The Bhagavad Gita is a gem so precious in India's spiritual treasury that many regard it not as a volume of sacred verse, but as a living manifestation of the Divine. In the summer of 1974, inside a balmy Boulder, Colorado, warehouse that served as a main hall of a fledgling Naropa Institute, some say a minor miracle occured: The reawakening of the Gita's living presence, as it unfolded in a series of wisdom teachings led by Ram Dass. With Love, Service, Devotion, and the Ultimate Surrender, you are invited to experience these legendary gatherings.

This is a wonderful series of lectures. I enjoyed the words of wisdom of his Guru Maharaji. The stories he tells are funny, engaging and insightful. There are many topics covered here and I will be listening to this one again and again. His delivery is fantastic. This set of lectures is a gift!
Ram Dass relays his personal trajectory of self realization. Exceeded my expectations; I could not stop listening. His path to enlightenment was interesting and honest. Loved it.
I enjoy listening to Ram Dass tell stories. He is a wonderful storyteller, full of humor and amazing life experiences. However, many of his spiritual experiences involved the use of psychedelic drugs. Due to my background and history, I am predisposed to discount such experiences. For those of you who do not suffer from this hang-up, it's a very amusing read.
I would not recommend this book because it simply did not resonate with me. I am not very interested in metaphysics, and I am very uninterested in stories where drugs play a central theme. I do not believe in the transformative power of LSD, and I'm not very interested in that, anyway. I am much more interested in "ordinary" human experience and human relationships.
Ram Dass is a well-loved and venerable author and historian. If you love Ram Dass, you will love this book.
The book was entertaining, but I did feel that the discussion of more metaphysical matters were uninteresting.
A great book for people who love Ram Dass and his funny stories. I did not find it particularly illuminating, and I wish I had used my credit to purchase something else.
I would absolutely recommend this to those looking for clear and uncomplicated speech on the subject of spirituality from a variety of traditions. He does a beautiful job of blending and weaving his thoughts with spiritual traditions and practices to create a wonderfully pleasing and enlightening presentation.
This is an amazing audiobook of Ram Dass' lectures at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado back in the late 70s. It is a mix of Buddhist teaching, Hindu teachings and Christian teachings. Fantastic, but be warned, Ram Dass was a Harvard Professor with Timothy Leary and talks quite a bit about his experiences with psychedelics.
