I don't expect this to be a hot button topic...just thought he certainly belonged in the 'spiritual' forum

Such a wonderful, inspiring man....
His documentary called 'Going Home' has been on Netflix for quite some time...very much worth watching if you are interested...

"Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) has returned to the Universe. For further instructions, watch the stars at night, pay attention to clouds moving across the sky and listen to the sound of waves as they drum the sand. Open your heart to sunrises and sunsets, to the songs of birds in trees and the laughter of children. Know that everybody (and everything) is the guru..."

Ram Dass, Beloved Spiritual Teacher, Has Died

If there is an enduring figure emblematic of the consciousness revolution of the 1960s and 70s, it is arguably the Harvard professor and LSD researcher-turned-spiritual leader born Richard Alpert but known the world over as Ram Dass. With Timothy Leary, his colleague in the Harvard psychology department, he forever changed a generation of Americans through his explorations with psilocybin, LSD-75, and other psychedelics before reinventing himself as a spiritual teacher and humanitarian—a bhakti yogi with love as his path. When Ram Dass died on Sunday evening, one of the most beloved voices of the counterculture fell silent. He was 88 years old.
