Ram Dass on ageing and death

I have always found Ram Dass very endearing. He is funny, smart, willing to admit his own weaknesses, direct, gentle, and helpful. I found this book satisfying, and will listen to it many times to try to keep the eternal perspective he talks about. You would probably have to be on some kind of spiritual path, or at least be open to talk about souls to get through it, of course. Hearing him age gracefully and with his humor intact is inspiring to me, and I recommend this book to people who fear ageing and death.

Great reminder of our physical mortality

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to every body. It is a great reminder that our physical bodies will age and grow old and being trapped in it is a hindrance to our liberation. I still have a long way to go to attain full realization of this but Ram Dass, again, has peeled another layer of insecurity in me.


Who was your favorite character and why?

His letter to the family of the girl that was killed couldn't have been written more eloquently expressed and I saw from the documentary "Fierce Grace" that it greatly helped them deal with the pain of this terrible loss. Things spoken/written from heart to heart has God's grace in it. Peace.


Any additional comments?

Ram Dass, may your "tribe" increase.
