Rameshwar Das, co-author of BEING RAM DASS, will talk with Asheville-based Dr. Saraswati Markus Anand about the newly published memoir of the spiritual teacher, who died in December of 2019. Ram Dass, formerly Richard Alpert Ph.D., was a Harvard psychology professor who partnered with Timothy Leary in psychedelic research, and later traveled to India and met a guru. He learned yoga and meditation which he brought back to the West, and in 1971 his groundbreaking book, BE HERE NOW, became a backpacker’s bible for a generation of spiritual seekers. Rameshwar Das is an East Hampton writer and photographer who knew Ram Dass over fifty years.

Rameshwar Das has been navigating a spiritual path for 50 years. Ramesh met Ram Dass in 1968 and spent time with Neem Karoli Baba in India from 1970-72. He learned Vipassana meditation from Goenka in India. Ramesh has worked as an artist, photographer, environmentalist, and writer. He has collaborated on many projects with Ram Dass over the years, including the original Be Here Now and the Love Serve Remember recordings, and is co-author with Ram Dass on three books, Be Love Now (2010), Polishing the Mirror (2013), and Being Ram Dass (2021).
