Ram Dass is the founder of the Love Serve Remember Foundation and cofounder of the Seva Foundation, the Dying Project, and the Prison Ashram Project. His landmark book Be Here Now sold two-million-copies. Ram Dass is also the author of How Can I Help, Compassion in Action and Still Here, which he finished writing after a debilitating stroke.
The name Ram Dass means “servant of God.” In his books he humbly offers deep truths about being both human and spiritual beings.
“What we require, in order to re-imagine the process of getting older as a healing path, is simply the knowledge that we are more than our bodies and minds. Once we’ve begun to experience Soul consciousness in daily life, we find that it offers great relief from the pain, fear, loss, anger, and other difficult mind-states that arise with aging.” Ram Dass
In the 1960s Ram Dass left his teaching position at Harvard to blaze a new spiritual trail shaped by the awakening consciousness of a generation seeking fulfillment and meaning in their lives. He helped show us how to find peace within ourselves. Ram Dass’s words continue to comfort us as we age. He invites people in their later years to explore the joys, pains and opportunities of aging and to approach the mystery of dying with curiosity and love.
