Today my Beloved Elder Guru Brother, Ram Dass, has left his physical body and merged with our guru Neem Karoli Baba.
He has been my friend and teacher and fellow traveler on the Spiritual Path since 1968. I spent the last few days with him and had incredible merging of mind and heart. He was deeply immersed in Maharaj-ji’s presence and during the many years since his stroke, his courage and patience and inner strength was a shining example of how to live in this world, with an ever opening heart, despite much physical pain and hardship.
His mantra was “I am Loving Awareness, I am Loving Awareness.” Now, that is where he is to be found…in the loving presence that lives within us.
Sri Ram Jai Ram jai Jai Ram!!!
