Looking for Ram Dass quotes to support your spiritual journey?

You’re in the right place!

First, who is Ram Dass?

The late Baba Ram Dass was an American spiritual teacher, Harvard psychologist, and psychedelic pioneer of the 1960s and 1970s.

He helped popularize Eastern spirituality and yoga in the West.

Ram Dass’ most famous story was when Harvard fired him and his research partner, Timothy Leary.

The two kindred spirits conducted the first-ever controlled US study on psychedelic drugs and mystical experiences called The Good Friday Experiment.

Both had a quest to know the soul and explore the outer dimensions of consciousness. 

After the Harvard dismissal, he continued his search for enlightenment, leading him on a fateful trip to India in 1967, where he met Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji)

From there, his dharmic life started. He returned to America with a renewed sense of purpose and devoted his life to helping others free from bondage by living in the moment. 

He had a full and adventurous life nonetheless!
