There are few people who search for “truth” wherever it might lead. Most of us are held back by fear, excuses, or lack of passion. Ram Dass (born Richard Alpert) was a man who had many changes in life, but pursued his inner light and was able to say that Dying is Absolutely Safe.
I encountered Ram Dass when I was new to meditation back in 2003, but his influence will live on in me. I have only really just begun to consider what he had to say about existence.
