I've been reading "Journey of Awakening" and have been
quite impressed with what Ram Dass has to say.
I first heard of the man in one of Mark Epstein's books
("Going on Being" I think).
I don't know much about him and would be interested
to know more, especially about his Guru (aparently
Ram Dass had some very interesting experiences with
him - gave him lots of acid which had no affect on the
mad, he could read Ram Dass's mind and other such
fantastical stuff)...
I gleaned thro "Still Here" at the book store and
found this article online after his stroke:

Any particularly slanderous material about him ? just

"no-mind un-thinks no-thought..."

I just finished that book a couple weeks ago. Really awesome book, Ram Dass is a great teacher. I think I read on here that he was homosexual at one point, but I dunno if theres any truth to that.
