“Love everyone and tell the truth” Maharajji
A short movie entitled “Love Serve Remember” tracing Ram Dass’ journey from Be Here Now to Be Love Now. And of course he’s talking mostly about Neem Karoli Baba! Taken from the free broadcast of Krishna Das and Ram Dass event of 2010 November 30th in New York City.
Ram Dass first went to India in 1967. He was still Dr. Richard Alpert, an already eminent Harvard psychologist and psychedelic pioneer with Dr.Timothy Leary. He had continued his psychedelic research until that fateful Eastern trip in 1967, when he traveled to India. In India, he met his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, affectionately known as Maharajji, who gave Ram Dass his name, which means “servant of God.” Everything changed then – his intense dharmic life started, and he became a pivotal influence on a culture that has reverberated with the words “Be Here Now” ever since. Ram Dass’s spirit has been a guiding light for three generations, carrying along millions on the journey, helping free them from their bonds as he has worked his way through his own.
