Author Info
Ram Dass
Ram Dass (ne Richard Alpert) was born in Boston in 1931 and enjoyed a privileged upbringing as the son of a well-to-do lawyer. He studied psychology at Tufts and Wesleyan and earned his Ph.D. in human development from Stanford. While teaching at Harvard in the early 1960s, he and his colleague Timothy Leary explored the effects of psychedelic drugs on consciousness, which led university officials to fire them both. Being fired gave Alpert the freedom to travel and explore consciousness independently. On a trip to India in 1967, he met Neem Karoli Baba (a.k.a Maharaj-ji), a mystic and Hindu monk--a meeting that changed Alpert's life dramatically. Maharaj-ji rechristened him Ram Dass ("he who serves God") and took him under his wing to study yoga, meditation, and the spiritual benefits of selfless service. Ram Dass went on to establish several charitable service organizations and to write the classic BE HERE NOW, which outlines the tenets of yoga in a colorful and conversational style that was very popular with young seekers. Through the 1980s and '90s, he continued to write and record audiobooks about meditation, service, and compassion. His active schedule of service, writing, and lecturing was interrupted in 1997 by a stroke which paralyzed half his body and made speaking very difficult. By 1998, he had largely recovered, and in 2000 he wrote the best-selling STILL HERE, a meditation on aging and death. Through his writing, teaching, and philanthropic work, he has embodied the philosophy of enlightenment through giving.
