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.

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!

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.

Love the content but not the peformance

I was generally disappointed with the performance of the reader. He obviously did not know how to pronounce maharaji or psilocybin, or Shiva and a few other words that Ram Dass uses frequently to describe his experiences and substances. I felt as if though he knew nothing about Ram Dass' experiences. And I wondered if anyone had edited or listened previous to publication. That being said great content, great stories!

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.

Ram Dass is always inspiring.

I struggled a bit with the narration... just being used to hearing Ram Dass speak, I was disappointed the performer spoke so differently, pronouncing important words completely differently than Ram Dass did. But Maharaj-ji would say "sub ek" so I did my best to get past it and still felt the love from Ram Dass coming through the words.

Beautiful book about love

I absolutely loved this book and the message of love in it. Made me wish I had experienced all of these moments myself.

Definitely didn’t need and accent when quoting Maharaji. Felt kind of disrespectful . Especially when Ram Dass himself wouldn’t do it when quoting his Guru. Other than that, great read.

This story or biography of Yogis is amazing!

this book or audiobook of the life of round-offs and his realized Guru was one of the best stories I've ever heard and look forward to reading more of his work and of his gurus. Also the storytelling was great. The narrator did a very good job!

Ram Dass was missed

I love Ram Dass and I missed his voice and struggled with the narrator doing Indian accents which sounded like yoda! But as always, the content is second to none.

Buy it!

Ram Dass is an incredibly beautiful person, his words touch me deeply. I recommend all of his books to anyone looking for peace and meaning in their lives. I am 3 generations younger than him but his knowledge is as current now as it ever was!

Ignore the mispronounciations, it's worth it

It's true that the narrator can't pronounce many of the most used words in the book. But I decided to make it a mindfulness practice to not be annoyed when it happened. By the end I was so glad I did. This book is an absolute gem, a wonderful offering from Ram Dass later in life when he's made sense of so much more and has so much more to offer.
