Biography
Dr. Richard Alpert, now known as Ram Dass has become one of America's most prominent practicing Hindus as well as a major advocate of Eastern thinking and meditational practice. Born in 1931 into a prominent Jewish family in Boston, Dass studied psychology in college, focusing on human motivation and personality. He received an M.A. from Wesleyan and a Ph. D. from Stanford. This academic thread lead to a faculty position at Stanford, and from 1958 to 1963 Dass taught and researched at Harvard.

There he explored human consciousness with Dr. Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley, Allen Ginsberg, and others. The main ingredient of these studies was the use of psilocybin ("shrooms"), LSD, and other psychedelic chemicals, and the controversial nature of the use of such substances eventually led to Leary and Dass' dismissal from Harvard in 1963. The two relocated and continued their research in New York until 1967, wherein Dass travelled to India.

It was in India that Richard Alpert became Ram Dass (meaning servant of God) after becoming involved in meditative practice and yoga with Hindu guru Neeb Karori Baba. Since 1968, Dass has been a major force in a variety of spiritual practices, the support of psychedelic research, increasing environmental awareness, and fostering political action. In the United States he has been the founder of many organizations that support these interests, as well as a sought-after lecturer and the author of many best selling books.

In 1997, after beginning the groundwork for a talk radio program called "Here and Now with Ram Dass", Ram unfortunately suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed. While he had to postpone plans for the radio program, he has been able to take on teaching commitments and is utilizing his physical experience as a way of exploring the spiritual aspects of the aging process. Ram Dass continues to teach about the nature of consciousness and the ideal of service as the one true goal of spirituality.
