Ram Dass visited India for the first time in 1967. Dr. Richard Alpert, an acclaimed Harvard psychologist and psychedelic pioneer with Dr. Timothy Leary, was still Dr. Richard Alpert. He had continued his psychedelic study until his fatal journey to India in 1967. He met his teacher in India, Neem Karoli Baba, also known as Maharajji, who gave him the name Ram Dass, which means servant of God. Everything changed at that point: he began his intense dharmic existence, and he became a crucial figure in a culture that has been reverberating with the words Be Here Now ever since. Ram Dass's spirit has been resurrected.
