Over the summer I had the opportunity to watch Ram Dass: Fierce Grace on Netflix. If you have not had the pleasure of viewing this film, I highly recommend it.
Dass, formerly known as Dr. Richard Alpert, is a fascinating figure who was once a Harvard Professor, an "experimenter" in "mind expansion," and a spiritual seeker who traveled to many places searching for enlightenment.
I was so fascinated by his story that I began listening to a series of podcasts that feature talks he has given. I also read his most famous book, Be Here Now. Both are incredibly interesting and made me reflect deeply upon my own journey.
Dass is certainly not going to be appreciated by everyone, but he has made a huge impact on me. Below are some quotes from Dass to reflect upon. If they ring true to you, I encourage you to check out the links above.
