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.
