still Dr. Richard Alpert, an already eminent Harvard psychologist and psychedelic pioneer with Dr.Timothy Leary. He had continued his psychedelic research until that fateful Eastern trip in 1967, when he traveled to India. In India, he met his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, affectionately known as Maharajji, who gave Ram Dass his name, which means “servant of God.” Everything changed then—his intense dharmic life started, and he became a pivotal influence on a culture that has reverberated with the words “Be Here Now” ever since. Ram Dass’s spirit has been a guiding light for three generations, carrying along millions on the journey, helping free them from their bonds as he has worked his way through his own.
