Author's Bio: 

Born in 1931, Ram Dass studied psychology in school, specializing in human motivation and personality development. After receiving an M.A. from Wesleyan and a Ph.D. from Stanford, Dass served on the psychology faculties at Stanford and the University of California.

From 1958 to 1963, Dass taught and did research at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, as well as in Harvard’s Department of Social Relations. In 1961, he explored human consciousness and collaborated with professionals like Timothy Leary to research psilocybin, LSD-25, and other psychedelic chemicals. Because of the controversial nature of this research, Dass was dismissed from Harvard in 1963.

Four years later, Dass traveled to India, where he studied yoga and meditation. There he met his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba, and received the name Ram Dass, which means “servant of God.” Since 1968, he has pursued a variety of spiritual practices, including guru kripa, devotional yoga focused on the Hindu spiritual figure Hanuman, karma yoga, and Sufi and Jewish studies.
