In 1970, Ram Dass' Be Here Now became the counter-culture bible for thousands of young people seeking enlightenment in the midst of the darkness of Vietnam. It was a pioneering bridge, written in colloquial language, from the psychedelic 60s to eastern spirituality, and over the years has sold and continues to sell more than two million copies.

Now in an e-book edition, Ram Dass' message is brought to life for a new generation of seekers. This will be a beautiful digital edition of this classic and enlightening book.

Describes one man's spiritual transformation upon his acceptance of the principles of Yoga.

    This delivers like few other books can

    This may be one of the most intensely moving and emotionally-centered books on spirituality you'll find. Ram Dass paints a glorious and yet completely down-to-Earth route from psychedelic experimentation alone, to mindfulness meditation, the disciplined spiritual life, and the immediacy of felt communion with God. This will nourish you as much as you let your mind open to it. Years of wisdom, love and beauty from spiritually-oriented practices of Indian gurus, are made manifest as a powerful spiritual primer for everyone. Thank you Ram Dass for sharing your journey with us, and for wrestling down the ineffable until it became ready-for-prime-time. Whether we admit it or not, this book contains an itinerary of which all of us are enamored. And we are well served by letting our hearts be moved by it all.

    Find the key to yourself

    This book changed my life. I read it and felt as if I was on the verge of solving the mystery of life. Like some obscure mathematical theory that makes perfect sense when applied, this book tells you everything that instinctively you feel as though you've always known, but were too blind to see. This book was and is the catalyst for my spiritual awakening.

    A reviewer

    This book is by far in my top 5. If you are on your path this book will definitely help you enter into your next stage. I didn't even search for this book. It just fell into my lap one day. That's the way it works. He includes the beauty and essence of the teachings of Jesus as well as Buddha. The words and drawings are very piercing and full of symbolism. He also includes at the end a list of many books that will be useful to read. I recommend this book to everyone with Open ears.

    Cosmic Beauty Evolution

    This is one of those books that will come to you at the exact time that you need it. The words and pictures are stirring. It is a work that must be ingested without judgement and accepted as pure beauty and soulfullness. Baba Ram Das has brought illumination to the world in ways only a fortunate few have yet realized. Love.

    A keeper

    Although the social cultural context in which it was written may make it appear a bit dated, the wisdom comes through crisply. After having lost my original copy years decades ago, I think I enjoyed reading it as much as I did the first time I came across it.

    Enlightening

    I had a copy of this book in the early 70's. One day I loaned it to a friend and never saw it again. Occasionally throughout the years this writing would come to mind and I would talk with a friend about it. I recently made a new friend who during one of our initial conversations told me about a tape she has by Ram Dass talking about his beginning days of Yoga and meditation and I remembered this book. She said she knew about it. It is time for me to get another copy.

    A Book to Span Generations

    First read this book in the '70s, again a decade later. The more one matures, the more one comprehends the message. Three years ago, my son borrowed it and it was never returned. Now, with terminal cancer, I find the need of this book once more. My son can keep the old copy, it will do wonders for him, I'm definitely purchasing another for myself. A book for inner peace.

    Present Moment Awareness

    Ram Dass takes you on a journey into human consciousness until you merge with Spirit. He reminds us that all life revolves around this dance between human consciousness and the Bliss of Divine Union. As one lets go of all their roles and attachments, we are free to be in the present moment where self-centered awareness enters into life-centered awareness. Thanks, Ram Dass, for all you have and continue share on the nature of our most authentic self - spirit.

    If you really have an open mind on spirituality, you will get wonderful insights out of this book. The open minded person will also find new insights about the Western Religions in the books An Encounter With A Prophet and Way of a Peaceful Warrior.

    This book changed the way I thought about books, and about the world.  At the time, the mid 70s, it was completely different from anything else, and is still so very wise.  Thank you Ram Dass and friends.

    overflowing with satisfaction

    Though no one can be satisfied by this book more than the writer himself, I think if you open your heart it will touch you in a most beautiful way. I highly respect this book and the man that shared it with us all.
