Needs a Little Seasoning!
on 14 November 2014
Ram Dass is extensively known throughout the world as an important advocate of the Eastern system of spirituality. Born as an American Jew he traveled extensively through India during the 1960s to study at the feet of Indian gurus.
This book is part reflection on his life and experiences coupled with his insights and understandings of the Eastern approach to spirituality.
As a book of personal memoirs I found it actually falls between these two stools and singularly failed to excite or stimulate any deeper interest or singular attention in me. However, that is not to say that it is a bad or poorly-written publication - I just feel that it will mainly serve the interests of the followers of Dass and those who resonate more deeply than I do to his Eastern philosophy of 'being here now'.
If you enjoy the authors writings and teachings then this will be a book to add to your understanding of how this renowned spiritual teacher is unfolding his own personal philosophy on his life whilst approaching his final years (Dass is now in his 80s).
For others, reading it might leave a sensation a bit like chewing second hand chewing gum - hard work and flavourless!
