Publisher's Summary

Ram Dass, one of America's most beloved spiritual teachers, sparked a revolution 40 years ago with the publication of Be Here Now. This landmark classic inspired an entire generation to see the world in a different light. Over the past four decades, Ram Dass has been a beacon for seekers worldwide, challenging us to find new sources of meaning and purpose in our lives.

Be Love Now is the third book in a trilogy that began with Be Here Now and was followed by Still Here, Ram Dass's acclaimed work on aging, changing, and dying. In Be Love Now, Ram Dass shares what he has learned in his remarkable four-decade-long spiritual journey. Through timeless teaching stories, compelling and often humorous personal anecdotes, and soul-stirring insights, Ram Dass tracks the stages of his own awakening in his trademark down-to-earth style.

Starting with his days as Harvard psychologist and psychedelic inventurer, continuing through his profound encounters with his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, and moving beyond the reawakening brought on by his near-fatal stroke, Ram Dass shares his life experiences while offering a timeless teaching on love and the path of the heart.

Guiding us through the pitfalls and perils of our own spiritual path, Be Love Now is both a deeply personal and wonderfully universal exploration that will open hearts and minds. Ram Dass once again blazes a new trail, inviting all to join him on this next stage of the journey.

    "Ram Dass great/ narrater close to terrible"

    having followed ram dass for almost half a century, this book is a must. however i would rather have found the book as the narrator is bad~~he mangles many of the indian terms, city names as well as people's names~~~~. In addition it felt to me that he was just reading and did not himself understand what he was reading. Oh well....If the book is close by i would recommend you buy it instead.

    "Another great one from Ram Dass but for the reader"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Listening to this book was a pain. The narrator, who constantly struggled with the word Maharaji, was terrible I couldn't get past Chapter 2, had to turn to another book. Can somebody please reread and reissue this book? The narrator did not do justice to the message. The substance was lost in the reading and any article by the master, Ram Dass, is excellent and enlightening. Ram Dass is the ultimate teacher and I revere him with all my heart but the reader was just terrible. As the other reader suggested, maybe just get the book...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dan Woren’s performances?

    Not on your life.


    Any additional comments?

    Please reread and reissue this book!

    "LOVED IT; LOVE RAM DASS and the teachings"

    If you love Ram Dass, you will want to get this book because it is as inspiring and on point as any teachings Ram Dass has given. It will not disappoint. The narrator does a fine job. Only wish it was much longer, more involved, and more stories. Ram Dass is an iconic legend.

    "Hippy dippy sillyness"

    I am a skeptic so this book was not meant for me. I was open to hearing about this lifestyle but the descriptions did not sell me.

    The stories are interesting and would be world shattering (gurus curing blindness and disease) if there were any sort of proof to them. We are supposed to believe very fantastical stories about these gurus based on heresay. Heresay provided by people on psychedelic drugs. And to be completely honest, many of the gurus kind of sound like delusional a-holes.

    That's not to say, the book is completely without merit. I think the concept of stripping away your ego and living in the moment is very important and relevant. The small portion where Ram Dass describes going back home and dealing with the "real world" after his experiences in India was the most interesting part of the book. I think there could have been very useful insight there but it was a very short section.

    If you already buy into this philosophy you will probably eat this up. But if you are a skeptic just curious about other lifestyles it will not change your mind.
