In 1970, Ram Dass' "Be Here Now" became the counter-culture bible for thousands of young people seeking enlightenment in the midst of the darkness of Vietnam. It was a pioneering bridge, written in colloquial language, from the psychedelic 60s to eastern spirituality, and over the years has sold (and continues to sell) more than two million copies. "Be Love Now" is the third book in a spiritual trilogy that started with "Be Here Now" followed by "Still Here" - a four-decade pilgrimage across cultures and spiritual traditions. In "Be Love Now", Ram Dass shows us the way to unconditional spiritual love through personal anecdotes, deep insights, and stories. With wry humour, Ram Dass takes us through pitfalls on the path and paints a view of what an actual state of enlightenment might be like. He explores his experiences with other teachers such as Swami Muktananda, the founder of Siddha Yoga, and John of God, the contemporary Brazilian healer. The different stages of realisation, death and reincarnation are all brought into the context of spiritual evolution.

Be Love Now, The Path of the Heart by Ram Dass is the completion of the trilogy that began with Be Here Now and Still Here. The book is an autobiography, spiritual guidebook, and study of saints and spiritual guru rolled into one. Formerly known as Richard Alpert, Ph.D., Ram Dass was a professor of psychology at Harvard until 1963 when he was fired for his unauthorized experimentation with psychedelic drugs. On a personal quest to understand human consciousness, Alpert traveled to India where he met an Indian guru whom he came to know as Maharaj-ji, and from that moment Ram Dass felt a new sense of love that he had never known before.

Be Love Now is a fascinating book that depicts one man’s journey to enlightenment. Author Ram Dass (with help from Rameshwar Das), shares the knowledge he has gained along his spiritual path through soulful stories, profound teachings and personal anecdotes. From meeting his spiritual teacher/guru unexpectedly, to becoming a teacher himself, Ram Dass tells his story in such a way that provides the reader with lessons that may be used on their own spiritual voyage.
