Description

Ram Dass is an American psychologist and spiritual teacher who has studied and practiced meditation for many years.  Here he shares his understanding and explores the many paths of meditation--from mantra, prayer, singing, visualizations, and "just sitting" to movement meditations such as tai chi--and suggests how you can find methods suitable for you.  He illuminates the stages and benefits of meditative practice, and provides wise and often humorous advice on overcoming difficulties along the way.




About the Author
Born Richard Alpert, Ram Dass was given his Hindu name (meaning "Servant of God") by his Indian guru, Neem Karoli Baba. His personal search for fulfillment spans a broad spectrum, from psychedelic research at Harvard University to a diversity of spiritual practices, including various forms of yoga, Zen meditation, Buddhist Theraveda and Sufism.


Ram Dass is the author of the landmark classic Be Here Now and the acclaimed Still Here and Be Love Now. After meeting his guru in India in 1967, Ram Dass became a pivotal spiritual influence on American culture.
