520    "Professor Richard Alpert's star fell fast. To the dismay 
       of his wealthy Boston family, he got fired from Harvard 
       over experimental use of psychedelics with his psychology 
       students. In 1967, he traveled to India to lick his wounds
       and find himself. And he did, at Neem Karoli Baba's ashram,
       in a direct encounter with unconditional, unlimited divine
       love. He returned to America as Baba Ram Dass, 
       countercultural activist for expanded human consciousness.
       As a spiritual guide, at the bedside of the dying, and as 
       a stroke survivor, he has always been ahead of his time, 
       pulling the world along behind him. The author of over a 
       dozen books, he now shares for the very first time the 
       full story of how his life of service intersected with an 
       era of profound cultural upheaval. From the details of his
       groundbreaking research in psychedelics to his bumpy path 
       to becoming a spiritual icon, from his struggles with his 
       sexual identity to what it was like to find out in his 
       late 70s that he was a father and grandfather, Ram Dass 
       traces the pivotal points of his life against the backdrop
       of a mind opened by drugs, and a heart opened by a guru. 
       Ram Dass brought America yoga, the use of psychedelics in 
       psychotherapy, and a revolution in how we relate to death 
       and dying. He has opened the door to the most important 
       and healthiest conversations about the heart and mind in 
       our culture. With this book, he opens his heart and mind 
       to us"--|cProvided by publisher.
