“Desire is the Creator, Desire is the Destroyer, Desire is the Universe”
-From “Be Love Now“
Ram Dass (born Richard Alpert) is a disciple of Neem Karoli Baba, better known as Maharajji.
We learn how Babaji affected the lives of all around him and was the reservoir of unconditional love & how Maharajji transcends beyond Space & Time and still appears to those who seek him. Julia Roberts converted to Hinduism after seeing his picture and he is a major influence on Tech Giants like Steve Jobs & Mark Zuckerberg.
In Be Love Now, Ram Dass describes his journey from Harvard to India, the path of surrender and methods on how to surmount your ego while, he turns the concept of Love, Space & Time on their head.
He also describes how the ultimate journey of all people is to attain liberation and lays out his own journey. Laced with quotes from Scripture, other Religious Gurus and his own conversations with Maharajji, “Be Love Now” is a fascinating read in which we see Ram Dass’s utter devotion to Maharajji and how it is his path to liberation.
None of the Books are an essential read, but “Be Love Now” is a great book to have.
