Over the past five decades, the heart wisdom of Ram Dass has been an oasis for so many who are seeking new perspective and direction in their spiritual lives.
The time he spent with his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, set him on a path of service, and inspired him to share his practices with anyone seeking spiritual guidance. These practices help us live in a way that awakens our hearts and minds, and alleviates suffering in ourselves and others. They help us to bridge the gap between our egos and our souls – who we think we are, and who we really are.
With this in mind, we decided to create a collection of teachings on topics that are some of the key ingredients for awakening. These are topics that, in our experience, most resonated with people who are looking to inhabit “be here now” in a truly authentic way.
This scrapbook contains some of Ram Dass’ most potent teachings on awareness, meditation, relationships, unconditional love, and service/compassionate action, which reflect his journey over these many years. Our hope is that you will not only find truth, wisdom, and joy in these pages, but you will share what you find with your family and friends.
Thank you for bringing this Cookbook for Awakening into your home, and your heart.
